UTILIZATION

Easier would be difficult ... 3 modes Internal Voices (programs), KB-3 (programs organs phonic wheel) and MIDI Setup (MIDI combining ability of 4 zones simultaneous internal / external)
Editing is intuitive and uncomplicated no.

Regarding the manual in French, I am the translator so it's not my place to say whether or not the manual is clear ... (Smile) KURZWEIL

SOUNDS

. I said everything.
More realistic devienjt it difficult. The sounds of pianos under the specifications of the biggest bills Pianos in the world are monumental. Why slam in sub CD Roms Pianos sounds when everything makes sense in ROM in the PC2 ...
Side effects: dual stereo 24 bit processor type KDFX.
For fans of the genre, such as R versions PC2 PC2 and PC2X keyboards, you can use the option ROM for K2600. Indeed, the map ROM1-PC, 16 MB, which includes the option of CONTEMPORARY ORCHESTRAL and K2600 will be available from May 2002. A second ROM will be available in October.

OVERALL OPINION

NOTICE to all those who want to work with most sound library in ROM. PC2 Rack is a monster of realism and dynamics. The drum kits are incredibly efficient, the sounds of pianos (Steinway & Sons (r), Boston (r) Fazzioli (r), ...) are a delicacy and warmth of sound copy.
Take a tour of what happens in this kind of sound module / expanders and come back, we hear about it :-)
Sincerely,
Dr. Frog
