The 76-Note Fully Weighted Performance Powerhouse

Kurzweil introduced the first Performance Controller keyboard, the PC88, back in 1994, receiving both critical and public acclaim. Now continuing this tradition of excellence, Kurzweil introduces our first 76-note fully weighted action Performance Controller, the PC1SE Special Edition. With breathtaking sounds, superior effects and impressive controller capabilities the PC1SE delivers the power of Kurzweil's popular PC1X in an elegant brushed aluminum 76 note enclosure.

It's the Sound....

The end result is the famous Kurzweil sound, which has made the entire PC series a resounding success. The many samples are impressive; they have been tuned, looped, noise-reduced, and processed with a level of expertise and precision found nowhere else in the industry. These include the Triple-Strike Piano, countless drum and percussion kits, Take 6 vocals, and built-in Orchestral ROM expansion. For those looking for even more sound choices, Kurzweil's Classic Keys sound ROM expansion also comes built-in, adding a world class set of stunningly realistic "vintage" sounds.

It's the Effects...

The final ingredient to the PC1SE's sound is its effects processor, using the same technology found in our award winning KSP8 processor and K26 Series keyboards. Stated simply, the effects section in the PC series sounds better than most stand-alone effects processors. Reverbs decay noiselessly into complete silence. The many chorus, phaser and flanger presets are full and rich. Transparent compressors, authentic rotary speaker emulations, and realistic distortion presets are ideal for "vintage" sounds. And of course there are the effects algorithms unique to Kurzweil, like shapers and Laserverb.

It's the Control...

The PC1SE offers comprehensive MIDI control, with multiple overlapping zones, inputs for dual switch and CC pedals, and a bank of assignable switches and knobs. Intelligent MIDI implementation, a full featured arpeggiator, and optional Super Ribbon controller make the PC1SE an ideal controller whether you're on stage, in the studio or on your desktop.
