One major improvement is the new Intuitive Info feature, which enables the PC3 to provide visual feedback in the display whenever a controller (slider, button, wheel, etc.) is used, letting the player know which parameter is being affected and by how much in real-time. This interactive user interface has been designed to make you feel like you‘re using a musical instrument, not just a piece of hardware.
The PC3‘s synthesis engine has undergone a few notable enhancements. Several new V.A.S.T. DSP oscillators have been added along with the ability to edit both keymaps and samples in ROM, opening up even more sonic possibilities than ever before.
“No one else in the industry supports their customers like this”, says Mike Papa, National Sales Manager for American Music and Sound. "Over two years after the initial release, the PC3 continues to evolve, improve and grow, letting our customers know that we are committed to non-obsolescence by design."
New presets include acoustic pianos, synths, pads, FM electric pianos, over 100 new drum kits and a comprehensive collection of pipe organ stop settings. Both our KB3 tone-wheel organ simulator and rotary effects have been improved and have been receiving strong positive feedback from our beta testers.
As we move forward with future projects, Kurzweil customers can be safely assured that we will continue to support them and that we‘re all in this together, for the long haul.
