Yamaha PSR-225
There are a gazillion different PSR models and Yamaha has been making them for many years. This particular model is old but when I play the newer models in the local music store they don't seem that much different in terms of sound or features. These things are everywhere and they can be gotten cheap. They are inexpensive light weight non-professional keyboards that feature the usual array of sounds and functions you typically find in these type keyboards. Here is a list of some of the features. Yamaha"s great piano sound for inexpensive keyboards, tons of AMW and GM sounds, effects, multi track sequencer, auto rhythms with section options and fills, one note and chord type auto accompaniment, loads of auto styles, midi in/out, damper pedal out, built in speakers, line outs etc. However there is no expression or bend wheel.


These keyboards are remarkably fun and useful. The main drawback is that the interface (at least on this particular model) can be very cumbersome and hard to read. It uses yellow words and numbers on top of a silver background and its very difficult to see unless you are in well lit surroundings. Accessing some functions via the multi function buttons and menus can be a real chore. However there is a useful dial for accessing items and there is a nice one touch button that allows the user to instantly return to the basic piano sound from anywhere. However the keyboard actually does a lot and I guess you would have to be an engineer to figure out how to access all this stuff in a small space.


The sound output by this keyboard is not of professional quality and there is some low level background noise. However the sounds are remarkably good especially the piano sound for such a cheap keyboard. Personally I have had a lot of fun with mine and I like the fact the you can move it around easily or stand it up on its end and store it in the corner. I play mine for fun and to write melodies with. Some of the rhythms are very fun and useful too. If you are interested in an inexpensive keyboard I would definitely look at any Yamaha brand PSR. There are tons of em out there so there is no reason to pay a lot for one. The piano sound is probably unbeatable in this price range.

Yamaha PSR-225
Integrated sampler (but complicated)

Reverbs ok


Unfortunately, little changed rhythms.


Editing sounds pretty tedious.


Box too mechanical rhythms (not enough swing), too many Latin rhythms, uptempo enough to use ... I want to do! The overall good quality.
I've had more than 10 years.
Sounds correct and many, very light background noise though. Organ sounds convincing.

Yamaha PSR-225
Type arranger keyboard, the sound effects pretty good, apart from a few instrument sounds unusable!
connectivity, everything is there! except perhaps the lack noon Thru ...
over 200 different sounds, but a lot of duplicates! sounds are not editable!
The touch keyboard is bad! (Too soft) sluggish, ill-suited for pianos, which are very average!
I use the right hand in narrative, with the left hand on my L100p Hammond.
I gave him a jack adapted to exploit its internal amplification, "via midi" Hammond XM2 Module + XMC2 to serve nomadic when I go on vacation!


Sounds pretty simple configuration, using the numeric keypad! for effects, we must look a little further!
The French manual is quite explicit!
The sounds are not editable!


It's been 10 years that I use, and I draw my bow on the strength and reliability of the product!
the feature that I like least is the keyboard too soft though, well made!
Value, the more correct for small budgets!
I would do this choice of course!

Yamaha PSR-225
5 octave keyboard, touch dynamic, headphone / to, among sustain pedal, midi in out, 238 sounds (100 x 2) rhythms, 8-track sequencer, support auto, 9 effects, dual and harmony, learning system agreements. + Full feature packed


Although it is packed with features it is very simple to use as the main functions is to hand. The edition of the sounds, rhythms, and the menu of the sequencer
have direct access. In fact most of the functions have their own button.c is intuitive, the manual I did not even read.


I have 3 years. I am a pianist and I also have a Roland FP8 for the piano and feel heavy, and a roland d20 with other sounds (I will change).
I was looking for a small portable keyboard, and lightweight amplifier that works on batteries so as not to be frustrated when other guitarists and percussionists boeuuuuffer put themselves on the grass. As I did not want to break my piggy bank but I wanted to be when even sounds correct because I listen SEVERAL keyboards in this price game and I chose it for its sounds.
I use sounds: pianos (which are when the unit is ramplifi)
The electric piano, trs good
The organs are not bad
vibraphone not bad either
full complete set of drums
good low
jazz guitar rhythm plays ok
trs the beautiful tablecloths of strings
a beautiful violin solo
a good tenor sax and a good trumpet mouth
a beautiful pan flute clarinet and a beautiful ...... I stop right lbr /> in brief what is right is that there is a lot of its very usable and some of its gadjet.
Rhythmic arrangements are largely pretty (me playing salsa, I t tonn by Latin styles)

If it again, I resigned.
