The MegaVoices feature various playing articulations, techniques and performance sounds. For example, guitar MegaVoices can have hammer-on, slide and mute sounds to go along with soft, medium and loud sounds with strumming and fret noise, all at the same time. Put it all together in a Yamaha Guitar-Enhanced Style and enjoy some of the most astonishingly realistic, expressive accompaniment you've ever heard!

The PSR-S650 provides an exceptionally wide variety of realistic sounding Voices in all instrument categories. With a total of 359 amazingly authentic instrument Voices (including 9 MegaVoices), and 181 accompaniment Styles, you can enjoy regionally unique music—and have more fun.
You can configure the keyboard’s tuning to match the music you're playing with one of the nine preset custom tunings, like Arabic or Pythagorean - or by creating your own!
