Not sure why they couldn't make it happen if it's for technical reasons. Anybody know? It would just be additional programming in a new OS, right? This isn't a case like routing limitations because of hardware design or reaching processor limits, correct?
It would be a shame if we're limited to max4live solutions, as these days I mainly use Rytm on the couch when I can't be arsed to boot up the computer after using one all day at work.
I think the mad scientists could come up with something brilliant for randomization features. If it's a philosophical reason, then okay, that's Elektron's prerogative. But I feel they would be missing out on a lot of fun.
Does anyone know if Elektron has ever spoken about randomization?
I do have the feeling there are some Elektron users who view things like randomization as cheating or something (and live acoustic drummers would laugh their asses off at this, I'm sure). But just because it's there, doesn't mean you have to use it. I feel like once you take a step into the wilderness of using Trig conditions, why not go all in and cook up some nifty randomization features for Rytm patterns, tracks, machine parameters, etc.? Besides, most people that use randomization on patterns always tweak the living hell out of it afterwards anyways. It's just a fun starting point and inspiration tool. I know I always enjoyed it back in the day using Reason's Redrum.
