Drones

Drones are built from a single, unbroken, musical note − 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.

Overtone Singing

Overtone - harmonic or throat - singing is a technique of manipulating the mouth and throat to bring out harmonic overtones of the natural voice that resemble a whistle or growl. Various ceremonies and prayers call for throat singing in Tibetan Buddhism, often with more than one monk chanting at a time, holding to the lower pitches possible in throat singing.

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 pane.

  The sweet noises reach my ears. Echo for hours on end. Peaceful!

  I am lost on a mountain. Suddenly, the lovely, low, beautiful noise reaches my ears! I am saved!

  I just opened Didgeridrone. Uttered a wow. Enjoyed for a few minutes. Then I opened Tibetan Choir in another window so it plays over the top. The wow count went up to eleven.

  This filled me with such an overwhelming peace that it brought tears to my eyes

  Masks the noise of the window a/c

  This put on animate with Temple Bells and Wooden Chimes, also on animate, leads to an awesome and surreal experience, though I also like putting the latter two on slow animate with this set on a mixture of the 125 and 250 setting to keep the tonal noises as a constant. Either way, even by itself, it's very relaxing.

  JUST AMAZING! I am no longer in my room. What an experience! I am in awe of this website and its creator, Dr. Ir. Stéphane Pigeon. By the way, I hear "Ohm Namah". Is it true? Can anybody else hear it?

  This one takes me to an other world !

  This is amazing, helps with meditation and I can practice my own throat singing along with this wonderful generator. This is surely one of the greatest things that exists on the internet. Thank you for making all these possible!

  Awesome experience...helps me relax as well as concentrate. Helps in channeling my thoughts. Great website !!!

  The Trance setting is wonderful. It triggers my ASMR. Thank you!

  Gives me goosebumps just listening to it.

  Takes me to another world ♡

  This make me ONE with everything!!!

  I listen to the Tibetan Choir nearly every day at work while focusing on complex tasks. I find I feel revived and calm by the end of the work day - a welcomed change!

  I am a MOUNTAIN!!!

  Studying for seven AP classes has never been better. Removes every anxiety from my mind.

  I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for your website. What a treasure. After playing around with several of the 'noises', I am now mostly using a Tibetan Choir/Ocean Wave combo. It has served to enhance and deepen a lifelong meditation practice. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

  Beautiful tones - perfect for meditation, and maintaining mindfulness by playing in the background whilst reading, writing and working. What a great site - much appreciated. Thank you.

  This noise helps me relaxing when i come home from a busy day at school. I love it! And i can't wait for the IOS app to release!

  Beautiful. Absolutely wonderful for daydreaming and writing.

  This is such an amazing site. I have a low voice myself but this is just unbelievable, I feel like I'm in a native worship for the Northern Gods.

  I am studying for the Bar Exam and the Trance setting in Tibetan Meditation contains the low, bass noise that truly helps focus my attention.

  It pulls me into myself and allows me to just be. I feels absolutely wonderful.

  Awesome for meditation

  Well, I tried to make a calm song, without the 'aaahs' (because I wanted something who help me to fell asleep and the 'aaahs' was a little bit annoying). I think it's pretty relaxing and it helps me to fall asleep. (sorry for my bad english, I hope you gonna understand what I want to tell you)

  Whistling Om

  Not a big fan of drones but this one is just amazing. Thank you.

  Very relaxing without the high-pitched annoyances.

  It makes me feel like I am actually in a Tibetan temple.

  Crickets in the Temple

  This noise can seperate my mind from my body

  This is so perfect!

  I use this noise for sorcery. It masks background noise so it's easier to concentrate and helps me to enter trance easily and smoothly. It sounds like there's a whole flank of monks behind me who "got my back".

  It's very good!

  I chose this randomly but I really. Loke it

  ← Woods Whistling

  Helps me calm down and get to work!

  Deeply enchanting, life giving, cleansing, loving, healing, renewing...after 4 yrs of torturous tinnitus and scheming neighbors, brought tears of joy; this could help bring about world peace! It makes one compassionate. God sent.

  Very soothing ... promotes creative ideation ... aahhh!

  I have Social Anxiety Disorder and tinnitus. Background noise is a must, and the Tibetan throat singing is incredibly soothing. Just melts my stress.

