rr is a new Max Package consisting of a small collection of patchers designed to facilitate the generation of sequences of MIDI notes and control change messages characterized by various degrees of randomization and/or by transitions between defined start and end states.

The package consists of 3 'objects':

  • rr.rampr : provides a means of quickly and flexibly generating accelerating or decelerating sequences ('ramps') of MIDI notes, alongside optional control change messages for concurrent gradual transitions from one parameter state to another.

  • rr.randomrampr : provides a means of generating SEQUENCES of accelerating or decelerating ramps of MIDI note and control change messages, varying their characteristics at random within defined limits.

  • rr.randomizr : provides a means of continuously generating MIDI notes and optional control change messages at random, within defined limits, with options to 'lock' parameters to vary in proportion with one another.

Here's a brief introduction to what the package can do:
