Featuring 16 patterns with five different sections, the PSR-I455 faithfully recreates the sound of the electronic Tabla and Tanpura, rivaling stand-alone machines in the process. Tempo, transpose and balance for Tanpura / Tabla can be freely controlled in real-time using the keyboard’s controller knobs.
The full lineup of 753 voices on the PSR-I455 features a total of 19 different Indian musical instruments, and of the 206 built-in styles, 23 provide automatic accompaniment perfect for Indian music. What’s more, the Arpeggio function also includes 12 uniquely Indian patterns.
Add to this a diverse array of voices and styles from Mexican, Arabic, Brazilian, Chinese, and other genres, and it is easy to see why this portable keyboard is ideal for many different types of ethnic music from all over the world.

The PSR-I455 recorder supports a total of six tracks—five for melodies; one for styles and patterns. Combined, these tracks can be used to record approximately 19,000 notes (almost twice that of the previous PSR-I425 models). In addition, roughly ten songs of this size can be recorded and stored in the instrument.
The PSR-I455 comes with a selection of powerful effects that other keyboards in its class simply cannot match. For dynamic control of the instrument’s overall sound, choose from nine types of reverb, chorus, harmony, and five different types of master EQ that can be used to sculpt the final output. What’s more, the instrument also comes with Ultra Wide Stereo—an acclaimed Yamaha audio effect that can be used to create a wider, more vibrant stereo mixes.
