Product Description

The Kurzweil K2700 Synthesizer Workstation continues the original Kurzweil K250’s legacy with Kurzweils advanced K2 series features. It comes loaded with wide secretion of factory presets with 1500 programs plus an additional 3.5GB of storage space. Kurzweil's Flash-Play provides the K2700 with a staggering amount of horse-power. Up to 8 GB total capacity with zero-loading time, and ultrafast performance. The K2700 features a 88-key fully-weighted keyboard plus 16 pad triggers and a ribbon controller making it easy and intuitive to wield its massive sound and feature set. The K2700 expands on Kurzweil’s legendary Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology offering 32-layers per program, deeply customizable signal paths and a host of modular DSP tools including new oscillators, filters, and FX.

SOUND ENGINE

The K2700 serves up a deep sound library of over 1500 factory Programs and over 700 Multi combinations organized into 13 instrument categories ranging from Pianos to Synths to Orchestral sounds and more, featuring the optimized unlooped German D, Japanese C7 and Triple Strike pianos, Classic Tine EPs (’73 & ’77), plus updated sounds from our popular SP6, PC3/4, and KORE64 expansion. Flash-Play provides the K2700 with a staggering amount of horse-power. Up to 8 GB total capacity with zero-loading time, and ultrafast performance. Load up to 3.5 GB of your own custom samples into non-volatile flash memory. Supported sample formats: .WAV, .AIF (up to 16-bit/96 kHz) and Kurzweil formats (.FOR, .PC4, .P3K, .KRZ, .K25, .K26).

The K2700 expands on Kurzweil’s legendary Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology offering 32-layers per program, deeply customizable signal paths and a host of modular DSP tools including new oscillators, filters, and FX. 6 Operator FM Engine features the ability to load original FM SysEx files. FM layers are a new addition to VAST programs and can be combined with VAST features to go far beyond classic FM synthesis.

Embedded within the K2700 are powerful anti-aliasing, power-shaped oscillators along with DSP processing from Kurzweil’s mythical VA1 concept synth, capable of delivering authentic analog emulations as well as incredibly complex new sounds. Modeled after classic organs. A full complement of tonewheel controls are immediately accessible including 9 realistic drawbars, rotary speed, chorus/vibrato, brake, percussion and more. Award-winning Reverbs, Delays, Choruses, Flangers, Phasers, Distortions, Rotary Amplifiers, Compressors and more – all fully editable from the user-interface. The K2700 also offers a global Master FX section featuring 3-band EQ and Compression.

PERFORMANCE

Every sound within the K2700 is perfectly matched to its 88-note fully-weighted keyboard with aftertouch. Further customize the MIDI velocity and pressure response to suit your personal playing style. Construct massive sonic combinations via Kurzweil’s renowned Multi mode (aka Setup mode) offering 16 zones of unparalleled MIDI controller capabilities, with each zone supporting over 60 separate physical controllers!

The K2700 features a 16-track internal sequencer to record/edit/mix/produce your own tracks – all in the box. Import MIDI (.mid) files as well as Kurzweil PC3/PC4/Forte-family songs. Add sonic animation to your sounds via 16 simultaneous MIDI CC Step Sequencers for modulation sequencing. Trigger and manipulate up to 16 simultaneous MIDI sequences on the fly. Select from an internal library of patterns or record/import your own!

Looking for a pulse? Activate up to 16 independent Arps (1 per program, 16 per Multi) and dive into the ‘Step Sequencer’ environment!

CONTROLS

Bend pitch, from musically subtle variations to deep dives? Of course. But then go beyond the expected and control filters, volume, tempo, distortion, and more. Configure the Ribbon to have one control section that runs its entire length, or to have three sections of equal length acting independently.

Use the 4 x 4 grid of velocity sensitive pads to trigger drums & percussion with precision. Further, activate zone mutes, trigger notes/chords, filters, add layers, control the Arp, CC Sequencers and more.

9 sliders, 9 knobs and 10 buttons. All programmable. Internally control volumes, pans, filters, FX wet/dry, envelopes, mutes, etc. Externally transmit any desired MIDI CC’s to your DAW host.

Navigate the K2700 with a clear, easy to read 4.3” 480×272 widescreen color LCD display.

Use the Transport section to control recording and playback of the on-board 16-track sequencer as well as your favorite DAW (via MMC and System Real-Time messages).

Easy Category and Program/Multi selection featuring customizable category defaults.

Front panel pitch/modulation wheels for expressive performances accompanied by dedicated ± transpose controls for quick/easy key changes.

Two assignable switch pedal jacks and two assignable CC pedal jacks.

AUDIO INTERFACE + I/O

Record straight to your DAW via USB. No separate interface required. Connect your choice of line/instrument/mic source and route audio from the K2700 and its analog inputs to your DAW, with or without FX. The audio interface section features per channel gain knobs, peak-level LEDs, Hi-Z switching and +48v phantom power.

Plug in and jam along with an external audio source via 1/4” – XLR combo inputs. Process the inputs through dedicated real-time FX to create new textures. Sweeten your vocal or backing tracks for live performance and internally mix the signal with the K2700’s own output.

Connect to your favorite mixer, amp or studio monitors and route the K2700’s audio signal (including input from the audio interface) amongst the four 1/4” TRS balanced outputs (two stereo pairs, A & B). The K2700 features pristine 32-bit D-to-A converters with automatic mono switching on main outs and a back-panel 1/4” stereo headphone jack.

A single USB cable allows you to use the K2700 as both a MIDI controller and audio sound source with your DAW. USB Host functionality further allows for connecting USB class compliant devices such as an alternate keyboard controller or external fader/knob unit. USB also provides for storage of custom content and system updates.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
