Intended for both beginners and experimented players, the three PSR-S670, PSR-S770 and PSR-S970 arranger keyboards feature 10 DJ Styles, which are pre-programmed chord progressions that gives the player the ability to play melodic phrases, trigger additional audio samples from the new multipads and use the live controllers and built-in arpeggiator along with these melodic styles.

The PSR-S670 features a 61 Organ-type keyboard (5 octaves) with 5 responses, pitch bend and modulation wheels, a 4.3” LCD display (320 x 240), 2 assignable multifunction controllers (filter, envelope, arpeggios, track mute or retrigger), an audio recorder and player (80 minutes/song max in 16-bit / 44.1 kHz stereo WAV format), multi-pads with Audio Link feature, a 16-track sequencer with a Style Creator and a wireless connection for iOS devices (via optional adapter). 2x 15W speakers and a 32 MB memory for Voice and Style expansion packs are also included and the Expansion Manager software (v.2.3 and later) can be used to create ensembles featuring the content from different packs or even your own sounds created from audio samples.
