Continuum and kyma

0 votes
Hello kyma people,

hope you are all fine and had some nice chrismas days.

Iam just thinking about getting a continuum fingerboard in the future, mainly to control kyma . ofcourse I know it has a nice synthesis engine in it, wich is a whole universe to discover.  

To get an idea what is possible with the continuum in combination with kyma Iam curious how you use It - what you controll with it. Triggering notes, control velocity  etc is just one straight forward approach to use it. That could totally make sense.
But whats possible beyond that?

I appreciate your feedback and all kind of video and sound examples.

thanks in advanced.

You can control any parameters with the control signals from the Continuum. They are named !KeyPitch, !KeyVelocity, !KeyDown and !KeyTimbre, but those are just names; you can use them to control anything.

For example, this is a (10-year old) piece I did with the Continuum controlling the slipstick algorithms in Kyma.

as a performer using the Continuum togeher with Kyma since many, many years I would express it as following: you can shape your sound with your fingers and theirs sensitivity in every aspect far beyond triggering, pitch or velocity: only your creative fantasy sets the boundaries.Thus you have the ability to play Kyma sounds like natural instruments, producing very organic soundings. Since 2009 I made no concert using Kyma without Continuum ...
