Put the expressive power of your whole body into your live performance—anywhere, any time
The Electone ELA-1 is a portable keyboard that gives you the expressive power to enjoy making a musical impact wherever you’re performing live, through nuanced keyboard playing, dynamic pedal bass, your smile, and even your singing.
Powerful performance that lets you show off your playing using your whole body
Three keyboards for expanded playability
The ELA-1 is equipped with three independent keyboards for melody, harmony, and bass respectively. These keyboards give you more freedom for a versatile performance.
Live Expression Control for freely expressing the nuances you want to convey
Over 75 effects and functions can be assigned to the two expression pedals and two footswitches for real-time control, letting you express the emotions you want to convey, every time.
Connect a microphone to sing and talk
The ELA-1 features a microphone input jack. Simply connect a microphone to hear your vocals along with the sounds of what you’re playing on the keyboard through the built-in speakers at the same time. This opens up possibilities for singing along as you play, or for onstage banter.
An extensive array of carefully-crafted sounds to take your expressive capabilities to the next level
The ELA-1 is well-stocked with a full range of over 900 different Voice. Enjoy creating a wide range of sounds including Super Articulation Voices that express the breathing and nuances unique to each instrument, Combination Voices that add depth to performances, Organ flutes, and much more.
The ELA-1 features 450 different Styles (automatic accompaniment) that are suitable for all kinds of genres to stimulate your creativity. The ELA-1 also features “Adaptive Styles,” in which the built-in smart engine controls the accompaniment by automatically analyzing your performance.
Control the accompaniment band just as you like, to add spice to your playing with dynamic flair and liven up your performance right when you want.
For Chinese-speaking performers
The ELA-1 features a Chinese language display, a first for Yamaha Electones. Most Voices, Styles, and functions are displayed in Chinese, which makes it easier than ever before to use this instrument.
As you’d expect, the operating panel of the ELA-1 is also in Chinese. This makes the instrument intuitive and easy to operate even for first-time Electone players.
With arrangements that incorporate the essence of Chinese music, the ELA-1 comes with 46 Chinese instrument Voices and 35 Chinese Styles that can be used in a variety of situations from traditional to popular, making the music scene even more exciting.
Even more fun and easier to use
The ELA-1 features a portable design, as the main unit, base unit, stand and chair are easy to disassemble and carry. Take this instrument wherever you want to play.
In addition to two-way speakers, a bass reflex port is installed on the front of the instrument for a compact design that doesn’t skimp on sound quality, allowing you to beef up your groove with a powerful low end.
The ELA-1 features an easy-to-read 4.3-inch TFT color display. This lets you focus on your music without stress, whether performing on stage or creating sounds at home.
ELA-1 is compatible with the “Rec'n'Share” smartphone app, which lets you bring your performance to an even larger audience. By connecting to a smart device, your performance, voice, and facial expressions can be captured in video with noiseless, high-quality sound and shared via social media.
Voice & Style Expansion Packs enable you to customize the ELA-1 with a wide range of additional content from all over the world. When loaded into the keyboard, you can instantly access authentic new sounds, rhythms and backing in the musical style of your choice.
Use Yamaha Expansion Manager to create individual expansion data sets containing content from various packs.
With Yamaha Expansion Manager, you can manage Voice, Style, Registration, and other contents, select your favorites and create a Personal Pack, efficiently using the instrument’s on-board memory.
