Yamaha YDP141 Digital Piano
Yamaha YDP 141 Digital Piano provides true piano sound and feel. The Graded Hammer Standard keyboard of the YDP 141 make it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance.
The 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling Voices deliver remarkably authentic sound to the Yamaha YDP 141 Digital Piano. Moreover, the damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound. Dual Voice capability lets you play two different instrument sounds at the same time, while a 2-track song recorder allows you to capture your original musical ideas and performances.
Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard
Just as you’d expect with a traditional acoustic piano, lower notes on a GHS keyboard have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The matte finish of the black keys enhances the Yamaha YDP141 Digital Piano luxurious appearance.
Variable Touch Sensitivity
Select the hard, medium or soft setting on your Yamaha YDP141 Digital Piano to match your playing style or finger strength. Turn off sensitivity for a fixed response setting, ideal when playing the organ.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling
The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates the realism 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 expression.
Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes during fast, dense legato passages: sustained notes are cut off as the instrument “steals” notes to make room for new notes. A maximum of 64 notes can be played at once. Not so with the Yamaha YDP 141 Digital Piano!
It allows the sustain length to vary “step-by-step” depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains.
The built-in, 2-track performance memory allows you to record a backing track, and then step into the spotlight and solo over it. Best of all, you can change tempo or Voices even after you`ve recorded your performance. There`s also a built-in metronome to help you stay in perfect time.
