Yes, I have one, but I don't use it much because of many reasons. It is superb. Do a search on Kyma and you'll find several topics.

I've been communicating with Sidx via PM at his request.

I am not familiar with Reload. I think is is difficult to identify what instrument is used on a recording. There are many ways to get a certain effect. Still, to my knowledge, there is no tool more powerful than a Kyma system. But, the most powerful instrument isn't always the most appropriate.

I'm reminded of a story that is very off-topic. A young guitarist loved a certain song of the famous Chet Atkins. He listened to the record over and over and learned how to play the guitar part note for note. One day, he met the great Atkins and played the song for him. He asked Chet if he was using the correct fingerings. Atkins was amazed. He said, "I can't believe it. I could never play that. I used an echoplex."

Sure Howard u right!
But i guess that your example with guitarist is a bit different.
At real i dont like Rob Zombie music and i took this example just because there is SAME effect like in Matrix movie...It just..strip a sound to harmonics...you think there are a lot of ways to do this?Don't sure...A am fanat of audio FX's So i hunting for this fx' recept a long time.I tryed a lot of software tools like a Hybrydiser,Granulizer,Glitch etc.Nothing.Maybe im stupid and ppl do this very easy but i not sure...I think its a Kyma or something like it.Thats why i realy want to try it and then to buy it,but here in Russia i m not sure somebody using it.

I suggest you write to Symbolic Sound and ask them if there is someone near you who has a system that would be willing to show it to you. That's how I saw one before I bought it. I had to travel 1000 KM, but it was worth the trip.

Strange. Of all companies I have ever dealt with, Kyma provides the best support. It is legendary. I'm sure they will connect with you soon, one way or the other.
