(Yamaha PSR S710 Review)
I own a few Yamaha keyboards:
and now the PSR-S710.
First, this is a song-writer's dream board. The bread and butter sounds are fantastic. The styles are very usuable, and very editable - with each part of a style, you can change panning, volume, turn parts off, change the voices.
I use multi-tracking to make my music, and this little beast has been the backbone to a great deal of my newer music:
Here the PSR-S710 in action here at my site:
Other things I like about this keyboard, you can bring wave files, midi files, and song files directly into the keyboard via a usb thumbdrive (I have used many types and sizes ranging from 2GB, 4GB, 8GB and 16GB with no problems). You can also play new styles via the USB stick too (checkout http://psrtutorial.com where you can download hundreds of new styles, converted styles, and user created styles).
I have to mention the drumkits on this keyboard, simply fantastic sounds. When I make songs from scratch, I often just use the PSR-S710 drumkits and a style, playing only the drums.... just super. The flexibility of this machine is amazing.
Like I said, you have to hear it to see what it can do.... I am not a great player, but this machine makes me sound like a million bucks...
Love my Yammies....
