Kurzweil PC-88 MIDI controller / Piano

This synth was used on the song What’s That You Said? (Bass sound)

A big, heavy beast. Solid and well build. The Kurzweil piano sounds and the action of a real piano sold me on this unit. Little did I know I’d use some of the other sounds as well. The jazz bass sounds are quite nice.

Look Ma,. mo’ specs.
