A friend of mine told me that it is important to use white noise in a song. Is this true? I've noticed on some of the archived tracks that the producer has added 16th notes of small hi-hat noise to the track by enabling all the Redrum keys down the bottom. But the Producer has also used open and closed hihats and seems to use the white noise as a subliminal element. How important is white noise to a track?
Thanks for your responses.
