Kyma address is not the same thing that addressing a synthesizer, by bringing home and reading a manual to learn how to use to blow constantly as controller or another key. Kyma is a software and a black box called the Capybara. The software gives the orders and execute so-called black box. However, it is not actually 'order' taking place by snapping two fingers. These 'orders' are the result of sound design structure of thought with careful consideration that the user must define and Kyma élaborder. Kyma is therefore only a simple interface that simplifies the art of sound design. For simplicity, I mean that Kyma is an 'interface' graph interprets and instructs a slab of Motorola DSP. Indeed, it is even possible to program directly in assembler DSP ...

UTILIZATION

Kyma, like any other software tool dedicated to music, uses a tool 'Timeline' (timeline). But it has sth over and can accompplir things that other sequencers do not necessarily. It can be understood as a scheduler or a synthesis architecture can vary in short time. Unlike a hardware system that has resources determined once and for all, the capybara can be reused for different purposes at different times, and these changes are specific to the sample, so there is no latency .

SOUNDS

We specify most of the parameters with values ​​between 0 and 1. For example, the A3 is a value for 0.259842519685039370078740
It can produce sounds 'hierarchy' that have a complex structure without having to need to refer to models such as the usual musical score, an instrument or note.

The scripts are written in Kyma Smalltalk80, which is a form of object-oriented language that allows creating iterations and lots of other useful functions. Sounds can be generated algorithmically. We can also produce events recursive

OVERALL OPINION

One of the reasons why most do not realize that Kyma can do is precisely because Kyma is very open to many possibilities. Once in the hands, not Kyma that will produce the original is a user-to devote the time it takes! And that's what makes it different from a synthesizer.

From my point of view Personal, it is preferable TO USER to have sufficient knowledge in the field of signal processing that is a rather technical and scientific background. The use of functions such as arccosine or other various mathematical functions are not being at hand by accident. With the Kyma for about 5 years, I have increased my knowledge in parallel for other reasons. This allowed me to master certain decisions much for sound design. Otherwise I am convinced that the increase would have been slower approach with a 'thumb' and purely musical. While the sound design is allowed to the general public through all of the features ready to use in most products, Kyma does not underestimate the user, it gives the 'truth' of an art that actually depends mainly ingenuity and a level of mastery that does not come within a few days as you can get used to the traditional functions of a syntétiseur.
