Nice mid range from Kurzweil
devnexen, 10.11.2020
Ten years ago, I ordered from the same Thomann its predecessor the PC3k serie. I purposely did not "bathe" myself into Youtube videos to still be surprised as I trust the brand since I know since the K2xx time.

Main difference is the weight, nearly twice less due to the plastic instead of metal. The screen is much better, however the power supply is not good quality to say the least. Bit disappointed not having UK supply thankfully I had a convertor. The power switch button lack firmness. But I understand the PC serie is not the brand flagship anymore but the Forte is. Speaking of Forte if you re more a pianist I would recommend this model or the SP serie otherwise you would be disappointed by the keybed type. Otherwise for synth players like me it is ok.

The FM engine is really a nice addition without hesitation.

It‘s the Sound - und das trifft hier völlig zu Recht zu
Soundschleuder, 13.12.2020
Die von Kurzweil hatten es schon immer geschafft, einen warmen aber satten Sound mit wenigen MB’s rauszuhauen. Die Piano- und Orgelsounds der PC-Keyboards von Kurzweil sind m.E. im direkten Vergleich zu den gigabytestarken Sounds der japanischen Konkurrenz viel durchsetzungsfähiger im Bandzusammenspiel - es zählt tatsächlich was hinten (oder auch vorne) rauskommt. Bei den Klängen sind m.E. die Strings, Ensemble und Brasssounds unschlagbar. Klangbeispiele hierzu bietet hier Don Airey, von Deep Purple, der mit den Orchestersounds vom PC3K8 beeindruckt. Beim PC4 sind die Best-Of-Sounds der PC3-K Serie inkl. der der KORE-Erweiterung mit dabei. Ich finde, dass die mit der 256fachen Polyfonie des PC4 noch ein wenig frischer klingen. Nicht ganz so toll gelungen, sind m.E. die Akkordeon und die Glocken/Fantasiosounds des Keyboards. Hier gibt es jedoch Abhilfe: der PC4 ist kompatibel zu allen Vorgängermodellen (PC3/K25/K26/K20). Dank seiner FM Engine können können tausende DX7-Patches geladen werden. Insgesamt lässt das Keyboard Samples und Soundmaterial bis 2 Gigabytes zu. Auf der Kurzweil-Homepage wird man auf Soundtauschbörsen und Softwarehersteller aufmerksam. Das PC4 ist leichter und kompakter wie manche Keyboards mit 76 Tasten. Die Tasten lassen sich einwandfrei spielen. Die Anschlaghärte lässt schnelle Orgel- und Leadparts problemlos spielen und gibt zudem für die Pianoparts den richtigen Halt. Die beste Eigenschaft an diesem Keyboard ist tatsächlich die bühnentauglichkeit. Wie der Name -Performance Controller- schon sagt, kann ich das Keyboard auf alle möglichen Liveanforderungen programmieren und das sogar noch viel leichter als beim Vorgänger PC3K. Ich kann mit nur einem Multi auf 16 verschiedene Klänge umschalten. Mit 16 Midiparts könnte ich genausoviel Soundmodule und Synths schalten und ansteuern - brauche ich aber nicht, weil der PC4 alles an Sounds bietet, was ich brauche. Das Gerät lässt sich tatsächlich mit Fußschaltern, Aftertouch, Wheels, Knobs, Regler, Tastern und Ribboncontroller umschalten, erhöhen, verzerren und in allen Richtungen verbiegen. Ein ganz tolles Lob an die Verkäufer/Berater von Thomann. Die sind unschlagbar im Produktwissen und geben als Hobbymusiker super Tipps für die Bühne.

Perfect all-in-one solution for live performances.
OceanMan, 23.04.2020
Having used a Kurzweil PC3X as my main keyboard for about 10 years, I was exited about getting the new light weight PC4.
I am playing in a cover band playing all kinds of rock tunes and the Kurzweil’s are perfect for that.

Cutting almost 12 kilogram off a keyboard comes at a cost off course; plastic contruction rather than metal, external power supply and slightly worse keybed.
But these are minor concerns as the PC4 feels very well build and nice to play over all. The action isn’t exactly wonderful, but perfectly fine to play and it’s surprisingly fast.

The PC4 has much, much better pianos, EP’s and clavinets than the PC3 and the new FM-Engine is great fun.
The KB3 organ engine also seems to sound slightly better than in the PC3, especially the key click.
Compared to my Roland FA-06 which is another mid-range workstation, the PC4 shines in almost every sound category, and it blows the Roland out the water in terms of sound quality.

I am really looking forward to take this beast on stage.

Muy satisfecho
fedex, 18.11.2019
Tenia un kurweil pc3x, una pasada de teclado pero ya bastante viejo asi que decidì comprar un pc4.
Estoy muy satisfecho, en general el pc4 es un pc3 pero mucho mas sencillo de usar, todo mejor organizado, mas moderno (muy buena pantalla) y sistema de martillos mejorado (aunque todavia no es de los mejores que hay) y tiene una infinidad de sonidos.
Lo que me no me ha convencido mucho es el echo que pesa muy poco, parece casi de levantar un jugete.....esto porque està enteramente echo de plastico! Es sin duda muy positivo a la hora de transportarlo, pero por otro lado se convierte en un teclado muy delicado, hay mucho movimiento de torsiòn asi hay que tener muchisimo cuidado en manejarlo.
A parte esto estoy muy contento con mi compra.
