    Is there a way to adjust volumes on each instrument on my PSR E 433?

    Yes, you can go into the Function menu and modify the volumes for the Main Voice, Dual Voice, and/or Split Voice. Just be sure you do that after you've selected the instrument sound for each voice, rather than before, because whenever you select a voice the keyboard will automatically change the various parameters to certain defaults which are supposed to sound good for that voice.

    Also, you should always select the Main Voice first, followed by the Dual Voice, Split Voice, Reverb Type, Chorus Type, and other settings (Harmony Type, Arpeggio Type, etc.), because when you pick the Main Voice the keyboard will automatically change the Dual Voice, Reverb Type, Chorus Type, Harmony Type, Arpeggio Type, etc.-- and possibly, but not always, the Split Voice as well.

    So the order should go something like the following:

    - Select the Main Voice you want to use.
    - If desired, turn the Dual Voice on and select the Dual Voice you want to use.
    - If desired, turn the Split Voice on and select the Split Voice you want to use.
    - Select the Reverb Type you want to use.
    - Select the Chorus Type you want to use.
    - If desired, turn the Harmony or Arpeggio on and select the Harmony Type or Arpeggio Type you want to use. (You can use Harmony or Arpeggio, but not both at once.)
    - Go into the Function menu and change the various settings as desired-- Main Volume, Main Pan, Main Octave, Main Reverb Depth, Main Chorus Depth, Main EG Attack Time, Main EG Release Time, Main LPF Cutoff Frequency, Main LPF Resonance Level, Dual Voice settings, Split Voice settings, Harmony settings, Arpeggio settings, etc.

    Once you're done, you can save the settings to a Registration for later recall.

    Note that you can specify the overall volume of the auto accompaniment using the Style Volume and Pattern Volume functions, but there are no functions for setting the volumes of the individual tracks of the Style or Pattern as is possible on the PSR-S models. However, if you're using an external Style file, you can load the Style file into a utility program to adjust the track volumes and save the new settings.
