This is just an idea that hit me while on the bus and I had rush home to try it out. It's basically a grain cloud sampler with randomizable parameters. An LFO (PositionModulator) controls the playback position (alternately, click "manual control" to control position w/ a slider). Set the LFO speed to multiples of 4 to keep it "on beat" (speed changes kick after a bar or two). It also has MIDI input so you can play it w/ a keyboard (turn "MIDI" button on).

The sampler runs into four parallel fx (slimed down versions from "fastfx" -not my creations). Another LFO (Traffiker) controls the signal output from the four fx.

I've preloaded some guitar strum samples (hence the name) in for your listening pleasure. Try loading in some beats for crazy drumming styles or pad loops for ambient soundscapes. Thanks for all the encouragement, please enjoy!

p.s. for an explanation of the randomizers, please see the info for my other ensemble "Delivery"
