Denise Noize – A new type of noise plugin with a wide palette
Plugin developers, Denise, recently launched a contest looking for unique plugin ideas, and the result is the new Denise Noize.
Denise Noize is the brainchild of Jamie Boyle, whose dream came true when his plugin was chosen by Denise as the winner for 2018’s plugin contest. Jamie wanted to see a new take on a noise generator, one which changed depending on the input source. The idea is to be able to layer small amounts of varying types of noise onto instruments like bass or drums which might feel to clean, without having to add extra envelopes and filters to control the tone and response of the noise.
Noise is often an unwanted phenomenon, however in very small amounts it can help to enrich sounds, especially those created or sampled in the digital realm. Noise sources can even be used as the basis for a variety of different drum sounds!
Denise Noize offers five varying noise types – White, Brown, Violet, Pink and Blue and uses an advanced adaptive algorithm to shape the choice of noise and amplitude to the volume envelope of the incoming signal.
How shapeable is the sound?
Denise Noize features various filters to fine tune the sound of the noise, and you can even send just the wet signal out of the plugin for further processing, this could be very handy on a send/return channel! You have control over the rise and fall times of the white noise, this could be useful for those pumping noise drop effects, without having to process any sidechaining. You could use Denise Noize to bolster existing sounds, or even create completely new sounds that compliment what you already have in the project – a great concept if you ask me!
Denise Noize is only EUR €19 (Around R320), you can grab the plugin at Denise’s website.
