Starter kit

Post by Boxe » Mon Aug 01, 2016 11:44 am

Hi,

I am looking to create noise using hardware. I have bought several pedals and now need a Device to generate noise. What has everyone else used? I have been told to look for a white or pink noise generator but have been unable to find one.

I am trying to use the Akai rhythm wolf at the moment but it is not ideal. Any recommendations for generators or pedals would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tim

What's your budget?

There are a range of noise sources in the world. I build one, but it's not a bottom barrel build and I know there are less expensive options out there (they just generally don't do as much).

Guitar and a drumstick, old mic, contact mic, buzzer?
I think trying to quantify music is one of the biggest wastes of time in the world, like discussing your favourite colour or deity or pizza topping. People should realise that and get on with their life.

Good suggestions, my budget is as cheap as possible so under a 100 pounds.

Yep, especially if it's a distorion, drive, fuzz or boost pedal. Just get the appropriate cable or adaptor.

Yeah, you can even cut just a cable and tape/secure the center wire to your body. Actual generators are not required (they can, however, be a joy to use).

A contact mic I guess but the wrong kind for convenient noise use since it has an xlr not 1/4" jack

That DS-1 should be a Death Metal, but otherwise, spot-on.

Learn to use the fuckin' search function, gawdamn. Do you think Merzbow went around asking this??? Do You think Masonna even cared about this? If it sound shitty you are in the right way.
Then do splits with famous peoples (Dead Body Collection) or ask famous people to mess with their sounds - taken from youtube - and call it a collab (Raven).

Do you think Mikkko Asspie uses more than a shitty sampler and a Monotron? It just doesn't matter.
Do drugs and fuck ears.
