The long-awaited Chaos Computer is an eight-channel Random Voltage Source producing stepped voltages depending on clocks. It features an X-axis and one Y-axis random generator with 4 outputs each that are driven by different mathematical distribution probabilities.The supercool LED display adds to it´s character
The Chaos Computer consists of two independent stepped random voltage generators, the X-axis generator ans the Y-axis generator. They have their individual clock generators as well as external clock inputs and can run in synchronous or in asynchronous manner. Sixteen probablilty switches determine the behaviour of both random generators.
Each generator has a number of outputs; besides a binary out and a gate output there are four random outputs depending on mathematical distributions: uniform distribution and normal (Gaussian) distribution, each with two widths (close and wide).
The matrix LED display shows rate and amount of change of each random generator.The Chaos Computer will be available again for a short time in December 2020. The front panels of this batch show slight scratches and therefore the module is offered for a special price.

Mike Brown studied at electronic music at Cal State University San Bernardino and always wanted to have a modular system he couldn't afford. In 1994 he discovered the book "Build your own synthesizer" by Thomas Henry at a local library. Years later, fed up of his corporate day job, he started Livewire and produced iconic modules such as the Dual Cyclotron, FrequenSteiner, Chaos Computer or the AFG oscillator. Mike Brown passed away in 2012. His long time friend Steve Rightnor is currently keeping his legacy alive, reissuing the iconic AFG.
