This 8 channel, rack mount signal processor is designed for the professional and semi-professional musician/engineer/producer requiring high quality signal processing and demanding unparalleled real-time control. It is the worlds only 8-channel multi-effects processor with twice the processing power of Kurzweil's KDFX system. The Kurzweil KSP8 includes all the high-quality effects algorithms from KDFX, and adds surround reverbs and other new effects.
The KSP8 breaks through traditional barriers and delivers with a wide range of flexibility. The base unit comes with 4 analog inputs and outputs, and stereo AES/EBU in and out, for a total of 6 possible channels. An I/O option slot provides a choice of expanding with 4 additional channels of analog I/O or 8 channels of Alesis Lightpipe I/O, Tascam TDIF, or AES/EBU I/O. Inputs and outputs may be flexibly routed. 24 bit precision is maintained throughout. The unit offers a selectable master clock, dedicated EQ, and can process 8 mono channels of audio simultaneously, making the KSP 8 an ideal tool for todays MDM based studios.
The extensive list of DSP algorithms include lush reverbs, realistic rooms, throaty flangers, dreamy choruses, grunged up distortion, aliasing and chaos generators, rotary speakers, cabinet simulators, Lazerverbs, a full range of dynamics processors, enhancers, many types of EQs, filters and so much more. There are many tempo based effects which can slave to MIDI clock or are controlled form the internal clock. A 2U-rack module, the KSP 8 provides an expandable design, including a SmartMedia Card and a 240 X 64 CCFT backlit display.
