    Hi All,
    Does anyone know of an object for or method of randomly choosing from floats within a list?
    Thanks Jack

      Brilliant, Thank you.
      Both are great approaches.

      @7nches - just curious, what's the point of the [t l l] object joined to the list/message outlet? doesn't the max order of execution output in the same order as the trigger, making it superfluous? is there something i'm missing?

      @tdaeik, you're right, it's totally useless in this case. I couldn't tell you why I put it there if I wanted. I did this pretty fast, without thinking too much about optimization.

      I'd consider it good style. It improves readability, avoids errors when you go back to a patch and move things around, and takes next to 0 computing. Becomes more important when your patches get bigger though.
