Creating Subliminal Sound Tracks

Subliminal Sound Track CreationSubliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal audio recordings require creating a sound track.

The purpose of this audio track is either to mask  messages, promote a state of relaxation or potentially both.

This is extremely important in how the subsequent audio components are built and their effectiveness.

Since the sound or masking track is usually most audibly predominant in a recording, it is important to know how to create, select or generate one in the best way possible.

There are two basic ways to consider a masking or sound track. The first is from the listener’s perspective, and the second from the creator’s perspective.

Since you are the creator of the recording, it is vital that you understand both what a potential listener expects and prefers, as well as what your own requirements are for a masking or sound track.

Subliminal Sound Tracks – What the Listener Expects

Subliminal Recording ExpectationsThe listener obviously expects that the recording will be of a high quality and be effective.

They are not concerned with the details of how it was created, but they will expect the masking or sound track that they hear be relaxing, soothing and appeal to them.

This means that as a recording creator, you must ensure that you meet these requirements. Unfortunately, what is relaxing, soothing and appealing to one person may be completely different for another person.

For example, the gentle sounds of ocean waves lapping onto the seashore with birds chirping in the background may be soothing to some, but may trigger a negative reaction in others.

Similarly, listening to the sounds of insects for an extended period may be quite unpleasant for certain individuals. To a lesser degree, classical music without vocals may simply sound uninteresting to some people.

The solution is to provide as wide a variety of masking or sound tracks as possible so that they appeal to the majority of the potential listeners. As simple as this may seem, it can difficult to do in practice. This is the point where the requirements of the listener meet yours, as a creator.

Sound and Masking Tracks – What the Recording Creator Desires

Being a creator of subliminal or other recording types, your preferences with respect to creating or selecting a masking or sound track are different than that of the listener. The most important of these are as follows:

  • Provide the fewest number of masking or sound tracks possible
  • Appeal to the largest number of listeners possible
  • Whether obtaining or generating sound tracks, be of low cost

Subliminal Recording Masking SoundsYou can provide only a small number of masking or sound tracks and still have your potential listeners find them appealing.

But you must select a core group that has been found to be acceptable to most people. The majority of people find nature sounds or gentle classical music to be soothing, relaxing and appealing.

Within the category of nature sounds, there are the sounds of ocean waves, rainfalls, waterfalls, rivers, brooks, wind, a crackling campfire and many others.

It is suggested that you consider providing two or more different types that sound consistent, such as ocean waves and perhaps a gentle rainfall.

Secondary Masking Track Audio Sounds

Even though these are wise choices, a secondary sound track should also be mixed with them. The reason for this is to provide random sounds that render the track more interesting to the ear.

A suggestion is to include additional nature sounds such as different types of birds or insects. Relaxing and soothing is important, but there is no reason for the sound track to seem so consistent that it becomes boring to listen to.

If you were to choose two primary types of nature and two secondary types, then after mixing, you would have four available selections for use as your sound or masking track.

This should be your minimum core group to use, but if you increase the number of primary or secondary sound types, it becomes more difficult to manage and you should not exceed eight.

Keep in mind that this is only the sound or masking track, and you still need to create and manage message and brainwave tracks (if used).

Subliminal Classical Music Sound SourcesClassical music sound tracks are also appealing but it is important that you choose those that are not overly dynamic.

By this it is meant that there should be few high and lows and the general sound and tempo is consistent.

A soft and gentle concerto by Beethoven or Bach is acceptable, but the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky is far too dynamic.

Also, if you choose to use classical music for your sound or masking tracks, there is no reason to mix them with a secondary track containing random sounds of nature.

The reason for this is that most classical music tracks are already reasonably consistent yet still sound interesting.

Sound Track Sources

As a recording creator, you also need to decide whether to obtain your sound or masking tracks from other sources, generate your own with software programs, record them yourself or perhaps a mixture of all three.

Sound Track ResourcesIf you choose to obtain free sound clips or pay for pre-recorded sound tracks, you must be cautious in how you select them.

Many available relate to nature sounds and those that are free are usually very short in length and of poor quality.

It is highly recommended that you do not use free short audio clips in your sound or masking track because of this.

Although usually limited to nature sounds, another option is to obtain software that can generate sound or masking tracks of any length that you can customize in virtually an infinite number of ways.

The advantages to this is that the generated sound track will be exactly what you design it to be, involve no royalty fees, be of high quality, and never have embedded subliminal messages.

You may also select to record your own sound tracks but this can be somewhat of a challenge. It requires the correct environment, good recording equipment and some patience.

Whether it involves nature sounds or classical music, the sound or masking track that you incorporate into your subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recording should be acceptable to your potential listener and be within the limits of your resources as a creator.

You also need to decide if it is best to record your own sound tracks, use prerecorded ones or use software to generate them. Striving for a balance between what options you provide your listeners with and what is manageable for you should be your goal.

How to Listen to Subliminal Recordings Properly

How to Listen to Subliminal Audio RecordingsAs simple as it may seem, listening to a subliminal or other type of self-help recording involves more than just plug in and play.

There are other aspects to the listening experience you should consider if you wish to optimize the effect the recording has.

This article addresses and explains several overlooked important points of listening properly.

Whether you are creating subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recordings for personal use or for others, the bottom line is that they are of no use unless they are listened to correctly and effectively.

Even the highest quality recording will not achieve the targeted goal unless it is used and ideally in the best manner.

Assuming the recording you have created or obtained is designed and constructed appropriately, it will have specific characteristics, depending on what type of recording it is.

You may already understand the differences between subliminal, supraliminal and paraliminal recordings. Because each type is unique, the best way to listen to them should also be unique.

How to Listen to a Subliminal Audio Recording

The principle with a subliminal recording is simple in that there is a message track presented at an almost inaudible level. This track is mixed with an additional sound track that masks the messages and is appealing to the ear.

Relaxing and Listening to Subliminal RecordingsThis type of recording is designed so that you can listen to it at anytime, because it does not require you to be able to relax.

Ironically, it is better to listen to a subliminal recording in a relaxed setting.

This is because there is less resistance to the messages from the subconscious mind when you are relaxed.

This does not mean that you should not listen to it when driving or engaged in activities requiring your attention. It only implies that it can be more effective if your conscious defense mechanisms are lowered.

Listen to a subliminal recording any time possible, but if you have a choice, then choose a time when there are fewer conscious distractions around you.

