This keyboard is MASSIVE! We cannot differentiate sound quality of PSR-550 or S-910 or Motif, when connected to an amp! Can you believe sonic wise it is same! surely it has less voices or styles but it beats hell out of other professional keyboard costing 10 times in price of this machine. It is all time favorite keyboard everyone wanna play in our london based studio. Very impressive sonic quality. beats are just awesome, and features? all professional. 16track, floppy, sequencer, great dsps, great playability and punch!. Now we have 2 of these monsters in our studio, we tried but could not find other to purchase, the replaced s550 lacks punch and clarity.

The PSR 550 is now outdated. Try the PSR s710 fellas, which is the new version. Pianos are much better, especially the mega voices.

I own a Yamaha PSR-550 and recently bought a UX-16 USB-MIDI interface. I installed the drivers provided with the given cd. I have WINDOWS XP OS. I want to record song performances from my keyboard to laptop. Please tell me the exact steps to go about this. Also, please suggest a free sequencer software that will work with windows xp and yamaha psr550.

I tried doing this using MULAB sequencer software and Noteworthy Composer and installed the necessary VSTi plugins. I also installed ASIO4all driver for MU.LAB. But nothing has worked.

The PSR 550 is a performer's dream board. while many of the presets are sort of cheesy it does have some great ones and the capacity to attain some amazingly thick sounds when mixed correctly. It has awesome electric pianos which sound better when layered and mixed with chorus and effects. The piano sounds are decent and this keyboard is truly up there with the best of them. It is a well kept secret as most people would not think it is a serious machine at first glance because it sort of looks like a cheap portable casio type keyboard but it is in fact a monster . You can actually layer two sounds on the right side of the keyboard while simultanously having a single sound on the left side and you can determine the split points. You can also program your 4 favorite performances and save to disk and recall in real time on the fly while performing. I know of no other synth to date that allows you to have performance presets saved to be able to recall at the touch of one button rather than scrolling thru endless menus and fussing with jog dial wheels. This keyboard is AMAZING !!!! and I will never part with it !!!

although this keyboard has no sound editing capability other than being able to layer and split sounds it butts heads with ones costing 4 times its price in terms of sound quality. the built in chorus allows you to thicken sounds and make them very thick. if you've ever considered owning that classic monster dx7II look no further than this keyboard as it outweighs the DX with better rhodes sounds (and better sounds period) and built in quality effects. The board also allows you to program your desired performances and save and recall them on the fly by pressing a single button. I have performed for all types of events (including sports events) with this board and people are always amazed at the sounds coming out of this thing. You can even program any rhythm you can dream up. I've programmed killer songo and merengue rhythms which are saved onto disk. Yamaha has created one of the all time greatest but they disguised it for the poor man's benefit. Every serious live performer and studio would seriously benefit from this board. I've owned most of the heavy hitters and this one is the one that keeps me up all night.
