Pandemonium - A noise generator/blocker
« on: October 05, 2019, 08:49 AM »
Hey guys,

So i finally got around to making this.
If you have tried apps like noisli or brain.fm, you know what Pandemonium is about.
I work in an open plan office & it can be hard to get into the zone when there are ad-hoc conversations going on.
Noise cancelling headphones are good for low frequency noise but not so good at voices.
What I've found works for me is non-vocal sounds.
Natural sounds like rain, birds, running water, soft classical music (I like Gymnopedie by Satie) work especially well for me.
Services like noisli give you a fixed set of options to choose from.

Pandemonium lets you create a playlist of any number of audio files (anything supported by the IrrKlang library).
You can then simultaneously play all the streams over each other, setting volume on each stream.
I've found it really helpful for focusing & hope it might be useful to others.
It's probably best used with headphones, but that's up to you.

I'm open to feature requests as well.

The attached zip has a Winx64 build since most devs work on x64 machines now.
Built with .Net Framework 4.7.2

Pandemonium Github repo

The UI is minimal.
Drag & drop files to add to playlist.
Spacebar - Toggle play/pause
Plus - Increment volume
Minus - Decrement volume
Delete - Delete item from playlist
