“Kurzweil keyboards have been an essential part of my touring and studio rig for over 20 years. All the sounds are there. No need to adjust anything. Just plug and play. Programming and editing are intuitive, so if you want to edit the sounds, go ahead. Playing a Kurzweil is effortless and dynamic. You definitely get out of it what you put into it. These keyboards give you top-notch sounds, great touch and feel, and ease of control. These are just a few things that keep me coming back to play Kurzweil keyboards. I love knowing they will be there night after night. Thanks Kurzweil!”
