Kurzweil 76 Key Stage Piano with 300 Sounds and 128-note Polyphony

The Forte 7 is the 76 note version of the Forte stage piano. As with the Forte, the Forte 7 enables instant access to 16 GB of memory and features instruments recorded in ultra-high definition. It also features intuitive real-time controls including 9 Sliders with LED ladders, and color LCD display. All this combined with an extremely playable hammer-action keybed with velocity and aftertouch, make for a professional and versatile instrument.

Sound Matters
Forte offers hand-selected German and Japanese concert grand pianos, as well as Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Clav and Harpsichords along with a wide selection of sounds from the acclaimed PC3 and KORE 64 expansion, and KB3 ToneReal Organs modeled after classic Hammond, Vox and Farfisa organs, all recorded at 96Khz, and delivered with unprecedented expressiveness and an obsessive attention to detail. Kurzweil's patented Flash-Play technology provides the Forte with a staggering amount of horse-power, allowing zero-loading time of its 16 GB sample content, and heaping mounds of powerful DSP and ultrafast performance. Forte's powerful FX engine lets you add Award-winning Reverbs, Delays, Choruses, Flangers, Phasers, Distortions, Rotary Amplifiers, Compressors and more.

Take Control
Every sound within the Forte is perfectly matched to its 76-note fully-weighted Italian hammer-action keyboard with aftertouch. Forte's front panel master compressor and 3-band EQ allows you to quickly dial in your sound with the Master Compressor & EQ section featuring Bass, Treble and sweepable Midrange, right at your fingertips. Forte can be customized to your every need with its 23 programmable physical controllers, including 9 Sliders (with brilliant LED ladders), 6 Switches, 2 Wheels, 3 Switch Pedal Inputs, 2 Continuous Control Pedal Inputs and Aftertouch. (1 sustain/switch pedal is included). Dedicated -/+ Transpose, Tap Tempo and sound Variation controls are conveniently located right above the Pitch/Modulation wheels, for easy access.

Easy Interaction
