What is the KBI-1?

This new hardware option from Synclavier Digital provides a USB-MIDI connection to a Velocity-Pressure Keyboard or an Original Keyboard. This is a preliminary product specification and the KBI-1 is now available for pre-order. We hope to start shipping production models in early 2024.

The KBI-1 connects to your VK or ORK using the 50-pin Centronics connector on the back. A breakout connector (in theory!) allows your keyboard to also stay connected to your Synclavier tower. When the tower is powered off, your keyboard becomes available to other systems via USB-MIDI.

When connected to a Synclavier Regen, the Timbre Design buttons seamless integrate with the Regen's button surface. The Sequencer functions are not yet available in Synclavier Regen.

  • Compatible with VK

  • Compatible with ORK

  • All buttons and the knob are recognized when connected to a Synclavier³ installation.

  • With other digital audio workstations the Knob will act as a pitch bender. Note-on, Note-off, and Individual-Pressure (VK only) are supported.

Pre-Order Now!

This will a limited production run. If you are at all interested in connecting your VK or ORK to MIDI please take advantage of this pre-production ordering period, as there may never be a second production run!

Now For the Deal of the Century!
