Zooming in on articulated Noise Spikes. For YT I had to merge down quad to stereo:

Articulated Noise Spikes into 20x copied Resonators:

I added a new sound to the Kyma Sound Library.

This one is a example of 2D modulator which combines an offset, LFO with variable rate / shape / phase, envelope, random source and 4 step sequencer. You can use it to create Lissajous curves or other complex modulation shapes.

For the example sound source, I used the morphing grain cloud prototype with one axis controlling the morphing between different granular envelope shapes and the other axis morphing the granular waveform.

If someone wants to record and post an example for non-Kyma users to hear, please do.
Roland Kuit
Thanks Ben, I will have a look.

I used the Resonator model often to give a body to an articulation:

This is great, Roland!

Thanks for posting these. I look forward to getting KYMA in my life, someday soon.

Hey, I just want to say how much I'm enjoying this thread. I'm not in the market for a KYMA, both given budget and what I want to do, but I'm learning an awful lot. Thank you!!

Made a quick example of the sound I uploaded to the Kyma user library (referenced above).

This is a simple repeating sequence with the grain envelope and grain waveform being scanned by the XY modulation mixer. I am only modulating those two aspects, no effects, no filter modulation, or modulating the grain duration or density.

Here is the Soundcloud link:

YW. This thread is about inspiration. There are more beautiful instruments, hard- and software. But Kyma just amazes me more than the other goodies.

Thank you Ben, wonderful sound(creation).

Very nice. I too wish I could delve into the Kyma universe but alas I'm an old retired geezer with insufficient funds. waah

I hear some great impro's on your SC Scott!

Except creating wonderful and amazing sounds, the interaction between composer/performer and Kyma can be quite different than with other instruments. In this case a Wacom tablet & pen are used for a music performance:

gosh
Lovely demo's all...

Another bit of fun: https://soundcloud.com/unconventionalwires/expression

Thank you Gosh, and good to see this topic is getting more examples of Kyma 's possibilities. Kyma is a language and users can make their own out of it.
Roland Kuit
Again a pen example. This time the Wacom pen controls a Slipstick module for scraping a modal filter:

Electronic music pioneer Karel Goeyvaerts worked with additive synthesis. Building sounds by stacking pure sine tones. In this example meets the additive synthesis the swarmology:

Roland Kuit
Or what about a Swarm is controlling a swarm?

gosh
Nice...!
Here are my first time using psi and tau morph files. Not expertly done but great fun. One played using a Roli the other a wacom tablet.

Psi & Tau are power tools in Kyma smile

This is very basic:

"On - off clicks" as impulse response for 2 vocal filters:

Roland Kuit
An other basic example in the use of the bandwidth of Noise.
The noise is filtered using 16 bands. When wide, there is more movement and we hear a kind of strings sound.
By narrowing down the bandwidth, the sound becomes more organ like:

More Kyma fun. A 3D Tau morph of microloops of voices, drums, synths, animals and a motorbike, with a send to a spectral blur.

This thread is amazing! I've been curious about how Kyma operates and what's possible with it ever since I learned Amon Tobin used it for ISAM back in 2010 - speaking of which, when the hell is he gonna release a new album???

But yeah - I remember it being pretty expensive - what would you recommend for an entry-level bundle? A continuum keyboard would be amazing, but expensive - any other options for a controller you'd suggest?
gosh
I’ve literally just ordered a Haken, very excited! I can whole heartedly recommend a Roli Rise controller though (what I’m currently using)…still not cheap but a lot less pricey than a Haken. I think it would be a shame to get a controller which doesn’t take advantage of MPE, so Roli, Haken and Linnstrument are the obvious choices…you may find a smaller Roli Seaboard Block is sufficient though. A Wacom tablet is also surprisingly excellent at controlling Kyma sounds with a lot of tactile control.



Having spent some time now with Kyma and MPE synths I can truly say that I much prefer this expressive style, and know it’s the road I want to go down…so I decided to go all out for a Haken and get a controller/synth which, in conjunction with Kyma, will keep me busy for years. From what I’ve read the sensitivity of the Haken can’t be beaten. The Roli Rise is certainly pretty sensitive but the ridges and troughs of the 12-TET keys keep you in check a little more than I would like…I’m looking forward to the unrestricted access that a smooth continuous plane like the Haken will bring.



As for Kyma…big thumbs up. I’ve had it a few months now and have the bug!
gosh
Ps. Happy birthday Roland!

Gosh is right that something like Soundplane, Roli, Haken, or Linn would be ideal but you can start with an iPad, which is super helpful anyhow because you can use it as an control surface for all the faders / knobs even when you have the aforementioned controllers.

For years I used a normal keyboard and that is will get you very far so don't discount that as a start either. I have a Soundplane now and I still use other controllers like the Manta just as often.

You can also wire up all sorts of fun things via OSCulator like Wiimote controllers, Lemur (iPad or original), TouchOSC, and much more.
