Yamaha Arius YDP-141 Digital
Perfect for beginning students and experienced players alike, the ARIUS Series provides true piano sound and feel. the Graded Hammer Standard keyboard of the YDP-141 make it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance. The 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling Voices deliver remarkably authentic sound. Moreover, the damper pedal includes a half-damper effect, giving you nuanced expressive control over the sustained sound. Dual Voice capability lets you play two different instrument sounds at the same time, while a 2-track song recorder allows you to capture your original musical ideas and performances.
Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard
Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, lower notes on a GHS keyboard have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The matte finish of the black keys enhances the keyboard's luxurious appearance.
Variable Touch Sensitivity
Select the hard, medium or soft setting to match your playing style or finger strength. Turn off sensitivity for a fixed response setting, ideal when playing the organ Voice.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling
The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system that creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.
Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes during fast, dense, legato passages - sustained notes are cut off as the instrument "steals" notes to make room for new notes. A maximum of 64 notes can be played at once.
The built-in continuous or "half-damper" pedal allows for increased nuance and subtlety during sustained passages. This is done by allowing continuously increasing amounts of note sustain from slight to full, just like an acoustic piano.
The built-in, 2-track song recorder allows you to record 2 independent parts. For example, you could record yourself playing the left-hand part on one track and the right-hand part on another. This is a great way to learn how to play a difficult piece, one hand at a time. You could also record a string part on one track and a piano part on the other, an easy way to hear song and arrangement ideas.
Best of all, you can change tempo or Voices even after you've recorded your performance. Using MusicSoft Downloader and a compatible USB MIDI interface like the Yamaha UX16, you can transfer your user song to a personal computer for backup, printing with a scoring program or further editing using a MIDI sequencing program.
There's also a built-in metronome to help you stay in perfect time.
50 Preset Piano Songs
50 classic piano songs are provided in the song player and as a music book, "50 Greats for the Piano." These songs can be used for background music or as learning reference.
