Hi,
I searched through KVR and Google, but I can't find a sampler with integrated sequencer and randomizer which I want to use to play with percussion samples.
I currently slice a sample with DAW Sampler, and tried Reaktor's Polyplexor and Nod-E midi sequencers, but they are detached from the sampler and randomly push notes, so it's really hard to find a pattern that would be "listenable". Basically, it would be nice to have some control over the randomizer.
I've been recommended Geist2, but it seems to be a way over my needs. I also can't use Max for Live as I'm on Cubase.
I would appreciate any advice.

What do you want to randomize exactly ? Drum sounds ? One Sequencer line ? All sequencer lines (a pattern) ? Everything ?

Xils-Lab StiX can create random kits on the fly, but's it can be sample based drum sounds, or pure synthesis sounds (Analog/FM/AM/RM/Cross) or a blend of samples + synthesis.So maybe more that what you strictly need. anyway here's StiX creating drumkits (5mn/50 drumkits). You can also randomize sequencer lines, or whole patterns if you want btw. Also if you want to use your customs samples, you'll have to import them into StiX first.

MDrummer comes to mind:

Sampling, synthesis, sequencing, randomization, and pretty much everything else...

Thanks everyone.
I think the winner here is Ableton. Stix and MDrummer are lacking or a lot of features and frustrating as hell (as well as Geist2).
Since I'm not an Ableton user I decided to go with Xfer Nerve.

Take a look at Liquid Rhythm if it's patterns you're after.
