This gives the YPG-235 with its MIDI feature a decided edge. Established in the 1980’s, the MIDI is a kind of communication protocol that especially designed for electronic instruments like keyboards and computers. As such, a MIDI message contains no sound at all but it serves as a blueprint that instructs a hardware or software what notes to play and with what velocity the notes should be played. So when a MIDI passage is sent, the keyboard can play the same passage using any of the sounds available in your keyboard. Given a choice between a DGX-230 vs. YPG-235 Yamaha keyboards, I will definitely opt for the YPG-235 model.
