I am using the List Randomizer to randomize lists of music chords so as to improve my skill at sight-reading music by practicing moving quickly from one chord to another on my musical instrument (upright bass) without either mind memory or ‘finger memory’ interfering by allowing me to increasingly do the exercise without actually having to read the chords. (I have found this to be a major fault with books supposedly designed to improve sight-reading.)
While I am sure that for this rather pedestrian purpose, a PRNG would serve as well as a TRNG, yours was the first List Randomizer I found after long web sessions of searching, and it's perfect for what I need. The nondeterministic feature of your TRNG—while perhaps overkill for my purpose—is definitely appealing.

I'm a professional cellist, and I have a study book of about a thousand short technical exercises. I use your site like the sax player, Jeff, to pick a few at random to work on when I practise, so that I'm always working on a different aspect of my playing. It helps keep my music fresh.

I'm yet another musician who has found Random.org very useful. Much of my music for jazz orchestra is centered around improvisation, so when I write certain passages (especially ones using twelve-tone rows), I don't want to influence the choices of notes and use your sequences tool. Also, I practice saxophone from a book with over 1300 scales & patterns to choose from. To keep things interesting, I have random.org give me 10 or 20 numbers for each day's practice. Thank you for the great site!

I just wanted to drop you a quick note on how I have been using your Random.org random number generator. I program automated lighting for concerts, and very often want to select random groups of fixtures, set colors to random values, or randomize strobes. Although some control consoles have a random feature built in, I would much rather have a predictable, random set that I know is truly random, yet predictable for each show. Thanks for helping me keep my shows nice and randomly flashy!
