I have been using Kurzweil boards for a long time now and I love the PC3k7, it was just so darn expensive when it first came out. I remember paying over 3 grand for it and really second guessing my self if it was worth it or not. But after using it for about an hour or so I soon realized that I would get more than my monies worth out of this workstation because of sounds and the ability of loading the .KRZ sample files that I have accumulated over the years. Being able to load up sounds from other boards was great because that actually allowed me to sell some of my other Kurzweil keyboards to cover the cost of the PC3k7.


Getting started with the PC3K7 was very easy because it was just like some of the other Kurzweil boards that I have used in the past. Most of the layout and menus are all the same but the sounds are so much better. This board gave me the ability to have up to 32 layers on each program, I was able to get some really great sounding instruments by utilizing that features.


The sounds are very good, and by using the oscillators I was able to get the exact sound that I was looking for every single time without any issues. I would spend hours on hours playing around with the sounds on this keyboard until I got was I was happy with.


Using the PC3K7 has really helped me out sound wise because I was starting to really over use some of the sounds on my other keyboards and needed something fresh to create with. I have so many more sounds now I don’t think I will ever use them all. I am able to create my own sounds and be unique! The keyboard has 76 touch sensitive keys, though it is not the full 88 key version it is still very heavy and I do not think that I will ever want to take it anywhere with me!
