Symbolic Sound Launches New Website to Coincide with Kyma X Release

New site features hierarchical navigation, search engine, and an expanded online community

CHAMPAIGN, IL—January 15, 2004—Symbolic Sound today announced a major website renovation to coincide with the widespread release of Kyma X. Located at, the new site features a minimalist design, hierarchical navigation links, enhancements to the online support area, and a search engine.

“We went online with our first website in 1995 and, over the next 9 years. it had expanded and grown into a massively interconnected web,” said Symbolic Sound president Carla Scaletti. "When beta tester Ben Phenix saw the hierarchical signal flow diagrams in Kyma X, they reminded him of the structure of a website. He emailed me a mockup of his concept of using a signal flow graph as a navigation element, and I liked it enough to go ahead with totally revampling our site."

A few highlights from the list of new features and enhancements include:


Symbolic Sound revolutionized the audio industry in 1990 with the introduction of the Kyma™ graphical modular software sound design environment and the software-reconfigurable Capybara™ multi-processor sound computation engine. Symbolic Sound is committed to bringing the most advanced and flexible sound design technology to sound designers, musicians, educators, researchers, and creative professionals through its innovative hardware and software offerings.
