The Artis SE from Kurzweil is an 88-key digital stage piano featuring the company's expressive German 9' Grand Piano sound, matched with a weighted Fatar TP-100 hammer action and velocity sensitive keyboard. Other sounds include multiple selections from the PC3K and KORE 64 collections, among them vintage electric pianos, clavinets, synthesizers, string sections and orchestras, guitars, percussion, and more. The keyboard can be mapped out with up to four zones and split and layered.
