  • Nice and versatile keyboard

    Yamaha PSR-S650Published on 06/13/15 at 06:03
    This is a keyboard that can be described as an "all-in-one". If you're still studying music or if you're a music teacher, it's a good learning tool. If you're a composer, it has lots of features that help you on the composing process. If you're a band keyboard player, it has the Registration Memory, that stores all kinds of panel configs. If you like to use softsynths and/or software sequencers like SONAR and Cubase, it has a USB to Host port and a "PC Mode" to help. I think it could also have the conventional 5-prong DIN MIDI ports if you'd like to control sound modules, but modules are being outdated anyway.
  • This is a good keyboard

    This is the succeseur PSR S550 is a good arranger keyboard when you are a beginner or amateur, it is not appropriate for a pro.

    This is a standard 5-octave keyboard, organ type, he can touch dynamics very well be removed by pressing the'' touch'' there is a pitch bend wheel, it is regrettable that there is no modulation function.

    The keyboard has an effects section, only one can be used, there is a DSP channel and no variation, there are 237 presets and each edition possibility of effects or creating other.

    This is the succeseur PSR S550 is a good arranger keyboard when you are a beginner or amateur, it is not appropriate for a pro.

    This is a standard 5-octave keyboard, organ type, he can touch dynamics very well be removed by pressing the'' touch'' there is a pitch bend wheel, it is regrettable that there is no modulation function.

    The keyboard has an effects section, only one can be used, there is a DSP channel and no variation, there are 237 presets and each edition possibility of effects or creating other.

    The connection is simple (USB. To host, USB to device, OUTPUT / headphones and expression pedal or sustain)
    We regrettra the headphones jack and output is shared, then there is no MIDI connections, but it is easily bypassed by plugging a USB / MIDI interface that permeterai connect multiple devices on the keyboard.

    There are 864 sounds including 480 xg and featured voices, 9 Mega Voices, 18 live, 22 cool, sweet 12, the piano sounds are compressed, it does not give a very good result, the strings sound a little fake'' '' or too'''' synthetic pad is good for electro and pop, but it is not suitable for film music, choirs leave a bit to be desired
    Otherwise sax are very successful, organs are not bad at all, and the drums are
    Note that the edition of sounds is not possible.
    The 181 styles are sampled, there is not much to say.
    The voice and style expansion is available, we had never seen before in this price range, the voices and styles are available in packs priced at 70 euro each, but some of them are free.

    The 16 track sequencer is present

    UTILIZATION

    The configaration is simple posibility superpser two sounds at the same time, we choose the sounds you easily chosit easily styles


    The manual is clear to the general, but some specific points, it is necessary to refer to the site

    OVERALL OPINION

    I just try the keyboard for a few hours, but it is, I even think I get it, if I try other Yamahas

    What I like the most is the ability to download packages extansions
    What I liked the least, is the lack of MIDI and multi pads

    This is a good quality / price ratio, but if you are committed to spend your afternoons path taken
