    SOUNDS

    Sounds that adapt to all kind of music but very effective on the tekno for all who have perched water table medium.bons sounds
    This is analogous to the sudden sounds are not realistic unless basic config
    the effects are perfect LFO Delay
    there are several waveforms
    The keyboard is very good expression

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for a year and I am very happy

    Very good analog synth

    Kawai 100FPublished on 11/08/12 at 12:39
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    70s analog monophonic and without twelve o'clock of course.

    UTILIZATION

    Very simple because everything is under the eyes, this is the advantage with these machines.

    SOUNDS

    Really good. This synth has a filter that has the same Features a moog filter.
    It can produce a wild self oscillation.
    sounds are very hot. it is very strong in Fx by its somewhat exotic configuration may return the oscilateur influence on the filter itself.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Excellent. If you are still on the market despite the fact that they rarely do, go for it!

    A good affordable vintage synth

    Kawai 100FPublished on 07/18/12 at 01:35
    The Kawai 100F is a vintage Synthesizer that is a very small piece of vintage gear, I think it only has 32 keys on it and doesn’t weigh much at all so it can be packed up and taken with you if you need to move it around. It is also a well built synth, the company that originally made these was bought out not long after they got built so I think that cause some problems with why it was as popular as I think it should have been. Most people will look down on this unit because it only has one oscillator, but there are still many different options to make it sound amazing and give it life.

Most people will look down on this unit because it only has one oscillator, but there are still many different options to make it sound amazing and give it life.


    UTILIZATION

    Using it takes no effort there are only about 20 to 25 buttons or knobs on it, and they are all labled in plain English. This would be a great, vintage synth sound module to add to your collection if you are into vintage gear like I am. I still have one of these and I have used it about a million times. I am actually thinking of selling it to get another board ( because I have my eye on a few other pieces of vintage synths).


    SOUNDS

    The sounds are great, don’t let the one oscillator scare you away, you will have the options to really add some cool stuff to your sound, there are a number of effects and a hi pass filter that can flare up your sound too.


    OVERALL OPINION

    This board is still affordable and can be found online, I have even seen some people that had them brand new in the box, I don’t know how in the world they still have a brand new one but I have seen them. I would purchase a brand new one though because they are still asking a lot of money for them. And part of the vintage thing is it having some use to it. I don’t buy them unless they have been used and abused.

    worth what we are talking, monophonic synthesizer low end, we are very far down dyu game roland, moog and consort ie I know.

    to three basses, fx and a lead if we are not demanding, it will be quite parcontre if it is not the case and you want a sound that turns your flat killing dancefloor mix, go your way.

    It is quite comparable to the Teisco 60f I also very basic.

    but it may be very appropriate, full of delays and effect of all kinds

    a single synthesizer with a tilt filter out of this world.
    3 octave monophonic.

    I will not repeat the same information but its a mono (one note at a time) with a CSO, a high pass filter and a lowpass filter absolutely amazing, a resonance that farts fire, a rising up 1LFO 50hz ( instead of 20 on many small analos) and a routing system with 2 ADSR which are available with the Kawai experiments can be many and varied.

    UTILIZATION

    No need for a manual analog. At worst you look at the screen! In Kawai everything is clear.

    SOUNDS

    This synth is simply amazing. He bluffed me personally as a kid and discovered MS20 has 10x more personality than most analos more expensive, even a Yamaha CS (5/10/15) does not happen at the ankle.

    Side FX is a pure delight. Amateur series and animated TV series of science fiction you'll find most of the range on this bike.
    For lovers of bass that strips your monitors and well you will not be outdone. The Kawai is a low, very low (no need to sub osc on this machine!) Absolutely pure and honest - it will not lace!, A powerful medium, a sharp whistle and personally I like it.
    Finally leads to Vangelis is perfectly possible (I have programmed!) And coupled with a little reverb and a nice time you can spend hours crying at the beauty of sound and especially the low pass filter which really sounds.

    OVERALL OPINION

    2 years, soon 3 years that I have this machine, I do not sell it. To those who are curious and not just the big names of analog go for it! because this machine is called Moog or other, it would clearly 800th minimum. I do not understand is why it is not more acclaimed.
