The Kawai XD-5 is a percussion synthesizer based on the Kawai K4 sample playback + filter + AM amplifier modulation synthesis architecture. It is essentially a Kawai K4r with percussion waveforms, plus speeded up envelopes, gate mode and amplifier to better suit percussion sounds. Features include 32 digital oscillators each capable of using one of 256 available 16-bit waveforms, a digital filter with self resonance and 8 individual outputs.
