Is all white noise created equal?
As a producer of trance, white noise is a major component in my production arsenal. I usually stick with ES2's white noise generator (Logic Pro 9 synth), and it works pretty well, but I've noticed that on the professional trance tracks, white noise has a better "sheen" than what I've been able to produce. It just sounds sexier.
Is this a result of better/higher-quality FX plugins (and superior EQing) being used? Or do some softsynths create better sounding white noise than others? And maybe it's not that the white noise being produced is better sounding, but just that it's more pliable within the synth.
What have your experiences been? Any white noise sound fuller and richer in some synths than others without any additional processing?
The answer might be a simple "no", but I'd like to hear thoughts on the matter. Thanks for input!
You can't fail if you never stop trying.
