P.S: Forgot to mention the power supply... the worst idea Kurzweil ever had. Why not just an IEC cord, instead of Kurzweil's unique, fragile, four-pin plug? (Try plugging that in on a dark stage in a hurry!!!)

I currently use a PC2R (the module version of the PC2) and am very impressed with the excellent piano patches. On both studio and live recordings the PC2R delivers very realistic piano sounds, good wurlitzers (the best samples I've heard) and really happening organ patches (with realtime drawbar action!). My only gripe with this machine is the Rhodes samples... as an owner of the real deal I am not easily impressed, and after touring with the PC2R, the Rhodes sound was the only thing about my setup that began frustrate me. However, I did get quite a few compliments from other musicians and punters on how realistic the Rhodes sounded!!! Maybe it's just me...

I chose the Kurzweil PC2 over the Rolands and Yamahas, etc mainly because I was blown away by the piano sounds in the music store. Two things you may want to know: First, if you're a heavy handed player go easy on this Fatar action. I caused a clicking noise to develop in some of the most played notes, presumably by smashing the felt that stops the key travel or whatever the mechanism is that it uses. It's only a problem when playing at low volume without headphones (it annoys me). Second, I don't think you can appreciate the quality of the piano sounds without running a stereo setup. I have a Roland KC 500 amp and the piano sounds sound weird in the midrange frequencies. But put on a good pair of headphones and, wow! Unbelievable pianos. I'm going to buy a second amp or a stereo PA system to run through. That power supply issue (mentioned in a previous post) is another dumb idea Kurzweil had. Just cram that transformer in somewhere and supply a standard power cord, guys. It's a great board for the price, though.

GOT IT ABOUT A MONTH AGO. LOVE THE SOUNDS, FEEL, ETC. (MAKE SURE THAT YOUR NEW ONE HAS THE NEW OS VERSION 2.1 INSTALLED!) IT'S PURPLE! WHAT'S UP WITH THAT? I'M GLAD THAT I'M SECURE IN MY MASCULINITY. ALL KIDDING ASIDE, FOR THE BUCK, THERE ISN'T A BETTER QUALITY BOARD OUT THERE! IT'S GOING TO RESET THE STANDARD. YOU NO LONGER HAVE TO SPEND $3000 TO GET GREAT QUALITY AND UPGRADABILITY.

Great realsitic sounds, especially the acoustic pianos, and electric pianos. Great new Wurlitzer sounds.This has been a great additioan to my midi rig. Using the PC 2X and the rack mount version PC2R. The organs in the KB-3 mode sound great as well. I found a great deal at Mac Midi Music. www.macmidimusic.com
