"The Kiwi-8P Upgrade features:

Each Key Assign mode can have Rotate/Reassign, Staccato/Legato, Steal/No Steal with five steal modes (Highest, Lowest, Oldest, Newest, Quietest)

Portamento in all modes

DCO Key Assign Detune available in all key modes except Solo.

In addition there is a 'Analog Feel' parameter that add an adjustable small random frequency to each note. Detune is best used with Poly Dual, Poly Triple or Unison keying modes for greatest effect

Three independent envelope generators. These are traditional ADSR type and are modeled on the Original JX-8P. Each ENV Mod can select from ENV 1 - 3 and has an Inverted or Normal modes. These are faster than the traditional JX-8P envelopes
