Kyma X is the Editors' Choice for 2005!

Electronic Musician Magazine Names Kyma X Best Sound Design Workstation of 2005

CHAMPAIGN, IL—January 3, 2005—The editors of Electronic Musician magazine have just named Kyma X, the best sound design workstation and one of the 25 Hottest New Products of the Year. Kyma has won this honor twice before (once for Kyma 4.5 in 1998 and again in 2001 for Kyma.5). The 2004 release, Kyma X, drew the attention of the editors based on an elegant new look, a new 432 page book of never-before-documented Kyma secrets, a new editor where users can create their own Tools, and substantial changes in the underlying structure that made it possible for Kyma to run under Mac OS X and Windows XP.

According to Electronic Musician,

Kyma X, the newest release of what has been called "the most powerful sound-design workstation on the planet," is so full of new and updated features that it was the hands-down winner in this year's voting. Not only does the new version sport a dramatically improved user interface, new sound-processing modules, and a massively updated user's manual, but it also has enhancements throughout nearly every main area of the program.

Their conclusion:

If you haven't yet heard Kyma X, you can start with the excellent online examples on Symbolic Sound's Web site. But be forewarned, you might get hooked!
