Dropped the price a bit, maybe it will sell quicker, remember this has the RAM card worth $75-$100  alone, if you can ever find one...

For sale one used Kawai XD-5 percussion synthesizer module in excellent condition with DC16 RAM card, power supply and full documentation including schematics.

Be sure to check out the video walk thru made with this actual unit for sale. This synth is more than a drum box!

This is an awesome drum synth module that has 256 waveforms, four of which can be combined to create a single drum or synth sound.

You build an array of 64 patches, from there you assign them to a "kit" spanning 88 keys and save it. You can have 16 Kits ready to rock.

It has great resonant lowpass filters and envelopes for shaping the sounds and is excellent for techno, electro and industrial drums, basslines and leads. For effects, a delay type effect is possible as well as a ring-modulator.

Patches can be directed to stereo out or 6 individual outs . Directing your kicks to a separate out and then to a compressor really makes them punchy.
There are 32 digital oscillators, 256 waveforms (16-bit, 44.1kHz resolution) comprised of
41 DC (Digital Cyclic) and
215 CM waveforms,
16 note polyphony,
64 user patches,
16 user drum kits,
a 16 x 2 character backlit LCD display screen, 2-space rack mountable

This XD-5 is in great shape and comes as pictured with a photocopy of the Owner's Manual, Patch List (Factory Preset), Wave List / MDI Data Format manual
includes a 12V wall wart power supply.

I will email the buyer a half dozen or so sysex files that have a variety of kits and patches, including the factory installed patches.

This unit is fully functional through testing via the front panel headphone jack and sounds great. The LCD display and backlight are bright and working perfectly. There are light scuffs on the top, bottom and sides, as well as scratches around the holes in the rack ears from mounting, but the front panel and display are in great shape ! The backup bateries in the synth and the RAM card are freshly new. 

Full manual can be previewed at kawaius.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Kawai-XD-5-Percussion-Synthesizer-Manual.pdf. I will email the buyer a set of sysex files that come from Kawai, including the default factory patches. 

Note: it is used electronics so it is non returnable and there is no warranty except that it won't arrive DOA. It will be shipped fully insured via USPS or UPS ground.
