      Superior sound, control, and playability optimized for the performer.

      The Yamaha S70 XS Music Synthesizer is an exceptional keyboard for performing and creating. It's a truly realistic, naturally expressive keyboard with a true piano sound. Its highlights include convenient, real-time controls for adjusting the sound as you play, the ability to audio record to USB memory, extensive computer music features, ease of use, and compact size and portability. The Yamaha S70 XS keyboard is designed specifically for players who want high-quality piano sounds and expressions; casual players and hobby musicians will appreciate the synthesizer's exquisite sounds, advanced features, and superb playability just as much as professional artists.

      Sounds that satisfy
      The S Series features all the voices, performances, arpeggios, and virtual circuit modeling effects found on Yamaha's flagship Motif XS Music Production Synthesizer. The S70 XS synth adds a huge 142 megabytes dedicated exclusively to high-quality piano waveforms, for a total of 456 megabytes of instrument samples. Foremost among these piano sounds are the samples taken from Yamaha's world-renowned S6 concert grand piano. This synthesizer fully captures the richly textured sound of the wonderfully expressive S6, and provides a warm, concert grand piano sound.

      In the past, conventional keyboards had sounds designed primarily for the listener. The S70 XS synth, however, was designed to satisfy the player. Yamaha reasoned that when a performer hears and experiences the best possible sound, their performance would be the best possible too. The result is the Yamaha S70 XS, a genuine musician's instrument that truly inspires the live performer as well as the music creator and arranger.

      Streamline your performance
      The S70 XS synth lets you quickly and conveniently create your own custom performances with the amazingly fast and easy Performance Creator feature. Select a voice, then quickly program layers and splits—even assign a drum voice complete with arpeggios to create your perfect performance. Let's say that you're playing a piano voice and you want to layer a string sound on top of it. Simply press the layer button, then select the desired voice category and voice, and store your new performance with the press of a button.

      The panel controls of the S70 XS have been designed and positioned for optimum, intuitive operation, especially for live performances. For example, with the top-panel controls you can quickly select a part, turn it on and off, set arpeggios and turn them on and off, and switch on arpeggio hold, in addition to instantly tweaking important synthesizer parameters using the knobs and sliders.

      Ideal for live performers
      The S70 XS has a host of other features that live performers will appreciate, such as the combo input jack that accepts mic input. Just plug in a microphone, adjust the input gain knob (while checking the convenient peak lamp),
      and you're set. You can also use the control knobs to finely adjust the volume and directly apply reverb or chorus to the sound.

      Recording direct to USB/internal memory
      If you've got a USB memory device or thumb drive, you can plug it into the Yamaha S70 XS and record your performance as audio data. This remarkable feature lets you instantly capture what you play on the keyboard (including arpeggio playback) to your USB device. If you've connected a microphone or guitar, you can record your singing or playing as well. You can also record audio directly to the internal flash memory (192 megabytes) built into the instrument without the need of a memory device. Keep in mind that anything you've recorded to the memory device (even audio files created on your computer) can be played back on the S70 XS, which means you can create your own custom audio backing tracks and perform along with them. For example, you can create a basic song track beforehand, then sing and solo over it during your performance or add guitar parts and vocal harmonies to be played back during your live performance. There's also a useful song chain function that lets you string together separate recordings and create a convenient backing track "set list" for your gigs.

      76-key balanced keyboard
      The S70 XS is a 76-key balanced hammer effect keyboard in a compact, lightweight design. It's easy to use, exceptionally portable, and absolutely perfect for live performers and gigging musicians.

      Software integration
      The S70 XS keyboard is also a perfect companion for your computer music production system, serving both as a master keyboard and a full-function, multitimbral tone generator. With the Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) remote function and its 50 different control templates, you get amazingly easy, intuitive control over your main DAW software and Virtual Studio Technology (VST) instruments directly from the panel controls. Moreover, the Voice Editor and Remote Editor software gives you convenient, comprehensive computer control over all the sounds, settings, and functions of the Yamaha S70 XS.

      Pretty good keyboard

      By Isaac Trevino

      from Houston

      Comments about Yamaha S70XS 76-Key Balanced Weighted Hammer Action Synthesizer:

      This product is realy good. The way the weighted keyboard feels is a lot smoother than that of a Motif, and even an S90. It is a tad bit heavy, but which quality keyboard isn't? The piano sounds are very crisp and smooth. It also has excellent EP, snyths, and organ sounds. I would recommend to anyone. A excellent price for such a aweomse keyboard. It's pretty much a steal.

      Great...Awesome...Best Piano Sound Ever!!!

      By JaredPlaysKeys

      from Georgia

      Comments about Yamaha S70XS 76-Key Balanced Weighted Hammer Action Synthesizer:

      Overall I love this keyboard and I will never be able to part from it. Yamaha really did a great job and put a lot of work into this keyboard. THANKS YAMAHA!
      The Yamaha S90 XS is totally worth every cent for what you get. The S6 piano is a very well sampled piano sound that is only on this board. I travel in a christian band and I usually don't like having to carry bulky/heavy instruments but this one is totally worth the sacrifice because of the great piano and synth sounds in the board. The only 76 weighted keyboard that is so well made that I know of that is on the market right now. You will not regret buying this keyboard. From christian artist to secular artist...this board won't let you down!
      Built to last for a looooong time. A little heavy for a 76 key but it is worth the sacrifice
      The yamaha s90/s70xs is very generously priced. Most keyboards like this would cost a lot more.

      The greatest thing... ever.

      By S70XSisamazing

      from Long Island, NY

      Comments about Yamaha S70XS 76-Key Balanced Weighted Hammer Action Synthesizer:

      I have had the Yamaha S70XS for a little over a year now. I looked into buying a synthesizer over the summer and did a lot of research. I first heard about the XS through the Summer NAMM 2009. I quickly decided that this is what I wanted. This is worth every cent of what your paying for. I use my S70XS for both composing and performing and it's features, ease of use and sound quality are superior to anything else I have ever played. I would recommend this synth to any experienced piano player.A few things to know:This thing is not light. If you want a stand you are going to need not only a stand that supports its weight but one that WILL NOT WOBBLE.At first it might be difficult to navigate through the voices and performance modes ect.. it will become extremely easy once you use it for a day or two, the manual is well written and helpful.This is totally worth 6 stars but it didn't let me go past 5.

      SO CLOSE....

      By Grumpyoldude

      from Okla. City

      Comments about Yamaha S70XS 76-Key Balanced Weighted Hammer Action Synthesizer:

      Yamaha Corp. is to be congratulated on a very effectively redesigned user interface and the sounds are pure ear candy. And the action - well, they build pianos don't they? There's just one major flaw: IT'S TOO FREAKIN' BIG!! One of the primary considerations in choosing a 76-key instrument over an 88 is the gain of that precious extra 5~7 inches of stage area. there's no defensible reason why a 76-key instrument needs to be 52 inches wide. Had the controller wheels been moved to the upper panel and that ridiculously wide left end block been scrapped, I would have sold some family members to buy one. As it is, it's not appreciably smaller (or lighter) than my MO8. Sorry, Yamaha, no sale. (Yeah, the 2.5 rating is for execution) And after all those years of waiting and hoping....(sob)
