“Grab a great bargain. Symbolic Sound’s ‘Capybara 320′ Computation Engine with Kyma
I have just moved from Ibiza where I purchased the above Kyma X, Capybara new. This has only been used a few times.
It cost me $5000, seven years ago when I had it shipped to Ibiza.” Link

Kyma @ 14 January 2014, Comments Off


This is the original Capybara 320 – not the older Capybara. As such it contains all the hardware interfaces the newest units are lacking. Comes with KYMA software and all licenses. 100% compatible with the latest KYMA X release and enjoy compatibility across all units. The Capybara 320 sits about halfway between the PACA and Pacarana units in terms of computation power when fully expanded. So this gets you in the door for a fraction of the price – while giving you the superiority of the Capybara’s converters – which are, in my opinion, superior to my Apogee Rosetta’s (a big claim I know – but you have to hear it for yourself!). The other fantastic advantage of the Capybara is that all the processing and AD/DA conversion is done on board and not in your computer’s CPU – giving it a level of real time dependability and convenience you just can’t match with the newer units.

If you’re looking at this listing – I’m sure you’re familiar with the unit’s capabilities, power and commercial credits. it will take you FAR beyond any commercially available synthesizer or synthesis program/engine. As far as you want to go. if you can imagine it – you can do it in the Capybara 320.

Condition is nearly spotless and also operationally flawless. This is one of the nicest, mint condition units you will ever see. ZERO rack rash, zero scratches. Comes with four DSP processors. That’s more than some of the most advanced sound computation and processing engines currently available – including flagship items from Kurzweil, Access (virus), Eventide, you name it.

Comes with Kyma X user guide (new, sealed) and ALL cables, firewire interface, rack ears, and box.” Link

“Here it is. A flawless Kyma Capybara 320 with Symbolic Sound Factory Firewire Interface, factory power supply, KYMA X disk and KYMA X Revealed Manual. This unit and serial # are registered with Kyma, documentation included. This is the original Capybara 320 – not the older Capybara. This is the standard four processor Kyma. As such it contains all the hardware interfaces the newest units are lacking. Comes with KYMA software and all licenses. 100% compatible with the latest KYMA X release and enjoy compatibility across all units.

The Capybara 320 can be used as a standalone multi-channel AD/DA converter for incredible fidelity.The Capybara and other units can be used as high end multi channel effects processors. Compare my pics to other listings. This is the nicest. Comes with four DSP processors. Kyma X is an incredibly flexible and powerful sound design environment being used in music and post-production studios, research labs, art installations, game developers’ studios, educational institutions, home studios, and live performances. A sound library with over 1000 pre-packaged examples means you can start creating amazing sounds straight out of the box. Extensive documentation, online knowledge bases and free email/phone support ensure that you’ll be able to take Kyma anywhere your imagination inspires you to go!

I don’t want to sell this but I need VJ software for and upcoming performance so I need to sell. I’ll do whatever I can to get you cogged in with your serial number and up and running with the Symbolic Sound community. You can transfer the serial number to your name for $24 and receive technical support and some upgrade offers. I don’t have the original factory boxes but it will ship in equivalent. ” Link

” Hello for sale is this awesome Kyma Capybara 320 system in great condition and excellent working order. It runs of Australian power so no step down converter needed. It has been running well on my Mac OSX 10.7 system with the free Kyma X Update from Symbolic sounds website. It also works in Windows XP.

This is a fully functioning system with the flame firewire card, original Kyma X CD and the huge manual in printed format.
This system has been upgraded with an extra optional Analog / digital Ins and outs on the back.

It also has two extra Expansion cards inside so you can use some of the bigger projects that use alot of CPU power from within Kyma X application.

This is a regretful sale as it is one awesome sounding unit and I haven’t really mastered it due to no time. As I need the funds I will have to let this one go.

This is thing is a sampler synths, grain synth, effects processor anything you can imagine and used to be very expensive in the days. It has been used on various movies like Starwars etc as you can get some weird, grainy, loopy, harmonic, pitchy sounds with it as well if you so desire hehe.” Link

“If you are looking at this, you know what it is.
Capybara 320, with Rack Mount Lugs installed in Pristine Condition, Everything Working as New.

This is the basic Capy config:

4 Motorola 56309 DSPs
96 MB sample RAM
12 expansion slots
I/O and external sync (see below)
External desktop or rackmount case (protects the DSPs and converters from the electrically noisy environment inside your personal computer, and leaves valuable slot-space free to use for other cards on your host computer)

Included with the unit, as shown in the pictures: Kyma FireWire 400 Interface, Kyma FW 400 <-> Capy Interface Cable, Kyma Interface Power Supply, Digital Input and Output Cables, Kyma Revealed Manual, Kyma 4.5 Demo and Software CD’s, Capybara Power Cord.

As you probably already know, when you purchase this Capy, you will need to register the unit with Symbolic Sound, which will entitle you to the latest software updates and membership in the Kyma community and access to the WIKI (they call it the Tweaky). Not enough good things can be said about the resources in the Kyma WIKI, the folks at Symbolic Sound and in the User Community.

“Wer sich für dieses Ding interessiert weiß im Normalfall was es ist.

