      Yamaha PSR-S770 First Look Demo Video

      Yamaha PSRS770 Keyboard Review by Staff Member Justin Myerscough

      Every now and again myself and colleague Keith Rawlinson get to escape the shop for the day to preview new products with Yamaha , on this occasion it was for the August 2015 launch of the new PSRS series Keyboards - PSR-S670 - PSRS-770 - PSR-S970 and the new CVP700 series Digital Pianos - CVP701 - CVP705 - CVP709

      First Impressions of the Yamaha PSR-S770.

      The widescreen effect is the first visual difference you notice , compared to the 5" Black and White square screen of the PSRS750, the 7 inch TFT Color Wide VGA LCD screen of the PSR-S770 certainly looks sleeker , more modern , clearer and lesss cluttered than its predecessor. There are over 152 extra sounds on the S770 when compared to the S750, although obviously the quality rather than quantity of voices is more important , as a general rule the "SA" or "Super Articulation" are amongst the best voices , in this respect the S770 has nearly double the SA voices of its predecessor. Its not all about SA voices though there are some excellent new voices in all the other categories , such as mega , sweet , cool and live voices and 10 more organ flutes.


      Previously only the Tyros models have the capacity to have a sensible amount of expansion , the S770 now has 160mb of sample memory, its not nearly as much as the 512mb available on PSRS970 but customers will be able to purchase some "tyros type " expansion packs from www.yamahamusicsoft.com . In addition you can also import third party samples such as those supplied by www.ttt-sounds.com. If anyone has any difficulty in downloading or using their packs all AC Hamilton customers benefit from friendly help and technical support from our affable technical whizz kid Mr Keith Rawlinson whose patience is limitless when coming to the aid of our customers.

      MP3 Vocal Cancel

      A good facility for a keyboard of this price , you can play MP3's through your S770 and also take the vocals out , this is not an exact science so don't expect it to faithfully delete the vocals to all of your MP3's because it all depends on how it was originally recorded however I tried it on an Adele track and it worked perfectly

      Live Controllers.

      You will notice that on the extreme left hand side of the keyboard there are 2 new knobs , these are live controllers , these can be used to choose from the numerous new arpegggiated synth phrases.

      New DJ Styles

      This is an interesting one , the new DJ styles have a pre programmed chord progression, so your left hand isn't stuck to the keyboard.

      Price + Conclusions + PSR-S950 Versus PSR-S770

      As a rough guide we usually say that the new lower model is equivalent to the previous higher model , so in other words the S770 is of a similar standard to the S950, actually in this case the S770 in many respects is better than the S950 and when you consider the price ( around 750 GBP ) compared to what the S950 used to sell at ( between GBP1650 at the start of its life down to around GBP1200 towards the end ) its a massive saving . The benefits of the Yamaha PSR-S770 over the PSR-S950 are :

      • Far superior screen
      • 44 extra voices including 5 additional SA voices
      • Nearly 3 times the amount of expansion voice memory
