Hello everyone! First post here :D
I just made a very fun tool for composing music with the awesome random generator. It's quite basic because I learned to use it while I was making it (that shows how easy and powerful the generator is, thanks for making it!).
It sets some basic (or not so, but anyway) parameters for composing:
Speed, mood (quite subjective but inspiring, i hope), time signature, musical materials to use and amount of notes. The only problem I could not solve was the note picking thing, and I solved it temporarily providing a link to a page I found, which allows you to select the amount of notes and the notes you want to randomize, as well as a timer function to automatically randomize.
(I was going to put the links in here but couldn't because I just signed up, here are the pastebin codes for the gen):

Random Song Maker in Spanish:
And google the "Random Note Picker" from Bret Pimentel, you'll find it right away.
Anyway, I was thinking how to make a reduced version of Bret's note picker inside the generator so there's no need to use that tool (which isn't that bothering, after all), but I still couldn't think a solution for it. If anyone could point me in some direction regarding this subject, it would be awesome!
What I need is to:
Randomly pick between 3 and 12 notes, non repeating, represented with letters from A to G, for the sake of simplicity (avoiding enharmonics) with one sharp: F# and four flats: Bb, Eb, Ab, Db. In total: seven notes and five accidentals = 12 notes. The chromatic sequence in order looks like this:
C, Db, D, Eb, E, F, F#, G, Ab, A, Bb, B.
Some examples from Bret's Note picker:
E Bb D
F♯ C A♭ G E♭ B E
F A G C B E♭ E D♭ A♭ D F♯ B♭
Thanks in advance to everyone, I hope you enjoy the generator and make some cool music ;)
Greetings and have a nice weekend!
