Title: PSR-sx900 has been announced
Post by: ton37 on July 26, 2019, 02:13:32 AM
FYI:
"this new keyboard has a 7" touch screen like the Genos. It has a lot of content from the Genos. I've seen close up pictures and the display looks just like the Genos. There is a newly designed FSB 61 note keyboard. Like Genos there are 6 assignable buttons right below the touchscreen to program shortcuts. There are Left and Right main and left and right sub or aux outputs. There are 2 USB thumb drive ports on the back plus usb midi and midi in and midi out jacks. There is a joystick instead of a pitch bend and modulation wheel. There is a modulation lock switch and a rotary speed switch/ programable switch button. The category , registration memory, style variation buttons all look like what we are used to on the 970 and 975 series. There is a chord looper function. Newly designed "expansive sound field" speakers
Shipping will begin end of September.
Price will be a little higher than the 975.
There is also a new PSR-SX700 that will also feature the 7"touch screen but with less content and features"

Nice. I am increasingly curious and looking forward to the release.

I take it you meant to say SX900, not SX9000. ;)

I'm curious where people are getting their information about these new models, since Yamaha is always extremely tight-lipped and holds people to NDAs.

Why don't you provide us the link so we can all see the "closeup pictures" too.

I think I will continue to wait for the Yamaha OFFICIAL announcement... I'm tired of these "rumors"

Speculation and fake news AGAIN ! 😧😧😧

He looks to be a Yamaha dealer, as stated. But why he would break his NDA with Yamaha (assuming he was under one) is beyond me.

The only new information i look here its the chord loop sequencer. A feature i am waiting for long time from yamaha Keyboard. I hope if this information is true that Yamaha bring it to Genos too by next update.

Post by: DonM on July 26, 2019, 07:32:06 AM
If George Kaye really said this, you can take it to the bank as the truth.  He has always had an inside track with Yamaha, even to the extent of giving them help with design decisions.
He would absolutely not break a Non Disclosure agreement, so IF he said this, it was with permission.
He would be one of the first to know about it, but everyone will know very soon IF it is true.

;-)) Hey Joe, just skip this board as I quote ...

"The Next Yamaha Keyboard
This board is for rumors, speculation, even wish-lists, concerning upcoming Yamaha keyboards"

I agree with you, when it is too frequently used in other boards. But this is the place to speculate ;-))
Title: Re: PSR-sx9000 has been announced
Post by: beykock on July 26, 2019, 07:58:29 AM
But Don, what would be GK's motif to tell the world Yamaha's secrets ?

If GK has such a good relationship with Yamaha he would be the last person to talk about Yamaha's new products despite his NDA, IMO.

If it is no longer a secret, Yamaha would be the first to announce this important news, right ?

As long as Yamaha do not present the new S-serie officially, all other news is pure speculation and fake.

Do you agree ?📌

Post by: vbdx66 on July 26, 2019, 08:42:40 AM
Guys, if you remember, when the Genos got out, the video clip by Alex Christensen showing some fragments of the Genos was leaked and it led to tons of speculations. It seems the same thing is happening here again.

Which makes me wonder: maybe “leaking” the information is Yamaha’s subtle way of marketing their new product? After all, this very conversation is all free advertisement...

To be more specific, if the alleged PSR SX900 has a chord sequencer on board, the next Genos firmware update better should have it, too, or many people will be very disappointed.

Chord sequencer, joystick... this PSR SX900 looks like a contender to the Korg PA1000...

Jeremy See is saying nothing new ( no specs etc. ) about the S-serie successor.

The only thing we hear is the present S-serie has to be renewed and replaced due to " the pressure " of the competition.

All Yamaha dealers have signed the NDA.

Babette

I have yet to see a NDA for any distribution business with regular dealers here in EU. NDA for official corporate owned shops and their employees like Apple shops sure but not for independent dealers. Then again as newbie I might be completely wrong for USA or music market in general.   ???

Is George Kay an official employee of Yamaha?

