To have a continuous sound playing during a session, find a sound file which is either the duration of the session or can loop or repeat without being annoying or distracting to the client. EEGer is compatible with sound files in .wav format. If the audio file you have is not in this format, you can convert an audio file to .wav using an online converter or a program such as Audacity (free sound editing software). There are many tutorials online on how to convert files if you need to do this.

Once you have the .wav sound file that you would like to use, save it to your computer in a location that you can find in the future. We recommend creating a subfolder within the Games folder of EEGer (C:\EEGer\Games) named 'Custom Sounds'.
