Re: argh... my head hurts...

Hello JARA
no doubt about the choice, Eventide or(and) Kyma!!! I would consider 
for its double dsp power, 8ins/8outs and quad audio modules, like mixers, 
PITCH SHIFTING: NO WAY!!! Eventide has the best! Don't even consider 
Digitech toys:once you'll hear it everything will sound different for your 
ears. New software V2.705 allows Orville to have 24 voices of chromatic, 
diatonic or reverse shifting, with 2 seconds delay each!!!
Building a patch matrix with  delays users can add even more delay to 
them!!! Sound quality is PRISTINE CLEAR ! ! ! No HopE elsewhere.
Kyma is a monster workstation!!! Great at any kind of Synthesis and 
sampling...love its granular synthesis!!! If you need hi quality verbs it 
could be a long thing to do though and I'm not sure if you can get the 
Orville's quality. But still we're talking GREAT systems! If you work at 
home Kyma can be a pleasure...I wouldn't dare to go LIVE with it! Orville 
gives you more REAL TIME approach to everything. With Kyma it seems you 
to plan things more ahead of time. Still Kyma can do things that Orville 
DOESN'T KNOW at all!
Choice depends on your working way and feeling for the 2 different 
I wish I had both! If I had them, still I would go live ONLY with Orville.
You can do extensive vocals and gtr processing at the same time with it, 
problem! You can even superimpose aspects of one audio source on the 
interactive processing...Kyma does that too and much more. I don't know 
about preamps! I love what you can do with Orville and I'd like to know 
about it from Kyma users!
Lucky you didn't get a DSP4000! It's a great unit! I worked with it for 5 
years but today it just won't fit more extended and experimental uses & 
The gtr sound you heard in my mp3 is a crunchy preamp into a pitch shifter 
with an lfo controlling pitch vibrato, switched by a footcontroller...gtr 
played wit E-bow. All in 1 dsp Orville, working at about 35% of its total 
power!!! Huge room for more activity.            ciao Italo
