 the Relax Expansion Pack for a total of 11 environments in all.
     Also released today is NoiseMaker, a tool that enables anyone to create
 environments for Relax 2.0 or 3.0.  NoiseMaker is free.  No Relax purchase is

 environments.  It provides soothing playback of various sounds such as the
 rolling tide of the ocean, a gentle summer thunderstorm and more.  Relax
