Kurzweil Artis 88-key Stage Piano at a Glance:
Amazing sounds including German 9' grand, PC3 sounds, and more
Kurzweil has always been known for incredible sounds with depth and realism, and the Artis doesn't disappoint. A never-before-heard German 9' grand piano is the star of the show here, but that's just the start. You also get the venerable KB3 ToneReal organ soundset, giving you access to awesome emulations of vintage keys. And with a slew of sounds from the KORE 64 ROM expansion from the Kurzweil PC3, you'll have a top-notch selection of synths, horns, guitars, drums and percussion at your fingertips with the Kurzweil Artis.
Fast, intuitive sound management for enjoyable stage performance
When you're performing on stage you don't have time to stop and navigate your keyboard settings. While it's easy to create your custom set of sounds on the Artis before you hit the stage, it's just as easy to tweak things on the fly too. With nine sliders and a 3-band EQ section right on the front panel, you can tweak your sounds however you need to without missing a beat. And thanks to the Quick Split/Layer control, it's just as easy to combine and layer sounds without needing a set break.
Dynamically-allocated polyphony and other features for seamless sound and performance
While it's not a new feature for Kurzweil it's one of their best - dynamic allocation of polyphony means you'll never hear notes "drop off" when you reach maximum polyphony. So even if you're playing heavily-layered sounds with lots of effects, the Artis is selective about which voices to drop in favor of new voices. You don't really need to think about it, but it's a huge deal when you hear how seamless and natural performances sound even with complex sounds.
