It took me over 6 months to dig into every aspect of the “prototypes” (the leaves of the big tree). Then I could build more complex patches (the branches of the. The preeminent DSP system is Kyma by Symbolic Sound. You derive your own sounds from an assortment of prototypes which are complete enough to make. Our work is largely experimental, and is not intended to substitute the excellent Kyma spectral processing native prototypes. Rather, we hope to extend them into .

Sounds are organized in categories, and there is a Find command to help you search. I found interesting with Kyma how the vocoder could be clear and bright when ,yma turn a lot of band-pass filters on. There is a section on “What do the yellow triangles mean” but I am still confused on the following points: This happend to me as I was working through the tutorials and editing both my own Sound File A and one from Kyma’s “factory presets” B.

The number of tracks is unlimited; to create a new one, simply drag a Sound into an empty area. The colors indicate intensity, with yellows and greens indicating the highest amplitudes and purples and blues indicating lower amplitudes.

Running an engine through a Vocoder. Jean-Edouard September 12th, A Prototypes palette across kjma top of the screen gives you access to over modules for sound synthesis, processing, and sampling. If you understand the logic of your plugin, you have a chance to reproduce it in Kyma.

You could think of the timeline as a “process prottoypes. Just started using Kyma. Did you program that software? It sounds like you did a lot of research on the frequency domain and it reminds me a bit the Michael Norris plug-in suite. I really like the Kyma info thanks for sharing as I got one toogreat reel by the way.


Rotary controls are mapped to the continuous rotaries on the Motor Mix, switches and buttons turn lights on and off on the Motor Mix switches, motorized faders on the Motor Mix jump to the kyyma positions as their counterparts on the virtual control surface, and the parameter names appear on the LCD scribble strip at the top of the Motor Mix.

Frequencies and amplitudes are nothing else than a sequence of digits that can be modified mathematically. Add as many modules to the chain as you like.

Distressor April 10th, With the focus on the window for A, I ctrl-S to save, but in the browser the yellow traingles still exist for both.

To apply an effect to a Sound in the timeline, simply drag a module from the palette at the top of the screen or from the Sound Browser, and drop it onto the sound in the timeline. Kyma’s spectrum editor shows time from left to lrototypes and frequency from low to high. For example, a sound can be just a parameter of another sound parameter that controls one parameter of a totally different sound.

Hi Jean, This all sounds like it could be done with SpectrumWorx!

Try to delay a sound under 30 ms and add a bit of feedback to it. You can also use arithmetic expressions to control the way parameters evolve over time and to create dynamic relationships between parameters. I would even be willing to pay money for these patches from you so I could pull them apart and have them as a starting point for prototyypes own sounds.


So, I downloaded a few trailers I found interesting in terms of visual texture and dynamic, converted them into quicktime DV, brought them up in a ProTools session and started to record while performing my sounds in real time on picture. I think Proototypes already saved A, but being a newbie, I’m nervous about it.

It goes right away in Kyma and proototypes on a record track within Pro Tools. Is it faders as controllers or something else?

Use the spectrum editor to audition or modify the selected partial s. If you combine the quick-responsiveness of Kyma’s controls with some physical MIDI faders, you can enjoy that same feeling you get from tweaking the parameters on a hardware synth.

Use the timeline to spatialize tracks or individual sounds within the tracks. I was going through my libraries listening to ratchets when I came down on an click of an old 35mm camera.

Hi Jean, Working with the Kyma like you, i tried your first sound and found the way to make frozen sound but how vocalize them?? Listen at each step along the signal path, or edit the Sound by modifying, adding, deleting, or replacing modules. Then, over time, you can begin to take control over more and more of the details until Kyma becomes your own customized sound design environment.
