Noize 2 is an adaptive noise generator plugin. It lets producers add customized textures and interest to their tracks by selecting from and modifying 8 built-in noise types or by uploading their own samples.
Noise was once something to avoid. Until producers realized that subtle amounts of it can bring power and aggressiveness to tight bass lines, add analog fuzz to pads and percussion, or give vocal recordings a timeless, low fidelity aesthetic.
Noize 2’s adaptive noise generation makes it easier than ever to tap into this underrated but powerful effect. Thanks to the degree of control the plugin gives you over the sound, tone, and behavior of its application, you can use noise in creative ways you never thought possible.
Choose from the 8 available noise options built-into Noize 2 and use the plugin’s Rise and Fall parameters to sculpt its attack and release. Use a short Rise and a long Fall to give a snare drum’s transients a burst of top end followed by a trail of hiss and sizzle. Use a long Rise and a short Fall to tuck vocal performances into a dreamy swell of whispers that you can then widen into speaker-spanning ambience using the Stereo dial. Too fizzy or thick for your liking? Use Noize 2’s filter to cut out unwanted frequencies and bring excitement to your mix while still maintaining clarity.
Use the Solo button to listen to just the noise itself for precision shaping. Place Noize 2 on its own parallel channel in this configuration and you can then add additional effects to build complex soundscapes that take your sonic creations even further out of the box. Thanks to Noize 2’s Adapt feature, noise is only generated when an audio signal is detected. No gates required.
Most notably, Noize 2 allows you to craft never-before-heard noise profiles by uploading and adjusting your own samples. Make your kick drum trigger the ambience of a city street. Fold a guitar arpeggio into a recording of a busy highway. Submerge a synth solo in the bubbling of your fish tank or the howling of your dog.
With Noize 2, you can quickly construct spirited rhythmic vibes and delightfully discordant atmospheres that would otherwise require an arsenal of effects and automation.
