July 2019IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT ALL KIWITECHNICS PRODUCTSWe have identified an issue with all kiwi products that will potentially damage cpu memory if midi is playing into the synth as it is powered on. This has been fixed in the latest version for each product and these have been uploaded to the Yahoo files section.

The latest update (1.2) adds improved Oberheim M1000 import which opens a large library of available tones.These new tones will be included in the v1.2 update when it is released.KIWI-1000This upgrade has had a sizable makeover. Many controls have been changed to split controls, new matrix sources added, tone import improved, waveshape changed to allow Saw to Clipped Triangle using a single control, Env 1-3 delays added and matrix 9 removed to make room for this.All the factory tones have been redone and it is sounding much better. The PE patch and MQ12 editor have been changed to match the changes.KIWI-PEWe are making a cpu upgrade for the older PEsprior to serial number 1514 that will give them more memory and be similar to the newer models.
