I bought the Yamaha psr e433 primarily to use as a vst plug in controller for my daw. I could have just purchased a midi controller but decided this piece of kit would fit my needs just the same, plus give me the benefit of using it as a standalone unit with its built in speakers and multitude of on board sounds and loops. It has actually helped me write a few songs too. Great price point, high quality considering the price..
