What programs/multis/setups from other Kurzweil instruments can I load in my PC4 SE?
The PC4 SE can load content from the following Kurzweil instruments and file types:
Loading Compatible Object File Types
Aside from loading objects from its own .P4S files, the PC4 SE can load sounds and objects from other instruments.
In some cases object parameters may need to be edited by the user after loading. See each object file section below for details when loading file types other than .P4S.
Objects from most of the recent Kurzweil models should sound and function exactly the same as on the original instruments (except in cases where unavailable physical controllers change the sound or function). Objects from older legacy Kurzweil instruments can often sound and function very closely or exactly the same as on the original instruments.
Loading K2700 (.K27) and Forte (.FOR) Object Files
When loading K2700 and Forte objects, some Programs and Keymaps may not be compatible if they use user samples, or if they use factory samples that are not available on the PC4 SE.
Loading Legacy Program/Keymap/Sample Object Files
When loading objects from .P3K, .K26, .K25, or .KRZ files, some objects may not be compatible if they use user samples.
Loading Legacy K2 Series Object Files (K26, .K25, .KRZ)
When loading objects from K26, .K25, or .KRZ files, objects are converted to PC4 SE object types. Some object parameters cannot be converted, and some objects may not be compatible if they use user samples.
All K2 series Keymap objects can be loaded, some parameters will be converted to PC4 SE specific parameters.
Most K2 series Program objects can be loaded. FX cannot be converted and must be edited after loading.
A small number of DSP algorithms and functions (some filters, oscillators, etc.) cannot be loaded.
KB3 programs created with a K2500 or K2600 cannot be loaded, however the PC4 SE contains a variety of KB3 programs which can easily be modified and edited.
Triple Mode programs created with the K2600 cannot be loaded.
All K series Setup objects can be loaded and converted to Multis. FX cannot be converted and must be edited after loading.
Loading FM Preset Files (.SYX)
The PC4 SE can load .SYX files containing FM presets from classic 6 operator FM synthesizers. Loaded FM presets can be edited in Program Mode to adjust FX chain parameters and other program settings.
Loading MIDI Song Files (.MID)
MIDI song files (.MID) can be loaded, they appear as Songs in Song Mode. Songs that use the General MIDI sound set are not supported and must be edited after loading to select appropriate instrument programs for each track. For details on selecting programs for each track, see Program on page 7-6 of the Musician’s Guide.
