Ambient Weaver

Note (macOS only): There appears to be a (good) security feature within macOS Sierra that is causing the application to utilize a read-only portion of the hard drive. The fix is to simply move the application anywhere else on the computer, after downloading. If your track folder is being automatically assigned to a location starting with "/private/var/", then the previous step should do the trick.

What?...Why?

Ambient Weaver is a desktop application, for 64-bit macOS 10.12.2 and Windows 10, designed to solve issues related to playing ambient noise tracks. Ambient tracks are best played in a loop, but doing so with an individual track can be troublesome. The not-so-subtle momentary breaks between iterations of a loop can easily break a listener's focus. Using ridiculously long tracks can make loop-breaks less frequent, but that doesn't fix the problem. Ambient Weaver is built from the ground up with the idea that multiple tracks can be woven together to create a seamless listening experience.
