  • 6-track recorder

For Those Who Want More

If you're looking for a reasonably priced piano replacement, look no further than the DGX230. It is the music student or professional musicians' answer to "I need more keys!" and many music teachers encourage new students to get a keyboard that will grow with their needs. It features 76 non-weighted keys that not only look like piano keys but have a Graded Soft Touch (GST) action with different levels of resistance, making it easier for a budding musician to move to an acoustic or digital piano.

Sound Quality: more than twice the power of next model down (12 watts vs. 5 watts)

Yamaha DGX-230

2-Way Speaker System: Separate woofers and tweeters deliver sounds with clarity and precision for more lifelike instrument voices.

Bass Boost System: A special port on each speaker adds a powerful impact to bass sound reproduction.

Stereo (Not just 2 Speakers): We all know that stereo sound adds realistic character and spatial depth. But how can you tell if the portable keyboard you're looking to purchase is stereo or not? With Yamaha, the answer is simple. All Yamaha Portable Keyboards are true stereo.

Digital Signal Processing (DSP): Enhances sound quality with sophisticated digital effects like Harmony, Reverb & Chorus.

Advanced Wave Memory (AWM): Yamaha Advanced Wave Memory technology delivers amazingly realistic sound.

Full Keyboard Mode

The DGX230 delivers on its piano theme with a special mode of fingering called Full Keyboard Mode. This allows the player to play the keyboard like a piano; for example a chord with the right hand and bass notes with the left. When using the accompaniment feature, the virtual band will follow these chords. Traditional portable keyboards normally require you to chord on the left side of the keyboard, in the bass section, which is foreign to most piano players. The DGX230 is also capable of this mode, for those who prefer it.

Yamaha Education Suite: Helps you learn to play

The DGX230 has 30 built-in songs plus 70 more on included CD-ROM for you to learn to play using the Yamaha Education Suite. The songs are separated into left and right hand parts, providing 7 levels of lessons plus a convenient chord dictionary.

Yamaha DGX-230
  • Three keyboard lessons for each hand
    • Waiting Mode – stops the playback of a song until you find the correct note and then continues
    • Your Tempo Mode – Learn to play the correct notes with the correct timing. Song playback tempo will vary to match the speed you are playing at. The song will slow down when you play wrong notes, so you can learn at your own pace.
    • Minus One Mode – Here's where you can perfect your technique. The song will play at the normal tempo, minus the part you have chosen to play. Play along while listening to the song.
  • Lesson Grading – monitors your progress as you practice each lesson and gives you a grade.

  • Repeat and Learn – the song location will move back four measures from the point at which you pressed the button, and playback will begin after a one-measure count-in. This section will repeat allowing you to practice until perfect!

  • Chord Dictionary – shows you how to play chords and tells you which chords you are playing by displaying the notes and chord names on the LCD screen.

6-track sequencer: record your own music

Imagine capturing your student's first performance or writing and recording your own songs. With the DGX230, you have the equivalent of a built-in multi-track recorder to record one or multiple instrument parts at a time and assign each part to a different track. Six tracks are provided to accommodate sophisticated melodies, chord accompaniment and rhythm parts.

Computer Connectivity: USB and Flash ROM

Yamaha DGX-230

The DGX230 comes with 30 built-in songs plus 70 more on an included CD-ROM and an interactive lesson system, divided into left and right hand parts, for learning them. In addition, you have the ability to connect to a computer via USB, download more songs from the Internet into the internal Flash ROM (PC only), and use all of the Yamaha Education Suite features to help you learn to play them. Yamaha makes it easy to get connected with the new PC button. Now, instead of wading through function menus and fighting through a maze of selections, one button is your expressway to music on the web and your computer. In addition, once connected, you can play your songs into the computer (PC and Mac), edit them if necessary, and e-mail them to your friends and family. And with General MIDI (GM) and XGlite compatibility, song data always plays back with the correct sounds.

Ease of operation

There are many tools in the keyboard that make it easy to be a power user from the first day you own the keyboard.

Yamaha DGX-230
  • Expandable Music Database: Complete keyboard setups by song title. The keyboard selects an appropriate voice for the right hand melody, the correct musical style and the correct tempo. Simply call up a song title and start playing.

