Tin Roof as a Shelter
Rain has a unique element in the world of sound that provides us with countless diverse options for listening: it's not the rain itself that makes a noise, it's the sound of it striking a surface. There are as many rain sounds as there are different surfaces. Although myNoise has already provided many sounds of rain among its generators, some listeners could not find the exact sound they were after. In many countries of the world, the sound of rain is intrinsically associated with the sound of the tin roof on which it falls. Here it is!
Try combining this generator with Jungle Life for step into the tropics and a truly immersive experience of rain.
This sound generator is calibrated and outputs a pink-like spectrum when the sliders are horizontally aligned. Calibration is unique to this website, and can be used to compensate for your own hearing, audio equipment, and listening environment deficiencies: follow our Calibration Procedure once, then access Your Hearing Curve from the right column.

This is nice for when I'm doing homework or studying. It helps me calm down and focus.
Quite a nice way of hiding neigbour-related noises. Thanks.
I listen to this while studying. So cosy!
This reminds me of staying in the sleepout porch room at my grandparent's home. It's such a soothing rhythmic soundscape and it lulls me to sleep like nothing else does, except perhaps the cat purring one. I want a tin roof house of my own.
This is my go-to generator for studying and writing my online exams. It provides a curtain between my focused thoughts and my sidetracked thoughts, Keeping my attention on my schoolwork.
.So relaxing. A truly amazing experience.
What real, raw rain sounds like!
It reminds me of a rainy day in a shop when I lived in southeast Asia, not sure why, but it brings me joy.
This setting takes me back to the rain storms when I was in Africa.
This one is really cozy and gives a realistic feeling to your brain.
I love how turning on animation makes this sound like an evolving storm... rain to hail, light to heavy, the roar of distant rain with quiet drips nearby...
I listen to this with the rainy-style music from Animal Crossing New Leaf and it's very pleasant!
This really helps calm me down while I draw and listen to music, it helps me to strive to make better art and paintings and things like that so thank you.
This along with some quiet music and the lights off lulls me right to sleep.
This plus the Intense Studying playlist on Spotify makes a perfect pair for mugging.
Coding to this daily now. Zen!
I suffer from chronic insomnia and listen to this to get some sleep alongside medical treatment. After some time my brain started to recognise my rain noise preset as "time to sleep! I'm coming off medical treatment now but I'm not giving up my rain! It has really really helped after a lot of suffering! Thank you so Stéphane Pigeon :)
I love listening to this as I write, it sets me in the mood to write even when the sun is shining. Wonderfully done and keep up the good work.
This combination takes me back to the first time I can remember heavy rain hitting a thin roof above my head about the age of 4, and being utterly mesmerized, and it relaxes me now
I love pairing this generator with the Train and Railroad Noise generator. It's like I'm on a train on a rainy night, heading towards adventure as I drift in and out of sleep on my way to my destination! :)
I use a download of this to block out noisy conversations on the train so I can focus on reading my book.
Love this site. Helps me focus at work, sleep, relax, and meditate. Keep up the good work.
Good for studying and focusing!
Favourite generator, so peaceful and perfect for falling asleep to!
Humid weather might not sound like the best time to use rain noises but it helps me a lot in getting some sleep, so thanks for this!
Love animation a bit fast for this rain, letting each slider oscillate between 0-100. Just the right speed for a relaxing, yet ever-changing storm. Seems to match the evolution of creative thoughts and dreams.
This generator sounds exactly like rain falling on the roof outside my childhood bedroom window. Animating this and putting on some tunes brings me back home every time. Thank you :)
Helps put me to bed on a restless long night. A+!
♥ This is an awesome way to concentrate while studying! Thanks.
♥ These settings mixed with my settings on Thunder & Rain have perfected back when I was younger sleeping on the couch in my sundeck on my grandmother's house. Amazing.
♥ I've been using this particular soundscape to help fall asleep at night after losing my white-noise generating air filter to a mechanical failure. It really helps!
♥ This is literally my favourite noise on this website. I love many noises here but this helps me cool off if I'm hot. It sounds like the rain hitting my window sil next to my couch where I'm currently laying.
