de la Mancha has released manic, an 8-slot random sample player where you decide the samples, but manic decides when to play them. Samples are triggered according to their probability, on a tempo sync pattern. Also allows for randomizing of volume, pitch, pan, delay, reverse and swing. You decide how much, but not when. You can loop the sequence, change sequence seed with MIDI keys and quantize the pitch randomizing for a more melodic sequence. Works well for random glitchy percussion, instant melodic sequences of multi-samples or total chaos.
manic is available as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows and it is free.
