Mucoder: LFO-driven, midi-mangling arpeggiator

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

System Requirements

  • Available as VST, AU or standalone app
  • For Windows, Mac and Linux
  • Now with 64-bit support
