WHAT YAMAHA SAYS...
The Yamaha's flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano, has now been sampled for the YDP 144. The world-renowned CFX, played at the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, has since been recognised one of the greatest concert grands of all time. And all thanks to the YDP 144, you can reproduce this incredible sound in the comfort of your own home, or studio.
The Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) technology has been introduced so you can adjust your sound automatically and enjoy a balanced sound at any volume level. So you can practise and play any time of the day. Even better! Yamaha’s stereo optimizer allows you to play for hours without being disturbed using headphones! Using carefully recorded samples, the YDP 144 allows you to take advantage of the library full of acoustic sounds. With your headphones on, you would think the sound was coming from the body of the instrument itself. An easy mistake to make, thanks to Yamaha’s quality sampling technology.
With Yamaha’s Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard action, you can enjoy a heavier touch in the lower end of your keyboard. And a lighter touch at the higher end. Inevitably replicating the touch and feel of the hammers inside an acoustic piano. You can develop your playing technique with the YDP 144. So when it comes to playing an acoustic piano, your hands will be ready!
The YDP 144 opens up a new world of apps to enhance your experience. The user-friendly set-up allows you to connect your smartphone or tablet to a series of bespoke apps. So you can explore endless playing possibilities. With the range of compatible apps, you can analyse your favourite songs, calculate the chords, display and play. The Smart Pianist app offers a variety of features that allow you to personalise your sound and performance. With the LCD display, the YDP 144 offers a graphical way for customers to easily control the piano’s sound. And manipulate its hammer strength, brightness, pedal point, resonance, and reverb. Explore endless possibilities with the YDP 144.
