Working and pushing the LiveWire Chaos computer

May 21, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The new Livewire Chaos Computer is an expandable system using complex mathematical functions to produce multiple chaotic CV outputs.

CORE CHAOS ENGINE

The heart of the system is the Core Chaos Engine, which utilizes dual 32-bit Chaos Processing Units (or ‘CPU’s) and a x-modulo feedback parity tree to produce 2 sets of 4 related but distinctly unique random stepped voltage outputs. The randomness of the outputs (ranging from cyclical conformity to total anarchy) is controlled by 16 probability switches, which determine the structure of the x-modulo parity tree. Each of the 8 outputs varies based on coefficients determining specific weighting and distribution.

RANDOM GATES

The Random Gate expansion module provides addtional 16 outputs (8 per CPU) each with unique random gate patterns. This module would be very useful in triggering rhytmically related random events. Up to 8 Random Gate expanders can be added for up to 64 distinctly separate outputs.

ANALOGUE COMPUTATION

The Analogue Computation expansion module selects 2 variables, 1 each from the 4 random stepped voltages of both Core Chaos Engine CPUs. These variables are then processed through 8 mathemathical operators providing a further 8 related, but unique random CV outputs.

Here again is the prototype Livewire Chaos Computer eurorack module, this time with the highly respected Livewire Audio Frequency Generator and FrequenSteiner modules. We have the Chaos Computer synced with the Metasonix D-1000 for some sweet analog rhythm.
