What's your tournament mix?

I just realized that I’m totally sick of my tournament mix. Tournament mixes are what you listen to during a tournament to not get distracted. Only inferior players use these… a good player’s mind is like water, like a salmon flowing upstream to the breeding grounds. The flow of the match is like the energy of the universe to those good players, and no sound or comment can distract, because ticks cannot be explained, nor can reversal timing, you just have to know when the moon and the sun comes together in a melding of minds with your opponent.

But anyways, for those of us scrubs that DO use tournament mixes, please post up what yours is. I’m sick of mine and I need new good tourney music.

60 minutes of Freak Nasty - Da Dip.mp3 on repeat

For me it depends on the game:

For SFIV, I’ve just put Utada Hikaru - Celebrate on repeat and make sure to have the song start at the beginning of a match. Randomly enough I don’t listen to it unless I’m playing.

For Marvel and such, It’s usually random Trance and every now and then some Hardcore. That actually is what inspired my avatar “4th assist” Cause I was known back at Silver Coin as “the headphones guy”, anyway in that AV it’s BT, DJ Micro, and Paul Oakenfold along with Magneto, Sentinel, and Tron (I know it’s not a team I play but sentinels pic was looking better than Cables so yeah.

I do need a new 4th assist Avatar though…kinda don’t play marvel like that anymore.


Yo this might sound random but here you go.

Sometimes I listen to this stuff called brain sync. Either this one

High Focus

* Increase cognition & concentration
* Improve hand-eye coordination for sports activities
* Clear mental ?fog? and boost energy

or this one

Brain Power

* Improve memory and concentration
* Initiate ?Big Picture? thinking
* Expand perception
* Gain clarity of thought

and no joke it helps. Maybe I’m a scrub for doing this but I have absolutely seen my gameplay change to being more creative and complex from listening to the brain power one. It was really cool. Apparently when your brain thinks certain things, it thinks them with certain brain wave frequencies and this program replicates those frequencies. It’s really interesting stuff. Like when you sleep, you sleep with long wavelength delta frequencies. So if you were to listen to delta frequencies when u were about to sleep or were sleeping, then you would sleep better.

Real talk though, u r right about this. “The flow of the match is like the energy of the universe, . . .and no sound or comment can distract” Whenever I have played really good I didn’t hear anything. I would watch videos of my matches later and hear all this funny stuff people said and think to myself “wow, I never heard any of that.” Anyways there’s my rant. Hope some of it was useful.

Here is some of the research on it

First discovered by biophysicist Gerald Oster at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, brain wave audio technology sends pure, precisely tuned sound waves of different frequencies to your brain via stereo headphones. In his EEG research, Oster discovered that when different vibrations, or sound frequencies, are delivered to the brain separately through each ear (as with stereo headphones), the two hemispheres of the brain function together to “hear” not the external sound signals, but a third phantom signal. This signal is called a binaural beat, and it pulses at the exact mathematical difference between the two actual tones.

So, for example, if a signal of 100 cycles per second entered your left ear and a signal of 109 cycles per second simultaneously entered your right ear, what you would actually perceive you heard would be a rhythmic, soothing pulsation, beating at 9 cycles per second. Research results show that first parts of the brain and, eventually, large areas of the brain begin to resonate sympathetically with this “phantom” binaural beat in what is known as the Frequency Following Response.

Subsequent research determined that binaural beat frequencies could drive or guide brain activity into a wide variety of specific brain states. Thus, effortlessly and naturally, your brain activity slides into rhythm with this binaural beat, becoming organized and coherent. Within minutes, the sound frequencies start to balance the left and right hemispheres of your brain ? creating a remarkable state called hemispheric synchronization and driving the electrical activity of your brain into powerful states, normally unattainable.

Scientists have noted that this rare phenomenon was accompanied by flashes of creative insight, euphoria, intensely focused concentration, deep calm, and enhanced learning abilities. Brain Sync has advanced and refined a sophisticated sound recording technique called Harmonic Superimposition of binaural beat frequencies. In our audio programs, carefully tuned binaural beats are superimposed, layer upon layer, causing different groups of neurons to fire at different frequencies.

Recent scientific research indicates that individual brain states, ranging from sleep to creativity, are marked by combinations of different brain wave frequencies. Brain Sync’s Harmonic Superimposition technique takes a number of highly specific binaural beat frequencies and combines them simultaneously so that the binaural beats themselves create harmonic beat frequencies with the other binaural beats, to produce a highly specific brain state. The frequencies we’ve chosen for our audio programs are very powerful “window frequencies” ranging from the low delta range, associated with sleep and healing, upward through theta, then alpha, and into the very high beta range associated with heightened alertness and cognition.

Man you gotta use gamefaqs cheats to play marvel?

How do people play with headphones? U cannot hear char sounds which is important

Caffiene + alcohol. Best tournament mix ever.

So Tilt AND Joose? Fuck yeah.
