The Booth #2 | Yamaha PSR SX-900 | Using vocal tracks with onboard backings

Chris Hammond

It’s episode #2 of The Booth where we let our musicians free on the latest toys (Keyboards and pianos just to be clear not things like model train sets). – SEE THE FULL VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.

This time David is using the new Yamaha PSR SX-900 digital workstation and integrating come vocal track (that’t just a pro name for a recording of someone’s singing). It’s made very easy to do this on the SX900 and SX700 as you can download the vocal track as a .wav or mp3 file, transfer it to a USB stick and then insert into the keyboard. You can then use the onboard features like backing styles and other things to sync-up an play a awesome sounding performance.

He plays Symphony by Clean Bandit (Zara Larsson), Shape Of You – Ed Sheeran, This Is Me from The Greatest Showman, (Keala Settle) and OneRepublic – Counting Stars. There really is massive scope for being creative. The SX700 and SX900 have clearly been designed for creative minded people who need maximum flexibility.

The touchscreen interface on the SX900 (also on SX700) makes jobs like this very easy to do, particularly as using a touchscreen is almost second nature now and returning to the cash-point machines style interfaces seen on keyboards like Yamaha Tyros feels distinctly old fashioned now!


You might have noticed that in the bottom right of the video is a 360 degree walkaround of the SX900 keyboard. This is from a video we made which you can watch by clicking here. You can see how slimline and compact the SX-900 is and why people are calling it the ‘mini Genos’. The speakers are built in and it’s so lightweight it’s a doddle to cart around.

We look forward to having much more fun with this keyboard in The Booth. Look out for a new member joining us too.

Important Notes

In order to maximise ventilation, we are using our store foyer for demonstrations. The space restriction of our foyer area means that we are able to offer the demonstration of up to three upright digital pianos at any one time, so on booking, we will clarify with you which models you are interested in seeing and/or assist with your choices if necessary.

We are asking that, upon arrival, all customers (who are medically able to) wear a face mask for the duration of their visit. We will also provide sanitising hand gel which we will ask you to apply. The NHS Track and Trace scanning code will also be available.

Part-exchange / Sell

We offer competitive part-exchange values, and we also buy digital pianos, keyboards and organs for cash.
