There are many useful features built into the Yamaha YDP223 that apply to musicians at any level of playing ability. In fact, the YDP223 is the digital piano of choice for home hobbyists, professionals, music students and music institutions. For example, the keyboard has MIDI In/Out/Thru plus a To Host jack, which are necessary for connecting to computers. Anything you play on the digital piano can be captured into a music program in your computer and turned into music notation. If you wish, you can send the file to your friends and family or just archive it like you would a photograph.
The YDP223 digital piano combines great sound and features in an attractive cabinet that will add a touch of elegance to any home or church. It features an 88 Key Graded Hammer Action keyboard. Graded Hammer Action emulates the action of a grand piano – heavier in the bass and lighter in the treble areas of the keyboard (on a grand piano, the hammers get thicker as you move from treble to bass).
The YDP223 comes with 14 different voices for you to choose from. These include 2 Grand Pianos, 2 Electric Pianos, 2 Church Organs, 2 Harpsichords, Vibraphone, 2 Strings, Jazz Organ, Choir and Guitar. And you can combine two sounds at once, like Piano and Strings. For your learning and listening pleasure, you’ll find 50 built-in songs with Songbook. And finally, there is a matching padded bench.
