Are there any restrictions on using myNoise? Yes. The sound generators on this website are provided for personal/private use only. All other uses are prohibited, unless otherwise specified here.
What do I agree with, when using myNoise.net? You agree you will use the myNoise generators for personal/private use only, and allow myNoise to use the information you explicitly send back to the website (e.g. testimonials and custom generators settings) on its website and derivatives (e.g. the myNoise YouTube channel). myNoise will never use your patron email address for marketing purpose nor share it with others. When connecting to myNoise.net, you may share your connection statistics with Google (myNoise uses Google Analytics to monitor its traffic and Google Re-Captcha to block robots from accessing its payment scripts) - and Amazon (some product links on myNoise are Amazon affiliate links meaning myNoise will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase).
Who runs this website? My name is Stéphane Pigeon. I am a signal processing Ph.D. engineer with a strong passion for sounds. Besides being a consultant in the field of digital signal processing and a professional sound designer, I am running different audio-related websites such as AudioCheck.net - the biggest repository of online audio tests on the Internet - HearingTest.online – an unbiased and free online hearing test and audiogram printout – and this website, myNoise.net. More about me on my personal page.
So, there is only one person behind this website? Yes, indeed, with a little help from myNoise friends. Keeping the site alive and growing takes a lot of time and resources! Your donations help me to assign part of my professional time to the development of this website.
Why did you do all this? Because I am crazy, if you are looking for a short answer. For more details, please read my Interview by Sarah C. Rich.
Help... I need some help! Before contacting me, have a look at the various video tutorials. To understand how the player interface works, and learn a couple of tricks, type [H] - for Help - when you are on a generator page.
I am a patron of yours, and have favorited many sounds but can't find them anywhere...On the main index page, entries associated with a favorite of yours are tagged with a blue star. Above the section that greets you, you will find a similar star. Click on that star to show your favorites only.
How much efforts does it take to design a single generator page? Read the answer here.
Where can I donate to show my appreciation and keep the project running? On the donation page.
Is a donation the only way to help this site growing? Spreading the word about myNoise is always helpful and much appreciated! If you have a particular sonic talent — or have access to a location that might produce a great soundscape — sharing them with me is a fabulous way to help too!
Is there anything like a monthly recurring donation? There now is. Look for the calendar icon on the donation page. Recurring donations are implemented by PayPal and can be paused or stopped anytime from your PayPal account. If you have already contributed and want to donate again but not with a recurring donation, click the little stars associated with your account on the index page. They will bring you to a page where you can top up your account with the amount of your choice.
May I suggest a new noise? I was open to suggestions in the past, but today I cannot keep answering all the requests anymore. So, please contact me only if you have a suggestion AND are willing to help me record it (by yourself, or by giving me access to the sound source/location). You can contact me at
