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 a step further with "Audio Styles." Audio Styles give 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.


Just play to experience incredibly realistic and expressive sound

Acoustic instrument-specific articulations, nuances and dynamics are challenging to reproduce. As the world's largest musical instrument manufacturer, Yamaha has perfected both the science and art of this process to bring you the most sophisticated, musical-sounding and easy-to-play instrument Voices.

Mega Voice Style Technology

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.

Powerful, pro-quality accompaniment available at the touch of a button

Playing a Style is like being the conductor of a band that always plays the chord and arrangement you tell them to play. The new PSR-S950 has a huge set of 408 built-in dynamic Styles. Yamaha Styles are created by the world's best programmers and mixed by professional studio engineers to ensure unparalleled quality.

Guitar-Enhanced Styles with Mega Voices

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.

Vocal features create a new depth of fun and productivity

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!

Vocal Cancel

A powerful Vocal Cancel function 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.

Microphone input / Vocal Harmony2

The PSR-S950's microphone input lets you connect a microphone and sing along with your keyboard performance, Song or audio file playback. With Vocal Harmony you can sing along with three of your own virtual background vocalists. Vocal Harmony2 takes that a step further with new pitch recognition and stability controls. A convenient real-time Mic Level indicator is included in the main display, and a new intuitive graphic user interface makes it easy to experiment with your own mic settings, effects and harmony types. To get you started, PSR-S950 includes 44 exciting Vocal Harmony presets, including male, female Voices, SFX settings.

Score, Lyrics and Text display

The large LCD display can show lyric, music notation or text. You can even display this information on an external monitor.



Yamaha's renowned audio and DSP technology provides great live and recorded sound

In music production, the key to creating great sound is in the way the song is mixed. The mixing console lets you mix your music like a studio engineer; including balance, panning and professional studio Digital Signal Processing (DSP) borrowed from Yamaha's renowned professional recording and live sound products.

Real Distortion

Real Distortion effects are based on digital models of classic guitar amplifiers from the 1960's and 1970's. There are also digital models of legendary analog guitar effect pedals. The result meticulously reproduces the frequencies and dynamics of real distortion guitar sounds.

New Speaker and Speaker Box

A larger speaker box gives the PSR-S950 a full, powerful sound with deep lows and clear highs.

Digital amplifier

The PSR-S950 features a Yamaha manufactured digital amplifier with a superb signal to noise ratio. Because of its fully digital, highly efficient design, the amp delivers high performance while significantly reducing energy consumption.

Experience the new, versatile high performance audio engine

The PSR-S950 is capable of playing back and recording audio files. It also has a number of audio manipulation features you can use to create "karaoke" style "minus one" tracks in the key and tempo of your choice. It can also play back audio files from its Multi Pads, great for triggering loops, vocal phrases and sound effects.

MP3 playback

The PSR-S950 conveniently supports MP3 and WAV audio file playback.

Time Stretch and Pitch shift

Left : Time Stretch, Right : Pitch shift

Not all singing voices have the same range. The PSR-S950 can put your favorite song in the key of your choice with a powerful pitch shift feature that lets you change the key without changing the tempo. If you do want to change the tempo, you can use the time stretch feature to slow down or speed up the tempo without changing the pitch.

Audio Link Multi Pad

Audio Link Multi Pad function lets you link your own audio files (sound effects, vocal phrases, and so on), and trigger them from the Pads as you perform.

Audio Recording

Record your songs and performances as high-quality, uncompressed WAV files to share online or burn to a CD. Connect a microphone or guitar to the instrument and enjoy recording a guitar and keyboard performance together, or record your singing along with song playback.

Voice and Style Expandability keeps your instrument up-to-date

Voice and Style Expansion ensures your instrument can always be updated with new high-quality Voices and Styles from around the world. Best of all, you can sample many of these expansions for free at:
