Kurzweil 88 Key Stage Piano with 2 GB of Sounds, Italian Hammer-Action Keyboard, and 23 Programmable Controllers

Forte SE is a Special Edition version of the Forte stage piano, providing a fully-weighted Italian hammer-action keyboard with aftertouch, in a sleek and compact package. Forte's large, easy to use controllers are located in a highly ergonomic position, for efficient, expressive performance. The placement of the pitch/modulation wheels, variation, tap tempo and transpose switches appear on the front panel, to make the footprint as small as possible for an 88 note keyboard. FlashPlay and eight arpeggiators with dedicated on/off buttons, all of which can be used together in Multi-mode.

Forte SE offers instant access to 2 GB of memory, featuring hand-selected German and vintage Japanese concert pianos, enhanced with Kurzweil String Resonance technology. Other high-quality sounds include Rhodes ('73 and '77), Wurlitzer (200A), Clavinet (two pickups) and a French Harpsichord (five dispositions). Orchestral percussion instruments such as the Celeste, Bells, Glockenspiel, Chimes and Crotales (hit and bowed) provide a rich fluidity of sound. In addition, the Forte series includes previous samples from the Artis, PC3 series and KORE64. All of these great programs can be tailored to your playing style by intuitive real-time controls (including 9 Sliders with LED ladders), and color LCD.
