The Booth #4 | Yamaha PSR SX700 | Back To The 80s

Starring: Chris Hammond | 2019 247 views

@chrisonpiano takes us Back To The 80s with the Yamaha PSR SX700 workstation keyboard. There are some awesome 80s styles on this new ‘Mini Genos” keyboard which are so authentically done you can feel the love they must have been produced with! We try a bit of Queen – Radio GaGa, some Phil Collins – In The Air Tonight, Some Spandau Ballet – True and The Police – Every Breath You Take.

We touch on using vocal backing tracks (with moderate success) where we get Freddie Mercury singing along with the keyboard player. A little experimenting has subsequently got the backing track quantised and working in perfect sync with the keyboard. So look our for part 2 of Back To The 80s coming soon! – Only after we’ve really worn out everyone in the office’s patience by repeatedly playing that Phil Collins drum fill.
