This program allows users to create their own sound themes and customize preset themes according to their preferences and mood. A particular theme can be played during work hours; another can be played to ease the user into a good night’s sleep. This application as a built-in audio player that may be used simultaneously with other media players. This means that users can also listen to their own music while Halotea’s ambient sounds are playing.
