The VK-8 takes rotary speaker modeling to a whole new extreme, using proprietary COSM technology to model not only the unique sound of a rotary speaker, but the construction of tube amp circuits, actual speaker cabinet characteristics and its natural ambience. Such attention to detail is what gives the VK-8 its superior sound. A killer overdrive effect doesnt hurt either. While classic organ sounds are the foundation of the VK-8, players will also appreciate having high-quality instrument sounds including electric/acoustic pianos, strings, bass and choireven jazz scat voices and synths. Theres also a futuristic D-Beam controller, which lets you create effects from tonewheel motor stops to the shock sound of spring reverb using an infrared beam of light.
With two MIDI inputs, you can connect an external MIDI keyboard or an optional PK-7 pedalboard, which allows you to kick bass while playing chords and leads. And when paired up with the KC-1000 Stereo Mixing Keyboard Amplifier, youll get powerful, rich outputthanks to a 310-watt, 7-speaker system with unique RSS ambient effects, split-frequency compression and ultra-realistic tone cabinet reverberation.GRAB IT WHILE IT LASTS!
