This review is a long time coming. I bought this six months ago and let me share my story. I had the cash to afford any workstation on the market. I drilled down to the following three which I determined were industry best based off countless other reviews and awards: Yamaha Motif XF8, Korg New Kronos 88, and the Kurzweil PC3K8. I already owned the Motif XS8 and liked it. However I had my eye on this bad boy since Kurz announced in five years ago. I owned a Kurz digital piano back in the day and loved it. Needless to say like most Kurz products it's a preferred taste situation. You will either instantly love or hate their products for the most part. I obviously love them and for good reason. The PC3K8 beyond the XF8 and New Kronos mentioned has build quality that far exceeds those two in my mind. This thing is built like a battle tank. Meaning if you gig with it you have peace of mind. The build is apparent immediately when you touch this thing. The keys are in my opinion the best feel I've experienced. The funny thing is they are not the most realistic. I would accredit the Motif with having a more "life-like" keyboard. However that doesn't matter to me. This is a digital keyboard after all so the assumption is that the player will want action that is suited for playing multiple styles such as rock where you want more give and response. I'm by no means compelled to redundantly write about the sound or overall capabilities of the PC3K8. There has been so many reviews published it would be entirely moot. As a workstation the on-board sequencer is efficient and unlimited in performance.
In closing I found this to be the workstation for me because it feels right. This is a top quality professional keyboard for true industry pros. It will do whatever you want it to do. I have mine running through an AudioBox 44VSL with Studio One 3 Pro. Everything is in perfect harmony. With Kore 64 I have an outrageous amount of samples and effects to add to any style I choose. Lately I've been big on ambient cinematic scores and this delivers in spades. If you're on the fence please waste no more time and buy this!
