      Comments about Kurzweil Kore 64 ROM Expansion Kit for PC3 and PC3K:

      I am a hobbyist who likes the quality sounds of Kurzweil keyboards. I am very pleased with the sounds on my PC3K8, which is already a "swiss army knife" for music production. The Kore 64 ROM was for me a worthwhile upgrade, adding even more versatility.Installation was easy. The instructions were clear, and I had no problems or head-scratching (though I am a seasoned Kurz user).There are many patches on this ROM that I am not interested in at all (synths, drum sets, shredder/grunge guitars, jazz brass ensembles). However, I really like pads and clean electric guitars, and there are a few on this ROM that make the purchase worthwhile for me. The specialized percussion sounds are great too. I was not as enthusiatic as other reviewers about the specialty plucked instruments, such as mandolins and banjo's.Over all, this was a worthwhile purchase for me, just for the patches provided. However, I also know from 10 years of Kurzweil ownership, that there are 3rd party soundware developers who will created custom sound banks just for this ROM. I am very excited to see what comes up.

        Comments about Kurzweil Kore 64 ROM Expansion Kit for PC3 and PC3K:

        The Kore 64 ROM brings some great new samples and incredible programming to the PC3 series. The programming is especially well done, with each program taking full advantage of every slider and modulation source on the PC3.

        The sound-set programmed around the new ROM focuses heavily on synth and drum sounds. While these are not my personal cup-of-tea (I'm more of a bread & butter/orchestral player), they are extremely playable and show the power of the PC3's VAST architecture. The drums, particularly, are some of the best and balanced drum samples I've encountered (even when compared to large computer-based drum libraries).

        The new guitars make the ROM a must-buy on their own. Even though I rarely try to cover guitar parts on a keyboard, I've found the new guitars to be extremely playable. I've 'landed' on a guitar patch and stayed there for 20-30 minutes just exploring all the different ways to play the program. Big kudos to the Kurzweil team for the incredible programming that went into these new guitar patches. I expected improved guitars based on the reviews, but the more I play these guitars the more I think they are the hidden gem in the ROM (and really address what some have considered a weaker category in the stock PC3 soundset).

        The new brass/sax samples add very playable section and solo instruments that complement the existing brass and reeds. These new samples really shine when you explore the setups (in PC3 Setup mode) that employ these new programs. As with the guitars, each 'visit' to these setups becomes a 30 minute one-man jam.

        There are also many new percussion samples/kits, and some great ambient pads (many with motion).

        In summary, I consider the ROM a must-buy for anyone with a PC3. The new samples shine with the expert programming, and the most exciting thing is that these new samples are now source material for new programs and the PC3 VAST architecture.

          Comments about Kurzweil Kore 64 ROM Expansion Kit for PC3 and PC3K:

          B&H fast ship as usual!
          The install was actually easier than I anticipated - if you can install ram in your computer, you can install this rom. I had to change jumpers to the PC3, as I have an "X." Install was flawless.

          This ROM definitely brings a new dimension to the PC3. I love the multilayer pads, ethnic tunes, sax etc.
          There is a lot of control through the sliders that the folks at Kurzweil put into even the drums - press that "info" to see just how much control they added to tweak the sound to your needs. Really fun on the saxes-brings it to life!
          The new drums are definitely more addictive than their older counterparts.
          Also for the guitars, I would recommend getting the ribbon controller - really helps.

          I would say this rom now reaffirms that I made the choice by going Kurzweil.

            The KORE 64™ ROM option represents a complete expansion and reimagining of the PC3 and PC3K's sonic potential. Pushing the limits of V.A.S.T. synthesis for both realistic and experimental electronic sounds, KORE 64™ adds over 300 new programs, including stunning new Synths, Electric Guitars, Horns, Drums and Percussion. With KORE 64™ installed, the PC3/K built-in program library now totals over 1400 presets! New samples modeled after the Oberheim SEM, ARP Chroma, TX802, CZ1, and dozens of legacy waveforms from the K series.
