Kurzweil’s V.A.S.T. (Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology) synth engine is more than 30 years old. But – between the fact that it was way ahead of its time and the fact that it’s been significantly enhanced over the years – it is still an extremely deep and rewarding platform for synthesis.
This video, via Lars UK, offers an introduction to the V.A.S.T. synthesis technology used in the Kurzweil K series of synths, including the K2000, K2500, K2600 and even their recently introduced K2700.
