TAL NoiseMaker, the popular, free virtual analog Synthesizer plugin, shines in a new light thanks to a great GUI makeover.
Getting started in electronic music production is very easy these days. You don’t even need to spend any money to get ready. There are tons of high-quality plugins that can be downloaded for free. One of them got a big makeover today, the NoiseMaker Synthesizer from TAL.
This virtual instrument is not only known to freeware plugin hunters.
TAL NoiseMaker Makeover
With the NoiseMaker plugin, TAL has created a Synthesizer that is free, sounds very rich, and offers a lot. The new update makes it even more interesting and features richer. A must-have not only for musicians with a lower budget.
The original NoiseMaker plugin was an improved version of the TAL-Elek7ro with a completely new synth engine and a lot of improvements in sound and usability. This update is primarily limited to the appearance of the plugin. The GUI, which was getting on in years, has now received a makeover with more color accents. Features are now much more easily recognizable.
TAL says the audio engine remains the same and the plugin is backward compatible with the former versions. So you can still recall your presets and projects without any problems.
NoiseMaker is a 6-voice Synthesizer plugin with two main oscillators and a sub-oscillator. They are flexible and feature-rich with multiple waveforms, PWM, sync, FM, and ring mod. Then, you get a set of 4x oversampled filters (24 dB LP, 18 dB LP, 12 dB LP, 6 dB LP, 12 dB HP, 12 dB BP, Notch) including a dedicated filter ADSR envelope.
Besides this, you have an amp ADSR envelope, a routable multi-segment envelope with positive/negative modulation as well as two multi-wave LFOs. They run in different modes: free, sync to host, or triggered by the note. It also hosts adjustable velocity, pitch wheel control, and more.
Further, you get a multi-effects processor with a Juno-style chorus, reverb, delay, adjustable filter drive, and bit-crusher. And yes, it supports MIDI learn for all knobs and a well-filled preset browser with 256 presets. And much more available on the web
There is no demo for the current version, but here one with the old one.
Not a feature update but the GUI makeover makes TAL NoiseMaker much more attractive and pleasant to use. Thanks, Patrick Kunz (TAL) for the free update.
TAL Noisemaker is available now as a free download for macOS, Windows, and Linux. It runs as a VST, VST3, AU, and AAX plugin with support for Apple M1 computers. The plugin is currently still in beta.
