The Yamaha PSR-S950 is packed with amazing Voices, Styles and comprehensive features to help you create, arrange, perform and record your music in any genre. Yamaha's cutting-edge sound innovation takes it all a step further with Audio Styles, a function that gives your performance greater expressive potential by adding real audio drum and percussion parts to Yamaha’s Guitar Enhanced Style engine. Additionally, the built-in FlashROM lets you load new Voices and Style Expansions (VSE) from around the world.

Realistic, expressive sound
Acoustic instrument-specific articulations, nuances and dynamics are challenging to reproduce. As one of the world's largest musical instrument manufacturers, Yamaha has long perfected both the science and art of this process to bring you the sophisticated, musical-sounding and easy-to-play instrument Voices. The PSR-S950's Super Articulation Voices reproduce the performance characteristics of acoustic instruments so authentically, you'll feel as if you're playing the real thing. Best of all, SA Voices intelligently add just the right expressive nuances to your performance without having to learn a bunch of tricks...just play. It's Mega Voices feature various playing techniques and performance sounds like guitar and bass finger slides, brass falls, vocal effects, etc. When used in Styles, Mega Voices provide some of the most realistic-sounding and dynamic accompaniments you've ever heard from a digital keyboard. You'd swear it ws the real thing.

Do it with "Styles"
The PSR-S950's Audio Styles take it one step further by adding an audio recording of studio drummers, percussionists and percussion ensembles playing in various recording studios from around the world. This adds the natural feel, ambience and warmth to the drum and percussion parts of the Style, giving your performance greater expressive potential. Yamaha Time Stretch Technology allows the audio to follow your tempo changes without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync. The Guitar-Enhanced Styles not only reproduce the sound of guitar playing, they reproduce the actual chord voicings used by guitar players. This adds to the overall realism of the Style.

Sing, Sing a Song
Whether you sing for fun, enjoy karaoke, or are a singer/songwriter, the PSR-S950 provides everything you need to perform or write. Just plug in your mic and sing your heart out. The PSR-S950 has a A powerful Vocal Cancel function that effectively cancels or suppresses signals like vocals and solos that exist in the center of an audio file, allowing you to make your own “minus one” track and sing “karaoke” style with just instrumental backing.

The PSR-S950’s microphone input lets you connect a microphone and sing along with your keyboard performance, Song or audio file playback.
