Yamaha PSR-E223 Can I split the voice on the keyboard?

by Leslie
(Kansas City)

I realize I bought a lower end keyboard and it will not do everything but I would like to play one voice with the right hand and different voice with the left. I don't see anything in the manual about that. I'd also like to layer voices like play piano with strings over it. Any ideas? Is this possible. Thanks.

Yamaha psr223E can be splitted
by: CHIMA

My persistent trail and error on yamaha psr223E has aimed me a success and now I can split or play two voices of my choice one at my right and another at my left hand side. THIS IS HOW IT WORKS.
(1}choose any voice you like to play on your left handside(eg. No.180=DIRGI-SAW)
(2}Press demo botton twice( 1st touch is for demo song while the 2nd touch is for SPLIT CONTROL).
(3}choose any voice you wish(eg. No.18=Progress...) but this No.3 is not neccessary asuch.
(4}look at top left side of the keyboard near Wait key/botton, very close to sign signal botton and tempo botton you will see two close bottons called LEFT/RIGHT botton (L/R), then press and hold the two(L/R) botton for 3 to 4 seconds.
(5}look at the LCD/Screen immediately and you will see "BOTHHANDS" appeared on LCD. This is a comfermation that all the above steps was followed if not, go back and start again.
(6}press voice botton and hold for 5 to 7 seconds.
(7}Look on the LCD/Screen and you will see "SOUNDVOICE" appeared on the LCD/Screen. This is the final stage.
(8}Pls go to the voice and choose the one you like for your right-hand while the Left side keys(52) will be playing the initial voice you selected.
THIS IS VERY SIMPLE and SHORT. Now your yamaha PSR223E plays DUAL voice, goodluck and God bless you.

guys i split the voice on mine,
by: jake

but, it seemed like it was more of a glitch than a feature (alhtough i love doing it now). here is how i got it to split:

hit song and pick one (i pick the duet scarborough, like 62 or something), then hit "waiting" from the learning keys on the left. hold down "right" and "left" so that both hands are part of it. after a few seconds, i hit "listen and learn", i play along for a few riffs, then i hit "pause"

from here i can hit "voice" it will then keep the piano sound on the left, and any voice i pick on the right hand.

i know, very tricky.. and it seems to easily get out of whack if you dont follow these steps .. like i said, it seems i found it more by accident.

if you know if this is actually supposed to work like this, or how to get a different voice than piano on the left side, let me know

Layering the Keyboard
by: Anonymous

Thanks Guys, I appreciate your comments. I contacted Yamaha and with this keyboard I cannot layer my voices. I can split the voices at the split point and play one sound with the left hand and a different one with the right but I cannot play two sounds layered on top of each other. What I wanted was to play piano with strings on top for a richer, fuller sound. If I want to do that I have to get the next higher class of keyboard. So this keyboard is currently on Craig's list. I should have read more about the keyboard before I bought it.

No sorry
by: Tristan

I got also this synth and unfortunately it's not possible, i was looking for it also but the split point is only used for the chord use.
