Let us consider that source of colored noise with which we are most
familiar: The human voice. Efforts to realistically simulate a human
voice have not been very successful. The most successful approach has
been the ransom note approach, merging together a lot of small clips of
an actual human voice.
A software simulated raw physical noise source would have to run
hundreds of thousands times faster.
