Kurzweil PC3 K6

Performance Controller Keyboard

For many years, the name Kurzweil stands for assertive sounds and professional controller and editing functions. The PC3K convinces with the complete sound inventory of the K-2600 series in combination with modern opportunities such as a USB connection to the computer, software editor, integration of USB storage devices and non-volatile flash memory with which your own samples remain applicable without loading time after turning off the device. This sample option the PC3K is compatible with all the available sounds for Kurzweil synthesizers since the publication of the K-2000 models.

Among the synthesizer workstations the PC3K is one of the few instruments that also provides alternatives to a sample-based sound generation - for example a drawbar organ based on physical modeling and the virtual-analogue synthesizer VA-1, which compared to earlier versions has been further developed significantly especially in the filter section.

Great sounds, very good workmanship

Jetband, 25.07.2013
As a longtime K2000 fan, I was naturally curious about the new features and the extended range of sounds. I've found a lot of new sounds and first-class setups. The solid processing with the wooden cheeks represents a significant upgrade against the K2000. The display also provides a very good contrast.
Piano sounds and many synth sounds have improved significantly. Only the Hammond drawbacks do not stand comparison with the Nord Elektro 3.
Even my favorite program from the K2000 (No. 99) is no longer in the same quality. Unfortunately, the abundance of programs offered makes it quite difficult to quickly find a suitable sound. Perhaps times times times someone writes a tool (Sound Browseer) for the PC, where one gets keyword-quickly a limited choice of programs called.
Luckily there is the tried and tested possibility of Quick Access. Since the PC3 has against the Nord Elektro 3 the nose clearly front. Particularly noteworthy is the flexible layering and splitting of the manual.
As a manual I have only received the Musicians Guide, which describes the most complicated details of the machine, but for the information for the fast-starters leave some gaps.
Here, the site of Kurzweil with their video instructions is recommended. There clean - if also in English - is explained, what matters.
A little correction to the test in the magazine KEYBOARDS:
For the PC3K6 (ie for 61 keys) is spoken of a keyboard with hammer mechanics. So do not let it get irritated.
The small 61-key version comes with lightweight buttons.
Overall a successful successor of K2000. You can get over the kinks described above already after a short training.

Top Ger t, but unfortunately there is something to complain about ....

Gansmann, 23.05.2018
On the first impression I was thrilled, great look, the keyboard is grippy and easy to play. The sounds in very good quality and the way you had imagined. Unfortunately, there is a certain power hum, which is not the network but the device. All the other devices in my set do not have that. When it comes to quiet sounds in the studio, that can be annoying. The readability of the display is bad in a straight line, as it helps synonymous no turning s.den settings. But who has the device diagonally on his stand should have no problem with it. The sliders are also a bit too easy and cheap for me. Kurzweil could have done something better for the money.
