Introduction
Features
English
Yamaha’s Innovative Silencing System
•฀ The hammer shank stopper stops the movement of the hammer just before striking the string, and the optical
sensor will catch keystroke information precisely. The internal tone generator receives the keystroke information
and reproduces enrich sound of the piano.
•฀ The noncontact optical sensor faithfully detects subtle movement of the keys without affecting the touch of the
keys. You can enjoy the natural expression of the music.
Realistic Piano Voice
•฀ The piano voice is faithfully sampled from the Yamaha CFX concert grand piano. You can enjoy the clear and
beautiful tone of the piano.
•฀ The piano voice is sampled with the binaural sampling* method. Even if you listen through headphones, you can
enjoy the immersive sound, as if it sounds from the piano. In addition, you can enjoy the natural sound for a long
time without straining the ear.
•฀ The unit is equipped with various effects that reproduce the specific resonance of an acoustic piano (Damper
Resonance, String Resonance, and Sustain Sample). You can also add subtle sound produced when the keys are
released (Key-off Sample). By combining these, you can enjoy the realistic and rich piano sound even when used
with the Silent Piano™ function.
* Binaural sampling: method that uses two microphones set at the ear position of a performer and records the sound from a piano as it is.
Useful Features for Lesson
•฀ You can record your performance on the internal memory or commercially available USB storage device. Since
you can record your performance as an audio data (WAV) as well as a MIDI data (USB Audio Recorder), it is
now easy to create your own CDs or upload your performance to the net.
•฀ The metronome is built in this unit. You can practice playing or record your performance more accurately with the
metronome.
•฀ Since the unit has two headphone jacks, you can practice sharing your performance with others, or enjoy a duet.
The supplied headphones have an open type structure which reproduces the high-quality and clear sound.
•฀ 50 masterpieces of piano are preset on the unit. The unit also comes with a corresponding music book “50 greats
for the Piano.”
•฀ In addition to a piano voice, the unit has various voices of instruments, such as harpsichord or pipe organ.

Certain genres of music are composed based on scales
other than equal temperament, which is the common
piano tuning scale. You can enjoy various scales with
this setting.
You need to specify the root when you select a scale
other than equal temperament in the Scale setting.
One octave is divided into
twelve equal intervals.
Currently the most popular
piano tuning scale.

String Resonance
When the hammer of an acoustic piano strikes
the string, other strings will resonate, creating an
expressive tone. The effect that reproduces this
resonance is called “String Resonance effect.”
This effect reproduces the natural resonance on
the strings of the keys that are already held down
when you play the keyboard.
You can fine tune the pitch of audio song playback
or sound input through the AUX IN jack in 1 cent
increments.

Explanation
This sound was sampled from the Yamaha CFX concert grand piano. It uses different
samples depending on the strength of your playing and produces smoother tonal changes.
Even the tonal changes produced by the damper pedal and the subtle sounds of releasing
a key are reproduced. The sympathetic vibration (String Resonance) that occurs among
the strings of an acoustic piano has also been simulated. Suitable not only for classical
compositions but also for piano pieces of any style.
An electronic piano sound produced by an FM synthesizer. The tone will change as you
vary your playing touch. Ideal for popular music.
Pressing the soft pedal/shift pedal switches between on and off of the chorus effect.
The sound of an electric piano using hammer-struck metallic “tines.” Soft tone when played
lightly, and an aggressive tone when played hard.
Pressing the soft pedal/shift pedal switches between on and off of the chorus effect.
A different type of electric piano sound. Widely used in rock and popular music.
Pressing the soft pedal/shift pedal switches between on and off of the chorus effect.
The sound of the instrument frequently used in baroque music. Variations in playing touch
will not affect the volume, and a characteristic sound will be heard when you release the
key.
A harpsichord with an added upper octave. Produces a more brilliant sound.
Vibraphone played with relatively soft mallets. The tone becomes more metallic the harder
you play.
Pressing the soft pedal/shift pedal switches between on and off of the vibrato.
The sound of a celesta (a percussion instrument in which hammers strike metallic bars to
produce sound). This instrument is well-known for its appearance in “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies” from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite.”
This voice features the combination of pipes (8'+4'+2') of a principal (brass instrument)
organ. It is suitable for Baroque church music.
This voice features a full coupler of a pipe organ, famous for the sound used in Toccata and
Fugue by Bach.
A pipe organ sound that combines flute-type (woodwind type) stops of different pitches
(8'+4'). This is a gentle sound that is ideal for accompanying hymns.
A pipe organ sound that combines flute-type (woodwind type) stops of different pitches
(8'+4'+1-1/3'). This is brighter than Pipe Organ 3, and is suitable for solos.
The sound of a “tonewheel” type electric organ. Often heard in jazz and rock idioms.
Pressing the soft pedal/shift pedal switches the rotary speaker speed (fast and slow).
Stereo-sampled, large-scale strings ensemble with realistic reverb.
A big, spacious choir voice. Perfect for creating rich harmonies in slow pieces.
A warm, mellow, and spacious synth sound. Ideal for sustained parts in the background of
an ensemble.
Combination of the Piano and Strings (with a slower attack) voices (dual voice).
Combination of the Piano and Synth Pad voices (dual voice).
Combination of the Piano and Electric Piano 1 voices (dual voice).
