Simplified control with built-in recorder and exceptional piano sound.

Yamaha's DGX-640 was designed to be as close to a piano as a Portable Grand can be with its 88-key weighted Graded Hammer Standard keyboard action and wide selection of piano voices. Selecting a sound is as easy as keying in a number, and recording virtuoso performances is simple with the built-in recorder. The included Yamaha Education Suite and USB connectivity add full functionality.

Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, the keys of the lower notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The keyboard's sensitivity can even be adjusted to match your playing style. This Graded Hammer technology also enables the instrument to provide authentic touch in a lightweight instrument. The matte finish of the black keys enhances the keyboard's luxurious appearance.

Amazingly Realistic and Dynamic Sounds
Yamaha's highly acclaimed Sweet! and Cool! Voices deliver incredibly natural and very dynamic sound. Use the Pitch Bend wheel and hear these Voices—especially the Sax and Trumpet—truly come alive.

Live!, Cool! and Sweet! Voices
Live!, Cool! and Sweet! Voices gives you a huge palette of acoustic and electronically amplified instrument sounds. A blend of long, stereo and multilayered samples is used to fully capture the natural presence, resonance, expression, and vibrato of the real instrument.

Digital Signal Processor (DSP)
237 types of DSP effects can be added to the Main and Dual Voices. These range from reverb-like ambience effects to distortion and other dynamic processing tools that let you enhance the sound or completely transform it.

Easy Song Arranger
In addition to each song's default style, you can select any other style to play the song with the Easy Song Arranger feature. This means that you can play a song that is normally a ballad, for example, as a bossa nova piece or hip-hop tune, etc. You can create totally different arrangements by changing the style in which a song is played. You can also change the song's melody Voice and the keyboard Voice for a complete change of image.

Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.)
Play along with a song on the instrument's keyboard and produce a perfect performance every time—even if you play wrong notes. All you have to do is play on the keyboard—alternately on the left- and right-hand ranges of the keyboard, for example—and you'll sound like a pro as long as you play in time with the music.

Music Database plus External Files
You want to play music in your favorite style, but you're not sure how to select the best Voice and style for the type of music you want to play? Simply pick a style from the Music Database. The panel settings will automatically be adjusted for the ideal combination of sounds and style! Furthermore, this instrument works with Music Database files transferred from a computer or stored on a USB flash memory device. These files can be used in the same way as the internal Music Database.

USB TO DEVICE
The USB TO DEVICE on the instrument allows you to connect USB memory devices such as flash drives or hard drives, enabling you to save or load registrations and user songs created on the instrument, as well as read data from the connected device such as MIDI files or style files.

USB TO HOST
Dive in and take advantage of the wide world of computer music software. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer-recorded parts with different instrument sounds—all from a single instrument.

Performance with Music Notation Display
When you play back a song, the corresponding score will be shown on the display. This is a great way to learn how to read music. If the song contains lyric and chord data, the lyrics and chords will also appear on the score display.

Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.)
Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) is an advanced set of helpful learning tools built into the instrument, letting you teach yourself how to play and perform. Y.E.S. helps you master a song with easy lesson steps. Each lesson can be done in isolation with either your left hand or right hand, or both.

Comments about Yamaha DGX 640 88 Key Digital Piano:

This is a great instrument for people who don't have the space for a full size piano. Sounds great, lots of options, easy to use, good action. Its sturdy construction is great, but makes it heavy, which is fine with me because I rarely move it.

Comments about Yamaha DGX 640 88 Key Digital Piano:

Bought for my daughter to learn the piano on. Very realistic sounds and action. As a novice, I can't tell the difference in feel between it and a real piano.

This is really overkill for learning the piano, however. It has so many built-in features that a novice many never use, BUT it does have some instruction programs built-in that look promising. I believe you can even upload your own midi files to learn to.

There are so many features that I suggest you visit the Yamaha web site to get an overview of them all.

Also, Musician's Friend had the best price and very fast shipping. I highly recommend ordering from them.

Comments about Yamaha DGX 640 88 Key Digital Piano:

We are enjoying this keyboard! It is not a "toy," but neither is it so complicated that it might run the space station. The sounds are nice and there is a wide selection of them. The unit is well-built and looks like it will last.

Comments about Yamaha DGX 640 88 Key Digital Piano:

After I finally pulled it out of the box and placed it on the stand, Oh my back. Found the power supply and the foot pedal. Jacked them into place. I had forgot what nice sounded like. Comparing it to my old digital piano a hugh improvement. I surely hope the FBC Praise Band will enjoy it as much as I am sure I will. A needed rest now. LOL.

I am so excited to open the box. It is setting in my living room at the moment un-opened. However; I do expect to enjoy the instrument, because I have had a Yamaha before, but smaller. I antisipate many hours of enjoyment.

Comments about Yamaha DGX 640 88 Key Digital Piano:

We were looking around for a keyboard so we could add our daughter to our family band. This keyboard has really great key action, better than anything we tried in stores in a similar price range. Only the high end electric pianos had similar or better keys.

Lots of sounds, rhythms, learning aids, etc. Basic use is super simple but advanced setup takes a lot of learning and the manual could be a little more complete.

Can highly recommend this keyboard.

      Great keyboard for the price

      By JimERNC

      from Elkview, WV

      About Me Professional Musician

      Pros

      • Responsive / Good Action
      • Touch Sensitive Keys

      Cons

      • Heavy

      Best Uses

      • Accompaniment

      Comments about Yamaha DGX 640 88 Key Digital Piano:

      I am a trained musician and am not satisfied with most electronic keyboards because of their unrealistic key action and sound. Some of them are simply toys. This keyboard, although not perfect, impressed me immediately with its key response and full sound, especially from its own speakers. As some reviewers have indicated, many of the included voices are simply childish, but the number of great, usable sounds is quite extensive.

      I recommend purchasing the optional stand with three pedals. It's easy to assemble and provides a sturdy base.

      I generally plug my DGX-640 into our church's sound system, but the internal speakers are quite adequate for personal use. The DGX-640 even has internal menu items allowing me to optimize the tone for internal speakers or external amplification. I would like to be able to hear the internal sound even when I run a line to an external amp from the headphone jack. It would be nice to have a separate headphone jack on the front.

      One of the above reviews says that MIDI is not included. Indeed, there are no legacy-style MIDI IN/OUT/THRU ports, but MIDI is enabled through a single USB port. I use my keyboard to record multi-track soundtracks for our church, using the internal 6-track recorder and/or USB MIDI with my computer's Sonar software.

      PRO: Too inexpensive to pass up with the quality of action and sound. Nice MIDI implementation (USB Std to USB D).

      CON: Difficult to electronically transpose on the fly. Internal speakers are bypassed when output port is occupied. Somewhat heavy, if portability is an issue. Headphone jack doubles as line out; need a separate HP jack on front.
