Graded Soft Touch Keyboard
Just as on an actual piano, the lower keys are heavy in touch and the higher keys are light, whilst retaining the soft touch of a digital keyboard for beginners.
Amazingly Realistic Sounds
Yamaha’s highly acclaimed Sweet! and Cool! Voices deliver incredibly natural and dynamic sound. Use the Pitch Bend wheel, and hear these Voices–especially the Sax and Trumpet–truly come alive!
Cool! and Sweet! Voices
Cool! Voices reproduce the subtlest shades of the original sound of electric instruments. Sweet! Voices provide delicate nuances, such as the vibrato of wind and brass instruments.
Easy Song Arranger
In addition to each song’s default style, you can select any other style to play the song with the Easy Song Arranger feature. This means that you can play a song that is normally a ballad, for example, as a bossa nova, as a hip-hop tune, etc. You can create totally different arrangements by changing the style with which a song is played. 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 wrong notes! All you have to do is play on the keyboard–alternately on the left- and right-hand ranges of the keyboard, for example–and you’ll sound like a pro as long as you play in time with the music.
Music Database plus External Files
You want to play music in your favourite style, 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 appropriate style from the Music Database. The panel settings will automatically be adjusted for the ideal combination of sounds and style! Furthermore, this instrument allows Music Database files transferred from a computer or stored on a USB flash memory device. These files can be used in the same way as the internal Music Database.
USB TO HOST Terminal
Dive in and take advantage of the wide world of computer music software. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer recorded parts with different instrument sounds – all from a single instrument.
Portable Grand Button
Playing piano is fast and easy with Yamaha’s Portable Grand function. One dedicated button brings up a great sounding piano, stunningly rich and authentic in its sound and exceptionally responsive to your playing touch, as well as setting up the keyboard to play as a piano.
Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.)
Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) is an advanced set of helpful learning tools built into the instrument, letting you teach yourself how to play and perform. Y.E.S. helps you master a song with easy lesson steps. Each lesson can be done in isolation with either your left hand or right hand, or both.
