Following the standard of sonic excellence established by the Forte, the Forte SE brings your performance to new heights with astonishing sound quality, everyday dependability and user-friendly operation.

2 Gigabytes of Sounds
Hear the new High Definition Japanese Grand (optimized especially for the SE) and German D Grand, featuring "KSR" - Kurzweil String Resonance. Also included are a wide selection of tailored sounds from the acclaimed Forte (EP, Clav, Celeste, Crotales, Harpsichord), as well as PC3 Series and KORE 64 expansions - all handcrafted to deliver unprecedented expressiveness with an obsessive attention to detail. It features 2 GB of on-board sample content with zero-loading time, loads of powerful DSP and ultrafast performance.

V.A.S.T. Editing
The Forte SE grants full access to Kurzweil's legendary Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology directly from the front panel. With 32-layers per program, each offering its own signal path and a host of modular DSP tools, the Forte SE offers a wealth of sound creation and modification that is truly immense.

Powerful FX Engine
Award-winning Reverbs, Delays, Choruses, Flangers, Phasers, Distortions, Rotary Amplifiers, Compressors and more - all fully editable from the user-interface.

8 Arpeggiators!

88-note Italian Hammer-Action Keyboard
Every sound within the Forte SE is perfectly matched to its 88-note fully-weighted Italian hammer-action keyboard with aftertouch.
