ad.rndCandycaneColor
 Abstraction 

randomizes multislider colors Tired of modifying multislider colors according to your mood swings? Relieve yourself of control and generate new glorious greyish pastels every time you open the patch anew. 
alea
 Abstraction 

random based object A bang in the left inlet makes a random selection of a supply sent to right inlet before. Note that there is no repetition check of chosen elements. 
alea1/f

1/fnoise random number generator based on Clarke and Voss. Note that the slash (/) should be suppressed from the objectÕs name in MacOS X version otherwise the object wonÕt be recognized. 1/fnoise random number generator based on Clarke and Voss.

aleabendover
 External 

Utility to control, here a type of filtering, random distribution output. Utility to control, here a type of filtering, random distribution output. Will foldover any value that falls beyond the boundries. 
aleabeta
 External 

Generates a number with a beta distribution. Generates a number with a beta distribution. With variables > 1, the distribution is bell shaped. With alpha=beta=1, the ditribution is uniform random. With alpha<1 and beta<1, the distribution produces arcsin variations. 
aleabrownie
 External 

A Brownian motion random walker. A Brownian motion random walker. The walker takes off from the start value and moves back and forth between the upper and lower boundries. The step is controlled by a the sigma of a Gaussian distribution (note: this is a slightly differnt version from the gaussian distribution used is aleagauss). When an output value goes over the boundary it is automatically recalculated as it would be elastically reflected by this boundary. 
aleagauss
 External 

A GaussLaplace random number distribution generator with a mean of mu and a bandwidth sigma. Also known as the normal distribution. A GaussLaplace random number distribution generator with a mean of mu and a bandwidth sigma. Also known as the normal distribution.The output of this generator will be (99.75%) a random variable ±6sigma.

Libraries  
ag.graular.suite

Adrian Gierakowski 
The ag.granular.suite is a collection of Max/MSP patches for generalised granular sound processing and microsound composition written using FTM/Gabor libraries (developed at IRCAM) and encapsulated as Jamoma modules. Main features include: subsample accurate scheduling, multichannel output, granulation of multiple soundfiles at the same time (with interpolation of two sources per grain), parameter randomisation and sequencing, control via OSC, preset management, preset interpolation. Its modular architecture makes it possible to easily extend it with new algorithms for grain scheduling and parameter control. 
KNLib 2.7

Roland Cahen 
KNLib is a collection of everyday abstraction tools. It contains mouse and keyboards facilities, converters, calculation, random, interval and scale generators, midi utilities...etc
(The old version is no longer available.
If necessary it can be downloades at :

KnLib2.8.1

Roland Cahen 
KNLib 2.8 is a collection of everyday abstraction tools. It contains mouse and keyboards facilities, converters, calculation, random, interval and scale generators, midi utilities...etc
Most of them are finished, a few are in progress. 
Litter Power Pro Package

Peter Castine 
The Litter Power package consists of over 60 external objects, including a number of new MSP noise sources, externals that produce values from a wide variety of random number distributions, and externals for mutation and crosssynthesis. 
Litter Power Starter Package

Peter Castine 
The Litter Power Starter Pack consists of about two dozen external objects, including a number of new MSP noise sources, a wide variety of random number distributions, timedomain mutation, and several very useful utilities. 
MaxAlea

Carl Faia 
MaxAlea contains various objects for random distributions and functions.
MaxAlea was begun as a Max port of an existing PatchWork Library created in
19912 by Mikhail Malt. While the distributions and functions found in MaxAlea are similar to those found in the Patchwork version ,there are many differences in their functioning. The environment of Patchwork is static and is not designed for realtime work. Part of the incentive for creating these objects to work with Max was to have a dynamic and realtime environment with which to experiment and work with these algorithms in a manner as simple and straightforward as possible. One can change variables and manipulate the output in many ways in realtime.
There are several different versions of the various stochastic models/processes best presented in the now classic references by Denis Lorrain and Charles Dodge. Carl Faia has used
a variety of sources for the creation of this library which include the Lorrain, Dodge and Malt implementations as well as sources found on the WorldWideWeb. The externals found in the package include several random
distributions, examples of random walks and 1/f noise algorithms, as well as one
or two utilities written specifically for the MaxAlea library. Carl Faia wanted to make a
coherent collection (as he thought Malt had managed to do in PatchWork) of these
various algorithms and provide an interface easily accessible using the Max
environment for realtime control.
All these algorithms have been created using a seeded version of the random function found in the standard AINSI library. That is, each time the function is first run there will always be a different set of random numbers (unlike the random funtions found in Max, PatchWork and other versions of random number generators). 
random Objects

Gary Lee Nelson 
These are the collections of seedable random number generators that I wrote sometime in the early 1990's. These classic, OSX and Windows ports are thanks to Jeremy Bernste 
vRand abstractions

Gary Lee Nelson 
These new objects assume that you have downloaded and installed one of the the externals from the random Objects library. There are OS9, OSX and PC versions. (Thanks again to Jeremy Bernstein.) I have not tested these new abstractions in OS 9 or Windows and would appreciate hearing from anyone you can verify that they work.
