Using the Ultrabeat Noise Generator

The Ultrabeat noise generator offers extensive features, enabling the creation of a wide range of percussive sounds and sound elements. The noise generator also has its own filter—which functions independently of the main Ultrabeat Filter, although this can also be used on the overall sound.

Technically, a noise signal contains all tonal frequencies, at a more or less equal volume level. As all frequencies in the spectrum are audible, it makes it difficult for human beings to isolate, and therefore discern, any tonality (pitch) in a noise signal. Despite this, or as a direct result of it, noise is an indispensable ingredient when creating drum sounds.
