[LAU] Noise generation plugin recommendations?

I'm making all my music on a modular, but often bring in "noisy" samples
that I generated or processed on my linux laptop. Obviously offline
rendering of "noisy" samples is not the same as a dynamically controlled
plugin in ardour or the like, and what I look for is not as much a static
noise spectrum/waveform as musically useful but noisy samples. With that in
mind here's a few strategies I had success with:

1) Databending non musical files, by forcing sox to interpret them as
audio. Works great with binary files (/usr/bin is a goldmine) and requires
quite a bit of work afterwards to select the interesting portions of the
samples. The middle section for instance tends to be more or less white

2) Cecilia is always awesome.

3) http://www.websdr.org/ is a great source, takes some curating to get
something useful though.

Hope that is helpful.
