Does a pedal exist that produces white noise? I've been able to get some with my big muff or even my bass overdrive, but they sound way too distorted. I don't want much of the guitar's original signal to be heard, just white noise with chords underneath. I've been thinking that some combination of delay/fuzz would work, but I would still have a lot of the note sounds coming out...white noise is supposed to be pretty steady, correct?

That's pretty close to what I'm going for. Oddly enough it has white noise in the title..

I'm not sure if white noise is the correct term, so sorry if I'm wrong.

I can get a looper to make that noise by overdubbing several times. It's something to be avoided IMO. I definatly don't get that band.

Download an mp3 of white noise and run it into your amp.

Put a mic up to a radio set between two stations. There, now you have white noise.

I don't think that's white noise at all, I think it's just a synth playing high register notes.

The guy from that band only uses guitars, no synths.

Thanks for the link, I'll be sure to check it out more in depth when I get on a computer.

Does he recreate it live? Without anything external running into the PA?

Check out the Shin Ei Hurricane Siren. It has 4 modes: wah, volume, surf and tornado. Wah and volume are just your standard wah wah and volume, only reversed (toe up full volume/wah, toe down no signal/bassy wah). The other two modes were white noise generators. Surf would use the pedal to fade in the white noise, and tornado had a set level of white noise, while the pedal adjusted the tone of it.

Here's a video of it. The demoer gets to using it around 2:00, starts getting to the freaky stuff around 4:00 at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf-0qO87XFE

I'm pretty sure he recreates it live, the videos I've seen on youtube have been pretty close.. His set-up seems pretty minimalistic from what I've found online. It's just a fuzz pedal, overdrive, digitech PDS8000, midiverb and a quadraverb.

Another example that I just remembered is this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nRTNXOgKIY

This one is a lot less effect-driven...could part of it be the recording method? I think the guy from astrobrite records into a tascam cassette recorder, and the my bloody valentine song I just posted is from the 80s so I'm guessing it's through some sort of analogue recording thing.

I really liked that Shin Ei demo, I'll have to keep an eye out for one.

A lot of delay can add a background layer of noise.

Run a Big Muff with either a dying 9v battery or a variable power supply in an amp with ****ed tubes and a speaker cone that's torn to shreds.
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.
