I recently acquired a S90xs. This is my first Yamaha board.

What is the best piano sound on the S90xs for Black Gospel music?

Thank you.

I own a Motif XF which has most of the same sounds. I would think these would be good for starters. EQ to taste.

A06 Piano Rock S6

A07 Bright Piano S6 (not on my Motif, but I'm guessing it has similar qualities to the Rock Grand Piano below - different piano sample)

A08 Rock Grand Piano

Didn't know gospel music had a particular color. Also, best is subjective. I would try all the internal piano patches and decide for myself which sound I preferred for the style of music you are playing.

I'd say a proficient Gospel pianist who understands the style would produce the best sound. wink Other than that, just find one that's full and dynamic. Let your ears and fingers decide. cool

Mine. I'll see if I can find a link. I doubt the sever where I stored them is still running. David Farhner did some nice mods to the S6 pianos fixing the weird unevenness in the bass. This was quite a while ago.

Rock Grand was my go to on that piano. Loved the way that the L and wasn't too powerful. Seems kinda bright on it's own but it sits nicely in the band without your L hand conflicting with the bass or guitar.

Thank you, everyone. Great info. CEB: I read that entire post. Thank you for sharing.

I played around with the sounds at Rehearsal Saturday night. Yesterday at church I decided to use the Rock Grand.

Iconoclast - I agree. It's a bit bright, but it cuts through the mix better. For talk music, I'll switch to a patch on my mainstage (pretty simple music Lush Piano). But for everything else, I loved the Rock Grand yesterday.
