Kurzweil Micro Piano Module

This synth was used on the song Closure (Piano sound)

This was a great little piano module when it came out. The strings are limited but actually pretty good.

The Kurzweil Micro Piano was the piano in What’s That You Said?

The DEMO Sequence: To hear some of the capabilities of the Micro Piano, try listening to the DEMO sequence. This can be done by selecting CHANNEL mode and turning the Data knob past 16. The display will look like this “dEn” and the DEMO will play. Fun times.
