VOICE main system CPU is based around Texas Instruments TMS7000. Custom IC TMS3631AN generates 6 voices polyphony with 2 detunable oscillators DCO1 / DCO2 with 3 footages at 4' 8' 16'.
Each oscillator features 2 mixables (only 50% volume) shapes and a noise generator with no control (but volume) can be mixed to DCO.
-2 oscillator per voice at 4' 8' 16'
- sawtooth / pulse shape
- DCO2 detune coarse+ fine
up to 6 voices, no split, no stack
Pink noise generator with volume control
4 different keyboard curves sensivity: high/medium1/medium2/low
the VCF is a low pass type 24dB/oct resonant
- keytracking mode
- 2 separate modulators for DCO pitch
- extra dedicated LFO for pulse width and filter cutoff
-1 EG generator assignable to:
VCA / VCF
The dynamics destination (velocity) can be assigned to either ADSR level or Attack time.
The Kiwi is sysex compatible, some old editors maybe for commodore64. No info about this for now.
The kiwi holds up to 95 patches. Memory system works with a battery with frequent leakage issues.
- 1 EG
- very basic
- lot of good IC
- sounds nice
