How to create Korg M1 House piano sound on Kurzweil K2000?

Post by NCChao1268 » Wed Sep 06, 2017 11:35 pm

Was thinking of creating the Korg M1 House piano16 on a K2000- a somewhat similar synth. There is a very similar program called Program 42 BRIGHT PIANO but doesn't actually have the exact punchy -ness and plasticity of the M1 piano. Or you could start from Keymap 1 Grand Piano and shape it from there. Anyone might know which VAST values or algorithms to edit?

I remember making an M1 type piano by taking the piano keymap and running it through the "high frequency stimulator" DSP block.

Thanks for replying, that was how I created the M1 Piano 16 patch. The factory program 42 Bright Piano sounded somewhat similar to the M1 Piano and used the HI Freq simulator block in the algorithm. So I mainly shortened the envelope mostly the attack to match the punchy and plasticky sound of the m1 piano. Other slight adjustments were made to certain blocks in the algorithm such as the filter. In the end the sound is very similar.
