kawaik3 Please see enlarged pictures for details. they are part of description.

I acquired many items, accessories, etc. from a local collector and musician whos passion was synthesizers. He took a great care of his items, saved all the manuals. I have a pleasure to list them and pass them along to a new collector.

This unit is in excellent condition. It does work great. ” Link

I am the original and only owner. It was lightly used from 1987-1992, and it has been sitting on my studio rack since then, used maybe once or twice a year, when I need one of it’s great sounds. It still works perfectly (even has the patches I had created in my college cover band still in there!). Includes the user manual.” Link

k3m“For sale is a beautiful Kawai K3M synthesizer rack module. As you can see from the pictures, the unit is very clean. All buttons, knobs, lights and display work perfectly. The unit is really clean all the way around- back, front, sides, rack ears etc- beautiful. I tested this unit using both the headphone outs and the stereo outs into my mixer using a Roland A-37 to control it. It works great, responds to MIDI beautifully. I even tested program changes via MIDI, and that SSM filter really shines- especially with bass sounds, sweet analog mono leads and wide polyphonic pads. I tested editing and saving patches internally and to the carts and both carts have been tested and work great. This unit has HUGE bottom end and warmth, that definitely put my old Ensoniq ESQ-1 and Korg DW-8000 to shame, not to mention most if not all plugins and VA’s. The wife has had me cleaning out my studio to make way for a new addition to my family 🙂 My loss, your gain.” Link

Selling my Kawai K3M synth module. These are simply great units. It’s spent its time in a rack in my smoke free studio and everything works great.

K3M, Kawai @ 30 July 2013, Comments Off on Kawai K3m


Digital subtractive ROMpler/wavetable synthesizer. It also allows you to do a bit of additive synthesis, but shaping up to 64 harmonics to create a complex waveform to use as an oscillator. Has analog filters and envelopes. Sounds great.

I have a memory cartridge for it — the RC-2, hard to find both the synth and memory cartridge together, and alone the cartridge is expensive.

It is in incredible condition. Barely a scratch — just the slightest rack rash.” Link

K3M, Kawai @ 16 July 2013, Comments Off on Kawai K3m

“My absolute favorite synth for Fat bass patches. I’m downsizing from the 3 I own.

Included is a Laser printed full copy of the operation manual, the Waveform chart and the Kawai brochure. All buttons and functions work properly.

It’s a very special instrument that you won’t come across every day. Look at the pictures, it’s in great shape.

It features a programmable digital waveform where you can specify the harmonic content of a waveform allowing for added flexibility and range of sounds. What’s really neat about the K3 is that (unlike the K1) it has analog filters and envelopes! So although the sound may be digital at first, it sure does get warmed going through the filters. The low pass resonant filter even has its own envelope generator.

There’s also a high pass filter, a highly flexible LFO and a fat Unison mode. The K3 is an interesting synth, nicely bridging the gap between the analog and digital domain of vintage synthesizers. It is further complemented by a lush stereo chorus with seven different settings.

The programming interface is a joy in that each parameter has a separate selection button on the front panel, for every edit function possible – no scrolling through menus. It easy to program, and also a great learning tool due to this system.

The K3m is a thing of beauty. It can sound like a PPG or an analogue poly, plus with some nice quirky features. The bass end can be trouser-shakingly boomy if you want, if not then the high cut filter comes to the rescue. Also bass sounds in Mono mode are enormous. You’ll love the strange ethereal chord patches the machine produces, and the velocity controlled oscillator balance is a great feature, when playing “live” as expression or when using repetitive sequencer lines with random velocity parameters. The K3 keyboard was enormous, but this synth is a svelte 2 space rack mount and the power supply is internal.

You’ll have fun with this box, it’s a blast to use. ” Link
