Home By The Lake

Enjoy a compilation of calm lake-side sounds, recorded on cloudy, rainy and windy days.

This sound generator is a composite generator, made from sounds sources that already exist on the website. Read the side column below to learn how to create your own composite generator.


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!

  I came across this setting when I clicked "randomize sliders" and am enamored by this. There isn't too much sloshing of water. I hear more of the wind, some birds in the background, and some small waves crashing in. I have never been to the east coast of the US, but I imagine that this is what it would sound like in the northeast, like Maine maybe,

  Perfectly balanced, as all sliders should be.

  Let it rain.

  WOW, this is amazing... helps me to concentrate when completing technical tasks at school. Reminds me of the Lake District!

  Very relaxing, I like the water droplet sounds with the white noise ambiance in the background.

  What a wonderful ambient mix - reminds me of a summer evening I spent along Lake Michigan watching the sunset!

  It’s so helpful for reading in class when everyone is talking.

  This is just what I wanted! Here is to hoping that these gentle waves will bring some sweet dreams along with them.
