Kawai X30 : Yjanet's user review

"q" 5 (5/10)

Product bought new in December 1993

Characteristics 6/10

This is a 61 keys (5 octaves) keyboard embedding 100 sounds (16 bit PCM) and 50 styles.
Its feature include
- a one track sequencer with very limited memory
- a stereo chorus effect which does not sound so bad
- an auto-accompaniement section with one finger chords (or full chord)
- some kind of an arpegiator named "ad-lib" section which provides a few arpeggio pattern, based on the current chord
- transpose and fine tune

There is only
- one 1/4" TRS phone output
- one sustain pedal inlet

No MIDI or Line Out...

Utilization 3/10

There is no editable settings, just stereo chorus on or off and keyboard velocity curve (3 predefined curves)

Overall Opinion 7/10

It lacks everything to make it a real music instrument useable on stage or home studio, but the sounds were not so bad for the time being.

What I dislike most is the keyboard itself which is much too soft ...

I was just a child at the time I played with this and I really enjoyed it. I heard it recently, some sounds were still interresting and I would enjoy to have them (better sampled) in my plugins ...
