Are there any FOSS rain-noise generators out there? I've seen multiple people going "use mynoise.net!" or whatever that site was, but I'd rather not have to use some website and not be able to download the sounds or anything.
This sounds like a fun project to make actually, I'd do that myself if I was able
Maybe, eventually, one day
@IceWolf would you like this boosted?
also there's a website for creative Commons video game sounds that you could just download all the sound samples from and put them into a playlist.
@Canageek Boosting would be awesome, thanks!
And oo that sounds useful.
@IceWolf I mean it's going to rain here for the next like month so if you wanted I could just turn on my phone sound recorder and stick it on my balcony for half an hour if you wanted
Y'know that actually sounds quite nice!
@IceWolf it's raining today, can you remind me later on once I'm up? they'll also be less traffic sounds mixed in in a couple hours
@IceWolf Rain ended before I got out of bed. I'll try and remember when it comes back. With 200 days of rain a year shouldn't take long.
@IceWolf have you tried Noice? I really like it and it's available on F-Droid. https://f-droid.org/packages/com.github.ashutoshgngwr.noice
@greyor Neat, thanks!
...is there a desktop version? We don't have Android. >,,>
@IceWolf oh I'm sorry. Not that I know of. I bet some enterprising person could port it to desktop, though, but yeah.
I boosted your original toot so hopefully others have desktop suggestions!
@IceWolf i think theres one knocking about on fdroid?
@avie Neat, thanks!
Do any of them have desktop versions by any chance? We uh, don't have Android. >,,>
@IceWolf ah right,
@IceWolf idk why i auto assumed android lol, im snoozy
@IceWolf unfortunately i dont really have anything like that
@avie Because who would be foolish enough to go with iOS when they like open source, obviously?
Well, uh, us. >,,>
[we trust Apple more than we trust Google, plus our phone is a hand-me-down.]
Soon, though. Soon we'll have a PinePhone. :3 I don't know if it can run Android apps but I hope so!
@IceWolf i mean yeah thats fair. im pretty sure mynoise has their own app but it wouldnt be foss '3';;
@avie Ooo also there's Anbox, theoretically.
@IceWolf oh aye yeah, that could do you nicely
How about using a media player (e.g., VLC) with whatever sound you prefer?
@ethan There's an idea! =^.^=
@IceWolf Multiple Github hits.
(also "white noise")
I've d/l'd several long samples off Youtube 7 similar.
I followed your GitHub search URL and found a 4 MB solution.
$ youtube-dl https://freesound.org/people/roofusj/sounds/217236/
$ mpv --loop steady\ rain\ in\ the\ city.wav-217236.mp3
@IceWolf there are tons of rain noises at archive.org
@jauntywunderkind420 Do you really need /machine learning/ for this though?
@IceWolf how cool would it be to be able to dynamically adjust the storm, coordinate & script from gentle pitter patter, to a burst, then a slow easing up. infinite intimately scriptable scenescapes, endlessly generatively produced.
do we need? no. but in the horizons i look to, this is obviously tech we should be encouraging each other's mastery of.
@jauntywunderkind420 That does sound cool! But I bet we could do it without AI. :3
@IceWolf Mynoise.net offers an option of choosing whichever sliders and animation features you want, and then requesting an audio file. It's not free, true, but MyNoise is a huge and overwhelmingly amazing project, so it would very much deserve the support.
There's also MyNoise albums, one of which I think is White Noise Rain. But those are only on places like Spotify, iTunes and the like.
And there's a MyNoise YouTube channel, so you could always just Youtube-DL the sounds you like.
@IceWolf For example:
A rain recording that also functions as a wake up timer thing
Rain outside the window
Storm At Sea
Rain On A Tent
And so on. Again, obviously YT isn't quite what you were looking for, but as long as Youtube-DL works, you can download these. And you can use NewPipe to play them.
