Dark Night Route

myNoise fans enjoy running different generators at the same time in different windows. The result is often rewarding to the ear. This is to be expected: all tonal generators are programmed in the same key – C#. But sharing the same root key is not sufficient to achieve a perfect blending of sound; generators need to share the same scale, too.

A musical scale is a set of notes build on top of a root note. The scale defines the mood of a soundtrack and ultimately the emotions your audience will feel while listening to a track. A major scale feels happy; a minor scale, sad; a pentatonic scale ... oriental, and so on. Each scale comes in its own flavor.

Like ice cream, not all flavors can be mixed together with great results. This explains why – despite sharing the same root note – not every combination of tonal sounds on myNoise works. It is best to avoid mixing happy major and sad minor scales, which will result in some friction between incompatible notes, causing dissonances. When two generators share the same root note (they all do on myNoise) and scale, then we have a perfect match!

This composite generator is a mixture of Route 50 and Night Blue which do indeed share the same scale. Oh, and then we have a tad of Dark Noise, mixed in as well...

Composite Generators

This sound generator is a composite. You can recognize composite generators by their icon on the main index page. These generators are build from other generators' sources. They showcase how one can create new soundscapes by combining audio elements found in others.

Check out the community page, the place where patrons of myNoise share their own composites. You can create your own too, refer to the side column to learn how.

  This is great, really helps me focus. I'm doing a glowup using Pixlr, this really helps!

  Click the blue dot to the left of this comment and use that sound for sleep. Stephane, this gen is amazing.

  Mick Karn. Which way does your beard point tonite? I hear him. Japan indeed. Mr. Fripp ripping all over this as well. Barbieri and his magic as well. Adrian Belew esque as well.

  Honestly, this preset doesn't have too much of the drum-like beat, but it does set a sort of spooky ambience without being disrupting to work. Just a quiet background noise that helps me pay attention to what I'm reading.

  As someone who indeed commutes by night (as I work graveyard), this track is perfect for me. Went ahead and ordered a 30-minute file of it so I can use it for driving.

  Very good for travelling in metros and coaches! Miss those days when i come from work in the metro at night.. :) Staring at the fast moving lights and the pebble-shaped raindrops on the window on cold nights...

  Smooth, creates a feeling that makes me more productive.

  Just found this, first comment! Wonderful gen! Wish I could donate. ~PG [Editor's note: Peter Gabriel, is it you? :D ]

Creating your Composite Generator

Use a laptop or desktop computer, as you will be asked to use keyboard shortcuts.

To create your custom composite generator, browse the site for slider contents: open any generator on myNoise, and select the sliders you want to use in your custom set by 'zeroing' all others, then hit [c] to collect all active sliders into a hidden stack. Move to a next generator and repeat the process until you have accumulated 10 sliders. Now hit [shift+c] to render your custom composite generator. At any point, press [x+c] to clear the hidden stack.
