Choose from a massive library of production-quality sounds
Borrowing from the Tyros series and many other successful forerunners, the Yamaha PSR-S770 offers you an expansive collection of amazing sounds you can use to play music of all different genres. In total, we’re talking about 1,346 unique voices, ranging from bread-and-butter DX sounds to the Super Articulation Voices we’ve been impressed with ever since Yamaha first came to Sweetwater to show them off. Powerful onboard effects, including Master Compressor and Master EQ let you get even more milage out of your sounds, and if you need more Voices or Styles from around the world, 160MB of onboard memory provides plenty of space for expansions. You can even combine packs to create you own expansions with Yamaha’s Expansion Manager software!
Accompaniment Styles fill out your music as you play
If you’ve never had the pleasure of sitting down at one of Yamaha’s arranger keyboard, then you’re in for a real treat the first time you get your hands on your PSR-S770. Just call up one of the 360 onboard Accompaniment Styles and prepare to be blown away. As soon as you start playing, a professional band jumps in, filling in all the extra parts (bass, rhythm, accents, etc) around the notes you play. There are several ways Accompaniment Styles work, allowing you to trigger key changes, add in fills, and preform in many different ways, but they’re all amazing. There are also exciting new DJ Styles, which let you free up a hand for the function-assignable Live Controls and Multi Pads onboard the PSR-S770, allowing you to create compelling and dynamic electronic music on the fly. And thanks to a unique phrase arpeggiator, you can easily lay down melody lines and rhythmical element al well.
