Yamaha PSR-E473 Digital Keyboard
AN EVOLUTION IN SOUND AND PERFORMANCE
The touch-sensitive keyboard and powerful sound engine of the PSR-E473 bring together superb sound and a great feel in an all-new portable instrument.
And with a 76-key touch-sensitive keyboard and functionality that builds on and evolves the legacy of the renowned PSR series of portable keyboards, the PSR-EW425 offers you power and performance that will let you take your music further.
SOUND LIKE A PRO!
The PSR-E473 and PSR-EW425 deliver pro-quality sound inspired by high-end models. They’re loaded with augmented effects and a wide range of styles – from the latest hits to genres from around the world.
Both models expand on previous generations with an increased internal storage capacity that allows Yamaha to provide even higher-resolution instrument Voices. Enjoy 820 realistic, expressive instrument sounds from here and around the world with pro- level sound quality. The PSR-E473 and PSR-EW425 are equipped with Super Articulation Lite, a function that realistically simulates the distinct ways each instrument is played – for example, the scratch sound of a distorted electric guitar or the harmonics of a nylon-string guitar.
Choose from 290 automatic accompaniment styles including rock, dance, and jazz as well a wide range of musical genres from around the world. Experience the thrill of playing in your very own band as the Styles respond to your left hand with just the right rhythms, bass, and chords.
Both PSR-E473 and PSR-EW425 are the only models in the PSR-E series to feature two channels for insertion effects. Equipped with the latest LSI tone generator, these instruments deliver high-quality effects previously available only with high-end models.
Save your favourite Voice and control panel settings so that you can call them up in an instant with the touch of a button, even while playing. No need to search for Voices, Styles and settings!
Yamaha revamped the control panel and LCD, phased out the numeric keypad, added Direct Category Access buttons.
The optimized control panel makes it quick and easy to access Voices, Styles and functions so that you can focus your time on being creative. With dedicated buttons, Quick Sampling, and innovative Motion Effect functionality, you can intuitively express the sounds you‘re hearing in your head.
LIVE CONTROL KNOBS
The two Live Control Knobs make it easy to manipulate and interact with the sound you produce as you play. The ability to set the filter cut-off frequency to change the brightness of the sound and control effects in real-time helps bring your performances to life.
GROOVE CREATOR & QUICK SAMPLING
With Groove Creator, buttons and knobs are all you need to create contemporary electronic music and sound like a pro.
Capture sound from outside of your instrument using the AUX input, microphone input or even by importing files from a USB storage device, and then play those sounds directly from your keyboard. The possibilities are endless!
The Motion Effect function lets you instantly add effects while you play that can, morph the sound with a filter, create pitch risers, add tape stop effects & slices, or other new dynamic sound effects. All by simply holding down the button!
DIRECT CATEGORY ACCESS
Yamaha added Direct Category Access buttons to the user interface. Push the buttons for instantaneous access to the Voices and Styles you need for the musical genre of your choice.
CONNECT AND SHARE
A variety of connectivity options provide all the support you need for practising, playing, and performing. Plug in a microphone to try your hand at singing while playing, use the Rec‘n‘Share and MusicSoft Manager app to share your music with the world, and hook into PA systems to perform on stage.
