  • Kurzweil found another way to package PC3!!!

    http://www.hs-online.com/hu/Szinpadi...SP58-5010.html



    I hope it didn't eat too much resources from them.
    I am wanting, I am thinking
    To arise and go forth singing,
    Sing my songs and say my sayings,
    Hymns ancestral harmonizing,
    Lore of kindred lyricking.
    In my mouth the words are melting;
    Utterances overflowing
    To my tongue are hurrying,
    Even against my teeth they burst.

    Looks like a really nice enhancement to the SP4. Full PC3LE soundset, aftertouch, sliders with drawbar functionality. With the right action, I think the unweighted version of this in a 25 pound sp4-7 style enclosure could be particularly appealing.

      The link says that it contains LE's effect chains, 4 zones... but the highlight is that the built-in presets are not fixed; this I conclude by the fact that it says that it accepts most PC3 and PC3LE sounds, most probably through included USB port (my conclusion).

        I wonder what it weighs? Weight is the only thing keeping me from Kurz stuff.

            That comparison is for the SP4, not the SP5...

              It's real. I'm sitting in front of one.



              Info will be posted on our website shortly.



              Graded hammer action, PC3LE sounds (around 1000), more info soon!



              Should be shipping very shortly - long before NAMM.

                It in fact did not eat up much in the way of R&D resources. We just wanted something to fill a gap between price-points and features in this range.

                  Dave - will this new SP5-8 have the same extra-springy action as the PC3LE does?



                  I love the sounds of the PC3/PC3LE machines but just can't get behind the extreme spring back on the keys. PC3K8 action is actually VERY nice but overall the 'board is just a bit heavy - I recently scaled down from a Yam. S90ES, wound up w/a Yam. MoX8, for the extreme lightness and good overall variety of sounds - - I took long hard looks/listens to the Kurz. PC3Kx & PC3LE series machines before the purchase, though.

                    The "springy" action is on all of our 76 note boards and also on the PC3LE6.

                    The PC3K8 action (Fatar TP40L) is used in PC3K8, PC3x and PC3LE8. (not graded)



                    The SP5 action is a new hammer weighted graded action



                    We'll have a web page up for it soon.

                      Always like to see the new Kurz stuff. I love my PC361 but have been thinking of looking into something with 88 keys and a good piano action to compliment it. This is intriguing.

                          I'm still waiting to hear confirmation from HQ, but they should be in transit at the moment.

                              Do you have dimensions and weight handy?
