A sampler/cd/turntable/cassette deck can make any noise in existence,
but only because it _records_ other sounds. If you're talking about
synthesized sound, then I disagree. I've yet to hear any
computer-synthesized sound that comes close to the richness of timbre
of most acoustic instruments and sounds in general. I believe it has to
do with the natural chaos of transient material and unpredictability of
partials over time occuring in a natural setting, but... I'm in over my
head. You guys and gals will surely correct my pop acoustics.
