Yamaha PSR-E423 61-Key Portable Keyboard

The Yamaha PSR-E423 offers several innovative features. The basic features for learning to play -- like the Yamaha Portable Grand and Yamaha Education Suite -- and features for when it's time to perform, like synthesizer Control Knobs for real-time control of filter, effects, sound envelope and Style tempo. The Arpeggiator provides an expanded 150 different patterns and 40 arpeggio Voices. These easy-to-use professional features, along with its new black body, set this keyboard apart from others in its class.

Control Knobs, Arpeggiator and Pitch Bend

Most of the features of the Yamaha PSR-E423 have been enhanced over its predecessor. Two control knobs provide real-time control for filtering the main melody tone, and changing the tempo of the arpeggio just like an analog synthesizer. The Pitch Bend wheel brings Voices like the Sax and Trumpet to life.

Improved Arpeggio Function

Use the Yamaha PSR-E423 to tap into instant inspiration with the Arpeggio function, which has been improved for smoother playability. New hold mode and allocated key-range will free your hands for playing with both hands. It provides an expanded 150 patterns that automatically generate even more useful phrases that change depending on the notes and chords you play.

Auto-Backing Mode

Arabic, Indian and Chinese content has been added to Styles, Rhythm and Voices. With our high-quality Styles and Voices, you'll sound like you have a professional backing band behind you.

New Dynamic Voices

Dynamic Voices usually found on high-end workstations are now on the new Yamaha PSR-E423. There are two different waveforms that change depending on how hard you play the keyboard, this allows more expression on Voices such as overdriven or nylon guitar. High quality Voices, from acoustic instruments to electric sounds, have been expanded to 700 varieties. All of these high-quality Voices sound even better through the bass-enhanced 2-way speakers.

Extended Flash Memory, USB

4 times more flash memory has been added to the PSR-E423 so you can play along with your favorites transferred from a PC.

Optional Survival Kit Contents:
- Yamaha Power Adapter (PA130)
- Foot switch
- Stereo dynamic headphones
- 2 year extended warranty

"Great value, amazingly feature-rich - ideal first keyboard for 'synth' enthusiasts!"
Sound: It's got a lot of voices but truth is most of them are actually combo sounds that could've been obtained via Dual/Split functions. The main tones are okay-ish; the piano/organ tones are nowehere as good as in the NP-30 or PSR-550 (XGLite is not even close to XG). Touch response is decent, though keys are not graded. However, they are much better than other keyboards in this range, and while this is something that you shouldn't be taking to a studio - it was never meant to be one. Feature: The PSR-423 is overloaded with features for a keyboard of its price, and most of them are pretty decent too! The 'realtime effect knobs' can be used very effectively to create nice textures (rather than just 'toy around'); the arpeggiator is surprisingly good; some of the 'styles' are cheesy but tonewise is ok. It allows multi-track recording too. A fantastic platform to start off for synth-oriented beginners. Ease of Use: Very simple and intuitive interface, with a concise, to-the-point manual. The 'learning features' (erstwhile Y.E.S. - Yamaha Educational Suite) and some new techniques added to that might take a few moments to get used to, but I haven't met too many people who use it that much anyways. Quality: Fairly sturdily bulit; good quality speakers (with nice bass response); the keys 'feel' nice and non-toyish; dialler, pitch-bend knob & knobs are responsive and give a nice analog feel. Just that I have a thing against rubber buttons on instruments - but it might be a personal prejudice. The stand that comes free is a bit sad. Value: At this price, it packs unbelievable value. Best possible starting platform for someone who looks to get into music production/ synthesizers. Piano students should rather go for a NP-30/P-85. Manufacturer Support: They forgot to send me the screws for the stand. On contacting, local support said have to wait till next stock arrives. Apart from this minor glitch (which, nonetheless, left a bad impression), haven't contacted them so far. Heard from peers that it is more or less ok. The Wow Factor: Looks slimmer, sexier and as 'professional' as any contemporary high-end synth than the other toys in the PSR E series. Is very portable too. Overall: Great value. Ideal first keyboard, especially for those who are not looking forward to play only piano for the rest of their lives. Lots of features, decent voices (best in this price range) - amazing how they packed so many things into it at such a price!

"Excellent Product"
Overall: I purchase this keyboard as a learning instrument, but it is more than a starter tool. It produces some of the greatest sounds, and not to mention the price was reasonable. There are so many different features available to bring rhythm to any room. Thanks
