I am getting repeated kernel panics. I have run many disk repair routines using Disk Utility and Techtool (6) but still happening. It seems to happen when I am using a particular application (Sonuus i2M Editor) which is a USB Pitch to MIDI converter.

The kernel panics are hard to know what if anything will help narrow this down...

I'd say the problem is that your app/hardware is crashing the OS. You should contact the vendor's support. I'm not especially skilled at deciphering crash reports; maybe someone else will be able to provide more info. –  CajunLuke Jun 23 '12 at 7:01
    
For your next Console dump try to remove your computer name. Replace "paulkimmel" with "username" or something. Of course only if you care about your privacy. Furthermore the thread named in the kernel panic is related to the i2M musicport device. According to their website their device is compatible with the Mac, so it should work ok. Did you update all the drivers/firmware? –  Bart Arondson Jun 23 '12 at 9:53
    
Looks like a driver is causing the problem....did you install anything recently? –  Samantha Catania Jun 23 '12 at 10:28

After contacting Sonuus, the software vendor has confirmed problem is with the app and is currently working on a bug fix.
