Features
 

Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard with matte finish of black keys

Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, the keys of the lower notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The keyboard's sensitivity can even be adjusted to match your playing style. This Graded Hammer Standard technology also enables the piano to provide authentic touch in a lightweight instrument. The matte finish of the black keys enhances the keyboard's luxurious appearance.

Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling

The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates sound close to that of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expressive quality and potential becomes.

Amazingly Realistic and Dynamic Sounds

Yamaha's highly acclaimed Sweet! and Cool! Voices deliver incredibly natural and very dynamic sound.

Digital Signal Processor (DSP)

238 types of DSP effects can be added to the Main and Dual Voices. These range from reverb-like ambience effects to distortion and other dynamic processing tools that let you enhance the sound, or completely transform it.

Easy Song Arranger

In addition to each song's default style, you can select any other style with the Easy Song Arranger feature. This means that you can play a song that is normally a ballad as a swing jazz, as a hip-hop tune, etc. You can create totally different arrangements by changing the style of a song. You can also change the song's melody Voice and the keyboard Voice for a complete change of image.

Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.)

Play along with a song on the instrument's keyboard and produce a perfect performance every time... even if you play the wrong notes! Just keep in time with the music, and you'll sound like a pro.

Music Database plus External Files

You want to play music in your favorite genre, but you're not sure how to select the best Voice and Style for the type of music you want to play... simply select the desired title from the Music Database and the panel settings will automatically be adjusted for the ideal combination of Style and Voices! Furthermore, this instrument can access Music Database files transferred from a computer or stored on a USB flash memory device. These files can be used right along side the internal Music Database titles.

USB TO DEVICE

The USB TO DEVICE on the instrument allows you to connect USB memory devices such as flash drives or hard drives, enabling you to save or load registrations and user songs created on the instrument, as well as read data from the connected device such as MIDI files or Style files.

USB TO HOST (PC or MAC)
