Incredible Music Styles
The PSRS900 contains a wealth of fully arranged music styles, including
specially designed Pianist Styles, to backup your musical performance. Yamaha
style makers around the world have been working very hard to create some
wonderful new styles for this release of the PSRS900. Each style has 3 Intros,
Main A/B/C/D variations, and 3 Endings, as well as four fill-in patterns for
added musical expression. You can change the instrument part settings of any
music style, or even create your own custom styles.
Simultaneous Style & Song Playback
Imagine being able to play a MIDI file and a Style at the same time. This
keyboard has separate controls for song and style playback. The style will
automatically sync to the MIDI file. Maybe youd like to try one of your
favorite songs with a different rhythm. If you are a writer, maybe youd like
to try your song with many different styles to see what it sounds like. If the
song has chord data in it (many XG files contain the chord data or you can
input it using the keyboard or software programs like XGworks), the style will
actually follow the chords in the MIDI file and play a complete instrumental
background. Its unique and different and just one of the cool new features of

Large Full Dot Colour LCD with Song Lyric Display &
Sing along with your favorite songs!
The large Colour LCD featured on these keyboards displays song lyric data
from Karaoke disks in real-time for endless singing enjoyment. This unique
display also makes keyboard operation easier and more convenient by displaying
more information at once. On the PSR-S900 you can display the notation for your
own recordings as well as commercially available song data and have the
notation automatically shown on the display — in whatever size or zoom
level you want. You can choose the tracks you wish to display, or let the
keyboard automatically select the tracks. The Score display will even show you
the names of the notes, if you wish. This powerful feature not only lets you
view the entire score, it shows where you are in the piece with the help of a
moving cursor that follows along with playback.
16-Track Sequencer & Lyric
Whether youre an enthusiastic beginner, a serious composer, or anything
in-between, the PSRS900s 16-track sequencer has the power to release your
musical talent. Arrange up to 16 different instrument parts to create your own
fully orchestrated songs. A variety of recording modes and editing functions
are available to suit your playing style. You can even see the notes displayed
on the large LCD screen (scoring ability).
Editing is easy and intuitive and offers cut, copy and paste features, just
like a computer! Once you enter the Song Creator mode, youll notice that we
have a new section that allows you to input lyric data into songs. Very cool.
Once you enter the lyrics, they scroll by as the song plays back — you
just have to follow the bouncing ball.
Chord data from standard MIDI files can be imported into the style section
for further editing, which is perfect for songwriters and arrangers.
In addition to MIDI connections, the PSRs900 features a USB port enabling
effortless computer connection, opening up a whole new world of educational and
creative possibilities. Expand your musical possibilities by connecting the
keyboard to external MIDI devices or even to a personal computer.
Dynamic two-way stereo speakers effectively reproduce the PSRS900s high
quality voices with rich, full-range sound. The keyboards built-in ports
enhance lower frequencies.
One Touch Setting
The One Touch Setting (OTS) function automatically configures keyboard
parameters, such as melody voice selection, tempo, and accompaniment volume, to
optimally match each music style you select. This feature has been improved on
the PSRS900. You can, if you like, have the OTS advance automatically with the
4 Main Sections of a style for ultimate hands-free operation.
Digital Effects Processor
Create rich timbres and professional mixes with the PSRS900s built-in
digital effects processor. A wide variety of effects, from warm sounding

add depth to any of the voices. The PSRS900 also includes several Multi Effects
and Master EQ that lets you precisely shape the sound.
Direct Access eliminates navigating through multiple menus. Press any
function button while holding down the Direct Access button, and the display
