Yamaha QS300
For features I 'm not dwell on the subject see in preceding reviews ... google ...


Yes like most synths I imagine must take a minimum time to read ... also for effects etc.


In my case yes sounds frankly there are very good between another "first" mode "user" ... the synths .... elelectriques guitars "steve" "vai" "feedback" pretty good not lot of sounds that I found interesting, etc. so I will not list them all ... a critical tite the while I think about for flutes in "XG" that I have not found the top ... but probably taking time to make adjustments apply effects it can improve s ... otherwise see "pre" mode (bottle lead) .. and fashion "user" see if there is more I have it since not even a week and I have not yet peeled back I got in the complement


So I have the last few days ... and bought complement seen the price at which you can currently find at about 100 € worth it ... apparently at about "1500 €" (al age was on the franc but equivalent of this award in nine of the comments after that I have been able to read) so do not hesitate! Sequencer 16 tracks with a lot of effects and sounds good to exploit malgres that it is of 1996/97 I think ...
I just post here about the sequencer with respect to a portion of a review above
I just clarify that it is quite possible to use any sound recording contrary to what I have read in a com that says you can only use the sounds "XG" and not the others ... just in "SONG" mode select on the screen down al keys under the screen "MULTI" then "VOICES" and all the tracks 1 to 16 appear with writing "XG" on each of them, to the the keys to the right of the screen with the mouse you get the symbol "XG" and you turn the knob up to what it changes to "PRE" or "U.S." or "FX" Now it remains
Right to choose the sound you want by selecting "SRCH" at the bottom of the screen to the right with "F. .." buttons under the screen where all the sounds on the mode you have selected appear Move with the round dial. .. the name of the sound you want to press "ENTER" 2 times then "EXIT" to return to the basic al screen you can press "RECORD" and "RUN" and you play aves set track 1 with the sound you want in the "PRE" mode, "U.S.", "FX" rest now do the same for the other tracks.
It may seem complicated can be the reading but do it once and then c is easy to remember

The technical specifications are entered on the advice Previous.


The configuration and gnrale edition is simple for a yamaha synth as often in the manual is complete, the above ... nothing wrong In addition, the widescreen allows easy reading of all this.


The sounds range from the grandiose (some combis, some instruments) to the downright bad. We can dplorer there is no acoustic piano sounds REALLY convincing. But most of the synth sounds of the mode are well made, even electric guitar solo that kill (the sound and Steve Vai as if by accident;)).

Overall the sounds are good, even if it is not at a Kurzweil. Touch with and against as is unfortunately often the case on this type of product is bad, too soft. To say I play on the keyboard of my master keyboard ...
The effects are rather effective and Submitted.

In rsum sounds are so good, despite the lack of ism of certain sounds, there are sounds that will make you tripper for sure. Certainly it's not a pattern seen his age, but it is far from looking bad, sounds are good I put 9 for sound, because in terms of synth is a good rev, with varied sounds s deep, which they mix with no problem and a possibility of standard edition.


I use it for 2 months, I like the synth part and the part sequencer expander, as the opinions Previous INTERESTED prcise is less of a purely sonic level. Part sequencer arranger is honest but only XG, which is a shame because otherwise this trs nit t have a killer ... It is worth the price of its rating because it's still a good synth with trs sequencer and arranger bonus (but XG). With exprience, I do not have that choice referrer and more direct me to a K2000 as a matter of sound.

mangalore's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

my first keyboard
5 oct/61 notes
connectivity UNESCORecords
ditables sounds (but almost useless)
32 voice polyphony
wheel round off pitch / mod classic Yamaha
no publisher given (1995)


very good memories of the environment, edition of drumkits, sounds, effects, short yes correct for the config and Publishing: submenu usual manual ok


Some really nice pads: I replayed the web of "The Road To Lostwithiel" by Brian Transeau, some sort of a gimmick or other CS1X based DB50XG
recollection of a piano not too nice hands GPs
xylose and some sounds typs "acute" not bad
Bass (all) le total
Drum kits misrables: all! even remember 2 patches named "808" and "909" carrment anecdotal, almost funny. (See CS1X)
on the whole, the totality of the stamps / waveforms SUPER ROTTEN! (PSE and I my words)
filter and LFO ... misricorde like any of the "matrix" of synthesis and the PCM AWM2 whole.
The multi-purpose oddly correct and nice (reverb / phaser / flanger / delay ..)
The display (blue) with display the correct envellope ect ..
System Oprating well done at all in ergonomics
average keyboard, soft touch, but not bad compared to the Roland: inherited both of DX, SY ..
squenceur / arranger fun but not for long and frustrating fast
Pretty brown but mtalliscostaud mga heavy and yet almost all-plastok "which craind scratches
knob (flat) not bad, but "jumps" with values ​​that panic (super boring), hard buttons and noisy

Unlike the publicity of era: does the name of Tekno ..: almost impossibility of even doing something like "trance" that makes sense except perhaps with distortion and a 02R Protools an ass (and again)

j'tait entousiaste saw that it was my first "synth" that I knew nothing at all and especially my first contact with a Yamaha c'tait fact, but must be honest: even in one of Pot-selling super state 50 the end of nostalgia I Rasht not! short, go your way, especially if you like real synths ....
Since I had some other keyboards latest issue recently and I have a real DX7 2D, is not 16 shares and 32 voice poly, but its level is not the same DEFINITIONS!


gard 2 years (form) and because I am attached to my tools, but sold without any regret.
no, premre BCAN
as: multi-purpose
minimum: the sounds "squeaker squeaker," the squenceur "spcial migraine / colr crisis"
bought the 1500 era: not carrment, super bad report Klitprix!

ps: then when I still think only a few feet of the store, was a civil-sale here must truffle JX, Juno Koblo, Elka ect and I eyeing for the same price on a super Jupiter8 clean rvis attracted me .... I still hurt.
