Pure CF Sound Engine
The Pure CF Sound Engine is the result of many years of piano-making history and expertise, combined with state-of-the-art sampling technology. Yamaha is the industry leader in digital piano technology, and this is evident when listening to Yamaha digital pianos that utilize the Pure CF piano sample. The sound of the renowned Yamaha CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano is faithfully reproduced, allowing for incredible dynamics and expressiveness, making Pure CF-equipped digital pianos worthy of the Yamaha name.
Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard action with matte black key tops
A Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard provides a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, and is similar to the hammers inside an acoustic piano. GHS is great for the aspiring pianist, because practicing with the GHS action builds proper finger technique for playing on an acoustic piano. Additionally, the matte finish of the black keys makes them less slippery when playing for extended periods of time.
192 Note Polyphony
Polyphony is the measure of note data. With greater polyphony, more notes can be played simultaneously. This includes the notes played on the keys, as well as data such as sustain pedaling and accompaniment Styles or layered Voices. With 192 note polyphony, many of the most complex piano compositions can be played without any dropped notes, and the sustained notes ring through faithfully.
The Stereophonic Optimizer is unique to Yamaha. When playing and listening to the instrument using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the digital piano, resulting in a spacious surround sound quality that will inspire you to play for hours at a time. Within this private listening environment, the sound of the piano can be perceived to come from the body of the instrument rather than from the headphones, providing a more realistic and natural experience.
Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC)
With the Yamaha exclusive Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, people can enjoy playing their digital pianos at a lower volume in a quiet home environment. Before IAC was introduced, playing at a low volume resulted in a loss of treble and bass. With the addition of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a truer sound with more depth. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) when played at a low volume. This ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on the digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.
Yamaha developed this new technology with an in-depth knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments. Acoustic Optimizer delivers naturally smooth tonal richness across the entire keyboard by regulating the flow of sound and control of tone from the cabinet of the instrument.
Half-damper pedal control
Half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedaling on a grand piano. This feature allows for continuously increasing lengths of sustained notes, from slight to full, as the sustain pedal is depressed.
Damper Resonance DSP
"Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal. Similarly, Damper Resonance DSP provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. The result is more realistic sound, similar to that of an acoustic piano. It is possible to detect the subtle changes that occur when the players begins to press the pedal while striking a key.
2-track Song Recorder
The recording function built into the instrument allows players to record performances with a single touch. Additionally, players can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, meaning that both hands can be recorded separately, or allowing them to overdub with different Voices.
