Stereoping programmer used for K3 realtime-access. This knob-per-function environment turns the Kawai in a much more flexible musical instrument.
… this one might be the best of the “live editing” series. It demonstrates the suprising meaty K3 bass, the great filter resonance and the outstanding analog / hybrid character of the instrument. Envelope parameters, oscillators waves, LFO speed and other parts of the tracks are changed in realtime …
Smooth pads, filter sweeps, sample&hold and portamento effects … everything is realtime controlled …
K3 tweaked in realtime via Stereoping hardware controller. Sequencer: Manikin Schrittmacher.
Part of Robert Witteks excellent K3 audio workshop. Many thanks for permission to use these samples. See Robert’s website www.synthesizer.at for more details.
5 Kawai K3 tracks. Strings, wind (noise), dripping organ solo sound, lead line, creeping bass sequence. Long sustained chords have a certain power in their own, which is what I really appreciate.
This sample starts with high filter resonance, and then concentrates on mixing the balance between both oscillators.
K3 arpeggio track and ARP-2600 effect lead line. Well, this sounds a bit like Kitaro, LP Silkroad or something similar …
Two short files in a row: LFO modulation sound and another Vangelis-like solo … all with the internal chorus ON. Quite noisy … and nowhere as beautiful as any Roland analog chorus.
Slow manual glide from one oscillator to the other. Both oscillators have different octave range settings.
