VHS Noise Generator is a unique tool that features 26 distinct background noises, each one created using an antiquated VCR and a different tape.

Every noise in the collection encapsulates the sound produced during the initial moments of silence after a tape is inserted and played.

This includes all the characteristic clicks, pops, and glitches that are synonymous with this vintage technology.


  • 26 VHS background noises.
  • 4 effects: distortion, delay, chorus, and reverb.
  • Amplitude ADSR.
  • Multi-LFO.
  • Highpass/Lowpass filter.
  • Amplitude range controls.
  • 3 voice modes: polyphonic, monophonic, and legato.
Made with Maize Sampler

Not a melodic or rhythmic instrument in the traditional sense but that's not the purpose of this plugin. It's pretty cool if you're looking to make some lo-fi stuff or need to recreate the imperfections of a VHS tape for sound design purposes. My only complaint is each preset has the same sound mapped to every key-it seems to me it might be useful in a future update to include a preset where every different sound is mapped to a different key so they can all be accessed simultaneously. There are 26 different presets so it should be possible- please make it happen SampleScience, you guys rule.

Thank you for your review. In the latest version, each sound can be pitched up or down.
