Natural White Noise

The sound of a waterfall is ideal for masking distracting sounds around you. It offers the same characteristics as synthesized white noise, but its organic nature makes it easier for the mind to bear for long hours. myNoise already offers a calibrated waterfall noise. As a reminder, when a sound is calibrated on myNoise, it means that it can be precisely shaped to any sound color (brown, pink, white noises, and so on). It can even compensate for your hearing loss. Since turning a normal sound into a calibrated sound requires heavy digital signal processing off-line, the sound can lose a little of its naturalness, though the loss will be inaudible for the majority of users. This waterfall noise is NOT calibrated, and therefore should sound as natural as possible. You now have the choice between a waterfall sound that can be calibrated, and another that preserves the listening experience and integrity of a real waterfall.

Patrons: you are encouraged to hit the 'Surprise Me' preset link, and discover how versatile this waterfall sound is.

This generator uses multiple recordings sent to me by two myNoise fans: Mike Paul took care of the on-location recordings at Bassi Falls in Northern California, Collin Turner in Moab, Utah.

  When life hits hard I come here to listen to this.

  Helps me concentrate and takes me to a whole new world! I love this sound. :)

  You are sitting by an overflowing stream which gushes over a rock ledge. Far beyond, the main current pours down thunderously, churning the river water into soft foam that floats away, hundreds of feet below you. The air is crisp and cool after the storm.

  I managed to sleep in a very noisy environment thanks to this. This is the only site I use for noise, and always will be!

  Your waterfall sound is saving me from the madness that is tinnitus. Thank you.

  Waterfall helps me to block out tinnitus. It works very well.

  Close your eyes and breathe. Let go of all your worries.Feel the calmness in your soul. You are safe and whole Listen to the gentle sound of the waves and the wind. They are singing you a lullaby. To soothe your mind You are beautiful and strong. You have the power to overcome anything that life may bring. You can do anything. Just relax and be yourself. You don’t need to impress anyone. You are enough

  This blocks the noise of my coworkers complaining to each other about every single facet of their lives! Super great!!! lol

  Thank you so much: I found it super usefull to concentrate and isolate myself while writing and studying when my loud kids are at home.

  You're going in my dissertation acknowledgements when I finish this PhD. Without this absolutely invaluable resource, I could not have made it this far. Thank you for the sanctuary! As soon as I land a job, I will be donating. Cheers!

  This helps me focus when studying, %100 better than music. Especially loud music.

  This is my favorite noise generator. I have a son who is on the autism spectrum, and sometimes his loud outbreaks in the next room are sometimes distracting, especially when I'm trying to study and write papers. The Waterfall generator keeps me focused and on track. Thanks for all you do.

  I used this website throughout my uni degree and now use it while working full time. I recently also started using the meditation bell as a reminder to check my sitting posture. myNoise has become such an essential part of my day-to-day that I can't imagine working without it. If you're anything like me, then consider donating so we can support rare sites like these (and their creators).

  I sleep, study and do many other things with this sound, its perfect, just like this app!

  I have used this site every workday for years. It helps me focus while working from home. I can't recommend it highly enough, and I encourage everyone to donate.

  This is a wonderful resource. I have used several other "sound masker" products and this is hands down the best. But it is NOT FREE. I don't contribute all that much, I am not well off, but I give $5 at least quarterly. Shame on you for thinking it's free. Pony up. Give something back to what helps you.

  I use this generator at least several times a week, I love the customizable, high quality ambience you produce.

  Helps me block out my loud teachers when I am in school, very useful thanks myNoise!

  Sometimes I have trouble sleeping with the car noise and it's loud and I use the sound to block the noise. And it helps me sleep.

  I use these sounds to sleep. All other apps loop and I can hear when it does so, and that keeps me anxious and doesn't work for sleeping... Even the fancy $100 machine at the gadget place in the mall that has all the relaxing sounds! So I'm grateful for this site and app. I can't believe it's free. It's amazing. Thank you.

  There's something sensual about this setting... I love it and play it in the background while writing lyrics to my music. Weird but works haha ;)

  The Falls has helped me overcome writer's block and find a place of relaxation in a stressful world. Sometimes I'll even mute the video games I play just to listen to this instead.

  This is such a nice sound, it reminds me of a small waterfall I heard near a creek.

  I am depressed for a long time now. Last Month I decided finally to get help and who would have thought I got a therapy space. In my darkest moments I can’t really see light or anything besides the twisted thoughts in my head. Nothing can reach me. But this Site is. Because I am able to reach myself, when there's nothing except for the Sounds of sheer water crashing down. I can hear me. Thanks.

  A friend shared this with me. What a wonderful gift he has given me. This is a much needed respite from a long work day. So peaceful. Thank you for sharing with us.

  Thank you for letting us have this on our web browser. I remember this as an app ever since my iPhone 4. I randomly found you again.

  I live in a very noisy street and I work from home. It does not block everything but when removing my headphones I can feel a stark difference. The noise from vehicules, car honks, loud motorbikes, neighbors who are always fighting, it kind of merges with the waterfall rather than being blocked, and if I don't pay special attention to it, it's like it's not there.

  This sound's noise is good for inducing laser focus on tasks. It keeps me calm as I work, too calm for me to do anything else but focus on the task at hand. This is great for if you find it hard to relax.

