I have chosen, for now, not to use any quantizer or chord generators...I dont want anything to constrict possibilities within the system and predetermine structures would I feel lead me back to the black and white keyboard and I prefer to use my ear to tune VCO's. I have nothing against the keyboard I just want to explore other scenarios that have more accidents
This is what led me to explore fractal and algorithmic music in the 90s. I wanted to rely more on my ears and less on the physical limitations of my fingers to find interesting "seeds" from raw sonic material to develop further into a composition. There is also a spirit of discovery in this approach (and in yours) that makes it more fun to create music.
I also found changing the keyboard settings so that each key is less than a 'note' apart can drastically alter the sounds produced
