12 Hour Sound Machine

Welcome to an immersive journey of sound, brought to you by Free To Use Sounds and the 12 Hour Sound Machines (no loops or fades) Podcast. Together, we’re committed to enhancing your life with high-quality, uninterrupted soundscapes. In 2017, we, Libby and Marcel, set out with a simple recorder on a mission to record the world’s unique sounds. Fast-forward through 29 countries and thousands of recordings later, we continue to archive the authentic ambience of each location we visit.

Let’s talk about Brandon, the dedicated dad behind 12 Hours Sound Machines. His quest for restful sleep for his firstborn led to a podcast that’s been a boon for people worldwide, offering focus, calm, and tranquility amidst life’s chaos. Our collaboration blends the serene audio of 12 Hour Sound Machines with our globally-recorded sounds, creating an unrivaled sonic experience for you.

Join us on this adventure and enrich your life with the symphony of the world.

Subways possess a distinctive acoustic signature that sets them apart. The hollows of the tunnel reverberate with the rasping melody of steel wheels sliding on rails. As the train decelerates, its brakes lament in high-pitched squeals, signifying an imminent stop. In its wake, another train trundles by, its rhythmic clatter and rumble resonating through the station. Within the carriage, the din of the outside world is subtly subdued, replaced by the ebb and flow of human chatter.

Get ready for our next adventure as we visit the beautiful city of Istanbul. We’re hopping on the ferry to cross the fascinating Bosporus and you’re coming with us! This 12-hour podcast is filled with unique ambience sounds that I’ve recorded on the ferry but inside the library we have many more sounds waiting for you that we recorded around the bustling harbor.
So, buckle up and prepare to experience the captivating soundscape of Istanbul like never before. Can’t wait for you to join in and experience the vibrant life of this incredible metropolis through sound.

We’re thrilled to announce that we have an abundance of exciting podcasts and sound libraries in store for you to enjoy. Our goal is to create a comprehensive collection that caters to a wide range of interests and preferences.
