ME-1 Overview

Discontinued Model
Downloads and support materials maintained here as a courtesy to owners.

In the tradition of Kurzweil's highly popular and successful Micro Piano, comes our newest half rack module, the ME-1 Micro Ensemble. This low cost module features a wide variety of piano, keyboard and synth sounds, along with strings, guitars, basses, voices, and drums - a total of 256 programs in all. The samples and synth programming is taken directly from our PC2 Series instruments, including our newest stereo triple strike acoustic piano sample, and our new multi-strike electric pianos (both Rhodes and Wurlitzer). (It should be noted that the KB3 Organs from the PC2 are not found in the Micro Ensemble, but the regular, sample-based organ programs are included.)

The Micro Ensemble has 32 voice polyphony and is 16 channel multi-timbral. A Global effects processor features the same effects found in our SP Stage Piano Series. You can choose from one of 9 different effects, along with the wet dry settings for reverb and chorus, directly from the front panel, or via MIDI (the effects are applied the same for the programs on all MIDI channels). The Micro Ensemble can also be transposed up or down, up to an octave and tuned +/- 99 cents.
