Kurzweil says that, with its new v3.0 update, to be previewed at NAMM, their Forte Stage Piano and Synthesizer evolves into a full Workstation. Here's the story in their own words...
Well equipped with a 16-track sequencer and 16 simultaneous multi Riffs, Forte v3.0 imports MIDI files and Kurzweil PC3 family songs. Its sequencer, fully editable, features a new user interface designed for its 480 x 272 color LCD. Forte v3.0 Riffs have all the parameters and capabilities of PC3-family Riffs that, in addition to the 16 simultaneous arpeggiators, provide all the grooves you need. Forte v3.0 also offers many new productivity features including a Global Mixer page and a new LED ladders mode.
As the most advanced keyboard to ever bear the Kurzweil logo, the Forte is a Stage Piano, a Synthesizer and now a Workstation as well. The Forte offers a fully-weighted, hammer-action velocity-sensitive keybed, an industry-leading selection of Flash-Play® sounds like German and Japanese grand pianos, 3.3 GB for user samples, KB3 Tone Real emulation organs, a powerful FX engine, and Kurzweil's legendary V.A.S.T synthesis.
Pricing and Availability:
v3.0 "Workstation" upgrade will be available to Forte owners, free of charge, from the Kurzweil website in Q1 2018.
