Built for the KVR Developer Challenge 2007, The Element of Surprise is a fun little freeware synth that is designed for one purpose only... to make really cool randomly generated sounds for fast inspiration and experiments in spontaneous song writing. The interface is simple, but under the hood there is a full synth with multiple oscillators, filters, various types of modulation, and effects, all optimized to provide a wide variety of usable randomly generated sounds.
This plugin is excellent for when you need that quick jolt of inspiration or energy in your productions, or if you just wanna use some randomized sounds and make a beat around it. Due to its simplicity, it's very good for a lot of genres from Trap to Drum and Bass.
All the sounds will vary so after a while you won't just get little variations on one preset which is very helpful if you like the random chance style plugins get this.
You can also save the patches which are hella neat.Read Review
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 Review
