This keyboard rocks my world!

Phat James, Yamaha
11 May 2014
  • Summary: When I was shopping for a keyboard my main concern was getting whatever sounded and felt the most like an acoustic grand piano. I had a hunch that a Yamaha product would take the cake since they make some beautiful sounding concert grand pianos and I was right. I tested this baby out along with several other keyboards at my local music shop and It sounded incredible! So responsive! And the action feels so realistic! Needless to say, I was sold.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Quality Construction, Realistic Feel, Top Notch Sounds
  • Cons: Heavy bulky

Performance Presets are bands in a box

BoogieBeau, Yamaha
23 July 2013
  • Summary: I also own a Roland RD700 NX and purchased the Yamaha S90 XS about a year afterwards. The keyboard action is a tad lighter on the S90XS which is favorable for my 62 year old fingers. The large difference between the boards is the 7000 some preset intelligent chord and drum arpeggios that come with the S90 XS. You can save a set of 5 of the arpeggio with a Performance setup and switch between the arps for use as an intro, section A, etc. and ending.

A Giant Leap from Previous 'S-Series'

TheDukester, Yamaha
18 December 2012
  • Summary: For me this was a 'Giant Leap' from the S80 I performed with for almost 10 years. I interfaced it with the Motif ES initially and now with the Motif XS. It is a 'splended marriage'. The 'feel' is excellent. About as close as an acoustic feel as you can get. Sound quality is outstanding on the various Voices I need for my presentation and editing capabilities allow me to customize Voices I might not have otherwise considered using.
  • Pros: Flexible, Lots Of Options, Portable, Responsive / Good Action

User Review

Martin550, thomann
13 October 2009
  • Summary: YAMAHAS jüngster Sproß kommt als Ablösung für den ES daher und der Name legt auch schon Nahe, was hauptsächlich dahinter steckt: wie beim hauseigenen Schlachtschiff MOTIF ist der Generationswechsel zur XS-Serie nun beim S90 angekommen. Ausgerüstet mit eine angenehm spielbaren, gewichteten Hammermechanik-Tastatur, fühlt sich das gesamte Instrument sehr wertig an.
