4.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BELIEVE THIS INSTRUMENT LETS YOU RECORD AND TRANSFER AUDIO TO YOUR PC!!, March 27, 2012
The keyboard is nice and the sound options are great. HOWEVER, in a classic case of semi-false advertising, any notion that the user can transfer recordings FROM the tracks on the keyboard TO his/her PC is FALSE. YOU CANNOT TRANSFER AUDIO FILES FROM THIS KEYBOARD to a PC. The keyboard ALSO does NOT produce "midi" files (which are NOT audio, in case your musical instrument dealer fails to make that clear) TO the PC -- all you will be able to see on the keyboard after you install the Musicsoft download is a useless .BUP file -- a backup file that you can neither open nor move onto your PC. Very annoying if you had the wrong impression (as I did) that the instrument would allow me to play, record, and transfer to audio editing software on my PC for easy track writing. The ONLY solution to this is to get something like a stereo audio adapter or "studio" with a USB output to the computer, and that has ports to plug in a two-ended 1/4" cable from your keyboard so that you can record from the instrument DIRECTLY into the computer. Will cost you an extra $60-100 bucks, and all Yamaha will tell you is that their lower-end models don't provide the function the manufacturer misleadingly makes you think they are supposed to. So if you really want to record from the instrument, factor in that extra cost.
