Create your own soundscapes with Audio Chaos Soundscape Generator

Combine audio files to set the scene with this fun and useful program.

Soundscapes are collections of sounds that, taken together, create a particular scene. A forest soundscape, for example, might include the sound of wind rustling in the trees, birds singing, and a babbling brook. Soundscapes can be used for any number of purposes, including relaxation, theatrical performances, and parties. Audio Chaos Soundscape Generator makes it easy to create and save custom soundscapes. All you need to get started is a selection of audio files; Audio Chaos Soundscape Generator makes it easy to combine them into interesting soundscapes.

The program has an intuitive interface and displays tooltips at the bottom any time you mouse over a particular element. Soundscapes can include up to eight different channels, and adding audio files to each channel is as simple as clicking a button and selecting the appropriate file from your computer. Each channel can contain multiple files and can be adjusted for volume, panning, and potential frequency.

After a few minutes searching the Internet for appropriate files, we quickly created a realistic beach soundscape with crashing waves, seagulls, a plane flying overhead, and distant music. We were then able to save our creation for future use.

Audio Chaos Soundscape Generator has a link to an online Help file, but it gave us a 404 error; fortunately, the program is so easy to use that even novices should be able to figure it out pretty quickly. Overall, we found Audio Chaos Soundscape Generator to be both fun and useful, and if you like the idea of creating your own soundscapes, we recommend it.
