"This video documents the Kawai XD5 I'm selling on Reverb, enjoy, its not just a drum box"

via this auction

"Kawai XD-5 percussion synthesizer module in excellent condition with DC16 RAM card, power supply and full documentation including schematics.

Be sure to check out the video walk thru made with this actual unit for sale. This synth is more than a drum box!

This is an awesome drum synth module that has 256 waveforms, four of which can be combined to create a single drum or synth sound.

You build an array of 64 patches, from there you assign them to a "kit" spanning 88 keys and save it. You can have 16 Kits ready to rock.

It has great resonant lowpass filters and envelopes for shaping the sounds and is excellent for techno, electro and industrial drums, basslines and leads. For effects, a delay type effect is possible as well as a ring-modulator.

Patches can be directed to stereo out or 6 individual outs . Directing your kicks to a separate out and then to a compressor really makes them punchy.
There are 32 digital oscillators, 256 waveforms (16-bit, 44.1kHz resolution) comprised of
41 DC (Digital Cyclic) and
215 CM waveforms,
16 note polyphony,
64 user patches,
16 user drum kits,
a 16 x 2 character backlit LCD display screen, 2-space rack mountable

This XD-5 is in great shape and comes as pictured with a photocopy of the Owner's Manual, Patch List (Factory Preset), Wave List / MDI Data Format manual
includes a 12V wall wart power supply."
