Forte SE


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.

2GB of Sounds

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. Every sound within the Forte SE is perfectly matched to its 88-note fully-weighted Italian hammer-action keyboard with aftertouch.

Deep Editing

The Forte SE grants full access to Kurzweil's legendary Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology directly from the front panel. With 32-layers per program, each offering its own signal path and a host of modular DSP tools, the Forte SE offers a wealth of sound creation and modification that is truly immense. Award-winning Reverbs, Delays, Choruses, Flangers, Phasers, Distortions, Rotary Amplifiers, Compressors and more are available and all fully editable from the user-interface. Dial it in with the Master EQ section featuring Bass, Treble, a sweepable Midrange and on/off switch. Using your Mac/PC or iPad, get deeper into editing your Forte SE's Programs, Multis and Effects.

(1 sustain/switch pedal is included).
