Scale Setting Panel Buttons
PSR-OR700 scale tuning display The PSR-OR700 has an intuitive control section located on the left side of the panel for changing tuning on the fly. Designed to be incredibly flexible, the player simply presses one or more tuning buttons to, for example, lower that note a quarter tone. Below the tuning buttons are memory buttons for instant recall of the player's favorite or most used tuning settings.

PSR-OR700 Styles First introduced in Tyros, MegaVoice brings a new level of realism to the PSR-OR700 keyboard. The MegaVoices feature various playing techniques and performance sounds – such as finger slides and fret noise on guitar Voices – designed specifically to enhance playback of the built-in Styles. Simply hold down a chord while you play, and enjoy some of the most astonishingly realist, expressive accompaniment you've ever heard.

USB connectivity
The PSR-OR700 has 2 USB ports on the back, USB TO HOST and USB to DEVICE.

* USB to HOST is plug and play simple for recording and playing back MIDI files from your computer.
* PSR-OR700 Compact Flash USB to DEVICE is for connecting optional peripheral USB devices like floppy disk drives, thumb drives and hard drives for storing data like song and Style files.

Large 5.7" QVGA screen

The screen on the PSR-OR700 is able to show you mixer settings at a glance, the chords you are playing, what sounds are on the right and left side of the keyboard, what Style or MIDI file is currently playing, virtual drawbars, score and lyrics. The bottom line is that since it's your window into how the music is being created, you might as well make it a big one.

Virtual Drawbar Organ
PSR-OR700 Drawbar LCD DisplayFor that great vintage organ sound, the Organ Flutes on the PSR-OR700 use Modeling Technology – independently oscillating voices to simulate the rotating tone generation wheels found in classic organs. In true Yamaha fashion, you can select the organ type, control nine virtual drawbars, rotary speed and type, percussive attack and length and vibrato on/off, depth and speed. Then, save your settings and recall your favorite organ voices with one button push.