♥ We've been living in an apartment for years, with floors above and below us, and I've always missed falling asleep to the sound of rain hitting the awning of our old house. Thank you for giving it back to me.
♥ It's so realistic that I - unconsciously - looked up at the window to see if it's really raining outside!
♥ I added this to Coffee Shop Babble and the street noises from From India and was amazed to found myself in the ideal place to study, a cozy coffee shop on a rainy day.
♥ So grateful for a peaceful sound that can be loud enough to mask, yet allows me to sleep so well. For a misophonic, it's pure bliss.
♥ I just love listening to this plus the Sleeping Dragon, it really helps me get in the mood for art!
♥ I sponsor a child from Bolivia named Orlando, and when Tin Roof Rain is set to the "tin roof" setting, and Jungle Life is set to "insects" and both are set to auto animation, it sounds like I'm right there with him in Bolivia! This is what I always listen to, when I write letters to him! :)
♥ I managed to replicate the exact sound that filled my room back in our old apartment! God, it was so loud we couldn't even talk properly. No other rain sound is enough for me since then.
♥ Sounds exactly like my room when it's raining outside!
♥ I've been having a lot of trouble sleeping after moving to a really busy street recently. I thought I'd never get proper sleep again... until I discovered this site, and specifically this generator. It drowns out almost all the noises without being too loud on the ears. I've never had a more peaceful sleep in my life.
♥ I listen to this when studying and needing to drown out other noises while trying to sleep. Works like a charm!
♥ Brings me back to stormy nights at my old wooden grandparents cottage I would visit around autumn-winter. Good memories of staying up at night simply listening to the rain until my eyes wore out and I started drifting to sleep with a hot water bottle to keep me warm through the winter storms. The cottage and owners may be long gone but the memories are still there, especially thanks to this gen!
♥ I like to combine this one with Thunder & Rain. Very relaxing.
♥ Reminds me of my great grandpa's cabin. It had an overhanging tin roof and on rainy days we would go out and watch the moose and deer graze. Good memories.
♥ It sounds exactly like the rain hitting my window! It helps so much. Tysm! <3
♥ Sounds a lot like sitting peacefully in my conservatory listening to the rain.
♥ This matched with fireplace creates a very soothing feeling from the rain pitter pattering on the roof to the warmth of the fire with the crackling sounds. Just can't get any better for me.
♥ I'm amazed with this page, all the sounds are wonderful. The rain relaxes me in a way that I can even feel the rain drops around.
♥ Our first kiss was in a hayloft in a shed with a tin roof... This perfectly recreates the moment.
♥ The porch roof outside my bedroom is metal, and this generator sounds exactly like it does when it's actually raining. I love it!
♥ I suffer from high anxiety and chronic migraines and this generator helps with both ailments wonderfully. All I have to do is turn this on, sit back, and relax. After a few minutes, my anxiety calms down as does my migraine (usually).
♥ Coming from the tropics, this has helped me study through my entire undergraduate degree in Canada. I usually pair this with either Thunder & Rain or Stardust for all my study sessions. Occasionally, I'd play some orchestral music in the background too! Exceptional study music :)
♥ Dr. Pigeon, you are a genius and a saint. Thank you for providing the world - especially those of us suffering with tinnitus - with a way to cope with the incessant sound in our brains. After hitting an emotional rock bottom (at only 21), my audiologist suggested your site, and it has been a lifesaver. It allows me to concentrate and destress. Words cannot express my gratitude. THANK YOU!!!
♥ This sound generator is amazing! This or the Irish Coastline generator really work magic when I have an anxiety attack happening or when my migraine has gotten to a point I can no longer stand the pain. This specifically helps with my anxiety the best though and I highly recommend it to anyone who suffers anxiety and anxiety attacks.
♥ Works perfectly for blocking out construction noise, annoying co-workers and keeping me focused! Also works very well for helping me sleep when my brain won't shut up. Always slightly surprised when I look up and realise it is not actually raining outside!
