NOTE: Formatted for Kurzweil Kxxxx keyboards

These Kurzweil CD-ROMs are in a proprietary Kurzweil format that can only be read by a K2000/K2500/K2600 series keyboard using a Kurzweil-compatible SCSI CD-ROM drive. These CD-ROMs can NOT be read by a Mac or PC. If you are interested in adding these sounds to your Kurzweil PC3K, we suggest that you try our Sweetwater PC3K Library, which has over 100 instruments selected from all nine of our Kurzweil CD-ROM libraries. The library comes on a 2GB thumb drive that's been formatted so that you can plug it directly into the PC3K and start loading. Since there will be plenty of room left over on the drive, we'll include the latest operating system and objects, as well as the currently available Kurzweil PC3K libraries (including the SynthScapes and Take 6 collections) and the K2661 ROM compatibility files.

When you actually play the cello, we're sure that you'll be convinced. The warmth, the feel and the rich animation will testify to Stratus Sounds' artistry and ear for detail. The triple-strike nylon guitar will redefine your concept of sampler dynamics. And beware, Stratus tympanis will bottom-out your monitors at the same level previously used to juice your 1000-samples-squeezed-into-4-megabytes percussion. Even if you should find that not all of the sounds included in this library are useful to you today, the value of having access to such a quantity of high quality sounds may greatly benefit future productions, especially when you rediscover those "misfits" to be fresh new options.

Stratus Sounds aren't just technically superior, they're creatively superior. While beneficial for the purpose of auditioning or even filling the background of a production, most sample libraries exhibit static, lifeless samples with little animation and an artificial vibrato, often looped immediately after the attack. In contrast, Stratus Sound samples are recorded by professional players of each instrument and are digitally edited with long loops to capture the dynamic articulations, natural vibrato, and complex phasing and harmonic changes characteristic of a well-executed performance. When properly positioned in a production, these sounds may fool even well trained ears. Even the most critical of listeners will appreciate the sheer musicality of these samples and the ease with which Stratus Sounds lend themselves to esthetically pleasing compositions.

not the right format

I called up asking if this would be compatible with Kontakt and the operator didn't really know but said probably. So I ordered it on faith... it doesn't work. Not it seems like I need to buy another piece of software to convert it to work on my mac.
