Incredible Sounds Without
The PSR2000 is loaded with 16MB of amazing voices. In fact, there are well
over seven hundred sounds including beautiful grand pianos, rich acoustic
instruments, sparkling synthesizers and a full set of Yamaha XG voices. You can
rest assured that XG and General MIDI sequences will sound their best when
played back on the PSR2000.
Large Full Dot LCD with Song Lyric Display & Score display
Sing along with your favorite songs! The large LCD featured on these
keyboards displays song lyric data from Karaoke disks in real-time for endless
singing enjoyment. This unique display also makes keyboard operation easier and
more convenient by displaying more information at once. On the PSR2000 you can
display the notation for your own recordings as well as commercially available
song data and have the notation automatically shown on the display — in
whatever size or zoom level you want. You can choose the tracks you wish to
display, or let the keyboard automatically select the tracks. The Score display
will even show you the names of the notes, if you wish. This powerful feature
not only lets you view the entire score, it shows where you are in the piece
with the help of a moving cursor that follows along with playback.
The PSR2000 has the same Vocal Harmony function as the PSR-9000 and 9000
Pro. Hook a microphone up to the PSR2000, sing into it, and you can sound like
a choir. You can assign the Vocal Harmony to create harmony from chords in your
left hand, notes you play with your right hand or from MIDI song files that
contain harmony information. You can even adjust the balance between your voice
and your "harmony" voices — or turn off your voice altogether
and sing in perfect pitch! Pressing the "Mic Setting" button allows
you to adjust the 3-band sweepable EQ, Noise Gate and Compressor.
The vocal harmonizer in the PSR2000 can harmonize any sound it
"hears" so you could, for example, play a live trumpet or sax (or
violin, flute etc.) and have the 2000 re-create a complete horn section for
you. Think of the possibilities!
Incredible Music Styles
The PSR2000 contains a wealth of fully arranged music styles, including
specially designed Pianist Styles, to backup your musical performance. Yamaha
style makers around the world have been working very hard to create some
wonderful new styles for this release of the PSR- 2000. Each style has 3
Intros, Main A/B/C/D variations, and 3 Endings, as well as four fill-in
patterns for added musical expression. You can change the instrument part
settings of any music style, or even create your own custom styles.
The organ voice of the PSR2000 has adjusp flute settings just like a
vintage organ. Drawbars are displayed on the LCD panel so you can conveniently
see the footage settings of each flute at a glance. Choose from 10 presets or
save your own User setups. You control the type (Vintage or Sine), Rotary Speed
(slow or fast), Vibrato on/off, depth & speed, attack and DSP effects. The
sound can be incredibly warm or have that cutting edge — the choice is up
Superb Digitally Sampled Voices
The PSR2000 is loaded with well over 700 high-quality AWM (Advanced Wave
Memory) voices including 480 XG voices, a wide variety of drum kits, and more
than 200 amazing panel voices, also featured is an incredible sounding Grand
Piano voice. "Sweet, Cool & Live" Voices are taken from Yamahas
flagship 9000 Pro. And with an outstanding 64-note polyphony for the PSR2000,
you can compose complex arrangements without worrying about voices dropping out
of the mix.
Keyboard operation has never been easier! Pressing the Music Finder button
calls up an on-screen selection of songs by title. Simply select one of your
favorite songs and the keyboard is instantly set up and ready to play. The
correct tempo, matching style and appropriate sound(s) for the melody are just
waiting for you to start playing. Take your music to new heights by inputting
your own Music Finder songs. You could put in your favorite music book so that
all you have to do is select the song and the keyboard is ready to play. This
is a great tool for professionals as well as home hobbyists.
Built-in Floppy Disk Drive
The PSR2000 is equipped with a floppy disk drive that allows you to play
back MIDI song data in a variety of formats — including SMF 0 and format
1, DOC, XG and Disklavier formats — and gives you the benefit of unlimited
storage for your original musical compositions. The PSR2000 also features
Quickstart On/Off (MIDI files play immediately after touching Start button) and
Chain Play On/Off (advances to next song and starts playing).
Simultaneous Style & Song Playback
Imagine being able to play a MIDI file and a Style at the same time. This
keyboard has separate controls for song and style playback. The style will
automatically sync to the MIDI file. Maybe youd like to try one of your
favorite songs with a different rhythm. If you are a writer, maybe youd like
to try your song with many different styles to see what it sounds like. If the
song has chord data in it (many XG files contain the chord data or you can
input it using the keyboard or software programs like XGworks), the style will
actually follow the chords in the MIDI file and play a complete instrumental
background. Its unique and different and just one of the cool new features of
16-Track Sequencer & Lyric Editor
Whether youre an enthusiastic beginner, a serious composer, or anything
in-between, the PSR2000s 16-track sequencer has the power to release your
musical talent. Arrange up to 16 different instrument parts to create your own
fully orchestrated songs. A variety of recording modes and editing functions
are available to suit your playing style. You can even see the notes displayed
on the large LCD screen (scoring ability).
Editing is easy and intuitive and offers cut, copy and paste features, just
like a computer! Once you enter the Song Creator mode, youll notice that we
have a new section that allows you to input lyric data into songs. Very cool.
Once you enter the lyrics, they scroll by as the song plays back — you
just have to follow the bouncing ball.
MIDI / PC Interface
Expand your musical possibilities by connecting the keyboard to external
MIDI devices or even to a personal computer. The PC Interface jack on the
PSR2000 can connect directly to a MAC™ or PC allowing you to take
advantage of the vast amount of music software and MIDI files available on the
market and online.
Dynamic two-way stereo speakers effectively reproduce the PSR2000s high
quality voices with rich, full-range sound. The keyboards built-in ports
enhance lower frequencies.
One Touch Setting
The One Touch Setting (OTS) function automatically configures keyboard
parameters, such as melody voice selection, tempo, and accompaniment volume, to
optimally match each music style you select. This feature has been improved on
the PSR2000. You can, if you like, have the OTS advance automatically with the
4 Main Sections of a style for ultimate hands-free operation.
Digital Effects Processor
Create rich timbres and professional mixes with the PSR2000s built-in
digital effects processor. A wide variety of effects, from warm sounding
reverbs and choruses to extreme delays and distortion are provided for you to
add depth to any of the voices. The PSR2000 also includes several Multi Effects
and Master EQ that lets you precisely shape the sound.
Direct Access eliminates navigating through multiple menus. Press any
function button while holding down the Direct Access button, and the display
will instantly jump to the screen associated with that function. Convenient for
quickly setting voice, auto accompaniment and sequencer parameters, etc.
The PSR2000 features a new 580KB User Memory that allows you to store
songs, registrations, styles and edited voices for instant access. The User
Memory works just like a hard disk. You can create directories (for example a
Songs directory) for storing and organizing your information. For even more
convenience, there are dedicated buttons on the PSR2000 for User Voices and
User Styles so that you can easily access your stored data. Saving, customizing
and retrieving your personal data has never been easier!
