    "A bare bones Rife unit that needs further enhancements."

    June 3, 2012  |   By Terry Gay

    Pros

    Its the lowest cost PC Rife generator out there and does offer quite a few options for generating the tones, sine waves (Dr. Rife used sine waves and NOT square waves as the author of this software maintains - See John Bedini and his Rife generator rebuild), square waves, and triangle waves. It also offers steady tones, pulsed tones, and several frequency sweeps including a logarithmic sweep that is very fancy.

    Cons

    It uses a ridiculous and finicky script editor for entering for entering and saving frequency sets. The Rife Group puts out the Rife Master List that lists frequencies discovered by Rife, Turf, Barr, and others. It's available as a PDF. The author T. Essen needs a different system for entering and calling up this valuable list with his software.

    The software only has maximum time limit of 2 minutes for frequency that may require five to twenty minutes for some conditions. You can click on the loop function that will play the tone continuously until you hit stop, but you have to use a timer. This is such an easy fix for the software that has been out for six years now. The inability to easily enter frequency sets and associate times for each frequency within the set is a serious drawback for this software.

    I did mention it is cheap, only $27 USD. This makes it the lowest cost of the all the PC generators offered for download. I would pay more for these important enhancements.

    Summary

    What T. Essen's Rife Generator does right it does very well. The tone shaping functions are varied and easy to implement. Saving frequency sets and associating individual times with each is laughably and maddeningly difficult. Setting the timing sets beyond 2 minutes requires you to check the time yourself and this is mostly unacceptable as the software can be easily modified to address this. If you are a frugal cheapskate like me, the very low cost will attract you, but realize you can get the added functionality from other developers if you pay four times the cost. Your decision.
