Each slider controls a particular audio stream; adjust sliders to taste and mood. The animation button turns the soundscape into an slowly evolving texture. Use this feature if you intend to listen to the generator over a long period of time.

Portuguese Coast

The sounds you hear in this soundscape were recorded in March 2022, during a field recording trip in Portugal at Cabo da Roca, the westernmost point of mainland Europe, and its surroundings, the Sintra-Caiscais Natural Park.

The trip was initiated by Rita, a fan of myNoise who lives there. Her favorite noise on myNoise was the Irish Coast, but I wondered if her choice would change if I ever recorded a Portuguese variant of that coastal soundscape. So, here you are, Rita: a contender for your favorite generator on myNoise, featuring the exact sounds of your happy place.

When I sampled the Irish Coast in 2014, I ventured further inland to record additional sound sources, such as the rain, wind, and inner lochs. I did the same in Portugal: I recorded coastal noises first, then moved further away until the ocean noise gradually disappeared. By moving the sliders from left to right, you will follow my route and the sounds I met on my journey between land and sea.

Make sure to browse the presets list, to discover the many variations of this sound generator and find the sounds you like the best. If you are creating your own mix, use adjacent sliders to produce combinations of sounds that are faithful to reality. Or, let your imagination run wild, and use the different tracks to create your own unique soundscape.

  Magnificent! It's like one long never-ending wave without a recession! :D

  Wow, I experience so much in this soundscape! It's really wonderful how one place provide so much sounds and sceneries... Wonderful. Thank you.

  Instant favorite :) I often "need" a strong ocean sound, waves crushing on rocks or sand, but in a place I could really safely dip into the water. This is it. I would say finally. No peeble, there. No images of the roaring 40th... Another great great experience!

  Hidden behind the beach's sabal palmettos you find a an ecosystem teaming with wildlife. This is that place :)
