Noizefield Releases Warrior – Free Virtual Analog Synthesizer

17

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.

However, if you’re an experienced sound designer looking for a freeware synth that will blow you away, be sure to check out Surge and the recently released Vital by Matt Tytel.

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.

Please note that you’ll need to sign up for a free Noizefield user account to access the download link. A valid email address is required for registration purposes.

Warrior is available in VST plugin format for digital audio workstations on Windows. Both 32-bit and 64-bit plugin hosts are supported.

  1. Hi Tomislav,

    “Noizefield Releases Warrior – Free Virtual Analog Synthesizer”

    what makes it “analog”? It’s just a plugin digital synth.

      I used “virtual analog” since it’s basically a subtractive synth with wavetable oscillators. But you’re right, maybe I could put “wavetable” or “digital” in the title instead.

          Hey, thanks for reading BPB. Also, don’t worry too much about analog vs digital (I know I did back when I was learning about music production). Experiment with the tools you have available and try to get the best sound possible out of those (and according to your own taste).

      The key word here is “virtual”. It’s possible that Warrior’s developer aimed at creating a plugin which did not sound digital, harsh with more gentle, round envelope curves and very little or no aliasing. The latter is what usually makes a big difference. Anyway that’s what I get from these “virtual analog” descriptions.
      I remember reading one time about Ichiro Toda Synth1, which is a classic, also “virtual analog”. Reviewer mentioned that he definitely heard some aliasing and artifacts in higher registers when playing Synth1. Whoever tried it may probably agree that it has that analog character. I personally never encountered any aliasing or similar side effects when using it.

      • I’ll get a bit out of topic but today digital technology gives us a lot of new opportunities. As Andrew Scheps also says, analogue saturation is great. Like you mix on a desk and it glues them together. He says like free eq and compression. But with computer, we can decide when to apply saturation and using clean or dirty plugins. Digital’s benefits are enormous. I think some people just advertise their plugins as analogue 1- because it sounds cool. Like wow, something analogue. and there is a hype going on with that. I also like the flexibility of digital audio processing. And at the end, no one really cares if you mixed a song on a computer or analogue desk. That’s also what Andrew Scheps says.

        I also use analogue emulated plugins. I have a lot of waves plugins. Brainworx ssl 4000e console too. Because sometimes they sound better than stock compressors The most important thing I believe is what we create. If it makes something better, then it’s not important how did you mix that song

  2. Tip on how to get free samples:
    I wanna share my expiences here from past 2 days: I downloaded the 2 soundpacks from W.A with free codes from here, that was here in discussion somewhere. After that i recieved the emails -you know- rate us, so i rate everything 5 stars… wtf? …i recieved 3rd mail :D “Invitation to our secret vault” :D with code.
    After that theres some 23 files to download, the soundpacks and 2 “one-knob” compressors, no sensation – i cant tell whitch is free on W.A anyway or circulate as free/pay and whitch cost something. I dont post anything, sorry, its this company thing. But if i could get it then you do too.

  4. Call Warrior whatever type of synth you want. It has some decent bass sounds and a few good presets. A good synth to start a basic midi bass track before finding the right sound later.

  5. Noizefield seems like a good dude who develops some decent software and gives it away for free, so I mean no offense by my comment….but this synth is just a generic Synthmaker plugin. In 2020, those are a dime-a-dozen. Now, if you don’t have a lot of VST synths then this might be a good addition to your arsenal…but I have hundreds of synths that I’ve acquired over the last 18 years and I just don’t have room for another generic Synthmaker synth.
