Get Creative with Yamaha's Top-of-the-Line PSR Arranger Synth!

The Yamaha PSR-S970 Arranger Workstation keyboard bridges the gap between the professional musician and the casual hobbyist. For the keyboardist who's new to synth workstations, this flagship of the PSR line offers hundreds of easy-to-use auto-accompaniment Styles that effortlessly back up your playing with rhythm parts, bass, and more -- making you sound like a full band with very little effort.

For the seasoned pro looking to add richness to their compositions, the S970 has a deep sound set of expressive voices, a microphone input and a stunning vocal harmony engine. The PSR-S970 is a step up from the PSR-S770, with its superior soundset, higher-quality speakers and much more. The PSR-S970 is also now expandable up to 512MB with Yamaha's VSE Voice and Style Expansion packs.

And no matter what your experience level, you'll love the ability to record and play back full-quality WAV audio or MP3 files -- and even record yourself directly to a USB thumb drive.

A Well-Stocked Sound Set

With nearly 1500 sounds -- including expressive Super Articulation patches -- you will have inspiration at your fingertips. With the S970, you get sensational sounds including the Yamaha staple grand pianos, rich orchestral pads, chugging synths, a wide selection of percussion from around the world, and even Yamaha's endlessly customizable Organ Flutes.

Super Articulation voices lend an uncanny realism to acoustic instruments -- capturing articulations like note bends, trills, fall-offs, and staccato arpeggios during performance. Play a guitar sound and you'll hear authentic open and muted strings, slides, strums, and body noises. Dial in distortion effects based on digital models of classic guitar amps and effects pedals. All of the voices you hear sound real because they are real -- you're actually playing a sound that was sampled from a real instrument. For even more possibilities, you can download more sounds with Yamaha's Voice and Style Expansion packs.

Audio Styles: More than just MIDI

Become the conductor of your own band. Your PSR-S970 comes loaded with 450 wide-ranging Styles to fit your favorite kinds of music. Select a Style like 60'sGuitarPop, JazzClub, or Sci-FiMarch to instantly call up layers of sounds and rhythms that support the music you have in mind. Then conduct your virtual band with the S970's range of dedicated buttons. The PSR-S970 arranger includes 40+ cutting-edge Audio Styles, with live, time-stretchable recordings of audio drum and percussion ensembles from around the world -- plus Yamaha's Guitar-Enhanced Styles, which reproduce chord voicings used by guitarists to add more realism to your playing.

Record Vocals, Guitar, and More

The PSR-S970 wouldn't be a workstation without a flexible MIDI sequencer and audio recorder. You can record your compositions in real time, or one step at a time with the 16-track sequencer. Plug in a microphone or guitar and record audio along with your sequence, using Vocal Harmony 2 to fill in 3-part harmony along with your voice.

Of course, the PSR-S970 gives you access to a wealth of vocal processing, like reverb, chorus, and even a Vocoder for that ever-popular "robot" effect. With Pitch Shift, you can put the track in a key that you're comfortable singing in, without changing the tempo. Are you ready to share your music with the world? Plug in a USB stick and record your sequenced compositions as .WAV audio, directly to USB memory -- or record your live playing or singing with MP3 files on the USB stick. The PSR-S970 is your personal production studio.

Karaoke Night, Anyone?

The Vocal Cancel function lets you take the vocal track away from the audio file you want to play, giving you the ability to sing your favorite songs karaoke-style. With the S970's big, bright color screen, you see song lyrics and music notation as the song plays. But sometimes you need an even bigger display. That's why there's a convenient RCA video out port, so you can plug in a bigger screen.
