A dump of these is included with the version update file. 7) Release new version of the manual. Ver 1.00 Build 1. Status - Released August   2018 -  CPU Prog v100 Boot v100 (1&2) 1) Initial Release Note   -   Dual   &   Triple   Keymodes   do   not   have   a   legato   mode   in   the   intial   release.   This   has   proved   very   complex   and   rather   than   hold   up   the   release   this will be fixed in the next version release. Note   -   The   factory   sounds   have   been   sourced   from   a   number   of   different   sources.   Due   to   them   being   converted   to   suit   the   new   file   layout   they   may   not sound   exactly   as   they   used   to.   When   we   get   time   we   will   go   through   them   more   carefully   and   edit   bad   or   none   sounding   tones   out   and   make some   new   ones   featuring   the   new   kiwi-1000   features.   If   you   have   any   cool   patches   with   cool   names   you   would   like   to   have   included   in   the   factory set   do   send   us   a   sysex   dump   with   credit   info   included   so   we   can   check   them   out   and   maybe   make   you   famous.   Currently   tones   000-499   have been sourced from M1000 dumps and 500-999 from various Roland 8P & SJX & Kiwi-8P & 106 dumps. Kiwi8P Upgrade Software Release Notes Ver 1.60 Build 5.

The hardware doesn’t change so it is not necessary to tune on every power up and the last tune is remembered. 3) Improve midi processing speed. Ver 1.60 Build 4. Status - Released May   2019 -  CPU Prog v160 Boot v140e - VB Prog v150 Boot v120 (CPU & VB 1&2) 1) Fix Midi Channel setting 2) Fix Midi Omni not working on all Midi Channels 3) Fix Seq Midi Out not using correct channel Ver 1.60 Build 3.

Ver 1.60 Build 1. Status - Released Dec   2018 -  CPU Prog v160 Boot v140e - VB Prog v150 Boot v120 (CPU & VB 1&2) 1) Fix cpu memory corruption if midi being received during power on. Ver 1.50 Build 2. Status - Released Dec   2018 -  CPU Prog v150 Boot v130e - VB Prog v150 Boot v120 (CPU & VB 1&2) 1) Stop the tuning cycle getting stuck if a voice is not tuning correctly. Ver 1.50 Build 1. Status - Released Nov   2018 -  CPU Prog v150 Boot v130e - VB Prog v150 Boot v120 (CPU & VB 1&2) 1) Fix bugs in sending and receiving Tone & Seq Dumps. Note - you should redo any dumps you have saved as they will not restore correctly 2) Speed up voice board internal processing. It was possible to overload the VB internal comms if sending a lot of data. 3) Speed up Bend response time. 4) Remove voice sounding dots from display. This was messing with the display from time to time. Ver 1.40 Build 1. Status - Released May   2018 -  CPU Prog v140 Boot v130e - VB Prog v140 Boot v120 (CPU & VB 1&2) 1) Rewrite   Note   assign   logic   to   simplify   and   speed   up   processing.   This   has   resulted   in   the   Polychain   parameter   being   removed.   If   enough   people want this feature we will look at rewriting it in a future release. 2) Fix small voice board detune bug. Detune setting was not always being applied correctly to the note output. 3) Rework all keying modes to fix some behaviour problems under certain conditions 3) Remap key touch velocity for better dynamics 4) Add self tuning function to improve Saw waveform on voice board. This was sounding a bit thin on some 8Ps. 5) Remove the internal factory programs. We have released 5 Groups of tones which are included with the update for easy loading. 6) Fix ARP Mode & Range not displaying correctly 7) Fix Seq not always starting immediately it is selected. This was more apparent when a Tone had a Seq automatically starting. 8) Fix   bug   in   Cart   import.   This   will   import   starting   at   the   currently   selected   Tone   so   make   sure   you   have   selected   a   blank   bank   before   importing.   The CART import will now also import and tones held in the internal RAM. Cart tones go to 1:1-4:8 and RAM tones go from 5:1-8:8. 9) The   Kiwi8P   will   now   accept   MKS70/JX-10   Tone   dumps   for   import.   This   will   allow   the   import   of   the   large   library   of   Tones   that   are   on   the   web. These   will   import   with   the   tone   number   that   is   stored   in   the   dump   into   the   currently   selected   group.   This   will   overwrite   the   tone(s)   in   those positions. There are some caveats when doing this as ranges are not always the same and these are detailed in the manual under Importing. 10) Dump All Tones   is   being   changed   to   only   dump   the   currently   selected   Group   of   64   tones. The   Dump All   is   only   useful   for   backing   up   the   synth   and not   very   useful   for   loading   or   moving   just   one   group   of   64   tones.   The   resulting   72k   file   from   a   dump   all   is   a   bit   unwieldy   as   well   and   will   not   work with   some   of   the   cheaper   midi   interfaces.   Now   the   Group   number   in   the   dump   is   ignored   and   the   tone(s)   will   always   save   to   the   currently   selected Group. Ver 1.30 Build 1. Status - Released Jan   2018 -  CPU Prog v130 Boot v120 - VB Prog v120 Boot v110 (CPU 1&2) 1) Enable   CART   IMPORT   on   the   parameter   edit   map   (637).   The   32   tones   stored   on   the   CART   will   import   to   the   currently   selected   group   so   make sure you select an empty one. 2) The   Kiwi8P   will   now   accept   Roland   JX-8P   format   tone   dumps.   These   will   import   with   the   tone   number   that   is   stored   in   the   dump   into   the   currently selected group. This will overwrite the tone(s) in those positions. 3) The Kiwi8P will now accept Roland JX-8P format tone parameter edit commands. 4) Some redundant sysex has been removed Kiwi106 Upgrade Software Release Notes Ver 2.05 Build 4.
