Yamaha PSR-S500 Workstation

Usually the term 'workstation' and $799.99 MSRP don't appear in the same sentence but Yamaha changed all that at the 2007 Winter NAMM Show with the debut of the PSR-S500. This entry-level keyboard includes professional features like a large wave ROM for voices, a powerful sound system with large, built-in speakers, full control over Styles, Voices, and Style category. There is USB connectivity, 644 instrument Voices and a backlit LCD screen that displays lyrics, chords and notation.

The PSR-S500's Style control refers to tried and true accompaniment patterns for rock, jazz or country each with three introductions, four sections with fill-ins, and three endings.

When you want to play brass parts or guitar solos, you'll have a great-working pitch bend wheel for a more realistic and expressive sound. For fully realizing your music, there is 32-note polyphony and a nine-track sequencer to record your songs. The PSR-S500 is currently available and much more information, contact Yamaha Corporation of America, Pro Audio & Combo Division, Portable Keyboards at 714-522-9011; or visit
