Chaos Theory for Synthesizers
A chaotic attractor from a circuit with three integrators and two step-function nonlinearities. Each step function produces a double scroll in the attractor. An accompanying
sound clip was produced by a patch where the chaos circuit controlled several synthesizer parameters, while itself being repetitively pulsed as the integration rate was varied in steps from low to high and back.
Introduction to chaos and to analog circuit implementation of chaotic systems.
EZ Chaos Circuit:
An easy-to-build but highly versatile chaos circuit analogous to the standard driven double-well oscillator.
A chaos module combining an extended EZchaos circuit with a quadrature oscillator used provide external drive.
This circuit calculates the chaotic oscillations of a third-order, or "jerk", differential equation.
A third-order chaotic system with extensive voltage control.
A circuitry for obtaining chaotic time sequences and discrete chaotic signals from continuous chaos oscillations.
A system of voltage-controlled damped integrators with individual nonlinear circuits that can be configured in a closed loop to produce various multiphase chaotic oscillations.
A system consisting of damped harmonic oscillator circuit coupled to a through-zero FM voltage-controlled oscillator circuit to simulate a traveling-wave driven response.
A fourth-order hyperchaotic system with voltage control of key parameters.
