Kurzweil K2000R Patchman MusicThe 2000-SERIES

for KURZWEIL K2000, K2000R, K2500, K2500R, K2600, K2600R, K2661, & COMPATIBLES

Without question, the Kurzweil K2000, K2500, K2600 , K2661 series synthesizers/samplers are among the most powerful sound generators are ever made. The fact that they are so highly regarded by professionals and are still supported by Kurzweil so many years after their introduction is a testament to their musical power. The 'vast' possibilities of these synths may never be fully explored. As an official developer for Kurzweil for many years, PATCHMAN MUSIC realizes that not everyone has the time needed to create quality sounds on such a complex instrument. This is why we created the 2000-SERIES. The 2000-SERIES allows you to concentrate on your music and leave the programming to us. You can purchase the entire 2000-SERIES on CD ROM or individual soundbanks on floppy disk.


Kurzweil K2600 Patchman MusicCD JPGThe 2000-SERIES on CD ROM...

The 2000-SERIES for the Kurzweil K2000, K2500, K2600, K2661 and compatibles now contains 160 soundbanks. It's packed with over 3,180 Programs and over 354 megs of samples on one easy to use and surprisingly inexpensive K2000/2500/2600/2661 CD-ROM. The CD ROM offers an incredible value at less than .87¢ per soundbank!!!

Kurzweil Samples SOundbanks Patches Cd ROM programs CD ROM now only $139 (US) + shipping. New Lower Price!!

PLEASE NOTE: The Kurzweil uses a CD ROM format that is not fully DOS compatible. This is referred to as the "Native Kurzweil" format.

In order to use a "Native Kurzweil" formatted CD ROM with the Kurzweil you must have a CD ROM drive connected directly to the Kurzweil's SCSI jack. Most PCs cannot read "Native Kurzweil" formatted CD ROMs without crashing.

Alternatively, we can ship this Kurzweil library in ISO9660 format. This format can be used with later OS Kurzweils and the files can be viewed and backed up on a PC or Mac. This format allows you to use your PC or Mac to copy the smaller banks to a PC formatted floppy which can be loaded into the Kurzweil. BUT keep in mind that banks larger than a single floppy would need to be split somehow with a special utility- if it even exists. Because of this we recommend the "Native Kurzweil" CD format for most users.

Please specify either "Native Kurzweil" or "ISO9660" format when ordering. Please see below for additional CD ROM details.

2000-SERIES CD ROM UPGRADES!

PATCHMAN MUSIC values you as a customer. To prove it, we now offer an unprecedented CD ROM upgrade policy. If you are an original purchaser of the entire 2000-SERIES (CD ROM or floppy disk set) we will upgrade you to the current version CD ROM for only $50. Simply send us your original 2000-SERIES CD ROM and we will replace it with the current CD ROM version. This price INCLUDES shipping to the continental United States. Foreign orders must add $10 for shipping/handling.

Important System Requirements

To load most of the these sampler banks you must have at least 2 megs of sample RAM installed in your Kurzweil. Many banks in this library are 1.5 megs or less and will load into 2 megs. Several banks are much larger and require up to 16 megs of sample RAM. The amount of sample RAM required is stated in the description of each bank. Please make sure you have an appropriate amount of sample RAM installed in your Kurzweil before ordering. If you have 16 megs (or more) of sample RAM in your Kurzweil you will be able to load any bank in the 2000-Series.


2000-SERIES Features...

  • All soundbanks are fully programmed and ready to use and most include at least 10 Programs that highlight the new samples. Most banks have many more Programs than this. Unlike other companies that just sell you raw samples, expecting you to spend hours setting up Programs, we have already done the work for you. There is absolutely no programming necessary with the 2000-SERIES! These are NATIVE Kurzweil banks programmed on the Kurzweil.
  • Compatible with the K2500 and K2600. (Some drum sounds may sound slightly different on the K2500/2600/2661). KDFX owners may want to reprogram the effects to take advantage of the KDFX features. These programs were not programmed for KDFX.
  • All samples have been fully optimized using digital sound processing techniques. A great deal of care went into designing these sounds. There are no clicks, pops, or obnoxious loops in the 2000-SERIES.
  • By eliminating unnecessary circuitry when sampling we avoid any degradation in sound quality. You get the most dynamic, brilliant sounding samples possible.
  • Most drum kits conform to the GM drum note assignment. No need to remap drums!
  • Most drum disks include at least 3 or 4 fully programmed, 32-layer GM drum kit Programs utilizing full stereo panning with proper effects levels on each individual drum.

We are very excited about the 2000-SERIES library and we hope you will enjoy using these sounds as much as we enjoyed creating them.

"Wow! I ordered the K2000 library for my K2000R from Patchman Music and installed two of the sets today. WOW! The expression control through my ancient WX11 is amazing! Thanks to Matt, I now have a library of over 3000 Kurzweil K2000 sounds that can be used by any MIDI controller plus tons of great sounds that fully exploit the unique characteristics of my wind controller. My K2000R was a great piece of gear, but now it is even better. This is the best investment I have ever made that yielded such tremendous benefits. Thank you Matt!"

