High Pitch Dog Whistle

Super high pitch dog whistle sound effect for 30 seconds. This file is super high pitch and your dog will hate you if you play this for too long. May be a great sound weapon for pest deterrents as well. Can be used to ward of mice, rodents, rats, stray dogs, stray cats, and even keep your street free of unwanted bums, beggars, hobos, etc :) See the 10 minute Dog Whistle Sound video. Very annoying.

Birds After Rain

After the rain passed there were some nice little birds that came out of hiding and began to make music. The WAV version and the ZIP File version include the full 1+ minute of audio but the MP3 download link is smaller, as we use this to play a preview and it is to large to auto-load on a page without delay. So the .ZIP or .WAV for the full sound. :P

45min April Rainstorm

45 minutes of a relaxing spring rainstorm recorded April 1st 2016. This sort of audio is great to relax to or sleep to on a loop. The wav file is 400mb and the 45 minute mp3 would not render in the player so its been chopped down to 3 minutes. If you want the full 45 minutes download the wave. If you want to listen to the entire 45min on YouTube click here.
