PSR-S950 Arranger Workstation Keyboard by Yamaha
The new PSR-S950 arranger workstation keyboard by Yamaha is the new flagship of the PSR range, packed with a vast array of styles, voices and cutting edge features so you can record or perform your music with any genre. The new and overhauled design gives a professional appearance with the enhanced layout making it even easier to enjoy the full set of the keyboards features. But what makes this PSR stand up from the rest is it effectively blurs the line between digital and acoustic sound because of the sheer quality of sound you can produce or record.
Super Articulation and Mega Voice Technology are included as well the acoustic instruments which have performance quality sound, and even the details sounds created through specific technique. A great example would be the bass and guitar fret board slide, or a brass fall. The Vocal Harmony 2 adds for vocal support allowing for the ultimate in creative equipment to mould your musical perspective, even the smallest of nuances can be captured with the PSR-S950.
Yamaha Audio and DSP technology on the PSR-S950 allows you to mix and record your music with the ability to pan, balance and digitally process the signals you are recording. You can record your files in the WAV format to ensure that it is of the highest quality. And on top of this the Yamaha Real Distortion plug-in emulates 1960s and 1970s guitar amplifiers and pedals, showing the detail and care taken in creating a truly authentic sound. The inbuilt speakers give a complete and commanding sound through the 15W amplifiers.
The new demo function gives examples of the new features, voices and songs, and with the i-MXI MIDI interface you can connect to an iPhone, iPod and iPad. But what sets the PSR-S950 takes realism to a new level with the Audio Styles feature; not only can you create greater performance, but you have the potential for far superior expression through the addition of true audio drum and percussion sections to Yamaha’s Guitar Enhanced Style engine.
The PSR range also has new expansion contents (VSE) provided by Yamaha to take advantage of the ever increasing selection of regional, ethnic and traditional voices and styles.