Another suggestion is that you use headphones to listen to the recording if possible. This is not because there are alternating stereo voices as in a paraliminal recording, but rather that using headphones focuses the message and sound track directly. This also has the advantage of reducing any external sounds from the environment around you.

Volume Levels for Listening to Subliminal RecordingsThe volume at which you listen to a subliminal recording is also important and listening to any type of self-help recording should always be a pleasant experience.

Set the volume of your playback device so that you can hear the masking track (ocean waves, for example), but not so loud in that they become irritating.

Equally important, listening at too low a volume may render the subliminal messages useless because they must be audibly perceptible, even if just barely noticeable.

Adjust your volume to a level most comfortable for you by reducing it from a high point and moving downwards to a desirable setting.

Lastly, if you have the option, select a masking sound track that is acceptable to you. For some, water sounds may induce more frequent bathroom visits, and other people may simply not find the sounds of insects very appealing.

How to Listen to a Supraliminal Audio Recording

As you are likely aware of, supraliminal recordings use message and sound tracks that are completely audible. In addition, they almost always contain initial relaxation message segments.

They are designed to introduce a state of relaxation so that the messages that follow are more readily accepted by the subconscious mind. This assumes that when you choose to listen to them you are prepared to become relaxed.

Schedule Time for Listening to RecordingsThis point is sometimes forgotten and by this it is meant that you need to schedule a time to listen to the supraliminal recording.

Even if you can only relax for a short time and perhaps only for 15 or 30 minutes, this is much more effective than listening to it when you are not able to relax.

You should also provide yourself with not just the time, but the environment in which to listen.

Your preferences may involve a relaxing bath, lounging in a chair, or stretched out on a couch. As long as you are comfortable and can eliminate conscious distractions, your listening experience should be satisfying.

How to Listen to a Paraliminal Audio Recording

Paraliminal recordings can be highly effective but only if they are listened to in the correct way. As with a supraliminal recording, scheduling and preparing for a period of relaxation is important. But with a paraliminal recording, you should anticipate listening for an extended period of time, and perhaps several hours.

Also, because a paraliminal recording incorporates multiple stereo tracks, messages are presented to both left and right channels. This may likely include brainwave tracks designed to induce an enhanced state of relaxation.

Listening with Stereo HeadphonesUsing stereo headphones to listen to a paraliminal recording is not only suggested, but is required in order to achieve the best results.

The embedded brainwave entrainment track presents tones of different frequency to each of the stereo channels and will have no effect unless both are audible at the same time.

As with a supraliminal recording, you should provide yourself with a comfortable environment in which to relax while listening. Ideally, this should be at the time when you retire for sleep.

You should also ensure that the stereo headphones you use fit comfortably, deliver high-quality sound and will not slip off your head while you are sleeping. Obtaining a set of quality stereo headphones is an excellent investment if they can help you achieve the goal that you have chosen.

Achieving the benefits of what a subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recording can offer is only the beginning of a listening experience that ends in your ears.

And what messages are delivered to your ears is dependent on how you choose to embrace them. Ideally, in a manner that has the greatest effect.

So listen if you can, but choose to listen carefully.

How Long Should a Subliminal Recording Be?

Subliminal Recording LengthChoosing the length of a subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recording is an issue that is most often misunderstood.

There are several topics related to this such as the length of the message script, message track and how they should be built.

It is to your advantage and your potential listeners that you understand these issues before designing and building your recordings.

Each type of recording requires an audio message track which is created using the message script that you should already have written in the best way possible.

There are other articles available that describe how to do this properly, and it is suggested that you read further about using the proper tense, permissive and directive statements, first and second person perspectives, avoiding negative words or phrases and various others.

Message Script Length

Message Script Length for Subliminal Audio RecordingsAfter the message script has been written and recorded or generated, it will usually be several minutes in length.

This short audio message segment should be mixed repeatedly when building the final message track.

You may have more than one if deciding to use both male and female voices.

Exactly how long this audio message segment is depends on how many message statements there are in the script and how they are recorded or generated.

Your message script should include between 50 and 60 statements, and always be presented in a relaxing and calm voice.

Each statement will likely be about five seconds in audio length and this means that twelve statements could be created for each minute (5 seconds x 12 statements = 60 seconds).

If there were 60 messages and each took five seconds then this would mean that that the message clip would be approximately five minutes in length (60 statements x 5 seconds = 300 seconds).

Audio Message Track Length

Length of Audio Message TrackHowever, a five-minute message segment is not long enough when creating any type of message track.

The audio message clip will have to be repeated several times in order to build an audio message track that is approximately 30 minutes in length.

The short message clip that has been created will have to be sequentially mixed so that it reaches approximately 30 minutes.

This means that if the original clip was 5 minutes in length, then 6 copies of them placed one after another would result in an audio message track that approaches 30 minutes in length.

If different voices were used in creating the message segments, then it is suggested to use them when mixing the final message track.

For instance, if the same message script was used to record or generate audio segments with a male and then a female voice, you could build the message track by sequentially mixing the male voice segment followed by the female voice segment.

This could be done repeatedly until the suggested length of 30 minutes is approximately reached.

An advanced strategy when mixing the message track is to present different message segments simultaneously in each of the left and right audio channels.

This usually requires having already created message segments with both female and male voices. Instead of sequentially combining them, they would be inserted in parallel into the left and right audio channels.

The advantage of doing so is that the listener will hear all the messages twice within the same length of time.

Repeating the Message at the Subject Level

Repeating Subliminal Messages for SubjectIn order for a subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recording to achieve the target goal of introducing change to the subconscious mind, the messages provided must be repeated.

This is done on different levels and it is important to both understand and accomplish this in the best way possible.

At the basic level, the message scripts you design will contain statements that are similar and address the goal desired.

These could relate to success, fitness, relationships or any number of topics. The important point is that at the subject level, they target the same goal but from different perspectives.

For example, if the desired goal involved weight loss, there are several aspects to consider. This could involve proper eating habits, motivation to exercise, loving oneself and likely other issues.

Even though the statements will be different, they should be designed so that they address the same target issue but from different angles. This form of repetition at the subject level is extremely important and should always be a consideration when designing your message scripts.

Repetition at the Track Level

At the next level, these recorded or generated audio message statements will be combined when building the final message track.

