Fantastic stage piano ..!

18.02.2016
The Forte is like having your favorite software pianos with you on stage - two separate grand pianos, and loads of Rhodes and Wurlitzer programs ... Along with the best of the Kurzweil PC3 and the Kore 64 expansion ..! This is also a powerhouse synth with upcoming full VAST.

De prøver er lastet på Flash ROM (muligvis RAM), og så snart den har startet (ca. 30 sekunder), det er alt tilgængeligt.

The Fatar keyboard connects very well with the sounds, and the Kurzweil programmers have coaxed every possible nuance from the samples. The Forte 8 is a flagship grand piano, but for those of us who do not need all 88 keys or can not fit 88 in the car, the Forte 7 is the solution. It will actually fit in the bigger Gator and SKB 61-key cases. My only gripe with the Forte 7 is the keyboard layout, I really want my pianos to have an AC range, a grand piano as well as a Wurlitzer and a Rhodes 88 all have the low A. But considering that it's as big as a Kronos 61 I'll forgive them. If you're looking for a stage piano in 2016, look no further. That's all.

Forte 7 - is it even worse?

18.08.2016
In the expectation of a compact, not too heavy stagepianos with additional good organ and some synthesizer / instrument sounds (for a rock formation) I was gladly expecting the package from Thomann.

But already after the opening of the - undamaged - original packaging, I suspected evil: The display of the Forte 7 had apparently solved because of insufficient gluing and now glued over the buttons of the keyboard ... I grabbed the shortcut nevertheless, read the instructions again , Whether in the meantime perhaps after the transport the display would have to be installed - but of course that was not the case. Well, because it is not a touch screen, I would have glued the display after cleaning probably still itself and with this damage snarling stomach can live.

But that was not all! When testing the new sampled 9ft pianos (and other sounds), it turned out that the middle C-key always sounded in full volume / dynamics no matter what velocity you chose. Pain in the meantime, I switched the k? Kiste several times in and out and also made a global hardreset, but it did not change.

I was not so impressed with the sounds I tested, as some testers on the Internet have a lot of praise, yes, the piano and some EPianos are good, but I can not compete with my Korg Kronos in their latest soft / sound, the B3 organ (The remaining rather probably not), but there is my favorable Hammond SK1 hundred times of the sound and the effects / processing possibilities rather ... And over the few instruments / syntisizer sounds - and the 16GB of memory - I prefer to be polite ( See Kronos). So the company Kurzweil makes probably no quality control more before the shipping of their products, is me in my now more than 45 years of keyboard experience so never happened. Also, when reading in various KurzweilForte forums, software and compatibility problems are discussed, I will spare me in the future ...
