The Sound of Rain, falling on tropical leaves
"Yet another rain sound generator on myNoise?" you might ask. Yep! The sound of the rain is by far one of the most successful sounds on myNoise, as it achieves a high level of noise blocking, helps you focus or sleep, all the while being truly non-intrusive. It is one of those sounds that your brain can tune out easily; while the sound of rain effectively masks other sonic nuisances around you, your brain creates the illusion of a silent environment around you as it filters out both the rain, and the sound the rain is masking.
There is nothing quite like a rain sound. And though myNoise provides many variations of the rain sound — the most distinctive are the Rain on a Tent, and Rain on a Tin Roof — people keep asking me for new nuances. With Tropical Rain, we now have the sound of rain as it hits dense jungle vegetation. If you need more thunder sounds, layer this current soundscape with Distant Thunder, and with Jungle Life if you aren't afraid of a few critters around you.
Special thanks to myNoise friend and fan, Mike Paul for carrying back original sample recordings from Costa Rica! As Costa Ricans would say: ¡Pura vida!
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.

I sleep each night to this noise overlapped with Distant Thunder, both animated. The higher drops of Tropical Rain with the rumble of Distant Thunder mask nearly everything that comes my way--including the loud, deep wind chimes in someone else's yard that go all the time due to the wind!
Very interesting. Kudos and thanks for myNoise!
♥ It can be tough finding a sound that works well on my cell phone's small speaker, but these settings work very nicely. The raindrops are still distinct enough, and there is enough noise to partially mask sounds like the air conditioner or cars outside. :)
♥ Best way to fall asleep on a restless night!
♥ These generators never fail to work wonders for me.
♥ This is my settings. Distant thunder and close raindrops. Perfect Combo Amigos.
♥ Calming way to help go to sleep.
♥ I currently live in Boston, where it is cold and thunder-less. I really miss Brazil's - where I am from - daily 4pm rain. Good thing myNoise created this Tropical Rain preset!
♥ The rain nuances are great ! For example : thanks to the "Tropical Rain" I can do a better work at my desk and simultaniously remember the real tropical rain (2 acomplishments with one sound !). I'll sure come back to listen to the other many sounds you provide.
♥ This. It's great! It has helped me relax, sleep, and meditate several times. It truly is a great generator, you, sir, are brilliant.
♥ myNoise is the place where I come to relax when I'm stressed, meditate for wellness and focus while at work. This Tropical Rain noise generator is perfect for relaxation, focus and meditation. I have fallen in love with it, literally.
♥ Love this one with the waterfall and the tropical birds. Absolute rainy waterfall paradise w/ some good music is glorious.
♥ I like to combine that generator with music while working. It creates a nice chilling wall of noise, that also helps me to calm down and concentrate. Also, I use it to cool down. Sound sensations really natural and can feel smell of rain and light breeze on my skin. It's also useful when I'm going to take power nap during work day. Thank you.
♥ Oh, those childhood memories where I would sleep, yet stay awake so I could listen to the pitter-patter of rain on my roof... I usually turn up the rain high so I can't listen to anything or anyone. Without myNoise, I honestly wouldn't handle my office stress. I love this site every moment I go onto it.
♥ I love rain, I constantly sleep with it due to my insomnia and anxiety. Nothing is better than forgetting all the problems in the world and just... relaxing for yourself.
♥ Thank you, thank you, thank you... Your site has saved my sanity! I work in a "cube farm" with a lot of surrounding noisy people. I put on my headphones, dial up the tropical rain and I am transported!
♥ This site is the best thing for my anxiety! Rain always soothes me, but it's not always raining, and this gives me the perfect rain whenever I need it. I use it whenever I write, too, and it's incredibly helpful. - xoxo Rae
♥ I'm still in awe of having found this site. So many of these sounds, and this Tropical Rain especially, both brings to mind memories and fantasies; I'm so humbled by your ability and generosity, Dr Pigeon. - John
♥ Thank you Stphane. I work in "cube-land", which can be very noisy and distracting. Noise cancelling headphones and this site have become a necessity to be productive.
♥ Listening to this at the office puts me into a little bubble with just me and the rain, and I can almost forget all the things and be in a simple, calm place, infused with the freshness of the cooling rain.
♥ I love to turn off the top frequencies to remind me of the heavy, battering rains of my childhood home. I used to stare out my attic window and watch it hitting the panes.
♥ Absolutely love this site and this is definitely my favourite generator for studying, puts me in a really focused frame of mind and completely blocks out the distractions of the world around me - thank you!
♥ Now that I can calibrate the sound to match my hearing curve, I can create a rain sound that is not too distracting. All of the rain noises on this site help me to concentrate, and I find them super helpful for studying and assignments. Thank you, myNoise!
♥ The creativity of this site never ceases to astound me... what lovely places you send us to.
♥ ← Summer rain in the woods - the best kind, not an intense thunderstorm, but just a shower to cool things down on a sweltering day. This sounds like so many camping trips.
♥ Amazing and beautiful, very diverse Rain Generator with a lot of Nuances to discover. Well done - again!
♥ This is the sound of rain I've been waiting for. I love all the variations of this. Back in the rainforest at last!
