available: the 61-key TRITON Le 61
and the 76-key TRITON Le 76 both
featuring synth action keyboards; and the 88-key
TRITON Le 88 which employs a piano weighted,
graded hammer action. Featuring Korg's HI (Hyper
Integrated) synthesis technology, TRITON Le provides
62-voice polyphony. The 61-key and 76-key TRITON
Le models offer a robust 32MB of PCM ROM that
provide numerous classic TRITON Programs and Combinations, along with a host of cutting-edge sounds geared toward
electronic music. The TRITON Le 88 adds an additional 16MB piano-based ROM samples. The user-installable EXB-SMPL
Sampling option adds two mic/line audio inputs, SCSI, and supports 16-bit 48kHz linear mono/stereo sampling along with the
sophisticated sample waveform editing functions you’d expect to find in a dedicated sampler.

512 Programs (448 factory and 64 user)
and 24 drum kits are available in internal
memory. 128 programs and 9 drum kits
are also included for GM compatibility.
Programs and drum kits are derived from
32 MegaBytes of internal PCM ROM using
Korg’s HI (Hyper Integrated) synthesis system and high-quality 48 kHz sampling.
These samples are divided among 425 multisamples and 413 drum samples and cover
a broad range of instruments from piano,
guitar, brass, strings and tuned percussion
to cutting modern synth sounds. The
Triton Le 88 uses 48 Mbyte of PCM ROM
and 429 multisounds.
There are also 384 Combis available each
comprised of up to eight Programs that
can be layered, velocity layered and split.

mode and 32 note polyphony in double
oscillator mode.
There are a total of four independent studio quality effects processors available,
based on 89 effects types, including one
stereo insert effect, two master effects and a
master 3-band EQ.
Effects types include: filter and dynamics
effects, such as EQ and compressor; Pitch
and phase modulation effects, such as chorus, phaser, rotary speaker and pitch
shifter; early reflection, delay effects and
reverbs; as well as a number of mono and
mono-chain effects in which two mono
effects are connected in series.
Each effect is fully editable and many of
the effect’s parameters can be controlled in
The BPM/MIDI SYNC function allows you
to synchronize the modulation/delay time
of effects to the internal or external tempo.
You can specify each delay time as a note
value, easily setting up rhythms that will
follow any changes that occur in the tempo

Music Workstation with Variable Performance Modeling
The KARMA is a totally unique Music Workstation that combines the sounds, effects and sequencing
capabilities of Korg's award-winning TRITON with a powerful realtime performance modeling
technology called KARMA. The result is a workstation that provides an unprecedented
amount of user-interaction that will allow you to reach, what was once considered,
unobtainable expressive control of your musical ideas. KARMA stands for
Kay Algorithmic Realtime Music Architecture and is the invention of
musician/programmer Stephen Kay, who has worked closely with Korg
for the past seven years to integrate and further enhance KARMA’s
functionality. Based on the notes and chords that are played,
KARMA will automatically generate and manipulate phrases
and patterns that are impossible to produce with conventional
arpeggiators or static pattern playback functions. KARMA can
produce anything from unhuman electronic rhythms and melodic textures to
acoustic emulations of harp glissandos and finger-picking and provides control over
almost 400 musical elements that allow you to interact with the phrases intuitively,
and to change them in ways that can range from subtle to extreme.
KARMA Function (Variable
Performance Modeler)
Karma (Kay Algorithmic Realtime Music
Architecture) is a patented algorithmic
MIDI data generating technology that
takes input notes, chords and controller
movements to generate complex and
sophisticated musical phrases and effects.
Phrases and patterns are produced by a GE
(Generated Effect). Each GE consist of
nearly 400 parameters, such as note data,
rhythm development, chord structure and
velocity. Of these, 16 parameters are available for realtime control.
There are over 1000 types of phrase or pattern available covering a wide range of
instruments, playing styles and musical
genres: Create swirling cascades of complex
interweaving notes, tricked-out techno
arpeggios, dense rhythmic and melodic
textures, natural sounding glissandos for
acoustic instrument programs, guitar
strumming and finger-picking simulations,
to name a few. And because phrases and
patterns can evolve in response to realtime
controller movements, your performance
will never sound “canned” or static.

