88 note fully-weighted Professional Keyboard.
Following the standard of sonic excellence established by the Forte®, the Forte® SE brings your performance to new heights with its astonishing sound quality, dependability and user-friendly operation.
The Forte SE features the new High Definition Japanese Grand (optimised especially for the SE) and German D Grand, featuring "KSR" - Kurzweil String Resonance. Also included are a wide selection of tailored sounds from the acclaimed Forte (EP, Clav, Celeste, Crotales, Harpsichord), as well as PC3 Series and KORE 64 expansions - all handcrafted to deliver unprecedented expressiveness with an obsessive attention to detail. Flash-Play powers the Forte SE with 2 GB of on-board sample content with zero-loading time, loads of powerful DSP and ultrafast performance.
