Random parameters

Topic starter  

Currently we have randomization die for presets in the top right.  Would be neat to randomize knobs and other parameters within the presets to be able to just keep hitting it to come up with infinite types of sounds.  Then save and name them to quickly expand types and numbers of presets in a library if that makes sense.  Many other plugins have this feature (ie most of Sample Logics).  Maybe add something next to the die like 3 dots to open a randomization menu to choose what you'd like to try randomizing or changing.  Might be fun to try this in Unify.  Couldn't imagine being able to randomize all parameters from all libraries loaded to see what you could get.

Also, this would make it easier for the patch creators of new libraries to quickly create presets in volume rather than having to painstakingly spend an entire night making 10 patches for example.

This has been requested many times, and is on the long-term to-do list.

True randomization of all parameters (over their full ranges) is likely to yield more rubbish than useful sounds. I'm open to suggestions for better randomization methods.

It is entirely possible to randomize parameters, including macros, as follows.
download MidiSimpleLFO (which you can find in the freeware pack "PIZ MIDI plugins").
It's a MIDI LFO that has 2 waveform options: RANDOM SLOW and RANDOM FAST.
set the MidiSimpleLFO before your VST, then adjust the parameters of the MidiSimpleLFO (waveform, CC, frequency, etc.).
use as many instances of MidiSimpleLFO as you want to randomize your parameters.
this Midi LFO is very powerful.
Additionally, you can use a Unify embedded INST1 and then sending random parameters to all macros .
then save your template et VOILA.
