The Yamaha PSR-S950 61-Key Digital Workstation has an organ-style keyboard with 5 levels of touch response. The AWM stereo sampling tone generator features 786 Voices with 128-note polyphony. Additionally, the PSR-S950 has 33 Drum/SFX kits, 480 XG Voices, General MIDI 2, and GS. With built-in digital effects, 4 Multi Pads, Audio Styles advanced auto-accompaniment, songs and USB audio recording, this feature-packed keyboard will enhance your music creation experience.

The PSR-S950 features an additional level of functionality for singers, with a 1/4" microphone input and two vocal-specific effects. Vocal Cancel is essentially a karaoke generator, removing center-panned vocal material to let you do the singing. Time Stretch and Pitch Shift functions allow you to sing any song in the key and tempo of your choice. Vocal Harmony2 backs you up with 44 presets of effects and realtime vocal harmony generation.

Within the PSR-S950's 786 built-in Voices, there are 235 Featured Voices. The Super Articulation, Mega, Sweet!, Cool!, Live!, and Organ Flute Featured Voices sample every nuance of the instruments they model. The built-in Voices can be further enhanced by PSR-S950's onboard digital effects. Reverb, Chorus, Noise Gate, Compression, and EQ are all available with a multitude of included factory presets. Real Distortion, a group of new guitar amplifier and stompbox modeling effects, are also included. These distortion presets meticulously reproduce the sound of classic amps from the 1960's and 70's and their effect on frequency bands and dynamics.

The PSR-S950's auto-accompaniment and song features are designed to assist you in the writing and recording process. The 25 Audio Styles advanced auto-accompaniment presets use Yamaha Time Stretch Technology to sync real recordings of drummers, percussionists, and percussion ensembles seamlessly to your playing. With 383 additional accompaniment presets, you'll be able to find backing tracks for most anything that you're working on. The PSR-S950 also allows unlimited song recording via its USB flash memory input. Up to 16 tracks per song can be recorded in WAV file formats. Recorded audio can also be assigned to the PSR-S950's 4 Multi Pad triggers for instant playback and looping. Playback for MP3 audio is also supported.

The PSR-S950 offers a variety of useful connections on its back panel. 1/4" TRS main outputs and 2 foot pedal inputs are included, as well as a 1/8" stereo Aux input for portable audio devices. The PSR-S950 also features a composite video output, MIDI In/Out connectors and USB connectivity. The USB-A port enables flash drive recording, custom patch storage and Multi Pad audio. The USB-B allows for multi-function computer connection.

Super Articulation Voices
Super Articulation Voices authentically reproduce the performance characteristics of acoustic instruments. They also add expressive nuances to your performance without the need for tricky controller manipulation.
Mega Voice Style Technology
Mega Voices add dimension to your playing by incorporating performance sounds like guitar and bass finger slides, brass falls, and vocal effects. Mega Voices provide dynamic and realistic sounding accompaniment.
Studio and Performance Quality Sound
The onboard mixing console gives you access to functions like balance, panning and DSP effects borrowed from Yamaha's professional recording and live sound products.
Microphone Input and Vocal Effects
The PSR-S950 features a 1/4" microphone input. The Vocal Cancel effect removes center-panned vocal material to let you do the singing. Time Stretch and Pitch Shift functions allow you to choose the key and tempo. Vocal Harmony2 backs you up with 44 presets of effects and realtime vocal harmony generation.
Audio Style Advanced Accompaniment Presets
In addition to the other 383 auto-accompaniment presets, the PSR-S950 includes 25 Audio Styles accompaniment presets. Audio Styles uses Yamaha Time Stretch Technology to sync real recordings of drummers, percussionists, and percussion ensembles seamlessly to your playing.
Real Distortion
Real Distortion effects are digital models of classic guitar amplifiers from the 1960's and 70's. There are also models of legendary guitar effects pedals. The result is an accurate, responsive tone.
Digital Amplifier
The PSR-S950 features a highly-efficient digital amplifier that achieves clarity while significantly reducing energy consumption.
USB Audio Recorder
The PSR-S950 is capable of recording and playing back high-quality uncompressed WAV audio files. It can also play audio files from its Multi Pads, via the Audio Link feature, which is great for triggering loops, vocal phrases and sound effects. Playback of MP3 files is also supported.
Voice and Style Expandability
The PSR-S950's expansion capability ensures that it can always be updated with new Voices and Styles from around the world.
1/8" Stereo Aux In
The 1/8" stereo Aux In can be used to play any source through the keyboard's integrated speakers. Use it to play along with your favorite songs, or for apps like Yamaha's "NoteStar" digital sheet music with real audio backing.
Color LCD and Video Output for Score, Lyrics and Text Display
The large integrated LCD display can show lyrics, music notation or text. The PSR-S950 also has a composite video output, so you can even display this information on an external monitor.