Anyway this is a great news for me. I'll wait for new PSR-SX700. Perfect gift for my birthday. Hopefully it will have a competitive price.  :)
Title: Re: PSR-sx9000 has been announced
Post by: beykock on July 26, 2019, 10:13:15 AM
All European and UK Yamaha dealers are independent music business companies but to become an official Yamaha dealer one must sign the NDA.

I guess all Yamaha dealers ( all over the world ) are obliged to sign the NDA, also in the USA.
If they refuse to sign, they will not be delivered directly by Yamaha, IMHO.

BTW all Yamaha employees ( UK, Germany etc. ) have a NDA
employee agreement.

I liked the touchscreen of my former Genos. I hope the SX9000 has (a lot) more expansion-memory. And I hope aftertouch (allthought I'm afraid it doesn't have). A slightly less noisy keybed. All those sliders, ok.. I take that for granded, 2 live buttons were enought for me. But no hurry needed, I love my 975. Nevertheless a nice prospect to start a new year with a new toy. Mmm.. I dream on

This news is quite amazing. We were waiting for this since long.

In the past, the S970 got new features, that were NOT played back to Tyros platform. (things like DSP settings saved to registrations, liveknobs and deejay styles or so...). Thus the S970 was on the upgrade path from Tyros to Genos.

However, since Yamaha has announced another Genos update (continuing the Genos journey....), I think that new features will find their way to Genos.

I like to speculate as much as anyone.

However, "announced" means at least a press release from Yamaha.

- Black functional buttons, control styles, regist, OST buttons ... with plastic and blue LEDs like Genos (Rubber button has been removed)
- The 61 key keyboard does not have any upgrades, still using the rubber elastic touch key like S975, no after touch.
- Full body in black plastic
- Weight about 11.5kg
- Expected to be released in October 2020

Hopefully, this will all be good news for folks wanting to upgrade in the mid-range. If there is a chord looper, I would welcome that addition in a Genos update.  8)

Hi Al,

Not sure why you posted that because the info is 100% reliable.

The two SX models exist, and Yamaha have even set up the option of registering those models for extended warranty, those two models are on their list of products for registration.

No reaction from Yamaha yet, I guess ?

I know... but there is no mention of it in the above list.  I see he compares the Genos with its 6 knobs to only 2 knobs (I was hoping for at least 4 knobs) for the sx arranger. All the other upgrades are really nice.

There are some pictures in the new Jeremy See's video.
I don't know if they are true or not but at least the psr sx900 logo is written in the proper way and the photos of the instrument are not identical to a Genos.

Ok, so far we have

* three Right Parts (R1, R2, R3) instead of two
* revo drums
* chord Looper

So this is a good advancement.

And we still have dedicated Buttons For Voice and style categories. I liked this very much on my S970.

I would say the PSR-X series is to the Genos like the MODX series is to the Montage.

Not everything will be included, as the keybed and perhaps some superarticulation voices, but a large part of it will be and at a lower price.

So kudos for Yamaha and congratulations to Genos owners as this paves the road for software updates for Genos

Chord looper - You play a series of chords in live play and it keeps playing them for you when you stop. Can be used for several things including solos, improvising etc. useful to allow you use both hands to play the lead lines or solos because lh part is being played for you. Sequencer is the more technical name but the same thing.

With loop using chord sequencer just set it up and play something like F Dm Gm7 and C7. These four chords will then play continuously until you stop the loop. Very good for practising.

OK,

Now I'm convinced this the real deal.  I'm disappointed that there are only 2 Live Control knobs though.  But if Yamaha made the Live Control available via a foot pedal that would be very nice. Sounds like the key-bed is an upgrade too!

I also like that there is still a lot of Panel buttons and not just a touch screen.  We get the best of both worlds that way.

The PSR sx900 really is a baby Genos after all (surprise, surprise)

BTW... All those dedicated buttons offers the opportunity for arranger/Cubase Integration.  Thru software, the keyboard could sync to Cubase and assign specific buttons to remotely operate Cubase from the keyboard.  It could also be done via the touch screen... maybe even better with graphic displays on the keyboard screen. 

