Sound Programmer for Kawai K1 for MDP2 by ibo-kai

MIDI Target Manufacturer(s): Kawai
Summary: Ibo Kai's revamp of his own layout, now for MIDI Designer Pro 2! What's different aside from the awesome look with Glow? It's 33% more compact thanks to Picker controls!

Here's the blurb from the other version: A full sound editor for the Kawai K1 by Master Layout Author Ibo Kai!!! The Kawai K1 (and K1m for desktop, and K1r rack-mountable) was released in 1988 and is still a well-loved, 16-voice polyphonic sample-based PCM synthesis. Vintage Synth Explorer says, "The K1 is one of Kawai's most economic digital synthesizers in the K-series. The K1 has 256 digital samples of waveforms, 50 of which are from acoustic instruments. You combine up to four wave shapes to create very new and unique sounds. The K1 is capable of very good acoustic recreation, excellent unique synth sounds or at times, completely noisy walls of complex sound." Lots of hurdles were overcome to create this masterpiece, including... errors in the MIDI spec. We are very lucky to have this amazing layout!

EDIT: I made this update to the K1 editor, mainly using the new features of MD2 and the EFP. It is all in GLOW mode now and I am using the Picker tool for the wave select of each source, which is just perfect for this function. Besides I put together the 2 wave selectors from the old layout using a super control set to "sequential" (don´t know why I didn´t do this from the start). So it is really one control for one function now.
