I have the 88 expansions that come with K14 CE. Filterable by sound type and expansion. Easy fun inspiration.

Intro video here with link to my gumroad where the file is available.

    Awesome! Thank you so much! I've been wanting to build something to randomize that kind of thing for a while But was put off by the challenge of compiling that master list. So appreciated.

    It was a lot of work but pretty quick to import new expansions in now with the template tab. "Karen's Directory Printer" an invaluable tool for processing the preset folders into text files easy to copy and paste into the spreadsheet.

    This is like one step beyond the Excel Drum Machine I saw years ago

    Can it choose a random kit too? (Does it have data about all the kits from every expansion?)

    Also: if I buy it, can I access the raw data to build my own browser-based tool to select random presets/sounds/kits? (non-commercial use, mainly just for me for now)

    And any chance I could open it in Google Sheets just as a data source (understanding that none of the clever functionality could be used)?

    Regardless, I'm going to buy it now to support you and your fabulous effort!

    Oh hey Peter, I hadn't logged in for quite awhile, lol. Yes, you probably know by now that you can choose random kits and use presets to weight the likelihood of each one being chosen. Yes, all the preset data is accessible in the sheets and nothing is stopping anyone from repurposing it :)

    Hopping on to share that I've made 9 Google sheets covering all of the non-FX instruments in Komplete 14 Collector's edition. Video here: https://youtu.be/2eUrwVlsV7M

    Hi, I've made Google Sheets for picking random presets, easy to use straightaway, also customizable to fit your preferences. Video here: https://youtu.be/2eUrwVlsV7M
