88-Key Keyboard not very heavy compared to a real piano.
The modulation wheels are easy to handle, they are both vertical (yamaha). The strip above the keys and simply enjoyable!
The sustain pedal that comes with is really good, and sounds are as true sustain (for piano).
It's a keyboard to plug in stereo. It has entries SCSI, floppy disks in HD format.
The bank of presets (factory sounds) is already provided (198sons). Acoustic instruments such as violin, brass immitis are damned good!
The Kurzweil K2500X suitable for all styles of music. All sounds are editable and can also create any right once you have the RAM on the machine.

UTILIZATION

For immediate use, the keyboard is very easy to access. We just need to read the first pages of the manual (on almost 300 .....) to understand the buttons and go! It is fast in

As for editing sounds, it's something else ... Being a fade programming I did not have Taté ... But it is quite complex in view of the possibilities.

The manual is clear enough and well enough!

SOUNDS

For what I play ... (Rock) .. It is perfect.
The many possibilities for split keyboard (in 8 parts!) Can consist of pieces of classical
As mentioned above, the sounds are extremely realistic for a 1997 keyboard!
Personally, trumpets and violin are wonderful for jazz, for example (there is the sound of Miles Davis in the presets: P)
Some lead was still editing to review their sounds a little better ... but overall the programs are well done .. Besides, the "acoustic piano" in the preset is really ugly ...

OVERALL OPINION

I just buy the OCCAZ with piano and ROM is that the World and happy. I love everything about this stuff!
Before that I worked in all Triton (Korg) I found (extreme, the studio of Roland Fantom .....), to ... These are very good machines with very good sound (newer machines)
But the rest of the keyboard K2500X which I found most charming and merit. Because in 1997, with the keyboards sound like, should not have much yen.

Then spend € 5000 for a K2600 ... I do not know if I do it again because this choice Kurzweil does not change much ...

Now it remains to buy some Rack (Triton, Akai, Roland or Yamaha) to flesh it all;)
