What does rain sound like? It’s a myriad individual raindrops hitting a variety of surfaces. They might also interact with one another, forming larger raindrops that sound heavier. The environment will also affect the perceived sound – rain falling on soft leaves will sound completely different to rain falling on a coniferous forest floor.
