Nostalgic Ambient Noise

• Updated May 8, 2017


I’m on a computer far too much. Most of the time I have music, a TV show, or a movie playing in the background. The ambient noise helps me focus. However, sometimes it’s difficult to focus with conversation or singing in the background.

It’s easy to find ambient noise loops of the ocean, wind, crowds, etc., but I wanted something a bit more nostalgic.

Ambient noise from video games, sci-fi TV shows, and sci-fi movies provided that nostalgia.

If you want to quickly download a YouTube video to archive it or to eventually extract the audio, I recommend youtube-dl. You can then use ffmpeg to do any transcoding or to extract the audio.
