Immerse yourself in the healing voices of the natural world! Be instantly transported into the great outdoors, where the tonic of wildness will soothe your spirit and bring a relaxed sense of joy to your day.
Designed primarily for headphone listening, this app features over 80 spacious 3D binaural soundscapes, meticulously gathered by recording artist Lang Elliott in wild areas across North America and beyond. Audio quality is superb throughout.
• Calm yourself with the all-encompassing voices of thunderstorms, rain, wind and waves.
• Sleep soundly to the rhythmical night songs of insects, frogs and whip-poor-wills, enlivened by the distant hoots and howls of owls and coyotes.
• Relax to the gentle choruses of birds at dawn, or the mesmerizing sounds of birds and brooks combined.
• Awaken to uplifting soundscapes that help clear one’s mind at the beginning of each new day.
• Learn about tracks while listening by reading descriptions that include dates and locations of recordings.
• Use anywhere and anytime … in coffee shops, subways, airport terminals, work places … whenever you feel the need to be soothed by nature’s healing music.
• TWO FREE ALBUMS (of six tracks each) are included in the basic app, with many more albums available as in-app purchases.
• Individual recordings as well as full albums can be looped indefinitely, with listening durations controlled by a timer when desired.
• User-selected tracks can be added to a “Favorites” list that will behave just like an album.
Why Use Headphones?
My recordings have been made using a special microphone that simulates the human head. To experience the remarkable 3D effect, it is best to listen with headphones, where the right ear hears only the right channel, and the left ear hears only the left channel. While headphones produce the best result, earbuds may also be used, but they often have weak bass and boosted treble. To alleviate this problem, we include a special equalization setting specifically tailored for stock Apple EarPods and AirPods.
To experience nature’s magic in noisy environments, we highly recommend modern “noise cancellation headphones” that greatly decrease the ambient noise. Yes … it is quite possible to relax into pristine nature even while traveling on a subway or flying in an airplane!
When listening via speakers in a conventional stereo arrangement, both ears hear signals from both speakers, resulting in "crosstalk" that degrades the spatial cues responsible for a realistic 3D effect. To improve the sense of spaciousness, try placing the speakers out to the sides. In so doing, one's head reduces crosstalk, allowing one's brain to properly decipher the 3D sound cues. While speaker listening can certainly provide a satisfying experience, headphones typically yield a much more immersive effect that literally transports the listener into wild nature.

Ratings and Reviews
Wow, just WOW! Congratulations, Mr. Elliott. You’ve accomplished something truly magical and quite spectacular here. I was a pre-order and couldn’t wait to download. The recordings are crystal clear and of the highest quality which leads to a totally immersive and transportive experience. I can’t believe how amazing the sounds are! I’ve never heard anything like it. Headphones are the only way to go, for sure. The app is easily navigated and fantastically laid out with beautiful pictures, plus I love the notes laid out briefly describing what you’re listening to. Worth every penny!
Simple and straightforward. I like it.
Wonderful of course. I’d expected nothing less from a master recordist like Lang Elliott. I had already purchased the albums available on the website and getting more content by listening to individual podcasts is inconvenient. This application solves all that. Lots more content delivered in a convenient format.
Content seems to be normal lossy files. Maybe allow CD+ quality files as a future upgraded in-app purchase? Of course this caters to the small audience with an external DAC but probably willing to pay a premium.
An ability to export files to a separate player so recordings from other sources can be used in parallel.
I’d love to see even more comments on each recording. Maybe as an active listening mode with subtexts for what each sound is as it plays. Definitely *not* narration over the recordings.

Hello King Eider, and thank you for your review. Concerning CD quality files, we may consider that in the future, but only if the app proves successful. But there is another alternative. Are you aware that on my website I'm offering high bitrate (320kbps) MP3 versions of all the app albums? Just go here: https://musicofnature.com/albums. If there's demand, I may also add a FLAC option (although 320kps is basically CD quality, at least to my ears).
Exquisite recordings! A step up from most apps
Lang Elliott is a professional recorder of nature sounds, and this really makes a difference in this app. Not only are the recordings captivating, the binaural effect can transport you to the exact place where he was standing as he captured the recording.
So much better than other relaxation apps that just loop low-quality recordings, this app is also a huge value for money, as the “all albums” purchase includes future updates!
The only element that I found missing was a traditional timeline display showing where the ‘playhead’ is in relation to the full length of the recording, but this is minor, as one soon gets lost in the beauty of the recordings, and things like relative time cease to be as important! 😺
Well done to all!
P.S. love the way the sounds crossfade … classy!
