Noises off

Computer Music - - Reviews -

At the bot­tom of the in­ter­face are five global func­tion but­tons (in­clud­ing By­pass) and a pop-down panel con­tain­ing con­trols for a cou­ple of them.

Ac­ti­vat­ing Dis­tor­tion sim­u­lates the dis­tor­tion gen­er­ated by the cur­rent de­vice as if the in­put sig­nal was ar­riv­ing at the SPL set us­ing the Dis­tor­tion slider in Edit mode.

Noise mixes one of 14 sam­pled real-world am­bi­ence noise loops in – Street, Park, Mall, Sub­way, etc – for ‘en­vi­ron­men­tal’ au­di­tion­ing. The Noise level is ad­justable down to -30dB, and, cru­cially, it’s ap­pro­pri­ately fil­tered when used with the head­phone mod­els.

The Mono but­ton switches the out­put to mono­phonic, based on the left or right chan­nel, or both, or swaps left and right, de­pend­ing on the set­ting in the Chan­nel Mode menu.

Lastly, click­ing Auto sets the plugin cy­cling through the 12 loaded mod­els at a step rate of 1-12 sec­onds, as set by the Time knob.
