Kawai K5 Multi dimentional additive synthesizer demo. (Digital drum Kawai R-100).

you can find many patches andother technical features and workouts etc for the K5 check this

Kawai K5 Glossary:
S1/S2 or sources: Every patch does have two sources, S1 and S2 and every source does have 63 overtones or harmonics.
Twin / Full: The two sources can be set to parallel mode called Twin or to a serial line-up mode called Full.

Aftertouch: or Channel Pressure. The pressure exerted on a key after it is pressed. K5 implement the simpler version of Channel Aftertouch, with the only capability to have only one aftertouch value a same time. That is the opposite to Polyphonic Key-Pressure / polyphonic Aftertouch which can have a value for every key. With aftertouch you can have some positive benefits on non-percussive sounds like strings or brass.

Modulation: Modulation is known as Vibrato, too.

Pitchbend: A shift in a note's pitch, usually in small increments, caused by the movement of the pitch-bend wheel. This is equivalent to the act of physically bending a guitar string, hence the name.

VEL / Velocity: a measure of the speed with which a key on a controller is pressed. Used to set volume characteristics of note.

Low Frequency Generator: This oscillator does not produce hearable frequencies, but with the different waveforms you can use it as a modulation source.

Pedal: Pedal or Foot-Controller is not used for volume changing, but for modulation controlling.

Release-Velocity: The speed with which a key is raised, it is usually not implemented on many keyboards.

Envelope: Envelope is used to form pitch, filter and amplitude with a certain shape that is usually done by the simple ADSR type envelope technique: (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) the envelope implemented to K5 is the high sophisticated rate/level envelope type inclusively loop. We do have free ajustable levels as well as there are time/rate sections that leads a level to another. Rate defines the speed that the envelope takes to get from one level to the next.

Portamento: Portamento is where a note is allowed to 'slide' up or down in frequency from a previous note, rather than making an abrupt change. This effect is difficult to apply effectively on a polyphonic device, but lends itself well to monophonic devices.
