MTG R100 Builder – Kawai R100 EPROM Builder Software & Expander Switcher

via Music Technologies Group

"This software will enable you to create your own custom EPROMs (BIN files) for the Kawai R100 legendary 12-bit drum machine/rhythm composer.

In a nutshell you collect/create a bunch of WAV files, one for each of the 24 instruments and then this software compiles and converts them into the compressed Kawai format. It’s been a pretty big undertaking, starting with the dissection of the Kawai ASICs. I will eventually include a User Manual and a bunch of WAV and BIN files to get you started.

Your WAV files should each be:

Mono (1 track)
Sample rate of 31.25kHz (you can resample easily in Audacity or similar)
16-bit linear PCM (standard WAV)
Should fit within the sample space of the pad you are targeting."

"These are new "SoundSwitcher" boards for the Kawai R100. Each board includes copies of all 3 of the Kawai Factory ROMs that were released. (It is my understanding that these are the ROMs for the R100/R50, R50e and a jazz/fusion one.) You get triple the sounds and it's awesome.

Set-by-step instructions with photos are included. Don't miss this chance to fit your R100 with all the sounds made for it. The circuit board is silkscreened with the signal names, so all you circuit benders out there can bend your drum machine without messing with a fine vintage instrument."
