Make your performances of traditional and modern oriental music more powerful with newly sampled instruments and 210 fresh Styles. Oud, Qanoon, Nay, and many other Voices sound incredibly realistic thanks to new velocity-sensitive portamento, Super Articulation! Voices, and dedicated oriental instrument waveforms that are 10 times larger than in previous model.

Program your original Voices and Styles with the PSR-A5000. Expansion memory has been increased to 1 GB (approx.). It allows you to create and store various and higher quality contents. The PSR-A5000 supports Styles with individual time signatures for each variation, which increases your possibilities in Style programming.

Istanbul strings

Istanbul Strings are one of the most popular strings section in Turkey. Their sound has been recorded innumerable times and can be found on many current music productions, not only in Turkey but also on international records. The PSR-A5000 offers Istanbul Strings samples for the first time in arranger workstation.

Drums and percussion

Expanded drum kit functionality allows you to play 128 mapped instruments from a single kit. Great care has been taken with drum mapping to provide an optimized, intuitive layout for oriental finger drumming on a keyboard. Thanks to newly added key-off notes, drums and percussion Voices sound very natural and make performance and programming easier. Revo! SFX kits provide more natural drum rolls and enhanced expressiveness.

Iconic oriental instruments

Most of important oriental instruments have been newly sampled with more attention to detail than ever before. They feature multiple dynamic layers, various new playing Styles and were mixed down in stereo. Yamaha provides Revo! SFX kits with Wave Cycling technology. Super Articulation! technology is applied to control the different articulations. Voice content is conveniently categorized for easy access.

New Styles

210 new oriental Styles with richer sound dynamics and more power than ever before. Choose Styles from a variety of genres, such as Khaleeji (36 Styles), Shami (35 Styles), Masri (15 Styles), Maghrebi (50 Styles), Persian (43 Styles), and Turkish (31 Styles).

Style Section Time Signatures let you use a range of time signatures within a single Style, which means that you can combine different musical parts. With the Style Section Reset function, you can rewind the rhythm of the Style to beat 1 immediately. This is also helpful when you need to quickly synchronize your performance on stage. Style content is categorized to be convenient for players of oriental music.

Chord looper

Chord Looper lets you record a chord sequence and play it back, freeing your left hand from playing chords and providing new ways to enhance your performance. Since the chords play back in a loop, you don’t need to repeat the chord pattern manually anymore, which lets you focus on your performance and other operations.

User interface

Scale Tune buttons offer easy access during live performances. Individual note pitches can be easily modified and stored as your own new scales to Scale Tune Memories. Assign your favorite function/parameter to Live Control knobs, Joystick, Assignable buttons, Foot Pedals and Home shortcuts. FSB Keyboard offers remarkable playability thanks to its heavier initial key resistance and greater key travel and refined keyboard structure.

The 7-inch touch display and new graphic user interface provide for instinctive control over the instrument's powerful features.

Sub output

The PSR-A5000 features two sub line-out connections that you can use to adapt your sound to various situations. Try routing bass through a separate subwoofer for a fuller, more powerful bottom end, or send parts and drum instruments to an external console to shape your sound further.

New portamento

Newly added Crossfade Portamento with velocity and time related parameters. Transition speed and velocity of following notes are editable, allowing smooth, expressive transitions between successive notes. Check out "Audio & Video" tab to easily recognize the natural behavior of the instruments achieved with new portamento.
