PSR S910 or S650?
« on: June 23, 2012, 09:55:33 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I own a PSR S900 and quite happy with it except for the fact that it doesn't have the Indian drum kit under the percussion kits which is a great loss. The Indian drum kit is very valuable when making Indian Beats because it has the exact tabla tones that make it sound like a real tabla. The S910 has this, so I am wondering whether to buy a S910 or a S650 which is also said to have rich Indian percussion.  Since I am a beat composer/programmer, I need a quality Indian drum kit to compose, so absence of preset styles is not a problem.

Can somebody pls tell me which keyboard ( S910 or S650 ) has the most quality and widest range of Indian drum kits and is a better style composer?

Regards
Prabath

If you can wait, I recommend you wait for the 910 upgrade and
we may see something about that within the next 45 days.

It will likely have everything on the 650 plus much of the T4 sounds.

I wasn't going to do anything today - so far, I'm on schedule, :)

Hi Prabath,

The successor to the PSR-S910 is the PSR-S950 (and it's brother the PSR-S750) which is now available in some parts of the world, but I'm not sure if it is available in India yet.

The 950 does have an Indian drumkit but there are only three Tabla sounds in it.

If you are interested you can download the Data List from the following link.  On page 31 you can see a list of all the sounds in the Indian kit.

http://download.yamaha.com/search/product/?category_id1=16277&category_id2=16084&product_id=1686055

The 950 and the 750 have the capability to accept expansion packs containing new styles and voices, and currently there are packs available focussing on the music of different parts of the world, but to date there has not been an Indian pack released. Yamaha did release an Indian pack for the PSR-S650 keyboard but that is not compatible with the 950;750.  At the moment the expansion packs are only available from Yamaha.

Regards

Ian

Thank you Ian.

How about the PSR I455 which was launched recently in India? Is it better than the PSR 950 in terms of the  Indian Drum kit range and programming availability? Since the Indian Expansion packs are not available for PSR 950, do you think PSR I455 would be a better choice for me? I am in Sri Lanka so I can get it easily.

Hi Prabath,

I'm sorry but I can't advise you about the I455.

I suspect that the 'I' in I455 may indicate that the keyboard is specific to the Indian market.

You have probably already seen this, but here is a link to the Yamaha website showing the specifications of the I455.  You can access other downloads for it from the 'Support' tab but there is not an Owner's manual or Data List available.  The specs. seem to suggest that it can hold up to five user styles at a time, but you may be able to change those for others using a USB stick, but without the Owner's manual it is impossible to be certain.

Hi Prabath,

I guess I445 is something like E433. Maybe it's an Indian Music version of E433 (E433 with Indian voices and styles). Since you have a S900, I don't think I445 suits you. I think I445 is a low-price product.  :)

There is no Indian pack for S950 right now, but I guess YAMAHA will release it soon (just guessing) because similar thing once happened.  ;)

So my suggestion is: If you are not in a hurry, please just wait.

Regards

FYI... The extracted YEP Indian Styles for the S650 will play on the S910, S750 and S950 by assigning the Indian Kit , Harmonium, Dulcimer, and XG Ethnic Voices such as the Tamboura, and Sitar using the Mixing Console.

The extracted S650 styles can be found here:

I tried the styles on PSR S900, but they won't work.

I have a PSR 5700, PSR 510, PSR S900 in my collection, I guess the next keyboard will have to be PSR S950 !

Thank you all for your feedback !

Regards
Prabath

Hi Prabath

The reason why they will not work on your 900 is because these styles are SFF2. Your keyboard can only handle SFF1. You can convert these styles using Jorgens Style Format 2 Convertor.
http://www.jososoft.dk/yamaha/software/sf2c/index.htm
Once they are in the SFF1 format you will have to tune them for best results. Start with midi player to optimize them. You will probably have to change the drum kit and may have to use legacy voices.
Hope this is of some help
