CatSynth Pic: Big Baby Kurzweil K2000S

The subject line says it all. This little tabby is clearly owning the Kurzweil K2000S synthesizer. Submitted by Ron Gallagher via our Facebook page.

The K2000 was a big deal in the 1990s (though we at CatSynth never had one ourselves).

he K2000S 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.

Steve has a music and opinion site and a cool cat comic as well. I think I've seen some more cat-synth pictures there…
