The Yamaha PSR-E373 is a portable keyboard with 61 touch-sensitive keys, 622 sounds, 205 accompaniment styles, and 153 preset songs. The keyboard uses AWM sampling technonlgy to provide a wealth of inspiring, realistic sounds including a host of Super Articulation Lite voices that use the ART button on the panel to control the nuances of non-keyboard sounds.
The Keys to Success learning techniques provide deep resources for practice and education, and with an optional cable, the musical experience can be broadened by connecting to an iPhone, iPad, or iPod. Additionally, the music score for all 205 songs is available for download, which provides tips for the onboard lessons with images, a glossary, and more.
Smart Chord technology is now onboard, allowing players to achieve complex chord voicings with only a few fingers. You can also use the melody-suppressor function to help you play along to your favorite songs. Simply connect any device with a line output to the auxiliary input, including a mobile device, computer, mixer, or even another keyboard. The auxiliary input can also be used to just listen to playback from the audio device. An arpeggiator further expands the keyboard’s versatility.
Built-in amplifiers and speakers allow you to perform without additional gear, while the headphone output provides for private practice or playing. Basic effects including reverb, delay, and chorus enhance the sounds of the instrument, and a dedicated piano button and a damper pedal input (pedal available separately) deliver an authentic piano sound. A duo mode can be engaged to split the keyboard in half, so there are effectively two Middle C notes, a smart and practical way for one person to teach another how to play.
- Play the keys heavily and you’ll get louder tones, or play softly to achieve quieter sounds. The touch-sensitive keyboard will accurately reflect every nuance of your playing, making your performances musically expressive.
Diverse, Quality Sounds to Inspire
- A diverse array of 622 quality voices (241 Panel Voices + 22 Drum/SFX Kits + 20 Arpeggio + 339 XGlite Voices) allow you to enjoy playing any music genre.
- 11 Super Articulation Lite sounds are onboard. These non-keyboard sounds let you use the ART button to control nuances like breath sounds on wind instruments or the body slap on an acoustic guitar.
Real-Time Backing Tracks
- 205 auto accompaniment styles provide real-time band backing tracks based on the chords you play.
- Smart Chord technology allows players of all levels to achieve complex chord harmony using only a few fingers, driving the Style engine to produce incredible-sounding ensemble accompaniments.
