Kawai X30 : Yjanet's user review

"q"
4

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

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

OVERALL OPINION

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 ...
