   0 reviews  -  6170 views

    The Kawai 16-bit Digital Synthesizer SPECTRA KC10 uses advanced 16-bit and synthesized waveforms for optimum sound quality at an affordable price. And the unique function from KAWAI K series, such as MULTI patch and DRUM SECTION, allow you to create hi-quality musical performances.


    128 High Quality Internal Waveforms

    The SPECTRA KC10 has a total of 128 select-able wave combinations. Each combination is made from high-quality 16-bit PCM and DC (Digital Cyclic) waveforms.

    MULTI Play Capabilities

    4 SINGLE patches may be played at one time freely combining Layer and Split functions enabling a wide range of warm and expressive sounds.

    36 RHYTHM Patterns

    The SPECTRA KC10 contains 36 preset rhythm patterns, which are suitable for any kind of musical environment such as rock, pops, jazz, Latin and any others. These patterns come With INTRO/ENDING and FILL IN as well.


    This function allows you to play arpeggio patterns automatically, by pressing one chord 0n SPECTRA KC10's keyboard. There are many selectable forms (ex. UP, DOWN and RANDOM) which can also be used in SYNC with the rhythm patterns.


    The SPECTRA KC10 has its own DRUM SECTION which can be controlled independently from SINGLE patches or the 4 SECTlONs of a MULTI patch.

    Variable Multi-Timbral Operation

    In the MULTI PLAY Mode, each tone may be set to a specific MIDI channel, allowing the SPECTRA KC10 to function as though it were four MIDI tone generators. The variable Multi-Timbral function also allows the voice of each section to be played simultaneously.