Analog Modeling Synthesizers
The MS2000 44-note velocity keyboard and the MS2000R 4U
rack-mount are analog modeling synthesizers that use the
latest DSP technology to recreate the coveted analog sounds
and hands-on functionality of Korg’s classic MS20 analog
synth, VC-10 vocoder and SQ10 analog sequencer. All major
sound creation parameters are available on the front panel,
with 35 dedicated knobs providing the ability to create and
manipulate sounds in real-time. MS voices are built around
two multi-waveform oscillators and a noise generator and
have access to four types of analog-style filters, dual ADSR
envelopes and two MIDI-synchable LFOs along with dedicated volume, pan and distortion controls. The Korg MS2000 is housed in a
futuristic metallic blue-green body, with the keyboard version echoing
traditional analog instruments with rosewood side panels. The rackmount MS2000R can also be used on a tabletop. Both have an angled
front panel for excellent visibility and easy operation.
There are a total of 128 programs divided
into 8 banks of 16 sounds.
Each program can contain one or two
timbres (4 voices total), effects and an
arpeggitaor— If two timbres are used,
they can be split, layered or accessed
independently from different MIDI
Each timbre consists of Osc1, Osc2, and
Noise followed by a Mixer that allows
you to adjust the levels of each.
The tone generator uses a DSP-powered
analog modeling system based on the
KORG Prophecy, Z1, and Electribe series
and has been further refined to produce a
wide range of sounds. From sharp,
cutting leads to powerful and thick pads.
the mixer, signals are sent to the
Filter, Amp, EGs (envelope), LFO, Virtual
Patch, and a Mod Sequence.
OSC1 allows you to select from eight different
oscillator algorithms, including basic analog
synth waveforms such as SAW and PWM, Cross
Modulation, and 64 DWGS (Digital Waveform
Generator System) used on the Korg DW-8000
OSC2 allows you to select from three types of
oscillator algorithms: SAW, SQU, and TRI. It
can also be used as a modulator oscillator for
the Sync or Ring modulation characteristic of
analog synthesizers.

Classic Korg Instruments
to Return in Virtual Form
Korg has a long history in the world of synthesizers and they will now be bringing many of the classic,
discontinued instruments back to life for digital studios in the form of virtual instruments - the Korg Legacy
Collection. Korg uses Component Modeling Technology (CMT), to model the components that make up the
signal chains of the instruments and how they interact in the original hardware instruments.
Currently, Korg has only confirmed that they will be producing virtual instrument versions for three of their
synths: the MS-20, Polysix, and Wavestation.

Analog Modeling Synth
The ELECTRIBE·A (EA-1) is a compact tabletop analog
modeling synth with an onboard sequencer and a host
of realtime controllers designed to allow you to create
and record phat analog synthesizer, bass, and sound
effect sounds. Operation is easy and intuitive because
the results of tweaking any of the realtime knobs is
reflected immediately in the sound. The sounds you
create on this compact synthesizer can be input to the
internal sequencer to create phrases. The ELECTRIBE·A’s
high quality sound is descendant from the DSP synthesis
technologies used on the Z1 and Trinity V3 MOSS
synthesizer engines, as well as the legendary Prophecy
synthesizer platforms. Having produced classic analog
synthesizers such as the “Mini Korg 700,” the “PS
series,” and the “MS series,” Korg has a long history of analog sound creation experience. And with that heritage, Korg’s
ELECTRIBE·A provides the ultimate in analog modeling to give you the richest, most versatile analog-style sounds that are
sure to inspire today’s electronic dance music artists- from DJs to remixers to producers.

