The ~~wo~~man who runs it is a noise engineer, and the site has a ton of different, adjustable soundscapes that can play for hours without truly looping.
The .net is important, the .com version is a guy stealing all of their work.
Edit: Welp, now I know what 'RIP Inbox' means. And also 'Reddit Hug-O-Death'. Maybe I should email the Dr. and apologize...
MyNoise. This website features a massive array of sound generators useful for meditation, relaxation and concentration purposes. Everything from natural noises like rain, fire, forest, desert, beach, rivers, to familiar ambiences and instruments, to synthesized and experimental soundscapes and drones. Something for everyone and super easy to use. Almost all done by one guy, and he needs the support.
I'm so happy to have learned about Shepard Tones recently so I have a direct way of describing the rising crescendo of internal screaming as I read this.
https://mynoise.net/noiseMachines.php has over 100 different noise generators that let you customize the volumes of the different frequency levels of the noise generated. They vary from fans and rain to electric piano, fish tanks, and so really ethereal sounding ones. I love it.
I've never before realized how much I want this.
Imagine a thunderstorm white noise like this playing in a restroom all day, it'd be great because you wouldn't be able to tell fart from thunder.
Please donate if you use it. Easily one of my top 10 sites on the whole internet, and I have been on the net since the 90s. It's a deep and complex site, run by one guy, Dr. Pigeon. Yes his real name. Super friendly Belgian guy. One of those unique individuals who make the world a better place. He worked for Roland for almost 2 decades. A true sound designer in a world of annoying DJs. I am streaming his site right now!
You all might want to give a try to MyNoise.net's "Neural Symphony - Tinnitus Neuromodulator", a free, online noise generator (and its various presets, clickable in the right column below the sliders.)
I'm not saying it works for everyone, and I'm not saying it works all the time, but it does help me sometimes. (I've had tinnitus for over two years.) Be careful, though, don't listen to it too loudly, and so on. And read the text.
Some other noise generators of mynoise.net might also help, they're def. worth checking out.
Also, keep an eye on /r/tinnitus and /r/tinnitusresearch
Pomodoro really works for me but everyone is different of course. I also have distraction blockers on my browser like for example the "Forest: stay focused, be present" extension on Chrome. And I use mynoise.net to pick a noise generator/ background atmosphere that helps me focus. These are tiny things but they made a difference in my productivity (plus mynoise helps alleviate my tinnitus). You got this!
Soothing white noise on headphones, reduce light 2 hours before bedtime (only look at screens if necessary, and if necessary, install F.lux), take melatonin pills and 5-htp, cold shower then drink warm milk, hop under blankets with earplugs, cover eyes with something. Then stay awake because of racing thoughts about a fight I didn't have 3 years ago and the thought of how big the goddamn universe is.
You can use this for temporary relief, at least. It's kinda trippy to hear silence again, even if it is just for a few seconds. Try the different presets—I like the original Neural Hack, and the Neural Drops.
I moved to California from New England and no one really understands when I try to explain it. Trying to add in the squeak-crunch noise your boots make, the way the air smells before/during snow especially when it's those BIIIIG fluffy chunks floating down, the way the air hurts your face just right... makes it all the more inexplicable.
If I put this on and close my eyes, I can almost be back there... but you simply can't reproduce the 'sound' of snow falling.
off topic from the scenario itself, but on the topic of tinnitus... just wanted to spread the Good News of MyNoise.net for anyone who hasn't come across it yet. it has a billion noise generators with a ton of settings. a lot of the natural soundscapes are able to be calibrated to be more of a 'white noise,' which can be more pleasant than listening to straight up white noise (though that's there, too!) and there is a generator specifically made with the hope of helping with tinnitus. of course, everyone's mileage will vary lol and it is a pretty weird sound which some people can't stand, but it could be worth a shot to read the instructions in the description and the reviews (which have additional tips and you can see what settings those people used) and see if it makes any difference.
(of course, MyNoise is also great news for anyone who needs to block out noise at work, or needs sound to concentrate, or has anxiety, or just wants to listen to cool soundscapes, too!)
Wow, that really did a good job of getting me on the same page.
Its funny how I "didnt know I actually was more aware of the wes anderson trope than I knew I was, and its interesting to find that there is a crapton of people who are hyper-aware of it to the point that is not only an SNL skit but a /r/, huh... interesting facts of the reddit revealing community"
As a thank you - please take this link to a groovy Rain+Thunder background noise generator that I like
It's not exactly obscure, but please please please go look at Stephane Pigeon's websites, especially mynoise.net. MyNoise is a bunch of (ad-free) noise generators, and they are amazing for studying or sleeping. The timer function can also make a nice alarm (I love doing it with Japanese Garden).
