Subtractive synthesis is a powerful tool.

Starting with a broadband signal (noise, an impulse, sawtooth, whatever,) and then cutting away parts of the spectrum is like the sonic equivalent of carving a sculpture out of a solid block of marble. You start with material everywhere in equal thickness and proceed to chop bits off until what remains closely resembles what you want :-)
