the sounds are basically static background noise you'd hear between channels. the program can "hear" the subtle differences in tone and adds them, if found, as potential candidates.

As far as your perceptions, nothing here mentions being able to find a signal from listening. You could watch the screensaver and watch the cascade but again the app does all the work you just sit back and dont have to do anything
