Buying a First Keyboard
Yamaha PSR-E413 61-Key Portable Keyboard
The Yamaha PSRE413 offers the newest options and several innovative features for keyboard players from beginner to professional. The Yamaha Education Suite and features like realtime control over effects, filters, tempo, and 100 arpeggiator/groove patterns make things easy when it's time to play. The Yamaha Portable Grand voice and over 500 other voices plus onboard speaker system ensure things sound good too. You also have a 300-title music database, 6-track sequencer, and USB port for computer connectivity.
The PSR-E413 offers Sound Control Knobs and 5 types of master EQ that you can tweak to tailor sounds and effects. The Arpeggiator delivers 100 different patterns and beats.
The PSR-E413 also includes USB connectivity, allowing for the transfer of songs and styles between the keyboard and your computer. This can be used for educational purposes or for musicians to play along with pieces that are downloaded into the Yamaha PSRE413. For aspiring music artists, recording original pieces is quick and simple with the 6-track/5-song capacity onboard sequencer.
And, with Yamaha's Performance Assistant technology, anyone can play a songeven novices. When the keys are struck in time with the music, the notes are corrected to match chords of the song being played. No matter what keys are hit, the Yamaha PSRE413 keyboard plays the correct notes.
The E413 can be powered by the optional Yamaha PA-130 AC adapter power supply or 6 AA batteries (not included).
