“I have found in Kurzweil everything I needed. A wide variety of high quality sounds which include lovely pianos, great strings, aggressive and warm Hammonds, fat and fantastic pads, fascinating Rhodes, incredible drums, bass, guitars and a huge collection of ethnical sounds which I personally use a lot. The quality of the keyboard is excellent, it invites you to play for hours on end. Its open architecture is wonderful, with an awesome list of controllers that make anything possible. I use both of my PC3 in studio and live and they are perfectly prepared for each situation. I have realized there are infinite possibilities!”