Single Manual and
Dual-Manual Combo Organs
For years, if you wanted the sound of a real tone-wheel organ, there
was only one instrument that could deliver – until now. Korg’s
Combo Organs accurately and faithfully re-create that classic sound
in two portable models – the single manual CX-3 and dual-manual
BX-3. The original Korg CX-3 first went on sale in 1979 followed by
its dual-manual sibling, the BX-3. Both went on to become favorites
in their own right, and are still widely used. Now, using advanced
DSP technology and painstaking attention to sound, touch and
style, they have been reborn and vastly improved upon.
DSP technology makes it possible to precisely re-create the unique sound that,
until now, could only be produced by the
real thing. Two different tone-wheel
sounds are provided: “VINTAGE” and
“CLEAN”. The CX/BX-3’s amazing realism
even extends to such details as allowing
you to add the “leakage” noise generated
by the tone-wheels, and the ability to
adjust their overtone levels.
The CX/BX-3 feature two sets of nine
drawbars that duplicate the sonic characteristics of the originals – including the
proper foldback settings and harmonic
distortion. Select between the presets and
these two sets of “live” drawbars while
performing for real organ-playing
experience. An EX mode in which all 18
drawbars can be utilized as one extended
palette is provided. The resulting harmonics
and percussion timbres can be used to
create organ sounds never before heard.
One of the unique characteristics of a genuine tone-wheel organ is the percussive
effect that adds a readily identifiable sound
to a note’s attack. The CX/BX3 re-creates
that beautifully. The volume, decay rate
and harmonic pitch (2nd, 3rd) of the percussion can be adjusted – and the percussion has the proper “multi-triggered-yetmonophonic” characteristic for authentic
organ performance. You can even control
the amount of key-click heard when you
press or release a key, simulating the dirty
contacts often found on older instruments.
With 128 programs, the CX/BX-3 are
ready to cover a wide range of musical
styles including pop, hard rock, jazz,
gospel, and rhythm and blues. Detailed
drawbar and parameter settings are displayed, and can be easily edited and stored.
Proprietary “REMS” modeling technology
is applied to create effects that add further
authenticity to the organ sound. The
rotary speaker effect, so important to the
organ experience, is recreated with total
realism. You can even adjust the time
required for the rotor and horn to speed
up or slow down when switching speeds,
or stop the rotation altogether.
Three types of amp simulation are provided:
a traditional rotary speaker sound, a blend
of rotary and tube amp sounds, or a preamp-only signal. The amp simulations are
dynamic, so your sound naturally evolves
from a warm and fat sound to a natural
overdrive as your volume increases. In
addition, the classic vibrato and chorus
settings are provided along with three
types of reverb, featuring adjustable time
and depth.
Attention has been paid to the longneglected aspect of keyboard response
speed. The key scanning method used on
the CX/BX-3 starts the sound at the first
key contact, ensuring a much faster
response to your playing. Notes speak
more crisply, allowing glissandi, trills and
“smears” to be played with total authenticity.
Not limited to a vintage recreation, the
CX/BX-3 is equipped with many advanced
MIDI features. Every drawbar, switch and
control can be transmitted as MIDI data
so your performance can be perfectly
captured by a sequencer. The keyboard can
be set to transmit key dynamics via MIDI
to an external device that can even be
layered with the onboard organ sound.
The BX-3 provides all these features in a
dual manual model. Pitch Bend and
Modulation Wheels for improved MIDI
control, additional voice parameters for
even more authentic sound reproduction,
and a newly-designed “waterfall” keybed
for absolutely authentic look and feel have
all been added.
Different sets of drawbars, and Chorus/
Vibrato On/Off can be assigned independently to the BX-3’s UPPER and LOWER
manuals, just like using a real tone-wheel
organ. The single manual CX-3 gives you
this functionality via a Split Mode,
enabling you to play the single keyboard in
two sections. Or you can plug in a second
MIDI keyboard to recreate the dual manual playing experience.
Drawbars, vibrato/chorus, and percussion
switches are placed in the same location as
on the classic tone-wheel organs, demonstrating a total commitment to tradition
and playability. The sturdy wood cabinet
gives them the proper vintage look, as does
theBX-3’s wooden stand.
Concert Pianos
Korg’s Concert Series piano’s are housed in a stylish cabinet and come
with all the essentials, including two types of piano sounds and a
variety of valuable features only available from a digital piano.
And with their stunningly beautiful sound, they are sure to bring
years of musical enjoyment. The C-3200 and C-6500 feature a real
weighted hammer action keyboard that responds to every movement
of your fingers. Just like a grand piano, the keyboard has a heavier
action in the lower register and lighter action as you play upward,
giving you the truest piano feel possible. All three models offer a
three-position key touch control that lets you select light, medium,
or heavy response, so you can choose how the sound will respond to
your playing dynamics. A two-track, 14,000 note sequencer lets you
record two parts separately (like a backing track and a melody). This can be a convenient function to use when you
are practicing or working on a new lesson.
Three separate pedals are provided for
damper, soft, and sostenuto, allowing professional-level piano performance.
In addition to the standard temperament,
they provide two historical temperaments,
Kirnberger and Werckmeister.
They also support half-pedaling, a technique where you only slightly depress the
damper or soft pedals for a wide range of
tonal possibilities.
With a maximum 64-note polyphony, you’ll
have plenty of notes for full piano performance even while using the sustain pedal.
In addition to two grand piano sounds,
they give you a total of nine sounds (six on
the C-4500) including electric piano, harpsichord, organ, string, and bass, all with
the same quality as on Korg's professional
synthesizers. You can choose to split these
across the keyboard with different sounds
in the high and low ranges, or layer them
for rich new sounds.
They come with chorus and reverb effects
that enable you to further enhance its
piano and other sounds. (On the C-3200
the effects can be adjusted in three stages.).
Brilliance is also adjustable in three steps
to control the brightness of the sound.
MIDI I/O allows connection to a synthesizer or other MIDI-equipped device. (IN
addition, the C-4500 has a PC interface).
Key transpose feature lets you transpose
the pitch of the instrument so you can play
in any key with ease.
A convenient metronome function is builtin for practicing.
Utilizing Korg’s world-acclaimed technology, the C-4500 and C-6500 boast beautiful,
professional piano sound and feel. Their
tone generator is equipped with the same
HI synthesis system as best-selling Korg synthesizers, like the award-winning TRITON
and KARMA workstations. With a new
memory-rich, dynamic stereo-sampled
piano sound, the C-4500 and C-6500 sound
like a true grand piano and respond faithfully to your keyboard playing dynamics.
On the C-6500, “Dynamic Stereo Sampled”
piano sound actually switches between two
different piano samples, one played softly
and the other hard so your expressive
playing is perfectly represented.
Audio output jacks allow their sounds to be
heard through external speakers. Or, via the
audio inputs (not on the C-3200) you can
plug an outside audio source and listen
through their internal speakers.
Their sophisticated and classic design
features a brown walnut finish that looks
good in any room. On the C-6500, the key
cover that protects the keyboard is designed
to close slowly, like a fine acoustic piano,
giving an extra measure of safety in homes
with small children.
New! EC-120 Concert Piano
The EC-120 is the most affordable 88-key Concert Series Piano. Using the latest sounds
from Korg’s professional voicing technology, the 32-voice EC-120 delivers a high-quality,
spacious stereo piano sound, plus electric piano, harpsichord, vibraphone, organ and string
sounds. The EC-120’s full-scale keyboard provides the same feel as a traditional hammeraction acoustic piano and includes three levels of touch sensitivity.
Two pedals provide true piano performance, with the ability to switch the Sustain pedal to
Sostenuto function when needed. Reverb and Chorus effects add spaciousness and color to
the sounds. A built-in, 4,000 note MIDI recorder can capture and playback the user’s performance for tracking progress or playing along to.Also features MIDI I/O, two headphone
jacks, line inputs, and key transposition. Housed in a rich black walnut finish cabinet.

