Sharing the same roots as the excellent S-Series the Yamaha PSR-A3000 Arranger Keyboard has a lot of power to offer. With an easy-to-use interface and added functions and voices, this workstation will please artists of many genres.
Straight from the box the keyboard offers over 1000 voices and hundreds of styles including Arabic, Maghreb, Khaligi, Iranian, Turkish and Greek styles, with more planned for the future and the ability to be expanded. The Yamaha PSRA3000 also supports any tuning, to further bolster the realism of the performance parameters available. A joystick further expands the possibilities with dynamic control over pitch and modulation; making rapid trills, dynamic pitch bends, and subtle modulation easy.
Expandable Voices & Styles
Although already packed with sounds and styles the Yamaha PSR A3000 lets you take things further. The Yamaha website is regularly updated with Voice & Style Expansion content packs to expand the Voices and Styles of the Yamaha PSR-A3000.
Buy the pack you’re after, download it to a USB memory storage device and hook it up to your Yamaha PSR-A3000 and a new set of regional, ethnic and traditional sounds, rhythm and backing are yours to play with.
Making music with the Yamaha PSR-A3000 Arranger is seamless. With such a wide selection of available sounds and a built-in sequencer, you can prepare all your music on the keyboard and save them conveniently to a USB stick as an audio file to take to your computer.
The Yamaha PSR-A3000 Arranger Workstation allows for endless scale types. Although initially outfitted with six of the most popular scales, you can expand this set further with the Oriental Scales feature, which lets you alter the pitch of single notes, to create any scale you want.
Using the internal memory of the Yamaha PSR-A3000 in conjunction with an external USB memory device you can save your custom scales and access them straight away with the Scale Memory buttons. You can even change up scales when playing and quickly revert them with the Scale Setting Reset function.
Of course, the Yamaha PSR-A3000 is still a keyboard, so quality sound production is of the utmost importance. The PSR-A3000 boasts an improved Master EQ and sound generation; with a powerful low range and fantastic mids and highs to ensure exacting reproductions of all the instruments the workstation has to offer. Upgraded speakers ensure tone is excellent and sound is distortion-free.
Blurring the lines between reproduction and the sound of the original instrument, the Yamaha PSR-A3000 Keyboard utilises Yamaha’s MegaVoice Technology. Going beyond basic samples this feature replicates the performance techniques associated with the instrument you have chosen. For example, choosing a guitar instrument will give you open and mute strings sounds, dead notes, hammering effects, slide effects and harmonics, along with a range of strum and body noises; all contributing to the realism of the sound produced.
