Weellll..i'm back to do another update. This machine(psr9000)gets a solid 4/5 overall,after 5yrs of ownership! And yes i still get the freezing during playing & making styles,and you CANNOT just keep playing as spoken of here.I repeat nothing is functional,unless you restart machine. When making style si'm always saving little sections now& have not lost anything in years now. I cooked/fried the Internal Amplifier, after playing for 3 hard bass shacking hours,so currently everything is just through headphones.

i owned this synth and it messed up a fab trak i was makin totally to this day dont know how it managed to knock the songs timings off halfway through. the sampler is good but boring in a sense as is this machine it looks boring and confusing although easy to use after a week or so fiddling.

i personally would not venture toward this or the pro version agian i had rev 3 and ir was so dull im sorry but it is a dull synth and you have to push it far very far but it did manage sampling wise i wouldnt use those samey lamey preset sounds they all sound like each models sound

I am back for an updated review in response to Denver M..yep i still very frequently experience "freeze ups" where i'm in the process of making a style and bang..all froze up with 40mins into a main/intro,after pressing all kinds of button configurations,i can only result in shutting off machine to start all over again,maybe only very few 9000's(not 9G pro) are like this..but if not ALWAYS save work in miniscule sections..but..to me i will NEVER sell this KB!!..to me this one a collector much like a Psr 8ooo..i wish the 9g had the thumbwheels they came with!but with 126 poly..no KB still beats it to me..the T2?..not to me!!perhaps a 'Neko' might!

I previously wrote the first reply when i had OS version 2.1, now many moons later i'm at yamaha's final ver 3.6..this is the only machine i am satified with..i think it beats everything in the looks department including the tyros for the reason i cannot stand all the lite buttons when it's on, i find it very distracting when making music in my nice dark room at night. I have even modified my psr9000 so it's screen can be covered by a nice velvet covering so it darn near looks like it's off,i know some of us are a little strange,but some tranceians are just that way. Anyhow i completly underated my KB last time because i was in a massive rush to do this ..but i would like to state it still freezes up sometimes in the most inconvienant time when i'm deep into creating a style..now i habitually save when i'm done with a section at a time.Iv'e lost masterpieaces that i still cannot recreate for some reason.Other thhan this very small problem i still get giddy with it , sometimes for 10hrs at a time and it is a very solid machine.Iv'e begged yamaha to make just one more version to allow more custom voice space, as i find it fustrating that in the over 800+ voices only 32 cutoms are available.

The psr9000 really sounds good i think people are a little biased against these psr boards and most of them are junk but the 9000 is a pretty decent keyboard there are lame sounds and there are good sounds just like korg or any other board they have strenths and weaknesses it has a good keybed almost like the dx 7 type keybed not the cheap like most psr boards even better than the tyros keybed the problems discribed in the first review here just are not true in version 3.02 of the os i have not found any of the problems they claim to have found in the review on the first page i think they trashed it unfairly
