Kurzweil PC3K8The sounds are fabulous. The flexibility and control options are almost limitless. Keyboard action is great. Build quality is excellent, solid.
You will not be disappointed with this keyboard. 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.

It is about the sounds, the SOUNDS.A 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, 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.

PC3K8Amazing sounds! Sometimes I feel they are better than the original instrument. Please use a good quality monitor to appreciate them.
And I never thought of using such a complected keyboard! But 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.
