Overview

Part of the new generation of Yamaha Arranger Keyboards, the PSR-S970 features a new architecture, new Voices and Styles, and a brand new DJ section. Synthesizer vocoder functions, a vocal harmonizer, external display capacity and world music accompaniment styles are just a few of the features that define the PSR-S970.

Yamaha understands that one of the missions of an arranger instrument is an exciting live performance capacity. It is equipped to shine in virtually any imaginable music idiom, whether you like to play full orchestrations of jazz standards, exciting renditions of contemporary popular music, or even the new hip-hop and R&B. Enjoy authentic acoustic sounds at your fingertips -- play pianos, saxophones and other instruments all with breath-taking reality. Also, explore the powerful synthesizer sounds that boast incredible sonic texture and versatility for electronic music of all types.

Powerful features for live performance
The PSR-S970 is a features-rich arranger keyboard with great control features including a modulation wheel and two assignable foot pedal inputs, ensuring total control over voices, styles, effects and other functions during live performance. DJ Styles are included, featuring a collection of chord progressions that eliminate the need for continuous chord changes with the left hand. When you have both hands free to play melody lines, you can use the Live Controllers, or even trigger additional external audio with the Multi Pads to add a unique flair to your performance.

Real effects
The PSR-S970 features the Real Distortion and Real Reverb effects from the Tyros 5, delivering authentic, natural sound unparalleled in its class. Now your electric guitar timbres will be convincing and effective, and your reflections emulation will be vast and effective. Effortlessly add and edit effects parameters via an attractive, intuitive interface that gives you the feeling of controlling conventional effects and amplifiers in real time.

VCM effects
The PSR-S970 has Yamaha's Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology that simulates the effects of phaser, Wah, compressors, and phasers at circuit level. Again, these effects are ideal for guitar processing, but they are equally at home on common keyboard timbres.

Play with the atmosphere of real sound
Bring your performances to life with Audio Styles, featuring high quality percussion ensembles and drums, all recorded by world-class musicians in studios around the globe. Audio Styles add natural feel and warmth to any rhythm track for greater expressive potential than ever before.

Let your music take you to new places
Voice & Style Expansion Packs enable you to customize the PSR-S970 with a wide range of additional content from all over the world. When loaded into the keyboard, you can instantly access authentic new sounds, rhythms and backing in the musical style of your choice.

Harmony section
The PSR-S970 is equipped with a new Synth Vocoder function, which allows you to use your voice and synthesize with the PSR-S970's sound. The powerful Vocal Harmony 2 system allows you to control the pitch, level, and number of harmonies added, ensuring that your vocals are always the star of the show.

Chord Tracker
Identify the chord sequence from an audio track instantly with the Yamaha Chord Tracker app! The Yamaha Chord Tracker app for iPhone and iPad helps practicing and performance by extracting the chord sequence of an audio song stored on your device.

    Indeed, people of all ages desire to learn how to play the piano or a keyboard-piano, but many times purchasing a such instrument it cost much money. Instead, the top versions of digital keyboards Yamaha PSR S970 fit the budgets and performance requirements of most budding students, musicians and so on.

      Comments about Yamaha PSRS970 61 Key Arranger Workstation:

      Great practice instrument to have fun with. I pick a style and play along....creative practice. This keyboard could easily sound like a full band on a gig....just add a singer. If you sing, plug in and use on board vocal tools to get harmonies, vocorder and many other effects. Has great sounding speakers and sounds really great through studio monitors.

        Bought my Yamaha PSR 3000 from this store (GC -Fresno) 9 yrs ago.. now i need to upgrade and they give me a good price ..(again!). on this Yamaha PSR S970.....Don't hesitate to ask for a good deal.(esp. if you see similar on the net..) . Staff are very nice here.. Jeff , helped me before but he's not in yet when i came ..but Nathan, a young fellow is very nice and very helpful,,He'll try his best to give you a good/better price...

          Bad Service. Guitar Center ship a keyboard Without AC Adapter. I call them to complain until now I still have no AC Adapter. Bad Service. Monkey business. Hope others carefully consider before buying merchandise from them
