NoisePalette by SirenFX


SirenFX NoisePalette is a versatile noise generator, capable of generating signals with variable power spectra using a high-quality spectral tilt filter.

It is customary to assign colours to different noise spectra, such as the “white” and “pink” noises audio engineers are so familiar with. These noise signals have a constant spectral roll-off, often found in many natural processes. Therefore, they sound more natural than noises shaped with more classical filter designs.

NoisePalette is unique because it allows you to dial in the precise spectral roll-off, from red (-6 dB/Oct) to violet (+6 dB/Oct). The generated noise signal can then form the basis for a wide range of useful sound effects, by sending it through a modulator, granular synthesizer, or any other processor. Such effects range from room tones of vehicle cabin interiors, natural ambiances such as rain, wind, and surf, or the high-frequency sounds of gas leaking and fizzing. Alternatively, the noise signal can be mixed into existing sound assets to thicken or give them more presence.

Notes on DAW Compatibility

NoisePalette is a VST instrument, but it only generates noise and doesn’t take any MIDI inputs like typical synthesizer plugins (you will need to automate the plugin’s FX parameters or directly record the output). Therefore, there may be some compatibility issues with more music-oriented DAWs.

For the best experience, it is recommended to use a DAW with flexible routing like Reaper. However, NoisePalette has been tested to work fine in CubaseNuendoStudio OneLogic ProWaveform, FL Studio, and DaVinci Resolve.

Unfortunately, some DAWs cannot handle Virtual Instruments without any MIDI input, as is the case with Ableton Live which will not load the plugin. We will strive to resolve this issue in a future update.
