    Simplified control, built-in recorder, exceptional piano sound in a casing with a beautiful walnut finish, plus matching bench and plus 3-pedal unit.

    Yamaha's DGX-640 with walnut finish 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 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. This model includes a walnut stand and sides with matching BB1 padded bench as well as an LP-7 pedal unit.

    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.

    LP-7 Pedal
    The LP-7 Pedal Unit for Yamaha YPG-635 electric piano is a 3-pedal unit that gives you virtually the same level of expressive control as that of actual acoustic grand pianos, including Half Damper effect, with more realistic control over the sustained sound. In addition to Damper, Soft, and Sostenuto control, the left pedal adds special control to the Classical Guitar and Sweet Muted Trumpet voices.

          Comments about Yamaha DGX-640 88-Key Digital Piano Walnut with BB1 Padded Bench & LP-7 Pedal Unit:

          My research consisted of reading reviews and watching online videos of the product in action.

          I ordered it on a Monday and had it Wednesday morning (via 4-5 day ground).

          Setting up the stand and bench, including connecting the pedal kit, only took about a half hour and was intuitively simple. The pedal kit is actually a beam that goes along the bottom and adds to the stability and strength of the stand. The bench is sturdy and simple. It doesn't have storage.

          The primary voices (!) sound amazing. There are hundreds of other voices which are probably as good as anyone else's. The menus give you lots of freedom to tweak things.

          I weighed economy vs quality and the DGX 640 W hit the sweet spot dead on.

          I'm very happy w/ my new piano.

          Comments about Yamaha DGX-640 88-Key Digital Piano Walnut with BB1 Padded Bench & LP-7 Pedal Unit:

          This was a replacement for the previous model (yamaha DGX-500) that was on loan from an instructor. The keys on this are weighted MUCH better than the previous model. and for the price- probably about as good as you'll find. It didn't quite compare with some 2000 simoleon keyboard/synthesizers, but again, it's less than 1/2 the price.

          I was very pleased with the fit and finish overall and have no reason to think this won't last a long time.

          Now as for sound- the different voices have some VERY different output volumes as compared to the previous model. For example, voice 001 (the basic grand piano sound) is fairly quiet compared to the old model, BUT without changing the volume, if the keyboard is switched to say a harpsichord voice, it is blaringly loud. This was not the case on the old model- there was an even compression across the board.

          Volume issues aside. the voices sound really great. there are a ton of menu choices. and this will be a great stepping stone until we have room/budget for a real piano.

            I am getting ready to retire and want to learn to play piano. A keyboard was recommended by my pianist friends. Looked at a number of models online and solicited recommendations. This tended to have it all. Realistic key action, 88 keys, numerous "voices", attractive bundle,good price and reliable seller. Have had a pianist play it and they were impressed at the action and versatility. I had a couple of questions and the folks at MF were very helpful without making me feel like a novice. There was a short backorder delay, but it came in a reasonable time. Very easy to set up and able to be played, not by me!, immediately. I am really looking forward to being able to spend some quality time learning to play and enjoying the instument.
