DoWn's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The master keyboard gratos"

Yamaha PSS-780
It is a synthetic late 80's / early 90's who has a 5 octave keyboard

- 2 HP
- 2 line outputs
- 2 MIDI I / O


I will not dwell on the use and editing sounds because I use as a master keyboard PM ...

Because yes, that old synth that does not look with its quaint look very "plastic - 80" implements a complete midi interface that allows you to control all my VST instruments in Cubase.

Note that for this I had to buy a midi / usb interface, namely a edirol um-1S.

One branch, we play: difficult to do less simple.


I have for many years, blackjack recovered (thank you to my dear and loving who bought it new), I needed a MIDI keyboard, that it was free, it's perfect.

He lacked the power supply but it works with a power supply of Freebox V4 that was lying at home for a free service

Only notable defect, the keys are not sensitive to velocity.

Note, after all these years, it still works great!

Use very simple and very intuitive trs.
Editing sounds a little space at first glance, but enuiste was going alone.
The effects are also simple to use trs.
Section with these two digital synthtiseur oprateurs Retailer is clearly in the use of the keyboard itself.


For the era I think it's a good keyboard arranger trs trs a good quality sound (the synthse FM made the reputable Yamaha).

Honntement this keyboard trs trs aging well! correct the color of the buttons are a bit kitsch, but the era .....

Arranger keyboard 5 octaves, with amplification Systm Intgr squenceur small, drum pads pcm, possibility to record your own pace battery, compatible noon intgre synth function, audio outputs, pitch wheel ... for more technical data, see below.


The configuration is generally simple. is an excellent machine for beginners trs intuitive, no need for manual although this one makes a short introduction to the sound synthse plutt well.
fm factory sounds are dpasss price but quality report for the era and leaning a little on the synthse, we can get out innatendus frankly sounds nice.
Power over ADAPTT sector, or batteries.


C'tait my first purchase to 1989. I kept 4 years and have a friend who sold beginners. I have good memories, although some aspects such as pads m'agaaient weak battery, I had to change them and last but not least the piano keys too small.
the era, I went out and about often, and although m'quipant progressively more powerful stuff, I took her everywhere with me.
