Introducing the Yamaha Arius YDP144 digital piano
The Yamaha YDP144 is the first 'piano style' model in the latest digital piano lineup, and with its fully weighted 88 note, graded hammer action keyboard and authentic piano sound in a compact, piano style cabinet is the ideal first step on your musical journey. The Yamaha CFX concert grand piano has been re-sampled for this latest range of YDP series digital pianos, and also includes key-off resonance, string resonance and damper resonance for an authentic response.
Features such as Stereophonic Optimiser and Intelligent Acoustic Control for improved tonality through headphones have been borrowed from the higher end Clavinova models, and there is also a two track record facility with a metronome to assist with practising. Compatibility with Yamaha's Smart Pianist app makes learning fun and intuitive, and it also acts as a remote control for the pianos sounds.
The ARIUS YDP-144 is an affordable digital piano, perfect for students or hobbyists looking for an attractive instrument for their home.
The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX concert grand piano
Newly sampled for the YDP-144, the Yamaha's flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano, offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.
Authentic acoustic piano playability
With an 88-key piano action, the Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves.
Designed for your personal enjoyment
The YDP-144 offers convenient functions for when you cannot always play the piano at high volume. Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the sound automatically to allow players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level. Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the natural, spacious sound experienced when sitting in front of an acoustic piano, even when wearing headphones. When using this function, voices sampled from acoustic pianos are perceived to come from the body of the instrument itself, not your headphones, providing a comfortable, natural experience.
Get more with the Smart Pianist App
Enjoy the piano more with Smart Pianist, a dedicated app that adds a beautiful graphic interface and a variety of incredible features to your compatible Yamaha digital piano. From selecting instrument Voices or adjusting settings to practicing with a metronome or recording your masterpieces, Smart Pianist gets you to making music faster and lets you focus on the fun. It even helps you learn your favourite songs by analysing the chord progressions from the audio file and displaying them on the screen of your smart device for you to play.
