Randomness is one of the main reasons I started programming my own
While it was the imp of the perverse that made me choose that Marley
bit at BEMF - I often use the many random functions in Kenaxis to
surprise myself. You can setup files from a chosen folder to play in
a random order at random times, hit one key and your files change
randomly, hit another key and all of your pitch and loop points
change randomly. You can also setup random processes so that things
are constantly changing on you in random but controlled ways.
Taming randomness and making it musical is one of my favorite
undertakings. For me it is a way to vary the static loop based
approach into something a bit more exciting - in particular when
using prerecorded sound files.
