Noise Station v1.21
A downloadable tool for Windows
Noise Station is a music tracker/sequencer inspired by Amiga sample-trackers. The sounds are created using 'engines' - boxes which create or process sounds. You can line these up to create complex sounds.
Noise Station was first released in 2001 for Windows 98. It still works, just, on modern computers, but the display can be a bit ropey, so some of the icons might be cut-off or hard to click. Ignore these visual aspects and you should be able to use it exactly as I did.
I used this software to create two or three albums of work, including the first version of The Spiral Staircase, some of The Flatspace Soundtrack, and many early game themes like the theme to Radioactive.
I've included three example Songs: the music to my Steam game Radioactive , the original (unused) theme to The Heart of Aorkhan, and the theme to PC game Overlander.
This can be powerful software when you can learn how to use it, though its somewhat ancient display can hamper its utility (it works best on a small and non-widescreen monitor). It has a unique, somewhat tinny, high frequency sound at times, and supports some unusual effects like Oscillator Synchronisation.
Noise Station was published as a boxed product in the first decade of the century. This version, v1.21, was updated in May 2019, and is now free to use.
