From Our Research Team:
Decades of Sample Technology in One Keyboard!The Kurzweil PC3 series keyboards introduced some major developments in synthesizer technology, with their anti-aliasing VA oscillators, improved KB3 mode, amazing sound sets, 16 independent riffs and arpeggiators, powerful song and QA modes, sampling, unparalleled MIDI control, and more. If you're a long-time Kurzweil fan, however, you may have missed those wonderful sample libraries you've built up over the years. The PC3K8 changes everything! This revolutionary new keyboard combines all of the hard-hitting PC3 features, plus K 2/25/26 series .K file sample library compatibility, which opens the door to some of the greatest sound sets ever created.
With the PC3K8, you can combine more than a decade and a half of K2000 and K2500 legacy sample libraries with the PC3's super-powerful Dynamic V.A.S.T. synthesis engine, for exploring the uncharted possibilities of sound development. The potential power of the PC3K8 is simply incredible, and 88 PC3X-style fully weighted keys make it a blast to play. It even offers more excellent new features, including a USB host port that lets you plug in standard USB thumb drives so that you can quickly store and retrieve data, as well as load OS updates.
One further development that the PC3K8 offers you is 128MB of nonvolatile user-sample memory. Made possible by a breakthrough in sample flash technology, this nonvolatile user memory adds a new level of stability to the PC3K8. Not only does this new sample flash memory allow the PC3K8 to retain user samples after a power cycle, but it also powers back on with zero sample load time. Whether you're a Broadway performer, a working musician, a composer, or even a hobbyist, if you're looking for the very best performance sounds from a super-stable keyboard, you'll find it with the Kurzweil PC3K8!

You will not be disappointed with this keyboard. ... read more [+]It will be the last board you will ever need, (unless you need sampling capability).
My favourite sounds are the pianos, EP's, organs and pads. close [-]
It is about the sounds, the SOUNDS.
by Frank from Chelmsford, MAA professional Kurzweil user since the K1000 days. I have played K series products since the 1990s, along with several other household brands. The K series always wins for 'USABLE sounds'. The pianos,... read more [+] basses, etc sound fantastic, but more importantly FIT in the mix. Other brands can sound GREAT when you audition the presets, but sound harsh and un-natural in a mix. The PC3K8 is exactly what I need in my work. Best in class instruments (pianos, Rhodes, Hammonds, orchestral, percussion). One negative remark that has been my experience with K series instruments is that they really could use some better brass sections. The solo instruments are great and usable, however. Great instrument, almost unlimited potential. close [-]

And I never thought of using such a complected keyboard! But... read more [+] that's the hidden beauty of this beast. Potential is endless.
I don't think I would need any other as long as this keeps playing. I wish it had some more common Asian/Indian/Oriental instruments -
like Tabla, bamboo flute etc. Though I can see that it's possible to do everything that I wish to do; but getting there knowing how
to do it, will take time. The manual is really a manual and not an easy guide! So you need to ready it thoroughly - unless you get
lucky finding a related video footage in the tube. I wasn't so lucky, so after a got lot effort, I could Finlay create my own Tabla
instrument using my own samples! .5 deducted only due to lack of examples in the manual. close [-]
