By default, the PacaBara (Capybara-320 when used as a Paca(rana) I/O) has 2 inputs and 6 outputs. To use this configuration, turn on the Capybara-320 and Paca(rana), start Kyma, and click OK when Kyma asks if you would like to use the Capybara-320 as your I/O. If you just want to use the Capybara-320 as the audio and MIDI I/O for your Paca(rana), you’re done!

If you would like to process the Capybara-320 inputs or outputs, or set up a different configuration of inputs and outputs, please follow the instructions below.

You can load a fixed patch into the Capybara to provide input and output plus optional processing for Pacarana inputs and outputs. For example, you could have your Capybara acting as an EQ or reverb on the I/O of Pacarana. To create a PacaBara with this custom configuration:

  1. In Kyma, use Select DSP from the DSP menu to select the Capybara-320 as your DSP
  2. Design the input and output processing patch using these Sounds to represent the virtual inputs and outputs, and play it
  3. Use Select DSP from the DSP menu to switch to the Paca(rana) (when it asks if you would like to use the Capybara as your I/O, say NO!)

The Paca(rana)-Capybara solution will have longer input-to-output delay than a Paca(rana)-direct-to-converter solution.

The Kyma FireWire Interface for the Capybara is limited to a total of 8 audio channels and 48 kHz sampling rate. This means that you can use any combination of input and output channels as long as the total is 8 or less: 2 in / 6 out, 4 in / 4 out, etc.
