About the Yamaha PSR-EW300
Improve your keyboard and musical skills
Improve your keyboard and musical skills
At some point, any player will need help, but what if you want to work at a time when no teacher is available? Yamaha created the PSR-EW300 to give you a wide range of educational features to improve your keyboard and musical skills. This sophisticated portable keyboard also offers a broad variety of sounds, programmed harmonization and accompaniment, and onboard digital effects that give you a full palette of musical options. And with the included Survival Kit, you'll get a foot pedal, stereo headphones,and a two year extended warranty.
Keys to the music
The PSR-EW300's keyboard features 76 full-sized, touch-sensitive keys that give you a broader range and more expressive dynamics. The user interface includes an easy-to-read backlit LCD display. Dual Voice allows you to trigger two sounds with the same key, and Split Voice maps two different voices onto different areas of the keyboard so you can accompany a treble line with a bass line. A dedicated Piano button on the control panel lets you instantly switch to the Grand Piano setting. Sustain can be controlled with the foot pedal included with the Survival Kit.
Sounds, styles, and effects
The 574 sampled sounds give the PSR-EW300 its voice, with a full range of instruments including keyboards, strings, wind instruments, percussion, synthesizers, and sound effects. Triggering drums and sound effects is made simple with 16 kit settings. Onboard digital sound processing includes twelve different reverbs, five chorus settings including two flangers, and six types of equalization, while 26 harmonizer presets allow you to play multiple parts with a single key.
165 automated Accompaniment Styles give you multi-instrument tracks to play along, with intelligent Intro, Fill, and Ending options for a more realistic experience. A library of over 100 pre-programmed songs gives you hours of options for practice or a rainy day.
You'll also get a powerful array of Yamaha Educational Suite options to take your knowledge to the next level. The expanded Song Lesson feature lets you choose a track from the song library as the basis for a series of lessons using Yamaha's series of free downloadable scores. The software gives you immediate lesson grades so you can monitor your progress. You'll match a particular phrase with Phrase Repeat, work on elementary music and keyboarding skills using the Listening, Timing, and Waiting section, and improve the dynamics of your playing with Touch Tutor.
The 12 Chord Study lessons illustrate chord structure throughout the frequency range, and 12 programmed chord progressions let you play along with familiar structures. The system also includes a Chord Dictionary where you can call up the structure of a chord which displays on the LED display in musical notation and on a keyboard display that shows you which keys to play. Duo Mode lets a teacher and student practice a part together by splitting the keyboard into two identical ranges.
The PSR-EW300 operates on six AA batteries or the included AC adapter. Two 4-3/4" speakers let you hear yourself in stereo, and the 1/4" stereo output jack connects to the included headphones or to your amplification system. With its 1/8" stereo input jack, you can connect the PSR-E300 to your portable devices and play along with your favorite music, while the selectable Melody Suppressor makes room for you to take the lead. A USB to Host jack connects the keyboard to your computer and allows you to record your playing without a separate interface.
Whether you want to learn or just want to jam, Yamaha's here to help. The PSR-EW300's plethora of sounds and features and host of educational resources let you take your playing to the next level.