The thing is that Yamaha released a "style template" for Cubase years ago.  If Steinberg would add a CASM function to Cubase, (Yamaha owns Steinberg) then Cubase could become a better style Creator than we have in our keyboards now.

Yes, you are right, but on Genos they could use on-display (virtual) buttons and/or assignable buttons. Not so clean, but for sure better than not having the function available!

Even other option could be using other buttons on a secondary function, even if not shown on the labels... Software could do any way the programmers decide. Let's hope they think it is an interesting function for the flagship arranger. I think they will.

Judging by these first information, I am enthusiastic about it. There are a lot of big plusses for me.
My advancing insight into my exploration of the Yammies offers more and more guidance on what I expect from a keyboard and what I can / want to do with it. Based on the first information, the SX900 version seems to come very close. This is of course a very personal wish list and certainly does not diminish the choice of others for their keyboard.

I am curious about the missing information on: the polyphony, the price, the usability and readability of the 7 "inch screen, how the keybed feels. But that will soon be clear. I will definitely try this version when he is in the dealers' shop. As it looks now, it's a serious chance that it will be a replacement for my 975?

Your can paint it red or gold and put a touch screen and many other additional fluff but at the end of the day it’s down to how it sounds

Yamaha has a history of using the exact same voice sample for years and years right back to the 3000 just adding a little bit more FX

If it sound like the S975 then I’m out.

If it’s more like the Genos sound then I’m in.

We wait and see, or, wait and hear.

Regarding the chord sequencer, for some reason Roland didn't put it on their latest arranger, the EA7, even though they have had it on previous models for many years, and pretty much invented it.
Korg has had it for a long time too, but they finally issued an update that lets you save a CS to Songbook.  The new free styles they have released even have Chord Sequences associated with them from the factory, although of course you don't have to use them, and they can be overwritten, as can everything on Korg.
I'm hoping the new Yamaha will allow saving the CS to a memory.
It's a VERY useful function for live play, freeing up the left hand for easy use of the joystick and other functions.

Thank you for your explanation and practical insight. When I had the Genos I had always the feeling that I needed more hands to handle all those buttons and sliders. As you described the CS function, this could be very 'handy' ;-)). Thanks

But for me, having no car, dependent of people to drive me and my gear to a gig, it would be VERY handy with a keyboard that really was a mini version of the flagship in that it had scat and choir voices and so on. As for upgrading my 975, I don't think I will do that. I really love it, and have had it only 7 months, with its wonderful buttons and all :)

All those styles don't belong to the same category because the only thing that have in common is just a slower tempo.

As I said before the new SX series look to be nice instruments with impressive new features.

Much depends on the final street price ... it would be wonderful if the present prices of the S-serie could be continued but that wish might be a bridge too far, I guess.

I expect a consumer price increase of approx. + 15 to 20%.

I paid 1900.00 USD for my S970... so a couple hundred more for the sx900 would be a bigger bang for the buck in my opinion. Which is typically the case with each new keyboard released.

I'm waiting for the official announcement from Yamaha and a Youtube demo.  It's sounds good on paper... but I want to get the facts before I make a decision.  I've got to sell a few of my unused MIDI gear to pay for the thing anyway; so I'm not in a hurry.  I won't be one of the first to buy.  I'm interested... but don't want to get too excited about it.  It's just a keyboard you know.

3.Minimum 6-8 SONG Single Repeat mode positions (now is 4)

4. Posability when SONG+STYLE play same time when SONG is turned OFF (Style continue play at that moment) and than Turn back ON again style continue play.

I hope.....  :)

When it comes to arranger upgrading, who has the luxury to see, hear, or try out the product before purchase?  Do most rely on forums, witness testimony, written reviews, and youtube videos?  I’ve never demo’d any of my arrangers before receiving shipment.  Right, or wrong, I assume that any upgrade will be, in fact, an improvement and will sound better than the previous model. So far, no disappointments, especially with Yamaha.  Can’t say that for other brands.

