The Brain Shift Radio Player offers you a lot of control over the stimulation you receive. I’ll be posting tips and tricks in this blog (category: BSR User Tips) from time to time. Here is the first one:
You can switch out a rhythm or ambient track in a mix that is loaded (or even playing) in the Playlist.
Here’s how you do it:
1. Start with a track pair in the Playlist
2. Click the icon for one of the tracks (it doesn’t matter which icon)
The Gear icon will turn black
3. Click on the track you want to insert from the Track Browser
The new track will replace the current one
If the track pair you are switching into is currently playing, the new pair will auto-start from the beginning
If the track pair is not the pair playing, the tracks that are playing will continue until the end or until you click the Forward button.
So, if you choose a track pair (or we choose one for you) and you like one of the tracks but not the other, you can switch out either one easily. Be sure to rate the tracks you like or dislike so you can remember next time you choose tracks.
Remember: You can always change your rating later if you choose.
We’re finding that a lot of people are skipping the Auto Mode questions and jumping right into looking for mixes. To make this easier, I selected some mixes to help newbies get the feel for BSR.
You’ll notice that all of these are mixed heavy on the ambient. I did this because many new listeners play the rhythms too loud and some get over-stimulated. So, start with these and adjust the mix (and overall volume) to taste.

Following is a list of starter mixes. You can find them in the Community Mixes listed by name. You can narrow the search by sorting by category.