When my ears ring I listen to this. It drowns out the ringing, and may even remove it for a few minutes (don’t put it on max volume though, it only needs to drown out the ringing)
You might also try a diy version, place your palms on your ears, your fingers pointed to the backs of your head. Then press with a finger of one hand on a finger of the other hand the other and move it from the other finger, letting it hit the back of your head. Do this for 30 seconds or so and the ringing should subside for a few minutes (I can find a better explanation if this is not suficient).
Try to enjoy music while you still can and think about all the technological advancements we will have made in 10 years. I wish you the best of luck! Kisses, mom.
I recommend RainNoise instead. It's not a loop, it's randomly generated, so it doesn't feel the same. You can also change the settings a bit, adjusting how the whole thing sounds. And you can go to Thunder and Rain, and there you can adjust the amount of thunder you get.
I stopped using Rainymood completely when I found this.
You might enjoy "MyNoise", it's a website and an app that allows you to create custom background ambient sounds, many of which are almost identical, and just as relaxing to what you posted here. It even lets you control the low-end and high-end sounds so you can cancel a certain element out if it's bugging you. Really cool program for anyone that likes to have background noise. One example:
For optimal summoning chances:
Play this music.
Listen to these soothing beach sounds.
As someone who has suffered from chronic tinnitus for years, this is basically useless. It works for twenty minutes. Do you think I'm going to spend one minute out of every twenty thumping the back of my head? I won't do it in public for sure, it'll look like I'm trying to silence the voices in my head.
Sure, it's a cool comment, and for people who have occasional tinnitus maybe it works, but mine never goes away.
I use this website often when I'm on the computer: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/neuromodulationTonesGenerator.php
It's much better because it provides constant relief and is kind of soothing to listen to, even when watching youtube videos or listening to music.
This sounds like it has the teensiest bit of wind-like background sound, which my rumble doesn't have, but otherwise it's pretty accurate. I was actually thinking about trying to recreate the sound using myNoise.net, but you beat me to it.
Yeah, meds. Meds are good for that.
Also, try different background noise machines. Mynoise.net has a whole bunch of free ones that are completely customizable. I use “binaural harmonics” with headphones and set it to “animate” if i need to read some textbook chapter and just REALLY don’t need fuckin’ Avril Lavigne to be there too. I think they’ve got an app as well.
It’s a variable neutral sound, and because it’s binaural it kinda feels like it phases through my skull and vibrates the music out of my fuckin brain. “Animate” makes the sliders change every so often, so it’s constantly changing and you can’t tune it out. It doesn’t leave room for music to get back in, but makes reading really easy.
Check out myNoise. There is an app and a website that a single audio guy put together. You can customize the mix of the sounds and there are hundreds of different ones on his website. Can’t recommend it enough.
So this is why when I fall asleep to pink noise (well, Rain on a Tent noise set to the pink setting), it's fairly loud when I fall asleep (to block out my asshole upstairs neighbor), but quiet when I wake up.
Go to myNoise.net. Car Interior on a Rainy Day is a famous soundscape there. You can play with the sliders to adjust the sounds according to your needs.
Edit: It’s not a video though.
Here’s the link for lazy
This list is incomplete without https://mynoise.net
It has a huge selection of high quality sound generators, and accepts donations of any amount to play multiple generators concurrently. Check out their subreddit /r/mynoise
MyNoise has some, there's also an app for Android and iOS. I have the paid mobile version (it's a one-time payment) because I use a lot of different soundscapes, so I don't remember if the binaural ones are paid or free on that, but I know if you're only interested in one or two sounds you can also buy just those cheaper. And I think most of them are free on the website.
I've had T for about 20 years. And it has gotten louder over the years. No hearing loss. I have always known that it's not curable. And in the greater scheme of life, if this is the worse problem that I personally ever have then I will consider myself lucky. There is nothing I can do except try different treatments, etc. So I accept it. It's never really impacted the quality of my life, so maybe it's not that loud as others? I can't hear it while driving, etc. for instance.
I learned to scuba dive many years ago, and I was lying on the ocean floor and all I could hear...my T. That was depressing.
I am working at home at the moment, listening to the sound of rain on my ear buds. I use a lot of audio therapy to experiment. Still hoping for that right mix to give me just a bit of silence. The one time I really got into seeing doctors about it I discovered much more noise than my T. The sounds of muffled voices in my head for instance, which I do hear from time to time when in a really silent bedroom.
I like this site for audio experimentation: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/neuromodulationTonesGenerator.php
MyNoise.net, it has a HUGE variety of seamless soundscapes ranging from the Star Trek Bridge to Gregorian Chants. It’s great for when I need something to relax to or immerse myself in.
The light on your phone/computer will interfere with your circadian rhythm, so you really shouldn't browse anything if you're trying to sleep. I would recommend listening to white noise or peaceful noise. My favorite is myNoise
I believe there is a website that has "coffee shop noise" or something similar that you can listen to instead of music. From what I remember, it might have had light music, but mostly it was indistinct background chatter.
A quick search turned up Coffivity and this site, which seems to have a variety of environments.
