This is a SCSI Hard Drive Emulator Board for installation in a Kurzweil K2500R or K2500RS (rack unit). 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. 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 8GB SD card into four 2GB partitions and filled 3 of the partitions with samples and programs. The K2500R 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 K2500R 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 20 minutes. 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. Please let me know your current OS version, and if you have any ROM Boards installed. I also sell SCSI Emulators for the K2000R, K2000 keyboards, K2VP, K2VX, K2500 keyboards, and K2600R.
