A rack version of the powerful PC2!
Outstanding new sounds:
The PC2R is designed for anyone in search of the best sound quality with great-sounding effects and a compact 1U design. This is a songwriter's dream palette! It provides impeccable high-quality sounds including a super dynamic stereo grand piano, stereo strings, Take 6 vocals, brass section, classic electric pianos (FM, Wurlitzer and Rhodes), organs, harpsichord, Clavinet, vibes, marimba, electric and acoustic basses (with and without layered ride cymbal), guitars, drums, percussion, and synth sounds. It also features Kurzweil's KB-3 modeled tone wheel organ mode, giving you ultrarealistic tone wheel organ programs. Orchestral sounds include string sections, solo strings, woodwinds, orchestral brass, jazz brass, orchestral ensembles, choir, organ, harp, nylon string guitar, orchestral percussion, and ethnic percussion.
Control At Your Fingertips:
The PC2R offers the user clear and concise control over their sounds. The 2x20-character backlit display nicely offset the striking purple color. The 4 front panel knobs can be used as physical controllers and can be programmed on a per-zone basis, allowing you to send any MIDI controller message on any zone or any combination of zones. The built in arpeggiator can be synced to an external MIDI clock, and include many different latch modes and play orders. This flexibility allows for the creation of endless varieties of arpeggios and percussion patterns.
Each zone can be set to play the PC2''s own sounds, or an external MIDI device, or both. Of course, you can set the note range for each zone to create custom splits and layers, as well as customizing velocity responses per zone. Controllers can be scaled both positively and negatively and can have offset values as well as entry and exit values to set their state upon selecting a program or setup. A PC2R setup can have up to 4 zones, and transmit on up to 4 different MIDI channels simultaneously.
The PC2R also features Kurzweil's acclaimed KB3 tone wheel organ modeling technology. Users can adjust most aspects of the organ model including the drawbar settings, vibrato/chorus settings, percussion settings, and more.
The PC2 includes dual effects processors which feature preset effects of the same quality as found in the highly regarded KDFX for the K2500/K2600 series instruments. These processors provide great, high-quality effects with separate send levels per MIDI channel. This allows for stunning and complex effects design.
The 1U rackmount module offers 64 voices of polyphony and can be expanded to 128 voices with the PCX-1 polyphony expansion board. The PC2R features ultra-quiet specs with better than 119dB noise floor and 24-bit digital output (consumer and pro formats supported: AES/EBU and S/PDIF). All options are user installable.
The front panel includes a combination push power switch and master volume control, 2x20 character LCD display, alpha wheel, buttons, 1/4" headphone jack, and LCD contrast control.
The rear panel includes 2 balanced 1/4" jacks (L/R). MIDI I/O/T, a power connector for the external power supply, and digital output (RCA connector offers both AES/EBU, and S/PDIF formats).

Good sounds: clear pianos, good strings, good Wurly, good synth, etc. KB3 (B3 clone) mode is OK, but could scream a bit more. A bit hard to program. Some very odd limitations: no reverb when using Leslie FX; can't save some of the global settings; not much mod possible when editing synth sounds, but overall, I like it.
