View Full Version : Burning CD's from Kurzweil
01-02-2002, 10:54 AM
I make sequences on a Kurzweil k2vx, with version 3.54 sofware. I now need to burn cd's with songs from my keyboard. I'm happy with the songs on my sequences, I use WindowsXP, have plenty of memory and a fairly fast cd burner,
but have no idea how to start getting the sounds from the keyboard onto the cd. I know it's simple once you know how, but what's the best way to do it?

My name is Eric Rodrigue. I'm a sales engineer at Sweetwater.
First you will need some way to get the audio into your computer. Either a a card or an external audio interface. There are many different types at various price points depending on your needs. Then you will need a CD burning software. There are a couple of options for this as well. By getting the right tools to put the audio of your Kurzweil into your computer, you will open up a whole new world of possibilities.
If you have any questions feel free to call me direct or email me. I'll be happy to help you.

Sort of the same answer as 'twitch' gave......
1. you need to input the analog signal (what you would send to an amp) from the music keyboard to the 'line-in' of your computer sound card.
2. Many sequencer programs can record both MIDI data and analog audio, and turn the save file into a 'wave or mp3' type of file, that can be played on the computer.
3. To 'burn' a cd (like what you can play in any music-cd player),usually the cd-rom unit comes with a program that allows you to convert the computer wave file to a regular music cd.
Most times you would have several songs to 'burn' onto 1 cd.
The burning process, when completed will 'lock' the cd so no more songs can be added, and then it is playable....just like a music-cd you would buy.
4. My favorite pick (which I seem to be talking a lot about lately) would be Power Tracks Pro from www.pgmusic.com
It is only $29 US, and has the record for analog and midi, and has a built in cd-burner utility.
