Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) with Synthetic Ivory Keytops
Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) 88-key piano action utilizes the same hammering system and springless mechanism of a grand piano. This action reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard in order to provide a grand piano-style response and feel. This allows for quick note repetition and authentic expressive control. The piano keyboard with synthetic ivory key tops provide a tactile surface to the white keys, absorbing moisture from the fingers and preventing them from slipping.
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.
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.
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.
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.
USB TO HOST
A standard USB cable can be used to connect the instrument to a computer or mobile device, opening up a world of creativity, entertainment, and education. iOS devices can be connected to the instrument using the Yamaha UD-BT01, the i-UX1 connecter cablE, or the Apple Camera Connection kit. The instrument can be used to interact as a controller and/or sound source with a variety of music creation applications.
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.
