it is a good keyboard for its age the piano sounds are a bit old now as the newer pianos sound way way different. the 12 string guitar is ok but as i never heard one before i dont know the difference

but it is so old the keys are to small for my fingers now and it has no ports for a sustaino peddle. i personaly wish to replace it with a DGX SERIES PIANO/KEYBOARD like a 520 or a 505 or maby a korg piano/keyboard

I'm sat here with this little baby on my lap as I type. I've only picked up the piano and keys this past year, after playing guitar, bass and drums and i wanted some weird sounds, I'm a big fan of Radiohead and Mogwai, and to be honest I only use about 4 of the settings on this thing and they're in my Vector too so i can blend them: Synth Chorus, Synth Flute 1, Synth Flute 2 and Synth Pan voice. I've had this thing for about a week, I 'borrowed' it from my college's music department and have been hammering away at those synths ever since, I am a confessed synth novice and have no idea how genuinely synth this thing is, but i certainly do enjoy it. I haven't even worked out how the 8-track thing works, but when I do I guarentee I'll be on it for a few weeks. I don't care how dumb I'd look, if this thing sounds half as good through a PA I'd use this thing live straight away.

This here is no synth, this is a light-weight rice-made Jap keyboard. However a lot of this little sucker's sounds are damn good. I sometimes play it still, and the vector function does good for some kinds of music. And the electronic drums can be ok too. Bada boom!

the pss 790 was my second ever synthesizer (besides my Commodore C=64 of course ;) ), i loved and enjoyed it for many years. i got it when i was 10 years or so...no clue about MIDI or anything :) but also back then i was able to use it intentional thanks to its design. a very useful synthie! its too bad it broke some day, i would love to add it to my large homestudio nowadays and rock away on it :)! i now got the roland XP10, also a nice allround-synthie , 2 novation bass-stations going with a jomoxAirBase and some other stuff...lol...and still i´d love to have my yamaha pss-790 back!!!

I like this board.Sure,it's tiny but it's incredibly easy to use all the features on it.It has 99 different voices which can be mixed together on the vector.The pitch blend really helps too.You can create some very bizarre sounds,especially if you use the transpose feature with the pitch blend.Play a voice very high or very low for some good sounds.It has about 8 channels to record on too.Not tried it live yet,though.It may be a bit small!