Based on the experiences in the past you are absolutely right. I don't think it will be any different now. That also applies to other products: cars, smartphones, computers etc. etc. So the SX900 will without exception be 'better' than its last predecessor. It depends on what the customer wants to spend his money on at that time.With the former Technics range, I thought the KN3000 was the ultimate, would be my last (promised my wife, what I liar I was ;-)), the KN SX 5000, the KN SX6000 and the KN SX7000 always surpassed him and tempted me to upgrade each time again. Nice detail: yamaha SX ... technics SX. Some Technics technicians went to Yamaha. Then it should not be so difficult to make a tilting screen like Technics SX ;-))

When the S950 keyboard was introduced in the fall of 2012 with the New Vocal Harmonizer, along with the new sampled S.A. Guitars, I was going to upgrade to it the following year when I retired. But as LUCK would have it, my PSR2000 gave up the ghost 2 weeks before Christmas. :)

My S950 came the week after Christmas. 8)

I love the sounds I get out of my S950, no complaints there. What I need is some built in feature to allow better STYLE creating. BETTER as in easier to record and move exiting patterns around among the styles.

The only thing currently on the newer keyboards I wish I had would be the NEW "Pedal Steel Guitar".  I really haven't heard anyone on the forum able to show case it , so maybe it ain't really all that great after all.   ;)

Actually I did play the Genos for a day and one of things I did like a lot was that sound. 
I already had touch screen (adjustable), joy stick (plus touch strip), great vocal harmonizer and great sounds, plus numerous live operating controls, including Songbook, and Chord Sequencer (Looper per Yamaha), so wasn't much interested in the Genos.  I thought about sampling the Pedal Steel and using it in my Korg though.

The impression I've gotten from similar leaks which were quelled by Yamaha is that they weren't at all happy about the leaks, and worked relatively quickly to make the leakers sign NDAs and stop giving out information ahead of time. I really think these leaks are coming from Yamaha employees, or workers at factories which are contracted by Yamaha (or however that works), and that Yamaha does not approve or endorse the leaks. Yamaha occasionally engages in teaser ads, but these are always posted on one of their official websites-- such as YamahaSynths.com-- and they mention the date when the full announcement or "unveiling" will occur. These unapproved leaks may stir up interest, but they can also lead to a lot of misinformation and erroneous speculation about features, so they can potentially do more harm than good.

I'm not a fan of speculation cause the actual product may differ from what is speculated, thus will be disappointing if it not implemented in the retail release.

The leak has certainly kept people busy on this forum! Thank you Yamaha.
There will always be improvements/additional features between the latest and previous model. But this technology is now so mature that they will be incremental rather than groundbreaking. Maybe so incremental that people argue about whether they are inprovements or not. This has been true for at least 15 years.
If you are already in the market for a new keyboard, then it makes sense to get the latest. If you just enjoy new things or having the latest model and can afford it, then of course go ahead get it. If you spot some new facility or feature you really want, then of course consider buying it.
But if you think any of this is going to make it easier to play, or make you a better player, then you are kidding yourself, just like I do every time I buy a new set of golf clubs, ;)

If you are already in the market for a new keyboard, then it makes sense to get the latest. If you just enjoy new things or having the latest model and can afford it, then of course go ahead get it. If you spot some new facility or feature you really want, then of course consider buying it.
But if you think any of this is going to make it easier to play, or make you a better player, then you are kidding yourself, just like I do every time I buy a new set of golf clubs, ;)
Mike

I agree 100%

I will just add this: All this past years with all this leaks and all this argues Yamaha get FRRE Commercial.
Very smart. :)

Hi,

IMHO this is a false leak and a true, clever advertising campaign. If you remember, it just started this way with the Genos: a “leaked” first trailer which just teased you enough to make you want to see (and hear) more.

