            Comments about Yamaha CP5 - 88-Key Stage Piano:

            So I've owned this about a year and a half now. I don't play professionally, I just enjoy music as a hobby. I was new to the world of electronic music when I bought this--it was a big step up from the Clavinova I bought circa 2000 (still not a bad instrument, by the way).

            First of all, it's not a synthesizer. It has a good range of bits you can tweak, if you're willing to take the (long) time to learn, but if you want a synth it is bound to come up short. It has a very limited recording capability, but I would recommend either using a computer or, as I did, buying a separate unit. (I've got a Tascam that's okay for that.)

            The action is heavier than the Clavinova was--it took some getting used to. Even now I sometimes wish for a bit lighter of an action when I play fast passages. But it's not unreasonable. They keys (and the whole unit) feel very sturdy, high quality.

            Sounds: I personally love the sounds. The pianos are everything I would have expected and then some. The electric pianos are pretty good too. Sometimes I just plug my way through the sounds and let them inspire me--they still blow my mind after all this time.

            If there's a downside, it's that it takes so long to learn. Yes, the interfaces could have been less clunky, but in reality there is just a lot to learn if you've never owned a machine of this caliber. Layering sounds, tweaking parameters, saving to the sound bank--I still learn new things every now and then. If you aren't interested in putting in some learning hours, you should probably go find something cheaper and easier to use, like my old Clavinova.

            If you're a newbie using this in your house, I recommend getting a pair of studio monitor speakers. Yamaha makes some really excellent ones. Don't cheap out. An awesome keyboard played through bargain basement speakers is going to sound bargain basement and not awesome.

            Comments about Yamaha CP5 - 88-Key Stage Piano:

            Best"bang-for-the-buck"stage piano out there.Keep in mind it´s not a"synth"per-say and was designed primarily to be a great portable piano..in other words,if you like extreme tweaking,this is not the axe for you.Sounds are pretty well ready and don´t need much tweaking anyway.The insert efx are smooth and invisible,especially the reverb/delay used on the mic input.Besides the warmth of the piano,the touch and over all feel is what sold me.Only 3 drawbacks;1:No option to assign a foot switch or the pitch wheel to control Leslie speed(I tried EVERYTHING)Being in the middle of the keyboard,that knob is awkward and easy to miss.2;no global ins efx.I.E.2 organ voices in a left/right split cannot share a Leslie.3:Operation Manual is a bit confusing.

              Comments about Yamaha CP5 - 88-Key Stage Piano:

              Yamahas have been my board of choice for the last 14 years. This CP5 Is by far the best yet. If you are a no nonsense-straight forward musician that doesn't need bells and whistles to sound good, then this board is for you. If you need technology to cover up for the lack of musicianship look elsewhere. The lack of reviews and the ability to physically put my hands on it made me leery about purchasing. But based on Yamaha's track record with all other boards I own I'm very glad I took that leap. I'm just believe reviews are only as good as the reviewer, but for once I must speakup and give my opinion. I'm a bass player/vocalist with 40+ years of experience, 20+ years as a keyboardist, and from a family of Church musicians and singers and I'll stand on belief that the CP5 for the price is an outstanding instrument. And by the way, only reason I purchased another board was because I felt after 14 years I wanted to treat myself. The other 3 are still in perfect condition, Now you go figure.

              Comments about Yamaha CP5 - 88-Key Stage Piano:

              I've had this keyboard for about a year and a half. I use it for recording, but mainly just for playing at home as a hobby. It has beautiful sound and a great feel. The key weighting is a little heavier than I was used to. It can be challenging to play very fast passages, but overall I still like it.

              There are quite a few presets. I find that I stick mainly to the few presets I like, although I have some custom settings as well. If you like the preset but it comes with a beat, you can always use the custom user settings to get rid of that. And the custom settings are useful in pinpointing the exact sound you're looking for.

              It's expensive, but personally I believe it's worth every penny.

                Comments about Yamaha CP5 - 88-Key Stage Piano:

                Boy was I disappointed when I got this online. Couldn't believe the collection of average sounds this has. It is as if we are still in the 90's. And just try to access these sound. No easy task. Think you can just scroll to them. No way. Piano is based on algorithms rather than samples. Vastly disappointed. Saw a demonstration video and was completely taken in. Some sounds will start drums playing automatically ruining any concentration you might have had. Yamaha is stuck somewhere in the past.... Cost me a lot to send it back.
