What is hypercyclic?:

  • an LFO-driven MIDI arpeggiator, gate effect and step sequencer.
  • for mangling sustained MIDI input chords.
  • the output of which can then drive other MIDI instruments.
  • acts either as a VST or Audio Unit plugin for your DAW, or as a standalone application.
  • the original hypercyclic won 2nd place in the KVRAudio.com Developer Challenge '07.
  • the sweetspot for hypercyclic is the narrow border between chaos and regularity. Or, in other words, how to induce a certain pleasant randomness and syncopation, yet forcing everything to align again on the bar or beat boundaries.

How do you use it?:

  • the main use for hypercyclic is to generate MIDI that can be recorded and/or sent to other plugins. However it also features a simple built-in synth for testing purposes.
  • you can use two tempo-synced LFOs to modulate various parameters for creating interesting rhythmic effects and chord variations.
  • a unique feature is the possiblity to modulate the sequencer step size itself, which is useful for creating glitchy stuttering effects.
  • another thing you can use is a groove function for playing slightly off the beat. The groove parameters can also be modulated over time by the LFOs, adding to the rhythmic variation.

Now with 64-bit support.
