hi friends, this music game was posted on twitter by bubblegum octopus and i think it's really good and fun so im taking it from them and putting it here too :bigblush:

Okay so the idea is you're gonna wanna start with six random numbers from 1-128, and then find the corresponding sounds in the general midi list. These are the instruments for your new song :happytime: here's one of mine
Image

You can do this with your own selected set of samples as well, but so far i haven't personally rolled a sound from the list that wasn't baked into the DAW or easily replaced by something equivalent. If you are hurting for sounds, Here's a mixed bag of soundfonts devi blacksquares posted that i've found super useful.

Anyway happy song making let me know how it goes if you do it i hope it goes well!!!!!!!
