KiwiTechnics News
Oct 2017 T he   Kiwi-8P   project   is   being   shipped .   With   the   second   batch   of   Kiwi8P   parts   we   have   managed   to   save   some   costs   and   we   a   delighted   to   announce   that   we are passing this on. The new price will take effect from the 1st of February. The next project is well under way and making great progress. The 3P production has now ceased.  These will still be available until parts run out. Because   there   are   only   so   many   JX-3Ps   out   there   sales   have   slowed   to   the   point   where   it   is   no   longer   a   viable   product.   We   would   like   to   thank   everyone   who has purchased this upgrade and we hope that you continue to enjoy it. KiwiSix is getting a new version.  This is a sizable upgrade and will add a Sequencer and fix some bugs that have been reported. Changes are (from the releases page) 1) Add Sequence Play & Edit 2) Reduce Tones from 1024 to 512 to make room for Sequence storage 3) Improve sync with midi clock when midi is busy (was skipping clocks) 4) Create new Edit Map. This can be downloaded from the K6 Page once released 5) Rewrite Manual with Seq Section and File Layout changes. This can be downloaded from the K6 Page once released 6) Update Front Panel Overlay 7) Change Clocking system - Now uses Master clock (Int or Midi) - see updated manual 8) Separate Arp & Seq clock divider settings including swing options  - see updated manual 9) Add Waveforms to LFO. Now has Sine, Tri, Sqr, Saw, Rev Saw & Random. These need to be set using midi CC or sysex (see manual) 10) Bug fix - Notes do not keep transpose setting when released Note - Dump file layout is changing and any saved dumps will no longer load correctly. Redo all dumps after this update Any tones in storage locations 513-1024 will be lost as this area is required for sequence storage. Move and save these before updating.
