Kurzweil's Forte 88 note, fully-weighted hammer-action with velocity and aftertouch sensitive key stage piano offers a combination of features and technologies that makes it one of the most advanced keyboards on the market.

Sound Matters
Forte offers new, hand-selected German and Japanese concert grand pianos, as well as new 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.

Every sound within the Forte is perfectly matched to its 88-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.
