Yamaha PSR-SX900

1500 - 2000 euros | 2100 - 2600 dollarsYAMAHA

Music offers unlimited possibilities, and the PSR-SX is equipped to support your adventures to the boundaries of creativity. With a completely redesigned user interface, new assignable functions, joystick and Live Controllers, you can tailor the instruments functions and sound, wherever your musical journeys take you.

Joystick adds a new dynamic to your performance with a truly unique flavour.

The joystick offers intuitive pitch and modulation control. Now you can play rapid trills, dynamic pitch bends, and finely-nuanced modulation—all from a single, easily-configured controller.

Expansive Soundfield Speakers

Polypropylene diaphragm with excellent response provides crisp, high-quality tone, while a new diaphragm structure delivers balanced sound throughout a broad listening area.

Assignable Function

While performing, you often need to act fast to access certain features. Choose from a range of functions to assign to one of six panel buttons, or to the Live Control knobs, pedals or the Home Shortcut menu, and then instantly recall your desired function with a single touch.

New Keyboard Action - FSB Keyboard

FSB Keyboard offers remarkable playability thanks to its heavier initial key resistance and greater key travel. The refined keyboard structure, with an adjusted fulcrum, allows you to play comfortably even on the backs of the keys whilst upgraded components suppress horizontal key movement.

High Quality Output
The audio output of the PSR-SX has been completely overhauled with focus on delivering the highest quality sound from your keyboard. The new Digital Audio Converter (DAC) provides high quality defined sound across a wide frequency range, ensuring the PSR-SX always cuts through the mix.

Sub Output
PSR-SX900 features four sub line-out connections that you can use to adapt your sound to various situations. Try routing bass through a separate subwoofer for a fuller, more powerful bottom end, or send parts and drum instruments to an external console to further shape your sound.

Style Section Reset

When playing Styles, easily jump to the beginning of the bar by pressing the [RESET/TAP TEMPO] button. A valuable feature for accompanying singers or performing music with varying time signatures.

Authentic Voices

The PSR-SX has a comprehensive and sonically stunning set of authentic Voices, and gives you the tools to play these Voices more naturally and with greater expressiveness. PSR-SX900 features a diverse range of contents, starting from 1,393 instrument sound and more. The sound of the new drums, derived from the Revo! Drums of Genos bring new levels of authenticity to your performance.

Keyboard Parts

There are four keyboard parts for your manual performance: LEFT, RIGHT 1, RIGHT 2 and RIGHT 3, and each part has one Voice. You can combine these parts by using the PART ON/OFF buttons to create luscious instrument textures and convenient performance combinations.

Styles

Accompaniment and rhythmic backing patterns (called ”Styles”) covering a wide range of musical genres, including pop, jazz, and many more, lets you single-handedly recreate the sound of a full band or orchestra.

Applying Effects to the Microphone Sound

You can automatically apply various Vocal Harmony effects to your voice as you sing, or you can use Synth Vocoder to graft the unique characteristics of your voice onto synthesizer and other sounds., for unusual machine‐like or robotic effects, as well as unique choir sounds, which you can control with your own singing and playing.

Add some flavor to your performance (Multi Pads)

The Multi Pads can be used to play a number of short pre-recorded rhythmic and melodic sequences and loops that allow you to add impact and variety to your keyboard performance.

Audio Link Multi Pad

Multi Pads not only work with MIDI data, but also allow you to create unique, new pad content with your own audio (WAV) data for playing back during your performance.

Touch Screen/GUI

The 7” touch display and new graphic user interface provide for instinctive control over the instruments powerful features.

Style Assembly

Styles are made up of many instrument Parts, such as drums, bass, guitar, piano etc. In Style Assembly it’s easy to explore, audition and combine Parts from any Style to create your own personal accompaniments.

Chord Looper

The Chord Looper lets you record a chord sequence and play it back, freeing your left hand from playing chords and providing new ways to enhance your performance.

Since the chords play back in a loop, you don’t need to repeat the chord pattern manually anymore—letting you focus on your performance and other operations.

Playlist and Registration Memory
Playlist is the new convenient way to quickly setup the instrument. Organize Registration Memories into convenient Playlists for instant recall during performance. Playlist makes it easy to manage and call up your songs and the related settings, no matter how large your repertoire.
