The Kurzweil K2000 is a professional looking as well as a professional sounding synth. The layout of the synth is very well organized and put together. The workflow of the Kurzweil is very simple an that was the reason that I loved using it. The Kurzweil K2000 has a lot of on board effects, including flange, rotary simulation, re verb, chorus, delay, and multi-tap just to name a few. It has an on board sampler with 2MB of RAM and you can even expand the Ram to 64 MB for a reasonable price. Though the Kurzweil K2000 came out in 1991 it still has all of the up to date specs to still make it a great board in the current music industry. The Kurzweil K2000 is a 61 key board with velocity and after touch.


You will have full control over the patches on the Kurzweil K2000. The manual is clear and easy to understand, you will need to glance at the manual a few times until you get the flow of the keyboard down. It is set up different from other popular keyboards and plus with it being over 20 years old, there are a lot of changes. It comes loaded with over 200 patches.


Sounds are realistic and they have warmth and depth to them. The effects are pretty standard for today's music, but at the time when the Kurzweil K2000 came out the effects were great and up to date. After touch and velocity on the Kurzweil K2000 are pretty good, as they are on most all of Kurzweil’s boards.


The quality of the Kurzweil K2000 is one thing that you just cant deny, that is the best part of the board. It is well built and well design. You will have no problem using it, and its built like a tank. I have used a lot of Kurzweil boards over the years and they have all been well built. So anything from Kurzweil is a good idea to purchase. The K2000 is a great choice.
