Major cleanup


I have deleted around 40,000 bogus SPAM users and have changed the registration process to be manually approved, let’s see if that helps keeping the bogus users under control.

Some users with 0 posts were deleted too. If you are one of them and want to actually be part of Ksetlist, please re-register and this time introduce yourself in the People forum (that’s the check to avoid SPAMMERS).

Happy sound sharing,



And 2022 is almost done

Dear all,

2022 is almost done. Just a few lingering days to reflect on the old passing year and to look forward to the brand new year that is yet to come.

Ksetlist has seen a very low posting activity year. Probably the lowest ever. On the other hand there are lots of new users signing in (even excluding all the SPAM bogus users) to download the content that already exists, which is great content.

The reasons are multiple. On one side, there are some classic forums with expert Kurzweil overlords still going strong like the great Mastering VAST forum. On the other side, Facebook groups have grown a lot and have a lot of activity. There are a bunch of them so I’m not going to put links but if you are on Facebook you can just search for them.

Ksetlist was never meant to compete with any of those two. It was always about having a place to upload and download sounds in an organized way. That’s it! And, while it has some discussion forums, that was never the goal and it will keep not being the goal. It isn’t a company forum either, so even if I manage it and I work for Young Chang (makers of Kurzweil), it’s not related to my job, which is write and mange the software, so I’m not in the forum often. It’s not a “Ask Fran a question” forum. Of course if there is something I can help with, I will, as you know, but I can’t stress this enough, Ksetlist is a repository of sounds by the community for the community.

Now, when people don’t visit the place often, as you do with social media like Facebook, people tend to forget it exists and contributions start winding down and the place looks more abandoned. But, I can tell you, there are new users downloading sounds every week. It’s actually very much alive on the Download side.

Now, my wish for 2023 is for those users who are downloading sounds, to upload just a few of their own favorite sounds to Ksetlist and help grow the library. I know, some people think their sounds are not good enough, but, if you use it in your cover band to play a song from a famous artist, please post it. Somebody will appreciate it. Thanks!

On the SPAM side, bogus users are coming to the forum in the thousands, and I’ll try to do a big cleanup soon. Remember to post at least ONE post introducing yourself. If you have ZERO posts, your account will be deleted!!! That’s the only way I have to know real vs SPAM. So, if you haven’t done it yet, please introduce yourself in the People forum.

I wish all of you a great 2023 and keep playing great music with great Kurzweil keyboards!



Beta testers


If you own a K2700, PC4 or PC4 SE, please sign up for Kurzweil Beta Testing Program.

It’s easy, doesn’t require much other than running newer OSs once in a while if you can. If you can’t (you are gigging, you don’t have the time) then there is no problem whatsoever.

And sometimes you get to test new features before everybody else get them, which is pretty cool.

To sign up, just write an email to, or .






Ksetlist has a new SSL as of today, please let me know if you see any problems.

This new one costs $95/year, half of the one the we had before, but that is added to the server and domain costs.

Thanks so much to those who have clicked on the donation button. It’s just $5, the price of your favorite fancy coffee, and helps to keep this site alive.

Please keep sharing those sounds!



February 23


More K2700’s are getting in the hands of users and the feedback we are receiving is amazing. Also some big names are starting to use it, which is always very cool, including the Broadway guys that already have it in some shows around the globe. Reviews are coming out in webs and magazines too. Check official Kurzweil social media to see their links. External Editor, Controllers and Plug ins are also either released or being released these days, so check them out at .

PC4 SE is also starting to show up. It’s like an improved SP6 with a sequencer and nicer UI. We put a good amount of work in adding on-screen help quick tips that will make the life of a newbie to Kurzweil much easier, and having a larger screen than the SP6 will make it easier to edit your multi zones, for example. While there is not much buzz about it, because it comes right after the K2700 and that one is getting all the attention, this PC4 SE could be a great keyboard for those of you who mostly play presets (it has a ton!) but need good MIDI control and like to record your MIDI tracks on the keyboard, among other improvements. Of course you can always pay a little more and go to the PC4 with all the features but, if you don’t need those extra features, this one will do it for you at a lower price point.

We have Beta groups open for K2700, PC4, Forte and SP6. Soon we’ll open the PC4 SE. If you own any of those keyboards you can send me a message to sign up.

One reminder. KSetlist is not an official communication forum for Kurzweil. You can write in the forum asking about this or that but that does not mean that anybody at Kurzweil (other than me) will look at it. And I am not a support person so I’ll answer occasionally. If you really need to ask something to Kurzweil there is a support page at and I will recommend you to go thru it. Writing in the forum is meant just as a communication tool for users of Ksetlist.

As always, the main goal of Ksetlist is to share free sounds of famous songs for other fellow Kurzweil players to use in their shows. Making the life of each other easier.

Please share!

And remember to make good music.




And 2021 is about to leave us. What a weird year. Lots of ups and downs with the pandemia; vaccines, mutations, back to normality, back to restrictions, losing friends, musicians that resumed touring to then have them canceled again, it’s been definitely a weird year. I really hope that 2022 will eventually settle down in a path towards normality even if the beginning will be crazy with Omicron.

Ksetlist have also had a weird year. On one hand the platform seems to be stable. We have lots of spambots attacking it but it’s holding up pretty well. Remember to write at least one post in the forum if you don’t want your account deleted (all accounts with zero posts get deleted as they are considered spam). While we have gotten some new sounds (thanks!) the rate is pretty slow. I would encourage you to keep posting those sounds that will make the lives of other fellow keyboardists much easier. That’s the spirit of this site, to share sounds. Please share!

The PC4 is doing really well and has brought us a new generation of Kurzweil users. And they will be soon joined by the K2700 and PC4 SE users. In other words, there’s going to be plenty of new people to have more action on the site. I hope it is actually noticeable.

Personally, this year marked my 15th year working at Young Chang Research and Development Institute (R&D – Kurzweil). Lots of things have happened since I joined the company to work on the PC3. Countless keyboards, constant evolution, this company never rests. In these last two years there have been lots of challenges not just for us, but for all the industry. Lockdowns, chip shortages, shipping delays due to transportation bottlenecks, tradeshows cancelled, but overall good keyboard sales across the industry. People still want to play keyboards and digital pianos.

We will see what 2022 has prepared for us. We are ready to adapt no matter what.

Last, remember to click that Donate button to help maintaining Ksetlist alive (to pay for hosting and security certificate). If you pay $5/year it’ll be more than enough to keep this site alive and kicking.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and I wish you a very healthy and musical 2022.