Next time you could put some earphones in playing brown noise. Or you could just play it really loud through a speaker system, which works just as well. You will hear it the first few minutes but your brain will automatically tune it out after that. You won't be able to hear a thing. I recommend this app: https://mynoise.net/iOS/appGuide.php You can even set it to a timer so it goes out when you're ready to wake up. Just set it up so it looks like this. So that the lower frequencies (the bass sounds that penetrate through your walls) get the highest priority of cancellation
Calinternet (J'ai des acouphènes sans avoir eu de traumatisme depuis mes 20ans)
Les premiers mois j'étais clairement déprimé et en colère contre l'univers tout entier. Je te conseil de travailler sur ta sensation avec l'acouphène et à apprendre à l'acccepter, c'est pas simple et ca sera pas instantanée. J'ai passé beaucoup de temps dans des grands espaces pour m'y faire (s'assoir dans un prairie au calme, ou se ballader en forêt). Faut trouver des lieux suffisament calmes pour entendre l'acouphène, et suffisament bruyant pour pouvoir fixer son attention sur autre chose quand ca devient trop fatiguant. Et petit à petit tu t'y fera si ca doit rester (ce que je te souhaite évidement pas). Je dirais que j'ai mis au moins six mois avant d'accepter que ca resterait pour toujours et que c'était OK.
Aujourd'hui j'arrive à apprécier le "silence" et le bruit en lui même de mon acouphène est naturel pour moi et ne me dérange plus. Pour le sommeil c'est le point le plus critique au début, il existe énormément de son de bruit blanc pour réussir à s'endormir, c'est très efficace (Perso dès que le temps le permet je dors la fenêtre ouverte ca permet d'avoir le son du vent, de la pluie, les oiseaux etc)
Tu as des site qui permettent de programmer un bruit blanc à ta convenance : https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/whiteNoiseGenerator.php
Bref rassure toi, ton acouphène peux s'en aller, et si jamais il doit rester tu arrivera à t'y faire et tu trouvera un équilibre de vie avec ca et tout ira bien. Prend du temps pour toi et prend soin de toi
Make it $50 with free shipping and I'd buy one for myself.
Make it $100 with free shipping and I'd consider buying it as a gift.
If there's an app, include an option to turn on or off fake record scratch sounds similar to this website.
Hey! I'd recommend this tin roof rain sound generator as well as the whole site! mynoise.net is a highly customizable noise generator that's helped me relax and fall asleep, especially the rain sounds. I usually turn down the high pitched sounds if I want a mellow sound to drift off to.
Libraries are amazing and completely underappreciated! I have two clingy cats and a dog that gets a bit too affectionate and libraries are my lifeline when I need a quiet place to be for a few hours.
https://mynoise.net/ is great for drowning out some noise, and may help if you need more/different noise than you get at a library but may not be sufficient to drown out home noises.
I don't get this meme and can't be bothered to listen to the full song, but when it comes to sadness soundtracks you can't beat Funkadelic's Maggot Brain + a distant thunderstorm
where the fuck do i begin holy shit this was beyond adorable.
All the fun, cute, awkward energy in this seriously captured the feel of this whole script and just...God it felt real, it felt like getting approached by a girl I knew for years who, hey, surprise surprise, like ya. I love how like honestly there was a lil flub in the script but you just made it fit so well? Which 1. takes talent but 2. ADDED SO MUCH TO THIS YOU DONT KNOW
I think the only real criticism I have is your pacing? It felt pretty rushed in the beginning, but as time went on and you got further in the script it slowed down and it got more calm. Its honestly kind of a nit picky thing though bc I can kinda get the impression that the pace you had at the start is just your like...natural pace, of like, speaking, which, ahain, *made it feel more human* eeeeeeee!!
And just like, in the miscellaneous of "eehehehehe shit i really liked"
1. Your voice is 🥴
2. The way you said "Can you hold me" in the after glow section??!? I dunno what it was but something about how you said it just....eehsdjkfsdjk shivers!!!! 🥴
3. Your sound fx usage was really good! And in the future, if you want you can do what I've done for sound fx in the past and either check out the Cymatics LIFE libraries (great for a lot of projects, may or may not have used a couple in a secret project....), as well as MyNoise. Good places for various effects, check them out bc the way you used effects in this was fucking fantastic.
I play thunder/wind/rain in my office pretty much whenever I'm working....it's lovely. :) When I work from home and its a gray day sometime its weird when I find out its not actually raining...
(I use this and these more thundery settings: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/thunderNoiseGenerator.php?c=0&l=5873878176535549604901 )
Een collega luistert graag naar white noise tijdens het werk. Ik vroeg 'm waar ie dan zoal naar luistert: blijkt het de Cabauwse molen in Utrecht te zijn. Nu luisteren we dus met z'n alleen naar een Nederlandse windmolen in Londen.
