In the studio, Yamaha S90 XS 88 Key Hammer Action can serve as a control surface for your audio recording software. It features a “DAW Remote” functionality that has 50 different templates that enable you to control your software directly from the panel controls. You can even customize the control templates to suit your personal workflow. If you don’t currently own recording studio DAW software, it comes with Cubase AI, a professional audio/MIDI sequencer.
On stage, the controls are positioned to be obvious and intuitive. There are dedicated knobs and sliders to adjust key parameters. Layering voices and creating splits can be accomplished with just a few button presses. You can even dummy-proof the S90 XS by disabling all of the panel controls.
The S90 XS from Yamaha is an 88 key balanced hammer action keyboard that’s just as useful on stage as it is in the studio. It features all of the voices, performances, arps, and virtual circuit modeling found in the Motif XS.

Its lush piano sound and Motif capabilities, coupled with other useful features like a microphone/guitar input, audio recording, and computer control surface functionality make the S90 XS a powerful centerpiece in any musician’s life.
