what? I thought kurzwell was just a controller, like a really well-weighted piano bed that didn't actually play sound...I guess I was wrong about that totally....I didn't know it was an actual piano....
It's a PC3X (88-weighted key workstation/ROMpler/synth). And, no, it's not the 80s thing that L4C is thinking of (K-series), but it is based on that generation and, yeah, its orchestra samples do sound a bit dated. If you've turned on a radio or seen a movie in the past 8 years or so, then you've definitely heard this. Like most Kurzweils, it's highly regarded for its piano sounds, but it's not just a ROMpler - it has V.A.S.T. synthesis built into it, which is widely regarded as one of the deepest virtual synth engines available in hardware (and a complete PITA to work with!).