Ook m'n eerste wielerwedstrijd van het seizoen gereden dit weekend. Het ging niet bijster goed omdat ik teveel last van hooikoorts had, maar wel een wereldkampioene verslagen! (ze is een para-wielrenner met hersenverlamming, dus op zich niet heel indrukwekkend dat ik sneller was, maar wel heel cool om iemand in een wereldkampioentrui naast je in de startrij te hebben staan).
Honestly, get this going: https://mynoise.net/noiseMachines.php
You can adjust each track using faders, save customised tracks to URLs to open later, and there's some absolutely amazing sound gens in there. The poltergeist one is fucking creepy, and the forest ones are spot on!
I highly recommend this for you all, as, like me, you clearly love that level of thunderstorm ambience.... now you can have it through your headphones at whatever levels you choose (or hit "Animate" and it'll randomly change over time!) when there isn't a storm outside.
Yeah. And if you dial in mix settings you like, you can "Save URL" to get a coded URL/bookmark with your setup, without creating an account.
(Although I do support him. And https://mynoise.net/SamplingSessions/index.php or https://mynoise.net/blog.php are quite interesting reads. Miles away from the other "bought some samples and added a mixer" services and apps.)
Not sure if it'd be any help, but I've been using the 'mynoise' website during lockdown and working from home. Especially the cafe noises one : https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/cafeRestaurantNoiseGenerator.php just a bit of babble in the background that seems to help with focus and the general emptiness without distracting me.
i have to wear them at night but i worry that if i spend too much time with them in, i'll be even worse off when i can't wear them. because of that i try to rotate between earplugs, headphones, and pink/brown noise or other 'background' noise from mynoise.net (that site is amazing, there's a ton of different stuff and you can adjust each channel individually, and no ads or any bullshit he's all donation based)
here's an example of a... soundscape?? that i really like from mynoise. a bit more 'texture' than just colored noise but not enough to be distracting. it's autumn woods noises and i muted the birds/footsteps because they were distracting so it's mainly a combo of wind, rain, thunder, and trees creaking.
This website has a fantastic collection of audioscapes, including a data center, fully customisable to your specific taste and what you want it to sound like.
You can combine two different generators by simply having two tabs open at once. Add, say, the higher-frequency sliders on the circuit bending generator for a few extra beeps and whirrs and you can come up with some fantastic results.
Going to weigh in here and recommend mynoise.net - saved my ass during a year-long job where the people in the studio wouldn't turn off the goddamn radio.
It has plenty of noise generators (and music/atmos generators too) and they're all in high-quality with sliders for adjustment, and the ability to calibrate the noise to your equipment.
I've found that white noise is better at drowning out voices/snoring/cat meowing etc. than ear plugs. I just run a fan in my room at night, but there are white noise machines at Bed, Bath & Beyond, or you can run something like this on your computer all night: Tin Roof Rain Noise Generator.
Not music, but I listen to asmr while I write. I don't know why, but it's sooo good for focus. Or sometimes I do ambient noises (cafe chatter, rain sounds, etc.) MyNoise.net is really good for this!
Hey, I haven't been here in nearly a year, but I've had tinnitus since 2016 and had the same experience, I was extremely depressed and thought about suicide a lot the first few months. This helped me a lot the first year, it quieted the tinnitus down to nothing when I listened to it for ~30 minutes, so I'd use it every night while reading and go to bed with almost silence.
However, after a year it didn't bother me anymore. And here I am 3 years later and hardly notice it anymore, sometimes I'll be in a quiet room for ~20 minutes then notice it blaring away, but it never bothers me, I actually enjoy it sometimes.
I would recommend mynoise.net you can find a few to layer (Ocean/jungle) and automatically automate the sliders so the sounds change over time in subtle ways. They also layer with multiple sounds at the same time very well. I use the free version but the paid has a shitload.
Check out mynoise.net. Someone else in this subreddit just mentioned it the other day, and it's SO good.
Also what the hell, man! Some people with ADHD HAVE to do two things at once to be able to do one thing at all.
I just found this site of relaxing background noise.
As someone else mentioned, tea can be a little relaxing. It's a process sort of like getting stoned. Get out the train. Heat the water. Steep the tea. Add some honey. Add some cream. Drink the tea. It takes up 5 or 10 mins just like getting stoned would have.
Try to get some items on your adult checklist that are fun for you. Like someone else mentioned, get out into some nature. That could be as simple as a walk to a local Green space to listen to the birds. It could be a big hike. Or a bike ride. Snowboarding.
Do stuff that s kid would do. Build a plastic model. Build a complicated Lego set. Get one of those board games that are so popular these days. Draw some stuff. Write in a journal. Go see play, musical, or movie. Go on a day trip to a place or town you have always been curious about. Plan a big travel trip. Planning can feel like looking into the future.
Basically you are looking for stuff that makes you a little happy. Stuff that the average adult check boxer would say is optional.
