Yamaha PSR-A5000 61-Key World Music Arranger Workstation Keyboard

Designed especially for World musicians, the PSR-A5000 becomes an ultimate partner for your greatest live performances and original content production. Explore the new features and get inspired with the new sound.


Your performances and compositions of music in genres from around the world will be more powerful and more expressive than ever before with newly sampled instruments and 210 fresh Styles. Oud, Qanoon, Nay, and many other Voices sound incredibly realistic thanks to the new velocity-sensitive portamento, Super Articulation! Voices, and dedicated world instrument waveforms that are 10 times the resolution found in the previous generation of PSR-A.


Create your own original Voices and Styles with the PSR-A5000. Expansion memory has been increased to 1 GB (approx.). It gives you lots of room to design and store various and higher-quality contents. The PSR-A5000 supports Styles with multiple time signatures, which increases your possibilities in Style programming.

Drums and Percussions

Expanded drum kit functionality allows you to play 128 mapped instruments from a single kit. Great care has been taken with drum mapping to provide an optimized, intuitive layout for World music finger drumming on a keyboard. Thanks to newly added key-off samples, drums, and percussion Voices sound very natural and make performance and programming easier. Revo! SFX kits provide more natural drum rolls and enhanced expressiveness.

User Interface

Scale Tune buttons offer easy access during live performances. Individual note pitches can be easily modified and stored as your own new scales to Scale Tune Memories. Assign your favorite function/parameter to Live Control knobs, Joystick, Assignable buttons, Foot Pedals, and Home shortcuts. FSB Keyboard offers remarkable playability thanks to its heavier initial key resistance, greater key travel, and refined keyboard structure. The 7-inch touch display and new graphic user interface provide for instinctive control over the instrument's powerful features.

New Portamento

Newly added Crossfade Portamento with velocity and time-related parameters. The transition speed and velocity of the following notes are editable, allowing smooth, expressive transitions between successive notes. Check out the Audio and Video tab to experience the natural behavior of the instruments achieved with the new portamento.

Sub Output

The PSR-A5000 features two sub-line-out connections that you can use to adapt your sound to various situations. Try routing bass through a separate subwoofer for a fuller, more powerful bottom end, or send parts and drum instruments to an external console to shape your sound further.

Chord Looper

Chord Looper lets you record a chord sequence and play it back, freeing your left hand from playing chords and providing new ways to enhance your performance. You can let the chords repeat automatically and focus on other aspects of the music.
