Description

The Yamaha PSR-E353 has easy-to-use onboard lesson functions for beginners and a touch-responsive keyboard that will satisfy experienced musicians.

A comprehensive library of 573 high quality voices
The PSR-E353 comes with a diverse array of 573 different voices including pianos, strings, guitars and synths. The grand piano voices utilise stereo-sampled sounds with a superb feeling of presence. Players can enjoy reverb effects for the feeling of performing in a concert hall, and choruses that add extra breadth and resonance to the sound. In addition to a library of 573 instrument voices and 158 backing styles from around the world, you can also connect an audio player to jam along with your favorite songs.

Touch-sensitive keyboard for piano-like control of of volume and dynamics
Play the keys firmly to increase the volume of the sound or softly to decrease it; the PSR-E353 will faithfully reflect every nuance of your playing.

Nine-step lesson function (Yamaha Education Suite) helps beginners learn to play
The lesson function offers a total of nine stages - three for the left hand, three for the right hand, and three for both hands, helping new players to practise the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to develop your skills and a "waiting" function that adjusts the tempo to suit the person playing, pausing the backing track until the correct note is played.

Connect your music player, reduce the lead volume with Melody Suppressor and jam along with the music
Connect an audio player to the PSR-E353 to enjoy your music through the instrument speakers and to play along. The "Melody Suppressor" function lowers the volume of the melody, allowing you to play the lead line of your favourite tracks. *The volume of the melody line may not lower for some songs.

Connect to your iPad/iPhone and expand your keyboard with software and apps
By connecting your iPad/iPhone/iPod touch to the instrument with an optional cable, it's easy to make practicing and performing music an even more enjoyable experience. There are several exciting Yamaha applications available for download from the App Store including: *My Music Recorder -- An application for recording video and audio of music performances on your iPhone/iPod touch. Audio and video data recorded can be e-mailed or uploaded to YouTube. *Sound Controller -- Use the wheel or XY controller of this application to control effects such as pitch bending and reverb from your iPhone/iPod touch.

158 auto accompaniment Styles provide real-time controllable backing tracks
From pop and rock to dance and more, the PSR-E353 offers Styles (auto accompaniment backing tracks) in a huge range of genres. The built-in Music Database with 100 different settings make it easy to access voices and backings matching the musical style you want, allowing you to play many different types of music quickly and easily.

      This versatile portable keyboard features some excellent Yamaha grand piano samples as well as a host of organ, string and guitar sounds. The built in speakers have a nice warm sound. The built in headphone jack makes it a great choice for late night silent rehearsal. This is a hands on review by Jim at Sam ash Columbus

        Comments about Yamaha Psr-E353 Portable Keyboard:

        The PSR-E353 is a fantastic portable keyboard - probably the best value for money in the 61-key category. A large sound library, automatic accompaniment, touch-sensitive keys, and good quality speakers combine to make this a great choice for children or beginners. It also works as a USB-MIDI controller, so music producers looking for a compositional tool will not be disappointed.

            Comments about Yamaha Psr-E353 Portable Keyboard:

            I liked the onboard instruction as well as the multitude of sounds available. Its got a great sound and although its not a weighted key system I really liked the response from the keys, the harder I pressed the bigger my sound!

              Comments about Yamaha Psr-E353 Portable Keyboard:

              One of my favorite features of this keyboard is the big button that says "Grand Piano" You can get lost running through all the patches and sounds in this baby but whenever you want to run back to the basics you can just press this button and there it is. The quick "Dual patch" option is great as well for when I want to hear piano and strings. This keyboard also has velocity sensitive keys which is great for teaching how hard to hit the keys. The best part is the screen. It shows you what note you are pressing and where it is on the bass and treble clefs. Excellent teaching keyboard. This is a hands on review from Keith @ Sam Ash Dallas
