Enchanted? Maybe.

The moon — your only friend in these dim and mystical woods — disappears behind the treetops and abandons you to the dark. The ground beneath your feet crunches with your every hesitant step, and then you nearly stumble when the earth — suddenly spongy — swallows your boot. Nocturnal creatures wake all around you, greeting you in echoes of lonely howls and hums. A winged insect flutters past your ear. Something doesn't feel right. It's like the whole forest knows you're here. No... it's like the forest knew you were coming, and won't let you leave...

  Feels like being home. Not the where I currently live, but more like an universal feeling of home.

  This is a great sound generator for creepy settings. Combine this with "Deserted" and you'll have yourself an amazing atmosphere of scary. I always love channels that tell scary stories like Mr Nightmare, and these are some of the best sound effects for those channels and for anything eerie in general.

  I've been listening to this for hours and still love it! It's very nice and relaxing, especially when paired with a rain generator.

  This is great for planning a D&D session, but I also find it oddly soothing to listen to whenever.

  It gives me anxiety, but the good kind of anxiety.

  Niiice. On animate and with headphones, it's sometimes hard to tell which noises are from outside my window and which ones are from the generator. I'm writing a spooky story and this has really helped me find my muse. Now I just need a name for the villain ...

  This track is amazing!!! I discovered I was wolfkin about three days ago and this "Dark Forest" track helps to combat the dysphoria I feel... Having the sounds set to my preferences helps a lot too. It's like lying down for the night in the forest, and hearing my pack hunt nearby... Love it!

  You have no idea how much ambiance can improve a table top session. Even subtle stuff like this will get you noticeably better player engagement.

  This generator is so wonderful! I've been looking for a long time for one that sounds like this or similar, and I'm so glad I've finally found a good one. It transports me to a dark forest, just as the name suggests.

  Amazing ♥

  This generator combined with the Purity preset of Twilight made me feel like I was at the abandoned shrine in the wilderness that the main character of my book visited.

  Dark Forest, paired with Dragon Sleep (Anamnesis) and Battlefield makes me think of a scout or a spy or an uninvited observer slinking around a battlefield.

  This is such a relaxing track to listen to while I write! It inspires me with so many ideas for nighttime journeys and quiet midnight mischief. It almost makes me want to go out and roam in the night myself...

  I'm really liking this; first thing that comes to mind is Luke Skywalker making his way through the swamp in Dagobah.

  It's so eerie. And the howls are amazing; it puts you in the mood.

  Rare creatures is my favorite. With a little bit of thunder added... perfect.

  It took about five seconds for this to become my new favorite generator on the whole site.

  Love this! The Eerie Bird noise is amazing. I re-tuned it all to be much more creepy and haunted and plan on mixing some other players with this one to create a "fighting ghosts" experience. Thanks for putting it together!

  It sounds like a home I once knew.

  I just love this one, without nocturnal tone: This way, it's a quiet, dark, ancient wood - where humans are only guests. If you behave well, you may stay and receive your gift: tranqulility. If you don't, well, the floor is soft, and, y'know, humans don't swim too well, soo, err, ... ;)

  This sound generator is amazing on its own. Pair it with the Poltergeist generator and you get a nice horror soundtrack.

  I find myself imagining a lightly foggy alien forest with strange swirly plants, blue fireflies and cat-sized insectoids.

  I've grown up surrounded by forests, and this really puts me at ease. It feels like I'm back at home, safe in the comfort of the woods.

  Just stop in the dark mist and listen for a bit — the forest is full of noises.

  I love all of the RPG noises! I mostly use them for writing, but man if I ever get my Pathfinders group to meet regularly...

Usage

Each slider controls a particular audio stream. Adjust sliders to taste and mood.

Unlike the other sound generators, this soundscape is not calibrated. This means that sliders are not associated to exact frequencies and that the generator's output will not turn into a pink-like spectrum when sliders are horizontally aligned.

The Animate! 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.
