Hello dear Kyma users,
I hope someone may be able to help.
I have just upgraded my old Capybara 320 running Kyma X to a Paca and Kyma 7.
So I bought myself an apogee ensemble firewire to use with the Paca.
However, it seems that the ensemble is not compatible with the Paca and Kyma 7.
Even though, it's listed as a one of the officially compatible interfaces by Symbolic Sound?
So I'm wondering if someone out there using an apogee ensemble with Paca and Kyma 7 can help me here?
I have tested the apogee ensemble + Paca with my Mac mini running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6, with my PC running WIndows 10, and with my Macbook Pro running Mac OS 10.14.5.
Kyma 7 starts fine and detects the Paca fine in all the three computers.
But the apogee interface gets 'rejected' as soon as I select it on Kyma 7 on any of my 3 computers.
It's very frustrating because I haven't been able to use the Paca since I bought it three weeks ago.
The Ensemble works perfectly well with both of my macs (even without the apogee drivers or maestro installed on them).
Ableton Live detects the interface seamlessly and I can select any of the 18x IO's, change the clock, etc from Ableton with no problem at all.
Of course, I make sure the ensemble is not selected on the Audio/MIDI Preferences of my mac when I try to connect it to Kyma.
But interestingly, the same thing happens on my PC running Windows 10..
I'm using quality firewire cables (Belkin and Lindy, billingual FW), and I have even bought brand new cables to test with the system.
I have even bought a belkin firewire hub, but the ensemble keeps being rejected as soon as I select it on Kyma 7.
The Paca connects and disconnects to the interface as maniac (showing flashing messages on the front panel).
Sometimes the ensemble connects fine with the Paca, and I can even see the ensemble showing on the paca front panel.
But as soon as I select it on Kyma 7, the dsp freaks out and disconnects from the host computer, showing a firewire error 22 message on Kyma 7.
So, I don't know what is causing the problem.
I'm using the latest version of Kyma (7.25f0 - 11th June).
Can someone using an ensemble with Kyma 7 give me some advice please?
I sent several emails to Symbolic Sound but I haven't received response from them yet.
