(this offer is available in the USA ONLY)

Designed for anyone in search of the best sound quality and great sounding effects, the PC2R rack brings the much sought after PC2 Series sound and other capabilities to a compact 1U rack module design.

Outstanding New Sounds

This is a songwriter's dream palette! It provides impeccable high quality new sounds including a brand new super dynamic stereo grand piano, stereo strings, Take 6 vocals, brass section, classic electric pianos (FM, Wurlitzer and Classic Tine EPs ), organs, harpsichord, Clavinet, vibes, marimba, electric and acoustic basses (with and without layered ride cymbal), guitars, drums, percussion and synth sounds. It also features Kurzweil's KB-3 modeled tone wheel organ mode, giving you ultra-realistic tone wheel organ programs with programmable drawbar, vibrato/chorus, percussion settings, and more. Orchestral Sounds include String Sections, Solo Strings, Woodwinds, Orchestral Brass, Jazz Brass, Orchestral Ensembles, Choir, Organ, Harp, Nylon String Guitar, Orchestral Percussion, and Ethnic Percussion.

The PC2R comes with 400 fantastic sounding preset programs (256 regular programs, 128 Orchestral ROM programs, and 16 KB3 programs). All programs can be edited, allowing for changes to timbre, envelopes, and LFOs. They can then be stored to any of the 256 user locations (128 for regular programs and 128 for KB3 programs). And with 64 voices of polyphony, expandable to 128 voices, you'll never run out of polyphony for playing all of the marvelous sounds.

The Orchestral ROM block comes with 2 banks of 128 programs. Our own unique programs are installed in the Flash ROM. A General MIDI bank is also available, which can be loaded into the User bank. Or, if desired, you can install the GM bank of sounds as presets into the Flash ROM, and then load our unique bank of sounds into the User bank.

Up to 4 programs can be layered/split to create full, rich, and expressive sounds and combinations called setups. The PC2R ships w ith 32 great sounding setups with room for 128 user created setups as well. It's easy and quick to make setups with layered and split sounds which are impossible to create on other rack modules.

Beyond the wealth of built-in factory progams, the PC2R has room for an additional expansion ROM block, the Classic Keys ROM, which add 128 fantastic new preset programs and 32 new preset Setups into ROM memory.

Fantastic Effects

The PC2R includes dual effects processors which feature preset effects of the same quality as found in our highly regarded KDFX for the K2500/K2600 series instruments. A multiple bus architecture allows separate send levels per MIDI channel for an effect level, and a reverb level. Effects include reverb, chorus, delays, distortion, rotary, phasor, flanging, dynamics processing, and much more.

Control At Your Fingertips

PC2R MIDI Setups offer 4 independent zones, transmitting on up to 4 different MIDI channels, providing a great deal of control over a live performance rig. Four programmable front panel rotary knobs are available for real-time control and customization. Each zone can be set to play the PC2R's own sounds, or an external MIDI device, or both. Of course, you can set the note range for each zone to create splits and layers, as well as customizing velocity response per zone. All controllers can be scaled both positively and negatively and can have offset values as well as entry and exit values to set their 'state' upon program or setup selection.

High Quality Audio Output

The PC2R gives you pristine quality audio, with both balanced analog (24-bit DACs) and digital audio outputs. Digital audio is sent at a rate of 48kHz. It can be switched between Pro (AES/EBU) and Consumer (S/PDIF) formats and can be switched between 16, 18, 20, and 24 bit resolution.
