Hyperchaos Deluxe - Magpie white panel

Expanded version of Primal Hyperchaos

Hyperchaos Deluxe is based on the description in A UNIQUE SIGNUM SWITCH FOR CHAOS AND HYPERCHAOS by C. Li et al and is an expansion of the circuit used in Primal Hyperchaos.

There are 10 different CV outputs and 2 gate outputs. The CV IN is associated with the CLIMAX pot which determines how high the peaks go. The module can be greatly influenced by the CV in signal and can exhibit some fairly nutty responses at times.

The Bifurcate knob is kind of a complexity control. Different settings enable the signal to split (bifurcate) in different ways - earlier, later, more often or less. Along with the Climax control, they determine the type of chaotic signals you will get. In slow mode it may be a few minutes before any changes are noticeable.

The Rate input can be used in a few different ways:
1. With nothing patched in the circuit operates in slow mode
2. With a cable patched in, but its other end hanging loose, the circuit operates in fast mode.
3. Feed a gate signal to the Rate input and the circuit will vary between fast and slow modes (gate high = slow)
4. Feed a fast clock signal and you can get the circuit to operate at different speeds. This is quite dependent upon the frequency of the incoming clock and can take some tweaking to get right. If the clock is too fast it will mainly appear to be in slow mode.

Probably 3 is the best option as you can have the CVs cruising along and then suddenly going nutso when the gate ends.
