Yamaha PSR-S970 Arranger Workstation keyboard features two assignable control knobs that offer unprecedented control over a number of Voice and Style characteristics, innovative DJ Styles that put the focus on real-time Style and Voice manipulation, a large onboard Flash ROM that affords use of Yamaha's ever-growing library of Voice and Style Expansions, and a number of advanced connectivity options that provide performance and recording possibilities previously only found on the acclaimed Yamaha TYROS5.
The PSR-S970 offers a new, larger VGA screen, superior sound innovation, vocal harmony features, pro-quality accompaniment features and comprehensive recording capabilities. Musicians of all levels will be attracted to the forty new percussion-based Audio Styles that provide impressive backing and accompaniment capabilities previously only found on the higher-end TYROS5. Audio Styles add natural feel, ambience, and warmth to drum and percussion parts, allowing greater creative expression. Audio Styles also benefit from Yamaha's Time Stretch Technology, which commands the audio to follow your tempo without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync.
Another attractive audio-centric feature on the PSR-S970 is a powerful Vocal Cancel function that effectively cancels or suppresses the vocals and solos, allowing you to make your own "minus one" track and sing karaoke-style with just instrumental backing.
