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-S975 arranger workstation, you’ll find that magical process smoother and more intuitive than ever. Loaded with amazing instrument Voices and exciting Accompaniment Styles — including DJ Styles and Audio Styles — creating rich music beds and fully developed songs with the PSR-S975 is as simple as playing a few chords on the silky 61-note keybed. There are hundreds of effects options to chose from, including Real Distortion amp models you can use with the PSR-S975’s external input. Add to that amazing real-time controls and a full-color 7″ LCD for easy navigation, and you’re just starting to get the picture of what this awesome arranger has in store
Your backing band awaits
For live performances, you can call up a music Style, display MP3 lyrics, and connect to a larger display for audience participation. Accompaniment Styles add an instant backing band to your performances while you maintain control over the chord changes and arrangement. Record your arrangements on the PSR-S975’s 16-track song recorder/player or capture performances directly on a USB drive. The PSR-S975 gives you an exhaustive feature set designed to let you realize your musical ideas fast — and with total control.
Packed with premium content
Packed with a whopping 768MB of flash ROM, the PSR-S975 comes pre-loaded with Yamaha’s premium Voice and Style Expansion content. There are 1625 instrument Voices, including grand piano, strings, brass, drum/SFX kits, EDM-style synths, and much more. The PSR-S975 features a guitar/mic input, USB audio recording, and sample playback via flexible multi-pads. A built-in MP3 lyrics player lets you display lyrics from MP3 song files on the keyboard’s sharp, bright color LCD — perfect for karaoke! The PSR-S975 can even connect to an external display for the ultimate in audience participation.
The real thing
The PSR-S975 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, and even independently change the song’s pitch and tempo. The PSR-S975’s Audio Styles include audio rhythm tracks played by actual musicians, so the PSR-S975 isn’t emulating the real thing — it is
the real thing! And for karaoke, the PSR-S975’s professional-quality background singers put you center stage. Sing the song and Yamaha’s state-of-the-art VH2 (Vocal Harmony 2) chip does the rest!
