Let your creative instincts paint your own Multimix.
- Try adding different tonalities, high and low, for example add some Birds for the high frequencies, Whales for the middle frequency spectrum. Or try designing an "Outer Space" environment, using Earth, Delta Waves and Submarine. Your imagination is the limit!
- * note: if you are on this page because your music has certain unwanted sounds while playing your Calm Radio channel, please check the layers (+) first to be sure that only your music is playing

If your device is losing connectivity due to either:

We highly recommend you enter the Calm Radio app’s Settings menu and reduce the audio quality setting to either Normal or Mobile.
Please see Apple's support page here:
Closing Background Apps
Your device may have too many applications open in the background memory which can cause your device to stall or slow down resulting in poor performance. Close as many apps as possible if your device response is slow.
Update your iOS
Your Apple device's operating system should be kept up-to-date. For many reasons like security, new features, you should always check and perform requested iOS updates.
If in doubt, delete the Calm Radio by pressing and holding for 2 seconds then delete. Reinstall your app directly from the App Store. Download our free Apple iOS apps from the Apple App Store.
