I record to disk and only some sound files are recognized by kyma, the others are invisable to Kyma! Although I can see and play the missing files with every other sound editing software I have.

I recorded timelines to disk. I can see that my recordings are kyma aiff files perfectly playable but I can't see some of those files through the sound browser. I 've only encountered this problem two days ago.

When you first make a recording, the files will not show up in the browser until you click the Refresh button (or until you close the folder containing those files and then reopen the folder to refresh the list). Is it possible that this might be the explanation for why they did not show up in this case?

-- CarlaScaletti - 13 Oct 2004

Unfortunately no. I ve refreshed, open and closed the folders several times and restarted. I ve tried also OSX and it's the same! I 'll keep making further recordings and I 'll let you know.

Chris, please make a short example recording and email it to us. (Does it say .aif after the name? Is there more than one dot (.) in the name?)

-- CarlaScaletti - 13 Oct 2004

I've made some short recordings to send you but thay behave normally in the sound browser. Then I tried to open the recordings that I still have a problem playing back by going to File and then open any openable file where at last I saw the files and when I clicked I received the following message: Kyma encountered this unexpected condition: Operating System Error

-- ChrisParmenidis - 14 Oct 2004

Chris, please compress the "Jam 2" file (either with StuffIt? or by right-clicking on the file and making an archive of the file), and email it to us so that we can track down this problem. Thanks!

This file is about 600 mb should i burn you a cd rom?

-- ChrisParmenidis - 14 Oct 2004

OK, please send it by physical mail. Thanks!

Your CDs with the AIFF files arrived here yesterday, and we were able to track down the problem in Kyma. The problem had to do with the way Kyma was handling very large AIFF files. We have fixed this for the next update to Kyma (Kyma X 6.1).
