Playing randomly from the buffer is easy enough, but I think there are
some other things going on in the plugins I like most.

However, I'm sure as ChucK develops it won't be so hard to do these
things natively in ChucK. Much more important are the bread and butter
tools, like compression and the like. Having the oscillators and
filters is a good start.

I agree 100% - Jack for Windows would solve the problem nicely. As
would OSC support in the major hosts. Plogue Bidule is a decent
alternative I guess, with OSC support and plugin hosting, though it
tends to be somewhat CPU hungry.
