    I have a Kyma Paca which I’ve used successfully on both a Macbook Air and an older Windows 10 PC.

    Recently, I’ve upgrade my PC and I’m getting memory errors on the Paca. I’m using a Berhringer FCA1616 audio interface. I am not using a pen or touch input

    I am using the recommended Syba firewire audio card (which worked well on my last PC).

    2 Firewire 800 cables are connected to the Syba card in the PC. One goes to one of the firewire 800 jacks in the Kyma, the other connects to the Behringer (with a 400 plug on that end of the cable).
    There is no firewire cable in the second 800 jack on the Kyma and there is no Firewire cable running from the Kyma to the Behringer. I tried that configuration but using the Paca as a host caused some irregular connections with the PC.

    The problem I’m having is that I’m unable to load even small sounds as I get an out of real time pop-up warning. When the software boots and just idles without running a sound, the red “Out of Memory Error” warning shows up in the DSP window.

    I occasionally get an “The paca is not responding. Unhandled Firewire Bus Reset or a firewire error.”

    My paca at startup connects and the software confirms:

    2 processors with 4gbytes of memory

    sample rate is 44.1 khz

    The PC is now an AMD Ryzen 3800x 8-core processor 3.89GHz
    31.9 GB of ram
    Windows 10

    I replaced all the firewire cables and even bought and installed a new Syba firewire card and nothing has changed.

    Any ideas what the cause might be?

    Side note – the memory on the Paca never gets above 25% usage. I don’t think it’s the paca, but something with the DSP for the firewire. Changing volume levels causes the system to freeze as well.
