Product Description

Kurzweil PC3LE7

 performance controller delivers a host of sounds, performance and control features that certainly suit the studio producer and touring musician. The PC3LE7's semi-weighted velocity sensitive key-bed gives way to 64 voices of polyphony and up to 1050 V.A.S.T. synthesis programs. Special attention is given to capturing and reproducing the subtle nuances that give instruments their authenticity. The PC3LE7 delivers intuitive control features, up to 700 effects, USB and Device connections, analog and digital outputs, and more, in addition to its sound quality.


PC3 Sounds
All of the PC3's sounds are included - the famous Kurzweil grand piano, vintage electric pianos, Clavinets and Mellotrons, dazzling Orchestral and Strings collections, stunning VA virtual analog synths, KB3 organs, realistic basses, drums, guitars, percussion and horns, General MIDI, plus nearly 200 new programs developed specifically for the LE; over 1050 programs in all.

V.A.S.T. Synthesis Engine
Pristine samples paired with detailed programming of literally hundreds of synth and effects parameters. The results are detailed nuances that include the rosin of a bowed string instrument, the resonant harmonics of a piano's damper pedal, or the thumps and squeaks of an electromechanical keyboard.

Powerful Effects
The PC3LE7 comes equipped with over 700 onboard effects chains from which to choose, all with real-time controllers already assigned to relevant parameters. With world class reverbs that decay into complete silence, warm, classic sounding phasers, flangers and choruses, and burning, saturated distortions, you'll have everything you need to make your music sound like a polished, finished product from the outset. The PC3LE7's architecture provides up to 10 insert effects, which can be distributed among 10 channels, with an available auxiliary effect as well.

Intuitive Control
Turn a knob, hit a button or move a wheel and the LE's screen will display the controller, its real-time value and the parameter being affected. An example would be moving the modwheel on an organ program - you would see the following: "Modwheel 79 Distortion Drive". This system never breaks down - you can change effect chains freely and all of this info remains intact, updated to reflect the new chain you've selected. Also, this info is transferred seamlessly to Setup Mode - you can see whatever controllers have been assigned to programs used in any zone of a setup.

Easy Sound Editing
In any given program or effects chain, the relevant parameters, the ones that you'd want to tweak and adjust, have been assigned real-time controllers. Move a controller and hit the SAVE button - no menus, no pages with endless parameters - and you get one touch sound customization.

Drum Pads
8 backlit, velocity-sensitive drum pads can be used to trigger sounds, sequences, chords and arpeggiations. Every program in the machine has a drum kit assigned to the pads, so you'll always have access to a rhythm track when you need it. As a bonus, we've included a set of over 100 new drum programs, with acoustic brush kits, slammin' rock kits and a number of heavily effected techno/electronic kits, in addition to the 24 existing kits from the PC3.

Saving, loading and updating the OS are all made easy on the LE with the inclusion of both USB Host and Device ports. You can save your user programs, setups and songs to a USB thumb-drive or directly to a computer. OS updates can be loaded from a thumb-drive or directly from your computer, and of course the LE sends and receives MIDI over USB. Standard MIDI jacks are also included for In, Out and Thru. For audio, the PC3LE7 features high-quality, hum-cancelling, stereo balanced analog outputs, with 24-bit DACs as well as a 24-bit stereo S/PDIF digital output at 48K.
