All time classic synth . Brillaint filters , vast is amazing , great sound , totally stable . Digitech built in effects are crap , get an external processor . Cant sample while play is the only real limitation . No-one at sonic state seems to mention what the VP does differently from a plain k2000 . Basically it has updated d/a from the k2500 and the k2500 rom set so it will play k25 patches with rom wave forms properly . this is great if you have a k25 as you can get some extra polyphony cheaply and still play all your patches . the k25 rom set is alot better also . It also has latest 3.54 o/s which with extra p-ram gives 8 8 layer "drum" programs instead of 1 on a traditional k2 . Its updated d/a's are great , alot better than the earlier k2s . I have not had a chance to compare with a brand new k2vx but they probably also have new d/a's also .

not the bees knees for everyone but if your thinking about it , get it , its the core of everything you will ever do . Artists like Frontline assembly have relesed whole projects completed within 1 k2000 only .

one of the most powerful musical instruments ever created on this planet , the end

well id been jonesen' for a k2000 for years so the VP was just what i needed, in the right price range,considering its new op. sys.,reads wav. files, etc...i like to consider it as a matrix6 or betterwith samples as osc.s. i love the thing and would never give it up, if your into experimentation in a single box, i dont think it can be beat!

There are a few comments about the price of K2000s. I bought a new K2000R rack for $1350 from sweetwater about 3 months ago. I've heard of even cheaper prices since then. In anybody's terms, $1200-1400 for a combined synth / sampler is excellent value.

The kurz is a fine synth, capable of everything from close to old style analog to modern sample playback synthesis. And it's also an excellent sampler to boot.

Do yourself a favour and check it out. All you are going to hear at your local music store is the onboard ROM set which is OK, so take a bunch of Brian Cowell patches (http://www.sweetwater.com/k2000/b-cowell) and hear some of the amazing things that the VAST synthesis is capable of.

I would part with all my other synths before giving up my K2000R.

I really think that the original K2000 and the K2500 are overpriced big time but the K2000VP is priced just right. For what it offers: 8 outs, sampling, 2 SCSI ports, great sound synthesis, expandability - it's great. I used to have a K2000VP and I'am looking to buy a K2000RVP now.
