Noize Retro

Generator by denise

Noise is a secret weapon used by many professional producers and sound designers to enhance and flavour their tracks and sound effects. Noise can be used in many ways, for example:

  • Making digital samples and synths sounds more natural.
  • Adding character and sustain to drums, beats and percussive elements.
  • Adding grit and power to bass-synths, leads and paths.
  • Making vocal recordings sound vintage.
  • Adding an aggressive layer to a built-up section or riser.

If you want to know how the Noize Retro can improve your mixes, listen to these audio examples created by producer nrec. The first two examples come from the 2019 album The Fire by the New York based artist Kendra Black. It showcases how to use the Noize Retro adaptive mode to enhance a snare drum in a modern EDM production. The third example uses a track by nrec himself called Dust and showcases both the Noize Retro and the Space Invader used on a snare drum and synth. Check it out!

What makes the denise Noize different?

Swedish producer Jamie Boyle won the denise 2018 plugin contest. Based on his idea, denise created a plugin that takes noise generation to the next level:

  • A switch to generate noise that adapts to the volume of your track, in real time.
  • Mute the original audio to isolate the noise signal and apply additional effects.
  • Optimize the behaviour of the noise by tweaking the rise and fall time.
  • Choose between five types of noise and apply additional filtering.
  • Additional plugins that compliment the Noize: Bite and Space Invader.
  • Low CPU load.

What is special about the Noize Retro limited edition?

The Noize Retro is a limited edition version of the Noize plugin that features one unique adaptive noise type modelled after the noise produced by old-school Retro system boards, used for many popular Retro games since the 70s. The noise generated by Noize Retro sounds dark and gritty and has a lot more character than regular noise types like white noise. It can make all kinds of sounds - for example bass, drums, synths and vocals - sound retro and edgy, and enhance their presence in your mix.

How to apply adaptive Retro  noise in 5 steps:

  • Load the Noize Retro on your track.
  • Turn on the adaptive mode.
  • Mix in the adaptive noise.
  • Shape the noise behaviour with the rise and fall features.
  • Shape the noise sound with the hpf, lpf and stereo features.
