Ocean Waves

2.1
07 September 2016

Simulates ocean sounds.

Overview

Ocean Waves generates simulated sound of ocean waves. Unlike the recorded real sound of ocean waves on CD's, Ocean Waves does not repeat for hours. I hope this helps you relax, sleep at night, and wake up in the morning.

Now you can save the simulated sound of ocean waves as an audio file (up to 400 minutes), and burn a CD (up to 79.9 minutes with iTunes) or download on your iPod.

Here are some technical details. It's a pink/brown noise generator with a "wave-like" random amplitude moduration. Unlike the recorded real sound of ocean waves on CD's, the simulated sound of ocean waves from Ocean Waves does NOT repeat for hours. Some people may be annoyed by any noticeable repeated sound, at least I do. So I'm trying to make non-repeating simulated sound using a pseudo random function. It would be really nice if it sounds much much more realistic, like Pixer does with their animations, and Ocean Waves is probably around (or not even) "wire-frame" level so far. I'll study the sound more and try to make it better in the future. Thanks. -author

I for one DO live near the ocean and I do love this program, it really helps me fall asleep. It is slightly repetative but not like some other wave generators I've heard. Besides, on calm days the ocean will sound something like this. I also think it's interesting to try and recreate a natural sound purely by electronic means and cheers to the developer for being experimental. And for those bitching about the five dollar fee for the entire program, give me a break. That's the same price or less as a drink at a bar. I'm guessing some of you don't get out much though. ;p

This is pretty expensive for white noise. I even tried John's settings, and although they improve the rythm of the sound, it still sounds like white noise and nothing else.

this DOES NOT sound like the ocean...it sounds like what it really is.... WHITE NOISE/STATIC...and as shareware, I think people would benefit more from listening to radio or TV static, it's the SAME thing but FREE!

For those who've asked, here's what I have my settings at currently (whic seems to be pretty realistic compared to Florida beaches): Light Wave: 33, Heavy Wave: 75, Enable Amplitude Generator: Yes, Acent Time: 88, Descent Time: 75, Wave Interval: 53

five dollars? HA HA HA! you can get the same effect by putting an air compressor hose in and out of your ear. This would'nt even be cool if it was free.

Very nice. I live 30 minutes from the beach and the default settings sound a little fakey ;) Thankfully, the preferences allowed me to speed the ascent/decent and frequency up enough so that the waves no longer sounded like they were in slow-motion :D Simple interface and even lets you time when the sounds should start and stop.
