Earlier this year, the team at Denise launched a contest inviting producers to submit a plugin idea. The winning idea would be developed into a real plugin.
Denise…“We hear from many producers that they have new ideas for plug-ins, but don’t have the resources to build them themselves. This inspired us to create a contest and give producers a chance to make their plug-in a reality”
The winner has been announced and it’s Jamie Boyle for his idea of the ‘Noize’ plugin. An adaptive control on a noise generator which followed the shape of an input source, inspired by Ableton’s Erosion plugin. It allows the addition of various types of noise like white, pink and brown noise to basslines and drums, quickly, and without the need to add additional envelopes and routing to make it fit the shape of sounds. Denise took his concept and the challenge to create the best adaptive, noise-generating plugin possible.
The plugin features the following highlights:
- A switch to generate noise that adapts to the volume of your track, in real time.
- Ability to solo the noise signal in order to apply additional effects like a bit crusher and flanger.
- Full control of the noise envelope by tweaking the rise and fall time.
- Five noise types: White, Brown, Violet, Pink and Blue.
- Extremely low CPU usage.
Denise spent a long time developing the plugin alongside Jamie, and tested it with other producers to fine tune its effect in order to create a plugin that will add a truly adaptable noise layer to a sound.
