Yamaha S80 88-Key Synthesizer onboard sounds are some of the best available on the market today. The essential voices you use most – organs, brass, strings, guitars and basses as well as a complete collection of pianos (including stereo-sampled pianos!) – are packed into the S80’s wave memory.
A full-sized keyboard that gives you the response and feel you need to capture all the emotion and dynamics of your playing. It offers superb weighted action, an incredible-sounding selection of familiar voices, 64 notes of polyphony and 16 multi-timbral parts.
When your music calls for a different tonal perspective, the S80’s Modular Synthesis Plug-in System opens the door to new and exciting synthesizer possibilities. For musicians who are used to playing on a real piano, the touch of the keyboard on the S80 is a dream come true.
Engineers at Yamaha took great care in designing the keyboard to deliver the same feel and expression as an acoustic piano. As a result, the S80 responds to the finest dynamics of your playing, from the lightest pianissimos to firmly struck fortissimos.
Yamaha S80 88-Key Synthesizer features a dynamic digital effects processor and an incredible 64 notes of polyphony and a full array of high quality drum sounds. Resonant filters add dynamics and realism to a keyboard’s sound and are a critical feature for any synthesizer.
The S80 takes the filter concept to whole new level by giving you 12 types of “multi-mode” resonant filters. Multi-mode filters allow you to assign a combination of filters to a voice; (e.g. a low pass and high pass filter.) This provides you with more expressive, authentic-sounding voices, plus adds more depth and punch to synthetic timbres as well.
