I've had my PSR-510 for about five years and have been very happy with it, but it may be time to move on. I've run out of memory on a few occasions and the midi section of the manual is not helpful. Those are about my only complaints. I've recorded some decent stereo wave files with it and I am becoming more comfortable with its midi capabilities.

Got one. Have had for about 3 yrs. Onboard sequencer is great. Manual is easy

to follow till I got to the midi section. Not easy to understand. I desperatly need help in simple language on how to save recorded songs from page

memory on to disc and then reload those songs back to page memory. Also have music@passport software and would like to know

how to manuscript music from keyboard page memory to m@p program. Can anyone

help me?

The PSR-510 is an ok synth if your first starting out with keyboards and at home recording. The thing is you need to up grade after you have mastered it. I recommend a KORG M-1, that'll get the ball rolling. The PSR is great for teenagers or begginers who are interested in "Techno" "House" type music I have recored over 20 House/Techno tracks using the sequencer on board. I run into the same problem other people do is running out of memory. Thats why you buy a better synth! anyways, its cool too for recording live or playing a gig, I always used preset #49 at the highest octave for that stringy HOUSE sound. If you are interested in DEMO tracks E-mail me with a mailing address and i'll send out a tape, this will give you anm insight of what it can produce. If you really want some good sounds run the synth through an effects rack. -pete nice

When I played in the 70's I had 3 keyboards, when I got

back into the band scene all I could afford was the PSR-510

I use it live, and people can't believe it's what it is.

Taking advantage of the split keys, the sample pads and the

banks, I'm able to pull off songs like No More Tears, pretty

close to the real thing.

My problems with it are:

1) I forgot to leave the powerstrip on when I changed batteries.

(lost my settings)

2) Would have restored from a MIDI dump, but something happened to

my MIDI (maybe cable, maybe card ?)

3) It's starting to go, had to pull it apart to fix it some, but

getting Er1 (which I think is a Keyboard error) when I power up

I'll either get this fixed, or buy a new keyboard (PSR-530?) or both

I love it! Started out with a Yamaha PSR 300, which was ok, but the 510 sounds as good as my Soundblaster 16 ASP with the Waveblaster daughterboard. The only problem I've had was an occasional refusal to fire up which could be remedied by taking the keyboard apart and making sure all wire connections were secure. For the price, it couldn't be beat at the time.
