The K uses V. Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology which allows you to take any multi-sample, noise or waveform and process it using just about any synthesis technique. The source of these multi-samples are from the 8MB of ROM which hold tons of authentic and superb quality samples. The internal processing is bit with bit DACs. The K uses 31 sound-shaping algorithms to provide a variety of resonant filters, EQs, continuous panning, amplitude modulation, crossfade, distortion, digital wrap, waveshaper, pulse width modulation, high frequency enhancement, low frequency oscillators, hard sync oscillators and mixing oscillators, all with real-time MIDI control.

How can I save a multi-timbral setup? Think of this sort of like a "snap-shot" of all 16 channels and their current settings. When you load the file with that Master Table, the multi-timbral configuration will be recalled. Procedure: select the disk you wish to save to Current Disk field press [ SAVE ] scroll to the near the bottom of the bank list and select "Master" press [ OK ] if asked "Save dependent objects? If you answer yes, all RAM programs, songs, keymaps, etc. Note: you can also do a sysex dump of the Master Table to an external device capable of recording sysex.

Dependent Objects, however, are not dumped automatically along with the Master Table. KRZ files created by the K without any problems. However, there are a few differences to be aware of: ROM Drum samples. ROM Effects programs. The Effect page in the program editor always points to an Effect program, and has several parameters for real-time control. Typically, programs developed for the series will use factory default effects. When these programs are loaded into a K, they will not call the correct effect.

The K does not have the Digitech effects in it, so this is not an issue for the K ROM Keymaps. An effort was made to keep instrument keymaps in the same order as in the K because the keymap must be correct for a program to sound correct. Keymaps and have been replaced and subtle improvements in volume have been made to others. Programs using these keymaps will either say "Not Found" or call up a different Keymap.

Sequencing Issues. If a song was created on the original K and it uses the ROM presets, it will of course not call up the correct programs.

If the song was created on a K2vx or KVP and you load it into a K, it should play the song correctly, although you may find some differences with the drums. The K has all new programs, so once again, any program changes calling up ROM programs will not call up the correct sounds.

The K also has a K compatibility file. The compatibility files and manunals for the K and K can be downloaded from each respective product download area.

Version 3. The K saves files with a. K25 extension; the K saves them with a. K26 extension; the K saves them with a. KRZ extension. However, the file formats are the same. If the K has v3. K25 and. K26 extensions. However, if you use a computer to change the extension from. K26 to. KRZ, it can then load the file. Any programs which use the ROM drum samples will not play on the K As described in the previous section, the preset Digitech Effects are different in the K than the original K Because of this, any programs which use a preset effect will not sound correct, and since the K does not have the Digitech effect, the KDFX info is ignored.

If these parameters are left at their defaults, the program will load in identically. For a couple of other parameters, such as Impact, a value other than the default will cause the program not to be loaded if the K has version 3. Versions higher than 3. Any other programs in the file will be loaded. How can I tell how much memory I have available? Answer: Not enough memory to complete this load.

Sample RAM vs. In our example here, we have gone to Disk mode. It is used for saving user objects such as programs, keymaps, setups, QA banks, and sequences. In fact, everything that can be named and saved goes into the battery backed RAM except for the actual audio sample data. Its sole purpose is to hold user audio data samples while the power is on. Its contents erases when the unit is powered off. Programs, keymaps, setups, QA banks and sequences cannot access this memory; it is reserved strictly for RAM sample data.

The K25 and K26 series units hold up to Mb. Memory Management So if you get a message saying not enough memory to load it simply means you do not have enough PRAM left to load the file in question.

The next thing to figure out then is how to still find a way to load the desired file s. One brute force solution is to purchase and install the appropriate PRAM kit for your unit. There are several ways to go about this: Broad method: you could hard reset the machine and delete all user memory, providing you with a clean slate and full PRAM to work with. Of course you would want to save to disk any custom content not already backed up before prroceeding as hard resetting will clear any objects you have made or loaded.

Summary[ edit ] V. It is variable in that the user can select different signal paths, which contain different DSP functions, for use in creating and shaping a sound. A wide array of modulation sources can be assigned to various parameters within a signal path, and modulation sources can be combined to create new modulation sources. Details[ edit ] The basic component of a V. A layer on the K contains a single "algorithm", which contains up to four slots for user-assignable DSP functions. The algorithm assigned to a layer is preceded by several other functions, or "blocks". There is the "keymap" block, which determines which if any samples are assigned to the keyboard in the layer.
