The wooosh without the petaflops

Data centers are not only the brains of modern tech companies, they are the cathedrals of all information technology. All the computer, server and networking components needed by our modern world are packed into large, isolated, climate controlled, secured rooms. In there, the sound of the equipment is intense: the fans whooshing, the power supply units humming, the hard drives spinning... Listen. Close your eyes. You are surrounded by the electronic brains of the modern world; each processing requests, crunching data, and assembling responses at almost light speed! If the Internet was a sound, this would be it.

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.

  I grew up with my dad working on computers in the 70s. Once in a while, he'd have to go in after hours and would take me along... fans, big boxes, blinking lights, and playing Star Trek, the text game, on green terminals. This is the closest sound I could get based on my audio memory.

  Amazing! I love these industrial sounds so much!

  This is cool because it gets rid of ringing in my ears. Love it!

  This is perfect for drowning out my computer fan when it is being obnoxiously loud and buzzy for no reason, hahaha.

  Today I discovered this one as the perfect "colleague silencer" while programming in the office. Helps me staying in the tunnel B-)

  Preset 'The Enterprise' is a beast!

  I have ADHD, and this particular curve makes me feel peaceful and focused which is great, but there's a certain "energy" to the sound that somehow keeps me in that mindset. In 15 years of taking stimulant medications, I have never felt this relaxed while also feeling this focused. I'm so overjoyed that I could cry, thank you so much!

  I love the bubble of silence when I mute after listening for a while, it feels unreal...

  Perfect while debugging the TIS-100

  I use this to drown out noise when I am in our data center.

  This is exactly what the main RADIO room sounds like on a Navy ship! All I need now is the click of the door's lock and it will be perfect.

  Very nice ambiance for work, gaming, or any task requiring directed attention.

  I layered this with Evil Charm (the monster sliders high) and Spaceship. Now it sounds like I'm being stalked by a deadly alien on board an abandoned spaceship. Creepy!

  This is fantastic. It makes my brain feel like it's receiving a massage while also blocking out all of the noise I experience at work.

  ← My spaceship

  This sound reminds me so much of the blast freezers from where my mom works. The memories are soothing within themselves. <3

  This is so realistic that when I forgot about it, I became convinced it was coming from my computer until I remembered this again. If you combine this with office ambiance, I become more convinced that I am working in an office. :)

  Dude, mix this with the circuit bending, it sounds like inside a database.

  This sounds like when you sit next to a projector on a cold day and put your cold hands in front of the vent to warm them up. I spent a whole afternoon listening to this generator!

  I used to come out feeling shattered after a day working in a data centre. The noise permeates into the senses. It feels like stepping into a digital lair.

  Sounds like my PC before I fixed it. I miss the sound of its fans all day.

  This is my favorite noise generator on the site, and I love making new settings each time I come back. It helps me focus and calms me down after a stressful/bad day. Thank you, Stéphane!

  Makes me imagine I'm on the ISS! I don't know if "Outer Space" was meant to sound like the ambient noise onboard the ISS, but sure does it sound like that! Awesome...

  The only thing that's missing is audible alerts, beep beep beep .... beep beep beep, or when something's really trying to alert you beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep

  ← Space Ship - How I imagine it would sound on Battlestar Gallatica. I love to jump into bed with this on, and imagine steel walls, pipes, and big engines pushing me through space.

  I like to contemplate on the universe, life and everything in my evil lair with this preset. It soothes me.

  I use this in the laboratory to balance out the sounds from all the turbomolecular pumps and mechanical pumps. Quite the symphonic delight!

  I have the television on max and I can't hear it. This is amazing.

  You know you're a technology geek when it's hard to get to sleep without the soothing whir of several computer fans, because your bedroom sounds more like a data center. Fortunately, this sound works just as well.

  I am a software developer. I use this sound to block out noise in the office while not forgetting to do my work. I also use this when I work from home to make me feel like I am in the office.

  ← Overheat (fan overdrive)

  It can be hard to stay focused when I'm working from home, but this generator (with or without the Babble generator on top) gets me in the office mindset.

  This is one of the best things for blocking out noise! Plus it takes me back to my days working graveyard shift changing computer tapes.

  ← Data dreams of the Enterprise. As with Cabin Noise, Electric Hum and Flying Fortress - you simply boost me into a state of calm, deep and safe nothingness. Timelessly embraced by the presence.

  I actually came back to the site after listening to a data center drone on youtube, and tried to find more. Then boom, I found out that you just released one. Wow. This truly is an amazing site.

  I was just saying the other day, when I walked by my office's LAN Room, how I loved the soothing sound of it. Now I know I am not alone in my geeking out with the release of this generator. This site is really great and obviously a labor of love.

  Ahh the sound that has lulled me to sleep in classes countless times. Now I can actually use it when it would be more appropriate, when I actually need sleep. Happy with this recent addition.

  I can almost feel the frigid blast of the room fans. Sends shivers down my spine just from listening to it. This is my new favourite.

  Now I can listen to my work wherever I go... There's no escape now!

  My new favourite!

  This reminds me of spending long stretches working in my college's library on whatever project I've procrastinated on this time. This particular noise comes from a slightly disused section with just the right level of warmth. Very soothing.
