All plugins have been moved to Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/noisebud
You can get the plugins here for a one-time donation. However, joining Patreon is recommended, even if you only stay for a month ($5). But, if you do not want anything to do with Patreon but still want to use the latest version of a plugin, read on. I will still consider your money as a donation supporting the further development of Noisebud plugins. You do not buy a plugin; You donate about 30 minutes of development time.
If you get a plugin here rather than from Patreon, the policy for updates looks like this (similar to how things were before Patreon):
If you are new to Noisebud plugins:
- Updates within a year from your donation comes free.
- After a year, an update will be $5 (to cover administrational costs).
If you donated for a plugin before and want an update:
- Contact me for a personal discount code: email@example.com
To sum it up
In most cases, you will be better off hop on and hopping off the Patreon campaign, even if you only use one of my plugins. The total for a lifetime of updates probably set you back about $30 – $50, maybe less if you skip the minor updates. And that will give you all my plugins.
We created NoLias as a quick way to determine if there’s a risk of aliasing distortion created in a plugin chain. It doesn’t use any high-tech rocket science to analyze the signal. All it does is send out a customized sine wave to let your ears do the heavy lifting. Sometimes, the no-frills solution does the job better than any other approach.
When NoLias play its customized sine sweep, you’ll immediately hear if the sine signal folds down above the Nyquist frequency and start to “mirror” itself back into the audible spectrum (see the video for an example).
The plugin consists of an on/off switch, level control for the sine sweep, and a simple spectrum analyzer. The analyzer doesn’t have a function, it’s just there because it looks cute. In “off” mode, NoLias passes the signal from the input to the output untouched. When turned on, it starts to play the sweep.
How to use:
- Put it as the first plugin in your effect chain.
- Turn on the sweep.
- If you hear a clean sine sweep you can stop here. If you hear aliasing as the sweep gets closer to 20kHz, continue to step 4.
- Start bypassing plugins. If it goes away when you bypass a plugin, you’ve found the culprit.
There are a few ways to get rid of aliasing.
- Check if the plugin has built-in oversampling and turn that on.
- Upsample the project (start by doubling the sample rate).
- Skip the plugin or use a similar plugin