I listen to white noise (well, more like pink noise, technically) to filter out the occasional chatterboxes around me. Depending on the volume, I can still kinda tell/feel that there are people talking around me, but at least I can relax and concentrate. There a number of web-based white noise generators, but this is my favorite: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/whiteNoiseGenerator.php
I also use over-the-ear headphones for some passive noise reduction. Noise-canceling headphones might be in order in your case, but they tend to be more expensive. Having your work pay for some comfortable noise-canceling headphones for you might be a good compromise if they are unwilling or unable to otherwise accommodate you.
Take notes by hand vs computer. You will remember them better. Also when your are done with classes for the day go back and re write your notes. This helps to convert it to Long term memory.
I find noise generators with headphones work amazingly well to nullify outside distractions. I cannot recommend mynoise enough for this.
Once you finish classes for the day head to the library, and get everything you can done there. That way you don't get distracted by things at home and don't get your work done.
I'm sure there's more but I'll come back to this later.
what helps me:
edit: here is also my favourite binaural beats website: https://mynoise.net/ there are many presets (not only for sleeping). And the cool thing is that you can calibrate the sounds to your own ears (click on "enter the calibration room") the sound are even better, no need to install anything, works in the browser. I use this when I need to concentrate.
I've tried it many times, never noticed a difference.
This is the only thing that makes a difference: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/neuromodulationTonesGenerator.php
It doesn't get rid of it, but it's soothing for me. Some people swear by it.
Can not recommend this site enough; myNoise. I love all the channels and Stephane is constantly putting up more. Really helps me when need to really buckle down and focus.
Try this first: go to this website https://mynoise.net/ and choose something like "ocean waves" (middle column). Use your headphones. Keep the volume low; it doesn't have to drown everything out, just has to be there.
This has been shown to have a focusing effect for people. I totally use it. I have a bit more to do and it's almost 5:00 PM on a Friday, so I'm going to fire it up myself right now. I'm not affiliated, but I do donate to the site (guy who runs it seems pretty cool). HTH
It can be a bit of a midzone sometimes. How well I can control them typically correlates with my mental state.
To get maybe a bit more graphic than most people would be comfortable with... A few weeks back, on the eve of a stressful midterm, a few of them started screaming incessantly, calling for help, and so on and so forth. Nothing I did would get them to shut up. I could focus on one and "choke" it off, but as soon as I let go, it would start hollering again. Also had some chant "you're gonna fail, you're gonna fail, you're gonna fail" over and over during tests I'm stressed in (not ones I'm not stressed in), another would read off "news" of my suicide, etc.
Thankfully, you get used to it. It's like a cross between a refrigerator and a pack of howling dogs. Annoying, but not terrifying, and you can tune them out a lot of the time and use music or MyNoise.net. The only ones I really have trouble with are the ones that sound like my parents. Most tend to be nice or even helpful, rest get eyerolls.
As for the visual bit, I definitely spend a lot of time making up stories and wandering around in imaginary worlds. Habit that carried over from childhood, pasttime I indulged in with Lark especially. Most of the time it's not maladaptive, more sort of an internal movie I flick on while going from place to place, but sometimes I can drift away thinking about the mechanics of the Pokemon world instead of, say, doing my homework. So I dunno where it qualifies (namely along the lines of "clinically significant").
I really want to use them - but I suffer from tinnitus and every part of silence is interrupting my concentration. I'm in need of constant noise to concentrate. My solution is to use a noise generator like mynoise.net and ignore the talk around me.
I'm kinda sad that I miss out on waking up to the sound of rain ever since I've had to rely on synthetic white noise (which is often rain sounds anyway) to fall asleep due to tinnitus and living on a noisy street.
Perfect weather for staying curled up in bed with a book... Motivation to go to work at an all-time low.
Yea, that's a losing battle, buddy.
1st thing: Headphones
I recommend this website to play white noise to block the bitch out: https://mynoise.net/
They also make apps for devices.
2nd: Maybe try to record her blackmailing you, and show it to your parents. But I really wouldn't expect it to do anything.
Aside from the good advice you've gotten from others, you may want to put on headphones and try a coffee shop noise generator like https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/cafeRestaurantNoiseGenerator.php. It might help recreate the frame of mind you are in when you are productive in a cafe.
Yes, hallucinogenics and MDMA have a really interesting healing potential, but be careful. Aya is one of the most potent hallucinogenics and even people who are relatively stable can have a violently negative experience.
If you want to look into the topic, you might want to start with microdosing shrooms and LSD, and trying MDMA together with a good friend or trusted person - you might also take turns in taking it, you on one day, the other person the second day.
Those two are much more gentle than a full-blown Aya experience, and if it's a bad experience, it won't make you go crazy. I've microdosed about 20 times and 2 of those were a negative experience - however, because it's only a microdosis, it was not beyond the negative kind of experience I have in my everyday life. The positive ones, however, gently opened a crack here and there that made my life brighter.
