Yamaha Announces New YDP142

Yamaha YDP142

This is the time of year when music manufacturers begin making announcements of new products that are “coming soon”. The new Yamaha YDP142 Arius digital piano is one such product.

The YDP142 is replacing the popular YDP141, with new features and finishes. New features include: PureCF Sound Engine, Acoustic Optimizer and 128 note polyphony (the YDP141 had 64 note polyphony). The new finishes include the traditional Rosewood finish YDP142R, and a new Black Walnut finish, YDP142B. Yamaha decided to add a black finish to this series, because black is the most popular color for acoustic pianos.

Yamaha has been producing well-made and affordable electronic pianos since the 1970’s, when they introduced the CP30 and CP70B electric grand. And now, they’re adding the YDP142 to the fold. With its new features and finishes, it’s sure to be a winner!

Yamaha P-105 88-Key Weighted Action Digital Piano

The new Yamaha P-105, a new portable digital piano featuring Yamaha piano touch and tone, was introduced at Summer NAMM 2012. The P-105 is for anyone looking for an affordable and great sounding 88-key weighted action keyboard.

The Yamaha P-105 has an 88-note, Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) weighted action keyboard that feels heavier in the low end and lighter in the top, just like the keys of an acoustic piano. It also features the PureCF sound engine that recreates the sound of Yamaha’s famous CFIIIS concert grand piano.

The versatile USB TO HOST port and line-level AUX outputs allow a variety of connectivity options with everything from an amplifier to an iPad. Additionally, with the optional Apple Camera Connection Kit, the world of Yamaha Apps like Piano Diary and NoteStar opens up all sorts of possibilities. With its increased 128-note polyphony, the P-105 ensures the suppression of dropped notes even with simultaneous Dual & Split modes and a drum pattern playing. In the EQ department, Intelligent Acoustic Control provides full, balanced sound that adapts to each user’s volume setting for the best possible tone at any level.

The P-105 also allows for side-by-side piano practice for two people using the new Duo mode, a distinctive benefit that makes it ideal for schools teaching group lessons as it accommodates two students per piano, each with their own middle C.

Additional features include ten pianist styles that essentially give the user a built-in duet partner that plays along in one of ten different playing varieties like boogie woogie, stride piano, or ballad Arpeggios. Furthermore, the built-in Rhythms offer ten versatile patterns as an alternative to the traditional metronome and this virtual drummer is always on time.

Yamaha P105 Features:
New PureCF Sound Engine – CFIIIS samples
88-Key Graded Hammer Standard
USB-to-host Port
Line Outputs with iPad Connection
Dual and Split Modes
Drum Pattern Playing
