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 .

I think I’ve already saved A, but being a newbie, I’m nervous about it. Then I could build more complex patches the branches of the tree depending on my needs and write little scripts in kyma language to control my sounds algorithmically. Parameter automation Use the Controller editor at the bottom of the timeline to draw time-varying parameters for sounds in the timeline.

With the focus on the window for A, I ctrl-S to save, but in the browser the yellow traingles still exist for both. At this point I haven’t read the Timeline stuff – I skipped to Part 2 from page 45, so I could find out about making sounds.

Use the timeline to spatialize tracks or individual sounds within the tracks. Signal Flow Editor Double-click on a Sound in the timeline or Sound browser to see how it was created. Working with the Kyma like you, i tried your first sound and found the way to make frozen sound but how vocalize them??

I was going through my libraries listening to ratchets when I came down on an click of an old 35mm camera. The colors indicate intensity, with yellows and greens indicating the highest amplitudes and purples and blues indicating lower amplitudes. 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. What do the yellow triangles mean?

Cheers from Italy, gg. Of my notes so far, I would rate this particular thing as the highest priority to clarify.

This includes spring coils and slinkies, electromagnetic fields recorded with guitar pickups, neonodium magnets, motors, servos, gadgets and gizmos, metal impacts and underwater metal impacts, wobble boards, car doors, washing machines, sewing machines, dumpsters, bungee cords, elastics, slingshots, balloons, wine glasses, chairs, winds dragging bags on carpets etc. It goes right away in Kyma and returns on a record track within Pro Tools.


I record in real time a long performance that I cut on picture afterwards. Thanks Lematt for the tips. When you find an interesting orototypes, click on the camera button to save it as a new preset.

In the Virtual Control Surface, you can choose from a list of presets. If I have several unrelated yellow triangled sounds in the sound browser, when I refresh the browser it seems I have to save all or none.

I found interesting with Kyma how the vocoder could be clear and bright when you turn a lot of band-pass filters on. The entire chain is evaluated on every sample, so adding a module does not increase the delay through the processing chain.

The timeline automatically mixes down or up to whatever number or placement of speakers you specify in the preferences. Building your own blocks. Ptototypes, 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.

Click the selector button to try out an effect on a sample from your own library.

Do you think a forward reference would be helpful there? Jean-Edouard Miclot June 18th, Audition a sound by pressing the play button. Just started using Kyma. Click the microphone button to try out an effect on the live audio input.

To apply an effect to a Sound in the timeline, simply drag prototyles module from the palette at the top of the screen or from the Sound Browser, and drop it onto the sound in the timeline.

Thanks a lot in advance and keep coming with these!

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


If I go to refresh the browser it asks me whether I want to save or discard changes. Drag modules from the Prototypes into your own custom signal flow diagrams. Brad Hillman August 28th, 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.

Try to delay a sound under 30 ms and add a bit of feedback to it. Everything runs in series but each block has his own bypass toggle. Click here to cancel reply. You can also record your Virtual Control Surface and MIDI fader moves, or extract a frequency or amplitude envelope from an audio signal and use it as a controller. For live performance, you can insert WaitUntil markers to give the performer control over when or how fast time should move forward, thus freeing them from the necessity of a click track.

Where is the best place for tutorial projects? Thanks for the free scapes sound bank and I just saw transform so will probably buy that too Keep up the good work! The Pacarana connects to your laptop or desktop computer via FireWire. Sounds are organized in categories, and there is a Find command to help you search. 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 my own sounds.

This was a very good learning experience that opened my mind on what a sound actually is: Virtual Control Surface Interface. Just wanna comment that you have a very nice websiteI love the pattern it actually stands out.

Invites me to “use one sound as an input to another” which I was dying to prototypfs, but I had no idea how to. Hi J-ed, would be great see some of the sounds as a post!
