syMMys is an experiment in symmetry. pitch, rhythm, dynamics, waveforms, pretty much everything is structured symmetrically.

this is an attempt on my part to "break new ground" synthesis-wise. none of the components are new, but the overall result (hopefully) is, at least for some of the snaps/randomizations.

if you have any suggestions for improvements (particularly in the expressive realm), please share! :-)

this is excellent. i found that with a lot of sounds a simple half note melody was all that was needed for a whole piece. thank you much.

I've tried your rather inspired works before and have always appreciated them... I've especially appreciated your inclusion of a random button feature.... all synths with this feature automatically get extra credit in my book.... anyway, I usually wait until I have have a chance to play with a synth before I comment.... but judging from all of the rick scott synths that I've tried I'm sure it's another stellar effort... so I'm just basically saying hello and thanks for sharing your formitable skills and imagination on this website.... oh.... and I can't wait to try this one out and add it to my rick scott reaktor collection...thanks again... take care

phil: i don't think i understand what kind of feature you are asking for. right now, you can "switch" between saved snaps and random patches simply by selecting the desired snap in the snapshot list and then clicking on the randomize button. so what, exactly, would you like it to do instead?

perhaps you should tailor a macro with the snapshot module to switch merge and randomise snaps

as a performer i would like to be able to switch from a saved snap to randomised version with more subtle randomisation, to a version with over the top randomisation and then back to the original snap version. what do you think rick?
