Yamaha PSR-A2000 Music Workstation


Quick Overview


Yamaha PSR-A2000

This workstation is modelled on the leading Yamaha S-series. It is equipped with a host of features, many specialist voices from Arabic and Oriental traditions, and some of Yamaha’s most clear and powerful speakers.


The Yamaha PSR-A2000 is packed out with top quality voices and styles, placing an emphasis on Arabic and Oriental sounds. There are 1078 voices in total, all taken from Yamaha’s extensive archive of expertly sampled instruments; no well-known instrument is left out. The accompaniment styles included here range across Arabic, Maghreb, Khaligi, Iranian, Turkish, and Greek, as well as many other more familiar genres. By activating these styles the musician gains a full backing band that will follow their lead in whichever style is preferred.

To compliment this the PSR-A2000 also has the possibility to expand its repertoire of voices and styles. Yamaha have created a series of expansion packs that can be downloaded and installed on the workstation via the USB to device drive to do this.

As befits this multicultural sound range, the PSR-A2000 also has six pre-set scale settings, the Oriental scale feature enables modulation of the pitch levels of specific notes to create new scales, which can be stored on the workstation or saved via the USB drive to external memory sources.


The Yamaha PSR-A2000 is fitted with a joystick controller, a feature that allows the musician to affect pitch and modulation to create trills and pitch bends. This rare feature is accompanied by a host of more usual effects such as multi-pads, which can be used to call up samples, plus reverb, chorus, Master EQ, and dual and split modes.

The MegaVoice technology of the PSR-A2000, as well as ensuring the highest quality voices, exhausts the sonic capabilities of the instruments it samples, giving an exotic array of sounds that can be used to all manner of effects. For instance a guitar voice, as well as all the notes the instrument is capable of, also has open and mute strings sounds, dead notes, hammering and pull-off, and slide effects. 


The Yamaha PSR-A3000 is topped by a multilingual LCD display, facilitating the use of the workstation’s many effects and clearly representing song lyrics and scores.

The USB drives, TO HOST and TO DEVICE, enable to transfer of data files, essential to make full use of the PSR-A2000’s customisation ability, and its recording capacity. With MIDI, OUT PUT, and aux connections it can work with other instruments, be linked to a PA system, and communicate with music players and smart phones. The foot pedal and headphone jacks enhance the PSR-A2000’s versatility with optional accessories.
