random generator?

Is there any way to generate randomly channels/samples inside a pattern or random patterns in a playlist?
Theoritically there is an infinite number of random things you can do but each persons mind favors a specific way of diong things, even at random.

Thats why i want something that can generate things randomly, is there a way i can do that?
P.s. i dont want a "melody generator"

Do i have to make a macro or something for this?

Re: random generator?

Check out follow actions in Ableton. You put a bunch of clips in one channel and let them play random. Don't think FL Studio has something similar.

Yeah, also Max or PureData (free) if you're into that.

I like generative (and random) stuff, but I don't use FL Studio (I use Buzz). However, check out xoxos' midi VSTs (freeware and awesome):

Yeah, I don't really understand what you're asking. Do you want a bunch of samples to play randomly? Check out Soundborb.

Reaktor can do this quite easily.

I've been looking and looking for these right here. Couldn't, for the life of me, remember what they were called or who made them.

Even ran a search of your posts.

You are welcome! Happy tweaking.

(for those who can't get them to work: just remember that they are midi plugins, sending midi, not audio. Check the midi routing, send and recieve, etc.)

technically he said Reaktor *can* do this (and surely it can) not that he knew of a Reaktor ensemble that does it

using a random number generator to trigger sample selection would be one way to go about building something like that. This device solves *part* of that equation: [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Sorry man I wasn't thinking of a specific device more like building a unit from scratch.
If you want to just have some fun with a device I would pick travelizer. That thing is sweet.
Sine beats is pretty awesome too.

Re: random generator?

theoretically you could do this in ableton

You would set a drum rack, fill it with all your snares. Add a random midi unit before it so that whatever midi you input gets randomly assigned and plays a randomly selected sample.

Then you would do the same thing with kicks, and another for hats, etc etc

Re: random generator?

Looks like someone here made a device that does just this:

Maybe.

I haven't used it yet so I can't say for sure, but maybe, or something close.

It's a max patch though.

Not sure if it does the thing zaroukos is asking about, but I'd be happy to make a standalone version if someone wants to try it out.

True that. Awesome plugins (all of them).
I even like his (Rurik's) BreathCube. Well, maybe...just a little bit.

You dump a bunch of wav files in to it, it loads them in to a list, you click and drag on a number box and it plays a random file from the list at that speed (the number in the box). It's good for making glitchy bursts and sprays of sound.
