This is a brilliant sounding keyboard for Electric Piano, Strings, Guitar, Synth and Percussive Sounds. Where it fails is the sequencer. My brother had the Technics KN1000 before he bought this keyboard, and although it predates the Yamaha by about three years, the sequencer's editing functions on that machine were a lot more flexible than on this board. Try before you buy.

Great for what I use it - good basic sounds via that in main are great standard. Pieano sounds are great - I use two Trace Elliot 100 acoustic amps on either side for small hall work.

Used the multi track to produce soundtrack for tv show - was excellent when got hang of it. Sure most folks only use 50% of capability, I maybe use less but 100% for what it does. Dont be put off by PSR initials, this is a pro instrument.

I got mine for about US$750. A beautiful sounding keyboard, most of the sounds are really good, I have had it now for about 2 years and it has served its purpose as a midi controller and often for its sounds. Each of the 740(430XG) odd sounds are able to be modified and layered. Sequencer is alright though I use my computer for that. Vocal Harmony is brilliant and helps to keep good harmonies in a mix. It is indispensible for me because I turn to it to add the finishing touches to my mix.

good all round keyboard only thing that lets it down is the "on-board" sampler.

This board in my opinion is quite good. Has many good strong points and weak points. Well for one thing it's fabously heavy for a 61-key.(I know it has speakers) but the letters `PSR' just puts me down...(like it's siblings..psr300+'s)

Sounds are great all around. Beautiful strings (even better than my XP-80 ones) Pads are great, others are fine. Piano sounds are where the letters "PSR" bring to mind. The piano sounds need major work. But on the other hand the EP's are so good. Nice and fat EP's there. Good organs.

The other good stuff on this is the drums and multi-pads. Very nice. Sequencer is something I havnt used. Too slow, and impractical on floppy disks. The mic-insert is good. Even some guitarists prefer the guitar plugged on the PSR. Mic-effects are way cool. EQ for everything..

Man, if I could buy the trinity over this I would! (I feel so sorry for the other guy..) But since it's mostly plastic, keys are too soft, body is damaged easily.

I have been using this for 3 years and i think I took the sounds on it for granted. Now my main board is a xp-80, I'm shocked of the lack of EP's I get on it. Too bad the PSR8000 is not expandable.,

This is a perfect 2nd keyboard for any band...beautiful. Have the money for it? then go buy the trinity,. Believe me when I say it.