Effect Routing
◆ Any
8 of up to 14 possible inputs can
be processed and routed to any 8 of the
14 possible outputs. This allows the
KSP8 to be setup with 8 mono in, 8
mono out; 4 stereo in, 4 stereo out;
5.1 plus stereo I/O configurations and
anything in between.
Each input signal has its own multi-band
EQ and stereo or multi-channel panner.
Input and output routings can be saved
as part of the Studio.
Effect buses can be routed directly to the
KSP8's outputs, or to internal mixdown
buses for submixing.
The unique multi-stage metering section
allows for metering at 4 points in the
signal path, for all 8 channels.
◆ At
The Studio
the lowest level is the effect algorithm
which are designed for use in mono, stereo,
and surround applications.These high
quality, and highly tweakable algorithms
have been crafted exquisite effect presets
ranging from spacious and gorgeous, to
shocking and in your face rude.
◆ Effect presets are easily linked together to
form effect chains on up to 8 buses. You can
fully customize effect presets and chains and
have all the control they want.
◆ Parameters can be controlled in realtime and
automated via MIDI. A host of local modulation sources including up to 36 LFOs and
36 envelope generators, with 72 functions is
also available for combining control sources.
The highest level of the KSP8 architecture
is called the studio — a kind of “snapshot”
of the total state of the KSP8 at one time.
Studios contain all the physical connection

