anagram MIDI scramble tool

Details & info

anagram is a Max 4 Live MIDI effect that shuffles notes in a MIDI clip.
Aimed specifically at using it with Live’s Slice to MIDI feature, this user-requested device analyses and scrambles MIDI note pitch, velocity, position, length, mute and chance depending on the set mode.
