Zero Noise is a simple, lightweight multicolor noise generator.
I wrote this script to block out background noise like conversations in open office spaces and busy coffee shops.
- Plays various colors of noise: white, pink, or brown
- Built-in timer
- Uses minimal resources
- Wrapper around SoX and Core Audio
brew install sox
If you background the process normally (
C-z), the sound will stop. A workaround is to start it in a tmux session, then background that session to keep the colored noise playing.
Most alternatives focus on generating ambient sounds or noise cocktails whereas Zero Noise is just a simple colored noise generator.