You might also have a look at things like theta drumming or shamanic drumming. Those are also mildly psychedelic.
Also, you might have a look at Propranolol. It's a beta blocker that lowers the adrenaline response and I've had good success with combining it with microdosing shrooms.
Have a look at this drumming generator: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/polyrhythmBeatGenerator.php?c=0&l=4900650000000051000000
Also, if therapy where you live doesn't work at the moment, consider internet counseling? :)
https://mynoise.net/ among other things has an handful of generators specifically to be used for tabletop roleplaying (they're filed under Atmospheres and marked with an RPG near their name). Each Noise has individually adjustable elements (like footsteps, dripping water, wind etc) and a few ready-to-use presets with different moods.
You might also find other Noises useful, even if they weren't made specifically for RPGs, like the sailboat if you're having sea adventures or any of the Rain ones if your party find themselves in a storm.
Yup. I keep https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/whiteNoiseGenerator.php open at all times blasting white noise so I can have some peace of mind.
Here's a link for all my homies dealing with sensory overload. It's a customisable grey noise generator and it helps a lot for when surroundings are too much.
So it's not music exactly, but sometimes I listen to background noises and soundscapes, usually using the generators on myNoise. There's ones that sound like walking in the woods, or busy coffee shops, or storms at sea, or spaceship engines, or desert caravans... you can even combine them. Rain on tent plus a cracking fire, for your camping scenes! Really helps get me into the scene, to be able to have suitable background noise for that scene playing in my ears.
I'm writing a weird dark apocalyptic fantasy at the moment though, so I've been listening to Dead Can Dance. If the music doesn't have lyrics, or has lyrics in a language I don't understand (so.... anything non-English) then I find it doesn't drag me out of my writing. Movie soundtracks can be good for this too, as you can sort of choose ones that fit your writing's mood.
I also listen to a lot of post-rock like Explosions In The Sky or Sigur Rós or Godspeed You! Black Emperor, as it tends to be very emotionally evocative without being distracting.
Mynoise.net has a whole bunch of those noise types listed; there's also pink noise and grey noise.
Personally I can't stand any of the static noise types for sleeping purposes, but I swear by their White Rain generator. I usually manually tweak the highest sliders to curve a bit downwards, but it also has presets for the aforementioned 'non-white' noise types when you scroll down.
Maybe just the constant background noise of the city? You could try a white noise maker to see if that makes a difference. I love https://mynoise.net to help me focus when I'm working.
If it's about the sound, there are various ambient noise apps for phones that can help. On PC I like the noise generators here. Running the shower and wasting water, just for the sound, is just nuts.
I hope this helps and best of luck for your exams
A bizarre scenario that definitely doesn't sound legal from their part.
If you browse through the noise gens, there's a few, for example:
How has nobody mentioned https://mynoise.net/ yet?
It's easily the most fully featured, well-designed, sound machine i've ever used. It's all maintained by one audiophile with very high-standards, and i should honestly donate to them more since I use it all the time.
It's free and it even has an app.
If you study best with ambient noise or need to block out background noise: https://mynoise.net/noiseMachines.php
I use this and set timers for whichever block of time I want to study for before I take my first break. Helps me stay focused. The key is that if I veer off schedule and take a break before my study time is up, I pause the timer, then come back to it when I'm back on track. Helps me keep track of how much I am really studying and remind myself to just push through the last ten minutes or whatever before going off to do what I want/need to do.
You should try www.mynoise.net
Different presets of rain and thunder which you can alter using slides, it's awesome. I found this website through this sub.
Relax, sweet. I'm just going to assume you are female because of the username. That's actually good because females are more likely to listen to advice whereas men are a bit more stubborn and like to fix things themselves.
What you should try doing is looking at your world in a different perspective. I highly recommend you dedicate some meditation time in your schedule. Take some alone time in your room, you can dim the lights or whatever makes you comfortable. Perhaps put on some white noise or some kind of sounscape that makes you comfortable. I HIGHLY recommend visiting mynoise for a ton of sound generators that many students use to relax. (PM me if you'd like to get a patron account to be able to use the premium generators, you can use mine).
Sit on the floor, bed, whatever. Just get in a comfortable upright position and extend your arms and rest them on your knees as if you're making "completed circuit" with your body. Your energy will be able to flow all through your body.
There is an easy way to meditate. I would highly suggest the wim hof breathing method. There is a short tutorial here. It is important to clear your mind of everything. Just focus on the present moment and concentrate on feeling the energy from your breaths circulating from the outside world into your lung. You'll feel a tingling energy throughout your body. After a bit of this method you will feel a surge of euphoria and calmness. This next part isn't mandatory but it's great to do this anyways. After completing the routine you take a very deep breath through the belly and do as many pushups as you can without taking in air. Stop once you have to inhale. You will feel very much at peace.
