KB3 ToneReal™ Organs
Phenomenally accurate piano patches are where Kurzweil has chiefly achieved their stellar reputation, but their organ timbres are likewise among the most realistic and thrilling in the industry, even comparing favorably to organ specialty manufacturers. The Artis KB3 bank is modeled after classic Hammond, Vox and Farfisa organs, and features all the controls you want and more, including 9 realistic drawbars.
From classic to cutting edge, the Artis programs comprise the best sounds from the PC3K and KORE 64 collections plus Kurzweil’s NEW piano, Vintage Electric Pianos, Clavinets, Synthesizers, rich and realistic String Sections and Orchestras, Guitars, Percussion and much more.
256 Factory Multis
Whether for multitimbral functions in sequencing applications or huge, stacked layers, the Artis’ ability to deliver dense, complex and harmonically rich sounds is among its chief attractions. Layered, sublime, fearless and funky Kurzweil Artis Multis will have your inspiration up and running in no time. Up to 4 zones, split/layer, extensive MIDI control, individual zone volume and mute control.
Powerful FX Engine
Award-winning Reverbs, Delays, Choruses, Flangers, Phasers, Distortions, Rotary Amplifiers, Compressors and more. An electric piano patch only truly captures its appropriate idiomatic timbre when you send it through the expected phase shifter, or stereo tremolo effect. A light reverb enhances solo piano performance to an amazing degree, especially if the room is carpeted and not reverberant. Clean, quiet, smartly and tastefully designed, the Aris effects add the perfect “extra” to an incredible array of brilliant sounds.
