As a new release in the field of PSR-A musical keyboards, Yamaha presents the PSR-A5000 61 Key keyboard, which aims to inspire with new features and musical genres.
From North Africa to Iran is the itinerary for the new PSR-A5000 Yamaha piano keyboard. Yamaha has given the PSR-A5000 new sounds from oriental instruments, such as B. Qud, Qanoon, Nay, and others, which are ten times larger and more elaborate than in the previous models. A total of 1,161 keyboard instruments sounds, including 299 oriental voices, 44 oriental drum sets, and 20 Revo!
SFX kits want to provide the necessary ambiance in terms of sound. Advanced drum kit functions offer a selection of 128 rhythm instruments in just a single set. There are also 454 accompanying styles included260 oriental rhythms such as Khalleji, Shami, Masri, Maghrebi, Persian and Turkish.
A new crossfade portamento, which has velocity and time-related parameters, should enable the player to adjust the speed and velocity of successive notes, which should result in a smoother and more expressive transition between individual notes. Also, the PSR-A5000 offers an enlarged expansion memory of approx. 1 GB, which enables the player to create and save musical content in high quality.
In the area of the accompaniment section, a Style Section Reset function now resets the rhythm to the beginning of the bar at the push of a button. The Style Section Time Signature function allows different time signatures to be combined within a style and the length of the patterns to be set up to 128 bars. With the help of audio phrasing software, you can create your own audio styles and play them back in a loop, which can be supplemented with Yamaha MIDI parts using onboard resources.
The PSR-A5000 is operated via a 7-inch color display with a touch function, which is supplemented by a newly designed user interface. This offers, among other things. the important scale tune function. The 61 key keyboard has also been redesigned and the FSB version offers higher pressure resistance and a larger key travel. An integrated chord looper reproduces recorded chord progressions as a loop, thus allowing improvisations of the left hand and further freedom in performance.
