A very underrated synth. Has a somewhat phat, crude sound, reminiscent of a 70ies modular system. No joke. Lopass and highpass-filter in parallel onboard. Great Filter envelope and LFO-section, etc. Built in analogue FX include tremolo, short delay, and 5 types of Chorus (the Juno 106, in comparison, has two). I have read several reviews stating that it can do a decent Minimoog bass. And a very accurate OSCar bass, mind you. If you want clean, pseudo-analogue, buy a VA, or something like a Roland JX10. If you want real analog, you would do well to consider this one. It's dead easy to program, and, they go for next to nothing. It is my honest opinion (hype aside) that Kawai has produced three of the finest, most userfriendly, and unique sounding synths ever made, the K4, the K5000s, and the K3/K3m.

A poor-man's Fairlight. Great for bass and additive sounds.

I´ll never sell mine! If it would crash, I´d get two new ones. The lowest bass available (not fat, low frequency). Use it for superlush pads and bass without resonance. Nice chorus onboard. Poor mans CS-80 i IMO.

I just pick this module for under a hundred bucks. I think all the different Kawai K series Synthesizers offer interesting synthesis possibilities. The K3m is nice, easy to program and able to produce a wide variety of sounds. The presets are really quite aweful, but once you get past those its a fun synth to work with, good for out-there type sounds, would not recomend for sound modeling or analog type sounds. It seems to me a much simplified K5 (I know the K3 came out first) ; its no wheres near as endless or ponderous as it. This is a much more flexible module than my Roland mks-30. Though a sub-osc would have made the K3 a incredible synth.
