KYMA DSP STATUS : audio I/O : track 16 OK
             MIDI  I/O : track 16 OK
KYMA clock source : internal (as first reference, but optical seems to works also ?)
CONFIGURE MIDI : default channel 1
show MIDI messages : NOTHING !! no MIDI SIGNAL it seems.

TES PROTOTYPE
MIDI VOICE from MIDI file :

There is a software or wire problem, that i do not understand.
No MIDI signal come in the KYMA…

Thanks for the details!

Even though ProTools shows the Track16 as a MIDI destination, the Pacarana is controlling the Track16 (not PT). Do you have a 5-pin MIDI output on your Mac HD I/O? Could you route MIDI by a cable from that interface to the Track16?

Another approach might be to use Delora software's Kyma Connect to create a virtual MIDI destination on your Mac that can forward MIDI to your Pacarana over Ethernet.
