88-hit heavy (Fatar TP40L), Velocity and aftertouch, 128-voice polyphony, multi-effects, arpigiateurs. The first thing that made me more about this workstation is the hit, it's perfect.

UTILIZATION

It was not until I put splint seriously because the beast is not easy to master. It will take a lot of work to go around. By acquiring PC3K, my goal was to already have a high-end keyboard to renew my slightly older hardware, to have a machine all in one, you can create my own sounds like I could do with my past old, but shiny, DX7IIFD. This is done with this kurzweil !!! Well the screen is a bit small, but the interface is very well studied, and finally relatively easy to use. The PC editor is provided free and is a great help for editing Programs or Setup.
The manual is in English, grrrr, but it is available in French on the net. I just had to edit it on my printer, nearly 450 pages whaaaaaaaa !!!

SOUNDS

Basically, I sold my DX7, because the sounds were not realistic enough, so I purchased a Korg krome. With krome, this time the sounds were much more realistic, but unfortunately most pure synth sounds !!! Ouch !!! At this point, I bitterly regretted selling DX7. It was then that I acquired the Kurzweil PC3K8 and there, miracle, realistic sounds and pure synth sounds, I finally found the ultimate machine.
The keyboard sounds great in all styles of music (film music, new wave, pop, etc ...) it is pretty amazing.

OVERALL OPINION

Global view, simply magical, awesome. A perfect hit (this was my biggest concern), various of high quality sounds, a reactivated the machine flawlessly. Everything is perfect, except perhaps the size of the display, but it is quickly passed on that flaw.
