Kawai  K3 

 



 


Hmmmm... do I know you? Would you be Roland JX8P's sister? He-he.

The K3 not only looks like the Roland, it also sounds like a crossbred of a JX8p and a DW-8000. But a crossbred with some deficiency in its genes. Even though the K3 is a nice, clean digital / VCF dreamy sounding synth, it lacks the depth, edge and the vitality of the aforementioned. And you will reach the limit of programmability very quickly.

Yet the fact that its programmable waveshapes, 7 shapes of the LFO, 7 chorus types, velocity & aftetouch keyboard, and MIDI functions can be had for around 150 bucks make it one of the sweetest, innocent synths in history.

I should also mention a curious conversation between me and my friend. He said he loves the K3 sound and finds it much more organic and attarctive than that of the Juno 106 / 60. I said it was funny because I would use those words and describe the situation exactly the other way around. I'm wondering to which group you belong.


Hmm.... czy my się znamy? Nie jesteś czasem bratem Rolanda JX8p? Hehe.
K3 nie tylko wygląda jak Roland, ale też brzmi jak krzyżówka pomiędzy JX8p i DW8000. Niestety krzyżówka z paroma wybrakowanymi genami. Jest to przyjemny, cyfrowy ton pokrzepiony przez VCF, ale mimo wszystko brakuje mu głębi i wyrazistości w/w modeli. Jednak fakt, że za 150 zielonych baksów dostajemy edytowalne waveformy, 7 kształtów LFO, 7 typów Chorusu, klawiaturę z dynamiką i aftertouch oraz MIDI czyni ten model jednym z najprzyjemniejszych i bezgrzesznych w historii.
