The PSR-E313 is the most affordable Yamaha portable keyboard with touch-sensitivity that responds more like a piano. It has 480 instrument voices including Yamaha's Portable Grand voice, regarded as one of the best acoustic grand piano voices available in a portable keyboard. The interactive Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) with innovative Listen & Learn capability helps you learn to play. The LCD display makes it easy to select voices and styles, and displays the music as well as which notes to play on the keyboard. The chord dictionary and built-in metronome will also help you as you learn chords and rhythm, and the headphone jack makes it easy to practice silently.
The Yamaha PSR-E313 has an easy to use 2-track recorder that lets you record up to 10,000 notes per song with a 5-song capacity. You get 102 songs and 100 music styles to play along with as well as the Sound Effect Kit with cool sounds and grooves for inspiration and fun. In addition, the PSR-E313 is XGlite compatible and features Flash ROM; perfect for transferring MIDI content from the Internet.
The Music Database feature provides automatic keyboard setups by song title, including Splits (different voice on L&R) and Layers (2 voices i.e. Piano/Strings). You also get 12 drum kits plus a sound effect kit and DSP effects include nine reverb and four chorus. Plus, it will all sound great through the true stereo speaker system with bass ports for full sound. It also has 32-note polyphony, sustain input, and two 12cm speakers with 5W power. The E213 can be powered by the optional Yamaha PA-130 AC adapter power supply or six AA batteries (not included).

My business that I am in sometimes puts me on the road for months at a time. I have a Yamaha Clavinova at home along with other electronic gear. I love to play for fun now and this keyboard gives me a chance to take this on the road with me and not the worry of having a very expensive piece of equipment in a hotel room. This however does not take away from the quality of this instrument. It is enjoyable and functional. The only thing it lacks is the action feel of a regualar piano like my Clavinova has, but at this price this instrument is great. I could see it being used by beginners as well as seasoned players for it's portability and also it's features that you find in much more expensive keyboards. So, sit back explore and release the creative juices that my be hidden in your mind.
It has so many features, that I don't know what to do with them. I especially like the touch sensitivity because it lets you do crescendos, etc. with it. I don't know why people are complaining about the loudness, because its loud enough for me. The chord dictionary comes in handy also, I just wish it had the scales too.
I purchased this keyboard as it is a Yamaha and most bands have one. Not exactly like this one, but the cost on this is incredible. Has a variety of effects and many other awesome sounds etc.....Still learning all that it has to offer. Grandkids love to play on it and I am learning quickly and love the sounds. Great keyboard for anyone wanting to learn or to add to your garage band. Love it! Don't pass this one up.
this keyboard is great. their are many different kits to play and give you a huge variety of notes, it was worth all the money in more. Although it doesn't come with an A/C Adapter. But it was a great buy its touch sensitive and the LCD Screen is very clear. Making it fun and easy to play and learn, along with recording ur own song.
I love my new Yamaha keyboard. I bought it to learn to play the piano. It's a great value. Has lots and lots of features. I read reviews on Casio's and Yamaha's and I know that lots of musicians use Yamaha's so I figured they have to make a good product or professional musicians would not be using them. That was the selling point for me, as well as the price and the quality of the instrument. I almost bought a smaller keyboard with less features, and I'm so glad I didn't. Would highly recommend this product.
I've had this keyboard for several years and I've worn it out! It's a really great keyboard for the price, and a great way to "get your foot in the door" where accompaniment is concerned. I play music in my community and really have enjoyed taking this very portable keyboard with me to Nursing Homes, to perform for local residents. It sounds great with a mixer/amp and is so easy to use. My only complaint would be that it's a little confusing trying to record an arrangement with only 2 tracks. If you mess up, you have to start all over. You are also not able to begin your recording with only drums because as soon as you touch a key, the accompaniment begins. There's no room for a "home-made" intro. Other than that, it's a really good little keyboard. Great for starters. Also really fun sound effects. It's been a blast to use. If you play "solo" and want your own accompaniment that's easy to use, this is for you!
I made an extensive research on similar keyboards and I found Yamaha was the best sound quality. My aim was to find a practice equipment beside the piano which can sound similar to a piano. The Grand Piano sound of Yamaha is just perfect for that. My final decision was made because of 1 single feature, that is touch sensitivity. Just try one without that feature and you will realize how important it is for your musical emotional expression. I would advise any beginners to consider spending this smaller amount and get a great value for it.
I have only owned it for ten days, and it is a great keyboard for the money. I have never played before, and I am working my way through the Alfred's Adult All-in-One Course. The touch response is great, since it allows you to do dynamics and it will also allow you to eventually be able to play on a piano. The one disadvantage that I have found is that it is not very loud: only 5W of power. Remember to get the survival kit (has the power supply, foot pedal and headphones). I also got a stand and gig bag.