By doing so, another level of repetition is provided and this is accomplished by sequentially mixing the audio message segments or as suggested previously, combining them in parallel using both left and right audio channels.

The message segments you have recorded or generated should be mixed in the best manner to build the final audio message track.

This may involve using different voices segments but regardless, the statements should be repeated several times as a group.

Repetition at the Listener Level

Repeating Messages at the Listener LevelOnce the audio message track has been built, there is only one more layer that involves repetition.

This is up to the listener and how they decide to play the recordings that you have created for them.

They can easily choose to set their playback device to repeat the recording and this should be suggested to them.

Although the length of the message track is recommended to be approximately 30 minutes, this can be increased if desired.

However, this is not necessary because the messages presented are already repeated several times and the final recording can easily be set to play back continuously, perhaps even for many hours if preferred.

Also, this represents only one listening session, and it is likely that the listener will be playing the recordings frequently and possibly for weeks until the desired subconscious changes take effect.

A recording of greater length also requires additional storage space, and although this may not matter for a few recordings, it will have an impact if you are creating many recordings.

Remember that it is necessary not only to store the final recordings, but each of the tracks used in building them as well as the audio message segments.

Sound and Brainwave Tracks in Recordings

Once you have built the audio message track, the audio segments for sound or brainwave audio tracks will have to be created. Depending on the type of recording that you decide upon, it may require additional effort to either record or generate these.

Brainwave Audio Subliminal TracksThe length of any additional sound or brainwave tracks should be dependent on the length of the final audio message track.

If the final audio message track was built so that it was approximately 30 minutes in length, then the accompanying sound or brainwave tracks should be created so that they are also of the same duration.

The reason for doing this is to ensure that the final recording provides as many helpful messages as possible.

If the audio message track was 30 minutes in duration but the accompanying sound or brainwave tracks were 35 minutes in length, this can be a potential problem.

In this case, there would be five minutes of time in the recording in which no messages would be presented to the listener. Other than having the effect of perhaps relaxing the listener, no messages would be presented and obviously have no effect in helping them.

You have many options when designing and building a subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal audio recordings. One of the most important is deciding on the length of the recording.

The duration of your final recording should be aligned with the initial message audio track and any or all of the additional sound or brainwave tracks. Doing this will only serve to help your listeners and increase the value that you receive from them.

Side Effects of Creating Subliminal Recordings

Side Effects of Designing and Building Subliminal Audio RecordingsWhether creating subliminal recordings for your own use or for others, you should be aware of the side-effects this may have on you personally.

Each step in designing and creating a self-help recording of any type requires different types of action.

It is almost impossible to avoid the consequences these actions will have on you as a recording creator.

This article discusses how this can affect you in ways you may not have expected.

You likely already understand each of the steps involved in creating either a subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recording after reviewing other related articles.

The steps having the greatest effect on you will be the creation of the message tracks, the brainwave tracks and the process involved in mixing each of the various tracks together to create the final recording.

Side Effects of Creating Audio Message Tracks

Side Effects of Creating Message ScriptsFor each of the self-help subjects that you target in your recordings, you will need to properly design and write the message script.

It may take anywhere from a few hours to several days to refine it so that the statements have the greatest impact.

The message script will of course have to be either recorded or generated as an audio segment.

Several copies of this audio clip will need to be sequentially mixed in order to achieve the desired message track length.

As you build the message track, you will be exposed to each of the statements in the script repeatedly, often to the point where they may become almost annoying to listen to.

If you find this happening to you, it is best that you take a break or switch to a different aspect of the recording creation process, or even work on a different recording subject.

The suggested reason for this is that if you are unable to focus clearly on what you are doing, then you are more likely to make a mistake and the quality of your recording may suffer.

The other side-effect you will likely be aware of is that repeated listening to the messages may affect you with respect to the target subject. If the topic you selected for example was overcoming the fear of heights, then you may become less fearful of heights, but only if two conditions are true.

First, you would have to already have a fear of heights. Regardless of the self-help topic targeted, a problem cannot be resolved if it does not already exist. This is an important principle you should remember not just for yourself, but for your listeners as well.

The second condition is that even though you will be listening to the messages repeatedly over the course of perhaps several days, it may still not be long enough to impact your own subconscious. Even after progressing through the mixing process in creating the final recording, this can still hold true.

As a creator, you have the option of not listening once the recording is completed. Your listeners, on the other hand, will choose to listen to the recording frequently and perhaps for weeks or months until it achieves the desired affect.

Side Effects of Creating Brainwave Audio Tracks

If you choose to create paraliminal recordings, then it is very likely that you will incorporate a brainwave audio track to introduce an alpha, theta or delta state, or a mixture of these.

Side Effects of Creating Brainwave Sound TracksThe purpose of a brainwave track is to induce an altered state of mind so that the message track becomes more acceptable to the subconscious.

These tracks can be significantly more powerful than simply using a relaxing sound track to achieve this state.

You will usually have to create and listen to different versions of brainwave audio tracks until you are satisfied that you are obtaining the desired effect.

When doing this, you should be aware of the two possible consequences.

By listening to a brainwave track repeatedly, and even not in conjunction with the message track, it can render you so relaxed that you are unable to focus clearly on building your recording.

You may find yourself listening to the track and forgetting about what you were intending to accomplish. For this reason, it is suggested that you restrict your exposure to any brainwave track to a minimum.

Even if the track you are creating is designed to move between different states (alpha, theta, delta), you need only listen to each segment for at most a few minutes.

The other consequence of listening is only relevant if you have a neurological condition such as incidents of epilepsy or similar conditions.

If you have any form of neurological problem, it strongly advised that you consult with your doctor before attempting to expose yourself to brainwave recordings.

Doing so may trigger seizures or other undesirable effects. This is not only important to you, but also your potential recording listeners and you should provide a disclaimer in your recording descriptions so that they are aware of this. This will also help protect you from a legal perspective.

Side Effects of Mixing Message, Masking and Brainwave Audio Tracks

Side Effects of Mixing and Building Message and Brainwave Audio Tracks

Designing and building the individual message, sound and possibly brainwave audio tracks is a major step forward in creating any type of subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal audio recording.

Additional time is necessary when mixing the tracks together and adjusting volume levels until you are satisfied with the final recording version.

The side effects of listening to each component audio track become even more augmented and you should be aware of this.

