How do I power Kyra on and off?

Check if the power supply is connected and powered. Then press the two buttons near the power symbol, Octave Transpose <- and -> simultaneously for 2 seconds. Then, Kyra will power up within a few seconds.

To switch Kyra off, please press and hold both Octave Transpose buttons until Kyra powers down. Do not pull the power cable or disconnect mains power while Kyra is switched on as this can result in data loss.


The specs on Kyra look impressive, can I really use everything simultaneously?

Kyra is based on an FPGA, a programmable logic array. This means that you can use all features of Kyra at the same time. So - yes, you can use ALL the oscillators, modulations, filters etc. simultaneously. Good luck... and watch that you're not getting knocked off your feet.


How can I use Kyra as an audio interface?

Please refer to page of the manual at the chapter "System Configuration". Kyra plays each of the Parts via USB to the computer in stereo. Also, Kyra can play back a stereo stream from the computer.
