Vicinity

High Quality Ambient Background Sounds in your macOS MenuBar

You can’t always work in places with good ambient noise. That’s why we created Vicinity. Vicinity helps you to stay concentrated, focused or to relax. Using selected, handpicked, high-quality ambient sounds, it enhances your environment by creating an authentic acoustic atmosphere. Taking place in your menubar, it’s super-easy and fast accessible.

Choose youre ambient sound and set the time... Looks to only have a few sounds initially - wonder if there are plans to expand them

@bentossell We’re constantly working on new ambient sounds, which we’ll add as free updates! :)

Completely understand the benefits behind ambient sounds, but cant someone simply stream this via youtube when they please?

@anthony_stylianou The advantage of Vicinity is that it works completely offline, is super-fast accessible and starts on launch if you want to. Also, it provides high quality sounds in stereo 320kb/s.

Y.A.A.N.G (Yet Another Ambient Noise Generator). I think I'll make one with kids yelling and fighting in the background while they watch Stampycat on YouTube and my wife is having a conference call, on speaker phone, in Chinese. Yay, real ambient noise. ;-)
