Ambiance has been discontinued. The app may continue to work on some devices, but there will be no more app updates in the future. All Ambiance Exclusive Sounds are still available as stand-alone, downloadable, seamless looping tracks on the official Ambiance Sound Store.


Ambiance® is an "environment enhancer" designed to help you create the perfect ambient atmosphere to relax, focus or reminisce. Choose from over 3500 free sounds, exclusive to Ambiance, to download and listen to, create customized sound mixes, cycle through playlists, set custom timers and more!

Over 3500 Exclusive Sounds

Create Custom Mixes

Make custom sound mixes using only the sounds you want, to create the perfect blend. Each sound has it's own volume control, so changing your mix is as simple as moving a slider.

Mini Mode

Who says you have to be focused on your Ambiance environment all the time? Put Ambiance out of the way with Mini Mode as you check email, surf the web, or play games.

Highest Quality Sounds

All sounds go through a rigorous quality check and special loop processing to make them just right. You will always get a perfect loop — never hearing a "Pop" or a "Gap".

Sleep Peacefully

Fall asleep to a comforting sound so you can doze off gently as it fades out. Enhance your nap using a customized Ambiance Timer to fade-in or fade-out as you snooze.

Change It Up

- Di526Adobe Air Marketplace Review

An easy, nice-looking way to put a vast repository of relaxing sounds at your fingertips.

The app is beautiful, works great on multiple platforms (it runs on Adobe AIR) and is a dead steal at $9.99. It's a supermarket of sound, right on your desktop.

It's simple UI, wealth of high-quality sounds and useful options make it fun to use. Check it out and have fun!
