Strange Attractor is a novel sound generator and effects processor based on chaos theory. At its heart is a feedback system which can spontaneously oscillate, or respond to incoming sounds, processing them into fractal sonic textures.

It generates a wide range of undulating sounds, controlled by touch, which slowly evolve in unpredictable ways. The sound is visualised as an ever-changing dynamic form.

More like this please!

If you need an application to randomly generate sounds this is definitely worth buying. I can also see this being a great little live tool; perhaps you want your set to end in scary electronic chaos - this app will do that for you.

White noise and that's it. Rubbish. £1.99! Trust me this is daylight robbery. Why do iTunes let this crap go on the App Store? No stars.

This is a fantastically strange app

Please sort the record/copy out.
Problems I've encountered using iPhone 4S running the latest version of ios7.
1. Sometimes it will only record for an average of 26 seconds and just stop recording.
2. Once a successful recording has taken place it does not appear in the copy folder.
3. The obvious workaround is using Audiobus, but I don't always want to go through that process.

Despite these things, SA is a fantastic app for a musician who likes to produce evolving soundscapes such as myself.
I've used SA in some of my latest works in production that I will upload to Soundcloud when the set is complete.
My SC AKA is Carbonates On Mars.
