Groove like a pro
If you thought you needed professional-level skills or abilities to enjoy making music like a pro, think again! With the new PSR-E463, all you need to turn your ideas into music is inspiration.
Quick Sampling – The possibilities are endless
The easy to operate Quick Sampling feature means you can capture and play back your favourite sounds direct from the keyboard by using the AUX input. You can quickly capture audio from an external audio source and assign the sampled sound to the keyboard. 3 types of samples can be played back as your part of your performance.
• Normal: The pitch of the sound varies depending on the key you play.
• Loop: The sample is played in a loop without changing the pitch.
• One-shot: The sample is played only once without changing the pitch.
Groove Creator – Make music like a DJ
You can perform the latest musical styles from the keyboard like a DJ – lay down a beat, tweak the groove, adjust the mix and get the party started! You can easily create your own “groove” by turning each track on/off, altering sections, or adding various effects using the live control knobs. In addition to western EDM sounds, Groove Creator supports contemporary dance music from around the world! Once you have made a cool track, save it to a USB device as an audio file.

Two assignable, real-time control knobs let you filter and adjust your sound just like an analog synthesizer. 10 DSP effects can be assigned and controlled by the knobs for dynamic and expressive live performance. The Pitch Bend wheel adjusts the pitch of the sound bringing voices like the Guitar, Sax and Trumpet to life. “Target” button supports quick target change of effect destination.
You can record your performances to a USB flash drive. The USB-to-Device terminal on the instrument lets you load and save your settings and songs to a USB flash drive, as well as transfer data from your PC.
