Gearank Recommendation

The PSR-EW410 was on our recommended list for Portable Keyboards Under $500 from April 2020 until July 2022 when it was removed due to a lack of availability.

Overview

The Yamaha PSR-EW410 is a portable keyboard that threads the line between being a piano keyboard instrument and an electronic music sampler.

While at its core, it is a keyboard with 76 keys, it crosses over into the EDM/DJ realms with its groove creator and sampling features. And this combination lets you do things that are above and beyond what's usually expected from a conventional electronic keyboard.

In addition to sampling features and realtime track triggering controls, the PSR-EW410 has assignable knobs for realtime manipulation of parameters and effects, much like a MIDI controller would.

Being a sampler, this keyboard does not have that many voices by default (237 Voices and 24 Drum/SFX kits) but this is expandable via Yamaha's XGlite voices.

Other standout features include having a pitchbend wheel, arpeggios, USB MIDI connectivity and support for USB flash drives.
