Yamaha PSR-SX900 Digital Arranger Keyboard
Yamaha PSR-SX900 Digital Keyboard
When it comes to setting new benchmarks in high-quality digital sound, design and playing enjoyment, the new PSR-SX700 and PSR-SX900 are hard to beat. As the next generation of the highly popular PSR-S series, both models have been meticulously crafted to maximise playing, performance and enjoyment. The result: a truly unique experience that sets any musician’s imagination free.
Songwriting and composition have never been easier because the PSR-SX comes with a whole host of styles to choose from. These rhythmic patterns span numerous musical genres, making them an ideal accompaniment and inspiration for all your musical compilations. This, combined with a vast range of expressive sounds, makes the PSR-SX your ultimate musical partner.
PSR-SX includes a comprehensive and sonically stunning set of authentic voices. Moreover, the list of exciting tools to choose from means you can play each of them with greater power and expressiveness. What‘s more, the sound of the new drums in the PSR-SX900 (derived from the Revo! Drums of Genos) bring new levels of authenticity to your performance. Both the PSR-SX700 and PSR-SX900 consist of four keyboard parts for optimal manual performance: LEFT, RIGHT 1, RIGHT 2 and RIGHT 3. By combining these, you can create rich instrumental textures while enjoying convenient performance combinations.
The Chord Looper lets you record a chord sequence and immediately play it back. That frees up your left hand from playing chords, thus providing new ways to enhance your performance. Because the chords play back in a loop, you don’t need to manually repeat the chord pattern anymore. That means you can focus on your playing and performance.

I was loathe to give up my PSR730, bought new in the 90's, and pass it on to a relative as my small converted bard has little storage room and why keep it if I'm moving up in quality. So, so glad I decided to stick with Yamaha. I looked at other makers but I know the 'language' of Yamaha. As usual reviewers knock Yamaha's piano voices but if you know your way around the settings these can become very acceptable. The PSR730 educates very much every aspect where dsp is concerned but the PSR-SX 900 is a completely new ball game . . .this thing is massive, limitless. At aged 73 years I decided on a new adventure -so I'm not some young head banging thing in a boy band - and boy oh boy is this an adventure. This keyboard is so clever, so well thought out, and the sounds are totally mindblowing. However, it is a professional board requiring a lot of sorting, setting up . . .and I love this part. Using every aspect of the keyboard creating the perfect responses for me is part of this adventure. Can be a bit frustrating at the start but when you hear the sounds a little success brings you know you made the right choice. The sound imaging is forward from the keyboard and I have two powered Yamaha speakers 45 degrees right and left coming back at me so with complete control over voice positioning seventh heaven would be the appropriate description. This keyboard cannot disappoint so if there is a problem . . . it's coming from you. Every new experience starts with confusion so even if you are a complete newby to Yamaha keyboards at this level just take your time, it will come, be patient . . .it will be worth it.
Having bought and used Yamaha keyboards for more years than I can remember I knew this latest one would be something special and so it is, 100% brilliant.
