Product Description

The Yamaha PSR-S550B is a 61 Key Arranger Workstation that gives you all the features and quality of a professional arranger you need, but for a price you can afford! That makes this arranger a great addition to any serious musician's collection. The arranger comes with 61 Full Size Touch Response Keys and 64 note polyphony, state of the art features including USB MIDI and USB storage capability, and also includes features like other arranger keyboards including: Dedicated Registration, One Touch Setting and Octave buttons on the panel, Style and Voice category buttons to get you where you want to go quickly, and full XG compatibility. Those musical styles also come with 3 introductions, 3 endings, plus 4 variations & fill-ins, and 176 styles to choose from! For added realism, this arranger offers a large selection of super-realistic Sweet!, Live!, and Cool! Voices, ethnic content including regionally unique voices and drum kits, and 774 voices and 22 drum kits that are GM and XG Compatible.

Newly-Added Features

Building on the impressive features of the PSR-S500, this enhanced edition includes a full 16-track sequencer, a style creator function, dramatically increased numbers of voices, including full XG support and ethnic voices and drum kits, high-quality sound with improved DSP, the addition of dance styles, and a professional black finish.

Sequencer

An upgrade from the 9 track sequencer of the PSR-S500, the PSR-S550B comes with a 16 track sequencer, which allows you to record one or more instrument parts at a time (15 melody and 1 chord track), which provides beautiful melodies, chord accompaniment, and rhythm parts to your music.

LCD Screen

For those wanting to see lyrics and the sheet music that accompanies an artist's song, or even your own, can now get what they want with the Backlit LCD Screen built into the PSR-S550B which displays lyrics, chords, and notation. This is a great way to learn how to read music, and since the pages scroll automatically, you don't have to worry about flipping pages to sheet music any longer!

"Review PSR S550 Or PSR S550B black. "
Sound: I played years with roland keyboards,in the past,but now 15 years later I started again,but with the S550 the kyeboard is easy to use,and for me after an long time enactive,it was great. you can start right away,it is thad easy. the keyboard come with great sound,however the psr S910 is better,but for half the prise the S550 is good. My only drawback i found,is thad the keyboard have poor usb Usage. for example,you can store 200 styles on an usb ,or 200 songs,and thads it. When you put more styles on your usb drive,it wil just skip the rest.even if you have 500 of them,the keyboard read only 200 of them. the sounds are realy good,even as the styles. you can alter abit the sounds,but it is not like an synth you can make sounds. not possible with this keyboard. however you can make styles,alter styles Two basic needs are missing,one is an tone slider wheel. the other is an break for the styles. another problem could be if you are onstage,the phone out put share the same plug as audio out. problem is you get more noise thad way,then on an dictaded line out. for the rest the keyboard work like it is,it is an great keyboard for its prise. the keyboard itself is not to bad to,it work great,and consistend, changing styles are great,you just pick one and the keyboard play it without loading it furst.believe me thad is an big plus,against other keyboard like roland,thad do not have this option. you can make your styles,it is easy,you can save them. and re use them,the best part is when you make an song,the styles is intigrated in the song.so no fussle or tinking with styles i used for an song. the keyboard is fully awhere wat style you used,just great. When you are on an mission to get an keyboard thad do not break your bank accound,then i can recoment this keyboard. it play just as good as the bigger models,however when you go higher you get more polifony sounds,and most of the time more colorful,and fuller tones. but the sound is realy good,. Feature: As sayed before this keyboard miss some importend stuff. load and save capacity is poor,internal songs are only 5 Usb song are max 200 the keyboard do not allow you to name your song after recording,it is always User song1,to user song 5 after thad the next song wil be back on user song1 Strance I never had this with roland keyboards. Ease of Use: the keyboard is as easy as 1,2,3 Sound creation is not possible,you can only change the effects,and save it as snapshot. Quality: the psr s550 is reable like al other keyboards. it have an nice black finish,however abit bruud. the speakers are very good,and the power to. However for playing onstage ,you need an external keyboard amplifier. the psr s550 is light so easely for transport. have good sound,and is very playable live or at home. Value: In short yes it is word every penny. you get an nice looking,and most importend and good performer for your money. I use the keyboard 5 monds now,I only can say it is an great product. Manufacturer Support: the people are very nice,let me try out the keyboard,and give me all the time of the world to make an disision. with good explination between other Yamaha keyboards. The Wow Factor: it is just an practical addition for my setup. I plan to buy the psr 910 at the end of the year,for its additional settings the psr s550 lack. Overall: I replace it next year or the end of the year for an psr 910s the psr s550 fill my needs for playing bace music,but later one I want to make my styles and sound,with is not possible with this keyboard. Also for the missed objects,like direct sound recording on usb,line out for stage. missing wheel on the keyboard,direct internet acces.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Not any better than a psr 550, actually."
Sound: The product sounded fine. It had a few features missing that I need. Feature: Just the product itself/ Ease of Use: Actually, I have two Yamaha psr 550 keyboards. (the older model) and I like them because of the dsp control button that controls the leslie. I do not find any difference between the s550b and the psr 550, except the old 550 has that dsp control button for slow/fast rotary speaker. I will eventually need one great keyboard that has the following; It has to have rotory speaker control built in, it will need to be 76 keys, it has to store my setups for each song I will be playing, (registration memory), so that I can quickly bring up that setting for that particular saong. It has to probably be a Yamaha, because I personally do not like the sounds of anything else. I cannot use weighted keys. I already have one of those and it sits in the closet. I need great horns, piano, organ, synth, sounds that can be mixed and or punched in and out at will. I need to split the keyboard sections up on certain tunes in order to accomodate various song parts. Seems like everyone wants to sell you a workstation. The only thing wrong with the yamaha s70xs is that it has weighted keys. I can't have that. So, I'm playing on this little 550 until prices take a dive. I'll probably end up with the xf7, but I'm in no rush... Quality: yes Value: not really, but that's just me. Manufacturer Support: Yamaha is not that easy to reach for parts, The Wow Factor: It looks good Overall: already sent it back
Style of Music: variety
