The Symbolic Sound Capybara is a machine that lets you graphically string together unlimited-length chains of processing and synthesis modules and run them with zero latency on a dedicated multiprocessor computer with little or no impact on your main computer's memory or processing capabilities. You can expand the processing capabilities of your hardware transparently, simply by plugging in more processing cards, because the machine was designed from the outset with scalability and multiple processors in mind. You never have to sacrifice sound quality just because you're trying to squeeze more real time processing out of your desktop or laptop computer. Features include FireWire, timecode, MIDI, 8 channels of 24-bit 100 kHz audio and a symbolic, blue LED on the front panel. It is controlled by the award-winning Kyma software with cutting-edge algorithms like granular processing, real-time analysis/resynthesis, aggregate synthesis, and spectral morphing.
