115 sound programs (1 sound bank)

Synth Pads
A large collection of warm, lush, sharp and modern “analog & digital” synth pads carefully designed for various music styles.

173 sound programs (2 sound banks)

Synth Leads
Selection of monophonic and polyphonic leads with 70s and 80s retro feeling, including contemporary experimental leads. The aftertouch and portamento is extensively used to emulate the real lead synthesizer play style.

148 sound programs (2 sound banks)

ARP/SEQ Programs
Sound programs designed for the Arpeggiators and Step sequencers. The ARP/SEQ programs use filtered KVA – Virtual Analogue Oscillators - Saw, Square, Super Saw, Triple Saw and PWM, with extensive support of onboard real time MIDI controllers. For detailed description of the Kurzweil PC3K/PC3 and PC3LE MIDI controller settings, see the “PC3K/PC3:Works real time MIDI controller standard” table below.

105 sound programs (1 sound bank)

Sync Programs
Category containing leads and filtered programs with the oscillator sync. Oscillator sync is one of the features available on synthesizers with two or more oscillators, where one oscillator restarts the period of the second one, so they have the same base frequency. The timbre is then altered on the synced oscillator by adjusting its frequency input providing sharp and metallic sounds.

50 sound programs (1 sound bank)

Note: This soundware collection is designed for Kurzweil PC3X, PC3 and PC361 synthesizers without optional ROM boards installed.
