I’m working on creating a digital “modular” synth using as many standard max objects as possible. A few questions have come up. What would the dB per octave be for [onepole~] and [svf~]? I seem to think that they are 6dB and 12dB respectively but I’m not sure. How would obtaining larger amounts? If I plugged three [svf~] into each other, and assuming it is 12dB per octave, would the third one be outputting 48dB per octave or 36dB per octave (in other words, does each additional filter double the previous or add another 12?)

Also I’m looking to obtain red and blue noise so I can make noise blends. I don’t want to use anything like litter power so could I just get this by sticking a [noise~] through a lowpass for red noise and a highpass for white noise? What cutoff would I set the filters at? Wikipedia says blue noise is filtered 3dB per octave, but I know no max filter that does that amount, so is this method useless? Is red noise just another name for pink noise? If so, is there any sort of signal math I can do to the output of [pink~] to convert it to blue noise?

Sorry about there being so many small questions, I tried to research everything to the best of my abilities.
