Dark Noise on the Mac


Unfortunately, I played in too many bands growing up and now I’m dealing with tinnitus. So I’m pretty invested in background noise apps, which have generally been pretty terrible, until Dark Noise.

If you enjoy Dark Noise on your iPhone or iPad, get excited because Dark Noise is now on the Mac. If you’re not familiar with Dark Noise, it’s a simple ambient noise app that’s delightfully customizable. They’ve already got a library of sounds to choose from, but if you can’t quite find what you’re looking for, you can pick and choose and build your own sounds to help you sleep, focus, or relax.

There’s also iCloud syncing so the perfect soundscape you created will also be available on your Mac. It’s pretty full-featured and does have menu bar actions with keyboard shortcuts and widgets to feel right at home on your Mac. Try Dark Noise for yourself on your Mac or on your iPhone and choose the sounds or make a mix that’s right for you.

If you’d like learn more about the story behind Dark Noise’s creation, we interviewed its develop, Charlie Chapman, on the Automators Podcast.
