Hidden Digitech Preset Effects In Your K2000/K2500

Sweetwater’s Chief Soundware Engineer, Daniel Fisher, received the following from David Fox at Kurzweil, and passed it to us: “Most of you are aware that the effects processor in the Kurzweil K2000 originated in the Digitech 256 rackmount processor, and that the Digitech 256 comes with 127 preset effects. Since the Digitech has 127 slots, there are 127 possible effects that you can call up on the K2000/2500. To spread those numbers out over the 10 banks, they are accessible using the following numbers: 1-37, 100-109, 200-200, etc. up to 900-909. We overwrite the first 47 presets with our own effects settings (0-37 and 100-109). We create our own objects in the Setup ROM which cover up the ones Digitech created.But the other 80 effects (#’s 48-127) are still accessible by typing in the appropriate K2000/2500 number (a number between 200 and 909). The K2000/2500 will say “Not Found” because there is no Kurzweil object in ROM at that number. But it still sends a program change to the Digitech, calling up that number. You must type the number in (as opposed to scrolling with the dial) because when scrolling, the operating system is designed to skip over “Not Found” object numbers. You can also send a program change (with FX Mode set to Master and sending the command on the FX Channel) to call up the effect.Keep in mind there is nothing special about these effects – they are simply the presets that Digitech chose.” Thanks Daniel!