It is important that you listen to the intermediate versions of your recording, but this doesn’t mean that you need to do so all in one session. Pace yourself and review your recording components or revised versions in moderation.

In conclusion, building subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal audio recordings can affect you personally. But if you are aware of the potential side-effects and manage yourself appropriately, then these will not affect you undesirably.

As a subliminal creator, it is vital that you also be a listener and understand the potential side-effects of what is being listened to.

Using Standards for Creating Subliminals

Standards for Creating Subliminal Audio RecordingsBefore you begin creating subliminals and mixing your message, sound, masking or brainwave tracks, it is important that you adopt standards with respect to their recording characteristics.

Each audio component should be digitally recorded in the same manner so that it is easier to mix your final recording and reuse them in future recordings.

Regardless of what method you use to create or mix the different audio clips needed for your recording, each has certain attributes relating to the digital audio file type, sample size, number of channels and the sampling rate.

Even if a recorded audio clip was not recorded digitally, it will have to be converted to digital and the same characteristics should be used.

Why Use Standards to Build Subliminal Recordings?

It requires effort on your part to create each audio component and mix them together so that you end up with the type of recording desired. By adopting standards you will exert less effort in creating your recordings.

Recording Standards for Building Subliminal TracksThe reason for this is it will not be necessary to convert each one into a common format before mixing them.

An advantage you gain by doing this is time and the disadvantage is that it may require additional storage space.

Given a choice between the two, and the continuing reduction in the cost of memory and storage devices, it is much more cost effective to adopt a standard format for each of your audio recording components.

There is another benefit in that when you decide to reuse an existing audio component, such as a message clip or brainwave track, you will not need to convert it before using it in a new recording.

Standards for Building Subliminal Audio Files

There are different file formats that can store digital audio clips, but the suggested one to use is the WAV format. This represents audio that is stored in an uncompressed digital format and is widely accepted.

Storing Subliminal Audio RecordingsStoring your recorded or generated audio segments in a compressed format such as MP3 is not initially recommended.

This should only be done after the final recording is built and only after careful consideration as to compression quality issues.

A WAV file is a digital representation of the audio clip, but an MP3, OGG or other compressed format is actually a data file that describes to a digital player how to play the file.

They are completely different and any compressed file will have to be converted back into WAV or another format in order for mixing.

Also, a WAV file retains the original audio characteristics of the clip, whereas a compressed version sounding virtually identical can result in a loss of audio information.

Each time you mix or combine different audio clips for your final recording, using compressed versions of them means that you are could be reducing the desired effect of your recording.

Using the WAV audio file type for all of your initial and intermediate recording components almost guarantees that the subliminal messages will be audible, and at the desired low level of volume.

If you were to compress each of your audio segments, then it is possible that you could lose some quality with respect to the subliminal messages as you progressively mixed the audio components together.

Audio Digital Sampling Rates and Sample Size

A standard music CD or Compact Disc is a digital representation of the original and attempts to reproduce it in the best way. This is done by sampling the original analog recording at extremely frequent intervals and converting those samples into numbers that a computer sound processor can understand and reproduce.

Audio Digital Sampling RatesIn order to achieve the best sounding digital recording, both the number of times per second the recording is sampled and the size of the sample are important.

For a CD recording, the sample rate is 44,100 times per second (44.1 KHz) and each sample represents a number.

That number can have approximately 64,000 different values and is stored as a 16 digit binary number.

It is suggested that you use the same sample rate and sample size when creating each of your recording audio segments. This will prevent any loss of quality as you progress to mixing your final recording.

Even though it may seem to be inefficient to store your recording segments using these attributes, it is likely to your benefit. The additional sound, masking or even brainwave audio tracks must be recorded at a high standard.

Since you will have to eventually mix all of these components together, adopting a standard format will save you time.

Using Mono or Stereo Audio Channels

It is tempting to record or generate all your message, masking, sound or brainwave tracks using either one or two sound channels, but this should depend on the nature of the individual recording component.

Subliminal Recording ChannelsUsing both left and right channels for any audio segment of your recording means that it will require double the amount of storage space.

Only certain tracks or mixtures of them should be built in stereo. For audio message clips, it is suggested that they be created only using one track.

The reason for doing this is that they may be later mixed in different manners for another recording. You may choose to build an audio message segment using both left and right channels for one of your recordings.

If recorded in mono, then you can easily later combine them in any way desired, but if they were in stereo, then you would have to separate them. Doing this would only add additional effort to what you want to accomplish.

The secondary advantage is that mono recording segments use only half as much storage as stereo audio segments.

To summarize, using a standard set of characteristics when creating your subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recordings will save you time and reduce any effort involved in converting between different audio formats.

It will also enable you to reuse any of the audio clips that you have already created and may desire to use in creating a new recording.

The standards you may wish to adopt when creating your recording components are suggested as follows:

  • Record basic and intermediate audio segments in the WAV format
  • Suggested digital sample size should be 16-bits
  • The preferred sample frequency is 44,100 Hz.
  • Basic audio message segments should be recorded in mono

Following these suggestions should only help you to create better recordings, but more importantly to save storage space and to organize your audio recording components more efficiently.

Mixing Subliminal Audio Tracks

One of the most important aspects when creating either a subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal audio recording is to ensure that the volume or amplitude of the message, sound, masking or brainwave tracks be set at the correct level. This article discusses what these levels should be and why the quality of your recording depends on it.

Although not exactly the same as loudness, amplitude is closely related to it and is measured using the decibel scale. Once you have created the supporting tracks to be used in the final recording, the amplitude or decibel level of each will have to be adjusted before mixing the tracks together. How this is done is dependent on the type of recording and is completely different for subliminal, supraliminal and paraliminal recordings.

Subliminal Recordings and Amplitude

By definition, a subliminal recording is a mixture of two audio tracks, one presenting the message statements and a second that acts as a masking track. The messages must be perceptible by the brain, but not quite audible to the conscious mind. The masking track is completely audible and also acts to make the recording sound more interesting to the ear.

When you first build the audio message track, it should be at a normal level of volume and this is necessary in order to verify that the message statements have been created properly. It is also important that whether you record your own message statements or generate them using text-to-speech software that they sound consistent.

By consistent it is meant that the amplitude or loudness of each statement be at the same level. Also, the speed and manner in which the message statements are presented should be reasonably slow and sound calm and relaxing. The best strategy when creating the message track is to pretend that you are talking to a young child.

