Standalone FORTE SE SoundEditor

The Forte SE SoundEditor is a full-featured Editor/Librarian and Sound Development tool designed for Kurzweil Forte SE keyboards. SoundTower's Editor greatly expands the editing experience by displaying every editable Forte SE’s parameter in a series of logical, easy-to-use graphical interfaces. SoundEditor allows you to create, edit, organize and store Forte Programs, Multi, and Effects. Through a standard MIDI connection (DIN or USB), SoundEditor can receive and transmit individual Programs, Multi, Effects, or entire banks to the Forte SE.

The Forte SE series was originally developed and introduced to the market as a piano keyboard with a very limited editing capabilities. This has changed with the introduction of the Forte OS update 1.20. You will be amazed what you can find inside this rather simple looking piano keyboard. To your surprise, you will be able to access and use many features that normally are not listed in Forte SE specifications. The editor will make possible for you to reach inside and unleash the amazing power of the Kurzweil sound technology.   

Please note! This editor is not a software instrument and it will produce no sounds unless connected with the Kurzweil FORTE SE series keyboard.
