Wow! This one looks great! I would not mind having a K5 and being able to emulate Jean Michel Jarre while playing an EWI. I love those smart and creative solutions for the SYSEX that you have done here. Awesome job, thedood!
Wow man, another one! This is insane, we'll be sharing about this soon on all fronts. Thanks!
+1 for Jean Michel Jarre, king of the pads! Im not sure there are many of these K5s left. They can do somethings great. They certainly aren't an all rounder but they can do ambience well.
This one looks really great! I had a K5 many years back and remember, how fascinating it was in terms of options, but how tedious to actually program sounds. I am sure this layout should help a lot! Congrats, must have been a huge work!
By the way if I remember correctly, the K3 already featured one programmable harmonic spectrum and the K1 used a lot of waveforms made with the K5.
I just got another K5 (wanted to give it a second chance), but besides the usual dim display some buttons are unresponsive. Before I´ll get that fixed, I´ll try your layout for some editing.Thanks a lot for this!
Are you insane? lol I thought you learned your lesson! haha
Its funny, I haven't used mine for nearly two years now. I need to get he out and fire it up. Ive been so far down the rabbit hole with Eurorack of late that Ive forgotten it. Its still the only synth I own that I actually fear. Good luck buddy. Its a complicated layout but that being said, its a complicated synth ;)
Ah, you know how it goes: you read some online article about that one synth, you watch a couple of YT videos, like the sound and then you find a decent offering in your area. And magically the instrument appears on your keyboard stand before you even realized, what’s going on. :D Luckily nowadays I am not in need for all the basic stuff like in my young days (and which the K5 doesn’t really provide) and I have time and a lot more experience to explore it. Just the display and sticky buttons need to be worked on. Will try your layout later today, must have been quite some work to make it. And yes, K5 is a complex machine.
