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