    SoundWeaver is a super important sound-design tool.
    You don’t have to always specify file keywords or tags if you have a mixture of sound types; just choose the folder and randomize from there. Careful with file length, as the prog will seize up with overloads of file size and/or number of samples loaded.
    Although snapshots will store parameter (pitch, placement, volume, panning, etc) randomizations, they are lost with subsequent sample re-randomization. However, “undo” will return to previous states of sample randomization (which is great if you’re output is being recorded elsewise).

    With a few added and modified features, it will be stellar:
    Randomization of panning.
    Increase gain maximums for samples, groups, and main out.
    Graded detente/snapping on time line and/or grid
    Snap all command to loop start or timeline’s zero.
    Export chosen loop length instead of all the fluff if long files are loaded.
