SoundGen is a high quality white noise generator app. Grab a pair of headphones and be immersed in soundscapes which will make you feel like you’ve been transported to completely new environments that are relaxing and secluded. A completely portable white noise machine. All of our sounds are hand recorded, produced, and mixed in-house so you are getting the best quality sound available and true to life sounds from nature. Choose from a variety of sounds beyond the typical white noise, such as nature sounds or everyday background sounds. We like to use this white noise app while working for ultimate focus or even to fall asleep fast. You can even play your own music alongside using these sounds as background sounds. Use the app completely free or purchase an optional ad free subscription. Hear the high definition difference!

Use it for studying, for meditation, for work, for relaxing, for sleeping, for tinnitus, for babies, and more!

SoundGen is a sound machine that plays white noise using a sound generator composed of multiple loops and inserts so as you play the sounds there will be slight variations in the evolving track.

Customize your own mixes so that you can get the best of multiple sounds combined. Combine nature sounds and white noise to create different feelings and environments, from a stormy car ride to a rain storm to a sunny day in the wilderness. You even get to name them!

Fall asleep in peace with a built in sleep timer to your favorite sleep sounds. Or simply choose to let the sound run endlessly, our tracks are infinite so you’ll never run out of enveloping sounds for sleep. Hear the purest nature sounds and white noise free of imperfections.

Here is a list of our current sounds:
- Rain
- Thunder Storm
- Airplane Cabin
- Car Ride
- Flowing Waters
- Shower
- Aurora Borealis (hmm... what does this sound like?)
- Infinity
- Fridge
- White Noise
- Brown Noise
- Pink Noise

This app works best with headphones or a speaker system. But some of the sounds sound great from your phone's built in speaker too!

Ads are served and internet connection is required, unless the available ad-free subscription is purchased. But don't worry, in the player screen there will never be video ads so you don't need to worry about loud ads waking you up from your peacefulness.

Best sleep aid app

Simple to use, but has options too. The preset sample mix is more effective than any custom mixes I have tried. I use it most nights and it helps a lot.
I love the new option to select light/dark/os mode and really appreciate the app developers adding that toggle switch on request. Thank you!

Please bring back the original thunder!

My wife and I used to fall asleep to this every night! The original thunder would drown out the noise from roommates and neighbors. Since the update the thunder sounds are much weaker, with less bass, and are mostly low grumble sounds. Love this app, but perhaps you could include the original thunder sounds as an option.

This is a nice app! I usually use Noizio, but it's always good to try new apps. So far I've found it all really good for a newly launched app. The app never crashes, beautiful design, high quality sound and works fine on iOS beta.

(for the dev: Let me know if you need a tester ;)