61-Note Synthesizer
The Roland V-Synth is a distinctive and inspiring
new instrument that opens up a world of new
sounds full of life and motion. The V-Synth's
sound engine is designed to be configured in several different ways by choosing from preset Structure
types--just like a semi-modular synth. Imagine a
synth that combines multiple oscillator technologies with realtime control of a waveform’s pitch,
time and formant. Now add user sampling to create entirely new waveforms, powerful COSM filtering, a killer arpeggiator, touchscreen and a host
of realtime controllers including the revolutionary
TimeTrip Pad.
61-note synthesizer with velocity and
channel aftertouch
16 part multitimbral and 24 voices of
polyphony (depending on available DSP).
Two variable oscillators, each with a choice
of three sound generation techniques.
TimeTrip Pad
Sound Generator
The PCM oscillator uses Roland's
VariPhrase technology for independently
manipulating the pitch, time and formant of the over 300 preset or user-sampled waveforms.
The second oscillator type is Analog
Modeling which offers nine traditional
waveforms, utilizing Roland's latest
modeling technology to deliver sounds
that are fat and warm.
External Audio Processing is the third
oscillator type, which allows any external
sound to be used as a synth waveform.
oscillator types can be mixed and layered in several ways, or modulated using
FM, ring mod and hard sync to create
sounds never heard before.
Realtime Control
Over dedicated 20 knobs and sliders allow
you to grab essential sound parameters
quickly and easily.
The large and intuitive touchscreen interface responds to dragging motions, allowing you to access more detailed parameters
– Imagine setting an envelope curve just by
sliding your finger on the screen.

modeling, guitar amp modeling, resonator
and Side Band Filter.
The TimeTrip Pad is an innovative controller that lets you adjust the time parameter of a waveform in real time—without
affecting pitch or formant—simply by
dragging your finger along the pad. You
can speed up a waveform, slow it down, or
freeze it at any point.
The Twin D Beam controllers provide an
expressive interface for controlling parameters in realtime

