Ambient SoundsDecember 29, 2016 -
Sometimes music is too much for a situation, but silence won’t do either. Well really, studies are showing silence is best, but I’m in an open office where silence just isn’t possible.
I recently have been experimenting with some of the ambient-sound sites out there. Below you will find a list of 5 single-serving sound sites. But first I want to talk about my fav: Noisli. Here are a few notable features:
- combine sounds (like rain, wind, birds, stream, fire, coffeeshop, white noise etc.)
- adjust volume levels per channel
- adjust volume for the whole page (great if listening to music or something else too)
- there’s a mobile app (about $3 canadian)
- you can run it in a browser tab, or as a Chrome extension
- there’s a built in distraction-free markdown editor (which seems a bit weird to me)
- It’s minimalist, and easy on the eyes!
The other sites are decent too, and they are fun to combine. If you’re not too fussy about having a flash player make the sound there are other great ones out there.
