Chaos Effects is a pack of two “chaotic” devices: Dedalus Delay – A real-time echoes maze generator, Stutter Switch – A complex rhythm gate. Both can be used to create unusual rhythmic textures, to heavily mangle the input sound or to subtly alter its characteristics. Dedalus Delay is a real-time audio mangler. A network of delay lines is continually granulated and modulated, producing a labyrinth of echoes, which are further processed by filters, dynamic processors and saturation modules. Dedalus can produce a wide variety of effects, from reverb-like ambiences to evolving resonations, from rhythmic pulsation to chaotic layering, from subtle chorusing to pure noise.
Stutter Switch is a complex rhythmic gate, with feedback delay, stutter, filter, overdrive, envelope (switch) generator and switch modulation.
The incoming audio signal is rhythmically “switched” on and off according to a stream of envelopes/gates; a delay circuit feeds the switched signal back to the gating system to further slice it. Every slice of sound can be processed with different filter and panning parameters.
