In addition to all of the innovative features that made the PC3 a major success, the PC3K features 128 MB of non-volatile user sample memory. The PC3K can load .WAV files, but more importantly, it can load legacy Kurzweil .K files from the K2000, K2500 and K2600 keyboards. This opens up a whole new world of sonic possibilities; users can now combine the PC3K's unmatched Dynamic V.A.S.T. synthesis engine with the staggering library of K Series samples generated by users and developers alike for over 15 years. Sound On Sound magazine give their verdict on the flagship Kurzweil PC3K8 in the latest issue of the magazine.

"...the latest version of VAST is synthesis on steroids, and I doubt that anyone has ever claimed to have plumbed its depths to the point where there is nothing left to extract from it".

"...a very attractive proposition for both the studio and the stage".

"...there could be times when the PC3K8 will simply be the nicest tool for the job".

The full review can be found in the August issue of Sound On Sound magazine (Vol 28, Issue 10) on sale now. The Kurzweil PC3K8 is also available now at £2599 RRP inc VAT. The Kore64 ROM expansion board is also available at £149 RRP inc VAT.
