Ambient-Mixer

Slytherin Common RoomAmbient sounds are great as background noise when you’re working on some task, and if the ambience you’re interested in is the bridge of the Enterprise or a rainy evening on 221B Baker Street, Ambient-Mixer has you covered.

The site is a community-driven project which works to provide unique audio loops without the need to download apps or software. There are lots of general ambient noise categories like crackling fireplaces and ocean waves, but there’s also a whole section called “Movies and Series” with loops titled “Riding with the Winchesters,” “Slytherin Common Room,” “Late Dinner in Winterfell,” and “Shores of Valinor.”

Many of the other categories are worth exploring: The “At Home” section, for instance, has a loop called “D&D Pub/inn” which includes sounds like clinking glasses and cutlery, footsteps on wood, and a crackling fireplace. That’s a great background piece to set the mood for a new D&D campaign. There are also “Unreal Ambiences” with titles like “Open Space Port” and “Mermaid Song” which could be similarly useful.

The site also allows you to mix tracks to your liking, and upload your own sounds to share with others. The files are all shared under a Creative Commons license, so you can use them to your heart’s content.
