4 4 out of 5, based on 1 Review

The Kawai K1 was an exceptional synth created to take advantage on the niche between the Roland D50 and the Roland D20. Cheaper than the Roland synth, specially in its module version

Kawai K1

The Kawai K1m is the answer from Kawai to the needs of synth enthusiasts than couldn't afford the Roland D50 or wait for its cheaper version the D20.
Sacrificing the keyboard and the filtering option secured a low price and didn't take away a gorgeous sound engine based on samples that can deliver those characteristics Kawai random wave modulation very helpful for sci-fi alien noises or those mellow digital piano so typical on the 80s.
Cheap but great sound and easy to use. The synth is still a sound blast from the past
