We elucidate how the presence of noise may significantly interact with the synchronization mechanism of systems exhibiting frequency-locking. The response of these systems exhibits a rich variety of behaviors, such as resonances and anti-resonances which can be controlled by the intensity of noise. The transition between different locked regimes provokes the development of a multiple enhancement of the effective diffusion. This diffusion behavior is accompanied by a crest-like peak-splitting cascade when the distribution of the lockings is self-similar, as occurs in periodic systems that are able to exhibit a Devil's staircase sequence of frequency-lockings.
