What’s smoother a straight 6 or a V8?

I’ve always wondered whether an inline 6 or a v8 would have better smoothness. In this case we would be talking about crossplane v8’s. The straight 6 has the natural balance but from my understanding the v8 can also be balanced if the appropriate counterweights are used on the crankshaft. But the v8 has more cylinders so the firing pulses overlap more and should be “smoother” in that respect. Wondering if anybody knows any further info on this subject. Thanks
