The Perfect Piano for Stage and Studio!When you take your place before a Yamaha S90 XS, you're not just stepping up to piano, you're stepping up to a 1,024 of some of the greatest instrument voices Yamaha has ever made and a limitless canvas you can use to capture you ideas. You'll find everything from thundering grand pianos and breathtaking strings to the most modern synths and creative sounds on the S90 XS, plus tons of amazing effects and performance functions, right at your fingertips. On the flip side, the S90 XS is a fully loaded recording machine, with full set of built-in DAW controls and a second USB port for recording straight to your thumb drive. Top it all off with a microphone input and an amazing hammer-weighted key bed and there's no question about it, the S90 XS is the one piano every songwriter and performer needs.
It doesn't matter what your style is, whether you tickle the ivories for jazz, belt out the lines for rock, or prefer a more dynamic playing style for classics and standards, you're going to get the sounds and the feel you need from the S90 XS. Take, for example, the S6 concert grand piano sound. Yamaha created this masterfully melodic piano in the first place and captured its expressive voice to perfection in the S90 XS. But, unlike lots of other stage pianos out there that have only a few "premier" voices and a whole cash of second-rate sounds, all of the voices in the S90 XS are also absolutely fantastic — it's like having 1,024 top sounds! Add to those 9 different reverbs and 22 types of chorus, and you get performance sounds that are second to none.
Speaking of performance... there's nothing like taking the S90 XS on stage, especially if you play and sing. In fact, if you're a solo act, the S90 XS and a mic is all you need. Plug your microphone right into the back of the S90 XS and take advantage of it powerful effects to sweeten your voice and give it extra dimension. There's also a complete set of controls for controlling splits and layers on the fly that are super-easy to use — you can control up to four splits with faders that give you immediate visual feedback.
The microphone input and these intuitive front-panel controls also make the S90 XS is a killer songwriting tool. A full set of transport controls lets you start and stop recording, while assignable encoders let you tweak the parameters of your favorite virtual instruments. If you don't already have a DAW of choice, that's okay, the S90 XS comes with a copy of Steinberg's Cubase AI recording software. Recording with the S90 XS is even simpler if you'd rather not use a computer or just want to toss down a quick song idea. All you do is plug in a USB thumb drive and you're good to go! No frustration, just inspiration — and that what the S90 XS is all about!
