The app offers volume controls for each sound and the option to save your favorite combinations. Another great feature is the timer and sleep option.  Say you want to do a 15 minute music assisted relaxation with a group and you want to include nature sounds like rain, wind chimes and tribal drums all while accompanying yourself on keyboard and reading a script. No problem  Select the rain, wind chimes and tribal drums sounds and then set the timer for 15 minutes and it will give you a count down clock and fade the sound in the last 30 seconds! Who says music therapist’s cant multi-task!? =) Relax Melodies has a FREE version of this app too if you don’t want shell out the 4 bucks out the gate.  The free app gives you a few sounds to sample and combine, however, it will subject you to advertising.  Check out the sample video if you still need convincing.
