wow @Roland, so much new cool stuff!! Love the Buchla one (and the cello one, and the others too!!)

I did a workshop a while ago with Alan Jackson building a granular engine in Kyma .... my brain kind of exploded half way through ;) , but here are two short tests:





Hope you are all well,
all best from Munich,

I just got back into Kyma! I ended up taking some lessons. I have a Capybara and two Pacarana systems - but - may just addd a third. I was doing a random browse and landed on these messages. Really cool!

I have been thinking about a Kyma Clone of the Yamaha-VP1 since that was all straightforward physical modelling and looking around I found an old advertisement for Harm Visser's physical modeling tools. I think I bought one years ago for my Capybarra but the library is one some backup hard drive (if the drive even works) from years ago. I did not see it available any more. I am sure at some point, a more thorough and coherent physical toolkit would be a nice addition. So one could have the Korg-Z1, the VP-1, and others.

I’ve been thinking about a set of kyma sounds for the community that is based in part on the old Visser tools, published examples from the old Nord and electro-music archives and my own research.

I would love to partner with someone who actually knows more about the instrument side in terms of how people use and play instruments because I can get semi far on core models that can be interesting but as I don’t actually play the instrument and not really a musician who “plays”, I am uncertain about what is always needed to to bring it to life. Left to my own devices, my examples tend to head for the realm of using PM principles to make nice sounds but not replicas per say.

Thanks for your example @ Bear.
Staircasing is giving it a little extra!

I would be happy to try out any sounds you post as Kyma sounds! This is idea sounds super great so would appreciate any efforts. I am more of a player and less of a coder though in my day job I am mostly a coder and nothing of a player!

Dear Wigglers, and especially Kyma wigglers,

The COV-19 introspection brought me so much, and among one of these insights is that I will not continue my posts here.
I just started this thread to give some examples, just a few.
This seed has become a tree, but I can't nurture it any more.
Please continue by taking care of it. We need green (= ideas) on this planet.
Thank you all for your input and postings.
Stay abstract!

Best, Roland

PS: I no way I am leaving the Kyma platform.
Updates and all you can find on my website in short time.

Understand completely. It’s been a pleasure having you post here and I’ll keep following your Facebook and website :)
I’ll start by sharing some sounds:

Live granulation of the rain (Ambisonic>Binaural) using Kyma whilst getting ambient on the Moog One. Recorded live last Sunday night, unbeknownst to me at the time, on the night a close friend unfortunately left this world far too young. Knowing that I captured a bit of the environment that evening I think will make this a forever special recording to me. I find it quite calming, maybe if you’ve had a tough time you will too. X

Beautiful atmosphere @Gosh. And sorry for your loss. The sounds are breathing peace.

Thanks, so I just signed up using the page you linked, which said they would inform me when it's available for preorder. I think I'm too tolerant of bugs and inexperienced with Kyma to be an effective first responder, so I don't really need to gather details in order to be ready to pounce at the very first announcement, but I'm still curious...

What will be available to preorder, exactly?

I'm assuming it's a hardware refresh and some new features, maybe a pivot towards broader accessibility, and with up-to-date I/O, but that's entirely based upon associating Symbolic Sound with Haken Audio, and their recent moves.

Any idea what and when, as much as you are privy to say?
