This is a SCSI Hard Drive Emulator Board for installation in a Kurzweil K2500, K2500S, K2500X, or K2500XS keyboard. This replaces the K2500's floppy drive. Think of it as a Solid State Hard Drive or SCSI Card Reader. It uses a 8GB SD Card for memory.This package includes the SCSI Emulator Board, floppy bracket, 8GB SD Card, and complete installation kit. The installation kit has a 40 data ribbon cable and easy to install instructions. The Emulator Board is powered by the K2500's floppy power cable. I have loaded thousands of high-quality Kurzweil samples and programs on the 8GB SD Card. K26 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 hard drive into four 2GB partitions and filled 3 of the partitions with samples and programs.
The K2500 is able to format/read/write to 8GB of a SCSI Hard Drive (four 2GB partitions). 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 K2500X and it works perfect. The SCSI Emulator Board has active termination and the SCSI ID# is set to ID# 1. I will change the SCSI ID# if you want a different ID#, let me know before the package ships.
Installation is simple and only takes 15-30 minutes. If you already have an internal SCSI hard drive installed and need a replacement drive, I sell a SCSI Emulator for the K2500R that will replace the hard drive in your K2500 keyboard.
K2500 owners; If you need any OS or Object file updates, let me know and I will copy the files to the memory card for you. Early versions of the OS could only use one 2GB partition, so you might need to update the OS and Object files to be able to use all four 2GB partitions.
I also sell SCSI Emulators for the K2000R, K2000 keyboard, K2500R, K2600 keyboard, and K2600R.
