Introduction: An open source environmental noise player that provides various sounds to help you concentrate or fall asleep.As the amount of surrounding activities increases, it is often difficult to stay calm and stay focused.
Sometimes concerts are helpful, but in some cases it can also be distracting. But what about the surrounding noise? It is always comforting to hear this. Who doesn’t want to hear birds, raindrops and crowds in a restaurant? Scream? Okay, maybe not the last one, but listening to natural sounds may help relax and focus. This indirectly increases your productivity.
Recently, I came across a dedicated player with different sounds that can help anyone focus.
Use blankets to play different environmental sounds
Blanket is an impressive environmental noise player with different sounds that can help you fall asleep or regain your attention by forgetting the disturbances around you.
It includes the sounds of nature, such as the sound of rain, ocean waves, birdsong, storms, wind, currents, and summer nights.
In addition, if you are a commuter or someone who feels comfortable in a lightly busy environment, you can find the sounds of trains, ships, cities, coffee shops or fireplaces.
If you like white noise or pink noise that combines all the sound frequencies that humans can hear, you can also find it here.
If you want, it can also let you start automatically every time you boot.
Install Blanket on Linux
The best way to install Blanket is Flathub. Considering that you have enabled Flatpak, just enter the terminal you want to install:
flatpak install flathub com.rafaelmardojai.Blanket
If you are new to Flatpak, you may want to read our Flatpak guide.
If you don’t like using Flatpaks, you can install it using the PPA maintained by the contributors in the project. For Arch Linux users, you can find it in AUR to install it easily.
In addition, you can also find Fedora and openSUSE software packages.To browse all available packages, you can go to its GitHub page.
Relax the natural sound by using the ambient noise music player in Ubuntu
Use the Ambient Noise Music Player application in Ubuntu to listen to natural white noise music.
The user experience of a simple environmental noise player is very good. I have a pair of HyperX Alpha S headphones, and I must mention that the sound quality is good.
In other words, it is refreshing, and if you want to experience the surrounding sounds to concentrate, get rid of anxiety or fall asleep, I suggest you try it.
