Finally! It sounds great! And at 4:13, you can hear a children's choir, just like on the Tyros 5. I hope it has even more choir sounds.

Can't wait for it to be in stores so I can try it!

Thank you, Donny!

P.S. I think choosing an arranger keyboard just became harder. smile

They added the effects section of the T5 which is reallly high quallity

Love the deejay section and arpeggiator for the right hand and the two knobs... Might finally allow to play and create some 21st century dance music on stage... Pretty sure we will also see this in the Tyros 5 replacement...

Yet still missing sa2 voices, organ world, ensemble voices...

It would be fair if they pit a price on the s970 comparable to the MOXF6... As production costs are probably under $150 and development costs of this keyboard that has nothing new to offer is allready payed by other instruments..

Nice seeing some of the newer Tyros 5 features filtering down to these new arrangers.

Those new live controls and arpeggiator, not found on the Tyros 5, look very useful for dance and more contemporary type music. Perhaps working its way to the Tyros 6 model.

Looking forward to the dozen or so brand new S970 styles I can eventually add to my Tyros 5. Still don't understand why Yamaha limits expansion memory size, but limited or improved expansion is better than no expansion at all. Let's hope the most of the YEM issues were ironed out from the Tyros 5. Still a very good mid range arranger.

Looks like a useful update! ...especially if you don't have a 950 and like Yammies. Love those lead guitar sounds.

The guitars and epianos and drums are those things that probably get the most from the hugely improved efects section...
