Authentic expression at your fingertips
New Super Articulation Voices reproduce the actual instrument’s unique characteristics such as vibrato, tremolo and more. Many other Voices have also been enhanced for even greater realism. For example, a new feature called “Mono Legato” allows you to play trill phrases without using the joystick, perfect when playing with string instrument Voices. The sound system in PSR-A3000 has also been refined, delivering a more powerful and punchy sound than ever before.
Joystick & Live Control function
PSR-A3000 is equipped with a joystick which provides intuitive control of pitch and modulation. Now you can play with rapid trills, dynamic pitch bends and finely-nuanced modulation all from a single, easily-configured, controller. In addition to essential parameters such as Pitch Bend and Modulation, other features such as Filter, Style Track-Mute and more can be assigned and changed in real time, making it really easy to get the expressive tools you need.
Customize your instrument with Yamaha Expansion Manager
Have you ever wanted to play with more than just the preset sounds? You can now create your own original Voices and Drum kits using Yamaha Expansion Manager! Simply use samples from your own library (.wav, .aif, .aiff, .sf2) and edit a range of parameters on your computer using Yamaha Expansion Manager. You can even create and share your own original content with your friends!
Enhance your performance with audio features
If you’re incorporating audio backing tracks from your music library into your performance, the time stretch, pitch shift and vocal cancel functions of the USB audio player are valuable tools to have at your disposal. You can also connect your portable music player to the AUX IN terminal to add an additional element to your performance. The Audio Link Multi Pad function enables you to link your own audio files (sound effects, vocal phrases, etc.) and trigger them from the Multi Pads as you play.
For simple intuitive control, the PSR-A3000 comes equipped with a large color LCD that allows you to monitor the status of your instrument at a glance, and gives you easy access to valuable performance functions.
Drum Setup function for your Style performance
With Style Creator, you have the freedom to edit the parameters of a Drum kit in detail, change the drum parts using Voices from the various Drum kits or even use your own Voices created in Yamaha Expansion Manager. This means that you can personalize playing with Styles by using your own unique Drum kit!
