Kasina – it’s almost here!

MindPlace has formally announced the Kasina… http://www.mindplacesupport.com/foru…-media-system!

In case it isn’t evident, Kasina is an incredibly feature-rich and software-supported AVS device. While other devices have one or two unique points, usually more aesthetic/practical than functional, Kasina has focused on AVS technology first and a very pleasing package second.

At this stage I will be happy to answer any questions about Kasina to which I have an answer. The new Kasina forum at MindPlace… http://www.mindplacesupport.com/foru….php?30-Kasina is the official support and Q&A venue.

I can also make available the MuLab presets for those who wish to get a head start on this new mode of session creation.

      Hi Leandro,

      Here’s a DropBox link to the current versions. Each MuLab Mux has a brief manual.

      Detailed manuals and tutorials for MuLab can be found via http://mutools.com/mulab-support.html. These cover everything you need to know to make use of the Mux presets.

      Please consider yourself a beta tester of the Mux presets – let me know if anything doesn’t seem quite right – much appreciated.

    hi i am confuse now i cant find de exe file on the dropbox link thanks again

    • CraigT  On November 29, 2013 at 10:27 am

      There is no exe – there are .mux and .wav files – these are used in MuLab, which can be downloaded from mutools.com. The quickstart in the manual offers a quick way to get started with each preset once MuLab is installed.

    Hi Craig

    Interested in the Kasina but trying to wrap my brain around what the Kasina will do for me the my Micro Mini that I just got a year and half ago does..

    Anyway you could do a brief compare and contrast between the units.. I read the Description of the Kasina several times and scratch my head after reading it and say ok so what’s so new or great or revolutionary about it vs other recent units.. Not trying to sound negative or anything but from the little I have read about it, I cant see the reason to spend another $349 and I just spent $300 on my mini not that long ago..

      Hi Rodney,

      The Kasina is everything that the MBM is (an excellent AudioStrobe decoder plus a whole bunch more…
      6-color fully independent left/right RGB light control – full color for each eye using the new SpectraStrobe system.
      Color Organ – Kasina will add lights to whatever you play off the uSD, through the aux audio or USB audio.
      Synth – yet to be developed to its full potential (firmware upgrades are a wonderful thing), the Kasina can execute its own sounds and lights using the KBS in a manner more akin to the traditional synthesiser AVS device (Procyon or suchlike).
      Other than that, the MBM is a one-piece, one-cable package, the Kasina still has two cables from console to head. MBM requires an audio source, Kasina is an MP3/WAV player.
      No currently available AVS device has significantly more ability to “do the business” of AV stimulus than any other – it’s just a matter of how rich, rewarding and enjoyable the experience might be.
      And then… for some collecting AVS devices has become part of the pleasure – each has its own unique qualities. Kasina just happens to have more qualities than most 🙂
      Some good discussion of such things (different sessions types, for example) is beginning to evolve over at the MindPlace.