The masking audio track should also be consistent and be relaxing to the listener. Sound clips that are erratic in volume and have many highs and lows in loudness are not recommended in any way. Using relaxing music or nature sounds is a much better choice.

Once you have built both the audio message and masking sound tracks and are satisfied with them, you will have to consider adjusting their level of volume or amplitude before mixing them together to create the final recording. The difference in amplitude between the message track and the masking track should be approximately 15 decibels, but this can vary either way by several decibels.

A common mistake made by people new to creating subliminal recordings and unfortunately even some companies that sell them is that they reduce the amplitude of the message track by too large a degree. Instead of reducing it by 15 decibels, it may be lowered it by as much as 30 to 40 decibels. In doing so, they may make the message statements physically inaudible and effectively render the final recording useless.

The software program you choose in mixing your message and masking tracks will provide you with the ability to adjust amplitude levels and it may take repeated attempts before you arrive at just the right sound levels. Even though the software is precise in how this is done, the best judge should still be your ears.

It is suggested that you listen to each track and the potential final mixed recording repeatedly until you are satisfied that the messages can be heard and that they are not overwhelmed by the masking sound track. It will likely be necessary to greatly increase the volume of the sound system of your computer in order to do this.

Supraliminal Recordings and Amplitude

With a supraliminal recording, both the message track and the accompanying sound track are designed to be completely audible. It is also important that the message track include a short initial segment designed to relax the body and optionally, the mind of the listener.

But even though both the message and accompanying sound track should be audible, it does not mean that they should be mixed at the same level of amplitude. This is an often overlooked point when building supraliminal recordings.

As with a subliminal audio recording, both the message and sound tracks should be created in the best way possible. Aside from the additional introductory relaxation segment in the message track, there is no difference between a subliminal and supraliminal recording except for the amplitude levels of the supporting audio tracks.

How they are mixed is important and it is suggested that you adjust the amplitude of each track appropriately. If you have created both the message and sound tracks properly, then they should each be consistent in how they sound. They will likely be at approximately the same level of amplitude or loudness.

But before mixing the message and sound tracks together it is advised that you adjust the amplitude of the message track. The message statements should be audible, but they should seem almost like someone was politely and calmly speaking to you as you were falling asleep.

If the message track was created by applying the guidelines suggested previously for subliminal recordings, then it should be calm, relaxing and consistent. The same principles apply to the sound track that you decide to include in the final recording.

For a supraliminal recording the message track should be reduced in amplitude by approximately 5 decibels. The reason for doing this is so that even though both the message and sound tracks are audible, the message track will sound more comforting to the listener at slightly lower amplitude.

Paraliminal Recordings and Amplitude

A paraliminal recording is considerably different than a subliminal or supraliminal recording. It normally includes three or more different audio tracks instead of the two that are commonly used in subliminal or supraliminal recordings. The additional track included is a brainwave track and it is designed to induce a relaxed mental state by using binaural tones.

The brainwave track must be created using two channels or in stereo because it is usually necessary to present different sound frequencies to each ear in order to achieve the desired effect. The desired effect is to induce a state of mind so that the listener experiences an alpha, theta or delta brain experience. By doing so, the listener becomes more receptive to the message statements presented in the audio message track.

Each of the other audio tracks must also be created in stereo, because if one must be in stereo then the others must also be built in the same manner. The tracks included in the final recording must always be built using two channels.

The three tracks required, message, sound and brainwave, should also be adjusted with respect to their amplitude before mixing the final recording. The audio message track should be slightly lower in amplitude than the sound track by approximately 5 decibels.

The brainwave track should be slightly be above audible perception and be at least 20 decibels lower in amplitude than the sound track. The reason for doing this is that the binaural tones presented in the brainwave track can become irritating to the listener and there is no benefit in doing so.

Again, the best way to judge the volume or amplitude levels of each of the recording components is to listen carefully before you decide to mix them together.

In conclusion, it is highly important that you mix each of your supporting audio tracks in the best way possible. Part of this involves adjusting the volume, loudness or amplitude of them before attempting to mix them together when creating your final recording. Doing this may require additional time, but it is usually worth the effort involved and likely that the recordings you create will be more satisfying to your listeners.

Computer Hardware for Creating Audio Subliminals

Computer Hardware Required for Creating Subliminal RecordingsBefore beginning to design and create subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal audio recordings, you should be certain that you have the minimal suggested hardware components to do so.

Most currently available laptop and desktop computers are more than likely to have the capabilities necessary.

Even so, it is still important to review the recommendations provided, and this especially holds true if you are considering purchasing a new computer to focus on designing and building self help audio recordings of any type.

Understanding this before you begin can prepare you and avoid potential problems and frustrations. If you are a power user and have a computer system that is relatively new, then you can likely skip this article and consider reviewing an equally important topic related to software requirements for creating subliminal recordings.

The basic computer hardware requirements necessary to be able to create subliminal audio recordings are grouped in the following categories: 

  • CPU and Memory
  • Disk Storage Devices
  • Audio Subsystem
  • External Speakers and Headphones
  • External Recording and Playback Devices
  • CD and DVD Recording Devices
  • Microphones

CPUs and Memory

CPU and Memory RecommendationsRegardless of the computer system you are using, it should have a powerful enough central processing unit (CPU) to be able to handle the tasks involved in building your recordings.

Faster is always better because it will take less time to perform the audio tasks necessary such as extraction, creation, editing, generation, compression and most importantly, mixing.

Multiple processing cores and hyper-threading also help in all of these tasks and a new machine will likely have such features.

This does not suggest that a less recent computer with a slower CPU will prevent you from creating subliminal or other audio recordings. It only means that some of the process intensive tasks involving manipulating audio tracks may take more time to complete.

As a consequence, performing other tasks at the same time may be more difficult to do with a slower CPU. If you have an older computer and patience, then the speed of the CPU may not make a difference to you. However, at a minimum, the speed of the CPU should be at least 2 Gigahertz.

Equally important is having a sufficient amount or random access memory (RAM) in your computer. Having more is always more beneficial and a suggested minimum is 2 or more Gigabytes. You can usually add more memory to your computer system and this will only be to your advantage.

Disk Storage Devices

Disk Drive Storage Hardware for Building Subliminal RecordingsIn addition to being able to quickly manipulate the audio segments of any recording, you will also need to store them on a local or attached disk drive.

