Yamaha Portasound PS-1 keyboard demo - "Lens Flare"


Published on Oct 6, 2019 Alfonse

"Yamaha Portasound PS-1 keyboard (1980)

All sounds you hear in the track were made using the PS-1 and run through various single effects pedals (TC Electronic Sub Up octaver for bass notes and for a floaty lead part, the very synth-friendly Yamaha SDS CH-10MII chorus pedal, and the Vestax DDX vintage digital delay). Parts were recorded to a DAW, where compression, EQ, and reverb were added as required. Individual drum hits were sampled from slowed-down rhythms and processed to allow fresh beats to be built, rather than using the rhythms found on the PS-1 itself.

The aim of these videos is to see what you can create using sounds from retro classic keyboards together with current production tools. One of the first three portable keyboards that Yamaha produced for the home market in 1980, the PS-1 was the most compact, with only 4 voices and 4 rhythms to work with.
