Manufacturer's ID: PSR-A3000
What we say:
Yamaha’s PSR-A3000 is a powerful piece of hardware with an international selection of sounds for all kinds of exotic music production.
The A-3000 is a 5 octave digital workstation with a colour screen, a large amount of buttons & controls and built in speakers for instant plug-in-&-play satisfaction!
This keyboard differs from the rest of the PSR range in its world music focus: you can utilise controls on the left of the front panel to change sale tunings and allow for microtonal variations on the keyboard, perfect for playing authentic middle eastern and Arabic musical styles as well as Baltic music. Many of the song styles are what is referred to as ‘Oriental’ but it helps to think a little more broadly than that. Syncopated rhythms and relatively unusual instruments are available to spice up your songs and an assignable Joystick is available to mimic instrument inflections as well as control filters and mutes etc. With a little foresight, you can be very expressive with this!
There are 997 voices and 58 kits including 171 Oriental voices and 25 Oriental Kits. You can add Distortion and Reverb to these voices too, opening up your sonic palette a little with some professional results.
A-3000 will be the perfect instrument for musicians looking to create entire pieces of music using instruments from all over the world. You certainly get all of the usual pianos, organs, strings and so on but the potential here for more Eastern and Far Eastern musical styles is great.

The new Oriental Super Articulation Voices reproduce the actual instrument’s unique characteristics such as vibrato, tremolo and more. 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 Oriental 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 an instant, making it really easy to add a unique flair to your performance!
