Kurzweil have come to the table this NAMM 2021 season, with the new K2700, featuring 88 fully weighted hammer-action keys, revamped sound engine and a myriad of control surfaces including 16 pads, a ribbon controller, programmable sliders and knobs, this is a fully fledged workstation.
The K2700 has 256 voices in a V.A.S.T (Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology) system, offering 32-layers per program, which makes for an incredible sounding 4.5 gigabytes of Factory Sounds straight out of the box. If you are into tweaking your own sounds and creating your own presets, this workstation also allows for a 3.5 gigabytes of user presets, which is enough to satisfy even the most picky customer.
But let’s not forget about its 6 operator FM engine, which is another treat for the synthesis fanatics. If you are not familiar with the concept of FM synthesis I suggest you check out introductory article here.
