61Key Model Combines Professional Features and Teaching Elements With Karaoke
Yamaha unveil a new concept in fun and performance with the debut of the PSR K1
As always, realistic sound and feel are a top priority to Yamaha. The PSR K1
features 61 piano-sized, touch sensitive keys that emulate the tactile
characteristics of an acoustic grand, 32 notes of polyphony, and a selection of
some of the best voices available today-including 480 realistic instrument
voices, 100 accompaniment styles and 12 drum kits-with a generous 4MB Wave ROM
to add even more realism.
Perhaps the most unique aspect of the Yamaha PSR K1 is its function as a
comprehensive Karaoke system. Features include an integrated microphone input,
plus vocal reverb and echo. In addition, song lyrics and music notation will
scroll across the large bit-mapped LCD screen in time to the music.
The PSR K1 also functions as a self-teaching keyboard with the built-in Yamaha
Education Suite (YES II), containing exercises, a chord directory, over 100
songs to learn and other interactive features. YES II will count down the beat
and even offer feedback, just as a teacher would.
Using the USB connection and a home computer, users can have an instant music
production studio. Bundled Scorch/XF software allows digital interactive sheet
music scores to be downloaded from a PC to the keyboard and saved to SmartMedia
storage. In addition, up to five original songs (with six tracks each) may be
recorded by using the integrated sequencer.
A new innovation, Magic Performer™, allows anyone to play chords to either
the built-in songs or any song with chord information. With the onboard Music
Database, simply select from over 200 song titles, and the entire keyboard will
set itself up for that song. The Multi-Fingering Auto Accompaniment function
will automatically recognize either a single finger or full chords.
The Yamaha PSR K1 can be played through headphones or through the 20W/side
speaker system with bass ports, adding the ambience of a concert hall to any
