Questions & Answers

Ask a Question:

Answer

Yes, the EZ-220 has a volume control. It also has a connection for headphones - so, if wanted, you can play the keyboard without anyone nearby being able to hear it.

Answer

Thank you for the question. If using the auto-accompaniment styles (eg setting the chord with your left hand which the backing then matches), you can adjust the style volume as wanted.

If playing with auto-accompaniment mode off, the EZ-220 will use a single volume setting across the whole keyboard. However, the EZ-220 is touch-sensitive and so you need only play harder with the right hand to make it louder than chords being played by your left hand.

Answer

Thank you for the question. The EZ-220 offers two ways to sustain the notes you play. The most intuitive (and piano-like) is to use a sustain pedal such as our FC5A or FC4A pedals (sold separately). When you press the pedal, the notes will sustain; the sustained notes will either fade out gradually if you continue to press the pedal, or end normally when you lift off of the pedal.

Alternatively, if you're not using the EZ-220 with a pedal, you can put the EZ-220 into Sustain Mode using the Function menu (in this mode, all notes will sustain, as if a pedal were connected and continuously pressed down).

Answer

Thank you for the question. The EZ-220 doesn't have a built-in recorder; however, by connecting its USB-To-Host port to a Mac, iPad, iPhone or Windows PC (additional cables and adapters may be required), you can use the EZ-220 with a variety of recording apps including Cubase/Cubasis and Logic Pro/Garageband.

For keyboards which include an on-board recording facility, look at our PSR-E363, PSR-E453 or PSR-S Series models:

Answer

Thank you for the question. Whilst the EZ-220 comes complete with a range of different sounds and backing accompaniments, you can choose just to play the piano sound without any accompaniment. Please be aware that, whilst the EZ-220 offers touch response (allowing you to play with expression as you would on an acoustic piano), the keys aren't weighted as an acoustic piano's would be and so will feel quite different. Additionally, the EZ-220 has 61 keys rather than the 88 keys found on most acoustic upright and grand pianos.

For a keyboard model which offers fewer features, look at our NP-12 or NP-32 models. Or, for full length, fully-weighted (but still portable) digital pianos, look at our P-45 and P-115 models.

Answer

Thank you for the question. The EZ-220 does feature a USB-to-Host post to connect to a Mac, iPad/iPhone or Windows PC. If connecting to an iOS device, you'll also need Apple's Camera Connection Kit adapter. Once connected and set up, the EZ-220 can transmit and receive MIDI data (notation, etc) for sequencing and composing.

However, it doesn't transmit audio (the actual sound of the keyboard); for this, you would need to use the EZ-220's PHONES/OUTPUT socket connected to a suitable audio interface.

Instead, you might want to look at our PSR-E363, PSR-E453, PSR-EW300 or PSR-EW400 (or our MX, MOXF and Montage Series synthesizers). All of these models transmit both MIDI and audio via USB, massively simplifying a recording setup. Additionally, models from the PSR-E453 upwards have even better sound quality.

Answer

Thank you for the question. In short, yes; the EZ-220 keyboard can be powered by batteries (not included) rather than the mains power adapter (included). A range of soft padded carry cases (or 'gigbags') are available which help protect the keyboard during transport.

The EZ-220's dimensions are as follows:

  • Width 945mm(37-3/16'')
  • Height 111mm(4-3/8'')
  • Depth 348mm (13-11/16")
  • Weight 4.4kg(9lbs.,11oz) (not including batteries)

The EZ-220 does feature a full-size headphone (1/4" TRS stereo jack) socket; connecting headphones will mute the on-board speakers so you can play inaudibly to those around you.

Answer

Thank you for the question. The EZ-220 features a full size (1/4") headphone jack socket. If your headphones or earphones have the smaller minijack plug (as iPod earphones usually do), you can buy an adapter so that they fit the keyboard:

Answer

Thank you for the question. The EZ-220 doesn't have a backlit display - we advise using the keyboard in a well-lit room.

For reference, our PSR-E Series keyboards from the PSR-E363 upwards do have a backlit display.

Answer

Thank you for the question. The EZ-220 voices are chosen either by typing in the appropriate voice number manually or by going to voice 000 - the One-Touch-Setting voice - which will automatically choose an appropriate voice based on the backing style you have selected. Aside from using the Portable Grand button as a shortcut back to the piano voice, there isn't a faster way to change voice using the keyboard alone.*

For keyboardists who are performing, we recommend looking at our higher-end models, starting from the PSR-E453. As well as offering incredible sound quality and more realistic backing styles, the PSR-E453 features Registration Memory banks, in which you can save your performance settings and recall them with a press of a button. The PSR-E453 has 4 buttons; using the menu, you can save up to 9 banks of 4 registrations - ideal for performing or just to save favourite settings:

Answer

Hi Tony, thanks for getting in touch. The keys light up according to what's on MIDI channel 1 - for the majority of MIDI files, channel 1 corresponds to the melody line.

Answer

Thanks for getting in touch; we hope your daughter's enjoying the EZ-220 keyboard. There are a couple of different stands we'd suggest. Our own L-2C stand has a fixed height and is very sturdy (it screws into the base of the keyboard) whereas Quiklok's T10 stand is height adjustable (but doesn't fix onto the keyboard; instead, the rubber grips stop the keyboard from moving):

Answer

The USB-to-Host port only carries MIDI data; to record audio, you'd need to use the Headphone output connected to your computer's audio interface.

For a home keyboard that carries both MIDI and audio over USB (and has incredible sound quality), try our PSR-E453 - it sounds amazing and works brilliantly with macOS, iOS and Windows.

Answer

The App is called 'EZ-220 Page Turner' and is available free of charge from the App Store on iPad (requires iOS 7 or later).

Answer

Yes, we've included a 'FOOT SWITCH' socket on the EZ-220's back panel. This connects to a Yamaha FC4A, FC5A or other compatible sustain pedal.

Answer

We've included a connection for a sustain pedal. This is designed to work with our compact FC5A pedal and piano-like FC4A pedal - see the links below. 3rd party sustain pedals need to be either Yamaha-compatible, or offer a physical polarity switch in order to work with the EZ-220.
