Be inspired as you inspire
Perfect for songwriting, PSR-SX900 is packed with rhythmic patterns (called 'Styles') spanning many genres, making it ideal for creating the accompaniment to your musical ideas and an invaluable inspiration for your next composition or arrangement. Together with a tremendous range of expressive sounds and vocal harmony, PSR-SX900 is your ultimate and inspirational musical partner.
The Joystick allows for maximum expressive control
The Joystick controller offers intuitive pitch and modulation control, allowing for rapid trills, expressive pitch bends and fully managed modulation. The Modulation Hold button above the Joystick lets you lock your modulation choice, so you can focus on pitch bends or on your playing.
Expansive Soundfield Speakers
The onboard Expansive Soundfield Speakers ensure your performance sounds full and balanced no matter where your audience is. The innovative design of the speaker diaphragm provides a crisp, high-quality tone with high-definition response and balanced sound to a broad listening area.
New keyboard action: FSB Keyboard
Yamaha's FSB Keyboard offers remarkable playability thanks to its heavier initial key resistance and greater key travel. The refined keyboard structure, with an adjusted fulcrum, allows you to play comfortably even on the backs of the keys whilst upgraded components suppress horizontal key movement.
The audio output of PSR-SX900 has been designed to deliver the highest quality sound from your keyboard. The new digital audio converter (DAC) ensures highly detailed sound across a wide frequency range, making your recordings or performances sound absolutely professional.
PSR-SX900 features four sub line-out connections, giving you greater control over your signal routing. You can send bass voices through to a separate speaker or send the metronome click to your drummer's headphones. The flexibility is there to for you to explore.
Style Section Reset
When playing with Styles, easily jump to the beginning of the bar by pressing the RESET/TAP TEMPO button. This Style Section Reset is particularly handy when accompanying singers or when playing music with varying time signatures.
PSR-SX900 is packed with a comprehensive and sonically stunning set of authentic Voices. With over 1,393 instrument sounds, PSR-SX900 gives you the tools to play them more naturally and with greater expressiveness. The sound of the drums, derived from the Revo! Drums on Yamaha Genos, brings new levels of authenticity to your performance.
Accompaniment and rhythmic backing patterns (called 'Styles') cover a wide range of musical genres, including pop, jazz and many more. Styles let you single-handedly recreate the sound of a full band or orchestra.
Vocal Harmony / Synth Vocoder
With a microphone connected to the PSR-SX900 you can easily apply various Vocal Harmony effects to your voice. You can also use the Synth Vocoder to graft your voice onto a synthesizer creating unusual machine‐like or robotic effects, as well as unique choir sounds. As you sing into the mic, these sounds are affected by what you play on the keyboard.
Add some flavor to your performance
The Multi Pads can be used to play a number of short pre-recorded rhythmic and melodic sequences and loops that allow you to add impact and variety to your keyboard performance. Multi Pads not only work with MIDI data, but also allow you to create unique, new pad content with your own audio (WAV) data for playing back during your performance.
Touch screen / GUI
The 7" touch display and graphic user interface provide intuitive control over the instrument's powerful features.
While performing, you often need to act fast to access certain features; Assignable Functions make it easy to do just that. Choose from a range of functions to assign to one of six panel buttons or to the Live Control knobs, pedals or the Home Shortcut menu, and then instantly recall your desired function with a single touch.
Styles are made up of many instrument Parts, such as drums, bass, guitar, piano, etc. In Style Assembly it's easy to explore, audition and combine Parts from any Style to create your own personal accompaniments.
The Chord Looper lets you record and loop a chord sequence, freeing your left hand so you can play two-handed passages or manipulate sounds with any of the various assignable controllers.
Playlist and Registration Memory
Playlist makes it easy to manage and call up your songs and the related settings, no matter how large your repertoire. Organize Registration Memories into convenient Playlists for instant recall during performance.
Let your music take you to new places
Voice & Style Expansion Packs enable you to customize PSR-SX900 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. Use Yamaha Expansion Manager to create individual expansion data sets containing content from various packs and utilize the 1GB memory on board. You can even create your own voices based on your sample library.