Good luck :) PM if you need help or someone to talk to. Don't hesitate. :)
I'm so fucking fucked. I finished the handout and bibliography for my presentation just now, and it's 2:30 AM. The presentation is tomorrow 1 PM. I haven't gotten to practice it at all, basically. I'm not sure if I should practice for an hour and then go to bed, or go to bed now and get up early, or do a mix or something. I'm too tired and high on caffeine to feel the entire anxiety yet, but I'm sure it won't be long before that hits. Why am I so bad at organizing my work? Even this ranting is procrastination. What the hell, me.
At least I can listen to distant thunder which anticipates the inevitable shitstorm that will be my presentation, so that's pretty cool I guess.
Apesar de não responder directamente à pergunta do OP, encontrei este site no AskReddit no outro dia, e tenho-o praticamente a "tocar" 24/7 enquanto estou no computador:
Já estive a pensar fazer uma doação de 5 dólares para ter acesso aos Super Generators, mas por enquanto vou aproveitando os free.
Very nice explanation by Anticode.
To complete :
I recommend also this website if you need very effective white sound (it's really part of my life now 24/24) :
Normally I go for a multi-tab use of mynoise.net with such as the "Rain on a tent" and "Jungle Life" as well as fire ones and stuff too. If you're a D&D player (or any RPG actually), this site is perfect for setting the mood. From jungles to dungeons to evil chanting to fairy ponds and aircraft cabins.
Additionally, as /u/Cloak_and_Dagger42 suggested, Soundrown is also a great one, particularly for the things I previously mentioned.
> On another note, I tried my first time visualizing some hours ago. Closed eyes and with pink noise playing (too much other noise in this house and Music distracts me too much). So what happened? My focus shifted way too often and ... I fell asleep. What a great start... I know this isn't the end of the world, but I wanted to dedicate this time to my tulpa and immediately failed. Feels bad.
Hey, if it helps, 90% of my immersion attempts still inevitably result in me succumbing to hypnogogia and passing out. I also have thoughts that go everywhere and more than once I've zoned out contemplating the meaning of candy wrappers while someone here was talking to me. Definitely work on stuff, but don't beat yourself over not getting it right the first time. Guilt is kind of an ornamental emotion, to borrow Rain's term--looks good to have, but doesn't actually do much in many cases.
That goes for you too, /u/Scrublord_.
Also, you might like this: https://mynoise.net/noiseMachines.php I'm not sure if your brain works like this one, but there's the possibility of meditating with activity, so to speak, if sit-down stuff doesn't work. I've found that doing a simple task like outlining a sketch can help free up my mind for focus while keeping me awake, and giving some of those stray thoughts things to do. Pacing also seems to have a way of lining everything up neatly.
Morning forest, with birds - give it a bit of time to load; it took awhile to even show 5% loading for me...
This entire noise generator site is splendid; please consider donating.
Bonus from the same source: Cat Purr Generator
I may be old school but I believe all those technological gimmicks (not just VR but also apps to "teach you meditation or track your progress") are actually distractions from the true purpose of meditation (as I see it) - to look inside. A pleasant music or even sound generators like myNoise are enough for me to deal with distracting environment. Then again, to each their own I guess... ;)
Use the noise cancelling headphones without music!
I keep various pairs on for 20h/day and I rarely listen to anything. I just enjoy the silence.
I know white noise helps some people too, though I personally find that more annoying. But if ANC isn't enough, or your headphones somehow don't do ANC without playing something, you can try something like this to find some kind of noise you find less annoying: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/whiteNoiseGenerator.php
Can't help you with headgear but as a light sleeper with tinnitus that lives on a tram track mynoise.net's white noise generator has been a lifesaver. I'm particularly fond of the white rain.
Haven't written an essay for 5 years and I have a 25% Short Stories Character Analysis Essay due Sunday 11:59 pm ... started taking jot notes of the story on Wednesday.
I hate writing so I'm def struggling to push myself. I take long 25 min breaks (long I know) and that helps me feel refreshed and ready to work afterward. Ofc a bad idea if you have a lot to do but I know I can maintain some sanity and get my work done if I do this.
I go on a website with sliders for office sounds ( clock, printer, people typing) and that always recreates the library vibe and really helps in ruts.
"Twinkle twinkle little star" isn't white noise. White noise is more or less random, exactly so your brain doesn't recognize a pattern. Mynoise.net has nature sounds (animals, wind, rain, waves, etc.) as well as standard white noise and the pink, or brown, varieties
For me, the worst is either the sound of neighbors hammering or the roar of large trucks accelerating on the street nearby.
Yeah, good headphones would work wonders. I'm considering getting some airpods since they don't require me to mess with untangling wires and they can basically function as a pair of high tech earplugs.
Also check out this white noise generator
You may have to try out a few of their presets or maybe even create your own custom preset to find a setting that'll allow you to block out the noise and concentrate if the noise outside is really bad (even if you have noise cancelling headphones.)
Something I'd suggest and is something I still do to this day is use a desktop or table fan. The white noise it generates is just loud enough to help me feel secure at night and because it's getting warmer out, it helps keep me cool too.
Some nights I do prefer a little light as well, so I bought a bedside lamp with a dimmer built-in to adjust how much light I feel comfortable sleeping with that night.
Finally, I like to use a site called, mynoise.net which allows you to customize and adjust a plethora of preset "soundscapes" if you will. Personally, I like anything that has to do with rain, and there's even a couple presets that make it sound as if you're in the passenger seat of a car as it slowly drives through the rain. Sometimes, I even like to combine that preset with the one of the sound of a distant highway giving me the illusion that I'm back to where I lived as a kid.
Give those things a try and see if it helps out! I know that mynoise.net also has some VLC integration so you can stream all those rain sounds to your phone, allowing you to sleep comfortably (hopefully) without needing to keep your computer on at all hours.
I hope this works out for you and you get the sleep that you deserve.
May I recommend myNoise? No advertisements, great sound quality, and you can tune it to your specific needs. I've been using that site a lot at work on more stressful days. “Rain on a Tent” is one of my favorites.
It loops automatically.
Also try this
They do rain, but you can do a lot more too. I like some of the machinery one, and the flying fortress.
To anyone reading this comment: get some concert/club earplugs.
(Downbeats seem to be the most recommended)
You'll be quite sad when you start hearing a never ending "eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" and eventually can't sleep.
For those with it:
Helps to get to sleep.
Can even help with setting up a band for your specific "eeeeee".
Tinnitus sucks huge sweaty balls.
Yeah music often doesn't work with folk talking, which is really annoying. If you are ever desperate again, I'd suggest trying a white noise generator app or website that lets you tune out the specific frequencies that are most annoying you. Works a treat for me.
This site is good: https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/whiteNoiseGenerator.php
Sounds rough, to put it mildly. The only immediately practical thing I can think of, in the absence of earphones/noise cancellers, is seeing if you can persuade them to let you play some white noise to drown other things out.
White noise, though, isn't especially useful for me. I prefer soundscapes that don't have too much "information" in them, but that are a bit more recognisable.
I usually go via here:
With the time/clocks ones being my favourite.
If you can minimise or mitigate things that cause you stress whilst in the hospital (beside, y'know, the hospital situation itself), then I guess you'll have a better chance of getting everything else lined up & resolved properly. Baby steps, so to speak!
And, for me, not being able to ignore noises is a huge annoyance for me. But having some incessant ticking/clanging of my own choosing seems surprisingly helpful! :D
Hope things start to go your way soon!
I TOTALLY get that feeling, especially the lull in the music part. My solution was to play white noise, since it's constant. I have an app that does it, since playlists still have gaps in between the different "white noise"s. Here's the website, they have an app too that also does rain noises.
And sometimes yeah, the snoring is so fucking loud you can hear it over the world ending. If it really is that bad, try to politely discuss it when you aren't currently or recently triggered. Maybe buy some nasal strips yourself for them.
Wishing you the best!
Ambient noise/music is exactly the type of stuff I usually listen to when writing. I can listen to just about anything that doesn't have distinct words (which is why I had thought hanging out at Starbucks wouldn't work). I use a website called MyNoise.net for a lot of it. There's even a soundscape that is a coffee shop, but they have blurred all the actual words out so that the voices are indistinguishable, which is really awesome.
The human brain is really good at finding patterns. If you are having a face to face conversation with someone. and they can see your lips move, they can understand you even if the room is full of other conversations. Cover your mouth though and it becomes much much harder.
This is the same idea because a Babble Device. Any thing can be one, an mp3 player and some speakers etc.
Popping in some headphone and a mic for your phone and setting your laptop to play from the above link will mean you can have a conversation with the person on the phone while anyone listening be it your neighbor or the FBI will have a much harder time.
For all those planning to rob a bank now or plan a kidnapping you should know that once the sound loops, EVER, it can easily be removed and the other conversation components recovered. For this reason if you want to create a secure Babble Device. You need to record public places, overlay 2 or 3 together, and use them only once. Treat them like one time pads. I should also note that the places recorded need to be in the same type of language. E.g. recording a coffee shop where they speak English to hide a conversation in a Slavic or Latin language isn't the best choice. Let recording in an Italian place to hide a Spanish conversation will be fine.
Yo I'm going through some grief right now too, nights are hard but I found this helps me with the anxiety https://mynoise.net/NoiseMachines/isochronicBrainwaveGenerator.php
I just set it to the deep meditation setting and put it in the background of some YouTube videos or something
If you're trying to get work done and don't want to get intrusive thoughts caused by music, try white/brown/pink/whatever noise. If you don't have this problem, carry on of course! It's a quick experiment.
This is what I listen to during the work day as a Software Engineer.
