Kawai K5000S Advanced Additive Synthesizer
via this auction
"Fully programmable. Semi-weighted 61-key keyboard. Over 1,000 parameters per patch. It combines additive synthesis and PCM sampled waveforms to layer and combine to design a whole range of sounds. Plenty of LFO modulation, filters and envelope controls to shape and morph sounds. On-board multi-effects. It has a 40,000 note capacity and 40 tracks. Real-time record and step-edit modes are available and the sequencer is pretty straight forward. 12 dedicated knobs for hands-on control of filter, LFO and envelope parameters. There are 4 user-definable knobs and 2 assignable switches. The K5000S also has a 40-pattern arpeggiator on-board with 8 user-definable patterns. K5000's have been used by Kraftwerk."
