Noizefield has released Warrior, a freeware virtual synthesizer plugin designed for “heavy” electronic music styles like Dubstep, Drum n Bass, Hardstyle, and Techno.
Warrior is yet another freeware synthesizer by Noizefield, following the previously released Mini Bounce, Bounce, Splash, and others. Most of these virtual instruments follow a similar formula, both in terms of functionality and their control layout.
That’s not to say that Noizefield synthesizers are bad plugins. Not at all. In most cases, they come with a decent selection of presets and, as such, offer some value to producers who need quick access to production-ready synth sounds. They’re also relatively easy to program, so beginners can learn more about synthesis by editing the available presets.
As for Warrior, it’s a fun plugin to try if you need a quick source of aggressive EDM sounds.
Noizefield’s latest virtual instrument features three oscillators and one noise generator, two multi-mode filters, one vowel filter, three LFO modules, and three AHDSR envelopes, eight-voice unison, and a set of built-in effects. Two of the oscillators use wavetables, whereas the third allows the user to edit the waveform shape.
The instrument comes with two skins (light and dark), and 32 presets designed for EDM production. And that’s pretty much it. You’re getting a relatively simple virtual instrument that you can fire up in your DAW and play some EDM sounds.