How much disk storage space is required depends on how many recording components you build and how large they are.

As a reference, consider any standard audio music CD you may already have acquired. Each minute of uncompressed CD-DA (Compact Disc Digital Audio) at the standard 16-bit stereo sampling rate of 44.1 kHz requires approximately 10 megabytes of storage space.

An average such CD would contain roughly 64 minutes of dedicated music for a raw total of 650 megabytes. The actual amount (about 720 megabytes) is higher because of time gaps between tracks and the use of error correction to compensate for flaws and skips in the physical CD media.

When creating subliminal or other similar recording types, there are different steps involved and each requires storage space. The more disk storage space you have the better, but it is also possible to back them up to either a recordable CD or DVD.

Another option to consider is connecting an additional external USB disk drive or solid state device (SSD) to your computer; the latter is more expensive, but significantly faster when managing large audio files.

Audio Sound System

Virtually all modern day computer systems provide the ability to record and present audio in different manners. If a music CD or movie DVD can be played on your computer to your satisfaction, then you likely have what is required and perhaps more.

Although a simple concern, it is important that stereo capability be provided by the audio subsystem and the ability to be controlled by software if possible. It will likely be necessary to adjust sound system controls so that they are in harmony with the method used in dealing with the audio segments for the recordings.

External Speakers and Headphones

Headphones or External Speakers are SuggestedIf you have a desktop computer with speakers built-in to the attached monitor or imbedded in a laptop computer, you may wish to consider obtaining external speakers.

The reason for doing this is that if the speakers are too close to each other then you may find it more difficult to recognize the differences between the left and right stereo channels during the playback of your recordings.

A quality pair of stereo headphones is also strongly suggested for listening to and verifying the quality of each recording or its components. Having a choice between using separate external speakers and a stereo headset is advisable.

These components are readily available and at reasonable costs and should not be difficult to acquire.

External Recording and Playback Devices

You may need to use an external audio cassette player to import sound tracks into your computer. This may be necessary if you find suitable sound tracks that are only available on audio cassettes.

In order to do this you need an audio cassette player with stereo output and a patch cable to connect these devices to the input of the computer audio system. One end connects to the output of your portable device and the other plugged into the input of your audio sound card (e.g. line-in).

CD, DVD and other Recording Devices

CD and DVD Drives are Recommended for Storing Audio RecordingsMost recent computers have one CD/DVD drive and perhaps a combined or separate CD/DVD burner.

If you wish to create your recordings on CDs then you will need this capability. Two devices (both player and burner) are better than one since it can be easier to duplicate finished recordings on CDs.

You can use blank DVDs of various types to produce your recordings but CDs are a simple choice and most existing computer or audio equipment can play audio CDs if created in the correct format.

Producing a recording that more people are capable of listening to is always a better choice.


External Audio Microphones are Suggested for Recording Message TracksAn external microphone of good quality is necessary if you decide to record your own subliminal tracks which contain the subliminal messages.

You can choose a standalone microphone that sits on a desk, a microphone-headset combination, a clip-on microphone and various others.

The most important aspect is that it permits you to comfortably record your vocal messages in a consistent manner.

If you use a desktop microphone, then you will have to maintain a constant distance between it and your mouth.

This may be difficult and uncomfortable for some people to do, especially if it takes 5 minutes or more to create a recording. This also holds true for built-in microphones in laptop computers.

A clip-on or combination headset-microphone allows you to keep this distance constant. Whichever one you obtain, try to perform multiple tests as to its quality, the quality of your voice and the quality of the recording. Your ears should be your best judge, so listen repeatedly until you are satisfied with the result.

To conclude, it is important that your computer system be capable in helping you creating recordings. The computer that you use should have the power to assist you in doing this, but equally important is that you have the knowledge to do this.

Whatever computer system you decide to use in building subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recordings, it needs to have the power and capabilities to create your recordings in the best way, and ideally in less time.

Subliminal Recordings and Left-Handedness

Create Subliminal Recording Messages for Left-Handed PeopleAny subliminal or similar recording should help as many potential listeners as possible.

But some of us are left-handed and represent ten percent of the population.

Left-handed people usually have different brain structures and this can affect how you create your audio message tracks.

This article discusses the differences in left-handed individuals and how to design your recordings to target them with minimal effort.

Brain Hemispheres and Left-Handedness

Brain Hemisphere Structure and Left HandednessEach individual has two separate brains or hemispheres that have different functions.

In most people that are right-handed, the left side of their brain or hemisphere is better equipped in dealing with language, reasoning, planning and organization.

The right brain or hemisphere is described as being more skilled with visual images, intuition and creative abilities involving art or music.

For left-handed people, the scenario may be quite different. These individuals may have some of those skills reversed.

Their language skills may be centered in the right hemisphere of their brain instead of the left hemisphere.

Some of your potential listeners may have this characteristic and it is important to understand this before building your audio message track.

This can be significant because people that are left-handed may respond differently to the audio messages, depending on how the recording is mixed.

Recording Types and Brain Hemispheres

Creating a stereo recording is the only way to direct audio messages specifically to either the right or left brain of the listener. This is done by building the left channel differently from the right channel. It is usually necessary that the listener be using stereo headphones so that they can perceive the difference.

Building Stereo or Mono Subliminal Audio RecordingsWhen building either a subliminal or supraliminal recording you will have to decide whether to create it in mono or stereo.

It is important to remember that if the final recording is in stereo and mixed from multiple audio tracks, then each of these supporting tracks must also be in stereo.

If you build a paraliminal recording then it must have two channels because the included brainwave track requires this.

This is because the left and right tracks will present different frequencies to each ear in order to achieve the desired binaural entrainment effect.

Since the message and accompanying sound tracks must also be mixed using two audio channels, this provides an opportunity to present different messages or sounds to either the left or right brain.

But a subliminal or supraliminal recording normally does not include a brainwave track and it is not required to create the message or masking sound tracks in stereo. If built using only one audio channel, these tracks will present exactly the same messages or sounds to each ear and to the left and right brains of the listener.

There are both advantages and disadvantages to building subliminal or paraliminal recordings in stereo. These should be completely understood before attempting to do so.

