I use a K2600, a Fantom G, a Triton, and this S90 sounds better out of the box than all of them. On top of everything, I paid $500 used! Keyboard action is the closest thing to a Yamaha or Steinway grand piano. Sounds are rich & warm, but can cut if you tweak them. Unbelievable that a 4 or 5 year old unit rocks so hard. I'll be checking out the Motif stuff for my next purchase.

I think the keyboard is great but the manual is the worst of the worst. Has anyone done a video manual? If so, I would be the first to buy one.

THIS THING is outdated, buy the S90-ES, it has a much greater piano, even if you could get this for a good price, it is not worth it, because piano on this thing sucks. don't be fooled, read the reviews on harmony-central and compare to these idiotic ones. You think piano sounds nice? that's ridiculous. In the moment I start to play on my real piano it is like night and day. Every chord on the S90 sounds not realisitic. Harmonies sound poor. Other sounds on this thing are pretty fantastic though. I am going to sell mine to get a S90ES with piano resonance simulation.

The s90 is now decorating my house for a few months: the keyboard feels great, the machine sounds great, but the manual is f*@&%-terrible. Can anyone help me out? Does anyone know how to: 1. Get the sounds you want in the order you want to be able to switch fast and accurately in a live situation? 2. Edit the existing sounds and have them available? 3. How to make a back-up of the sound-bank mentioned under 1. and the edited sounds mentioned under 2.?

Great keyboard feel, fairly good sounds, nice piano (although it needs tweaking to be really useful), but the awful user interface killed it for me. I'm keeping it because I like the keyboard feel (I've had it for a year or so now) but my old Korg Wavestation has a better user interface. I was also disappointed to see Yamaha releasing new keyboards rather than fixing the problems/updating the existing S90. This is probably my first and last Yamaha synth.
