Regardless of your favourite genre or style, the instrument will be able to provide you with everything you need for a truly breathtaking performance. Featuring voices and styles recorded by real musicians, a massive range of effects, controls and components taken from the legendary Tyros 5, here at Normans we are sure Yamaha PSRS970 will not fail to impress you and will provide hours of musical enjoyment and creativity.
Real effects and Vocal Harmony function
A feature previously only seen on the industry standard Tyros 5 keyboard is now available at a much lower price as part of your Yamaha PSRS970. The Real effects allow you to apply authentic, natural sounding effects to your selected instruments and make them come to life! Particularly, if you are using guitar voices on your keyboard, the effects function will let you choose from a variety of amps, adjust the tone as you like and create your unique sound - it is extremely easy to access and control effects on the keyboard’s large LCD screen. If you are a vocalist or looking to accompany another singer, you can now plug in a microphone directly into your PSRS970 and add effects through the built-in Vocal Harmony 2 function. This allows you to control the pitch, level and number of harmonies added, as well as introduce various effects to the vocals. Not only will the mic input enhance your complement, with Vocal Harmony you can add another dimension to your sound – even if you are not singing, you can modify your voice to add exciting effects and unique flavours to your performance.
Huge range of styles and voices with expansion opportunities
There are a whopping number of 1510 voices included on board of your PSRS970 which open up a range of exciting creative opportunities and sound combinations. The realistic, high quality sounds include Organ Flutes and Super Articulation voices from the Tyros series that provide exceptional realism, as if you were performing with live musicians. 450 preset accompaniments include Audio Styles which are recorded by professional session musicians as audio tracks, Free Play styles which have no percussion beat allowing you to play freely and many more realistic accompaniments across a variety of genres. However, if you still want more from your keyboard, there is an array of Expansion Packs available on Yamaha Music Soft website where you can download additional styles and voices from all over the world. Yamaha Expansion Manager will help you organise all the components and you can even create a list of your personal favourites to use the keyboard’s 512MB memory more efficiently. The Expansion Manager also lets you create your own voice and drum kits to add your unique sound to the performance. There are no limits to your creativity with PSRS970!
Perform like a professional with real-time, assignable controls
Yamaha PSRS970 keyboard is the ultimate instrument for live performances and will help you put on truly dynamic, captivating shows. There are two assignable live controllers, a modulation wheel, pitch bend and two assignable foot pedal inputs giving you complete control over your voices, effects and styles as well as other functions. Using Multi Pads, you can trigger external audio from the keyboard or your personal files, for example, you could introduce vocal melodies, surprising riffs and more as you perform. Brand new DJ Styles include preset chord progressions that take care of your left hand part so you can create exciting melodies and trigger other functions with ease as both of your hands will be free to do just that. Arpeggiator, included in the PSRS970 is a great way to add more dynamics and layers for a rich, multi-dimensional performance every time.
