Kawai K3

The K3 is a six-voice wavetable synthesizer with 32 waveforms, some of which are unique waves and others are samples of acoustic instruments like piano and percussion. Each voice consists of two digital oscillators run through an analog filter (based on SSM2044 filter chips), and an analog VCA. The sound of the K3 is reminiscent of the PPG Wave 2, 2.2 or 2.3, and it can produce deep, lush analog/digital sounds. The K3 is ergonomically like other mid-80s synthesizers, with membrane buttons and an encoder for editing parameters.
