Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling
The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying 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. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.
The piano sound is a sampling from one Yamaha Full Concert Grand Piano "CFIIIS", which has won high acclaim at the world's most famous concert halls and music competitions. The best piano was selected, and an experienced tuner adjusted it to ensure it was in top condition. Sampling is carefully performed over a long period, from when the sound starts until it fades out, to reproduce a natural sound and attenuation not commonly seen in digital pianos. In addition, they also focus on the change in timbre due to the strength or weakness of the key strike that is unique to acoustic pianos. Sound sampling covered more than 10 stages of key strike strength for each keyboard.
The Yamaha development team spent a lot of time together with pianists in thorough pursuit of the optimum touch and timbre combination, resulting in the achievement of natural sound changes that sound like a person is actually playing a grand piano, no matter how the keyboard is played.
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. A maximum of 64 notes can be played at once. Featuring 64-note polyphony, the YDP-161 allows the performance of dense passages even when layering sounds via the Dual Voice feature. Yamaha's technology ensures there is no unnatural sound cut-off even during heavy sustain pedal usage so no notes are lost during performance.
Half-Pedal Control Widens the Range of Expression
Sustain length can vary "step-by-step" depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The further you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains. Yamaha focuses on the expressive power of pedaling. Three pedals are attached to the cabinet: damper, soft, and sostenuto. The damper pedal offers a half-pedal response that can handle micro-adjustments of its strength.
Graded Hammer (GH) Keyboard offers quality and a natural playing feel
Yamaha, using its century-old grand piano-making expertise, created a keyboard that offers a natural playing feel. Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, lower notes on a GH keyboard have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. With stability and endurance in response to any kind of performance, it offers the reliability and quality expected of Yamaha keyboards.
50 Preset Piano Songs and Song Book Included
A selection of 50 different piano songs is provided 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 listen to them for reference.
In addition to the realistic Grand Piano Voice, you can play other instruments like Vibraphone, Electric Piano, Harpsichord and Church Organ. There’s also a rich Strings Voice that sounds great when used in Dual Voice mode with the Acoustic Piano.
Filled with Convenient Functions
The YDP-141 never requires tuning or any other service required by an acoustic piano. It also comes with two headphone jacks so you can play any time of day or night. There’s also a built-in metronome essential for practicing, a headphone hanger, and many more convenient features.
Music Software Downloader lets you transfer purchased music data to the instrument
Use the Yamaha free software Music Software Downloader1 to transfer music data on the PC (MIDI) to the instrument's built-in memory. (Music Software Downloader is compatible with Windows only.) Requires the USB-MIDI interface "UX-16" to transfer the files.
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, ideal when playing the organ.
Damper Resonance samples provide rich and evolving tones produced by pedaling. Using these comprehensive gradations, YDP-141 can realistically reproduce the complex sounds of a grand piano.
The easy to use, built-in 2-track recorder lets you capture your music and plays it back. Play both hands together and use the second track to add a different part. Or play one part at a time and rehearse complicated pieces. There's also a built-in metronome to help you stay in perfect time.
