Connect the Pacamara’s Ethernet port (second from the right) to your computer either directly, or indirectly through an Ethernet switch or router. If your computer does not have a gigabit Ethernet port, you can add one using an adapter that would attach to your computer by USB 3, USB-C, or Thunderbolt.
The Pacamara is delivered with a Cat 6 Ethernet cable; if you need to purchase a replacement, choose Cat 5e or Cat 6 (or better) Ethernet cable to guarantee high bandwidth gigabit-per-second transfer speeds.
- Point-to-point connection: plug one end of the supplied Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on the back of the Pacamara and the other end into your computer’s Ethernet port.
- Via an Ethernet switch or router: plug one end of the supplied Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on the back of the Pacamara and the other end into your Ethernet switch/router and make a similar connection between your computer’s Ethernet port and your Ethernet switch/router.
Choose the second configuration if the Pacamara will be a resource shared by several computers in your studio or if your computer connects to the Internet by Ethernet rather than Wi-Fi.
While the Pacamara is starting up, the ring light in the front panel button changes colors to indicate its progress. When the light flashes pale blue, it’s an indication that the Pacamara is waiting for a local Ethernet connection. Once a local Ethernet connection has been acquired, the light will stop flashing and will turn royal blue; once the light has turned solid blue, you can launch the Kyma software.