Music Production Synthesizers
The MOTIF 6, 7, and 8 are 61- and 76-note synth action, and
88-note weighted action keyboards respectively. All three models
are potent music workstations that feature the equivalent of
85MB of wave ROM, onboard sampling with 4MB of RAM
(expandable to 64MB), a high resolution 16 track sequencer
with a 200,000 MIDI note capacity, studio-quality effects processing
and extensive expansion options for customizing the MOTIF to suit
your style and taste. The MOTIF’s real-time control modes allow the
four sliders and real-time control knobs to function as 16 virtual sliders and 16 virtual knobs. These controls can even be used to as a 16
channel control surface for computer-based DAWs including Logic
Audio, Pro Tools, Cubase , and Cakewalk. The MOTIF also features a
vast arsenal of connectivity including dual 1/4˝ inputs and outputs,
USB, high-speed SCSI, and an expansion slot that can hold a card
supporting Yamaha’s mLAN interface. Or you can use that last
expansion slot for the AIEB board which adds six assignable analog outs and S/PDIF. A Smart Media slot is also included to
transfer data, using standard 3.3V media.
The 61-key MOTIF 6 and the 76-key
MOTIF 7 each feature synth action, FS
keyboards with initial touch and aftertouch.
The 88-key MOTIF 8 is a fully-weighted,
balanced hammer effect keyboard with
initial touch and aftertouch.
The MOTIF’s Modular Synthesis Plug-in
System allows you to add up to three
expansion boards, each of which adds a
completely new, full-fledged synthesizer or

Yamaha’s Modular Synthesis Plug-in System is a
revolutionary expansion system that adds a COMPLETE
any Modular-Synthesis-Plug-in-compatible synthesizer.
This amazing plug-in board lineup, which includes the
PLG150 Professional Series and the PLG100 Standard Series,
not only gives you new sounds, but also new synthesis architecture,
new effects processors, extra polyphony and more. It’s like placing an additional synthesizer or digital effects processor inside your existing keyboard—but at a
fraction of the cost!
Once a plug-in board is installed, you can directly access any of its voices and edit them from the front panel of the host
synthesizer. You can also use a PC-based software editor (bundled with each plug-in board) to edit any of the voices in
detail. Many voice parameters are MIDI controllable, which, when used in conjunction with MIDI sequencing software, allows
you to record realtime edits, such as filter cutoff frequency and effect levels, for automated voice transformation during playback.

(based on amplitude peaks and divisions of time) and
generates a corresponding MIDI sequence. This allows loops
and phrases of differing tempos to be synched together and processed using
MIDI controls to change the Tempo, Swing or any other musical parameter
controllable by MIDI. Add to this a plethora of studio and DJ-style effects, SCSI and SmartMedia storage and you realize
that the RS7000 is the ideal nerve-center for your next remix, electronica or hiphop project.
On-Board Synthesis
Internal 62-voice AWM2 tone generator
with over 1,000 onboard ROM-based synth
voices and 63 drum kit sounds.
Six types of filters, including 24dB / 18dB /
12dB Low Pass, Hi Pass, Band Pass and
Band Eliminate all controllable with a
multi-stage envelope.
The LFO section includes a number of
BPM-sync’d waveforms plus a unique user
programmable wave for creating unique
BPM-sync’d effects.
Sounds edits are stored as part of the song
and pattern data, so a virtually unlimited
range of user sounds can be created.
4-MB of onboard sampling memory,
expandable to 64 MB.
Import samples in RS7000, Wav, Aiff,

in Black and the P60S in Silver.
It features the same the GH (Graded Hammer Effect) keyboard found on more expensive Yamaha digital pianos. The GH
action of the P60 has the right keyboard feel to insure correct technique and inspire you to play more.

can get. Of course, what else would you expect from the world’s
leading manufacturer of acoustic pianos. The voices onboard the
P-120/P-120S are among the very best available on the market

The P250 features three levels of Yamaha CFIII
Grand piano stereo samples for dynamic
selection according to your touch on the
keyboard. The result is a delicacy of tone and
expression that emulates the experience of
playing a real piano. And to give the P250 an
even more richly detailed sound, note off
samples, string resonance samples and sound
board samples simulate the acoustic interaction between different notes. The sound is unmatched, and so is the touch,
thanks to the GH (Graded Hammer Effect) keyboard. The GH keyboard uses weights and mechanical linkages to achieve an
entirely new level of realism. And to go even further, the key weight is graded from heavier in the lower registers to lighter in
the higher, exactly the same as a grand piano’s. To deliver the sampled instrument voices and 128 notes of polyphony with
all the power and authority they deserve, the P250 features a new speaker system and high power stereo amplifier. The P250
features 16cm polypropylene woofers and a 30 watts per side stereo amplifier. The result is astonishingly lifelike power.

