This replica of my tinnitus was created using Audacity. http://audacityteam.org/
I had to generate 3 different 'tones' and combine them before I felt the high itch noise was close to what I hear.
I then had to search Freesound for something that I only hear beneath the high pitch noise when my house is very quiet, which is something like the sound of strong wind or a power station a mile away. It took me a few hours, and even then I had to manipulate the sound considerably.

This natural wind sound file was equalized and leveled several times, then he sound level was reduced to blend with the high pitch. But it still wasn't right. So, not being an expert with Audacity, I just went down the list of 'effects', trying each one, until I found "Paulstretch", which somehow increases the time length of your sound file, without stretching as in 'elastic', which would deepen the existing tones, and apparently, without copying and pasting. The sound does change somewhat, becoming just slightly ragged, but it's a very interesting effect for this application and actually got used on both elements to produce the final sound.
I hope no one enjoys this sound and can't imagine that anyone will. It makes me feel slightly sick.
