Kurzweil PC3LE8I think Kurz went backward a little with the PC3 series releases. The PC3K has all the bells and whistles, sampling and all the old loadable predecessor Kxxxx series compatability. BUT, the latest, the PC3LE (light edition) simplified the entire thing in one tank of a unit and it has 8 softpads that are touch and pressure sensitive that the PC3 and PC3K does not have. You can actually work an 8pc drumkit with your fingers on these pads, forget about splitting the keyboard in 16 zones and programming drums. Each voice you call up has a complimentary drum kit called up. Each time you change voices, another kit is loaded and they're all touch sensitive. Absolutely awesome. The thing weighs about a thousand pounds with the massive keybed but you can beat the crap out of this thing and it wont fall apart. I am absolutely astounded with the VAST and how real every single instrument sounds. Kurz has the best orchestral sounds worldwide, period. As for brass, they're really close, light years in front of everyone else with brass and woodwinds. In its essence, this piece is a post production motion picture tool that has the ability to unload massive sounds filling a soundtrack for a movie all on its own and you don't have to hire a bunch of troubled musicians that can't make it to session on time.
