Marsh Mellow

According to the requests I receive, myNoise users love the sound of water, frogs and strangely, cicadas. Though a fairly new addition, our Japanese Garden soundscape has quickly emerged as a favorite among users. What if we were to combine these ingredients – the water, frogs, cicadas and the Japanese atmosphere – into one single generator? The result would be a rice field, of course, and on a warm summer evening.

Not only is this generator soothing and peaceful, but it is also an effective noise and distraction blocker: water acts as a sonic blanket thrown over a very wide spectrum of sound, the frogs specifically cover human speech frequencies like chatty colleagues, and the cicadas can block higher frequencies such as with tinnitus.

Thank you, Daniel and Neil for helping me collecting original audio recordings for this one!

  This makes me feel nostalgic! I've visited quite a lot of rice fields in the countryside when I was young, and I couldn't do that anymore now that I live in a big city. This generator brings back memories and makes me feel calm!

  This sounds just like a summer night at home by the pond. The only thing missing is the deep throaty bullfrog now and then, but when I close my eyes I'm there.

  I have been a patron of this site for some time, and am so glad that I am able to support this work – this generator is definitely in my top picks! I love it! Soothing, not too high in pitch, gentle frogs that don't upset my dogs (!), and slow-moving water... perfection.

  This website is one big pool of inspiration and peace. This generator specifically is particularly so.

  I can't even begin to express how thankful I am to have found this website. These sounds bring me an inner peace that I don't think I can find anywhere else. It's as if I were instantly transported to a wonderfully relaxing place. In a way, it's like being a kid again, worry-free.

  Always such a delight to discover a new generator on the site, this one is no exception - so beautiful and peaceful.

  I grew up in the Philippine countryside, and this is what reading nights sounded like when I was a kid. Takes me back to simpler times :)

  Gorgeous as usual! Love the frogs that sound like banjo strings being plucked :) Very relaxing and serene.

  Balmy night in the swamp.

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.
