Absolutely extra awesome!!
Brilliant! Thank you for sharing.
I really like this. After opening this thing I was amazed at it's simplicity.

What make this device only look at the devices in the track where it sits? How does that work?

Very nice!
thanks for this GEM!!!!!!!!

exactly what i need for instant remix of sounds in my plugins!


thanks man!

been looking for something like this.
Perhaps in the future there will be a random breeder between sound presets A and B, like in reaktor. This produces more usable sounds than a random sound breeder.
Back in the days when i was working with buzz, Polac Vst Loader had a breed function, which was brilliant. I used it to make a lot of new presets. Been looking for this in ableton since i switched a few years ago.

cheers and tnx!
i will download this, could be very useful...
you da man!
cool 2.0 additions, thanks!
Great work - thank you! Very useful!

One thing - when using with a Effects Rack, it's only giving control over the Macros.
Nice work, you just made me lazier.
this is a gem,thanks
this is so useful! ableton's always needed this kind of simple function.. it'd be super cool to be able to have the values move smoothly when ya hit the random button... (maybe with some kind of line object)

anyway thanks a bunch!
a cool effect, thanks a lot !
Excellent patch, love it
Trying this in Ableton Live 8.2.2b1, and, unfortunately, it is not working. Will an update be available?

Seems it isn't working in 8.2.1 either.
this is one of the more useful plugins available. works like a charm for me: win7 ableton 8.2.5, last build of max5 as of jan2012...
btw, would be awesome for version 3 to have 'presets' where you could save various random sets and recall them later... or maybe there's another m4l patch that could work with this randomizer to do that?
For the next version it would be great to save presets and morph between them! Thanks for making this!
trying to use it and not working.
can you please send a short instructions how to connect and use.
Hanako. Please update your device device - it's on of the best. It's not working on Mac Live Version 8.2.8.
And that's a big tragedy for mankind.
Doesn't work in 8.3.4 neither.
I'd throw in a few bucks to get this back up and running if anyone is interested? Great device.
FYI. Live 9 comes with a really good device randomizer!
live 9 randomizer has a limit of 16 parameters...if this could map more than 16 please make a live 9 version :))
Does some one can explain how to select a device in device randomizer
Thanks o lot for your help
For those in need, I fixed this device to work with Live 9. You can find that here.

Would be great if Hanako could contact this thread and upload it again to this page so its all in one place.
This is lit dude!
A classic M4L device.
doesn't work anymore ableton 11
It does not work anymore on Live 11. Please update? It would be handy. :)
Hi, device is pretty nice - to work in Ableton 11 fix is relatively easy
1. Open it in Max device editor, exit presentation view, and go into js DeviceRandomizer (usually by double clicking)
2. in the source code at the beginning of functions device_name_observer and devices_observer add the following
if(randomizer == undefined){return;}
3. save under new name just in case
@PlatformFour tryed this but didn't work. Prob. doing something wrong tho.

be nice if this could get an update

Hi, I'm a student and would appreciate your time if you could answer some questions regarding Max MSP, I've made a form.

Thanks for your time in advance!