88 weighted keys (Graded Hammer)
24 Voices
◆ 64 notes polyphony
As the successor of the famous P-80 the P-90
recommends itself as a professional portable
Digital Piano for the stage. Due to the triple
Dynamic Stereo Sampling (DSS) and special
sustain and key-off samples its piano sound is
incredible natural and accurate. With its 64
notes polyphony the P-90 stands even long sustained passages. 24 Voices include not only piano sound, but organs, strings,
choirs and basses, too. Using the Split or Layer functions two Voices can be played simultaneously - in two separated keyboard
ranges (Split) or unison or layered (Layer). Eight digital effects do the polish on the sound. The Graded Hammer keyboard is
responsible for the realistic touch - like on a acoustic piano the weight of the keys increases to lower notes. Its 2 headphones
jacks and many internal demo songs make the P-90 ideal for music lessons. MIDI In/Out and the TO HOST interface
recommend it as a master keyboard for large setups or computer aided music production. Power adapter, music rest and a
sustain pedal are included.
The PF500 brings the Yamaha’s years of experience in creating great sounding digital pianos
to a new market with the fresh contemporary
design of the new PF series of products.
The Yamaha engineers built the ultimate piano
sounds into the PF500: AWM with Dynamic
Stereo Sampling (DSS). The PF500 features
three levels of Yamaha CFIII Grand piano
stereo samples for dynamic selection according
to your touch on the keyboard. The result is a
delicacy of tone and expression that emulates
the experience of playing a real piano. And to
give the PF500 an even more richly detailed
sound, note off samples, string resonance
samples and sound board samples simulate the
acoustic interaction between different notes.
The sound is unmatched, and so is the touch, thanks to the GH (Graded Hammer Effect) keyboard. Unlike conventional
digital piano keyboards that use springs or oil dampers to simulate a piano feel, the GH keyboard uses weights and
mechanical linkages to achieve an entirely new level of realism. And to go even further, the key weight is graded from heavier
in the lower registers to lighter in the higher, exactly the same as a grand piano’s.
To deliver the new sampled instrument voices with all the power and authority they deserve, the PF500 features a new

The first thing you’ll notice about the
PSR1100 and 2200 are the displays. Large,
back lit, bit mapped graphic displays are able
to show lyrics, scores and tons of information
available in seven different languages. Just
put in a disk, push play and the song starts,
the sheet music is displayed and the words to
the song appear in time to the music. If you
care to sing along, the PSR2200 includes a
microphone input with vocal harmony technology. As the song plays through the PSR2200, you read the words in the display
as you sing through the microphone, and the PSR2200 harmonizes with you in your voice in real time. Amazing.
Improvements over previous models include double the voice wave ROM memory and new and improved style and voice
content for spectacular sound, a USB connector for fast and easy computer connectivity, and improved operating functions.
Added to the PSR1100 over its previous model is the ability to display scores like the PSR2200.

The DGX500 is the first Portable Keyboard with
piano keys and is the flagship in a new series of
instruments from Yamaha called Portable Grand. It
is packed with functions and features designed
specifically for the new piano user. Included with the
DGX500 is a furniture-type stand that completes its
piano image. The Yamaha Portable Grand feature in
the DGX500 is immediately apparent when you see
the large, piano-shaped button in the center of the
front panel. When you push it, the best piano is
automatically chosen, the auto-accompaniment is
turned off, putting the keyboard in full keyboard
mode — just like a piano. A piano accompaniment
style is automatically selected and is waiting for you
if you choose to use it. Next to the piano button is a
metronome-shaped button, giving you a built in
metronome for practice.
