NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Yamaha unveils the PSR-E433, a powerful new keyboard with all the tools needed to create compelling, professional-sounding music. With the PSR-E433, it's easier than ever to learn how to play and share music with friends. Introduced at Summer NAMM 2012, this compact, portable keyboard is geared towards families looking for a versatile first keyboard.
"The PSR-E433 is one cool multi-tasker," said Mark Anderson, Director of Marketing for Yamaha's Keyboard Division. "It offers intriguing synthesizer features like an arpeggiator, complemented by all of the necessary components for learning to play piano, including the Yamaha Education Suite, Portable Grand button and a built-in recording function."
A fun, multipurpose keyboard, the PSR-E433 makes learning and experimenting fun. Experience DJ-style music-making with the PSR-E433's new DJ Pattern mode. In DJ Pattern mode, players can Mute tracks, change sections and transpose in real time. Assignable Live Control Knobs put users in the driver's seat, empowering them to sculpt their sounds on the fly by adding effects, changing filter settings or modifying the stereo image from pinpoint thin to wider than the speakers via the Ultra-Wide Stereo effect.
Players can also take 731 detailed instrument sounds – like Yamaha's special Sweet! and Cool! Voices – for a spin. USB connectivity lets users save and load settings directly to and from a USB flash drive and connect directly to your computer or iPad (Camera Connection Kit is required.) "The PSR-E433 offers a great combination of traditional and modern features," said Yamaha Portable Keyboard Product Manager Nate Tschetter. "Multiple lesson modes and Yamaha's excellent one-touch Portable Grand button are great features for learning how to play, while the new DJ Pattern mode and assignable control knobs provide modern, music-making features for electronic music enthusiasts on the go."
Carrying an MSRP of $429, the PSR-E433 is slated to ship in July 2012.
