Sep 21, 2014 - S4K PINK FLOYD Cover N1 COLLECTION on Kurzweil K2600 by S4K download. Torrent discografia completa aerosmith dreamed. What do you mean ”contacting us patches at space4keys com”???is there a. Want to do all-keyboard Pink Floyd covers in the studio.
I recently picked back up playing and am interested in purchasing a keyboard or two to play classic rock, hard rock, pink floyd, elton john for use at home, maybe occasional small local-ish gigs. I used to play (mostly) professionally, what feels like a lifetime ago - 80's through '94, mostly at bars intermixed with up-to moderate sized shows regularly and occasional studio time.
Main gear back then was a Korg DW-6000, Korg Poly-800, Oberheim Matrix 6R, and a Yamaha that I haven't looked up yet. I currently have a fairly decent digital piano that has a few good sounds that was already in the family so to speak. I have no idea what to purchase - would like to end up with a couple of keyboards for $500 to $600 total but more would be ok if the quality rises fairly quickly above that amount. No preference between new/used as long as reliable. I appreciate any advise / suggestions, thanks for reading!

You would definitely find the Pink Floyd patches for a Kurzweil, I've seen/ heard them and he used one himself. You'd certainly get a K2000 v3 rack fully expanded with your budget.
Not a keyboard though. Korg ROMplers from that era tends to be characterful and inconsistent (e.g. Strings can be a bit meh, brass and keys vary from meh to amazing), Roland more bright and cutting, very clean, more consistent and probably less characterful. Roland usually packed more samples into the PCM memory than Korg, who tend to go for character.
Both are great. Over here the Korgs were more popular than the Rolands with cover bands. But you'd always see Kurzweil's in the pit at musicals- those players were on more money, and the Kurz was just the best. If you don't mind carrying a digital piano to gigs, you can MIDI it to a Roland JV-1080 (or better, JV-2080 same thing but easier to use) which is cheap, reliable and expandable. Also there are thousands of free patches available online. You'll probably find someone somewhere who has programmed up the exact patches you need.
The keyboard versions of those JV modules is the XP-60, XP-50 and XP-80. All very nice genuinely semi-weighted actions. Finally, if you own a Mac, try MainStage. MIDI from your digital piano. It is awesome.
I was coming back with a couple of questions which you have answered. I will take a look at the K2000 v3, It turns out that the digital piano (Kawai PN80) that I have been recently stumbling around on has midi in/out connectors. With that being the case, I am thinking I could use it as a basic controller / workstation if I did go with the k2000 rackmount or JV-1080 rackmount. The Kawai's keyboard and chassis is nice while the particleboard stand is a bit lacking and too short (I prefer to stand) so if I could / did go that route the stand and I would have to sort out our differences Posting from my macbook pro at this time, will definitely check out Mainstage!

They have a few hundred preset sounds and all your bread-and-butter needs taken care of. Excellent grand piano, Rhodes, strings and pretty decent vintage analog sounds. You can even assign several 'favorites' for quick recall when playing live. One of my buddies is in a Pink Floyd cover band and he uses a Fantom X6 and a F08. You can pick up an X6 for under $800 these days. In addition to all the great sounds, there's a 16 track MIDI sequencer, tons of built-in drum rhythms, programmable arpeggiator, SAMPLING capability (my buddy has all the traffic sounds when they play 'On The Run') and if you get an X6 with audio expansion, it adds 8 STEREO audio tracks making the keyboard a mini DAW.
I also like running external gear through the X6's built-in multi-fx processor. Ha, you know it.
After listening to a Kurzweil 2600 I was sold, well on sound / features, not price as much but. So, now for my dilemma. There is a Kurzweil 2500XS available, it seems to be functionally solid and also probably a bit more than typically expected cosmetic damage.
