A digital piano with graded-hammer-action and remarkably authentic sound.
The Yamaha Arius Series provides true piano sound and feel. The graded-hammer keyboard on the Yamaha YDP141 digital piano makes it a true joy to play both in practice and in performance. The 3-level AWM dynamic stereo sampling voices deliver remarkably authentic sound. Moreover, the 88-key digital piano's damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound. Dual voice capability lets you play 2 different instrument sounds at the same time, while the Yamaha keyboard's a 2-track song recorder allows you to capture original musical ideas and performances.
Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard:
Just like a traditional acoustic piano, lower notes on a GHS keyboard have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The matte finish of the black keys enhances the Yamaha Arius piano keyboard's luxurious appearance.
Variable touch sensitivity:
Select the hard, medium, or soft setting to match your playing style or finger strength. Turn off sensitivity for a fixed response setting, which is ideal when playing the organ.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) dynamic stereo sampling:
The digital piano keyboard comes with AWM (Advanced Wave Memory), a sampling system that creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and apply high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. AWM dynamic stereo sampling can produce dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.
Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes during fast, dense legato passages: sustained notes are cut off as the instrument "steals" notes to make room for new notes. On the Yamaha Arius YDP141, a maximum of 64 notes can be played all at once.
Half-pedal control allows the sustain length to vary step-by-step depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains.
The 88-key Yamaha digital piano's built-in, 2-track performance memory allows you to record a backing track and then step into the spotlight and solo over it. Best of all, you can change tempo or voices even after you've recorded your performance. There's also a built-in metronome to help you stay in perfect time.
50 preset piano songs:
The Yamaha Arius YDP141 digital piano gives you a selection of 50 different piano songs for your listening pleasure. These recordings were chosen for their beauty as well as their functionality. Since many of the songs are classic piano pieces, anyone taking lessons can use them as a reference.
