is a "noise design application", featuring audio synthesis and effects.
of this experimentally designed application is to generate new sounds and noises, and also to alter wave files using simple and complex mathematical effects.
The results may sound "noisy" and chaotic and, actually, they are, although rather predictible when getting used to the application.
caotica2 is a source of «rough sound material» for the use of experimental composers.
is the standard WAVE AUDIO, 16 bit, mono or stereo, at any sample rate.
it can also import and export MP3, OGG/Vorbis and FLAC files.
no powerful machine is needed to use this application, because it has been optimized to minimize memory use and disk accesses.
any computer supporting windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000 or XP can run caotica2.
for Linux and FreeBSD users, it can also run under
emulator using the normal installer or
this package for LINUX
(unzip to c:).
a 800*600 display and a 16 bit soundcard are recommended.
as there is no tool to build compositions in caotica2, it seems necessary to have another sound application to perform sequencing, for caotica2 has been developed only to dig sound out from the infinite diversity of chaos.
