Why are so many people investing in portable keyboards these days? I’ll tell you why: because manufacturers like Yamaha are packing wonderful features into their portable keyboards at a lower price! That’s right – it is now possible for a beginning pianist to practice as much as he wishes at home, because Yamaha keyboards are becoming increasingly less expensive, and almost anyone is able to afford one if they really would like to acquire a keyboard.
One perfect example of these economical, yet powerful, keyboards is the Yamaha YPT-230. In addition to being a full-sized keyboard with keys as big as a grand piano’s, the YPT-230 also comes with its own dedicated set of speakers, as well as a pair of Yamaha closed-cup headset. A close-cup headset allows for a more powerful listening experience, because it blocks out the sound for the immediate environment.
This can be especially helpful when you are listening closely to the tempo and harmony of the piece that you are playing. The intensity of your playing style can also be measured more efficiently if you have a pair of Yamaha closed-cup headphones.
One of the biggest differences that separates this model from other models (not to mention other brands) is its ability to generate powerful sound, without overworking its own built-in speakers. We owe this particular feature to the keyboard’s processor which provides not only 380 plus keyboard voices, but also helps you play popular pieces by providing a built-in song database. So, if you have been wondering whether you could play the original Jingle Bells piece, you already know the answer to that: yes, because the Yamaha YPT-230 will help you learn it.
Have you ever dreamed of having your own band back you up while you are playing? Well, that dream is not far off, because the YPT-230 also has a solid and expansive Accompaniment feature. What this feature does is it allows you to play with bass guitars, drums, and so on.
The piano will provide the backup notes, so you can play an accurate, full song, even if you are at home alone with your music. It won’t take long before all of your efforts will pay off. The YPT-230’s latest features will ensure that you will still be able to play all of the musical pieces you want, without wanting to buy a more expensive keyboard. Why? Because everything you need is already in the YPT-230.
Now, some people are actually hesitant with portable keyboards because of the genres that they actually play. Let me tell you right now that this model was actually designed to support any kind of music. So, it doesn’t matter if you groove to jazz, or if you are more of a bossa nova kind of person. If you love rocking out to electronica, you can also use this keyboard to create your music. The keyboard has the capacity to adapt to your musical needs. And if built-in database doesn’t please you, you can always get MIDI files on the Internet, and play them using the keyboard.
