The impressive Kurzweil in action

June 11, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The Kurzweil K2000 is a 16 bit sampler with a complex synthesis architecture by Kurzweil Music Systems, similar to the EMU Emulator III. The K2000 features a technology dubbed V.A.S.T., which stands for “Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology”, a marketing term for the K2000’s digital signal processing (DSP) based sound processing system. It is variable in that the user can select different signal paths, which contain different DSP functions, for use in creating and shaping a sound. V.A.S.T. also includes an extensive modulation system, similar in concept to that of analog modular synthesizers. A wide array of modulation sources can be assigned to various parameters within a signal path, and modulation sources can be combined to create new modulation sources.

Here’s some personal examples of the K2000’s easy editing to create huge VA sounds in minutes. The first four are post edits, while the fifth was done in real time to show dynamics, richness and the K2000’s massive features.
