I've had the PSR-510 for at least 8 years now.. I love the thing, and only recently have I started back heavy on it. It's amazing. My buddy just bought himself a KORG 4600 or somethin.. blah I don't remmeber aha it was $4600. ANYWAY it's nice and all, but PSR-510 has MANY more features I like on it (the sounds are low quality = only downside).

ANYWAY. PLEASE SOMEONE!! Tell me WHAT software to use these days to hook it up to my computer!?!? I have an SBLIVE X-Gamer, and the PSR 510. ANd some Midi cable I got years and years ago. I had set this up when I was 7 to my computer through a Soundblaster 16.. but can't do it today. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE email me saying what I have to dO!! Thanks SOOO much.

I like it's concept that every function has it's own button, not like they make synths today that you have to dig through menus. Only gripe is some combination of buttons are to far apart so you have to use two hands. Also you have to stop playback before you go to another track in style recording mode which kills the creativity procces. In use and soundwise it covers a large teritory of different styles. Of course since it was made in 94 there are no modern dance, hip-hop styles, but for playing oldies its just right.

I have this PSR-510 keyboard for since 1996, and I have used it in two of my albums:"Sampler Of Insecurity" and "New Version Of A Brain operation". The PSR-510 is a real good machine although its price and look doesn't show. In 2001, I was recording another album called "Escape from The Ego's Tyranny" with the help of all these new technology music tools such as AKAI samples, Virtual Analog Sequencers, Sonic Foundry softwares,etc and a PSR-510! If you spend time with this keyboard you can find many interesting things inside. thanks to YAMAHA!

I bought this keyboard as a low cost alternative to jam live with. I like the ability to blend 2 voices at once. I have used this on various tracks of my newest CD. Excellent drum sounds. Excellent synth sounds. I wish this unit had a ribbon controller and modulation. Atleast there is a pitch bend wheel. Paid $200 and I in materialistic bliss.

I am a big beleiver in the PSR series. I think for the money you get 16 MIDI channel multi-timbrality and 32 note polyphony, great sounds and endless bells and whistles including blow away auto-rhythms....they are just great. However, it seems to me that the PSR-510 is an underacheiver compared to the PSR-500. The PSR-500 was the first of this line and I think they made a special effort on that blew me away. By comparison, with the PSR-510 you get General MIDI mapping...and that's good, but you also get less fidelity in the sounds and mine crashes regularly in a simple MIDI setup. No keyboard should ever crash!!!!! No excuses possible! PSR-510 is ok, but if a PSR-500 or PSR-85 (same thing) is an option...I would go for that provided you are handy with the MIDI mapper and can map out a general MIDI specification.
