A 'deterministic chaos' synth which produces complex sounds by distorting the phase of an oscillator by deceptively simple expressions. The expressions are a 'circle map' followed by a 'doubling map'.
When you listen to the demo audio files, note that there is no 'programming of notes' or arpeggiation or MIDI note sliding or any other pre-set sequencing going on there - even though it may sound like it! And as with all the audio files of all my synths, there are no external effects applied either.
Changing the values of the Chaosorus sliders results in a different soundset being produced by each key of your MIDI keyboard, but the soundsets are not 'random' in the sense that if you like what you hear when you press a certain key, you can repeat it by pressing the same key again. That's the difference between deterministic chaos featured by Chaosorus, and dynamic stochastic synthesis featured by Blowfly - which uses probability distributions to create each cycle of the waveform.
