How to Install Noisedash on Your Synology NAS

Noisedash is a Self-hostable web tool for generating ambient noises. You can easily generate and customize ambient noises and upload audio samples (e.g rain, wind, thunder) to combine with your generated noises. You have the option to save “noise profiles” so you can easily switch between your created soundscapes. Fine-tune your noises with audio processing tools like filters, LFOs, and effects. There is also the option to manage multiple users. Noisedash is a 100% mobile-friendly application. In this step by step guide I will show you how to install Noisedash on your Synology NAS using Docker.

Note: This guide works perfectly with the latest Noisedash v.0.3.0 release.
