The PSR-E463 is the best beginner and student level keyboard for performing various styles of music, from the latest hits to vinyl favourites. It features a 61-key touch responsive keyboard with powerful on-board speakers and easy-to-use professional features like assignable Live Control dials, Quick Sampling, the Groove Creator and a USB Audio Recorder.
The easy to operate Quick Sampling feature means you can capture and play back your favourite sounds direct from the keyboard by using the AUX input.
You can perform the latest musical styles from the keyboard like a DJ - lay down a beat, tweak the groove, adjust the mix and get the party started!
We have a proud history of manufacturing just about every kind of musical instrument. When it comes to reproducing the sound of these instruments in a keyboard, the results are detailed and high-quality.
The PSR-E463 features a comprehensive library of 758 instrument Voices that will allow you to enjoy playing any musical genre.
235 Auto Accompaniment Styles provide real-time backing tracks based on the chords you play.
The onboard Groove Creator supports western EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and various worldwide EDM grooves, allowing you to find just what you're looking for.
Experience instant inspiration with the PSR-E463's Arpeggiator. It's Hold Mode and allocated key-range help keep your hands on the keys rather than the buttons, allowing you to improvise over the patterns. The 150 included Arpeggio patterns adjust and morph around the notes and chords you play on the keyboard allowing for almost limitless creativity.
The PSR-E463's USB-To-Host port sends and receives both MIDI data and high quality digital audio transfer to and from iPads, iPhones, Macs and Windows PC. This means that recording into music production apps such as Cubasis and Cubase is easier than ever before, and a whole world of virtual instrument apps can be played using the PSR-E463's keys.
Want to learn or play along to music from your Apple Music Library or Spotify playlists? Just connect an iPhone, iPad, Android or iPod device† to the AUX-In socket and press play. The music can play through the PSR-E463's speakers whilst the built-in advanced Melody Suppressor lowers the volume of vocals and melody lines of the original recordings, leaving that part open for you to play or sing**.
†A cable appropriate to your device will be required (not included). Only devices offering an analogue audio output are compatible; for recent iPhones (including the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X), please use the Lightning-to-Headphone adapter included with your phone.
*For iOS device connection, refer to the "iPhone / iPad Connection Manual"
**Depending on the song, the volume of the melody part may not be affected.
You can also record and save your performances as true audio files or as MIDI files to a USB flash drive. The USB-to-Device connection on the keyboard lets you load and save your settings and songs to a USB flash drive, as well as transfer data from your PC.
