Kyma Control is the Swiss-army-knife of controllers for the Kyma Sound Design Workstation, providing four of the most popular Kyma controller-modes in one, wireless multi-touch package: a bi-directional mirror of Kyma's Virtual Control Surface, a multi-touch pen/tablet controller, a standard and a Tonnetz keyboard, accelerometer controls, and compass heading for using direction as a control.

For use in the studio, on stage, in the lab, at home, or in classroom, Kyma Control frees you from having to sit in front of your laptop; put yourself inside the sound field and perform your Sounds in an expressive, intuitive manner using your hands and gestures.


• Auto-mapping, bi-directional multi-touch mirroring of Kyma's Virtual Control Surface (VCS)
• View and select the active Sounds in a Kyma Multigrid
• Pen/tablet surface tracking as many as 11 fingers with color trails to help you track finger position
• A keyboard for sending !KeyDown and either continuous or discrete values for !KeyPitch & !KeyTimbre
• A Tonnetz pitch-space with configurable vertical and horizontal intervals
• Pitches can be rounded to equal tempered pitch, rounded only on !KeyDown and continuously variable after that, or, in Strum-mode, triggered when your finger passes by the key
• Trigger or control Sounds with the iPad's accelerometer measurements in the X, Y, Z directions, as well as controls corresponding with Pitch, Roll and Yaw
• Compass heading from the iPad's magnetometer tells you which way the iPad is pointing so you can use it for panning and other controls


• iPad, iOS 5 or newer
• Symbolic Sound Kyma 7 (or newer) with Paca(rana) Sound Computation Engine
• WiFi connection to network accessible to the Paca(rana)

Ratings and Reviews

The only way to control Kyma


I've been using this since I got my paca last winter, and it's incredible. Not a gorgeous looking app, but effective and very well though-out. If you're running kyma, then this is a necessity. 👍

Instant Gratification

A must for all Kyma users - step away from your computer and enjoy manipulating all your sonic creations in any position you please! A wealth of control options in one place - a wireless appendage of your Kyma system...

A dream come true

Kyma Control is just what I have been dreaming of: instant tactile control over Kyma. Sure, the MotorMix was great, but having a 1:1 mirrored VCS on the iPad is far more intuitive. Before this, I was forced to painstakingly recreate my VCS panels using TouchOSC (which is still pretty terrific). However, Kyma Control removes the toil and let's me get on with making music and sounds. The VCS control alone would have earned Kyma Control high marks, but the performance controllers are equally useful. The tablet controller in particular benefits from the multi-touch iPad screen.

I'm using Kyma Control with Delora's PacaConnect software, and have had no troubles at all. Setup was quick and easy. A good pairing. Symbolic Sound have always provided their customers with an ever-growing tool kit and Kyma Control is a fine example of the thought and effort they put into their products.
