Recently just aquired the k3 for the third time. I guess things do happen in threes. More to the point this synth has great bass capabililty. The analog filters warm up the sound as well if not better than most current VA's. Any box you buy can add sqwuelch and resonance until it squeeels your ears off. This adds warmth. Take note: because there is a difference. The leads that can be created are very good as well. They are cheap. Pick one up.

I don't know about the rest of you, but this synth really reminds me of a Korg DW8000, except without the digital delay or arpegiator. It has that thick warm, but dark feel; it has multiple "acoustic" waveforms; and also comes with a velocity sensitive keyboard with aftertouch. Nice! I personally find the keyboard not to feel as cheap as say something like my alpha juno. But it does have a membrane panel and basically an alpha dial for realtime control like the juno, very cool! This synth is very underrated.

I just bought a Kawai K3 used at a music store about a month ago... It doesn't have the cartridge that it's supposed to come with when it was new...Anyone know how I can retrieve one ??? I love the sparatic randomness of the modulation that it gives off in the patch sounds onboard...The strings, organ, and brass sounds really have a good anologue feel to them... This board has Character... Definetly worth the price if you're looking for sounds that don't fall into the factory set patterns of the cheesy cheap keyboards that at the same price you might find at a K-mart...PS: The body of this sythn is made very nicely (no plastic crap all around it) Great all around Anologue Hybrid...

Hey you Reviewer Billy Spiropoulos! The K3 didn't have any sample on it!

It have the early implementetion of Kawai's additive synthesis with 32 time-fixed amplitud partials (sine waves) to create single-cycle waveforms.You get several of this harmonic configurations in the preset waveforms and a memory space for edit your own additive waveform by adding sine waves of user definable amplitude.

A truly overlooked mid 80's synth. Not many around here..... The best

thing is the ease of sound tweaking/creation! Great fun! The real

time wave edits make it cool for those unkown / undiscovered territories

within trance tunes...... Over-all an excellent &amp; easy to use/program/sound

experiments synth! I like it! O yeah - Dan Ieh's right about it not being

a sample synth.......
