The PSR-E453 is an all-around keyboard that is ideal as a starter instrument but also a robust alternative for experienced players who seek advanced features for their live performance and/or for their composing. Its powerful sound system boasts two 6W amplifiers and its wide range of features, controls, and connectivity make the PSR-E453 a long-lasting musical companion as you grow and hone your skills.
758 High-Quality Voices with 48-Note Polyphony
The PSR-E453 includes 758 high quality voices, ranging from acoustic to electric instruments, featuring 8 Sweet! voices and 3 Cool! voices which use Yamaha's advanced sampling technologies to capture the realism and specific characteristics of each sound. 48-note polyphony allows for the performance of complex passages without dropped notes.
Assignable Real-Time Control Knobs, DSP Effects, and Pitch Bend
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.
Connectivity with Audio and MIDI Capabilities
The PSR-E453 features audio transfer through the USB TO HOST terminal*. 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**. *For iOS device connection, refer to the "iPhone / iPad Connection Manual" **Depending on the song, the volume of the melody part may not be affected.
Create Your Own Grooves
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.
