Fully-equipped PSR-series keyboard

Yamaha PSR-E473 keyboard, front view

The Yamaha PSR-E473 is a portable keyboard for practising and composing musical pieces, and this model differs from the Yamaha PSR-E373 in that features a larger number of voices, a 64-voice polyphony, and additional functions which include a pitch bend wheel. The 14 Super Artificial Lite Voices provide a replication of sound and velocity reponse that is true to the original sampled instruments, and in addition to the recorder, which is capable of recording both audio and MIDI data, this keyboard includes a built-in microphone input to allow the user to record vocals as well as a USB port for transferring MIDI data to a computer. Additional opportunities for producing music are provided by the "Groove Creator" and "Quick Sampling" programmes (for creating rhythms and incorporating audio files, respectively). All of these features make the PSR-E473 a powerful keyboard with an integrated workstation that can be used to record entire songs.

Voice selection buttons on the Yamaha PSR-E473

A voice for each hand

The Yamaha PSR-EW473 features 61 keys whose touch response can be adjusted from "soft" to "hard", and the velocity sensitivity can also be deactivated entirely by selecting the "fixed" option. The buttons adjacent to the display can be used to select the desired voice, practice song, and accompaniment style, and the user can also directly recall one of the 820 voices using the number keys rather than manually searching. These voices include acoustic and electric pianos, organs, string and wind instruments, guitars and basses, synth sounds, percussion, and even sound effects. It is also possible to layer two sounds on the keyboard thanks to the "Dual Voice" function, and the keyboard can be configured to allow each hand to play a different voice. The sound of the voices can be further enhanced with the Yamaha PSR-E473's DSP and motion effects, the latter of which include various filter, pitch, and modulation effects.

For expressive performances and productions

The Yamaha PSR-E473 has been designed for up-and-coming keyboard players looking for a versatile and authentic-sounding practice instrument that allows vocals to be performed at the same time. Vocals can also be enhanced with reverb and chorus effects for a more vivid performance, and backing tracks from external signal sources such as smartphones can be fed in via the AUX input on the rear of the keyboard. The Live Control section's rotary controls, labelled A and B, are assignable to specific functions in order to control parameters, e.g. to shape effects during the performance. Connecting the Yamaha PSR-E473 to a computer via the USB port (located on the rear) also allows the user to play virtual instruments from any DAW using the keyboard, which can also run on battery power (requiring six AA batteries, sold separately), so on-stage performances are possible whenever and wherever, even if no mains power connection is available.

About Yamaha

For decades, Yamaha has been one of the world’s best-known manufacturers of musical instruments and audio technology. The Japanese company’s long history began at the end of the 19th century with the harmonium. The product range has constantly expanded since then, which has made Yamaha one of the few manufacturers today to offer almost the entire range of existing musical instruments: From upright and grand pianos to guitars, wind instruments, and bowed string instruments and from drums and percussion to electronic keyboards and synthesizers. Yamaha is also a major force in the field of audio engineering as a manufacturer of mixing consoles, amplifiers, PA systems, and more. Yamaha's guiding principle is to combine traditional craftsmanship with state-of-the-art technology.

Extensive recording options

Players can record their entire performance with the Yamaha PSR-E473 as a .WAV file using the onboard recorder and take it with them on a USB stick. All files are created in 44.1kHz/16-bit quality. When recording MIDI data, users can store up to 10 recordings as songs with up to 19,000 notes, which can also be stored on a USB flash drive. Songs can subsequently be edited and sounds replaced in any DAW via the MIDI data, and Yamaha's "Rec'n'Share" app allows synchronous recording of audio from the keyboard with a video shot on a smartphone, a feature that makes it possible for players to quickly and easily record videos of their performances and publish these on their social media channels.

Another successful hit by Yamaha
GeSa26 13.09.2022
After long contemplations decided to got with the new PSR E473 and there wasn't a moment where I was disappointed (other than me now craving for a full 88 keyboard :D ). Good quality, nice sound, the speakers with boost are quite strong even for a bigger room. Nice feeling keys and action.

Il est super il possède des sons bien réaliste comme le piano, les violons, les guitares et la flûte de pan a un son super . Les rythmes sont parfait tous les styles y sont présent des styles Dance aux rythmes Latinos d'hier et d'aujourd'hui . On peut s'enregistrer directement sur une clé USB. On peut transformer les sons et l' Arrpégiateur est présent comme sur les synthétiseurs professionnels . Pas déçu de mon achat. Le service expédition de THOMANN Irréprochable. Musicalement.

Bin zufrieden damit
JacobGuitar210 14.01.2023
Das Keyboard ist durchaus zu empfehlen.

Es verfĂĽgt ĂĽber einen sehr realistisch klingenden Klaviersound, welcher seit dieser Yamaha Generation von PSR-E Keyboards offenbar neu ist. Der alte ist auf Speicherplatz Nr. 2 ebenfalls vorhanden.

Das Keyboard hat eine schier endlose Menge an Funktionen, welche man verwenden kann oder nicht. Bei mir kommen hauptsächlich die Standard-Begleitschlagzeugstile zum Einsatz (Styles) und hiervon gibt für verschiedenste Musikstile viele Varianten.

Der Klang der Lautsprecher ist sehr ausgewogen.

Da ich wenige der Funktionen verwende hätte ich vermutlich auch zum Modell E373 greifen können. Der Vorteil vom E373 ist, dass wenn man einen Schlagzeugrhytmus aufnehmen möchte, dann ist direkt vor den Tasten aufgedruckt, welche Taste welchem Schlaginstrument zugeordnet ist. Beim E473 tappt man für diese Anwendung im Dunkeln.

Très bon clavier
Grégos23 11.08.2022
Commençons pas ce qui m'a (un peu) gêné au début : il faut un peu de temps pour s'habituer au toucher. Ce n'est pas du tout celui d'un piano et les touches sont glissantes, ce qui nous amène à faire des "pains" sur des morceaux rapides ou difficiles si on n'est pas très concentré.
En outre, le toucher dynamique est vraiment sensible (surtout avec certains sons de pianos) et le son en est affecté, pas seulement sur le volume.
Cela dit, jouer du piano n'est qu'une des options, très nombreuses, que propose ce clavier. On peut faire un groupe à soi tout seul, avec !
Et tout ce que propose ce clavier est accessible très facilement, beaucoup plus que ce que j'ai vu jusqu'ici (il est vrai que mon dernier clavier arrangeur datait de la fin des années 90, le toucher n'était pas terrible non plus, d'ailleurs ;-))
Mes filles (6 et 8 ans) l'adorent, elles s'en servent avec une intuition incroyable.
