VST3 shows up in Cakewalk but crashes as soon as I load it up. VST2 works fine.
I can confirm that. Latest versions of Cakewalk by Bandlab and K1v on Win7 (x64). Still, this is a fun plug-in, and I'm looking forward to the K4!

Nils! I basically came here to bemoan the absence of a Mac version only to find there is one, and oh my lord how much fun I am having! I bow my head in deepest respect of your work. This is truly a dream come true, as I've always had a weak spot in my heart for the Kawais. Especially the K4r which was the synthesizer I made my first own sounds on.

I hate to be _that_ guy but seeing that you are planning to make a K4 emulation. May I be so bold to ask you if you could consider making an emulation of the XD5 as well? As far as I understand, it's basically a K4r with different ROMs.

That might be achieved by simply ripping the waveforms from XD5 and adding them as an option to K4v? Same with faster envelopes, gate mode (which I assume means - oneshot mode, play the sample all the way through even if you release the key early)... all those could be a switchable option I suppose.

Love the K4 hacking story, looking forward to see what comes out of it! :D

One small thing I noticed in the blog post, is this sentence supposed to say "bits" instead of "bytes"?
What do we see here? We see eight least significant bytes of a sample.

Furthermore, all Mac versions now have native Apple M1 SoC support.
BIG thank you for Apple M1 native support :clap:

I just came across this site:
https://dbwbp.com/index.php/9-misc/37-synth-eprom-dumps
No K5 eproms there, but also no K1 or K4. Its an interesting collection, you might want to share your read outs... (or not...; - )

I contacted the site owner already some months ago, I've got multiple roms that I'd like to share, but unfortunately I've never got a reply...
