(KDFX) Kurzweil Digital Effects Overview

KDFX ® (Kurzweil Digital Effects) combines new, state of the art custom Kurzweil VLSI chips with powerful DSP software algorithms offering K2500/K2600/K2661 owners the best sounding, most expressive, powerful, and creative set of effects available on the planet!

(KDFX is built into the K2600/2661 models.)

The K2500 KDFX upgrade option includes Kurzweil's custom designed plug in hardware DSP option, along with new software objects, which assign the programs and setups to KDFX.

KDFX offers over 100 effects algorithms arranged into 260 effects "presets". Presets are presented in over 150 "studio" configurations. Up to 4 separate stereo effects plus a global auxiliary stereo effect are available. KDFX also includes two separate input EQs for each of the 4 stereo (or 8 mono) buses.

The Studio - The Heart of KDFX. At the top level of the KDFX is a new object called a Studio. A Studio is essentially a snapshot of the 16 mono (or 8 stereo) input EQs, 8 mono (or 4 stereo) bus assignments, level and panning (or balance) settings, up to 4 preset effects plus a global auxiliary effect, FX and auxiliary bus send levels, gain control of mix level, and 1/4" audio output jack assignments. In other words, the studio can be configured to process all 8 mono inputs and outputs (A/L, A/R, B/L, B/R, etc.) or, if you are working in stereo, the studio can be configured to operate as a true 4 stereo bus device; any combination in between can also be achieved.

KDFX Structure

A World of Effects - Many years of research and development have paid off! KDFX's effects are absolutely stellar in quality. Numerous effects algorithms give you a wide variety of possibilities, many feature metering in the display to give you instant feedback for your effects settings.

The Ultimate in Real Time Control - Kurzweil's presets offer many control parameters because we know you'll want to see just what you can create and explore what is possible.

You can modulate up to 18 user selectable parameters (just about all the parameters found in a studio) in real-time from the K2500/K2600/K2661 Program or Setup, or via MIDI.

For the keyboard, the sliders control many effects parameters from program and setup mode (rack users can also take advantage of this by sending the appropriate MIDI controller numbers from their external controller).

V.A.S.T. and KDFX without Sampling!

Live Mode - now allows you to take any signal from virtually any source - analog (mono/stereo), or digital (AES-EBU, SPDIF) or ADAT® or TDIF® formats (with Kurzweil's DMTi - Digital Multi-Track interface) - and process it in real time through the entire acclaimed V.A.S.T. synthesis engine as well as the new KDFX section. And all this power is under real-time control.

Just Imagine: Choices from among 31 V.A.S.T. algorithms on your next guitar or vocal track, add killer effects on top, control everything in real time, add different effects to your sequenced parts, mix everything internally, and send it out digitally!

KDFX is available for ALL K2500 model instruments as a service center upgrade. See your local dealer today for details and check it out for yourself.
