Atomicsynth Posted March 15, 2022 Share Posted March 15, 2022 I realize Kurzweil brought a great deal forward in updates for the K2600. (I have one). KDFX V2 and Triple Modular Processing arrived in their version 4 update. However, in the present state of the K2700 there is no dedicated sampler and no graphical editing of loop points and related sample editing tools. It's a glaring omission. So much so that to me, it may be prefixed as K but is it really? I don't know if polyphonic portamento was ever implemented in the VA-1 but I'd really like to see it happen in the K2700's VA along with the possibility you inferred of faster envelopes extending into VAST because the K2600's envelopes are just not snappy. It's my understanding that KStart is not present in the K2700. It is an invaluable parameter for taming DSP's such as Shaper and Wrap on the K2600. I've also read concerns regarding what is considered as a poor refresh rate in the K2600 and hope this will be addressed in the K2700. I'd also like to know what you experience in large multisample load times when you check it out as I've read it's slow in assigning into keymaps, and thank you. I'd also like to know if the synth can be loaded and backed up to and from PC without needing to use a flash drive as a go between. If it's fully USB class compliant one should be able to. The manual for the K2700, in addition to stating the need to refer back to the K2600's manual too often, now describes non VA VAST as being not recommended for audio use. It's concerning. I think the question is how much one is willing to bank in faith on development through future updates and if what isn't there now will end up happening or not and if it ultimately is tied by how old an architecture VAST is. Does this then limit what really can be done regarding updates? I am definitely in the watch and wait camp presently. I also agree with your wish that the display was larger. Thank you for your ongoing review. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