"I highly recommend the Patchman Music wind synth library. In my opinion these are the best patches available for pro wind synth players. I find that most of the sounds are very very good." - Gary Bias (M.C. Hammer, Earth, Wind & Fire, Randy Crawford)

"I just got ... the 4 disks for wind controller (#1,2,74,75) which IMHO are excellent and were well worth the money. My main criteria was how well they work with a WX7, but Patchman did some serious K2000 programming to optimize for breath control, and many of the patches are drum programs to get the extra layers. The samples are clean and well-looped. Recommended."

Volumes preceded by astrisks (***) are priced differently than the other Volumes (when ordering sounds on floppy disk) because they are either multi-disk Volumes or wind controller Volumes. Multi-disk Volumes generally contain a single keymap of the highest quality samples possible. These "no compromise" Volumes contain extra long length samples with high sampling rates for superior clarity and seamless loops.

PLEASE NOTE: The older OS version Kurzweils use a CD ROM format that is not fully DOS compatible. This is referred to as the "Native Kurzweil" format.

In order to use a "Native Kurzweil" formatted CD ROM with the K2000, K2500, or K2600 you must have the CD ROM drive connected directly to the Kurzweil. Most PCs cannot read Kurzweil formatted CD ROMs without crashing.

Alternatively, we can ship this Kurzweil library in ISO9660 format. This format can be used with later OS Kurzweils and the files can be viewed and backed up on a PC or Mac. This format allows you to use your PC or Mac to copy the smaller banks to a PC formatted floppy which can be loaded into the Kurzweil. BUT keep in mind that banks larger than a single floppy would need to be split somehow with a special utility- if it even exists. Because of this we recommend the "Native Kurzweil" CD format for most users.

Please specify either "Native Kurzweil" or "ISO9660" format when ordering.

To calculate shipping charges please go to the ONLINE ORDER FORM.

Formats: CD ROM (when purchasing the entire 2000-SERIES only), K2000/2500/K2600/K2661 floppy disk (for orders of any size). We can also ship this CD ROM in the "Native Kurzweil" format or ISO9660 format. (See above for details.) Please specify your preferred format when ordering.

User Comments...

"I highly recommend the Patchman Music wind synth library. In my opinion these are the best patches available for pro wind synth players. I find that most of the sounds are very very good." - Gary Bias (M.C. Hammer, Earth, Wind & Fire, Randy Crawford)

"...very impressive Kurzweil K2000 sounds ranging from realistic woodwind programs that make good use of the new Orchestral ROM upgrade to unique lead sounds." - Recording Magazine (1/95)

"I purchased your Kurzweil CD last week and spent the weekend exploring it. I'd just like to say that you've done an amazing job here. Just thinking about the many hours it would take me to program just one of your breath/wind banks makes me tired! The quality on all banks I've had a chance to audition is simply excellent. And how great to finally get really good programs for some of my favorite instruments! Thanks very much and please keep me posted about future soundbanks for the K2500."

"Just wanted to let you know the 2000-Series CD ROM is outstanding! While I haven't gone through every last Volume yet, from what I've heard so far, the programming is magnificent. I've either owned and/or played most of the instruments from which you've sampled and the accuracy is amazing. Now, I gotta get the P/RAM for my K2500 :-) Keep up the good work and take care."

"I looked at many options and recently bought the K2000 CD from Patchman. The variety and bang for the buck made the CD a must have for my small library. I haven't reviewed all of the sounds but was particularly interested in the accordians. There are a number of different timbres to work with - all of which sound great. These samples combined with effective programming really capture the essence of different squeeze boxes. The minimoog samples have the very quick attack and/or the short rise time I associate with the analog Moog. This bank provides a wide selection of strong punchy programs with interesting layers. I immediately incorporated two of these samples into my performance banks. All the different instruments work well together in terms of dynamics, tone and playability. Patchman was a pleasure to deal with and delivered all materials as requested."

"I've got the whole library. There are lots of 'moog'-ish and techno type bass sounds. All in all, I think the Patchman stuff is a good value. The number of patches per buck is hard to beat. You will get a lot more patches per buck from Patchman."

"As I spend more time messing with the sounds, I am finding more and more excellent patches, and many of the samples...are well done in terms of looping and sound quality. IMHO, this library is well worth the price, especially if you are looking for an inexpensive way to bolster your selection of sounds."

"I purchased the Patchman series last year, and found them to be very useful. I play wind controller with a K2500R, and the wind controller banks were worth the price of the entire package to me." - Al Jewer, Laughing Cat Studio

"I got the entire Patchman library and am very satisfied with it. In particular, I have the best trumpet and sax patches I've ever had...good enough to fool people totally from the next room! I'd also single out the basses as particularly good. Drum sounds are also excellent!"

"I received the Kurz CD this morning, well packaged and everything. Thanks for taking such good care of all the details. The sounds are awesome, very well sampled and represent huge, huge value. So hats off, excellent job. Hope to use 'm for many years to come. Probably, I won't need half of my synths anymore, practically all the sounds I need are on the Kurz CD. Well, I am very happy with it, thanks again!!"

"The Patchman sounds that have been optimized for the BC are great. I find that I've never been able to play single note lines more expressively than ever before. The patches respond very well to breath control. The brass section I sequenced sounds WAY better than anything I was able to play with my fingers. I played each part into the sequencer separately so that they would sound like they were played by individual instruments. I was able to tongue an articulation, let the volume come down, shape the note, do swells, etc, that all felt natural. I played a lead on a Sanborn-type alto sax patch over a sequence I created and it sounds great. The trumpet, 'bone, and alto/tenor/bari/bass saxes were great."
