November 22, 2011
Kyma X.82 updates Kyma X/Pacarana sound synthesis engine CHAMPAIGN, IL — Kyma X.82, a new software update for Symbolic Sound’s Kyma X/Pacarana sound synthesis engine, is the result of two years of R&D. The update takes advantage of the expressiveness and extended control offered by the newest alternative controllers for sound design and music and musical interfaces.

Features in Symbolic’s (www.symbolicsound.com) Kyma X.82 include 21 new keyboard-controllable morphing synthesis algorithms, support for 14-bit MIDI controllers and the publication of Kyma's OSC protocol. which means that third-party developers can create software interfaces, alternative controllers and new musical instruments that can take advantage of Kyma's library of expressive, responsive algorithms. The protocol includes two-way communication of note events, controllers and graphical control surface layouts over TCP/IP networks (such as Ethernet, Wi-fi or the Web).

A batch analysis tool included in the release allow Kyma users to create custom Analysis File libraries, giving their own signature sound to the new synthesis algorithms in Kyma X.82.
