Players, take note. You want the ultimate keyboard instrument for performing and creating? We've put it all together for you. Exceptional quality instrument sounds. A piano sound to die for. A truly realistic, naturally expressive keyboard. Convenient, comprehensive control.
Real-time controls for tweaking of the sound as you play. Audio recording to USB memory. Extensive computer music features. Ease of use, plus compact size and portability. Introducing the S90 XS and S70 XS Music Synthesizer.
Designed specifically for players, particularly those who want the highest quality piano sounds and expression, the S90 XS/S70 XS is a performer's dream.
Yet, casual players and hobby musicians will appreciate the exquisite sounds, advanced features and superb playability just as much as top professional artists.Sounds That Satisfy
The best musical instruments start with top-quality sounds, and the S90 XS/S70 XS delivers all that - and more. The S Series features all the Voices, Performances, arps and Virtual Circuit Modeling effects found on the flagship MOTIF XS Music Production Synthesizer. Plus they've added a huge 142 megabytes dedicated exclusively to high-quality piano waveforms, for a total of 456 MB of instrument samples.
Foremost among these new piano sounds are the new samples taken from Yamaha's
world-renowned S6 concert grand piano. These fully capture the richly textured sound of that wonderfully expressive instrument, and provide a warm concert grand piano sound unavailable on any other keyboard. For variation, the MOTIF XS piano based on a Yamaha CFIIIS is also available.
Conventional keyboards in the past had their sounds designed primarily for the listener. This time, however, Yamaha's development team set out to primarily satisfy the player instead. They reasoned that when the performer hears and experiences the best possible sound, the performance would be the best possible, too! The result? The S90 XS/S70 XS is a genuine musician's instrument, one that truly inspires and stimulates the live performer as well as the music creator and arranger.Streamline Your Performance
The S90 XS/S70 XS also lets you quickly and conveniently create your own custom Performances, with the amazingly fast and easy Performance Creator feature. It's never been easier to select a Voice, then quickly program Layers and Splits - even assigning a Drum Voice complete with arps to create your perfect Performance.
Let's say that you're playing a piano Voice and you want to layer a string sound on top of it. Simply press the [LAYER] button, then select the desired Voice category and Voice, and store your new Performance - just a few button presses and you're there!
Plus the panel controls of the S90 XS/S70 XS have been designed and positioned for optimum, intuitive operation, especially for live performance. For example, you can quickly select a Part, turn it on/off, set Arpeggio on/off, switch Arpeggio Hold - all done easily with the top panel controls - and instantly tweak important synth parameters via the Knobs and Sliders. The perfect Performance has never been easier to create and control.Ideal for Live Performers
The S90 XS/S70 XS has a host of other features that live performers will appreciate - such as the combo input jack that accepts mic input. Simply plug in a microphone, tweak the INPUT GAIN knob (while checking the convenient PEAK lamp), and you're all set! Plus, you can use the Control Knobs to finely adjust the volume and even directly apply reverb or chorus to the sound.Recording Direct to USB / Internal Memory
If you've got a USB memory device or thumb drive, you can plug it into the S90 XS/S70 XS and record your performance as audio data. This remarkable feature lets you instantly capture what you play on the keyboard - including arpeggio playback - to your USB device.
If you've connected a microphone or guitar, you can even record your singing or playing as well. You can also record audio directly to the internal flash memory (192 MB) built into the instrument, without the need of a memory device.
And keep in mind that anything you've recorded to the memory device, even audio files created on your computer, can be played back on the S90 XS/S70 XS - which means you can create your own custom audio backing tracks and perform along with them on the S90 XS/S70 XS. For example, you can create a basic song track beforehand, then sing and solo over it during your performance. Or add guitar parts and vocal harmonies to be played back with your live performance. There's also a useful Song Chain function that lets you string together separate recordings and create a convenient backing track "set list" for your gigs.76 & 88 Keyboard
The S70 XS has a 76-Balanced Hammer Effect keyboard in a compact, lightweight design. It's easy to use, exceptionally portable, and absolutely perfect for live performers and gigging musicians.
The S90 XS provides 88 -Balanced Hammer Effect keyboard for those players who need a full-range, full-scale keyboard.Software Integration
Cubase AI - a powerful and versatile audio/MIDI sequencer - is included with the instrument, giving you complete music production capabilities right out of the box. And for editing the S90 XS/S70 XS from your computer, there's the S90 XS/S70 XS Editor. This provides convenient, comprehensive control over absolutely all the sounds, settings and functions of the S70 XS/S90 XS.DAW Remote Function
The S90 XS/S70 XS is a perfect companion for your computer music production system, too, serving both as a master keyboard and a full-function, multi-timbral tone generator. With the DAW Remote function and its 50 different control templates, you get amazingly easy, intuitive control over your main DAW software and VST instruments - directly from the panel controls! Moreover, the Voice Editor and Remote Editor software gives you convenient, comprehensive computer control over all the sounds, settings and functions of the S70 XS/S90 XS.Power Supply:
