Choosing a Random Synth in Sonic Pi

Towards the end of our coding class at school today, one of the children asked me how they would choose a random synth in their code.  I couldn’t give them the answer off of the top of my head so I came home and have placed two different solutions below:

# Choosing a Random Synth in Sonic Pi

# Solution 1
10.times do
  use_synth [:beep, :blade, :cnoise, :dpulse].choose
  play :C3
  sleep 1
end

# Solution 2
10.times do
 use_synth choose([:beep, :blade, :cnoise, :dpulse])
 play :C3
 sleep 1
end
