Re: Kyma as compared to MAX/MSP or Nord Modular

Same again, the potential is there to do anything, and that depends on your programming skills. Yeah, I had a long response I was going to write but this is what it boils down to, in my opinion, too. There are so many different languages and environments that it's worth trying out as many as you ca...

Re: Kyma as compared to MAX/MSP or Nord Modular

Interesting tutorial. It's a pity Google didn't turn up that tutorial back when I needed it. It's only been on Cycling 74 since last year. How does that filter sound? Not sure. Probably pretty neutral like a lot of the basic MSP objects. For 'character' and 'personality', some extra patching and/or...

Re: Kyma as compared to MAX/MSP or Nord Modular

Synth building tutorial for Max. No low level DSP knowledge required. http://www.cycling74.com/story/2007/8/20/111019/403 I think that DSP has a couple of different meanings these days. While I think you need to have an understanding of DSP and signal flow to use any digital synthesizer (soft or har...

Re: Kyma as compared to MAX/MSP or Nord Modular

I haven't used the Kyma, but the sounds it makes are fabulous. The sound design techniques it makes available are possible to do in MAX, but in the Kyma they've been programmed by folks who really know what they're doing. And I imagine it would be far more stable than MAX. I have used both and that...

Hi, Scroll all the way to the bottom. The ones listed on this page are what will be available first. Pretty much everything in the 'old' STS catalog will be available, eventually. http://www.serge-fans.com/m-class.html Regarding format, I'm not sure how to answer that. How about: Yes and no :lol: No...

That's a great one, James. You can really see the power distribution thingy more clearly, now. Something about Serge stuff makes me wish they were edible :oops:

Hi Joe,
Looks like 3-4 weeks before these deliver. I'd call him ASAP if you want to reserve one.

Hi James, Joe here. Looks quite nice!...Is the green patch cord coming form the power block for grounding? or can you still ground off of the PS2a? Thanks again... Joe Hi Joe, The grounding is done from the back of the distribution strip, I believe. The patch cord is connected to a jack for modulat...

Part of the reason is no doubt the fact that some of Serge's designs were inspired by Buchla and are 'west coast' in their orientation. Another part of the reason is due to many of the modules being comprised of multiple (sometimes simultaneous) functions and therefore a more general name is often a...
