Its obvious but it works, it REALLY works.
This guys technique (great channel) creates brand NEW sounds in operator super fast (his featured racks are free, grab em)
Using the same technique, I’ve just been quickly mapping a few of my favourite VST synths sound changing variables to macros (Waveforms, LFO types, Filter Types ), hitting random and I have instant new sounds! Which you can easily save using the macro snapshot mode.
The other creative thing is you can now remix your fav classic presets.
Set up the macros to only randomise certain elements, meaning you can keep aspects of the preset you like (FX, sequencing etc).
This is really powerful stuff, a simple random macro button is a great addition to Ableton.
