Captain Rick plays a Yamaha PSR-EW400 Keyboard
The PSR-EW400 is Yamaha’s flagship portable keyboard with 76 touch response keys and 48-note polyphony.
It creates 758 high quality voices featuring the new Live! Grand Piano Voice that makes piano performances sound inspired and expressive. It also features 8 Sweet! voices (Tenor & Soprano Sax, Trumpet, Trombone, 3 Flutes) and 3 Cool! voices (Piano & 2 Organs) which use Yamaha's advanced sampling technologies to capture the realism and specific characteristics of each sound.
Two assignable, real-time control knobs filter and adjust sound like an analog synthesizer. 10 DSP effects (Reverb, Harmony, Chorus, etc.) 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.
The Pattern function puts a wealth of powerful loops and beats, like Crossfade and Retrigger, to create dynamically varied music on the fly like a DJ.
150 Arpeggio patterns adjust and morph around the notes and chords played allowing for almost limitless creativity.
A rich set of ethnic sounds and scale tunings allow you to enjoy many styles of music around the world, including Latin, Indian, Arabic, African, Chinese, and more.
