I'm no expert on Yamaha's way of thinking, but it seems like they don't do upgrades other than firmware and software.   They save upgrades for new models, which appear about  2 years after the first model of similar specs.   So the 2019 PSR-SX900 was an updated PSR-S975 from 2018,  which was an updated PSR-S970 from 2015.

By that measure, we shouldn't expect a re-modeled PSR-SX900/700 until 2021 or 2022, but Covid probably has slowed down development.   Maybe it will be called the PSR-SX905/705 or something like that.   Who knows.

PSR-SX900 and PSR-S910

Everything you hear here will only be speculation.

You will see a decent OS update (ie, new features) next year.

A new model won't be out until 2024.

I am not expecting to see an update like we had on our Genos keyboards as the SX900 already has some of them like chord Looper and Reset/Tap tempo. They have also made there expansion packs free for everyone now. What updates were you hoping for.

Some upgraded input jacks and at least two more added , one for on/off foot controller to the vocal harmonizer and separated mic/ guitar inputs , just a wasted to have one without the other !!

This discussion has already been made on the Genos thread. I agree with you, but unfortunately Yamaha will not make new upgrades if few users request them. Right now, several features have some bugs on Genos, but it seems that most users still like the machine overall. For these reasons, Yamaha will not invest in time and money to please a few people.

What about functions, Rec'n'Share, and Unison & Accent? It would be nice if you add these functions to the SX900 in an upcoming firmware update. Regards. Hans

Hi all
have the possibility of being able to take advantage of a midi pedal to control the style section like the tyros.
I believe that at this price it should not even be a problem.
P.S
its my last Yamaha

I'm expecting the Unison & Accent feature from the SX600 on SX700/900 (and Genos?) along with a dozen new styles especially those that cater to that new Unison & Accent feature. It's a software-only feature so it should technically work considering all 3 are from the "SX" series, doesn't make sense to have an exclusive feature on a lower-tier SX600... just like what Yamaha did with Chord Looper function - Introduced it with SX900 as a launch feature and then after 6 months or so added that to the Genos, too.

Regards,
Chris

Hi all
Happy NY!
I just took delivery of my PSR-SX900 today and joined this amazing forum. Such a good resource to have besides the reference manual.
I'm absolutely blown away by this keyboard having updated from a PSR-S750.
In terms of v 2.0 updates, I would like to see the ability to play one's own chords in intros and endings. Think the Korg Pa series do that.
