From Our Research Team:
Puts You in Touch with InspirationKeyboardist, be warned... with the S90 XS under your hands, you'll be doing a lot of music-making. Seriously. You've got utterly exceptional sounds inside, so you can go classic on Yamaha's finest grand pianos one minute, then go totally modern, totally synth the next: there are 1,024 voices to explore. No doubt about it, the S90 XS is a dream to take onstage. But Yamaha made this one a double-threat by adding onboard DAW controls and a USB computer connection. You can even connect a USB flash drive and record right from the S90 XS.
Yamaha S90 XS 88-key Keyboard Synthesizer at a Glance:
Dig into 1,024 inspiring, just-make-you-want-to-play sounds
In the S90 XS, you'll find sounds to inspire you. It doesn't matter whether you consider yourself an R&B player, a modern electronica player, a jazz player, a rock player, or what — the sounds in here cover the spectrum... and each one of the 1,024 sounds is just as creativity-lifting as the next. You'll definitely dig Yamaha's brand-new S6 concert grand piano — it's really expressive, and unavailable on any other keyboard. Then, when you take into consideration the 9 types of reverbs and the 22 types of choruses, it becomes even clearer: the S90 XS is 100% a musician's instrument, all about putting you in touch with the way you want to sound.
Plug a microphone in and have at it singer/songwriter-style
We love this. The Yamaha S90 XS gives you an input on the back to plug in a microphone. It's a perfect solution for the stage performer who needs to contribute lead or backup vocals. You have a knob to control the level of your voice — and you can even apply chorus or reverb to give you a cool, custom vocal sound. You're also going to love the microphone input when you've got an idea you want to record — we'll give you more on that below.
Record right to your USB thumb drive. So convenient.
It's never been easier to record your musical ideas, then take them with you! The S90 XS features a spot for your USB thumb drive. Just plug your handy drive in, record your ideas, then take the drive with you. What's even cooler is that you can simultaneously record both your S90 XS and any microphone you have plugged in — it's perfect for the singer/songwriter who needs a really easy way to record song ideas. Just push "record" and you're rolling. There's no frustration here.
Primed for the studio — use it as a remote control for your DAW software
While the S90 XS definitely makes a cool recording solution on its own, you're going to love using this keyboard in your studio. The S90 XS features built-in DAW controls, so you can remotely control playback functions right from your keyboard. You can even control your favorite VST virtual instruments from the S90 XS's DAW Remote panel.

I demoed the S90 to some friends and it always is a jaw dropping experience.
This synth takes some study to get the most out of - and I am still discovering more - endless array of possibilities.
One other thing to note is the feel of the action. It's the smoothest feeling weighted keys I have ever put my hands on. close [-]
The best so far...
by Robert from N CaliforniaAfter having owned three generations of Roland RD700s, with great trepidation I sold my Roland RD700GX to get this Yamaha S90XS and I have no reason to look back. It is a wonderful musical instrument... read more [+]! A joy to play and explore! I'm real finicky about my sound and loved the Pha III keyboard on the Roland but was looking to make a change to explore new things. There is a great debate between whether this is better or a step back from the S90ES model. Although it is subjective and I respect the opinions of others my take on it is that this is a step up. I'm referring to the piano voices available among many other things - all of which i consider to be improvements. I've recorded with the ES and having played it extensively I can say that, in my opinion, this board is a distinct improvement. The piano tones are more balanced and richer in their ability to convey nuance and dynamics without becoming harsh. This was a problem I kept encountering with the ES in the studio - too brittle. Depending on your needs, if you're looking for a great professional stage piano I suspect you'll be very happy with this Yamaha S90XS. close [-]
