[PD] Fwd: random routing of 8 audio-streams to 8 outputs

I do this using throw~ and catch~ where the mapping happens in an abstraction within a clone object. I've used this heavily for spatialized projects at work up for up to 64 channels.

Here is a simple solution using Han's c_urn suggestion to do the random number generation:

https://github.com/danomatika/BangYourHead/tree/master/3.Audio/rand8player <https://github.com/danomatika/BangYourHead/tree/master/3.Audio/rand8player>

This could be further cleaned by using an output abstraction that wraps a [dac~] without creation args so you can set the output channel. You could also integrate the [dac~] into the existing channel map abstraction too, but I figured it was easier to read using a single doc~ object as an example.

if you want further heavy usage of this approach with multiple mapping layers, see https://github.com/zkmkarlsruhe/ZirkoniumSpatializationServer <https://github.com/zkmkarlsruhe/ZirkoniumSpatializationServer>
