I 2nd that. This is actually a dream of mine and i thought it might happen with Kyma 7 which is already much more improved towards the live performer. Every day i am amazed by the new possibilities in Kyma 7. Espacially the multigrid made many things for me so much easier.
An USB “Kyma Stick” or even better a dedicated “SSC Firewire SSD” or FW Stick with your own pre-compiled live project files in the back of my Pacarana maybe with the addition of a simple selection menu on boot-up to select one of your projects for live would be fantastic.
Just connected a soundcard + MIDI/OSC controller or an iPad for KymaControl. That’ s it.
For editing in the hotel/studio a full featured general purpose laptop/computer with a keyboard and a mouse is perfect, but for performance i enjoy hardware buttons, faders, sliders,pads or keys. …
Personally for performances even a minimal single iPad with KymaControl would make more sense to me then the minimal current mouse/trackpad/wacom + laptop combination.
Actually the lack of standalone mode is why i bought an old Nord Modular G2 (again) for a new side project one week ago. Compared to Kyma the G2 is very limited when it comes to sound creation or real-time composing, but it is robust and can be used without my expansive full featured laptop computer.
Just my 5 cent…
All the best
The funny think is: Once i was playing a show and the Macbook crashed because the Apple FW <-> thunderbolt adapter got lose from heavy vibrations at the location where the laptop was standing.(Yeah i know i tape it now) But my Kyma live sound continued to run and still worked with all my parts. I could just controlled the Pacarana via a direct connected MIDI controller to the TC audio interface it was using.
