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 utilise the Pure CF Sound Engine. 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.
A Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) 88-key piano keyboard has a heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, similar to the hammers inside an acoustic piano. GHS is great for the aspiring pianist, building strength and technique. Additionally, the matte finish of the black keys makes them less affected by moisture when playing for extended periods of time.
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 as the pedal is depressed. Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal. Similarly, Damper Resonance provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. The result is a more realistic sound, similar to that of an acoustic piano. It is possible to detect the subtle changes that occur when the player begins to press the pedal while striking a key.
The YDP-143 is pre-loaded with a variety of classic piano songs for listening and learning pleasure. You can use the accompanying book, "50 Greats for the Piano" to follow along with the music and learn how to play iconic pieces. You can also play back the songs to enjoy these recognisable piano favorites. This feature is sure to add hours of enjoyment to this outstanding instrument.
The built-in recording function captures performances* with a single touch. You can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, enabling both hands to be recorded separately, or allowing you to overlay parts with different voices. * Recordings are made in Standard MIDI file (SMF) format. Compatible software is required for playback of the recorded data on a computer.
Combine two Voices together, such as piano and strings, for an inspiring new playing experience. Nothing inspires piano practice like playing a piece with a different sound or creating unique combinations of two sounds together. Experiment to discover inspiring new ways to broaden your musical horizons.
With the Yamaha Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, you can enjoy playing your digital piano 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 development of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a more realistic 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. The ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on a digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.
When playing and listening to the instrument using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimiser adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the 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.
