Yamaha S08
See further notice (kwzt01)


A simple setup ... we have activities in hand


I generally agree with the advice of kwzt01, but I would add that the piano is still disappointing given the quality of the rest (as if Yamaha did not want to put everything in the keyboard make room for their models of digital pianos on stage, like p80, 90.120 ...?!?!...)


I use it for about 6 months and with pleasure ("It fulfills its mission")
like least: the piano, which, without being totally wrong, is too sharp and hollow in the midrange.
I love using rhodes sounds, very enjoyable to play and live a good effect.
The quality / price seems right (about € 1000)

Yamaha S08
EXCELLENT synth keyboard with 88 keys Balanced Hammer Effect
16 multitimbral, 64 polyphony, 128 presets, 128 + users 493 XG voices, 17 reverbs, 17 chorus and 54 variations.

CD comes with a Mac / PC including an editor / library's nice enough to manipulate easily the bte, and a digital audio squenceur of good quality (SQ01)

My only regret the absence of PLG compatible connectors.


The screen is simple and readable trs (large characters, that changes a bit).
The manual is well done and in a few minutes, we understand the operation of the device.
The edition is idalie sounds with the software Mac / PC included.


The 256 sounds Preset and User banks from the S80 are excellent, especially the electric pianos that made me crack the test.

As against the bank is quite XG/GM2 dcevante, but hey that's not why I bought this synth. We must consider that it is a + in the machine, useful for the compatibility of midifiles.


J'tais date the party to buy a Yamaha S80 and in the end I returned home with an S08.
On the one hand, this synth possde many of the sounds that have made the most reputable and the S80, Balanced Hammer Effect keyboard found in particular on the S90 and the Pianos of SERIES numriques PF has made all the diffrence in my choice.

Finally, a perfect master keyboard with an excellent touch, sounds from the Russian particulirement S80 trs a nice price (1190).
