I bought my KC-10 new for $500 in the mid eighties and have used it primarily for a performance axe, although I set it up for midi recording and did several projects with it. I've used it hundreds of times on stage, for 5 years as my only keyboard on stage. For the bucks it's been great. The piano and organ sounds are excellent (although the piano decay is a bit unrealistic) for use in a rock band context, and the clav, harpsi, harmonica and some of the orchestral sounds are great. The layering and split capabilities are fine for building custom patches. It's not state of the art by any means, but back in the day and even now ir serves its purpose. Now my primary performance piece is a Kurzweil, but for a little gig I still use the tiny Kawai for it's light weight. The keyboard is wobbly, but unless you're doing Mozart, who cares?

I could really use a manual for my Kawai KC10

It is clear to me I could do more if I knew what things are supposed to do and sound like. Anyone?

I totally agree with Walter Lipski below. This is a remarkable synthesizer. BRUTAL synthesis power. Like it better than my Alesis A6 for that "techno sound". Press a few keys, and it sounds like Derrick May and Juan Atkins jamming in an elevator. The real deal indeede. The KC10 IS THE Juan Atkins sound personified. I think he did everything with one of these but would probably lie about it.

Amazing, and grossly under rated synthesizer. I generally go for this first, and I own a Xpander, Waldorf Wave and Triton. This was "thee" synth that the entire late-80's detroit techno sound was based around. This was the secret weapon of Derrick May and Juan Atkins back in the day. Listen to the pads, and you'll understand. It is a remarkable tool. I honestly think, that with one of these, and TR909, and a MMT-8... you can do anything. So good sounding, you don't even need FX. Rich and resonant in tone. Very Prophet 5-ish. No.... I'm not kidding. A legend that no one knows about. Revolutionary synth for it's day (and today). Also used by Snoop-Dog and Dre.
