Availability:  


A world-class keyboard that is able to expand and adapt with your needs.

The Yamaha PSR-S950 is packed with amazing Voices, Styles and comprehensive features to help you create, arrange, perform and record your music in any genre. Yamaha's cutting-edge sound innovation takes it all a step further with Audio Styles, a function that gives your performance greater expressive potential by adding real audio drum and percussion parts to Yamaha’s Guitar Enhanced Style engine. Additionally, the built-in FlashROM lets you load new Voices and Style Expansions (VSE) from around the world.

Realistic, expressive sound
Acoustic instrument-specific articulations, nuances and dynamics are challenging to reproduce. As one of the world's largest musical instrument manufacturers, Yamaha has long perfected both the science and art of this process to bring you the sophisticated, musical-sounding and easy-to-play instrument Voices. The PSR-S950's 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 just the right expressive nuances to your performance without having to learn a bunch of tricks...just play. It's 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 you've ever heard from a digital keyboard. You'd swear it ws the real thing.

Do it with "Styles"
The PSR-S950's Audio Styles take it one step further by adding an audio recording of studio drummers, percussionists and percussion ensembles playing in various recording studios from 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. The 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.

Sing, Sing a Song
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 your heart out. The PSR-S950 has a A powerful Vocal Cancel function that effectively cancels or suppresses signals like vocals and solos that exist in the center of an audio file, allowing you to make your own “minus one” track and sing “karaoke” style with just instrumental backing.

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 realtime 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, female Voices, SFX settings.

The large LCD display on the PSR_S950 can show lyric, music notation or text. You can even display this information on an external monitor.

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 on this arranger keybard 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
The Real Distortion effects on the PSR-S950 are based on digital models of classic guitar amplifiers from the 1960s and 1970s. There are also digital models of legendary analog guitar effect pedals. The result meticulously reproduces the frequencies and dynamics of real distortion guitar sounds.

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.

Time Stretch and Pitch Shift
Not all singing voices have the same range. The PSR-S950 can put your favorite 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.

    We have worn out our PSR S900 keyboard and it is now our spare keyboard. (It is still working fine) We purchased the PSR S950 a couple weeks ago and have been using it on our gigs. We go out once or twice a day and have always been real happy with Yamaha. So far the new keyboard is great and it has been fairly easy to transfer our MIDI and Style info from the other keyboard. We do also like the new changes on this keyboard. Great buy.

  • Good full service work station

    As reviewed by Mary Lou on 8/18/2014

    Just received my Yamaha PSR-S950 a week ago and am impressed with all it can do. Some of the sounds do not flow well into the next sound I choose, but over all it is a good value, and responsive to my expression in a variety of ways. With a bit of study I have found my way around its features, and have used it already to perform. As a keyboard player, composer and vocalist, it fulfills my needs, and the live sound is impressive. The vocal harmonizer is a kick...I like the break feature on the styles, and the easily accessible equalizer which allows me to mix it as I like, including my vocals through the board. Downloaded the Indian expansion pack and am enjoying this very much.
