Audio Time-Lapse

This soundscape was recorded in Beaujolais, France, during my family holidays in 2019. We were staying in an isolated bed-and-breakfast place, lost in the vineyards. It was late afternoon when I heard the thunder coming, under an overcast sky. I searched for a cache among the vine stocks where my recording equipment would stay dry, and I left it running all night. The sounds evolved from a distant thunder to something closer, alternating with rain and chirping insects when the rain stopped.

To faithfully recreate the ambience, sliders have been configured as an audio time-lapse, each of them being associated with a different hour of the night. To hear the exact sound progression that night, reveal sliders individually from left to right. You can mix multiple sliders to create a thunderstorm with the sonic density of your choice. Headphones are highly recommended, to enjoy the superb stereo imaging.

  This is beautiful. I love it.

  I love playing jazz music when it's rainy outside. Now that there is no rain, this setting makes it perfect to simulate that feeling in my mind.

  Adding this to Distant Prayers of Gregorian Chants - is the ultimate concentration sounds for me.

  My favourite one with the thunder sound slightly louder.

  This makes me so calm and relaxed!

  This has been one of the best sites ever for me. I need this to relax in a world of inconsiderate neighbours who are horrible pet owners and allow their animals to disturb the peace of others with constant barking. Dealing with the death of my mom and Covid-19 and many other factors like not being able to get rest all piled up on me. You saved my life literally. Thank you!

  I've always liked the sound of rain and it's really good for relaxing, especially with the occasional thunder to make you really want to stay comfy inside. This is one myNoise that I can listen to for weeks without ever getting tired of it.

  For hot dry days when the grass is turning yellow and you stay in front of the fan all day.

  I am often not able to fall asleep, and often wake during the night, feeling unsettled. I've always found thunderstorms beautiful and comforting, so I decided to try letting yours play over my speakers (for proper sound) one night, and it helped me sleep properly. I use it every night now.

  I've been listening to this as I write my novel for Camp NaNoWriMo 2020, and so far I've found it to be wonderfully helpful. It's really help me feel like I'm right there with my characters and get into their head space. I play this while I write with my themed playlist for this novel quietly in the background and it's just the perfect atmosphere for me to right this book in!

  This goes wonderful with some lo-fi, especially when you have a lot on your mind.

  When you love the rain but you live in the middle east country that barely has any.

  This is very soothing. I have been using myNoise for more than a year. Helps me study for long hours and with my tinnitus too.

  This moved me to tears. I have very precious memories of childhood summer holidays with my grandparents in rural France. Thank you for taking me back there again.

  I overall love myNoise! It's free and it's calming. I like using it while I'm studing! It helps me focus and makes studing more fun.

  Gorgeous. Helps me fall asleep after a long day.

  I really enjoy the mix of wildlife and thunder I can create. The thunder is really soothing!

  I love it. Great crickets.

  Mom would get us kids out of bed when a storm approached at night so we could listen/watch the wonder and beauty of the storm with a cup of cocoa. I feel energized, relaxed & very happy hearing these sounds of our Earth, grateful that they have not changed. I feel her own forces will prevail over our ignorances, and life will endure.

  This helps me fall asleep, and also deal with anxiety. It's bliss.

  This is my favorite generator by far. When I was a kid I would sit on the porch with my dad and grandma and listen to the storm come in. The thunder in this generator is perfect.

  Good for falling asleep

  Absolutely wonderful! Great rumbling thunder and sharp cracks. I created animation to help simulate the approaching thunder, the rain w/ thunder, and the thunder leaving.

  In conjunction with some other sounds, this one has helped me a lot with my tinnitus, lately. It's one of the best to mask it. It was a very nice addition.

  Feels like I'm sitting under my tree in the front yard at 11 am right before a heavy storm, so calming.

  Been studying to this for literally hours now.. It just gives me so much focus and helps me not stray away from what I am supposed to do. It relaxed me a bunch as well, and the best part is, that I don't really notice the sound until I take off my headphones! It just becomes a natural noise of the environment I am in!

  Absolute perfection, as usual. Thanks for taking me to France. Have not been there since 1998.

  My fave rain/thunder noise so far!

  For ambient sound I always look for approaching storms... This so far is my favorite.

  This is perfect for cold winter nights! Listening to the thunder with the sounds of crickets and such makes me imagine it really is a nice, warm summer night.

  This is the sound my ears have been wanting for a long time! Beautiful deep chest-rumbling thunder and sharp, near cracks that manage to not be ear-shattering. The sound of rain hitting the ground and leaves is gorgeous, and there's the perfect amount of insect and animal noise to really immerse you in the environment. A wonderful soundscape, thank you so much!

  This is an immediate favorite: I came from Lyon, and spent many years spending my weekends in the "Monts du Beaujolais" for hikes, and even sometimes camping in the forest. This generator brought me years back in time.
