Write, Record, and Perform Like a Pro
Every great song starts off as an idea — a simple melody or rhythm that you flesh out with accompaniment and arrange into a finished piece. With a Yamaha PSR-SX900 arranger workstation, you'll find that magical process smoother and more intuitive than ever. Loaded with amazing instrument Voices and exciting Accompaniment Styles, creating rich music beds and fully developed songs with the PSR-SX900 is as simple as playing a few chords on the silky 61-note keybed. The onboard Joystick Controller lets you achieve the wide variety of pitch and modulation combinations presented by many different world music styles. Add in hundreds of effects options to chose from, assignable real-time controls, built-in Bluetooth, and a full-color 7" LCD touchscreen for easy navigation, and you're just starting to get the picture of what this awesome arranger has in store.
Your backing band awaits
Composers at Irvine Art & Music will tell you that a solid arranger keyboard is, practically speaking, the most efficient way to realize a musical idea. And nobody understands arranger keyboards like Yamaha. The PSR-SX900's Accompaniment Styles add an instant backing band to your performances while you maintain control over the chord changes and arrangement. You can quickly audition different hundreds of Styles, instantly swap out instruments, and record your arrangements on the PSR-SX900's 16-track song recorder/player or capture performances directly on a USB thumb drive.
Packed with premium content
Pre-loaded with Yamaha's premium Voice and Style content from their flagship Genos workstation, the PSR-SX900 comes packed with an arsenal of great sounds (1337 Voices, 56 Drum/SFX Kits, and 480 XG Voices) to suit any genre, including exotic world music styles. The PSR-SX900 also features a guitar/mic input, USB audio recording, and sample playback via flexible Multi-Pads. And the built-in MP3 lyrics player lets you display lyrics from MP3 song files on the keyboard’s sharp, bright, color LCD — perfect for karaoke! The PSR-SX900 can even connect to an external display via an optional USB display adapter for the ultimate in audience participation.
The real deal
The PSR-SX900 provides a range of powerful production tools. Vocal Cancel lets you effectively remove the vocal or lead instrument from an audio song file to create minus-one tracks for practice or karaoke-style performances. The PSR-SX900 offers advanced, convenient audio playback and processing functions that include Time Stretch — which lets you slow down or speed up an audio file without changing pitch — and Pitch Shift, which lets you change the pitch without altering the time. The PSR-SX900 also supports Audio Styles that include rhythm tracks played by actual musicians, so the PSR-SX900 isn’t emulating the real thing — it's the real deal! And for karaoke, the PSR-SX900's professional-quality background singers put you center stage. Sing the song and Yamaha's state-of-the-art VH2 (Vocal Harmony 2) chip does the rest! Bottom line: Loaded with premium content and a comprehensive smart feature set, the Yamaha PSR-SX900 is designed to light up your musical ideas fast — and with total control.
