midi learn

The MIDI mapping table enables you to use up to 8 MIDI CCs, pitch bend or aftertouch messages from any external controller in order to control elements inside the Noisy user interface. The MIDI mapping is kept globally and isn’t changed when switching through presets.

To make use of Noisy’s clever pre-wired macro system, it is recommended to map at least the Expression Module’s continuous control for layer 1 and layer 2 to your hardware MIDI controller. You could map those to any MIDI control element. Popular choices would be your mod wheel (CC1) or the aftertouch, if your keyboard supports it.

For convenient mapping, click on the LEARN button and move the hardware element that you want to assign. You can adapt the range of the parameter by changing the minimum and maximum values. You could also invert the behaviour by inputting a minimum value higher than the maximum value (e.g. 127 to 0 instead of 0 to 127).

preset folder

Opens the preset folder in Explorer or Finder. The folder structure inside the subfolders ‘MainPresets’ and ‘LayerPresets’ will be reflected in Noisy’s dropdown preset lists for the Main presets and Layer presets respectively. 

windows size

Allows to resize the GUI of Noisy to match your screen.

multithread (beta)

Enabling multithreading distributes the processing of Noisy’s voices across different cores of your CPU. On most modern CPUs, activating this allocation significantly improves the efficiency when playing several notes at the same time.

However, please leave this option deactivated should you encounter any issues like crackling on your specific machine. 

Note: This parameter is not saved globally, so it needs to be set separately for every Noisy instance that you load.
