      USB connectivity brings music directly to your keyboard

      The DGX-530 has 2 USB ports on the back, USB TO HOST and USB TO DEVICE.


      This is plug and play simple for recording and playing back MIDI files, as well as transferring data to and from your computer.


      This is for connecting optional peripheral USB storage devices like floppy disk drives and thumb drives. When a USB flash memory is inserted in this instrument's USB TO DEVICE terminal, user songs created on the instrument and the registered settings can be saved to or loaded from the memory medium. USB flash memory can also be used to transfer song data downloaded from the Internet to the instrument, where it can be used with the performance assistant technology and the Yamaha Education Suite features mentioned below. Furthermore, user songs saved to USB flash memory in MIDI file format can also be used with these features.

      Lyric, chord and notation display

      Have you ever played a song and wondered what it would look like as sheet music? The DGX-530 can display the score to a song whether it comes from the Internet, the internal selections or ones that you record yourself, and the pages scroll automatically when a song is played back; no more page turning! And for singers, the screen also displays chords and lyrics to XF compatible songs. And for those that want to learn to play, notation adds a new dimension to the Yamaha Education Suite, allowing you to hear a song while you follow the notes in the display.

      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.

      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 DGX-530 and performance assistant technology, you can! The DGX-530 offers four selectable types that work with any of the internal songs with chords plus any XF MIDI files.


      No matter where or what you play, the result will be musical, well-balanced sound. This type offers the greatest freedom, allowing you to play anything with both your left and right hands.


      If you can play simple right-hand melodies but have trouble with left hand chords, this is the type for you. The Chord type applies to only the left-hand section of the keyboard, allowing you to easily play chords to support the melody you are playing with your right hand.


      This type lets you play the melody of the selected song by playing any keys with just one finger. Start playing melodies right away, even if you've never played a keyboard instrument before!


      Play the melody of the selected song with one finger on the right-hand section of the keyboard, and play chords on the left-hand section of the keyboard using the Chord type.

      Yamaha Education Suite: Helps you learn to play

      The DGX-530 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.

      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 child's first performance or writing and recording your own songs. With the DGX-530, 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.

      Sound Quality

      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 DGX-530 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 DGX-530 is also capable of this mode, for those who prefer it.

      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.

      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.

      Realistic Sounding Voices

      The DGX-530 comes equipped with 127 panel voices, 12 drum/SFX kits plus 361 XGlite voices. Special voices include Sweet! Clarinet, Trumpet, Muted Trumpet, Flute, Pan Flute, Soprano & Tenor Saxes, Trombone, Cool! Voices including Galaxy Electric Piano, Suitcase Electric Piano, Electric Piano, Organ and Rotor Organ and Live! Voices including Grand Piano, Warm Grand Piano and Orchestra.


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


      Voices feature long samples of electronically amplified instruments


      Voices use stereo samples to ensure the most accurate reproduction of each instrument's natural presence, resonance and vibrato

      Dual Mode

      This mode allows you to combine two voices across the keyboard at the same time, for example piano and strings.

      Split Mode

      This 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 DGX-530 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 DGX-530 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.


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

      Auto Accompaniment Styles

      In addition to the 100 songs mentioned above, the DGX-530 also has auto accompaniment styles that "follow" your playing. Simply select a style of music from the 160 built-in Styles (example Rock), play a chord and the DGX-530 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, simply go to Yamaha's website, preview from the selection, purchase and load it into the keyboard.

      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 high resolution 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 DGX-530 Portable Grand piano. And of course, the keyboard includes a Sustain Pedal jack in the back and Sustain Pedal for practicing and playing piano pieces.


      The DGX-530 features USB TO HOST, USB TO DEVICE, Sustain Pedal jack and a Headphone jack for private practice.

      Don't forget your Survival Kit!

      Designed to provide you with everything you need to get started. This optional kit includes a two-year extended warranty, full length Watch & Learn DVD, Grand Piano cloth key cover, stereo headphones, bonus coupons and a DVD-ROM.
