Comments about Kurzweil Artis 88-Key Stage Piano:
My CSR, Jordan, assisted me with some issues with the purchase, but stayed with me all the way through the purchase, so Kudos to MF.
The new Grand Piano is very usuable, along with the Kore 64 and PC3 sounds for my gig. I actually am replacing a MOXF8 and Nord Stage 2 with this one new board, and I feel the KB3 organs stand up close to the Nords Organs, along with its EPs.
I play typical bread and butter sounds and am prograqmming my Artis now with the splits and layers I use with my two boards.SO far I am finding the objects I need to accomplish this, pretty realistic Tenor Sax and Fiddles for one. I like the drawbar mode of the KB3, and there are tons of rotary speaker FX chains to go through to find the best.
The free soundtower editer alloews you to Actually get under the hood to the V.A.S.T programming(but its not for the faint of heart)
The only down side its darn heavy, along with the rollar bag case over 50 lbs.
