Kyma Sound Design Software Now Available as a Universal Binary for Intel Macs

Kyma as much as 3.3 times faster on MacBook Pro Laptops

CHAMPAIGN, IL—April 6, 2006—Symbolic Sound Corporation announces that Kyma X.32 (released on 13 March 2006) is a Universal Binary that runs on the new Intel-based Macs as well as on PowerPC-based Macs and Intel-based PCs running Windows.

This is good news for Mac laptop users: Kyma runs as much as 3.3 times faster on the MacBook Pro than it does on the popular 1 GHz G4 PowerBook.

Symbolic Sound's Kyma sound design software is known for its sound transformation capabilities and is used by sound designers for film, music, game development, and advertising (listen, for example, to radio advertisements created in Kyma by Pete Johnston).

Kyma running on a MacBook Pro offers a speedier alternative for laptop musicians and sound designers.
