88 Key Workstation Keyboard.


The new Kurzweil PC3A8 takes the venerable PC3 and adds the KORE 64 sound expansion board and the Artis German D Grand Piano as standard. Featuring K2xxx Series compatibility, the VA-1 Virtual Analogue Synthesiser and KB3 Tonewheel Emulation, the Kurzweil PC3A is a true powerhouse.

The brand new Artis German 9’ Grand Piano has amazing tone, realism, and expression and is perfectly matched with a weighted Fatar TP40L action keyed. The KORE 64™ ROM adds over 300 new programs, including stunning new Synths, Electric Guitars, Horns, Drums and Percussion.

The PC3 introduced the world to a new generation of ground-breaking Kurzweil technology, having a synthesis architecture that remains unparalleled in depth and flexibility, combined with a staggering amount of effects processing power. The PC3 sound set, which encompasses everything from the traditional to the cutting edge, has been acknowledged as second to none.

The PC3A8, already loaded up with the many impressive features and sounds of the PC3, allows users to tap into the massive wealth of samples and programs developed for our legendary K Series over the past two decades. Capable of loading .KRZ/25/26 sample files, WAVE and AIFF files, as well as most of the K Series programs and setups, the PC3A8 presents a whole new world of choices to players, and once again underscores our commitment to the concept of non-obsolescence by design. You can choose to delve into the extensive libraries of existing K Series samples or decide to fill the PC3A8's flash memory with your own signature samples. In either case, you'll have the most powerful version of Kurzweil's V.A.S.T technology ever developed at your fingertips to help sculpt your sounds and attain a level of detail and expressiveness truly worthy of your music. Sample files can be loaded via USB from a thumb-drive or directly from a computer.
