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 be using the myNoise generators for personal/private use only, and allow myNoise to use the information you send back to the website (e.g. testimonials and custom generators settings) on its website and derivatives (e.g. the myNoise YouTube channel). Your patron email address will never be used for marketing purpose.
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 of 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.
How much does a single generator cost to produce?
Read the answer here.
Is a donation the only way to help this site growing?
Financially, you can help me by using this Amazon Affiliate Link every time you shop on Amazon. It won't cost you a cent, and I will receive a percentage of the sale :D Don't bookmark that link, as you must access Amazon from this site. Other than that, 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. They will cost you a fiver every month, 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 recording it (by yourself, or by giving me access to the sound source). You can contact me at
