Kurzweil Artis Stage Piano with New Grand Piano Sample

Waltham MA - Kurzweil is proud to announce the release of the Artis Stage Piano , which features an impressive new grand piano along with a wide selection of sounds from the acclaimed PC3 sound set. The Artis is a capable all-in-one gig machine, with astonishing sound quality, 128-voice polyphony, 88-note hammer weighted action and a friendly user interface.

The centerpiece of the Artis Stage piano is an entirely new German 9' grand piano sound offering a level of sound quality and playability that raises the bar for stage pianos in this price range. The Artis also includes KB3 ToneReal™ organs, a powerful effects engine for spot-on vintage keys emulations and many new sounds from the KORE 64 ROM expansion for PC3 (synths, horns, guitars, drums and percussion).

"The Artis hits the stage piano trifecta - sound quality, features and price point", said Bryan Pistone, Kurzweil National Sales Manager for American Music and Sound. "Kurzweil has managed to incorporate everything that today's player needs in one slick package. We expect to sell a lot of these!"

With 9 sliders and a dedicated front panel 3-band EQ section (with sweepable mid), the Artis user interface is both inviting and intuitive. For lightning-fast, gig-ready sound selection, Quick Split/Layer and Favorites buttons provide one-touch access to the sounds players use most frequently.

The Artis is now shipping.

Kurzweil Music Systems was founded in 1982 by Ray Kurzweil, with inspiration from Stevie Wonder after having collaborated together on a reading machine for the blind. In 1983 the Kurzweil K250 was considered the first successful attempt to realistically emulate the sound of a grand piano. Since then, Kurzweil has been renowned for being a major innovator in the music tech industry and today continues to redefine keyboard instruments.
