Are you tired of the same boring rain sound loops? Can you count the number of seconds until the next thunder clap? Wish you could add some wind chimes, or even just some wind into the mix?
Using the magic of Foley Artistry, mother nature, and a little chaos from a random number generator, Rain Soundscape creates and mixes a complete experience from your selections in real time. Most rain sound apps have a single pre-recorded loop of sound that they play over and over (and over and over) until your ears fall off. Rain Soundscape uses nearly 50 different sounds and a cleverly built sound engine to paint an audio landscape for the mind. Listen to the calls of a mockingbird over the backdrop of rolling thunder, or sit on a wind-swept porch as the rain courses through the roof-top gutters.
Using intuitive sliders, you set which sounds you want to add to the ever changing mix. Set the rain bar on low to hear the ebb and flow with the movement virtual storm cells; move it to high, add a little wind and some distant thunder, and you've created your very own desert storm. Become a sound engineer and create the mix you want to hear!
Use this app to relax, fall asleep, study, or even background filler for a play. Perfect for white noise, riki, meditation, and other low-activity settings. The custom sound engine guarantees that no two storms will ever be quite alike, even after hours of playback.
Let me know if you find any bugs or have some suggestions! I wrote this app in my spare time for friends and family, and I would be happy to have some feedback. I've tested on my personal Nexus S, and borrowed a Galaxy Nexus and a Nexus 7. A new version just went up today that fixes bugs and adds new sounds.
This app is awesome! It really doesn't repeat, and I've tested this overnight! The sleep timer and alarm are really nice touches too, but the fact that you can customize everything to your heart's content is nothing short of amazing. For that alone, I would highly recommend this app to anyone who wants to relax. Best of all, it's free and it doesn't use much battery power when playing (though I do charge my phone overnight, lol).
Maybe you can add some ocean sounds in the future too? Rain, lightning, and the crashing of waves would be great!