  • One Touch Setting (OTS): Provides you with a recommended voice with effects for each Style. For example, on a jazz style OTS might be piano, for a Latin style it might be acoustic guitar and for a rock style it might be a guitar with overdrive etc.

  • Registration Memory: Set the keyboard up just the way you like and take a digital snapshot by memorizing it to one of the Registration buttons. Load and save up to 16 Registrations to User memory. The Registration buttons are conveniently located just above the keyboard.

  • Performance Assistant Technology: Performance assistant technology is a feature from Yamaha that guarantees that you can't play a wrong melody note or chord. Here's how it works. Select a song, press the Performance Assistant button Chord Mode and play the keyboard – any notes you like. Every note you play will fit the music! If you move up the keyboard, the pitch goes up. If you move down, the pitch goes down. Play a perfect arpeggio, or play chords in time with the music, or really "go for it" and play a solo. As long as performance assistant is "on ", you're " on". Imagine being able to give a concert to your friends or relatives the very first day that you bring this remarkable keyboard home. Well, with the DGX230 and performance assistant technology, you can! This keyboard is the first in the line to offer Chord/Free Mode in addition to Chord Mode described above. Chord/Free Mode allows those that have learned a melody with their right hand to have the keyboard correct the notes of their left hand. This allows you to concentrate on one hand at a time while learning. Play the correct notes with the right and any notes with the left and you're making beautiful music. In addition to working with any of the internal songs with chords, this feature also works with XF MIDI files. For examples, please visit www.yamahamusicsoft.com.

Master EQ: Tailor your sound

Five different master equalizer (EQ) settings are provided to give you the best possible sound when listening through different reproduction systems—the instrument's internal speakers, headphones, or an external speaker system. You're in control.

Yamaha DGX-230

Easy Song Arranger: You're the conductor

You can change the "feel", or arrangement, of songs by simply pressing the Easy Song Arranger button, allowing you to re-mix any MIDI file. For example, you can try your favorite song with a Rock feel, Hip Hop, then Jazz. It's fast, powerful and one-button simple.

Realistic Sounding Voices

The DGX230 comes equipped with 116 panel voices, 12 drum/SFX kits plus 361 XGlite voices. Included in this selection is stereo-sampled Piano, a selection of special voices including Sweet! Trumpet, Flute, Pan Flute, Soprano & Tenor Saxes and Cool! Voices including Galaxy Electric Piano, Organ and Rotor Organ.

Yamaha DGX-230

Sweet! Voices reproduce all the natural expression and vibrato of their respective acoustic instruments

Cool! Voices feature long samples of electronically amplified instruments

Dual Mode allows you to combine two voices across the keyboard at the same time — for example piano and strings.

Split Mode allows you to select a different voice for each hand — for example piano for your right and bass for your left. The combinations are limited only by your imagination.

32 Note Polyphony and 16 Part Multi Timbrel

In electronic keyboards, the more sounds made at the same time — polyphony — the more memory is needed. Obviously, more is always better, because too little polyphony can cause dropouts in dense passages of music. The DGX230 has 32 notes of polyphony and will play back 16 different parts or sounds at once (16-part multi timbrel); enough for the most demanding needs.

Digital Effects

Yamaha has long been a world leader in digital signal processing technology. In fact, Yamaha professional audio products are found in most professional recording studios around the world. The DGX230 takes full advantage of this know-how, giving you an extensive range of nine, top-quality reverb effects that simulate playing in everything from a small room to a large spacious concert hall and four chorus effects that add richness to electric pianos and guitars in particular. You'll also find 26 types of Harmony effects for your melody part.

Metronome

Just what the teacher ordered! A fully adjustable metronome is just a button push away.

Connectivity

The DGX230 features USB MIDI, Sustain Pedal jack and a Headphone jack for private practice.

Yamaha DGX-230

Auto Accompaniment Styles

In addition to the 100 songs mentioned above, the DGX230 also has auto accompaniment styles that "follow" your playing. Simply select a style of music from the 160 built-in styles (example Rock) and start playing. The DGX230 will create a backup band (bass, drums, strings, guitar etc.) and "follow" you through the song. You can play your songs and try different genres of music. And if you can't find the right style for your song, you can go to www.yamahamusicsoft.com, preview from the selection, purchase and transfer it to your keyboard (PC only).

