We show how a dressed lattice scheme can provide control over certain types of noise for atomic quantum gases in the lowest band of an optical lattice, removing the effects of global lattice amplitude noise to first order for particular choices of the dressing field parameters. We investigate the nonequilibrium many-body dynamics of bosons and fermions induced by noise away from this parameter regime, and show how the same technique can reduce spatial disorder in projected lattice potentials.
