The Yamaha PSR-A350 61 Key Oriental Keyboard is a standard entertainment portable keyboard specialising in Eastern and Oriental content. This unit has a 61 Key Touch Sensitive keyboard, Scale Setting buttons and hundreds of high-quality voices. The built-in speakers have been finely tuned and the voice sampling greatly improved from the previous model. In total there are 613 instrument voices including 1 Sweet! Voice, 3 Cool! Voices, 3 Dynamic Voices, 45 Oriental Voices and 19 Oriental Drum Kits. There are also 210 accompaniments, with styles including 115 Oriental (26 Arabic, 25 Khaligi, 11 Magherebi, 23 Iranian, 20 Turkish and 10 Greek Styles) alongside 150 Arpeggiators (including 5 Oriental).
The scale setting buttons allow you to create custom scale tuning by altering each of the 12 scale steps. You can change the scale settings at any time, even when you are playing. The scale tune memory function allows you to store four of your own scales and recall them instantly whenever you wish. The pitch bend wheel allows you to control pitch in real-time to add realistic expression to your playing.
You can connect the keyboard to your PC via the USB to Host terminal to transfer data. 10 Style user banks allow you to store and use external Styles. You can also connect an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad to experience a new dimension of MIDI control with apps.
The 5 song/2 track recorder helps to achieve efficient practice sessions while Duo mode allows two people to play together on identical keyboard sections. This can be very useful when performing live or during lessons.
The PSR-A350 features Yamaha Education Suite lesson functions which offer a total of nine stages—three for the left hand, three for the right, and three for both hands. This helps keyboard students to practice the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to practice, and a waiting function that adjusts the tempo to the person playing, pausing the accompaniment until the correct note is played.
