well, thanks for you help lol.
i think i got it figured, and i'll tell just in case someone else wants to know. i'm sure it could be implimented as a plugin.

take your sample, copy it to multiple layers, apply a randomised pitch bend to each sample never exceding 0.5 or -0.5 of a semitone.
stick them all back together.
i worked it out because somewhere someone had made a guitar to sitar effect with similar principles.
