Kurzweil PCR-2 Classic Keys ROM
The PCR-2 Classic Keys ROM Soundblock features authentic reproductions of "vintage" keyboard sounds which over the years have become essential to the modern keyboardist. Classic Keys also makes use of the PC series base ROM samples and includes "vintage" Rhodes Wurlitzer programs. For PC2 users, 4 new additional KB3 Organ programs are included as well.
The samples in this virtual instrument set are of the highest quality having been recorded and processed with the expertise for which Kurzweil is famous. The PC series synthesis engine provided a variety of powerful sound-sculpting tools and the finishing touches were added with the PC series effects engine which utilizes the same technology as Kurzweil's acclaimed KDFX (for the K2500/2600 keyboards) and the award-winning KSP8 processor. Kurzweil was able to precisely recreate the timbres from many live and studio recordings which have helped define the "vintage" sound. Effects pedals, speaker cabinets and recording techniques have all been faithfully replicated giving the Kurzweil Classic Keys programs a level of detail and realism never before achieved in any "vintage" keyboard emulation.
