The KymaConnect 2.0.0 BETA 6 adds support for macOS 16.0 “Big Sur” and includes for the first time native operation on Apple Silicon Macs. This release was built with the latest releases of the macOS tools and SDK. The application binary is in Apple’s “Universal Binary” format that places native executables for both Intel and Apple Silicon processors in the same application bundle. macOS will automatically choose the Intel version if your Mac has an Intel processor, or select the Apple Silicon version if you have one of the new Macs with the M1 processor.
KymaConnect 2.0 is a major new version of KymaConnect. If you have used KymaConnect in the past you will find a number of new features. Improvements include:
- macOS 10.14 “Mojave", macOS 10.15 “Catalina", and macOS 16.0 “Big Sur” support.
- 64-bit operation.
- Native operation on Apple Silicon Macs.
- Four additional external MIDI device slots, bringing the total number to eight.
- Enhanced MIDI routing, including selectable routing between external MIDI devices on a device-by-device basis.
- Additional MIDI filtering options.
- A new virtual MIDI port, Haken2Kyma, for dedicated use with the Haken Audio's Haken Editor.
- Support for IPv6 direct-to-Pacarana connections, and IPv6 local networks. This will reduce initial connection time in some situations.
- Designed for Kyma 7+ or 7++, and can use the same Ethernet connection to the Paca(rana).
KymaConnect 2.0 is "Paca(rana)-only". KymaConnect 2.0 does not have any dedicated Capybara functions or capabilities. KymaConnect 2.0 is designed for the most recent versions of macOS; it requires macOS 10.14 (Mojave) or macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
The download is a ZIP file containing the macOS installer. The installer, and the KymaConnect application, have both been notarized by Apple, a requirement for installing on macOS Catalina.
We also recommend that you verify that the installer is authentic before using. See Q&A: How do I verify that the KymaConnect 2 installer is authentic? You can also download a PDF containing the same information from How To Verify The KymaConnect 2 BETA Installer
You must have a valid KymaConnect 1.0 license to use the KymaConnect 2.0 BETA. If you already have KymaConnect, version 1.0, installed on your Mac KymaConnect 2.0 BETA will recognize that license; you should not need to re-enter your license. If you are installing on a Mac that does not have KymaConnect version 1.0 installed then you will need the license key you received with your original KymaConnect order.
Note that BETA releases are time-limited. The deadline is shown at the top of the KymaConnect preference pane. The most recent BETA can be download from here.
This BETA replaces the original KymaConnect 1.0. If you wish to revert to using KymaConnect 1.0 you will have to reinstall it.
KymaConnect 2.0’s logging support has changed from KymaConnect 1. Do not change the logging level from “Minimal” unless instructed! The "Minimal" setting has low impact on KymaConnect 2.0 performance. Higher levels increase processor load and may introduce latency.