Advantages of Stereo Subliminal and Supraliminal Audio Recordings

The benefits of building these types of recordings with two audio channels are as follows:

  • Ability to direct specific messages to either the left or right brain
  • Allow for different voices to be presented such as male or female
  • Permit alternating tenses and directive or permissive statements
  • Use different sounds to make the masking track sound more interesting

Targeting Voice Messages to Right EarThe most important of these is that you have the ability to design, build and mix message clips that target either the left or right brain of the listener.

This can be of benefit not only to your general listeners, but also those that are left-handed and have the functions of their brain hemispheres reversed.

Another advantage is that you can include different voices for each of the left and right channels of your message track.

In a message track with one channel, you can alternate between using one voice or another over time. But with a stereo message track you can present both at the same time.

This can be important because certain types of people respond better to messages presented in either a male or female voice.

Stereo subliminal and supraliminal recordings also permit you to use the left and right channels to present messages that have been designed with different tenses or applying directive or permissive statements.

In a mono recording using only one audio channel, the sound or masking track may seem less interesting to the ear of the potential listener. An advantage of creating the sound track in stereo is that different sounds can be presented in each channel. The benefit of this is that the audio sound track used in mixing the final recording may sound more interesting to the listener.

Disadvantages of Stereo Subliminal and Supraliminal Recordings

These advantages will have to be weighed against the disadvantages, which are as follows:

  • The final recording will be twice as large in size
  • Building and mixing each track will usually take more time
  • It is not certain that the final recording will be more effective 

Computer Disk Storage SpaceWhen recording with two channels, the size of the delivered recording and each of the audio clips created will be twice as large.

This is a tradeoff between the quality you wish to provide and the storage space necessary for the final recording and each of the components.

If you choose to build and mix a subliminal or supraliminal audio recording using two channels instead of in mono, you should understand that there is additional effort involved.

Because you will be creating individual audio clips in stereo and combining them together, you will likely need more time to accomplish this.

It is not certain that creating the message or sound tracks in stereo will be of benefit to your potential listeners.

There is no way to be sure that your target listener is left or right-handed or if they have a certain personality type. Also, it is virtually impossible to determine if they have specific issues that can be addressed by employing stereo messages.

Designing Subliminal or Supraliminal Audio Recordings for All

Subliminal Recordings for Left Handed PeopleYou may decide to build audio message or sound tracks for a subliminal or supraliminal recording in stereo based on the information presented here.

But before attempting this, you should understand that there is a tradeoff involved.

By this it is meant that it is almost impossible to provide any type of subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recording that helps every potential listener.

The best that you can do when creating your recordings is to compromise.

To conclude, people that are left-handed are not that different than others but should still be addressed in how you create your recordings.

You can build your subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recordings so that it helps as many people as possible, but it may require more knowledge and effort to do this.

Should you Record or Generate your Message Track?

Designing and writing the perfect message script for your recording is one of the first steps you must take in order to create a great subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal recording. But after this is done, you need to decide whether to record it yourself, have someone else record it for you, or have the audio messages generated by a computer program. This article discusses the advantages and disadvantages in choosing any one of these.

Deciding on how to build your audio message tracks can sometimes be difficult because you need to choose which of the available methods is best for you. What may be suitable for one person may be completely unacceptable to another. There are other considerations about each technique that you should be aware of before you decide and these are discussed in detail.

Recording Messages

Before considering recording your own message tracks, there are a few questions that you should first ask yourself. These are:

  • Do you want to Record your Own Voice?
  • Do you Like the Sound of your Voice?
  • Do you Know Someone with a Great Voice?
  • Do you have the Equipment Needed to Record Messages?

These may seem to be obvious questions to which you likely already know the answers, but they are still important. Firstly, if you have definitely decided to not record your own voice in any manner, then you may wish to skip the next few paragraphs.

Many people have never heard their own voice recorded and played back to them. In some cases, they become surprised that their voice sounded the way it did. This may not always be in an acceptable manner and some may simply consider that they do not like their voice and presume that no one else will.

You should not discount your ability in recording your own voice and should at least consider it possible that your voice sounds acceptable, even if at first you doubt this. Record a message script with your own voice and perhaps have a friend do the same. Compare each of them and decide objectively which would likely sound better to a potential listener.

Once you decide that your voice, or that of a friend is satisfactory, then you will need to determine if you have the proper equipment to record your message script properly.

You do not require a computer to do this and any type of personal recording device is likely acceptable. More important is the manner in which you create the recording. Preferably, the recording should be made in a quiet environment so that background sounds are at a minimum.

There are considerations with respect to recording your own messages such as the volume level of your spoken voice, the speed at which you speak and the emotional overtones you use.

You should record you messages as if you were speaking to a child, and in a constant, gentle spoken voice without any emotional overtones. The subconscious mind should always be addressed in this manner because it is incapable of understanding anything beyond simple concepts.

Remember also that your message script will likely only be a few dozen statements and should only take about five minutes to record. Even if takes a few attempts to complete it, it is worth the effort and you will likely become better at it the more you experiment.

The device you use to record should be capable of storing the audio clip as a WAV file and most portable voice recorders and your own personal computer are capable of doing this. Suggested settings for the file are to use a 16-bit sample rate, mono and a sampling rate of 44,100 Hertz. If this is not convenient, the file can almost always be converted to a different type using free software utilities available.

Generating Messages

In order to convert your message scripts into audio clips, you may choose to use text-to-speech software to help you. There are many choices available to you, but you should first understand why this may be useful for you.

You may decide that recording your own messages is unacceptable or that no one you know is able to do it. Regrettably, not everyone has a voice that others would like to hear. Another option to consider is to have your message clips generated by a computer program with a well-chosen voice.

Using text-to-speech (or TTS) software will require that you learn to use one or more computer programs. There are advantages in choosing this option in that you will not have to depend on yourself or others to record your messages.

The disadvantage is that you will have to understand how to use the programs to generate your audio messages in the best way possible. But this does not have to be difficult, and you may actually find this easy to do. Usually this involves simply inserting or pasting your message script and selecting how to generate the audio file.

There are free and not so free computer programs that are able to convert your message scripts into an audio format. Unfortunately, what is presently not free are the preferred voices used in doing this. The voices, also referred to as voice engines are large files (perhaps hundreds of megabytes) that contain rules and snippets of human speech that are used to convert the text into human sounding speech.

Your computer, if recent, will likely already have built-in text-to-speech capabilities and at least one voice engine installed. You should explore what these are and decide if there is a voice suitable for generating audio message clips.

