TAL: NoiseMaker

A free analogue-styled synth plugin.


2 November 2023

TAL Software is a small Swiss company founded in the early 2000s. TAL (Togu Audio Line) creates high quality instruments and effects with user-friendly interfaces, and has reasonable — often free — pricing structures. The vintage synth emulations are accurate and have an authentic feel which has lead to TAL Software being frequently name-dropped in interviews with popular producers and musicians.

The TAL NoiseMaker is a great sounding virtual analogue synthesizer that has low CPU requirements. With chorus, bitcrush, reverb, and delay in the effects section; the easily editable filter graph; and its convincing analogue voicing; this plugin serves as an extremely versatile virtual instrument.
