Yamaha has upgraded its range of PSR-S arranger keyboards with the introduction of the PSR-S750 and PSR-S950 models.
They feature Super Articulation Voices, more performance styles and a number of advanced connectivity options that offer possibilities previously only found on higher-end Yamaha instruments such as the Tyros4.
The PSR-S950 arranger keyboard debuts Audio Style technology, bringing the realism, nuance and character of live drums and percussion to Styles. Each Audio Style adds a track of tempo-synchronised audio from drummers and percussionists around the world. It also features Vocal Harmony 2, a tool that augments singers’ vocals with 3-part harmonies and effects. Additionally, the color screen on the S950 makes the interface clearer and easier to read, while a brushed metal data entry wheel allows for simpler programming.
Both the PSR-S950 and PSR-S750 models feature expressive Super Articulation Voices and offer “Real Distortion” DSP, which adds high-quality distortion and overdrive effects to instrument Voices like guitar and electric piano. The keyboards allow for the addition of Voices and Styles by loading Yamaha’s ever-growing library of Voice and Style Expansions into the 64MB FlashROM. Players can also assign and trigger WAV audio with Yamaha’s new Audio Link Multi-Pads, and a re-designed speaker box has extended lows along with a highly efficient digital amplifier and digital EQ to perfectly tailor the overall sound.
Full specifications will follow shortly. The PSR-S750 (MSRP: $1,499) and the PSR-S950 (MSRP: $2,499) are available now.
