Hello Paul and List,

Noise generator in Boss DR-55 may be what you are looking for.

The schematic of the noise generator part and some discussion in Japanese
are at:


Photo of the NG part is in my blog:


The distance between the two amplifiers seems to be an important 
parameter which adjusts positive feedback for a large gain.

Hope this helps,

Saitama, JAPAN
