Noise Station is music creation software.
A total virtual studio, you can use the program to create instruments and complete music tracks with no extra hardware or software.
Most of the music and sound effects for the games on this website was created using Noise Station v1.20 as well as three acclaimed albums of synth music on modulated.co.uk.
Very reliable, version 1.20 is the final release of version 1 of this well supported software.
Noise Station generates sound using the concept of engines. An engine is a component that creates or modifies sound in some way. You might have a sine wave generator engine, or a low pass filter, or a panning engine.
Engines can be applied per-instrument, per-track or per-song.
Songs are built from events, normally simply note events that trigger an instrument.
Special events can be used however to change the song speed, or the volume of the current instrument, track or song.
Notes are played on the PC keyboard and are programmed, not recorded in real time.
When the song is complete, a high qualtiy version can be calculated and rendered direct to hard disk. This allows even slow computers to produce very powerful audio effects.
Noise Station was designed as a total music creation system.
No MIDI keyboard is required.
