Remember ke Kurzweil VA-1? The synth that was announves on the Frankfurt messe from 2004. We dreamed of his power shaped oscillators, classic analog-style waveforms, 16 voices, DSP algorithms etc. it never came….. BUT WAIT!
Kurzweil annouced on there website that the VA-1 will get a second live in an (free ) limited edition upgrade for the PC3X:
The PC3X’s new Dynamic V.A.S.T. architecture is a huge step forward in synthesis, the fruit of several major strides we’ve made in improving processing power, flexibility and user-friendliness.
Good news for synth enthusiasts, we’ve seamlessly integrated our legendary.
For good measure we include an unlimited-track sequencer with 1536 PPQ resolution and more effects processing power than our acclaimed KSP8 processor, making the PC3X a full blown music production workstation. Add in USB, flash xD card port, a newly designed keyboard action, and a new intuitive user interface, and you’ve got the next generation of Kurzweil instruments.
In another huge development, we’ve resurrected the VA-1 Virtual Analog Synthesizer, having built it’s synthesis engine right into the new system. Hear the VA-1’s power-shaped, anti-aliasing oscillators combined with a newer, larger set of V.A.S.T. filters and non-linear processors and you’ll understand why the internet is buzzing about this feature.
VA1 Inside: anti-aliasing, power-shaped oscillators and DSP processing from Kurzweil’s VA1 prototype synth, capable of delivering authentic analog emulations as well as incredibly complex new sounds.
The VA-1 Synthesis Engine included free for a limited time! A $599.00 value, Offer ends 12/31/07.
