The latest acoustic technology, "Acoustic Optimizer" for incredible sound
The Acoustic Optimizer is a new, unique Yamaha technology. Using a special design and position within the instrument, the Acoustic Optimizer physically adjusts the acoustical flow which controls resonances and enriches the overall sound. The combination of Acoustic Optimizer and digital technologies provides an incredibly expressive capability.
For comfortable practice at home
For pianists who want to practice quietly, Intelligent Acoustic Control function automatically adjusts the sound so that you can still experience a balanced, rich tone even at low volumes.
For silent practice, a headphone connection socket is provided. Thanks to the dual headphone jacks, up to two people can enjoy playing the piano together in total privacy. Practice as much as you need before unplugging the headphones to let others hear your progress.
Continuous or half-damper pedal control provides detailed nuance and subtlety experienced when pedaling on a grand piano. This is done by allowing continuously increasing amounts of note sustain from slight to full as you depress the sustain pedal deeper.
Damper Resonance digitally reproduces the sympathetic interaction between strings on acoustic pianos. When the damper pedal is used in a performance, the harmonics of other strings wash over the notes you play until the pedal is released.
Record for self-check. Convenient 2-track song recording for every piano player.
The built-in, 2-track song recorder is a great way to capture a performance and play it back to hear your progress. You can also record the right and left hands separately for hands-separate practicing at any tempo you're comfortable with. So now you can practice one hand while song recorder plays the other.
50 Preset Piano Songs with music book
50 classic piano songs are provided in the song player and as a music book, "50 Greats for the Piano." Learn how to play these pieces at your own pace either one hand at a time or at a reduced tempo. Or, just listen to the songs as background music.
USB TO HOST
Easily connect and interact with a wide variety of educational, music creation or music entertainment apps on computers or mobile devices. Some apps help you learn to play, others help you share your music. The MusicSoft Manager app let's you store songs you make with the built-in recorder, but also lets you add songs obtained from 3rd parties.
