How to Download and Install the BrainAvatar Muse Mood Software

  1. Pair your Muse: the brain-sensing headband with your computer
    Follow the User's Manual that came with your Muse. In short, you need to make sure that Bluetooth is turned on. Charge it using the USB cable. Then discconnect the USB cable. Press the power switch for six seconds to put the Muse in pairing mode. In the Bluetooth preferences on your computer, choose to pair the device. BrainMaster Muse Mood operates on PC and MAC, but not yet on smart devices using iOS or Android. NOTE: If you have paired your Muse with a smart device to use Calm or another app, you must turn off that device so that it's radio is not active when you want to use your PC or MAC. The Muse can pair with only one host at a time, and will hunt for available smart devices and PC's. It will always try to connect to the last host it was paired with.
