NoiseMaker

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Designed to soothe your nerves and enhance productivity by blocking out irritating office sounds, NoiseMaker has a limited scope that renders it below-average. On the plus side, installation is quick, as the program's icon immediately appears in your system tray as soon as you click the EXE file. Basically, the program provides three ocean sounds, all of which sound all right but none of which is very realistic. Even when we previewed them and adjusted the level and randomness sliders, we couldn't tell much of a difference among the three. The final setting, Pink Noise, sounds exactly like its name implies and is probably more annoying than most everyday office sounds. In our eyes, a program this simple really should be nonrestricted freeware, but you only get to try it for 21 days. To make matters worse, the demo only runs for a certain amount of time. We don't think most users will be much more impressed with NoiseMaker than we were, but folks with relentlessy loquacious coworkers might find it a small comfort.
