Harmony Systems KymaConnect
Harmony Systems announced the availability of KymaConnect, a Mac OSX connectivity application forSymbolic Sound Kyma™ users that adds functionality to the Delora PacaConnect product.
KymaConnect is designed to reduce cost and on-stage or studio setup complexity.
KymaConnect's integrated networking and MIDI functions are designed to reduce or eliminate additional MIDI interfaces and networking hardware. Paca(rana) owners can obtain MIDI connectivity between their Mac and the sound engine without additional MIDI interfaces. Both Capybara and Paca(rana) users can use KymaConnect's built-in MIDI patchbay and advanced router. Networking setups to accommodate Wi-Fi based OSC controllers have less components and cables, the company says.
Proxies Support Paca(rana) and Capybara owners
KymaConnect's "Paca Proxy" "bridges" clients on one network to the Paca(rana) on another, with bi-directional OSC support. Now the benefits of tablet and smartphone apps like Delora vKi, vKiP, Symbolic Sound Kyma Control, and TouchOSC, can be obtained with a setup such as a MacBook computer connected to the Paca(rana).
Capybara owners also welcome the "CapyProxy", which integrates features found in the Delora CapyLink product. This gives Capybara users access to OSC apps like vKi and vKiP.
Both proxies extend Kyma's OSC "language" with the addition of shortcut commands. These can be used to remote control critical Kyma functions like starting and stopping a sound.
"Virtual MIDI Patchbay" Features
KymaConnect provides an available connection between up to four (4) MIDI devices and the Paca(rana) or Capybara. With KymaConnect, the Paca(rana) or Capybara can be controlled from an external MIDI keyboard or other controller without running a sequencer or other software. It also provides a "virtual MIDI port" that software music applications may use to send and receive MIDI from the Paca(rana).
Connection Customization Options
KymaConnect has advanced MIDI channel mapping capabilities. The channel can be specified for MIDI device sending and receiving, and altered as needed in a routing table. Channel mapping can be used to "mute" (disable) certain channels, or relocate one channel to another.
Pricing & Availability
KymaConnect is available for $29.95(USD) at www.delora.com.
