installing a wormhole

Is there any documentation about installing a wormhole? Maybe I've overlooked something.

From memory you just need to have the two processors daisy chained with a pair of normal network cables and only one audio interface - you wont get extra output channels in a wormhole by 'combining' audio IO devices, you cant combine them, only the processors.

Fire them both up before you launch Kyma and when it all works right you get a different startup sound and extra processors reported in the DSP status (it's also full of stars ;)

Yes, it is a fantastic universe of sound which opens for you with the beautiful sentence "...stabilizing the event horizon" :)

If you are connecting only two Paca(rana)s, you can use a pair of standard gigabit Ethernet cables (connect port A to port A and B to B).  However, if you are connecting three or more devices, please ask us for orange cables; they are wired differently from standard Ethernet cables and you would connect each Paca(rana)'s A port to its neighbor's B port.

Are there any Kyma setups I have to consider? I know that it is better to increase the I/O Delay to 14 ms in a wormhole, right?
Yes, you may need to increase the I/O delay for some high-channel-count audio interfaces and you must connect the audio I/O to the same Paca(rana) that is connected to your computer.
Thank you very much.
