PATCH & TWEAK Basic Concept 3: Noise

Some sounds we use in synthesis don’t have a distinct pitch. These are useful for creating natural sounds like wind and surf, breath noises to mix into instrument and vocal sounds, and for some percussion sounds. In this video, Chris explores a variety of “colors” of noise and explains their uses.

Color of noise are also explained on page 17 of Patch & Tweak; a good selection of noise modules are shown on pages 118 & 119. Get PATCH & TWEAK here.
