This is a SCSI Hard Drive Emulator Board for installation in a Kurzweil K2000R, K2000RS, or any K2000R (rack). It replaces the floppy drive.Think of it as a Solid State SCSI Hard Drive or SCSI Card Reader/Writer. It uses a 8GB SD Card for memory. This package includes the SCSI Emulator Board, 8GB SD Card, and complete installation kit. The installation kit has a ribbon cable, bracket, mounting hardware, and easy to install instructions. The Emulator Board is powered by the floppy drive power cable.
This item is for the K2000R (Rack), not the K2000 keyboard. I have configured the Emulator Board into 4 SCSI ID#'s and loaded thousands of high-quality Kurzweil samples and programs on the 8GB SD Card. K25 sample files and program files, no wave files. Electric guitars, acoustic guitars, clean guitars, distorted guitars, basses, analog synths, digital synths, all the classic synths, Hammond B3s, Vox, Farfisa, Rhodes, Wurlitzers, clavinets, vocoders, grand pianos, voices, brass, orchestral instruments, percussion, congas, drum kits, loops, and more. This is a killer collection of samples and programs.
I have formatted the 8GB SD Card into four 2GB partitions and filled 3 of the partitions with samples/programs. Your K2000R/K2000RS must have OS 3.54 or OS 3.87 to be able to read 2GB. The OS versions before 3.54 could only read 1GB. Since this SD Card is already formatted to 2GB, make sure your OS is 3.54 or 3.87. The OS version is shown briefly on the display when you turn the K2000R on.The K2000R can normally just use 2GB of a hard drive. By configuring the Hard Drive Emulator Board as 4 SCSI ID numbers, the K2000 can access 8GB. The SCSI Emulator Board has no moving parts like a SCSI Hard Drive, so it's completely silent and should last forever. I have this exact model of SCSI Emulator Board in my K2000R and it works perfect. The SCSI Emulator Board has active termination and the SCSI ID#'s are set to ID# 2, 3, 4, and 5. I will change the SCSI ID#'s if you want different ID#'s, let me know before the package ships. If you have any external SCSI devices, the external device must be set to a different ID#, or you'll have an ID# conflict. Installation is simple and only takes 20 minutes. I also sell SCSI Emulators for the K2000 keyboard and other Kurzweil's.
