2GB of Sounds
The Forte SE features the new High Definition Japanese Grand (optimised especially for the SE) and German D Grand, featuring "KSR" - Kurzweil String Resonance. Also included are a wide selection of tailored sounds from the acclaimed Forte (EP, Clav, Celeste, Crotales, Harpsichord), as well as PC3 Series and KORE 64 expansions - all handcrafted to deliver unprecedented expressiveness with an obsessive attention to detail. Flash-Play powers the Forte SE with 2 GB of on-board sample content with zero-loading time, loads of powerful DSP and ultrafast performance. Every sound within the Forte SE is perfectly matched to its 88-note fully-weighted Italian hammer-action keyboard with aftertouch.
The Forte SE grants full access to Kurzweil's legendary Variable Architecture Synthesis Technology directly from the front panel. With 32-layers per program, each offering its own signal path and a host of modular DSP tools, the Forte SE offers a wealth of sound creation and modification that is truly immense. Award-winning Reverbs, Delays, Choruses, Flangers, Phasers, Distortions, Rotary Amplifiers, Compressors and more are available and all fully editable from the user-interface. Dial it in with the Master EQ section featuring Bass, Treble, a sweepable Midrange and on/off switch. Using your Mac/PC or iPad, get deeper into editing your Forte SE's Programs, Multis and Effects.

No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
