I had a kt 88 and liked it a lot but then i had problems with the keys and the so called experts told me I'll never get parts for it so I donated it to a local church and they love it. I'm sorry i gave it to them so i saw a used kt 76 so i bought it! Everything works, a little trouble with pressure to make the rotary sound but eventually it go on! My question is what sounds does the PCMCIA ram cards have? More Organ or strings?

hi there, i have recently bought a ensoniq ht 76 and got a couple of issues, the display lights up, but no text appears and the control buttons and lights dont operate either, i have hooked it up with a midi keyboard and have accessed some of the sounds and it sounds great, so... i took the covers off and removed the boards/wiggled the connectors and made sure they were all plugged properly and put it back together and still it is acting the same, anyway... if anyone out there knows something it would be greatly appreciated cheers matt (australia)

I've been using the KT-76 semi-professionally for the past ten years. It has proved to be a reliable and versatile keyboard. It’s got a nice, natural key action with good all-around samples and an intuitive interface. I particularly like the presets where you can set up performance patches and split/layer the keyboard across eight “zones�. It has a more than adequate on-board sequencer and a nice complement of effects. The user manual is (typical for Ensoniq products) very readable and user-friendly. If I had anything negative to say about the KT-76, it would be about its lack of a good Rhodes sample. Also, the plastic construction of the counterweight mechanism tends to become brittle over time and fracture during use. I have taken the unit apart numerous times to remove little pieces of loose plastic that rattle around inside. It is also a fairly heavy board for its size. Other than that, I have been very pleased with it over the years.

Everything in the last review is bang on. I particularly love the synth sounds. They can be very powerful yet soft at the same time with crisp clarity in the tones. The pianos are fantastic. This is one keyboard I'll never part with.

If you find one of these boards used, you've probably been looking for a weighted key synth with a nice piano sound. You won't be disappointed with the keyboard action nor the synth engine. The action is a true hammered mechanism and it feels good when playing - a little on the heavy side but not mushy, and responds crisply on repeated notes with no bouncing. The synth engine has some very useful factory piano patches as well as a broad range of rompler sounds via sampled waves. The Celeste patch is killer authentic, and the 76 Rhodes is very convincing. The KT can do a good analog emulation complete with a quality resonant digital filter and portamento. You can make the filters sweep very nicely and some analog string patches rival some classics like the Roland JX series for growl and chorusing. Highly recommended for the money when looking for a weighted key piano action synth with good sounds.
