Device Overview

Name/Version: Miditax 1.1
Author: dedbird  
Description: Miditax is just a simple random midi reduction device that was hacked together using parts nicked from a couple of devices made by people that actually know what they're doing.
It's pretty useful tho, stick it after an arpeggiator and set the amount of taxation about halfway and it creates some nice note stealing. Or after a hi hat playing 32nds etc.

Updated with the fix kindly donated by Prebentious, I have yet to get my head around exactly what you did in the patcher but it works well now. Thanks muchly.

Comments

One thing I noticed about your patch is that it treats note ons and note offs the same. This might not matter too much with drums, but you don't want a synth pattern to get a hung note. I added on a section that splits it up into two streams and lets the note off pass through. The note ons get processed like normal.
Here it is:

Thanks for the comment and yes, that would be a huge improvement. I've opened the code you posted but can't see what you altered, what did you change?

YES- usefull live tool!
I addet a "NOTE THRU" Function that bypasses the random for one note... so everything except kickdrum will be randomed...
