"It's been a long two years to keep things quiet, but it's time for Kiwitechnics and Psicraft Designs to let everyone in on the big big secret: Kiwi-106 is now shipping!
Guided by such gear luminaries as Dave Lovelace (the creator/author of Keyboard magazine's Packrat comic) and the YouTube channel Juno-106 expert Syntegrator, Kiwitechnics and Psicraft have brought this beloved synth classic out of the 80s and put it where it belongs: The heart of your 21st century studio.
An expanded synthesis architecture with dual envelopes and multi-waveform LFOs is only the tip of the creative possibilities that any Juno-106 can now possess. Comprehensive routing of controls, high resolution parameters, and eight groups of 64 patches expand the Juno-106's synthesis capability many times over, but we're not done yet. Add in a six voice polyphonic 124 step sequencer and a pattern generator to the mix and Juno-106 becomes a new class of instrument.
Now design and implement a totally modern MIDI implementation suited for modern stage and studios and provide a free Vyzex professional instrument Mac/Windows editor/librarian along with the price of admission and what do you have? Modern Brains and Vintage Brawn, baby. The Kiwi-106!"
Well, that's the marketing blurb. Welcome to the forum. We're hoping this site will be a great place for conversation and ideas exchange in the months and years to come as Kiwi-106 upgrades make their way into instruments all around the world. If you have any questions or opinions, feel free to post!
