Great for when you're stuck.
A random patch can reinvigorate when you're feeling creatively stale.
One tip: be ready to record the sound into an audio track in case you can't get back to it. lol.
Though you can just pull up sounds by name also.
Well done, and very clever. Also, the synth sounds are good, even beyond the extra feature of "rolling the dice" to get a sound.Read more
