256 voices of V.A.S.T. polyphony
K2700 has over 5× the polyphony of any previous K2 series model.
4.5 gigabytes of factory sounds
K2700 serves up a deep sound library of over 1,500 factory Programs and over 700 Multi combinations organized into 13 instrument categories ranging from pianos to synths to orchestral sounds and more, featuring Kurzweil's optimized unlooped German D, Japanese C7 and Triple Strike pianos, Classic Tine EPs ('73 & '77), plus updated sounds from the popular SP6, PC3/4 and KORE64 expansion.
Patented FlashPlay technology
FlashPlay provides K2700 with a staggering amount of horsepower: up to 8GB total capacity with zero loading time and ultrafast performance.
3.5 gigabytes of user sample memory
Load up to 3.5GB of your own custom samples into non-volatile flash memory in WAV, AIFF (up to 16-bit/96kHz) and Kurzweil formats (.FOR, .PC4, .P3K, .KRZ, .K25, .K26).
V.A.S.T. was born in the K2 series. K2700 expands on Kurzweil's legendary Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology, offering 32 layers per Program, deeply customizable signal paths and a host of modular DSP tools including new oscillators, filters and effects.
6-operator FM engine
K2700 has a 6-operator FM synthesis engine with the ability to load original FM SysEx files. FM layers are a great addition to V.A.S.T. Programs and can be combined with VAST features to go far beyond classic FM synthesis.
Embedded within K2700 are powerful anti-aliasing, power-shaped oscillators along with DSP processing from Kurzweil's mythical VA1 concept synth, capable of delivering authentic analog emulations as well as incredibly complex new sounds.
KB3 ToneReal organs
With sounds modeled after classic organs, a full complement of tonewheel controls are immediately accessible including 9 realistic drawbars, rotary speed, chorus/vibrato, brake, percussion and more.
Powerful effects engine
Award-winning reverbs, delays, choruses, flangers, phasers, distortions, rotary amplifiers, compressors and more are all fully editable from the user interface. K2700 also offers a global Master FX section featuring 3-band EQ and compression.
K.S.R. Kurzweil String Resonance
K.S.R. provides piano string resonance modeling for enhanced acoustic piano performance.
88-note Italian hammer-action keyboard
Every sound within K2700 is perfectly matched to its 88-note fully-weighted keyboard with aftertouch. Further customize the MIDI velocity and pressure response to suit your personal playing style.
16-zone Multi controller mode
Construct massive sonic combinations via Kurzweil's renowned Multi mode (aka Setup mode), offering 16 zones of unparalleled MIDI controller capabilities with each zone supporting over 60 separate physical controllers.
K2700 features a 16-track internal sequencer to record, edit, mix and produce your own tracks – all in the box. Import .MID MIDI files as well as Kurzweil PC3/PC4/Forte family songs.
16 MIDI CC sequencers
Add sonic animation to your sounds via 16 simultaneous MIDI CC step sequencers for modulation sequencing.
16 simultaneous Riff Generators
Trigger and manipulate up to 16 simultaneous MIDI sequences on the fly. Select from an internal library of patterns or record/import your own.
Looking for a pulse? Activate up to 16 independent arps (1 per Program, 16 per Multi) and dive into the arpeggiator's powerful 'step sequencer' environment.
Built-in ribbon controller
Bend pitch from musically subtle variations to deep dives? Of course. But then, go beyond the expected and control filters, volume, tempo, distortion and more. Configure the ribbon to have one control section that runs its entire length or to have three sections of equal length acting independently.
16 pad triggers
Use the 4×4 grid of velocity-sensitive pads to trigger drums, percussion and more with precision. Further, activate zone mutes, trigger notes/chords, filters, add layers, control the arp, CC sequencers and more.
Programmable sliders, knobs and buttons
K2700's generous control panel boasts 9 sliders, 9 knobs and 10 buttons, all programmable. Internally control volumes, pans, filters, FX wet/dry, envelopes, mutes, etc. Externally transmit any desired MIDI CCs to your DAW host.
Widescreen color display
Navigate K2700 with a clear, easy-to-read 4.3" 480×272 widescreen color LCD display.
Master transport controls
Use the Transport section to control recording and playback of the onboard 16-track sequencer as well as your favorite DAW via MMC and System Real-Time messages.
Categorized sound selection
K2700's easy Category and Program/Multi selection features customizable category defaults.
Pitch/mod wheels and transpose controls
Front panel pitch/modulation wheels for expressive performances are accompanied by dedicated -/+ transpose controls for quick and easy key changes.
Pedal to the metal
K2700 has 2 assignable switch pedal jacks and 2 assignable CC pedal jacks. The switch pedal connections support half-damper functionality and up to 4 switch pedals with 2 pedals per jack.
Integrated USB audio interface
Record straight to your DAW via USB, no separate interface required. Connect your choice of line/instrument/mic source and route audio from K2700 and its analog inputs to your DAW, with or without effects. The audio interface section features per-channel gain knobs, peak level LEDs, Hi-Z switching and +48V phantom power.
Live audio inputs with effects
Plug in and jam along with an external audio source via 1/4" / XLR combo inputs. Process the inputs through dedicated realtime FX to create new textures. Sweeten your vocal or backing tracks for live performance and internally mix the signal with K2700's own output.
Balanced audio outputs
Connect to your favorite mixer, amp or studio monitors and route K2700's audio signal – including input from the audio interface – among the 4 1/4" TRS balanced outputs (2 stereo pairs, A & B). K2700 features pristine 32-bit D-to-A converters with automatic mono switching on main outs and a back-panel 1/4" stereo headphone jack.
USB MIDI, audio and storage
A single USB cable allows you to use K2700 as both a MIDI controller and audio sound source with your DAW. USB host functionality further allows for connecting USB class-compliant devices such as an alternate keyboard controller or an external fader/knob unit. USB also provides for storage of custom content and system updates.
