Yamaha P-515 Digital Piano
The Yamaha P-515 P-Series portable digital piano boasts state-of-the-art multisamples of the Yamaha CFX concert grand piano and the Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano, two of the finest, most coveted concert grand pianos in the world today.
The Yamaha P515 digital piano is the most advanced P-Series digital piano Yamaha has ever produced. Yamaha P-Series pianos have long been the go-to choice of professional pianists wanting a piano that is equally at home on the stage or in the studio.
The samples' loudness, brightness, and harmonic content of the P-515 piano are recorded at many velocity layers and respond to your playing dynamics exactly as the source acoustic pianos would.
Yamaha's Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) technology enhances the sound by duplicating the physical string and soundboard resonances that occur when notes are struck as other keys are held, or when the damper pedal is depressed. Key-release samples and a new Smooth Release function further ensure absolute acoustic piano realism.
The NWX graded action in the P515 is the first action of its kind to be deployed in a P-Series digital piano and features real wooden white keys with simulated ebony and ivory key surfaces whose texture assists finger grip and wicks away moisture. Additionally, an escapement mechanism perfectly duplicates the subtle tactile feedback caused by the hammers in a grand piano "escaping" the rest of the action just before they strike the strings. The result is a fingers-to-music connection unparalleled in any digital piano.
When you connect the P-515 to an Apple iPad or iPhone running the Yamaha Smart Pianist app, you open a world of music education and control features. The Smart Pianist app can analyze music library songs that reside on the phone or tablet, and then automatically create and display chord charts for them, keeping beginning musicians engaged in learning songs they already listen to and love. Score display from MIDI song files is likewise supported.
Smart Pianist also provides a quick and visual way to control all functions of the P-515. These functions include a selection of both piano and non-piano voices, as well as accompaniment rhythms, MIDI song recording, playback, and CD-quality audio recording (16-bit/44.1kHz WAV format) of performances to a connected USB flash drive, and much more.
The USB-to-host connection on the P-515 allows you to record both MIDI and audio directly to your computer DAW software without using an external audio interface. It’s an ideal choice for songwriters who want quick, piano-driven inspiration.
The integration of wooden keyboard components with the elements of modern technology in combination with the coveted piano samples from the Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos produce a digital piano that is a great addition to any professional studio or home.
If you desire the ultimate feel, tone, and performance of an acoustic piano, the Yamaha P515 is your ideal choice.
