The PSRE323 is the first digital keyboard in the Yamaha line-up with a touch sensitive keyboard, and features a backlit LCD screen and an easy-to-use 2-track recorder. Packed with 482 voices, the Music Database feature includes 102 preset songs, each with its own specially-selected Style and Voice settings. In addition to XGlite and reverb, the model offers exceptional sound.
With Yamaha's Touch Response, the PSRE323 keyboard responds like an acoustic piano. If you're buying a keyboard having piano in mind, you'll want Yamaha's Touch Response feature. On an acoustic piano, striking a key harder will produce a louder sound, striking it softer will produce a softer sound.
One press of the Portable Grand button resets the entire keyboard to a stereo-sampled piano, perfect for when it's time to practice. Yamaha is known around the world for the quality of their acoustic pianos and this attention to detail is evident as you enjoy the warmth and clarity of this Portable Grand piano.
The PSRE323 has a large selection of professional sounding voices called XGlite. Only Yamaha's best keyboards have the capacity to support and reproduce Yamaha's XGlite voices. The result is amazing sound quality and almost 500 voices for you to choose from, offering even greater compatibility with both 3rd party and Yamaha XG software.
The PSRE323 comes with 102 built-in songs and an interactive lesson system, divided into left and right hand parts, for learning them. In addition, you have the ability to connect to a computer, download more songs from the Internet into the internal Flash ROM, and use all of the Yamaha Education Suite features to help you learn to play them. Yamaha makes it easy to get connected with the PC button. Now, instead of wading through function menus and fighting through a maze of selections, one button is your expressway to music on the web and your computer.
You can connect to the MIDI port on the back with an optional USB-MIDI and once connected, you can play your songs into the computer, edit them if necessary, and e-mail them to your friends and family. And with General MIDI (GM) and XGlite compatibility, song data always plays back with the correct sounds.
Dual mode allows you to combine two voices across the keyboard at the same time, for example piano and strings. Split Mode allows you to select a different voice for each hand, for example piano for your right and bass for your left. With the 482 voices found in the PSRE323, the combinations are limited only by your imagination.
The PSRE323 features MIDI In/Out, Sustain Pedal jack and a Headphone jack for private practice.
The PSRE323 Package (YAM PSRE323 PAK) includes the Yamaha SKB2 Survival Kit
, which includes a 3 year extended warranty, Watch & Learn DVD, grand piano key cover, stereo headphones, Yamaha Survival Kit DVD-ROM, and more.
