clap keys clap

Honestly I like the new bigger display,....and perhaps some of the new styles which hopefully will play on the S950 also? Arps vs multipads? big deal, I'll have to actually play one to make a better opinion.Other then that not much to get excited about yet vs my S950?

Mike, just another great example of how wonderful an arranger keyboard can sound in the hands of a highly skilled player. Lets be honest, any keyboard sounds only as good as the person that's playing it, and as long as that person has taken the time to explore all of the options offered by the operating system. Without that knowledge and skill, none of them sound very professional.

Now, if I were not headed rapidly toward retirement, I would seriously consider a new S-970, but that ain't gonna happen, at least not for the foreseeable future. I'll stick with my trusty S-950, which does all that and then some.

Thanks for the links, Mike,

Gary cool

Tony, it has been my experience over the years that most of the Yamaha arranger keyboards sound damned good OOTB. Don Mason never touched the EQs more than a smidgeon and said they sounded best when left in the flat position. I tuned a little, but not much to get really great sounds out of the S-950.

I never got a reply from Michael Vonken about whether or not the keyboards he demoed were specially tuned for demoing, but my PR buddy at Yamaha said he didn't think that anyone touched them prior to the demos other than to learn the intricacies of the OS and features - that was about it.

I suspect that what you're hearing is OOTB - nothing more, nothing less.

All the best,

Gary cool

My only beef with all my Yamaha's OOTB is the default reverb on the mic @ 40. Waaaaay tooo much reverb. I usually reset it to under 20.
