A Little History...
When myNoise began in April of 2013, the concept of online noise generators was on the rise. At the time, only a few noise-generating websites existed: Simply Noise, for synthetic white noise; Rainy Mood, for the sound of rain; and Coffitivity, for coffee shop noise generation. A little later came the now famous Noisli, which this generator emulates.
Although the principle of Noisli is similar to myNoise, Noisli offers a different feel. Its user interface is extremely simple and gives instant access to many different sounds at once, allowing to create a wide variety of soundscapes from a single page. Noisli is also known for its charming visual touch and ever-changing background color.
Today, a lot of other websites have built themselves around the same concept, such as A Soft Murmur, Soundrown and Defonic to name a few. There is even a Noisli clone with horror sounds called Horrorli. Most of these websites rely on audio files available under Creative Commons (CC) licenses. These files can be used by anyone as long as their sources are credited.
This generator uses (almost) the same sound sources as those used by Noisli, in combination with the myNoise audio engine. Creative Common source attributions are listed below.
