The scale tune memory function allows you to store four of your own scales and recall them instantly whenever you wish.
The pitch bend wheel allows you to control pitch in real-time to add realistic expression to your playing.

**For iOS device connection, refer to the "iPhone/iPad Connection Manual"
Audio AUX IN & Melody Suppressor Function
By connecting an external audio player to the AUX IN jack, you can play along with your favourite songs. The advanced vocal/melody suppressor lowers the volume of vocals and melody lines in the original recordings, leaving that part open for you to play.(***)
***Depending on the song, the volume of the melody part may not be affected.
Use Master EQ to adjust the sound
The PSR-A350 is equipped with a preset Master EQ that allows you to adjust the nuances of the keyboard sound with settings such as Bright and Boost, making it easier to get exactly the sound you like.
9 Registration Memories
Registration Memory allows the user to save panel settings as a 'snapshot' to a Registration Memory location and then instantly recall the settings by pressing a single button.
Useful functions for learning and practice
The 5 song/2 track recorder helps to achieve efficient practice sessions while Duo mode allows two people to play together on identical keyboard sections. This can be very useful when performing live or during lessons.
The PSR-A350 features Yamaha Education Suite lesson functions which offer a total of nine stages - three for the left hand, three for the right, and three for both hands. This helps keyboard students to practice the songs stored in the instrument. There's a scoring function that makes it fun to practice, and a waiting function that adjusts the tempo to the person playing, pausing the accompaniment until the correct note is played.

Questions & Answers
Question: Does this or any other similar Yamaha keyboard have a 6-track recording facility? Thanks, Chris
Hi Chris, thanks for getting in touch. This keyboard has a 2-track recorder; our PSR-E453 has a 5-track recorder (plus a 6th track for backing accompaniment selection) - see the link below.
Our professional PSR-S Series keyboards, starting with the PSR-S670, all have 16-track recorders (along with improved realism and other advanced features).
Alternatively, the vast majority of our keyboards can be connected to a Mac, Windows PC or iPad; using Steinberg's Cubasis app on an iPad (for instance) immediately gives you many more recording tracks (connection to an iPad may require additional cables or adapters).
Question: Does the PSRA350 work with a DAW such as Reaper as a midi controller and for recording?
For use with a DAW (such as Reaper, Cubase or Logic), we've included a USB connection. Once connected, this transmits and receives normal MIDI signals for recording, triggering virtual instruments and score-writing. To record the actual sound of the PSR-A350 (rather than just the notes), you'll need to connect the PSR-A350's HEADPHONE/OUTPUT stereo jack socket to your computer's audio interface.
For a home keyboard whose USB connection carries both MIDI and Audio (over a single cable), try our PSR-E453 or, for a whole world of sonic and production possibilities, our Synthesizer range; the MX Series, MOXF Series and MONTAGE Series all feature superb integration with DAWs and other software, as well as offering class-leading sound quality.
Question: Does this keyboard come with a power supply?
The PSR-A350 doesn't come with a mains power adapter - a Yamaha PA130 PSU is recommended, although 6 'AA' size batteries can be used for portability.
