Kurzweil Music Systems announced the release of the PC3K keyboard, expanding the PC3 line to include new features along with backwards compatibility with the K Series product line.

The PC3K features 128 MB of non-volatile user sample memory. Utilizing sample flash technology, the PC3K allows user samples to remain intact after a power-cycle, with zero load time upon powering back on, Kurzweil says. The PC3K can load .WAV files, but more importantly, it can load legacy Kurzweil .K files from the K2000, K2500 and K2600 keyboards.

Along with K Series samples, the PC3K will support the importing of most K Series keymaps, programs and setups, providing ntegration for existing K series customers and a collection of sounds for new Kurzweil users to explore, according to the company.

In addition to the ability to load samples, the PC3K offers basic sample editing and full keymap editing. The features and presets from the PC3 are present as well: anti-aliasing VA oscillators, improved KB3 Mode, Classic Keys, Orchestral and String Sections sound sets, the Kurzweil Grand Piano, Cascade Mode, 16 independent Riffs and arpeggiators, Song Mode and QA mode, MIDI control, etc.

Another improvement added to the PC3K is the inclusion of a USB host port to support the use of thumb-drives for data loading and storage as well as OS updates.
