Whether you're rocking Rachmaninoff or a blistering synth lead, keyboard feel is everything. As your fingers glide across the Kurzweil Forte SE's 88 Italian weighted-hammer-action keys, you're rediscovering the joy of playing. The sonic performance is brilliant across the board; from the high-definition Japanese Grand and German D to electric piano, clavinet, harpsichord, celeste, crotales, and more - including PC3 series and Kore 64 expansions. Lean into a note to add vibrato: you've got aftertouch. Add reverb from the onboard multi-FX engine. Mobilize any of eight arpeggiators. There are so many more powerful features, yet the Kurzweil Forte SE is quick and easy to navigate.

- Load sounds instantly with FlashPlay technology
- Packed with powerful features - and control
- Dynamically allocated polyphony for seamless sonic performance
You have 2GB of killer sounds in the Kurzweil Forte SE, and the best part is that you can load any sound instantly. Kurzweil calls it FlashPlay technology, and it means you'll never slow down or botch a performance due to loading times. Kurzweil knows what you need to perform with confidence, and you get it all in the Forte SE.
Packed with powerful features - and control
When you're performing onstage, you don't need a stage piano that fights you back. To that end, Kurzweil fortified the Forte SE with a powerful feature set that not only loads sounds instantly, it lets you navigate fast. The onboard FX Engine delivers a full range of editable effects, from reverbs, delays, and dynamics to rotary speaker simulation for your organ patches. Eight arpeggiators let you whip up compelling rhythmic patterns quickly. There's even an easy-access 3-band Master EQ. And to command it all, you get 28 fully programmable physical controllers.
Dynamically allocated polyphony for seamless sonic performance
While it's not a new feature for Kurzweil, it's one of our favorites here at Derringers Music: dynamic allocation of polyphony. The implementation of this technology in the Forte SE means you'll never hear notes drop off when you reach maximum polyphony. So even if you're playing heavily layered sounds with lots of effects, the Forte SE is selective about which voices to drop in favor of new ones. You don't really need to think about it, but it's a huge deal when you hear how seamless and natural performances sound even with complex layered patches.
