Xenos is a virtual instrument plug-in that implements and extends the Dynamic Stochastic Synthesis (DSS) algorithm invented by Iannis Xenakis. Programmed in C++ with the JUCE framework, Xenos is open-source, cross-platform, and can be built in a number of plug-in formats.
Key features include:
Authentic DSS engine
Xenharmonic pitch quantizer
Custom scale import in the Scala format
Ten stochastic distributions with up to two parameters each
First- and second-order random walks
Variable number of segments per wave cycle
Variable amplitude envelope
Polyphonic (64 voices by default)
MIDI implementation (notes, sustain, pitch bend)
External MIDI controller assignment
Simple and streamlined interface
Free and open source
Xenos has been tested on macOS 10.14.6 and Windows 10 (64-bit).
