Bad Weather Reported

After our visit to the tanker's Engine Room, we are now invited into the steering cabin. It is supposed to be much quieter here, but the bad weather makes it noisier than usual: a great sound blocker, if you want, to be used when you are at work to try to drown out all the distracting noises around you.

This soundscape embeds an experimental setting that relies on ultra-low frequency sound waves combined with binaural beats. Try the Seasick preset with quality headphones, ones that go deep down into the low frequency range... then report how you feel in the comments section below. Isn't sound powerful? This shows that sound is capable of influencing our state of mind, here in a negative way. Try our binaural beats generator so that you can keep experimenting, this time positively.

Special thanks to Oli Trainor who helped me on this one too.

  Fresh air at sea!

  I simply adore this generator, and not just because I love nautical/maritime aesthetics. The rich, organic sound variety means I can play it for hours at a time without my ears becoming fatigued, the mood is dark but not menacing, and it pairs well with audiobooks to make you feel like you're reading in a clean, snug cabin while rain pours down outside.

  I listen to it with big headphones and I feel... wonderful!

  Seasick + EDM + Cafe Restaurant on the "Coctail Party" preset = "Party At Sea" (when it is stormy and you are already groggy).

  I have to do a bunch of complicated math with pressure and buoyancy for a physics class, and I put this on whenever I sit down to do homework :) It makes me feel like I'm actually working on a ship and not just doing meaningless calculations.

  Seasick slider is interesting.

  To me this sound, as soothing as it may be, is also the unassuming sound of impending adventure. Where are we going? Who knows! All that is certain is that things will be exciting by the time I awaken.

  Last summer (2019), we decided to go on a cruise ship. At night, I was at the top of a bunk bed being rocked to sleep hearing the waves around us (And at one point a party going on at the top of the ship.) Even though my bed at home doesn't rock, at least I can keep that memory :)

  I'm a first-year university student and I have trouble sleeping due to the number of times that I have to finish assignments till late hours. This setup from Tanker At Sea is my key to get me to sleep. I love the radio as I can clearly hear it but just the right amount to avoid trying to understand what it is saying. The engine rumble and the rain on the open porthole are pure ear candy.

  I don't really know why, but it always feels impossible to be lonely at sea. The sound of a big, creaking ship always sits comfortably in my heart. It's so nice.

  USN CS3 here. Love this shit. Was kicked due to medical complications. Still, miss some parts of the navy. Feels like I'm back my tiny lil boat. Only nice thing about that damned hell cruiser was the feeling of being rocked to bed by the ocean herself.

  I use this for my self-management (tasks planning, solving e-mails, writing diary etc.). I imagine myself as captain locked in command office and navigating the ship (my life) through unstable waters (the world).

  The rain on the porthole sounds just like my bedroom skylight when it's raining. So calming. I have this sound on constantly, even while watching something. It always sounds like it's raining in my room!

  I love the foghorns! They sound so musical!

  I'm a French and Classics teacher, quite terrified of high seas and, weirdly, this sound is my favourite when I'm grading papers. It makes me feel calm and powerful, surfing on the chaos of the elements.

  It helps me with my daily job as a developer. I can almost feel the engine under my feet and the waves outside our office. Awesome, thanks!

  I am an old salt, a decade in the Navy and I pushed the seasick all the way up. It made me feel at home for the first time in years. I don't miss the USN, but I really miss that rumble. I can see where if you weren't adjusted to it, you'd have problems. I almost wet a napkin and stuck it under my drink.

  I mix this with "Cargo Ship Engine Room". I nearly can smell the ocean and the Diesel oil! So marvellous! Thanks Stephane and Oliver for providing these fantastic soundscapes!

  I mix it with Cafe Restaurant and Warp Speed. Love the result. It brings me the quiet place in my noisy office that I was desperately searching to be able to concentrate.

  As an ex merchant navy woman this takes me right back, love it, even the rain on the open porthole!

  North Sea slow boats in heavy weather - love it!

  I've been having issues with vertigo for the past week and I thought the Seasick preset was supposed to help. NOPE, found that out the hard way! This isn't a complaint, though, because I love this particular generator. It's calm and relaxing, just what I need at work. I just won't be using that preset. :)

  I've never been seasick on a boat, but after about 5 min with the Seasick setting on I got really nauseous! It's interesting for sure, but maybe don't try it for too long.

  So comforting. Lots of noise in the office, and lots of work. This blocks the noise from co-workers, and also calms the anxiety so I can focus on getting work done. The sliders even make a wave shape. :)

  This is great for coding or just for researching a solution. And having a love of foghorns just makes it all the better! :)

  I love this generator! I love the rain and sea noises but this fusion plus engine rumble and water noise is just brilliant. It is my new favourite generator for sleeping!

  It started to rain, with rain hitting my window. So I thought whilst I was here, I would put this sound on. The sound has been increased for my speakers but as it works, amazing for setting me on board a ship, just sailing away. While I work either in the cabin, or down in the holds with the radio on. Just slightly off the coast in the English Channel.

  The seasick setting is fun, but I like the rain and foghorns best. I'm imagining I'm peacefully adrift on a foggy night.

  Wow. After only a few minutes, I felt myself swaying in my office chair trying to find my sea legs. Not quite sea sick, but definitely uneasy.
