I began Emperor this week, and since my ears were slightly hurting (running ultrasonic on my phone and laptop constantly), I downloaded masked and began running it. I knew masked would let me know how loud or soft a subliminal was, generally.
What was immediately obvious is that I had been running ultrasonic at a high volume. I was running ultrasonic between 3 and 4 on a volume going to 10. But with masked, even 1 was too loud. I ran masked halfway between 0 and 1 comfortably.
Is it safe to say that the decibel level is equal in both ultrasonic and masked? I used ultrasonic at a much lower level last night for Sanguine and Emperor, and I felt their affects this morning.
In fact, I’m on my laptop presently running ultrasonic, and while writing this, I turned my volume down, as it was closer to 2. I had a very slight pain in my ears.
