TAL NoiseMaker

TAL NoiseMaker is a two-oscillator virtual polysynth. NoiseMaker was originally designed for other platforms but has been ported to GNU/Linux by the DISTRHO project. NoiseMaker is available as a standalone application, a LV2 plugin, and a native VST plugin.

Note that the GUI has four sections, any two of which can be visible concurrently.

Visit the home page listed below for the complete feature list and a downloadable PDF manual.

Observations

NoiseMaker includes (by my count) 252 presets, available from the Preset menu in the standalone version.

All versions include LOAD PRESET and SAVE PRESET options to load/save a single preset.

Mapping a MIDI controller is easy and is explained in the manual.

The standalone version can save and load the program state (see the File menu).

NoiseMaker seems relatively stable; however, I randomly experienced problems when changing presets. The fault doesn’t appear to be with NoiseMaker itself but rather with the JuceJack component used for JACK support.

Download

  • Browse to the DISTRHO page
  • Scroll down to TAL Plugins
  • Click the download button
  • Select 32-bit or 64-bit

Note that this downloads all available TAL plugins, not just NoiseMaker. I didn’t try them all but I believe the reverbs are well thought of. The plugins have to be manually copied to an appropriate location.
