Rando, A Simple Inspirational Randomizing Sampler


You can rediscover your forgotten sounds with Rando, a simple sampler plugin that lays a random selection across your MIDI keyboard or piano roll.

Perhaps, many of us have huge sample collections, but how many of these sounds do you actually use? Not many, reckons software developer MonkeyC, which is why it has released Rando, a new lightweight sampler plugin that’s designed to bring you back to sounds that you would forgotten you even had.

The idea is simple: you point Rando at any or all of your sample folders and then let it assign a random selection to notes on your MIDI keyboard and in your piano roll. You can narrow down your selections by text, type and category, but as a rule, unpredictability is something that this plugin revels in.

The good news is that tonal samples are automatically tuned and rhythmic ones timestretched to tempo. There are basic sampler editing functions, a chromatic mode that pitches a sound across the keyboard, and a Life control that adds analogue-style drift.

You also have six global effects to play with – filter, chorus, distortion, crush, delay and reverb – and there’s a sequencer section with a randomisation function that will automatically generate patterns.

Available now for PC and Mac, Rando runs in VST/AU/AAX formats and has an introductory price of $49. This will apply until 2 April, after which it will rise to $69.

Auto Fills, New App Creates Unique Drum Fills Automatically


Developer Cem Olcay let us know that he has released a new iOS and macOS/Apple Silicon app, Auto Fills, designed specifically for generating unique drum fills.

“Auto Fills is a random MIDI generator for creating drum fills. You can generate drum fills for your drum synth apps or hardware quickly and let it roll every once in a while. It works on iOS and Apple Silicon.”

It works as an Audio Unit AUv3 plugin, with supported host apps, such as AUM, Loopy Pro, Logic Pro, Cubasis, Nanostudio, apeMatrix etc.

In Auto Fills, you are working with a drum kit. You can either create the kit by adding drum parts and assigning them MIDI notes/channels yourself, or you can select a kit template from the settings menu for an app or hardware for quick setup.

In Kit mode, you can assign a probability value to each drum part.

In Velocity mode, you can assign a velocity to each drum part, and you can also introduce velocity variety for them.

In Duration mode, you can set the drum fill length as well as the waiting time before and/or after the drum fill, in beats or bars.

If you’ve set “wait before the fill” and/or “wait after the fill” durations in the Duration mode, the drum fill won’t be played during the waiting periods.

An example of Auto Fills in action:

GForce Introduces OB-EZ Simply Majestic Virtual Instrument


GForce OB-EZ packs 8 voices of fat Oberheim goodness into a simple plugin instrument.

GForce OB-E has received praise for being a spot-on software emulation of the Oberheim 8 Voice, but its multi-module architecture might feel a little daunting to those who just want great sounds, fast. And so now GForce has released OB-EZ, a stripped-back version of the plugin that promises to combine carefully-selected presets with a streamlined control set.

It was created for producers who want to inject that thick, organic and majestic sound in their tracks quickly with a new streamlined workflow.

The 260+ patches that come with OB-EZ are designed to have just as much fatness and punch as those that are supplied with the OB-E. The difference is that they’re more easily tweakable.

Thanks to their unique octaphonic architecture, not many synths sound as fat as these in the software domain.

The idea here is to give you just the ‘essential’ parameters – cutoff, resonance, envelopes, tuning, portamento, delay and reverb, for example. Everything you need and nothing you don’t, basically. A Vintage knob enables you to dial in unpredictable analogue imperfections, there are panning modes for wide soundscapes, and vibrato for some characteristic wobble.

The presets cover everything from classic polysynth sounds to “mega octaphonic pads”, unison basses and recreations of tones you’ve heard on hit records. The UI is resizable, and MIDI mapping is supported.

OB-EZ is available now for the introductory price of £24.99, rising to £49.99 in due course (existing OB-E owners should note that they get it for free, and the ability to import OB-EZ presets into OB-E is on the way). It runs on PC and Mac as standalone application and in VST/AU/AAX plugin formats. Find out more on the GForce Software website.
