What DC-Coupled interface does everyone prefer with Kyma?

0 votes
Over the past year, a colony of eurorack has been growing in my studio. I didn't notice it at first but now that it's up to like 300 hp, I've gotta get this under control!

Those of you using Kyma with modular gear, what's your preferred method for interfacing directly with Kyma? I'd like to have bidirectional control between my eurorack and Kyma. I'm currently using a focusrite saffire 14 interface for my paca—which has no optical I/O so i'm down to replace it if it'll work with an expert sleepers ES-3 — but if anyone has a better suggestion for DC-coupled interfaces to use with Kyma that are preferrably FW800, let me know!

I use an Motu Traveler Mk3 and a TC Konnekt 48 with my pacarana and my modular. The Traveler is DC Coupled and can be used without the ES-3. I prefer the Traveler when i am on the run over all the others i used in the past because it sounds excelent,  is robust, about the size of the Pacarana and has all the I/O i need with Kyma. I use the ES-3 over ADAT feed from on of my MOTU A16 via AVB which also works great for my DAW and another ES-3 directly from Kyma (Konnekt48 or TravelerMK3) Cheers Chris

I use an ES8 which is connected to my ultralite and mac (main computer soundcard) as a aggregate device. My Kyma soundcard is a MOTU track 16 which I bring in via ADAT. It would be great if the Expert Sleepers ES8 could work directly with the Pacarana though!
