I just tested more midi controllers at the same time in Kyma. It is working, see the DSP window:

About updates in MIDI in Kyma:

-- New !SongStart, !SongStop, !SongContinue EventValues that you can control by sending the respective MIDI System Real-Time Messages to the Paca(rana)'s MIDI input
-- You can now merge up 8 USB MIDI controllers using the drop down menu in the DSP Status window (requested by JPJ)
-- Fixed longstanding bug in Preferences>Performance>External MIDI Controller>Echo MIDI which would always output 3 zero MIDI bytes after the correct data. (Thanks to Doug Kraul for reporting)
-- Added 14-bit MIDI controller support for Echo MIDI mode

As FireWire will disappear, Symbolic Sound is ahead in this situation. The Kyma Paca(rana) can be connected both, by FireWire/USB-C, or Ethernet laptop connection. Expansion Port B using a Cat6 Ethernet cable:

Wow, can you really connect kyma to pacarana thru the ethernet connection?
I had no idea, that would be a life saver.
I've been looking for thunderbolt laptops all this time..

By usb-c you mean thunderbolt right?


Of course this does not remedy the audio interface situation, since the selection there has become a lot thinner.

If I had to setup a system from scratch today and I only needed stereo, I’d used the Dante USB to Ethernet adapter with Kyma.

I do hope for another revision on the hardware side, mostly because I’ve been pushing the limits on the processing side. I may just go wormhole soon. Unfortunately, they can’t use enable Dante on the current hardware due to the need for specialized chipsets.

I currently from USB-C to a PCI enclosure that has my RME HDSP AES interface and FireWire card for Kyma & a Lynx Aurora. I also use Ethernet because that is how I’ve always used Kyma Connect. The setup works great and the AES & Lynx are also used by the rest of the studio. It is semi-annoying that changing specs will make the current setup harder to maintain in the future, though from a pure spec and connector standpoint, USB-C has a lot going for it if implemented to the fullest of the spec.

Yes, ethernet.

On my Lenovo laptop I used this connection:

From Thunderbolt in/out to Startech TBT - Apple FireWire

As there are 2 FW ports on the Paca(rana), I still use FW to my audio interface connected directly with my Pacarana.

Thanks Roland, I cross checked it with Carla and/or Bert in the forum.
I wasn't 100% certain I understood your setup. But yes, with kyma 7+ which is the 64bit version,
you can use the expb ethernet port to connect with a pc or mac instead of the firewire interface.

This is great for the pc world, where thunderbolt is not so popular but the express port is :)

A new hardware would be a blessing and curse for me I guess.
I am not utilizing my pacarana to that extend, but the allure of new algo's not being able to work on previous machines
is something usual in symbolicsound's world :)
I would hope they include the audio interface this time around,
somehow owing capybara before the rana and not having to look for supported interfaces whilst undeniably
getting an excellent sound from the included interface made things simpler.

Back to sound examples.

Resynthesis in Kyma is an extremely powerful tool:

It’s a real shame that Dante (or audio over Ethernet) can’t be enabled but it is what it is. At least the data over Ethernet simplifies things (I was already using for KymaConnect too). I’d happily pay for either new hardware or a mod to existing hardware to remove the requirement for a separate audio interface. A little extra processing power wouldn’t go amiss though. With things like replicators now I’m Kyma it can be quite easy to max out.
Love Kyma and Symbolic Sound though, they are so responsive and their continual stream of updates and new features is outstanding!
Here are a few new things I’ve done;

Hidden Markov Model on Vivaldi’s four seasons with a few interpolated wavetables.

Replicated chaotic7 chopping of James Blake and Fleetwood MAC songs ;)

This abstraction is modulated by the violoncello's amplitude and frequency.
