61-key Arranger Workstation Keyboard With 850 Onboard Sounds, 415 Accompaniment Styles, 100MB Expansion Memory, MegaVoice Articulation Technology, and Onboard Stereo Speakers
The Convergence Of Arranger and Workstation
The “keyboard arranger” has grown up, taking on many aspects of powerful music workstations and performance synths — and Yamaha is at the forefront of this synergistic convergence. Their PSR-SX600 is a prime example. The Yamaha PSR-SX600 offers you an astonishing array of voices, performance modes, songwriting tools, and more. You’ll find this 61-key arranger workstation more than inviting to play — it’s downright inspiring! A library of 850 onboard sounds gets you rolling, plus you have 100MB of memory for voice and style expansion packs. What’s more, there are 415 styles to choose from on the PSR-SX600, and you can always just plug in your own music player and jam along with your favorite tunes. Of course, there’s an onboard sequencer that lets you turn your ideas into polished masterpieces.
Tap into an extensive library of superb sounds
Between the PSR-SX600’s advanced voices, stockpile of 480 XG sounds, and extensive collection of drum and SFX kits, it’s easy to find inspiration quickly. Among the advanced voices, you’ll find 27 brilliantly detailed Sweet! Voices, 64 impressively dynamic Cool! Voices, and 71 stereo sampled Live! Voices, plus 27 of Yamaha’s Mega Voices, which allow you to comfortably play instruments that aren’t always easy to articulate on piano keys. What’s more, you can expand both the PSR-SX600’s voices and styles with Yamaha’s Expansion Packs and 100MB of storage space, so fresh sounds are never far away.
Styles and sequencing let you write music quickly
Speaking of fresh styles, one of the things that impressed us when Musiekwereld got our first glimpse of the PSR-SX600 is the way the Unison function lets Style accompaniment parts follow your performance. All told, you get 415 accompaniment Styles that naturally adapt to your performance and fill in around the notes you play. These Styles include all of the standard genres you know and love, plus many exotic options from around the world, so it’s easy to get adventurous. And when you find something you love, there’s an easy-to-use sequencer onboard that lets you turn your ideas into finished pieces.
A powerful performance keyboard
With its sleek, stage-ready design, amazing new Voices and Styles, and Unison and Accent functions, the PSR-SX600 is a performance keyboard like no other. Its Accent function lets you add rhythmic accents anytime on-the-fly, simply by hitting the keys with greater velocity. The Smart Chord feature makes it easy to play everything from simple triads to jazzy 7th voicings with just a few fingers. Studio-grade DSP effects such as Real Distortion applied to a guitar or Real Reverb on a piano add the perfect of color and vibe to your sound. Real-time control knobs, assignable pedals, and expansion ROM make the Yamaha PSR-SX600 instantly customizable to your needs, whatever the musical setting.
