Homemade Subliminal CDs 305

An anonymous reader writes "Hello Slashdotters, I am totally stumped on how to do this. I would like to create custom subliminal CDs for my own use. I don't trust the CDs for sale in the stores, after all, who regulates that industry and ensures there actually is a message on them, and if so, what is the message? I would like to create positive motivational CDs, or even recite text from study guides/trivia, you name it, and lay it underneath tracks from a custom CD of my favorite bands. What is the best software to use to create such a beast on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems? And conversely, has anyone used any of the music software on these platforms to actually analyze the contents of commercial subliminal CDs? Any advice would be of use...thanks!"

    So far none of them have been remotely amusing and neither is this one. Surely someone can come up with something better than this, you have a
    whole year to prepare after all!

    I don't trust the tin foil/aluminum foil had ideas anyway. Don't you know that this is just misinformation fed to you by "Them?" If you really want to block the mind control device, turn off the TV.

    Hey, if nothing else the act of repeating what you want to do over and over in the microphone might help you learn what you're trying to learn, or convince yourself of... whatever it was that you were trying to convince yourself of...

    ..."I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and gosh darn it, people like me."

    Bunk. Most people don't even see the 1/24th second flash unless they've practiced at it.

    I don't know about that... In the movie "Fight Club" I found out what those "cigarette burns" (to use fight club's words) mean... I had noticed them long before.

    And, although it would be flattering to think of myself as "quick", my reflexes are pretty normal... I remember mentioning them to several of my friends and they saw them too.

    Although I will admit that I play a lot of FPS's, so maybe I have "trained" myself to see fast images like these.

    A side note: I saw Fight Club twice in the theater, and the flashes of Tyler seemed to be much faster than when watching the DVD on a TV.

    I wouldn't expect this, since I thought movies are 24FPS and TVs are like just under 30 FPS?

    Maybe the phosphor glows, causing the image to appear longer? Or they doctored the DVD transfer a bit to make sure they were noticeable?

    Or, I just thought of this one:

    I've heard that movies are 24 FPS, but that each frame gets shown twice, so there are 48 flashes per second of the light onto the screen. Perhaps the original movie only showed the image for 1/48th instead of 1/24th of a second.

    I've never handled a movie reel, so I don't know if it advances a frame, flashes twice, and advances another frame, or whether it advances a frame, flashes once, then advances again, and movies are just doubled up.

    (Actually, it seems silly to imagine that the movies are doubled up, in that case you would just run at 48FPS for a better overall quality)
