VOICE core CPU Risc-32 manage 32 digital voices based on DAS DSP ADVANCED SYNTHESIS.
A basic k5000 patch is composed by 6 digital oscillators or so called "elements".
Each DAS elements can be either a:
DSP additive wave
PCM sample wave
ADDITIVE ELEMENT DSP generates 128 digital sinewaves harmonic that can be summed following the Fourier principle. The sinewaves are split into 2 harmonic groups (each group counts for 1 element):
1) harmonic group1 : from 1 to 64
2) harmonic group2 : from 64 to 128
The relative harmonics levels can be set in 3 different ways:
DHL: step by step values entries
2- DHE: EG envelope
6 macro harmonic groups templates: bright, odd, even, octave, 5th and whole-harmonics selection.
One of the most interesting features is the Morphing function which is able to record up to 4 harmonics snapshots with progressive interpolation values for a smooth motion.
PCM ELEMENT subtractive synthesis is a 16 bits ROM that holds 689 PCM waveforms split into 4 categories:
PCM acoustic instruments
2- PCM transient attack PCM (like Roland D-50
3- PCM 225 one-shot drums and
PCM 341 Midi GM waves
ENVELOPE 5 EGs:
1- amplitude osc: 4 segments+ 2 levels
2- pitch osc: 4 segments+ 2 levels
3- standard filter: 4 segments+ 2 levels
4- formant filter: variable structure
5- harmonic: variable structure every harmonics has its own EG with possible loops scan between decay segments.
FILTER the DCF is multimode:
highpass (both PCM+ ADD)
lowpass (both PCM+ ADD)
formant (only ADD) is a 128 bands resonant comb-model defined by 128 DFL steps, each step contains 2 values for both level and envelope. For quick edit it is possible to fill steps using the macro bands selections (5-10-15-20-ALL).
LFO 4 digital modulators (triangle, saw, random and square ) and 4 destinations:
1- oscillator pitch
EFFECTS fully editable sections includes: reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, leslie, distortion, excister and overdrive.
512 RAM patches
Sounds and performances can be saved either to Midi Sysex dump or to internal 1.44 MB disk drive
which file system is PC MS-Dos file system.
MIDI quite all parameters can be controlled by Midi Control Change. The Optional Kawai box Macro Control can be used to improve edit interface.
SEQUENCER offers 40 tracks, 40000 notes recording to a resolution of 96 PPQ with real time feature (quantizes mode) or step by step.
The Songs can be saved to SMF Midi standard format and arranged with intelligent style composer Automatic Phrase Generator.
