Product Description

Yamaha PSR-S950

Just play to experience incredibly realistic and expressive sound
Acoustic instrument articulations, nuances and dynamics are challenging to reproduce. As the world's largest musical instrument manufacturer, Yamaha has perfected both the science and art of this process to bring you the most sophisticated, musical-sounding and easy-to-play instrument Voices.

Super Articulation (SA) voices
Super Articulation voices reproduce the performance characteristics of acoustic instruments so authentically, you'll feel as if you're playing the real thing. Best of all, SA voices intelligently add the right expressive nuances to your performance without having to learn complicated control techniques - just play!

Mega Voice style technology
Mega Voices feature various playing techniques and performance sounds like guitar and bass finger slides, brass falls, vocal effects, etc. When used in Styles, Mega Voices provide some of the most realistic sounding and dynamic accompaniments.

Powerful, pro-quality accompaniment available at the touch of a button
Playing a style is like being the conductor of a band that always plays the chords and arrangements you tell them to play.

The PSR-S950 has a huge collection of 408 built-in dynamic styles.
Yamaha styles are created by the world's best programmers and mixed by professional studio engineers to ensure unparalleled quality.

Audio Styles
Audio Styles take one step further by adding an audio recording of studio drummers, percussionists and percussion ensembles playing in various studios around the world. This adds the natural feel, ambience and warmth to the drum and percussion parts of the style, giving your performance greater expressive potential. Yamaha Time Stretch Technology allows the audio to follow your tempo changes without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync.

Guitar-Enhanced Styles with Mega Voices
Guitar-Enhanced Styles not only reproduce the sound of guitar playing, they reproduce the actual chord voicings used by guitar players. This adds to the overall realism of the style.

Vocal features create new levels of entertainment and productivity
Whether you sing for fun, enjoy karaoke or are a singer/songwriter, the PSR-S950 provides everything you need to perform or write. Just plug in your mic and sing!

Vocal Cancel
A powerful Vocal Cancel function effectively cancels or suppresses signals like vocals and solos that exist in the centre mix of an audio file, allowing you to make your own “minus one” track and sing “karaoke” style with just instrumental backing.

Microphone input and Vocal Harmony2
The PSR-S950’s microphone input lets you connect a microphone and sing along with your keyboard performance, song or audio file playback.

With Vocal Harmony, you can sing along with three of your own virtual background vocalists. Vocal Harmony2 takes that a step further with new pitch recognition and stability controls. A convenient real-time Mic Level indicator is included in the main display, and a new intuitive graphic user interface makes it easy to experiment with your own mic settings, effects and harmony types. To get you started, PSR-S950 includes 44 exciting Vocal Harmony presets, including male, voices, female voices and sound effect settings.

Score, Lyrics and Text display
The large LCD display can show lyrics, music notation or text. You can even display this information on an external monitor.

Lyrics
Yamaha’s renowned audio and DSP technology provides great live and recorded sound

In music production, the key to creating great sound is in the way the song is mixed. The mixing console lets you mix your music like a studio engineer, including balance, panning and professional studio Digital Signal Processing (DSP) borrowed from Yamaha’s renowned professional recording and live sound products.
Real Distortion

Real Distortion effects are based on digital models of classic guitar amplifiers from the 1960's and 1970's. There are also digital models of legendary analog guitar effect pedals. The result meticulously reproduces the frequencies and dynamics of real distortion guitar sounds.

New speakers and speaker enclosures
A larger speaker enclosure gives the PSR-S950 a full, powerful sound with deep lows and clear highs.

Digital amplifier

The PSR-S950 features a Yamaha manufactured digital amplifier with a superb signal to noise ratio. Because of its fully digital, highly efficient design, the amp delivers high performance while significantly reducing energy consumption.
Experience the new, versatile high performance audio engine

The PSR-S950 is capable of playing back and recording audio files. It also has a number of audio manipulation features you can use to create “karaoke” style “minus one” tracks in the key and tempo of your choice.

MP3 playback

Time Stretch and Pitch shift

Left : Time Stretch, Right : Pitch shift

Not all singing voices have the same range. The PSR-S950 can put your favourite song in the key of your choice with a powerful pitch shift feature that lets you change the key without changing the tempo. If you do want to change the tempo, you can use the time stretch feature to slow down or speed up the tempo without changing the pitch.
Audio Link Multi Pad

Audio Link Multi Pad function lets you link your own audio files (sound effects, vocal phrases, and so on), and trigger them from the Pads as you perform.

Record your songs and performances as high-quality, uncompressed WAV files to share online or burn to a CD. Connect a microphone or guitar to the instrument and enjoy recording a guitar and keyboard performance together, or record your singing along with song playback.
