Yamaha S90XS Music Synthesizer
Modular Synthesis Plug-in System
This keyboard came to us as a trade in and is in good condition both cosmetically and functionally. There are several scratches here and there mostly on the end caps but overall it looks pretty good for a keyboard of its age. It has the newest OS already installed and we're including a power cord. The only issue we found is that a couple of the amber lights didn't come on with the button but the button works correctly.

Keyboardist, 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.

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.

It is important to remember that when buying a used keyboard it may not operate or look exactly like a new one. Used keyboards develop wear over time that can cause such items as function buttons, knobs, sliders etc. to fail to operate as smoothly or easily as when they were new. Our technician does check these items and if they are deemed unusable they are replaced but some function buttons may require more pressure or manipulation to make the appropriate changes. Cosmetically your used keyboard may have scuffs, scratches, cracks to plastic pieces, discolored keys or other visual impairments that might not show up in the photos. We try to mention any obvious visual imperfections but may not consider them serious enough to post in the listing.
