Yamaha's PSRE453 portable arranger keyboard is your toolbox for making powerful music. This 61-key touch response keyboard features powerful on-board speakers and easy-to-use professional features like assignable Live Control knobs, DJ pattern mode, and USB to Device connectivity.
The PSRE453 includes over 750 pro quality voices, including acoustic and electric instruments, featuring 8 Sweet! voices and 3 Cool! voices which use Yamaha's advanced sampling technologies for the most realistic sound possible. 48-note polyphony allows for the performance of complex passages without dropped notes.
6W + 6W amplifiers drive the high-definition 12 cm Bass Reflexed speakers, offering stunning clarity and detail.
Two assignable, real-time control knobs let you filter and adjust your sound just like an analog synthesizer. 10 brand new DSP effects can be assigned and controlled by the knobs for dynamic and expressive live performance. The Pitch Bend wheel adjusts the pitch of the sound bringing voices like the Guitar, Sax and Trumpet to life.
The PSRE453 features audio transfer through the USB TO HOST terminal (For iOS device connection, refer to the "iPhone / iPad Connection Manual"). You can record your performance to your computer or smart device. Connecting to your iOS device adds a new dimension of MIDI control with apps. Connect an external audio player to the AUX IN jack and you can play along with your favorite tunes. The built-in, advanced Melody Suppressor lowers the volume of vocals and melody lines of the original recordings, leaving that part open for you to play (Depending on the song, the volume of the melody part may not be affected.).
USB TO DEVICE terminal on the instrument lets you load and save your settings and songs to a USB flash drive, as well as transfer data from your PC.
The Pattern function puts a wealth of powerful loops and beats at your fingertips, allowing you to instantly create dynamically varied music on the fly like a DJ. And, for even more authentic performance, try the Crossfade and Retrigger functions.
Tap into instant inspiration with the Arpeggio function, which has been improved for smoother playability. Hold Mode and Allocated key-range free your hands, allowing you to improvise over the pattern. The 150 Arpeggio patterns adjust and morph around the notes and chords you play on the keyboard allowing for almost limitless creativity.
The Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) is an advanced set of helpful learning tools built into the instrument, letting you teach yourself how to play and perform regardless of your ability. Choose from nine step-by-step lessons for left, right, or both hands. Y.E.S. helps you master a song with ease.
Get off to a flying start—choose a song and the Music Database automatically selects the best accompaniment and voices for you to start playing immediately.