  It's a noise I became attached to immediately. It helps relax, concentrate and block out the other, unwelcome sounds. Great background for studying.

  I have Mental Health Issues and this helps so much to soothe me.

  Balanced towards the low end. This drone fills the hearing range, but resonates mainly with the deeper, more powerful bass notes.

  Always liked the tibetan meditation generator ('ethereal' mode), but the higher tones seemed harsh and distracting...pulling the last 3 sliders down made it a lot easier to kick back and just enjoy...

  The very first time I heard Throat Singing, years ago, I was struck by how such an odd noise could produce such calming and delicate sounds. I could listen to the overtones in this noise generator all day long because it helps me when I have a migraines. Its almost as if it eases the pain away. Thank you for this!

  It made my evening completely relaxed, I've tried several more of them but this one surpasses all of them! I've also tried with and without calibration - I would recommend calibration to all of you - it made sound much more powerfull and realistic to me. Enjoy!

  The one I have created sounds like it could be on an alien planet. Enjoy!

  Perfect for morning yoga.

  This helps me concentrate when I am dealing with a lot of stress. Thank you!

  I do coding and debugging. That sound is more helpful, than... trash metal. Thanks guys!

  The pattern I have saved helps my tinitus, which affects the 'top end' of my hearing range. The drone gives a stable point to help my concentration while working, while the upper notes 'exercise' my hearing to keep the tinitus from taking over.

  The tibetan meditation music is the best thing ever. I love it so much. I feel like I am in a temple. Thank you, to everyone who is responsible for this.

  Thank you very, very much!!! My eyes are full of tears every time when I listen to Tibetan Trance... As for standalone program, I hope some day someone will do it, looking at what a masterpiece you've done on web... Thank you so much!!!

  This gave me the most overwhelming calm, put in in a very light state. It was the best feeling I've felt in a very long time. Close you eyes, focus on the noise and your breathing alone, and I assure you you'll be on your way to zen central in no time.

  Peaceful and calm sounding - easy on the ears and great for lulling you to sleep

  This sounds awesome! :D

  Helps calm me when I need to sleep. Lets me focus on the chanting instead of other things.

  Relaxing and powerfull mmmh...

  Super grateful to have been told about this site. I use it almost every morning for meditation. Seriously, thank you for creating this.

  Always helps me sleep!

  This sounds amazing.

  Ahh the low notes ^_^

  Very calming effect for me. Wish you had an app. :-)

  This is a beautiful relaxing soundscape.

  I love to study to this!!! it helps block out the noise from all the noisy people at my boarding school.

  Never thought the Tibetan meditation would actually help me fight procrastination! Very useful :)

  There's something so calming about Tibetan Monk chanting that makes everything feel so....enlightening. What I've done with it is increase the bass and keep the higher pitched sounds slightly low, thus giving the entire sound a very subtle but grand feel. It makes me feel like a giant in my own world. I love it.

  Helps me calm down and relax.

  Very soothing and relaxing, thank you!

  I've been enjoying the other generators, but this one is my new favorite. It is really helping me concentrate, and that is rare. Thanks, and keep up the fantastic work!

  Pure meditative concentration

  As a low singer, it's comforting to be able to sink into the structure of a simple bass drone while occasionally grasping onto the trill of a flute. The tonal purity is incredible, filling every recess of my brain and giving me something simple but gorgeous to listen to as I work.

  I can feel it in my chest cavity, I feel like I'm in the mountains again.

  It's very soothing and profound, it really helps me work on my sewing.

  I have what's called a superior canal dehiscence, which limits my ability to hear low frequencies. The calibrator gave me a curve that looks remarkably like the one I got from my audiologist. It really works! The sound really came alive for me after calibration!

  I absolutely love to meditate with this in the background! I'm so glad that I have discovered this site.

  These are excellent for providing a nice, unobtrusive buffer between the noises of the world and my concentration.

  The perfect way to having a background soothing sound when you work. It completely blocks other sound noise. Thank you very much.

  Its amazing how relaxing this can be. I love it!

  The low notes vibrate my inner brain. They are clear and deeper than anything I've ever heard. I'm able to actually direct them to the part of my brain where I want them to stimulate. I believe AProjection is possible with this.

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.
