I Have a PSR-500 that I use when I Play-out with my band. I also have a PSR-47

I run them through a Quadraverb and I get a good sound. But when it comes to recording

to my pc and playback they stink, I know there not GM but in todays world and Win95's IDF

you need a good General Midi setup. I wish I could convert it to GM or change my

Midimap like I did in Win3.1, but I don't think it's possible.

The PSR-500 is definately a fun keyboard and a great tool for getting familiar with midi and making electronic music in general. I've been using mine almost every day for a year and its time to move on to bigger and better things but the PSR has gotten me totally addicted to making music. Some of the sounds can be a little hokey but putting it through a cheap guitar distortion or FX pedal makes it sound nearly professional. I'm probably going to buy a better synth pretty soon but I'm definately going to keep my PSR as a slave synth. Make sure to check out the really high and low ends of all the sounds as some of them sound really cool at theses frequencies. This works because of the fact that all the sounds are sampled and start to fall apart when you play them really high or really low. Anybody who is interested in electronic music but doesn't want to dish out the money for lots of really expensive equipment should check this keyboard out. Also, I highly reccomend that if you're trying to write songs on these that you hook them up to your computer or sequencer and use Cakewalk or something. The reason for this is that (at least on my keyboard) the power supply jack gets loose ALL THE TIME and anything I've saved in the keyboards RAM gets lost.

I think the PSR 500 is an acceptable keyboard for beginners, but you'll soon want more.

The sound is quite good, especially the 00 (piano) sound. Nowadays keyboards sound a lot better of course...

Second hands are not expensive and plenty! You don't want to use this keyboard in a band, though...

I've used this keyboard 2/3 nights a week for over 5 yrs, It is starting to wear out, mostly the

rubberized contacts. I'm looking for tech info re parts, or reconditioning tips.

So far it has taken a beatin, but it has hung in there.

Buck for buck, a pretty good buy.

Please send info re parts list.
