Best of Analog - Andrew Schlesinger / New Age
 K2000 format program diskette

Kurzweil K2000 Best of Analog

The Kurzweil K2000 "Best of Analog" diskette was programmed by Andrew Schlesinger and offers a directory for Analog and one for New Age.

The "Analog" offering is particularly strong, with outstanding emulations of classic synthesizers.

The "New Age" folder is also quite charming, offering, among others, the classic Korg M1 "Lore" sample as the base of several well-crafted patches.

Check out some audio examples from this diskette:
