Kurzweil K1000 Keyboard

   0 reviews  -  3072 views

    The K1000 combines a 76-note. weighted key, velocity-sensitive keyboard with a varied collection of the sounds found on the legendary Kurzweil K250. The result is a versatile MIDI controller accompanied by the audio quality and realism which only Kurzweil's Contoured Sound Modeling sampling system can provide. This system uses 7 times oversampling and a 16-bit floating point format to provide a clear, clean, high-signal-to-noise ratio sound. And no matter how hard or soft a note is played, you won't hear any of that "grittiness" as the note decays a problem associated with conventional 12 and 16 bit samples. The K1000 boasts 120 presets and full 24-voice polyphony And if you want to control a full sampled orchestra, you can add any of the four 1000 SeriesTM Expanders to create a super-system with up to 108-voices and 10-outputs.

    Control and Flexibility
    The KlOOO's full multitimbral capa bilities let you make the most of all these voices. Any of MlDl's 96 control sources or performance features ~mono and poly pressure, attack and release velocity, key or note state can be patched to control any program parameter: LFO or envelope rates and depths, layer balance, amplitude and pitch control, etc. And there's ample RAM space on board to store up to 64 user-definable programs. In Multi-Mode, any program or patch can be assigned to any or all of MlDl's 16 channels. Dynamic voice allocation system automatically sees to it that voices never "sit idle" when they're needed on another channel. It's the perfect system for sequencer work or for any combination of sequenced parts and real-time playing. And to gain even more control, you can use our ObjectMoverlM software program for both Apple MacintoshlM and Atari computers. Both provide unlimited offline storage of program data as well as let you edit and play right from your computer keyboard.
