Pure CF Sampling for superb tonality


Yamaha technicians selected a CFIIIS full concert grand with the highest sound quality, and tuned it to the finest possible condition. They then used our unique Pure CF Sampling technique to sample all of its sounds, in order to create the CLP/CVP sound. As a result, you enjoy the same natural tonal response as a top-quality piano.

TFT LCD 5.7 inch Display


High-resolution, 320 x 240 dots, color TFT (Thin Film Transistor) LCD screen. Big and bright, the 5.7 inch display shows scores, lyrics, all important settings and parameters with crystal clear clarity, even under extreme lighting conditions.

Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) Keyboard with Synthetic Ivory Keytops


Just as on an actual grand piano, the lower keys are heavy in touch and the higher keys are light, with all the natural gradations in between. This technology also provides performance functions and expressive power found only on grand pianos, such as having repeated plays of the same note perfectly articulated, even when playing at high speed or with partial key release.

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.

Super Articulation


Introducing a completely fine level of sonic realism and musical expressiveness. The remarkably authentic Voices feature the unique performance characteristics of each instrument, the expressive finger-slides on the guitar, or the breathy, legato phrasing of a saxophone. Never before have such string, wind and brass instruments, played live with a keyboard, sounded so convincing or so real!

MegaVoice Technology


It features multiple samples across the keyboard with sophisticated velocity switching - for incredibly authentic instrument sounds. It contains not only the basic samples of the instrument but also the performance techniques used with it. On a guitar for instance, players will hear open and mute string sounds, dead notes, hammering effects, slide effects, harmonics and a wide range of strum and body noises. In technical terms, MegaVoice duplicates an instrument's behavior. In sonic terms, this gives the keyboard stunningly realistic sounds.

USB Audio Recorder & MP3 Playback


You can record your performance as audio data to a USB storage device. Connect a microphone or guitar to the instrument and enjoy recording a guitar and keyboard performance together, or record your singing along with song playback. Also it features playback of audio files in the "MP3 (.mp)" format commonly used by personal computers and portable music players.

Guide Lamps


The key guide lamps indicate the notes you should play, when you should play them, and how long you should hold them down. You can also practice at your own pace - since the accompaniment waits for you to play the notes correctly. Here, mute the right- or heft-hand part and try practicing the part using the guide lamps.

Auto Accompaniment


The auto accompaniment features let you produce automatic accompaniment playback simply by playing "chords" with your left hand. This lets you automatically recreate the sound of a full band or orchestra - even if you're playing by yourself. The auto accompaniment sound is made up of the rhythm patterns of the styles. The styles of the instrument cover a wide range of different musical genres including pop, jazz, and many others. Using these accompaniment styles lets everybody, even beginners, give accomplished solo performances.

Music Finder


When you want to play in a certain genre of music but don't know which settings to choose, what can you do? Music Finder has the answer. It offers an extensive range of music styles with pre-programmed voices and effects setups. Search for suitable styles. It instantly call up the best-suited voices, tempo and accompaniment style to match the song name or music style you wish to play. Simply call up a song title and start playing.

USB TO DEVICE Terminal
