The 1200 Pro I is a fascinating and cultured beast. The natural instrument sounds generated from sampled waveforms are truly excellent. But the 1200 Pro I has another face. Via a broad selection of basic waveforms, combined with flexible envelope and oscillator control, plus the ability to add multiple layers to each sound (etc, etc) this is a sophisticated synthesizer that can keep the avid progammer enthralled for many a happy hour. I have generated great sounds ranging from a realistic accoustic piano with soft string accompaniment, to a Prophet 5 sound-alike, to a pulsing phased synth arpeggiator, to filter-like effects. Incidentally, these patches are available for FTP download at URL: This is a real enthusiast's synth that admirably combines old and new techniques of sound synthesis. Aaah - if only they'd given it lots of knobs to twiddle instead if push-button digital programming. And David Etheridge is involved with a great Yahoo users group dealing with technical issues + for this family of synths at URL: I also wax lyrical about the 1200 Pro I at URL:

An potential classic made even better. More sounds, 1000 patches over MIDI without any of that Bank Select controller nonsense, and improved controller destinations over MIDI. In addition, it remembers which MIDI channels you switched off whn powered down. Despite what other people say about the stereo outs, it's not a problem because of all the onboard effects and processing available. Add to that the fact that you'ld nedd 24 inputs on a mixing desk just for a Pro 1! Wonderful, wonderful. I could say that they don't make them like this any more, but you'ld probably have to get a K2000 to get any better.

I have a Kurzweil K1200. I've had one since around

when they came out on the market. (1990)

It is a great keyboard, save the fact that it won't

record. I'll keep it, though!!!
