Anyone ever check out http://mynoise.net/? "Calibrated background noise generators," the site says, and it has a bunch of them. It can generate white noise and similar sounds, and then it can generate nature sounds or tonal almost-musical noise. Right now, I have a preset called Tibetan Choir, and it's very calming. Another one I like is called Rain On Tent (fortunately not "Storm while in tent" which wouldn't be soothing at all). Basic functions are free, though they're happy to take money if you want to support the project.

I need to put this in my bookmarks at work, for when everyone is on the phone all around me or people are having loud meetings in the cubicle farm.

A colleague of mine, I am told, listens to whale song at work.

Do they use MyNoise.net or something else? I could see whale songs might be calming and focusing. (Unless you're a whale, and you have to figure out what the other one's saying.)

No idea. I think it would irritate me after a while.

Thank you! I've been looking for a site or an app like this. I just returned a sound machine/clock combo--didn't work. :(

We all slept a lot better when the fan was on overnight this summer. It was just enough to mask the sounds of critters outside for Oakley and block the sounds of chewing on dewclaws at 2:30 AM for me.

Long before it got really warm this spring, I would turn my ceiling fan on and leave it on all night, even if I was wrapped up in all the blankets, just for the noise (which was slight) and the air movement.

I've seen sound machine/clock combos. Sorry yours didn't work. I don't know how much of a bandwidth drain MyNoise.net is (I bet they say somewhere), so I don't know if it's an issue. Seems fairly easy on the resources, though.