Portable Grand: Industry's best piano

You're never more than a button push away from the most realistic piano sound in portable keyboards today. One press of the Portable Grand button resets the entire keyboard to a stereo-sampled piano — perfect for when it's time to practice. Yamaha is known around the world for the quality of our acoustic pianos and this attention to detail is evident as you enjoy the warmth and clarity of the DGX230 Portable Grand piano. And of course, the keyboard includes a Sustain Pedal jack on the back for practicing and playing piano pieces.

I now own two these. One I leave at my band's practice site, the other I keep at home and then take with me for performances. At $200 there's no sense hauling the practice instrument back and forth. Of course, it's not a professional keyboard and will rate sneers from real keyboardists. But for my purposes providing chording and some embellishments for a couple of local bands, it works just fine . . . especially great sound for the "rock organ" setting . . . and I also use the violin voice for country songs and the various saxophone voices on occasion. I have no idea about the other features of the keyboard as a learning device . . . but for an inexpensive, good-sounding, sturdy and dependable keyboard, it's great.

I have no problem with the keyboard itself. I have a big problem with the product marketing and out of box experience.

What is the difference between this model and the YPG-235? I spent 60 minutes on the internet including Yamaha's terrible website and still have no idea. It feels like the YPG DBX line are about the same, and the have THE EXACT SAME MANUAL. Is one or the other the newer model? Are they both still supported? This one costs a little more, what am I getting for the money?

This model comes without an AC adapter. WTF? Is there really someone out there that wants to run this solely off battery power? I unboxed this with my son and we had to just stand there and look at it for 2 days while I waited for an adapter in the mail (not to mention paying an extra $20 for a $1 item). Here's a hint Yamaha, Apple would never ship a product that didn't work out of the box. WWSJD? Include an AC adapter.

Lastly - I also bought the stand separately. Apart from having no assembly directions it doesn't at all hook in to this keyboard. The keyboard just sits on two tube pipes. Would it be too hard to design an integrated stand? This just feels cheap.

Save yourself $40 or more and buy the whole package from Costco for $180. It's silly that Amazon makes you pay separately for the power supply, headphones, stand, etc.

I wish I could say that I purchased my DGX 230 from Amazon.com; however, I can not. But I can say for the money this is a fantastic instrument. Unfortunately, the keyboard by itself does not include the power adapter--as noted by other reviews. Still, no big deal. Solution: buy the package and you will not go wrong. I received the DGX 230, a Yamaha PKBX2 keyboard stand, the power adapter, and Nady HP-03 stereo headphones. The stand is very easy to assemble with the supplied allen wrench, is very sturdy, and has multiple height adjustments that can be made without hassel and within seconds. All good points lead to the fact that this is an extremely nice piece of equipment to compliment your existing instrument(s) or for the beginner and advanced player alike. You will not regret the price. I paid more for mine than what you can get it for at Amazon.com yet, it does not matter because it is well worth the price. And, the owner's manual is easy to read and understand. Have fun and enjoy.

This is a great keyboard for the price. I like the design but the functions are good also.
The only thing inconvenient, is that there is no AC power adapter included.

We setup my daughter's new Yamaha keyboard, and the inlaws joined in making music. Playing with various sounds, I heard my nephew playing guitar while she played honky tonk piano. Next she was using classical grand piano mode, and they were rockin' out.
Lots of fun, worked right out of the box, the speakers are big and sound good. We're having fun with this cool keyboard.
Lots of complex options, plus the USB connection to a computer we need to learn. But it's great right out of the box. Get the stand and footpedal, and of course a power supply. Yea, it's more money, but to get Yamaha quality that's the price you pay.
Still a good value at these prices...

Bought this for my 8 year old. She loved it out of the box while it sat on the floor waiting for a stand. This is a nice starting instrument for someone who has slight, light, and delicate fingers. Features are beyond my ken, too many really. For the price, it must be built in China. Good deal.
