As the replacement for the Yamaha YDP223, the YDP181 has some big shoes to fill. But, based on its specifications, it should do an admiral job. Updated features include: dynamic stereo sampling, 128 note polyphony, 2-track, 3 song sequencer, damper resonance for richer sustained tones, and USB TO DEVICE port.
The Yamaha Arius YDP181 uses the USB device port for storing songs recorded on the instrument. The damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound, and Dual Voice capability lets you play two different instrument sounds at the same time. An on-board 2-track song recorder allows you to capture your original musical ideas and performances while practicing or performing.
The YDP181 is suited to students and experienced players alike, and provides true piano sound and feel. The Graded Hammer keyboard of the YDP-181 makes it a true joy to play, both in practice and performance, and the 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling Voices deliver remarkably authentic sound.