♥ I love this generator! I literally fell asleep on my couch twice. Love it, thank you so much!
♥ I made a little donation to say thank you for the "Tropical Rain" generator. I've kept it on while working for about two weeks now. I can actually stay on task for more than ten minutes at a time with the rattle of a good rain on a roof. Thank you for providing a background track to my productive days!
♥ Sounds just like home (:
♥ Can all storms be like this?
♥ This setting is what I have been using since six months while sleeping, all my dreams are half lucid dreams, helps me getting into the right mind state for sleeping, and I don't wake up randomly until I got the sleep I need.
♥ Nothing better than a warm, rainy friday night at home. More bassy sound for increased coziness.
♥ Listening to this and Erik Satie is bliss
♥ This is amazing when I work many hours and I can't find any good music to have as background, but this sound with Coldplay as background, I tell you! It's the perfect productivity recipe! <3
♥ ← I call this one... Safe in the Basement
♥ This sounds exactly like my house in early spring/summer... Thanks!
♥ This has now replaced 'rain on a tent' as my favorite rain set. SO soothing. I felt my stress melt away.
♥ Rain on a window!
♥ I had to take off the headphones for a second to make sure the noise wasn't coming from the ceiling.
♥ I turn the volume up on this, and mix it with wind noise set on stormy weather. I live in central Ohio and we can get some heavy storms. The walls of my house are pretty thin and you can hear the rain and the wind outside. It reminds me of those storms and covering up with a thick blanket and some coffee. Amazing! :D
♥ My favorite rain setting of all the rain generators... nice steady and heavy rain. Sounds great with the distant thunder and wind noise generators in the background. It's so relaxing and nice to fall asleep to I listen to it nearly every night.
♥ Sounds just like rain hitting my AC unit outside or maybe rain on a window. It's extremely soothing.
♥ Sounds wonderful!
♥ Really relaxing!
♥ Ahhh, the EXACT sound of rainfall in the Philippines but without the traffic or the leaks! Thank you for finally putting this out, this is EXACTLY what I need.
♥ This practically THREW me back into my childhood for a split second - the house we lived in had a tin awning just outside the dining room window looking out into the back yard. When it rained hard, the dining room was the loudest room in the house because of that thing! Hearing this brought back a LOT of memories... my only desire now is to have a nice pellet stove generator to go with it! <3
♥ This is so realistic. I actually thought is started raining outside and turned around to look out the window. I was a little disappointed to see it was still dry. But I love listening to the rain so this is great for studying.
♥ I think this is what I have been looking for my whole life. Thank you.
♥ aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh RAINNNNN... even though it's burning in California
♥ When I first heard this sound, I took of my headphones to see what was making the sound outside of my house. Only to realize that it was just this amazingly crafted sound! This sound has alot of depth and it will help me focus for quite a while. Thanks Internet!
♥ This sounds like home. Thank you!
♥ Finally, exactly the right rain sound! I didn't realise the tin roof was what was missing. Thanks from New Zealand, where corrugated iron roofs are something of an architectural icon.
♥ I've been trying to make the regular rain noise make this sound for so long but THIS IS THE EXACT SOUND I WANT! I really can't thank you enough for making this, this will bless my ears for years to come. It's so calming and it really feels like you're right under a tin roof! <3
♥ I love the wonderful setting mood!
♥ This is my new favorite. Rain on a tin roof!? You can't get better than that. This along with my virtual fireplace, super cozy <3
♥ I couldn't find quite the rain noise I was looking for - until I happened to try this one! Now, I'm from the Northern US, so it's not a tin roof that I was trying to find. I think it must be very close to the sound of rain in the gutters or eaves of my childhood house.
♥ ← I love this setting so much.
♥ This makes me feel both cold and cosy at the same time. It brings back so many nice memories. Thank you.
♥ This is it! No more rain generators needed!
♥ Yay! It's here! In Latin America, this is the best sound to sleep to, and now I can have it during the dry season, too. Thank you so much for bringing this one to life.
♥ Thank You! This noise reminds me of my childhood.
