Older Kyma sounds that I can't get to work

+1 vote
I have here an older Kyma sound called 03-Logic.kym (Pete Johnstons DSP mods version V).

I would love to do something with these logic 'prototypes' but trying to open these I get this:

The uSound class named "-----" doesn't extist. What does this mean and how do I get these logic 'modules' into Kyma?

I'm on Windows 10 64 bits, Kyma 7.10f2

Thanks in advance,

Hi Roland,

Those are Microsounds which Pete coded on his own. They are not supported anymore on the Pacarana. Any particular module you are interested? Most of them can be "re-build" I guess...

Hi Gustav,

Thanks for answering. All logic modules can be used to construct impressive things. I found a way to construct Boolean switches in the Kyma archive as well.

What sound(file) has that example of using Boolean switches?  I haven't crossed paths with it yet..
Hi T-J,

This is a SC sound called "Logic examples".
Go to your sound browser type it in the find menu.
(I can't put an attachment here).
Found it ! Thanks :-)
There used to be an sdk with the capybara if i remember correctly, i don't know why this doesn't exist anymore. But having people from the communnity bring extra modules to the system could only be beneficial so i don't know why this is not allowed anymore..Microsounds is such an example, and although i've never had the chance to use them, it seems that many did and appreciated them...
It's on our list (it's a non-trivial project; otherwise it would be done already).
"i don't know why this doesn't exist anymore": it's because the Capybara 320 microsounds were written in 56k assembly language so they cannot be run on the new hardware.
That's great news! For sure this must be a lot of work...

Good news, thanks!

And sorry for this trivial question. :)
