Device Details


Name | Version: Random Note Delay 1.1
Author: happytosh
Device Type: MIDI Effect
Description: Simple device that delays up to 32 notes at once, randomly from 0 to 127 milliseconds.

Useful for realtime de-quantisation:

- When you are using Repeat on Push
- When you are using the Arpeggiator
- If you want to loosen up quantisation in MIDI-clips.

If you are still using my old "Random Midi delay" please delete it! This does the same thing but has been completely rebuilt and cleaned up :)

Hi there,

does this work with push 2? Sounds rad...
hey! yes it works with Push 2. Works with all MIDI in fact!
Hey, thanks for this really useful and simple device! I'm having some problems with it ever since I upgraded to High Sierra though (I think...not sure if it's related...). Every time I do a render, the device stops outputting notes (so no output for that track on the render and no output after that). I have to load the device again for it to work again. Would it be possible to fix this? :)

really useful thanks
So good! Thankyou
This is a genius device! Thank you! However it seems to have a max of around 8 voices?
Would be nice if it went to 16 or 32 voices max
Also there seems to be a problem when adding notes on top of a chord. For instance playing a chord and then adding notes while the chord is being held
I just tested the one I've got here and it seems to be doing max 16 notes. Should be doing 32. I'm not doing Max these days, but I'll upload the one I have in case the one here is outdated.

Also make sure the instrument you are using is set to a higher number of voices than 8!

Many are default at 6, like Operator and Sampler.
Thanks for making this, it looks awesome! Unfortunately, it seems to be having some bug - it's hard to say exactly what it is, but after playing a sequence of chords, the third chord ends up sometimes only playing the bass note. This only happens with ms delays of not 0. The progression plays fine without this before it. Any help (or alternative suggestions) would be appreciated!
Actually, it even happens with a ms delay of 0.
I may have figured it out - I'm not quite sure why, but if I add a slight break between the chords in the MIDI progression, it seems to work fine. But without this device on, it plays fine even when they're overlapping, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the number of voices on my instrument (Arturia Piano V2).
Hey that's an interesting bug!
I tried here with Arturia Piano v2 as well and i don't have this issue my end, so i don't know what could be causing it sorry!

I updated the file here now if you want to make sure you have the same version I've got.
