Floppy disk Kurzweil4Amiga (K2000 library straight from disc)



The K2000 uses V.A.S.T. (Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology) which allows you to take any multi-sample, noise or waveform and process it using just about any synthesis technique. The source of these multi-samples are from the 8MB of ROM which hold tons of authentic and superb quality samples. The internal processing is 32-bit with 18-bit DACs. The K2000 uses 31 sound-shaping algorithms to provide a variety of resonant filters, EQs, continuous panning, amplitude modulation, crossfade, distortion, digital wrap, waveshaper, pulse width modulation, high frequency enhancement, low frequency oscillators, hard sync oscillators and mixing oscillators, all with real-time MIDI control.

The K2000's have been used by Robert Miles, Pink Floyd, Jean Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode, Hardfloor, Tori Amos, Stevie Wonder, Nick Rhodes (Duran Duran), Bon Harris (Nitzer Ebb), Front Line Assembly, KMFDM, LTJ Bukem, Nine Inch Nails, Massive Attack, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Laurent Garnier, and Luther Vandross.
(from http://www.vintagesynth.com)

That's it! This is the full library converted to 8 bit, with loops perfectly preserved. All patches come from the Kurzweil K2000 floppy images I've found around there, and includes some legendary sounds (have a look at the synth folder) ready to use in whatever-tracker...

(...merry xmas and that...)

I hope you like it! F$$K THE OBSOLESCENCE!

Thanks for your work on this, and for sharing the result.

I've downloaded it but won't have time to play with it for a while yet.

Did you think about uploading your sample packs to Aminet?

I didn't know if these libraries are suitable for that site, If anyone wants to upload them it I would be happy.

If I remember right Aminet has a directory for samples. You may check the existing sample packs. For uploading you just need a proper readme. Read the Aminet documentation on its site.
