Drones are built from a single, unbroken, musical note āˆ’ sometimes a simple chord. Their harmonic content is the only characteristic evolving with time. Therefore, drones constantly balance listeners between two hearing states: the unchanging and steady sound, and the ever-evolving tone.

The ever-evolving texture gives your mind something to focus on, while the constant pitch makes it virtually impossible to concentrate on anything but the sound you hear. Therefore, drones offer a very pronounced hypnotic character and are ideal for washing you daily worries away.

If you are looking for inspiring tonal noises instead, check out our soundscape section.

Calibrated Output

This sound generator is calibrated and outputs a pink-like spectrum when the sliders are horizontally aligned. Calibration is unique to this website, and can be used to compensate for your own hearing, audio equipment, and listening environment deficiencies: follow our Calibration Procedure once, then access Your Hearing Curve from the right column.

  Listening to this generator combined with the Indian Tuning setting from Shortwaves and the Home Alone setting from Wind Noise creates an atmosphere that is strangely both haunting and peaceful. I feel focused and relaxed...

  The real noise of the world sounds quite dull after hearing this.

  I kept two of such ambient sounds (Spring Water and Indian Drone) playing as I worked. The result was an instant sense of calm. Nothing ever works like that on me!

  I have severe anxiety and even classical music can be a huge distraction for me. Listening to the Indian Drone keeps me from experiencing intrusive thoughts while I'm trying to study or fall asleep. This is a total life-saver. Thank you so much!

  Never enjoyed this one till I used my hearing curve. Now it's amazing. Thank you for such a great product. Cheers.

  Wow - This noise. I have discovered a weird phenomenon after listening to this generator on my headphones. Once I take my headphones off after about a half hour listening to this generator, I get a very strange audial sensation, as if there is a flanger on my sense of sound. It's like a very fast-paced mental wiggle; pitches are modulated ever so slightly. Calm and then Trippy!!

  This is very calming. I close my eyes and melt away from everything.

  Here's a heavy, guilty drone -- a slight sense of dread in what might have been something calming.

  This literally gave me shivers, I didn't think I liked this sound until I put my calibration on it and just, shivers. So relaxing.

  My mother was sleeping over and had insomnia all night, but even with my kids running around the house in the morning, she was able to sleep through it all and replenish herself after I put this drone on for her.

  I listen to this while ocean waves is also playing. It is great for getting to sleep!

  This is truly a wonderful experience.

  This site is so awesome! I use this constantly at work to help drown out distractions. I find it amazing that there are people who are dedicated to doing this. Thank you for helping me be productive! My favorite combination is the Indian Drone, Singing Bowl, Northern Lights, and Ultimate Rain! I open them all on separate tabs and set them on "Animate". It sounds amazing!

  This is one of my favorite noises! The deep drones help me focus, plus they're really relaxing.

  I love how there are people out there who would go through the trouble to bring stuff so calming to people they'll never meet... I hope you know how grateful we all are. :)

  Searching harmony

  This one is just really relaxing to me personally.

  Enables me to let go of conscious activity, relax and feel refreshed.

  Just makes me feel chill.

  These people master noisemaking to the point that I'm extremely calm and soothed while awake in the morning! Resonating within me.

  Just so... aah, yes.

  Nice and deep.

  This is the sound of outer space. I don't know why, but that's just the emotion it gives me.



  I use this for mindfulness meditation and is helpful rather than instrusive

  My body feels strange and I have a tingling sensation in my hands as I listen to this. My eyes have a hard time focusing as well. Such a cool and strange experience.

  THANK YOU SO MUCH, Dr. Pigeon! This is just _one_ of the settings I like to listen to for HOURS while doing my boring yet challenging computer work, and as with all settings I use, this is animated. I have Tinnitus in high frequencies, and accordingly Iā€™m hard of hearing in these frequencies, these drones are a great relief for me. THANK YOU, Tom in Germany

  Enhances my well-being and peace of mind.

  Very mindclearing :)

Each slider controls a particular frequency band, from the lowest to the highest frequency. Adjust sliders to taste.

To mask undesirable noises, focus on bands sharing the same tone as the noise you want to cover. Doing so achieves a higher efficiency, and quieter masking noise levels.
