Description
Congratulations! You now own one of the world's most sophisticated digital musical instruments: the Kawai K5 Digital Multi-Dimension Synthesizer. With its advanced capabilities and superior sound quality, the K5 is an exceptional investment in digital synthesis technology. It will give you many years of musical enjoyment.

A POWERFUL APPROACH TO SOUND SYNTHESIS

The Kawai K5 offers all the sound-creating power of additive synthesis technology in an affordable, user-friendly format. This enables you to construct sounds from their harmonic components, the same way they are created in nature. With the K5, you can control the relative amplitude of up to 126 harmonic sine waves! This yields unprecedented clarity and accuracy for recreating natural sounds or developing your own unique timbres. And, because it is so natural, the KS's programming system will be easy for you to master. But that's just the beginning. The complex waveforms produced by harmonic manipulation can be passed through filters, amplifiers, LFOs, envelope generators and other processors with which you may already be familiar. These provide the kind of precise articulation control for which analog synthesizers are well-known. So you're getting the best of both worlds -- digital clarity and analog control in one comprehensive, performance-oriented package.

OTHER FEATURES

Large fluorescent LCD provides readable, helpful graphic programming assistance.
