Yamaha PSS-20 (monophonic squarewave keyboard with nice electronic percussion)

This small, white squarewave keyboard from 1989 has 2 big silicone rubber buttons ("SELECT GREEN", "SELECT BLUE") those are to be pressed together with keys to select functions. Its coarse electronic percussion are interesting for tekkno.

main features:


The main voices are nothing really great; they resemble Casio VL-Tone but sound thinner and harsher. The hollow and sonorous "vibes" sounds interesting; "banjo" and "marimba" ring automatically. The rhythms of this small tablehooter are very impulsive and quite interesting for tekkno- like things (although there is no tekkno base drum included).

A more advanced instrument with similar timbres and simple synthesizer is the Yamaha PSS-80.
