Examples

(
var a, b;
a = Pxrand.new(#[1, 2, 3], 10);    // return 10 items
b = a.asStream;
11.do({ b.next.postln; });
)

//Pxrand used as a sequence of pitches:

(
SynthDef(\help_sinegrain,
    { arg out=0, freq=440, sustain=0.05;
        var env;
        env = EnvGen.kr(Env.perc(0.01, sustain, 0.2), doneAction: Done.freeSelf);
        Out.ar(out, SinOsc.ar(freq, 0, env))
    }).add;
)


(
a = Pxrand(#[60, 61, 63, 65, 72], inf).asStream;
Routine({
    loop({
        Synth(\help_sinegrain, [\freq, a.next.midicps]);
        0.1.wait;
    })
}).play;
