Pink Noise

Random noise with equal energy per octave. Our ears perceive this as sounding relatively “flat” in frequency response (since pink noise is based on octaves rather than individual frequencies, there is no increase in energy in the high octaves). Because of this, and because Real Time Analyzers (RTA) tend to look at octave or 1/3 octave ranges, pink noise is very useful for measuring the frequency response of audio equipment, as well as for determining room response for sound reinforcement applications.
