Hi all I'm new of this newsgroup.
I read your posts from a bit and i found them very interesting.
I want to ask.. Do u know a way to obtain on guitar a distortion like white
A distortion similar to one produced from a synth, or a radio. I've heard of
it on some Nine Inch Nails cds.
White noise is the sound of all frequencies in the audible range having
the same intensity. Therefore, there can be no pitch content in white
noise. Having a guitar sound or distortion made up of white noise means
you would lose any sense of notes....it would just be pure noise
sounding exactly the same perhaps with some rhythmic variation.
That being said, perhaps you could mix in some white noise to the sound
of your guitar (already distorted or not). I guess this is the way
those white noise knobs on old synths work. Probably the easiest way to
do this would be to set up a white noise generator that is controlled by
a gate. The key input to the gate would be the guitar signal which
would only open the gate to the white noise when the guitar is playing.
You could mix the level of the white noise and the controls on the
gate to taste.

Just like fighting fire with fire, you can combat noise with noise. White noise, sound frequencies spread equally across a given bandwidth, can be used to block out everyday sounds.