Anyway, today at midnight, it’ll be August 1st, so...

By the way... midnight in which country???

Regards,

Vinciane

It is again surprising how quickly news is cited by various sources around the world. If, for instance, you follow this post, than one sometimes get anxious about how easily "truths" on wrong facts and / or sources are considered true, v.v. Like with so many subjects, and specially the much more important ones !!. So .. stay alert ..

FYI, on SynthZone, GK has not explained why he deleted his spec info on the SX-900, He did not delete the actual post,  thus keeping the topic alive. Could he be an official Yamaha  " leaker/ teaser" ? Not a bad thing, because it means it must be true,
 It's all kinda funny.  :)  Is it Aug 1 yet?

Hi Don,

I quote a post on SynthZone:
"Here's some information on comparing the new PSRSX900 and the PSRS975:

Comparison of PSR-SX700 and PSRS775

PSR-SX700
1337 Voices, 56 Drum/SFX kits, 480 XG (vs. 986 Voices, 41 Drum/SFX kits, 480 XG)
8 insert effect slots (vs. 5)
Chord Looper function
Bluetooth audio
1GB expansion Voice memory (vs. 400MB)
4GB internal memory (vs. 1GB)
329 Multi Pad banks (vs. 226)
Main L&R line outputs, plus Sub L&R line outputs (vs. Main L&R only)
Expansive Sound Field speakers
(15W + 10W) x 2 amplifiers (vs. 15W x 2 only)
USB to device x 2 (vs. x 1)

Corrections according to Yamaha specs:

* 986 voices, not 1337
* 5 insert effects, not 8
* No chord looper
* No bluetooth
* 400 MB expansion memory, not 1 GB
* 226 Multi Pad banks, not 329
* no Sub L&R outputs, only Main
* 15W x2, not 15W+10W x2
* 1 USB to device, not 2

So the head line of the paragraph should have been Comparison SX900 and SX700, then it would have been right.

Thus, the SX700 is strongly reduced as compared to SX900.

My guess is the store price for the PSR SX900 will be € 1.950,-. That is € 100,- more than the S975.

When the S950 keyboard was introduced in the fall of 2012 with the New Vocal Harmonizer, along with the new sampled S.A. Guitars, I was going to upgrade to it the following year when I retired. But as LUCK would have it, my PSR2000 gave up the ghost 2 weeks before Christmas. :)

My S950 came the week after Christmas. 8)

I love the sounds I get out of my S950, no complaints there. What I need is some built in feature to allow better STYLE creating. BETTER as in easier to record and move exiting patterns around among the styles.

The only thing currently on the newer keyboards I wish I had would be the NEW "Pedal Steel Guitar".  I really haven't heard anyone on the forum able to show case it , so maybe it ain't really all that great after all.   ;)
Hi Drake,

Seems your dream is being fulfilled:

As a country specialist, what do you think about the PSR SX900 pedal steel guitar as it is being showcased in this video?

The joystick seems particularly handy in this situation.

Remember this photo from July 08?

People thought it said SX300, but it is SX900.

Why no one commented this post?
Is this true that this picture has been taken back in 2008??
So that means that sx900 was ready from 2008 and they just announced it right now?
That's insane!

It’s great that we now have new models and I sure hope they will serve their future owners well. However, as far as I’m concerned, the new keyboards do not feature a sample of (or even better, a variety of) yodelling voices. Lately, I’ve been much into the folklore music of Tirol (the so called volkstümmliche Musik) and been writing an album. There is a lack of variety of styles for this genre, especially 6/8, and the only yoddeling voice available from the expansion packs, while passable, sounds average at best. Paid €120 for it, however!

While I guess new expansion packs might be available in the future, I will hold my horses and see how the things will develop. In the mean time, my psr s770 still rocks.

I can only say kudos to Yamaha - new PSRs, new CVPs, new CLPs are expected in 2020. Will have to plan a visit to next year’s Frankfurter Musikmesse.
