"Good customer service in the U.S. is almost non-existent these days, but your customer service is excellent and exceeded my expectations. Shipping was speedy too." - Ellen, NJ
"I want to thank you and Kraft for a great job. The delivery was on time and the man was helpful and pleasant. I have always been overly cautious of ordering things online that are so expensive, but you and your company has proven that this can be done! My granddaughter loves her new piano and I loved your service and product, too!" - Sissy, MA
The PSR-E453 is an all-round keyboard which is ideal as a starter instrument but also a robust alternative for experienced players who seek advanced features for their live performance and/or for their composing.
The higher the polyphony the more notes, effects, and controls can function simultaneously. With 48-note polyphony players will benefit from fewer dropped notes and more expressive control than they would with a lower note count.
XG Lite compatibility
With a larger and higher-quality selection of instrument Voices than the General MIDI (GM) standard Voice library, the XG Lite library makes XG MIDI songs sound just that much better. Yamaha instruments with XG Lite compatibility benefit from this extensive library and a large collection of XG songs (available at www.yamahamusicsoft.com) making MIDI song playback a treat to the ears.
USB to HOST (MIDI & Audio)
The PSR-E453 features audio transfer through the USB to Host port. You can digitally record your performance to your computer or iOS device. Connecting to your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, adds a new dimension of MIDI control with apps. What makes it so great is that now you can achieve both MIDI and audio transfer functionality with the simplicity of just one cable connection.
USB TO DEVICE
By connecting an optional USB flash drive, you're able to save and transfer performances you've captured on the internal song recorder. This gives you virtually unlimited storage potential for your masterpieces!
Assignable Live Control Knobs
Two Assignable Live Control Knobs are designed for real-time manipulation of various effects. Assign one to cutoff frequency and the other to resonance for classic filter effects, or assign them to specific effects designed to work with Styles and DJ Patterns. This professional feature gives the player analog synth-type control and provides a great selection of tools for shaping sounds and performances.
Style Expansion Memory
Modern technology devices come with a common set of features and functionality, but allow users to customize their experience in various ways. Style Expansion Memory allows users to choose from a variety of expansion Styles and save them into the instrument's on-board memory for quick and easy recall. You can even change your mind down the road and switch the Style content as your tastes or needs evolve.
Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S)
Yamaha Education Suite teaches you to play by breaking songs down into individual components, like pitch and rhythm, and reconstructing them once mastered. You can practice one hand of a song alone while the instrument plays along with the other. WAITING mode pauses the accompaniment until you play the notes indicated on the display. YOUR TEMPO mode monitors playing and adjusts the tempo according to your accuracy. MINUS ONE mode lets you play the piano part start-to-finish, and gives you a grade at the end.
1/8" AUX input
Use the speakers of your instrument to listen to the audio playback of your portable music player, iOS device, mixer, or computer via the 1/8" AUX input. Simply connect the output of your device to the AUX line input and turn up the volume. You can use this feature to listen to your favorite tracks, or play along with them since your instrument will still function normally at the same time!
DJ Pattern Mode
The PATTERN function puts a wealth of powerful loops and beats at your fingertips to instantly create dynamically varied music on the fly, like a DJ, tweaking the Live Control Knobs for even more sound variation.