The voices available may not sound acceptable and what you would prefer to use in your message tracks. You may need to purchase a premium voice from any of the available suppliers. These voices are very close to normal human speech and different genders and accents can be chosen from a wide selection.

An advantage in using TTS (Text-to-Speech) software is that it once you perfect the technique, there is no reason to record your own messages. But there is also one possible disadvantage that is only important if you decide to sell your recordings on a large scale (hundreds or even thousands of copies).

If you purchase a human sounding voice from such vendors as Cepstral, AT&T, NeoSpeech, Acapela, RealSpeak or others, there are important licensing issues to consider. Basically they will require that royalty fees be paid either upfront or periodically for each recording you sell, and this can involve thousands of dollars.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that you understand these before purchasing a voice and deciding to market your recordings. Licensing issues regarding text-to-speech voice engines are explained in greater detail in other articles.

In conclusion, you will need to decide what method is best for you in creating your message tracks. You have the option of recording them yourself, having others record it, or have it generated by computer software.

What you decide upon should be comfortable to you in every way and also the potential listeners that are waiting to hear you recordings. It is suggested that you experiment with recording your own message tracks, using others to record them, and explore the use of TTS technology before making your decision.

Before Building a Subliminal Message Track

After designing and writing a message script for your recording and before you either record or generate it, there is one more task you must perform. It is essential that you verify that it follows the guidelines for message scripts, no matter which type of recording is being created. This article reviews these different guidelines and explains why they are crucial to the success of your recording.

There are several aspects to consider when designing and writing a subliminal, supraliminal or paraliminal message script. Each is of equal importance and ignoring any one of them can mean the difference between a successful recording and one that may not work at all. These are listed and described as follows:

Negative Words and Phrases

There are many words and phrases that the subconscious mind either ignores or does not interpret as easily as the conscious mind does. Since the subconscious mind has only childlike reasoning capabilities, the use of negative words or phrases should be avoided when writing any message statement.

The most common of these are not, never, can not, did not, will not, is not, are not, no, why not and of the various contractions of these such as can’t, won’t, isn’t, didn’t and others. There are obviously many others, but generally if a word has a negative meaning then it should not be used. Only words that are descriptive in a positive way should be used.

Conditional Words and Terms

A conditional word or phrase implies that some event must occur before the desired result is obtained. The best example of this involves using the word IF. It implies that nothing can occur until some condition happens first. Unfortunately, the subconscious mind does not have the ability to project into the future and can only experience what is taking place right now.

There are other words or phrases that are conditional in nature and some of the most common are: after, before, but, even though, depending on, once, and others. These and any type of conditional message statement should not be used in your message scripts.

First and Second Person Usage

A message script can be written in the first person, the second person or perhaps both. The first person refers to statements written that begin with “I” and the second person as “You”. Either can be effective but it is dependent on the subconscious mind of the listener and how receptive it is to change.

Since it is virtually impossible to know the subconscious mind of the listener, the best strategy is to employ both first and second person message statements. They can be written in an alternating manner so that the same result is achieved. A first statement could be written as “I am successful” and a following one as “You are successful”.

Using the Proper Tense

Tense refers to the time perspective used in a message statement and can be in the past, present, present future or distant future. Neither the past nor the distant future tense should be used in writing a message statement.

The reason for this is that a statement worded as “I had” or “I will have” has no meaning to the subconscious mind of the listener. The subconscious mind is not capable of projecting either backward or forward in time and can only understand the present.

“I am motivated” is an example of a statement worded in the present tense, and in the present future, this would be phrased as “I am becoming motivated”. Depending on the personality of the listener, either the present or present future tense may have a stronger effect. Since you cannot know this beforehand, the best option is to compromise and vary the message statements using present and present future statements.

Addressing Sub-Themes

Sub-themes are issues that can lie beneath any of the target problems desired to be resolved with a subliminal or other type of self-help recording. Basic issues relating to self-image, self-love, forgiveness, allowing change and others should be addressed in the message statements.

It may require including a few message statements that suggest love, respect and forgiveness to oneself and others and this is strongly suggested. Examples of this would be “I love and respect myself”, “I forgive myself in every way” or “I allow changes in my life”.

Message Statement Length

The message statements that you design and write should use simple words and be reasonably short in length.  There is no reason to use complex words and the subconscious mind will simply ignore them. In addition, writing statements that are longer than ten words is not advisable for the same reason.

Choosing the simplest words and writing them in the most concise manner should be the preferred goal. Again, since the subconscious mind of the listener is like that of a child, simpler is better.

Number of Messages

There is no valid reason for including more than a reasonable number of message statements in the audio message segment. Too many messages will effectively render them confusing and too few will likely not affect the subconscious mind of the listener.

A reasonable number of message statements is considered to be between 50 to 60, although this can vary somewhat. Depending on how the message statements are recorded or generated, the audio result should be no longer than five minutes in duration. This is acceptable because the audio message segment will be repeated several times in the final mixed message track.

Using Permissive or Directive Statements

Either permissive, directive or both types of message statements can be used in your script. A permissive statement is worded so that it is presented in a manner that allows the subconscious mind to easily accept it. An example of this would be “I allow myself to be confident”. A directive statement is phrased in a more commanding manner and an example of this would be “I am confident now and always”.

If the listener is highly self-motivated, then it is likely that using permissive statements is a better choice. The reason for this is that their subconscious may be resistant to accepting commands because they are accustomed to self-directing their life. Directive or commanding statements are more effective for people that are less self-controlled.

Because it is unlikely that you will know the nature of the listener’s personality, both permissive and directive message statements should be used. The best strategy is to alternate between permissive and directive statements in the message script. In this way, both personality types are targeted and the result should be the same.

To summarize, each of these aspects is important and must be addressed when designing and writing your message scripts. This should always be done before you decide to record or generate the audio message segments.

To review, the points you should consider when writing message scripts are as follows:

  • Negative Words and Phrases
  • Conditional Words and Terms
  • First and Second Person Usage
  • Using the Proper Tense
  • Addressing Sub-Themes
  • Message Statement Length
  • Number of Messages
  • Using Permissive or Directive Statements

There are other related articles that explain each of these points in greater detail which may be of benefit to read. If each and all of these issues are addressed properly in the message script, then your final message track will have a greater effect on your potential listener.
