Rominimal: 3 tools to use to generate random darkrominimal textures without touching a synth

How can we make random texture bursts without touching a synthesizer? The answer of course is sampling.

But what tools can we actually use for that?

In this video I wanted to share 3 simple and effective tools that we can use for random texture hits that potentially lets you create whole tracks out of it without touching any notes on the keyboard or fiddling around with synth plugins and it almost creates a rough arrangement already for you as well.
