Kurzweil Artis SE - we have a picture.

 

We got to the first image Kurzweil Artis SE.

 

Too many do not know about it. The keyboard of this instrument has a 88-key. He obtained zgrabniejsze form, and was deprived of the side buttons to select which categories of sounds. The remaining 4 potentiometers and external controllers for EQ. It is known that it will have 128 voices of polyphony and 256 sounds and pianos from the model Artis with KB3 sounds. We do not know his weight and has been stripped of features, or sounds.

Boy, they sure do shy away from large displays.....all that real estate and a tiny display.

 

 

Can't go selling too many , they would be run off their feet trying to cope with orders :). IMHO if they made the screen bigger - with nothing extra on it - sales would jump out of control.

It seems that the Artis SE is a budget version of the Artis. If they were looking for the ways they could lower the price, I don't think I'd expect a large display.

 

 

Maybe this is the best place for a shameless plug! Our now not-so-new new video at https://youtu.be/3ZRC3b4p4EI is a 40 minute adaptation of T. S. Eliot's "Prufrock" - check it out! And hopefully I'll have something new here this year. ;-)

Guessing this will be competing with the Casio PX5s. The plastic construction will probably take the weight down to around 15kg or so, assuming it's the tp100 action. I wonder how keen they'll get the price. Would be great to get more info on this one from Kurz but nothing on the website yet...

Life is full of compromise, fellas. :idea:

 

I think it's a safe bet that there will be a replacement for the SP4-7 at some point that will have the Artis piano.

 

Indeed...

I think the wait for a 76 key with hammer action will go on for some time yet though, unless you want a Kronos 73 or Nord 73

Just a small correction - the Hammer action Nords have 76 keys, E to G. Only waterfall, semiweighted keys are limited to 73 note F to F.

 

However - if you want a tight form factor, 76 note hammer action keyboard the Viscount Physis K5 might be perfect.

Nord Electro 3/4 HP and Nord Piano 2 HP are 73 key weighted action, E to E. (Kronos 73 and SV1-73 are E-to-E as well, as is the Studiologic Acuna 73.)

You were incorrect to correct me. As AnotherScott pointed out, there are a few 73 key Nords with hammer action. There is also the 76 ones, eg Nord Stage 2 76

Sorry - I was sure that the HP models were 76 note as well, but they're really 73 note E-E, Fatar TP100. The Stage 2 that has a TP40 keyboard instead, is a 76 note E-G

Interestingly, the specs say "internal power supply" but the back panel image suggests otherwise!

 

 

that seems correct

from the manual

 

The DC Power Adapter

Use the provided DC power adapter to connect the Artis SE to a standard AC power source.

Please refer to Step 3 on page GS-4 above

The TP100 is not really a shocker to me. That seems to be their go-to action for their midrange line. The Kurz boards have always been heavier than the competition as well.

 

The more significant compromises are the microscopic display from the SP-4 series and the lack of parametric mid on the EQ.

 

Price, of course, is still the big variable here.

I guess the question is, if you wanted to make a lower cost version of the Artis 88, what would you cut instead? But yes, I'm assuming price will be substantially less than the full Artis. Though it would have been interesting to see it come in at a lower weight and 73 keys, too.
