  • Page 3: Voices

    These Voices capture the dynamic textures and subtle nuances of electric instruments—thanks to a huge amount of memory and some very sophisticated programming. Sweet! These acoustic instrument sounds also benefit from Yamaha’s sophisticated technology—and feature a sound so finely detailed and natural, you’ll swear you’re playing the real thing! Drums Various drum and percussion sounds are assigned to individual keys, letting you play the sounds from the keyboard.
  • Page 4: Selecting Gm/Xg Or Other Voices From The Panel

    Press the desired [A]–[J] button to call up the Voice Selection display of GM/XG Voices, GM2 Voices, etc. (PSR-S910) You can find the “Legacy” folder in this display. This folder contains previous Yamaha keyboards’ Voices (such as PSR-S900, PSR-S700, NOTE etc.) for data compatibility with other models.
  • Page 5: Effect-Related Settings

    Effect-Related Settings Setting the Touch Sensitivity of the Keyboard You can adjust the touch response of the instrument (how the sound responds to the way you play the keys). The touch sensitivity type becomes the common setting for all Voices. NOTE Some Voices are purposely designed without touch sensitivity, in order to emulate the true characteristics of the actual instrument (for example, conventional organs, which have no touch response).
  • Page 6: Selecting The Harmony/Echo Type

    Selecting the Harmony/Echo type You can select the desired Harmony/Echo effect from a variety of types. When the [MONO] button is turned to on or you use the Super Articulation Voices, the Harmony/Echo effect may not work properly. NOTE Turn the [HARMONY/ECHO] button on. Call up the operation display.
  • Page 7 ■ Echo Types When one of the Echo Types is selected, the corresponding effect (echo, tremolo, trill) is applied to the note played in the right-hand section of the keyboard in time with the currently set tempo, regardless of the [ACMP] and the LEFT part on/off status.
  • Page 8: Pitch-Related Settings

    Pitch-Related Settings Fine-tuning the Pitch of the Entire Instrument You can fine-tune the pitch of the entire instrument—useful when you play the PSR-S910/S710 along with other instruments or CD music.

    Creating/Editing Styles (Style Creator) Sections Channels Styles are made up of fifteen different sections (Intro, Main, Ending, etc.) and each section has eight separate channels. With the Style Creator feature, you can create a Style by separately recording the channels, or by importing pattern data from other existing Styles.
  • Page 23: Realtime Recording

    Realtime Recording In the BASIC Page, you can create a single Style by recording the individual channels one-by-one, using realtime recording. Realtime Recording Characteristics—Loop Recording and Overdub Recording • Loop Recording Style playback repeats the rhythm patterns of several measures in a “loop,” and Style recording is also done using loops.
  • Page 24 Use the [5 ▲▼]/[6 ▲▼] buttons to determine the length (number of measures) of the selected section, then press the [D] (EXECUTE) button to actually enter the specified length. Specify the channel to be recorded by simultaneously holding down the [F] (REC CH) button and pressing the appropriate numbered button, [1 ▼]–[8 ▼].
  • Page 25 Start recording by pressing the STYLE CONTROL [START/STOP] button. Playback of the specified section starts. Since the accompaniment pattern plays back repeatedly in a loop, you can record individual sounds one by one, listening to the previous sounds as they play. For information on recording to channels other than the rhythm channels (RHY1, 2), refer to the section “Rules when recording non-rhythm channels”...
  • Page 26: Step Recording

    Step Recording In the EDIT Page, you can record notes with absolutely precise timing. This Step Recording procedure is essentially the same as that for Song Recording • In the Song Creator, the End Mark position can be changed freely; in the Style Creator, it cannot be changed. This is because the length of the Style is automatically fixed, depending on the selected section.
  • Page 27 Select the channel for which you wish to replace the pattern by using the [A]–[D] and [F]–[I] buttons. Call up the Style Selection display by pressing the same button again. Select the Style containing the pattern you want to replace in the Style Selection display.
