Hello. Getting back into keyboarding after many years. Had piano and accordion lessons as a kid. Won a cheapo guitar when I was 13 and fooled around with it until a got a Guild model. Had a Casio keyboard for several years. Also started to learn the ukulele but developed "trigger" finger (unable to bend the digit) in my left hand in November 2016. Well, that stopped me from playing the ukulele. Just bought a 61 key keyboard/arranger and getting back into playing music.

Ray:

Started playing the ukulele after living in Hawaii for many years. Unfortunately, the finger problem has made it difficult and perhaps impossible.

Yes, there is a ukulele voice on the 453. But I also want to play a variety of music.

Thanks Guys. Sorry, didn't know that I could end a post with a name. Is there a way to have it automatically entered after each post? Haven't learned all of the functions of this forum.

:)

Yamaha PSR E453.

I have the two previous models, the PSR-E443 and E433, as well as the YPT-400 which is just another name for the PSR-E403. So I can try to help with the PSR-E453 as needed, and am interested in hearing about the newer features that weren't on the earlier models, such as the DSP effects. :)

To add or edit signature lines, click on your name up in the right-hand corner of the forum header, where it says "New Posts Pugetsound Inbox Alerts." Then on the left side of your profile page, under "Settings," click on "Signature" and it will go to a page where you can edit and save your signature lines. If it won't let you add a signature until after you've made a certain number of posts, just try again later after you've posted a bit.

'Scuse my ignorance Sea, but what are you talking about here? What are DSP effects?
My kb has a DSP button which is always turned on. I was advised to leave it on because it makes no difference if turned off. I have tried my tunes with it off and true there is no difference. So what is the point of it.

What keyboard model do you have, Ray?

"DSP" stands for "digital signal processing," and in general refers to analyzing and modifying a digital signal for some purpose. For instance, you might want to "clean up" an audio signal by removing noise and distortion. But it doesn't have to be an audio signal-- it could be video, or text, or any other type of digital information.

In music, it's typically used to add "effects" to a sound, such as reverb, chorus, and any number of other things-- rotary speaker effects, delays, distortion, adding or emphasizing harmonics, removing harmonics, shifting the pitch, etc. In each case the original sound is digitally analyzed and processed to change it in some manner to achieve some result.

The most commonly-used audio DSP effects seem to be reverb and chorus, so they're often given their own dedicated sets of controls or functions or parameters, separate from any other DSP effects-- e.g., Reverb Type and Reverb Level, Chorus Type and Chorus Level, and then DSP Type and DSP Level, as though reverb and chorus were not DSP effects, even though they really are. That way you can add reverb, plus chorus, plus "other DSP effect" to a sound, rather than just "DSP effect" and having to choose between reverb, chorus, distortion, etc.

Of course, the PSR-E443 and its predecessors do have reverb and chorus, so they have DSP effects-- but they don't have the wider variety of miscellaneous DSP effects such as found on the PSR-S and Tyros models. The PSR-E453 has a handful of additional types of DSP effects, but not the number and variety of DSP effects that the PSR-S and Tyros models have.

Ah, then you've got some nice DSP effects to tinker with, I guess! :)
