It was used on Shine on you crazy diamond/Coming Back to Life/High Hopes/Keep Talking/Another Brick In The Wall /Comfortably Numb /Us and Them and many more, even maybe used on the album Division Bell and more.
LOL ! What a crook ... ( K2000 was launched in 1991 ). What's next ? John Lennon's Arturia Minibrute for 860.000 euros ?

This reminds me of the Pawn Stars episode where a guy comes into the shop with a Gibson that somebody allegedly played for Al Capone. The guy who runs the shop replies, "so? would you care if I told you I played it for Obama last night?" The guy got the point pretty quickly.
As someone else mentioned, PF had MANY K2000s with them on the Pulse tour. IIRC, they had three complete touring companies - A, B, and C. While they were playing with one company, the other two were in-transit, setting up, or breaking down their respective rigs. Cost them a fortune (I believe they actually lost money on that tour), but what a spectacle it was.
Still I wouldn't pay an extra dime for one o 'dem boards _unless_ it had the entire patch set they used during the show.
And??? Maybe some people think this K2000 helps them to write better songs - songs from Pink Floyd - ?
It's a usual K2000 - not more - no modification which would make it to be extraordinary. It's not a guitar which is individual handmade.
Every K2000 is the same - crazy people. For this money I would invite Pink Floyd to me at home - I would have more fun.
Well, no. Actually, I had a good think about this, and, if I recall correctly, Rick actually sampled all his other boards onto the on-board sampler before he removed them from his touring rig. So that would mean that yes, the onboard rom on this K2000 would be unique and special to this unit. I don't think it's worth a 1000% increase in price, but certainly I could see a unit like this sell for $20-30k.
im the owner of this kurzweil k2000 pink floyd
its great synth with great sounds you dont have
Sure, but with that amount of cash you can buy all the original instruments and sample them into the a Kurzweil K2000, and you'd still have plenty of cash...
It's a special unit and Rick Wright sounds are surely valuable, but no way that worths that much, especially cause it wasn't even used in their classic albums and it's a common synth that's quite cheap nowadays (you can get one used for around 0.1% of what you're asking).
