when the PSR3000 came out on the market 3 years ago I told all of you here that it was so close to the Tyros keyboard that I thought the sale of Tyros was all but over. I even said this to my friends at Yamaha and they agreed with me.......
Now, 3 years later, the PSRS900 will do the same thing to the tyros 2 sales.
This new keyboard is a great alternative to buying a $3500.00 Tyros2 for $1595.00.
I spent an hour playing around. I listened to it's sounds, styles and plugged in a 1GB thumb drive and recorded a standard midi file with me singing through the vocal harmonizer. The results sounding just the same as it sounded live. It was so easy to do.
If you loved the PSR3000, this will not dissapoint you at all. The familiarity with the layout will make you feel right at home, but the addition of so many new sounds and styles will delight you.
For those that think this should of had 76 keys instead of 61 you will not be satisfied. But the majority of keyboards being sold still have 61 keys. The internal speakers sound great and the build quality looks like it should last for many years. The screen is brighter and easier to see.
If you were expecting a brand new keyboard, you might be disappointed, but if you are looking for an all in one workstation with super articulation sounds and some great new features such as hard disk recording, I think you will be quite happy !
