The PC3A7 from Kurzweil is a 76-key performance controller that features a semi-weighted hammer-action, velocity- and aftertouch-sensitive keyboard, loaded with a sound set that is both broad and deep. The KORE 64 and the Artis German 9' Grand Piano expansion packs are built-in and together with the KB3 ToneReal Organs and a variety of synthesis engines, they deliver over 1,300 factory programs.

The keyboard is packed with physical controls, and can be set up in a variety of ways for live performance using up to sixteen independent zones. A complete set of effects is also available with the added ability to create complex effect routings, while a comprehensive sequencer is complimented by sixteen arpeggiators and sixteen "Riff" generators. MIDI In, Out, Thru, along with a USB to Host connector provide the means to interface with a computer or other hardware MIDI devices.
