Audio Noise Generator Schematic

Posted on Feb 6, 2014

This simple circuit generates both white and pin noise. Transistor Q1 is used as a zener diode. The normal base-emitter junction is reverse-biased and goes into zener breakdown at about 7 to 8 volts. The zener noise current from Q G flows into the base of Q2 such that an output of about 150 millivolts of white noise is available. To convert the wh

ite noise to pink, a filter is required which provides a 3 dB cut per octave as the frequency increases Since such a filter attenuates the noise considerably an amplifier is used to restore the output level. Transistor Q3 is this amplifier and the pink noise filter is connected as a feedback network, between collector and base in order to obtain the required characteristic by controlling the gain-versus-frequency of the transistor. The output of transistor Q3 is thus the pink noise required and is fed to the relevant output socket.
