Usage

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.

Meditational Sound Source

The sounds of water are used in meditation to create a calm atmosphere, to mask distracting noises, and to soothe our mind. This time, we hiked across Madeira - a Portuguese island in the middle of the Atlantic - to record the sound of levadas. Levadas are man-made channels that carry water from the central mountains to the peripheral agricultural fields. These channels are often positioned to take water from a mountain waterfall basin - a source of intense noise - and then quietly travel through breathtaking landscapes. Pictures taken during the sampling session are available here.

  I love this noise. It reminds me of taking a hike through marshy area.

  This is so wonderful, thank you so much. This helps me study so much and drowns out all the noise going on in the other parts of the building. I love the pictures that go along with it as well. They really let us see the journey you took to create this beautiful sound generator for us.

  Love to read to this. It's a nice background noise that helps clear my mind.

  I love to listen to this with some LoFi music on the background, gives me big relaxing sumer vibes.

  I am writing my PhD thesis at the moment and these nature sounds really help my brain to focus on my task. Also, the pomodoro timer is fantastic! Love how the sounds gently fade out, letting me know another 25min block of writing is completed.

  The gently gurgling streams and the chirping birdies heal my soul. :)

  I love the basic settings of this soundsape. Wouldn't change a thing here. Simply wonderful how you capture nature sounds (and others). I'm so thankful for your work which lets me connect to my roots. I appreciate very much that the soundscape keeps playing even if I open another browser tab on my mobile phone. Because of that thought-thru feature, nothing interrupts the relaxation. <3

  After a long day of computer work, this brings me back to my natural self. Thank you for your great work! I haven't forgot that website, which I discovered three years ago. The sound spectrum expanded even more. I love to wach the photos that you captured during the recording sessions. I really appreciate the thoughtful settings and optimum sound quality. And the possibilty to mix own soundscapes.

  Really awesome, helped me finish more than 15 lessons (class work).

  The sounds are soo soothing and beautiful. My exam are going on currently and playing levadas on my laptop, is literally making me feel like studying. Thank you so much for creating this for us :)

  In our old house, we used to have a stream at the bottom of our garden, and I used to read books on a swing seat just by it and listen the frogs, birds and gurgling water. We have moved now, and I missed listening to the trickling water until I found this. Soo realistic and refreshing.

  I like the new addition with meditative gong, this is my new work setup.

  This is the best website. Thank god security did not block it.

  Very relaxing. This helps me focus so I can do schoolwork.

  I've been trying to focus on my math homework. It hasn't seemed to work because all of the distraction, but these sounds relax my brain and my body. Thank you for this work.

  Couldn't concentrate before and now I can - big up for Mr. Pigeon, you're a good man.

  I'm a senior in high school with ADHD and your site has helped me focus and actually get my work done. I am passing high school because of your work. Thank you so much.

  Wow, just, wow.

  When I listen to this I think: wow I'm next to a waterfall and the birds are singing, and the frogs, oh, the frogs, I'm in paradise. I've never been so focused in my life! Math, so easy. Science, so short! I absolutely love it!

  It's been a stressful week, but the Levadas in my earbuds made me relax right away. Thank you.

  This is my favorite, as it combines all of my favorite sounds into one generator.

  These are wonderful water noises. They give me ASMR tingles that make me feel soft and lovely inside.

  I absolutely love myNoise! It has sounds for very different mood and something for all types of study or work. Donate to myNoise! We're so lucky it's available free!

  Just now I was thinking of booking a hiking trip to the Azores when I found your new soundscape, this must be fate! The calming water combined with the meditational settings of the Pilgrim helps me to reduce stress and anxious thoughts. Thank you for all your hard work!

  I love this for meditation use.

  This is a fantasrtic bubbling brook sound where I can cancel out all the deep rumbles I don't like- just a nice, calm brook like noise. I turn off everything but the levada noise.

  I always use myNoise to focus on my studies. I got so happy when I clicked the photos link and this was the first thing I saw, because this is where I am from (Madeira). New favourite noise!

  Not kidding, the photos from the sampling session just made me book a trip to Madeira. Looking forward to experiencing the levadas with my own ears.

  This is so peaceful. I like the quietly burbling water and just a little birdsong.

  This is the sound of the Levada in Kidz Tunz Land, that serves as a irrigation canal, biosphere, ecosystem for wildlife, and a fishing spot all rolled into one; there are tons of different unique plants that only grow here, as well as areas where the water isn't moving as swiftly that is used as a combination of a swimming hole, and natural thermal springs.

  I can almost smell it... Once again my mind thanks you.

  Just the perfeeeeect amount of my dreamy water sounds -- it's not too noisy like waterfall sound yet the dripping makes it like I'm sitting near the creek and the birds really blend so well. It's like my own personal peaceful creek. Wonderful!

  I picture myself writing while sitting on a large, flat rock above the falls - coupled with the very faint sound of passing cars, and it's perfect!

  I'm very fussy about water sounds - I really can't get into churning and dripping - but this is just wonderful. The birds and wind make me feel as if I'm in a green, growing place with cool water flowing beside me, and my tinnitus just disappears. I love this one. Thank you!

  Very calming... nice companion to Healing Water.

  This is the best water-sound generator yet!

  What a divine sound. I love flowing water and this is no exception. Instant favourite!
