Sloth Chaos

This is a very simple to build chaos module that can be built in 2 ways: slow or VERY slow. Slow means 1 cycle every 15 seconds, VERY slow is 1 cycle every 15 minutes. It can take up to an hour for any change to be apparent when tweaking the pot. This module is ideal for ambience and extremely patient synth users. I developed it as I like to have my synths running whilst soldering away in the workshop and I like slow never-repeating changes to the patches.
The PCB is 16 x 95 mm, suitable for 4HP eurorack panels (panels will be available soon)
PCBs are available now (13/9/2014) for $8 each.
Shipping is $5 per order

The super slow version shown below has two 1000uF caps.

Hyperchaos Module

This vid shows testing of a hyperchaotic circuit. The circuit is comprised of two coupled Wien  Bridge oscillators. There is a temptation to call it 'Hyper Wieners', but I might just leave the 'ers' silent and call it Hyper-Wien.
Anyway, it oscillates at approx 0.5Hz, the PCB will have a vactrol to 'control' it but the effect from any CV signal takes 30 seconds to a minute to make the pattern change.
