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 PC3K6 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 PC3K6, 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 PC3K6 is simply incredible, and 61 PC3X-style synth-action 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 PC3K6 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 PC3K6. Not only does this new sample flash memory allow the PC3K6 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 PC3K6!

Kurzweil PC3K6 Synthesizer Workstation

I am VERY impressed with this unit. Very rich sounds and a nice layout.
Music background: 61 years playing piano, organ,keyboards, guitar.


After owning the original Kurzweil K2000, then a K2500XS - only to sell the K2500XS to go on a ridiculous journey of buying and selling MIDI equipment in search of the "perfect setup" that included (not all at one time) AKAI MPC1000, MPC500, Korg Microstation, Micro-X, Microsampler, Plugiator, Novation A-Station, Korg MS2000, Novation KS4, K-Station, even a Redsound Darkstar - I finally bit the bullet, sold all my remaining MIDI gear, and bought this glorious instrument - and that's exactly what it is - The PC3K6 is fantastic in every way - Finest sounds I've ever heard - familiar system, and a fantastic vendor in Sweetwater (thanks Ryan Wiltermood) - so glad I took the plunge and bought it - and the Kore 64 and Ribbon Controller are so key -It's all about the sound, and this thing shines in every way - stunning pianos, electric pianos, SYNTHS, orchestral sounds, you name it - they're all killer diller - Glad to be back with Kurzweil - world class instrument in every way - glad to buy from Sweetwater, world class vendor in every way
Music background: obsessive hobbyist
