Trigger <randomize> with midi cc# ???
« on: January 14, 2019, 06:20:55 AM »
Is it possible to trigger the randomize function remotely, using midi cc# ?

I am controlling a lot on the preenfm2 with my Nektar midi keyboard, but would love to be able to trigger "randomize" as well.

Thank you.

Not sure what you try to do.
Triggering a new random value when one midi CC# change ?
No that's not possible.
You can use some CC (1, 2, 115, 116, 117, 118) to control a matrix multiplier where the source is a LFO with a random shape.
I think that would be the closer solution.

Are you talking about the menu to create random patches?

Thanks for answering my question. Your idea about using the random LFO values to randomize various chosen parameters: that's a good idea, I will try that.

I also am using the software Max, with which I can send a burst of random values to selected CC#s on the Preen, more or less duplicating the action of Randomize menu.
