Rapid advances in technology have left musicians with large amounts of material on “older,” but still usable, removable storage options–such as floppy disks–and an increasingly limited selection of instruments that will accept these storage formats. Yamaha addresses this problem with the debut of the Yamaha PSR450.
The Yamaha PSR450 is a keyboard in a portable package with floppy drive compatibility, opening up the ease and wealth of disk-based resources like vintage educational materials, personally recorded disks and Yamaha Disk Orchestra and Styles collections.
The Yamaha PSR450 features 32 notes of polyphony, 135 built-in styles and 491 XGlite/GM voices–including authentic sax, trumpet and flute sounds from the “Sweet!” set, organ from the “Cool!” collection and orchestra voice from the “Live!” group. The 61-key keyboard contains Split and Layer configurations, plus a pitch bend wheel and two-way stereo speakers.
An integrated 3.5-in. 2 HD floppy disk drive is Style File format and Standard MIDI File format compatible. The Yamaha PSR-450 also contains a music database with 227 song titles with automatic setup for each song, a 6-track sequencer for recording songs and performances, plus MIDI In/Out.
