Kawai | XD-5
|The Kawai XD-5 is a percussion synthesizer based on the Kawai K4 sample playback + filter + AM amplifier modulation synthesis architecture. It is essentially a Kawai K4r with percussion waveforms, plus speeded up envelopes, gate mode and amplifier to better suit percussion sounds. Features include 32 digital oscillators each capable of using one of 256 available 16-bit waveforms, a digital filter with self resonance and 6 individual outputs.
The Kawai XD-5 16 hit digital percussion synthesizer. This revolutionary new synthesizer uses 16-bit 44.1 kHz sampled and synthesized waveforms for optimum sound quality. The friendly user-interface and parameter structure of the Kawai K series has been retained, and new functions and features added to increase the XD-5's music making power.
The XD-5 is a rack-mount digital percussion synthesizer equipped with a DMS (Digital Multi Spectrum) tone generator capable of up to 16 notes of polyphony when set at two Sources per tone.
The XD-5 utilizes a newly developed DMS tone generator. Not only does it use 16 bit system, but because it has a Digital Filter function, your freedom in producing sounds is unlimited. It is also capable of AM (Ring Modulation) to easily and simply produce clangorous and distorted sounds.
256 high quality internal waveforms
The XD-5 has 41 DC (Digital Cyclic) waveforms composed of as many as 128 harmonics, and a total of 215 PCM waveforms, for a total of 256 waveforms. Because the XD-5's internal waveforms are reproduced using 16-bit 44.1 kHz quantization, noise and distortion are virtually inaudible.
INDIVIDUAL OUTPUT function
The XD-5 is equipped not only with two stereo output jacks, but with six separate output jacks as well to allow the connection of external effects units to create high quality sound.
When you use the pad controller or drum machine which has no GATE parameter, you can play full cycle of envelope by using this mode.
A card permits an increased number of tones to be placed in memory. One card can hold 64 SINGLE Patches, 16 KIT Patches and 16 OUTPUT Patches.

|LFO||Low Frequency Oscillator||Sub||Sub Oscillator|
|VCF||Voltage Controlled Filter||VCA||Voltage Controlled Amplifier|
|Velocity||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.||Aftertouch||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.|
|Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.|
