Kurzweil K2000 VP PRAM upgrade

Postby NCChao1268 » Fri Apr 14, 2017 12:33 am

Hello, I was thinking of expanding the PRAM on my Kurzweil K2000 VP, I've already installed the 64 MB or Ram. I was wondering if the PRAM upgrade I'm looking at now would be compatible with my Kurzweil K2000 VP? My K2000 has a 3.54 J (Janis board). I'm not too sure about the year of the instrument, though I would guess it is 1996, the same year as the K2VX, maybe someone could correct me.
Serial number of K2000 is 359706000328.

Here is a link to the PRAM: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kurzweil-PRAM-O ... Swn7JYD94N

The date of the PRAM says 1991, other info of the board says REV A

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks,
-Nathan

AFAIK the PRAM upgrade is compatible with both Janis and Calvin boards, it just expands P/Ram to 768Kb. Quite an expensive memory upgrade isn't it ?
Why are you thinking of upgrading , are you getting the "Cannot complete this load. Not enough memory" message ?
Here is a less expensive option , remanufactured with SMT :

Thanks for replying @Yekuku, I have seen that link before. Not too sure if older or newer PRAM expansions would work with my instrument. Would you know how to install this expansion? (which wires soldered, what wires needed, etc)
I plan to load a lot of samples onto the K2000, and do a lot of sequencing.