  I have Sensory Processing Disorder. It makes my senses get overwhelmed very easily. Out of everything I have tried, myNoise is the absolute best option I have ever found. The Falls offers a huge comfort to me, with simple, organic white noise. Synthetic white noise grates on my senses, rain sounds often have sudden noises that startle me, but The Falls is amazing and perfect.

  I always love water sounds. This is great for meditating, sleeping, or just relaxing! I love it :)

  I combined this sound with the song "Quiet Water" from Undertale. Instantly helped me focus on my schoolwork and is super calming! It's also super epic and calming on its own.

  This and white noise are PERFECT to help ease me out of sensory overload. It seems weird, using audio to get rid of audio, but it's perfect for me. Thank you. I will now fall asleep, goodbye.

  I can't say anything else about this website other than the fact that it's simply awesome. Especially the rain and waterfall sounds that I use to go to sleep every day. Awesome.

  A friend recommended it to me through a hobby we share in common, and it's just made my room when going through my speaker a lot more comfortable. A large change up when my house is silent, and constantly relieves the normal feeling of tension one would have when nothing is going on... yet removes the stressed when there is too many people around and it's too noisey.

  The Falls just let me do my best work all week! Totally in the zone with the animated sliders doing the background work. Thank you!

  The Falls is perfect for me - it's 2021, we're still all working from home where I live, and at the moment, there's nearly constant construction noise coming from my neighbour's houses. The Falls' slider animation mode drowns out the angle grinders wonderfully, and it's very soothing as just a background noise at the times when I don't need it to muffle distractions!

  I used the 'animation' setting as one of the users mentioned in a comment. This proved perfect. I love the sound but would always fall asleep with it while working. With the animation setting I don't fall asleep with The Falls anymore because the sound is constantly changing. I feel focused and in a cocoon of warm falls while I write my PhD :)

  myNoise is so amazing and gives great white noise to help you work, clean, and just keep calm.

  I love this generator! Thank you for making this!

  A great way to quiet the storm in my head. Also good background noise to keep me focused. What a great generator for many types of needs!

  It makes me calm but not focused.

  I'm wandering through myNoise for several years now. Every once in a while I hit a generator I took for granted to discover that it contains just the perfect sound for that moment. Like this one, for now. This is only one of the reasons why I became a patron.

  These sounds are truly great for almost anything. They can help you focus, sleep and everything in between. I give the app five stars and I hope everyone here finds this as useful as I did. (P.S turn on animating sliders from the 2nd button from the left under the sliders. IT IS AMAZING)

  Love Rapids, you'll love this!

  Great for hiding background noises and a great night's sleep when the neighbors are being loud.

  My family has been terrorized by monsters who are attracted to noise. This waterfall generator has allowed me the cover to have a heart to heart conversation out loud with my son.

  Great for minimising class distractions!

  Very good for studying! I use it every day.

  My drown out noise.

  This sound really takes me to a small fall in Yosemite.

  When my daughter was two months old, we discovered that the sound of a waterfall would reliably get her to sleep. When she was four months old, we discovered, and stopped spending all our data streaming waterfall noise!

  My go-to noise for productive work!

  After trying out at least 50% of the generators on this site, I have found The Falls to be the BEST generator for READING and STUDYING (even more effective then classical music or synthetic whitenoise). Obviously everyone's different, but I think its worth a shot if you have lots of work to do. Thank you Dr. Ir. S. Pigeon!

  I discovered this one last night when I needed something to calm me down and help me get to sleep. It's been on for the last 8.5 hours, I feel 100% better, I managed to sleep on what looked like it was shaping up to be a sleepless night, and I don't want to turn it off now. Might keep it on the whole day.

  Just a few seconds after this sound started playing I felt warmness in my heart.

  Loving the rumble with low water noise in the background! Then turn on animation settings.So soothing. And empowering. Ready for the battle!

  This is great for sleeping at night. I did wake up three times during the night, but all three times were after a pleasant and very vivid dream.

  My dog is TERRIFIED of thunder and fireworks. This setting, with a bluetooth speaker that has a decent bass response, is able to calm him so we can get a good night's sleep. So Thankful. A donation is on its way!

  This is incredibly realistic! It sounds (and kinda feels) like I'm standing next to a waterfall. Amazing!

  Love the shuffle tape speed control, never sounds the exact same, just similar all the time.

  This noise is mindblowing! Thank you Dr. Stephane!

  Bless you, Stephane! Writer's block no more!!! This is just perfect to help the creative juices flow!

  Haha, you were not kidding about the surprise me button! Thank you.

  Almost impossible to find an uninteresting or unnatural setting - already my number one choice for noise blocking!

  You need a plastic protector as you move in to the mist and the hues of the rainbow.

  This is the promise of a magnificent waterfall as you hike a trail that winds through the forest, vaguely following the path of the river soon to turn into an incredible natural water feature.

  Several of my neighbors like to play loud and obnoxious music and one of the more painful ones is having some sort of extra-loud party tonight. I'm glad I decided to try out this new one, because it's doing a better job than my usual go-to for blocking out the obnoxious music.

  Loving this. Just the thing for noise blocking/relaxation.

  I'm sitting near the hidden batcave entrance hatching secret batplans. Alfred recommends mixing in Rain Noise for that added Batcave feel!

  This reminds me of being a kid and camping in Yosemite. I loved the sounds the different falls would make.

  As a patron, I hit the "Surprise Me" button and I was truly blown away with how organic this generator sounded.
