complex random cv from midi

Post by vqlk » Tue Jun 09, 2020 11:14 pm

how would you recommend going about this? i have an ultra random, which is fun and accessible even tho its output names are painfully named, but i may want more random, and random controlling random, etc. what is a cheap and elegant solution for manipulating midi signals randomly, live. all i have is a pc [and euroroack]

Pure Data is free and can manipulate or generate random MIDI data.

additionally Reaper has fantastic track automation and randomization options which can also be routed to MIDI CC

yes - this should be possible BUT:
for multiple reasons I do not pack a DIN to 3.5mm adaptor with the module! You could use one of any brand (KORG, Arturia whatever)

I'm only just getting in to it but for MIDI, it seems that you'd have a hard time finding something more capable than Loomer Architect. People have already created a bunch of objects focusing on various chaotic models which you can use and do what you want with.
