what to buy
by: Dick Rector

Hi Chris,

What to get for a beginner!!

First in short, a keyboard (any keyboard) has nothing to do with a computer as Apple, Mac or PC. It has it's own 'operating' system so to
speak and that is not exactly the same as a computer. So whatever keyboard or digital piano you are interested in is fine for studying and playing.
Compatibility comes only in question when you are planning to connect keyboard and computer together when you want to 'edit, compose, make
your own styles or voices' and so on. But in that case you only have to install the correct DRIVERS and you need 'sequencer' software to be
installed. Having said this last bit: If you don't know much about keyboards yet, you might as well forget this for the time being.

All depending on budget of course but If you don't go for the cheapest models you are able to record and playback the 'performance' on the
keyboard itself. Sounds much better by the way than any soundcard on a computer can produce! I have nothing to do with any factory but obvious
I am a Yamaha fan and they do have the largest choice in keyboards and digital piano’s.
If you want to compare models and their possibilities you can go to:
and download the manuals.
Find a good dealer and have the various models demonstrated, that is the best advice I can give. Again, depending on budget, you get what you pay for.

The PSR E223 is a very basic keyboard with little possibilities.
The keys are NOT touch-sensitive and you can not load external files.

PSR E413 and special PSR 423 are very good starter keyboards and as the 423 is a ‘basic’ arranger keyboard you can load and ‘tweak’ external styles, record and play-back etc.

Hope this helps a bit without confusing to much.
