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-SX700 arranger workstation, you'll find that magical process smoother, faster, 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-SX700 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, 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
Many composers at Irvine Art & Music will tell you that a great arranger keyboard is, practically speaking, the most efficient way to realize a musical idea. And nobody understands arranger keyboards like Yamaha. The PSR-SX700’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-SX700’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, the PSR-SX700 comes packed with an arsenal of great sounds (986 Voices, 41 Drum/SFX Kits, and 480 XG Voices) to suit any genre, including exotic world music styles. The PSR-SX700 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!
Powerful production tools
The PSR-SX700 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-SX700 also 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. Bottom line: loaded with premium content and a comprehensive smart feature set, the Yamaha PSR-SX700 is designed to light up your musical ideas fast — and with total control.
