I had a loaded K2600RS, for the briefest amount of time, but had to sell it to help pay for classes. I really want another one. br> br>

| br>I've had two K2600S, and a PC3A6. Really loved the PC3A6.
Here's to hoping the PC4 is "all that" ... br> br>
| br>Wow DX7 inside!
I still have two K2600RS,one full expanded,both with card readers
Massive impact sounding synth.
have had the K2661 but sold because it sound a bit less dynamic then the older K2600(RS). br> br>
| br>I'm impressed that Kurzweil kept up with the Forte as well: Forte owners will see most (if not all) PC4 features with the upcoming OS v4, less the new PC4 interface. br> br>

I would be much more interested if they offered it with a five-octave non-weighted keyboard (with Vel and AT). I bet a lot of other people would be, too.
And put the damn pitch bend and mod wheels to the left of the keyboard where they belong, not way up there in the top left corner. br> br>
