I owned a Kawai K3 for many years. The purpose of this synth is to compare it with Cobalt VST. (Which has many sounds programmed for it.) Both these synths are very simple synths to program for, and they look the same. When I bought my Kawai K3, I also compared it to the Korg DW8000. They both looked more or less like the same synth except the Dw-8000 only had 16 waveforms and the K3 had double that amount, so being that I was ignorant I bought this instead. the Cobalt is easily comparable to this synth so try to remake the sounds on that VST in the K3 and you will learn about a lot of characteristics. To save sounds however click on the function, which will let you save presets I set my patch library for it in my documents and it does a good job dumping them there. The K3 was known for electric piano's and contains a high pass filter. I don't see a way to make an LFO for pitch, but other than that please explore this synth, It can make some wild sounds and isn't complicated to program. Compare the seconds time on the Cobalt and try to recreate it in the K3. Anyways thanks to the person who designed this. It does have the characteristics of the K3 and remember to set the HP fliter to 12 to get rid of the first lowest harmonic.
