Kurzweil SP2X 88-Key Stage Piano

The SP2X delivers the legendary Kurzweil sound, with all of its detail and refinement, in a digital stage piano which is both professional and easy to use. Using the next generation of Kurzweil technology, the SP2X provides some of our best sounds: pianos, EPs, strings, pads, mallets and voices, all available at the touch of a button.

The Sound and Feel
Endless hours of engineering and sample editing went into our Triple Strike Grand Piano sound, and it shows. Behind the scenes, the Kurzweil SP2X's powerful synth engine brings these samples to life and makes them sing. The result is an instrument which not only sounds like, but feels like a real piano.

Kurzweil SP2X Features:


Polyphony
64 note polyphony ensures that notes will continue sounding even under high demand performance situations.

Connectivity
A USB interface allows the Kurzweil SP2X to connect to a computer (Mac or PC) for complete MIDI performance and OS updates.

World Class Effects
The SP2X features Kurzweil's renowned effects processing technology, the same leading-edge technology found in all of our professional products. The SP2X's effects can put the right finish on any sound whether it's crystal clear or warm and organic. Nothing else in the industry even comes close in this department.

Drum Patterns and Rhythms
Ideal for both practice and songwriting, the Kurzweil SP2X comes equipped with 64 pre-recorded drum grooves, rhythms and adjustable metronome.

I will play this until it wears out, and because the USB works so well with soft synths it is infitely expandable.

Sound
I love the piano sound- you are in a chamber with a grand piano with headphones- stunning. The electrics are diverse and cool- the Steely Dan sound is right on. Better than the Rhodes itself. Lush and easily ready to add strings or whatever with a quick stab on the layer button. The piano feel is ecstatic. Perfect. This is not an organ instrument though. There are cool church/cathedrals but I was surprised that the Hammond sounds are sparse. I am okay with that as I bought it as mostly a piano. There are way cool synths. The strings are fabulous. You layer the grand with an orchestra and it is as good as it gets.

Features
USB worked immediately- I have Vista 64, no problem. This is the VERY FIRST TIME I have ever experienced playing a computer keyboard with a soft synth with no perceptible latency. So I can play the internal sounds or soft sounds and can not tell the difference. And ZZounds threw in a soft synth package that is full of wonderful sounds and it all works perfectly either way. Better than I expected- and this should have been written when I bought it in December 2008. Things are probably even better now! I do wish the power connection was more robust but it is not a big deal.

Ease of Use
Turn it on and play it and you won't care what read more features or bells and whistles it has because you are playing a fantastic grand piano immediately.

Quality
Absolutely solid- not as heavy as people say but I don't care because I worry about keyboard that are flexible, not sure if they will work at the gig! This thing is stiff and has nice built-in handles that are molded in and don't look like handles. The keyboard itself is up to aggressive playing- I have a strong touch and it is holding up well after a year.

Value
I was on a budget, and this is not inexpensive, but compared to other brands it is the best deal. I got a steal as it was a "blemished" but the scratch is totally irrelevant.

Manufacturer Support
I never needed to call Kurzweil because everything was either straightforward or available on their website- drivers, updates, ets. all very easy and everything just worked!

The Wow Factor
This was not my first choice- that would have been $500 more and not really worth it now that I have been playing this.

Musical Background:
