Noise Machine is a white noise and soundscape generator designed to help you block out workplace noise and create a more productive work environment to suit your mood.

It can be very hard and tiring to try to concentrate in a noisy work environment. The chatter of co-workers can be especially hard to block out. Conversely excessively quiet environments can lack energy and can feel very isolating.

Noise Machine generates white, brown and pink noise, whose special properties are often used to mask out other environmental sounds and favor concentration and task focus.

Noise Machine also features a range of natural and artificial soundscapes to suit your mood, ranging from the relaxing sounds of water to the energizing atmosphere of a sidewalk café.

Designed to be as unobtrusive and simple to use as possible, Noise Machine’s icon “lives” in the menu bar and is accessible at any time via a simple click.

The menu bar item allows you to choose between a range of sounds, adjust the volume and change the sound output device.

Some noises show obvious loops

The color noises (brown, for example), have a rhythmic quality from a poorly designed loop that becomes more and more apparent as your brain gets used to the noise. This ruins the effect for me, as I can’t stop hearing the loop.

Samples sound looped

It’s a good app but the Pink and Brown noise samples are very short and looped-sounding. I run it with other white noise apps at the same time so it’s not that noticable, but it would be better if the sounds were generated, not made from looped samples. That’s not really “noise”.

This is a waste of money; couldn’t even get a sound out of it.
