TAL's Juno 60 plugin is allready a massive plugin in my humble opinion. TAL TAL's Elektro is ok but for me it wasn't working that fast and I must sa I didn't liked the GUI. But now Elektro is rebuilt as Noizemaker (Elektro on steroids) and it blows me away! I really recommend it to anyone. From starter to pro, just put this in your VSTPlugins folder.
Positive Points: - It's free! - Its oscilators (fat juno60 oscs + more) - Self oscilating filters - Making Patches is very simple because of the simple, but nice, GUI - Very fast envelopes - Not very CPU hungry - 2 LFO's with a few interesting destinations
Negative Points: - More modulation options would be nice - Maybe a mod-matrix is welcome addition - Add the delay DUBIII as a Delay FX - The chorus (briliant juno 60 chorus) is on or off instead of blending it - The bitcrusher is not working that good for me and should have more control
Last of all I must say, Patrick did a very good job with this one. I hope we can expect lots of improvements (the negative points) with this one.
I've searched the web and can't find an answer so am posting here. Has anyone had a problem when using TAL Noisemaker as a VST instrument in a DAW - and not been able to change the track volume? I'm using Acid Pro 7 and the volume slider will not change the volume of the TAL plugin. I can move the DAW slider all the way to 0 and TAL still plays at same volume regardless. Kontact Player is responsive works fine. I've searched quite a bit on web but can't find much discussion of this so I'm guessing it's rare, but all I can find is somebody else on an Acid board saying they have a TAL plug that doesn't respond to volume either.
I'm having trouble importing .fxb banks into NoiseMaker v3.21. I'm using Reaper in Win7/64x and the error message says "This file is for a newer version of this effect". Any ideas if the problem is with Reaper or NoiseMaker?
I fell in love with this amazing, amazing synth a couple of years ago. It never stops surprising me. I've managed to produce some of the most beautiful instruments with this--way beyond arps and bass patches. It's used in nearly every track of my new album--more than any other instrument. Those fuzzy, eerie, melancholy leads...

Thanks TAL for making this thing. I can't tell you how inspiring it is to use.
Um, I guess you don't have to use the patch cables. I don't really like virtual patch cables but it's easier to visualize the routing. Noisemaker's LFOs AD and envelope editor are basically modular. MOD is not that much different in it's layout really.
