aha!

Hopefully a PC4 rather than Forte OS 4 (or both, to keep them Forte owners happy Something more affordable and smaller than a Forte would be well interesting for me.

A 61 key Forte basically?

Whatever it is, I hope they put the touch strips and breath control input back in.

As much as I'd like to see what a PC4 could be, it's probably more likely that it's Forte OS 4.0.

Even if it is Forte OS 4, they have to be aware that there’s very real interest in a 61-key version of that keyboard regardless of the specific name they give it. Here’s hoping there’s a little of something for everyone!

I really hope you are correct, because I was so enthusiastic to buy a Forte, that actually I hoped Kurzweil won't emerge with a new flagship model this NAMM.

The Forte is still pretty new in today's terms IMO, and since all keyboards manufacturers slowed down their release rate in the last decade, I actually feel pretty comfortable to purchase a model that was released for the first time in 2015.

I just wanted to wait to NAMM to get confirmation that everything OK, and to order the Forte immediately after that.

Anyone has a clue whether an OS update should effect the Forte's price point, and if so, about how much?

It doesn't bother me if Kurzweil will decide to manufacture a 61 keys version, if there is a demand for that, why not?

I just want them to keep manufacture a 76 weighted version, because that was what I was planning to get...

Anything less then 88 keys it's a big compromise for me, but I can't compromise on portability, also can't play anything on unweighted action, and 61 keys is really too less.

Actually it will be best if the will keep with Fatar TP/40, after all my efforts to find out whether it fits me...

A guy replied Spoiler alert: It's an OS update, not a new synth/workstation and they replied with the gif You know nothing, Jon Snow

Let's wait

Wonderful news if true
