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 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

This effect is comprised of an emulation of analog phaser effect and Summing Tube Amplifier (STA) which mixes the wet and dry signal as well as it adds a nonlinear distortion resulting in more vintage sound.

Primarily, this effect is designed to be used as an insert effect to fully exploit the summing circuit.

The plugin has also a “Wet only” option when only the effected signal is processed by the tube circuit, which allows to use the plugin also in a send bus.