Die Capybara funktioniert einwandfrei, und kann Dinge die einzigartig sind. Ein wunderbarer Einstieg in die Kyma-Welt. Ich kann hier leider nicht ausführen was dieses Ding alles kann, aber lasst euch gesagt sein, wer anders klingen will ist hier genau richtig. Bitte schaut für Details im Netz nach. Autechre, Aphex Twin uvm.haben Kyma sehr viel benutzt und das hört man auch. Ob realtime FX processing im Studio oder Sounddesign, die Kyma ist ein Monster…Wegen zu wenig Zeit abzugeben.

Ich empfehle die Symbolicsound Seite im Netz.

Zustand:

Die Capybara läuft ohne Probleme und ist in sehr gutem kosmetischen Zustand.” Link

“Symbolic Sound Kyma Capybara 320 DSP Audio Workstation.

Expanded DSP & RAM (4 DSPs on the standard unit plus 2 additional DSPs on the installed expansion card).

Bought new by me direct from Symbolic Sound. Home use only, fully working, some slight marks on the top of the unit but clean front panel and no damage..

This is still arguably the pinnacle of audio design systems and runs the current version of Kyma (as still being developed for the Paca and PacaRana hardware).
The difference being that the Capybara 320 has its own very high quality audio I/O which many users prefer to the 3rd party audio interfaces that the Paca & PacaRana require.” Link

“This unit was used by Sasha’s Engineer. It comes with the Firewire connection unit and x2 expansion cards which gives you 6 processors and 192mb Ram.

It has the legendary 32-100Khz/24 Bit Sound interface which the newer Pacarana interfaces lack.

If you have managed to find this listing you will know what this device can do. Think Wall-E, Ben Burtt, Amon Tobin’s latest ISAM album and you will envisage a complete sound design environment. This is state of art and there is nothing else out there that comes close in terms of Macro sound-design.

Its very complicated with a learning curve of 1-2 years to truly master its features.

Its more of a sound-design/sculpting tool than one that lends itself naturally to composition. A foley recording artist may also be interested.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Unfortunately I have to sell my awesome Kyma Capybara 320 System with original manual and software cd. Upgrades are free on symbolic sounds website and support is outstanding. I have been using this with the latest Mac OSX Lion and latest software update from Symbolic sounds. This is in great condition and a sound designers dream. Please note that I will include the Kyma firewire interface but the firewire interface is not working. This suits someone who has a Paca or Pacarana and wants to use the excellent ins and outs of this unit as a front end or someone who has a working Kyma firewire interface or PCI card. I did contact Symbolic Sounds and they are happy to have a look at the firewire unti so not all is lost. I just don’t have the time to arrange all this. But if you are keen then they are very very helpful ! The Capybara 320 itself is in excellent condition and works fine. Never had a problem with it when the firewire interface worked.” Auction ended.

“Included in this auction are:

(1) Full Size Haken Continuum Fingerboard
(that’s right- FULL SIZE!)
(1) Symbolic Sound Capybara 320 and Kyma X

All cabling, manuals, and discs are included as well as the Capybara Firewire Interface and a standard Hard Case for the Continuum.

Used only in my homes studio, I’ve recently moved and don’t have the space for all the toys!
Everything looks as if it were fresh out of the box with no functional or cosmetic issues to disclose. No wear on the Continuum playing surface.
Continnum is an early model without internal sounds but can be upgraded reasonably through Haken. I only used it with the Capybara, Kontakt and Ableton on my laptop.
Original cost for this system was well over 10k.
A great deal for any alternate controller fan, sound designer, or synthesist.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

Used in a climate controlled, smoke free studio, this audio effects and synthesis unit will work with any current Mac or PC unit that has a firewire400 port. Includes the 19″ rackmountable main Capybara 320 and power cable, firewire-400 cable, flame interface for computer connection and power adapter, Kyma X book, Kyma X install CD, current Kyma X software update for Windows 98/2000/Vista/7 and MacOS10.5/10.6 as well as a Motormix (moving fader) MIDI remote control and power cable (Kyma X automatically populates synthesis controls onto this remote). In short this is a complete Kyma X Capybara320 setup that cost 3500USD a couple of years ago. The Capybara 320 has 4 digital and analog outputs as well as MIDI in/out/thru and word clock sync (which when used kills digital jitter artifacts). For 4000+USD, the new paca and pacarana do not come with any means of producing audio or MIDI directly (additional interfaces have to be bought and connected). If you are considering a new paca or pacarana then this system is a great low-cost alternative! Pictures are from the unit being sold. Thanks for looking.” Auction ended.

It looks like it has 2 expansion cards too, leaving 10 slots free, so this really is a powerful beast.

for sale, is my much loved Kyma Paca, sound design/synthesizer engine, made by symbolic sound. it has only had about 4months of very light use, and is in completly “as new” condition, with all original packaging and documentation. i used it to add some “zing” while mixing some of australia’s leading tv shows, and are selling it to make way for another toy. it’s a great fun, but very deep machine, that challenges the whole way you think about sound design, plugins and synthesizers. if you are willing to do the work, you can literally create any sound, effect or instrument you want. the use of the hardware processor means that it can run on pretty much any computer, using very little CPU, while making immaculate quality sounds. ” Auction ended.
