Yamaha YDP-143 Arius Digital Piano Product Overview by GAK

The Yamaha YDP-143 Digital Piano in Black Walnut plays like a dream, sounds like an authentic acoutic piano, and boasts a range of features to help you progrss with your piano playing. It's one of the more affordable in the range, but don't worry, Yamaha haven't cut back on functionality. The YDP-143 will connect to a computer or why not connect it up to an iPad where you'll be able to experiment with host of learning tools. The Arius YDP-143 Bundle in black walnut digital piano feels great to play and would make a superb choice for anyone doing grades or wishing to elevate their playing to the next level. This digial piano features Yamaha's GHS keyboard action which helps to build up finger technique and strength. It's got the CFIIIS concert grand sound which is present in some of the more expensive models and new and improved reverb spatial effects to give you the feel of playing in different environments. The YDP-143 has 192 note polyphony for more complexed playing and that's one of just one of the reasons it would suit even the more accomplished of players.

Wrap Text around ImageGAK notes - People who are learning the piano will benefit from Yamaha's GHS keyboard. You might be wonder what the GHS keyboard is. The Graded Hammer Standard keyboard feels heavier to play at the bottom and lighter at the top, just like an acoustic piano. This helps you to adopt the proper piano playing technique. Yamaha, rather cleverly, also thought to include a matte finish on the black keys which are designed to be less slippery even if you've been practicing for some time. Sweat can sometimes cause your fingers to slip.

Yamaha Product Overview
The Pure CF Sound Engine is the result of many years of piano-making history and expertise, combined with state-of-the-art sampling technology. Yamaha is the industry leader in digital piano technology and this is evident when listening to Yamaha digital pianos that utilise the Pure CF Sound Engine. The sound of the renowned Yamaha CFIIIS 9' concert grand piano is faithfully reproduced, allowing for incredible dynamics and expressiveness, making Pure CF-equipped digital pianos worthy of the Yamaha name.

Half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedaling on a grand piano. This feature allows for continuously increasing lengths of sustained notes as the pedal is depressed. Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal. Similarly, Damper Resonance provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. The result is a more realistic sound, similar to that of an acoustic piano. It is possible to detect the subtle changes that occur when the player begins to press the pedal while striking a key.

The YDP-143 is pre-loaded with a variety of classic piano songs for listening and learning pleasure. You can use the accompanying book, "50 Greats for the Piano" to follow along with the music and learn how to play iconic pieces. You can also play back the songs to enjoy these recognisable piano favourites. This feature is sure to add hours of enjoyment to this outstanding instrument.

The Digital Piano Controller app for iOS touch screen devices adds a whole new level of functionality to your Yamaha instrument. Turn your iOS device into an intuitive controller, allowing convenient access to the features of your instrument. Adjust settings, select Voices, and even record performances.

Wrap Text around ImageGAK notes - Yamaha have included an easy to use recording function on the YDP143. You can record your performances at the touch of a button. The 2 track recording capabilities allow for simultaneous playback so you can overdub different sounds like strings as an example. If you want to play back via computer, you will need a piece of software that can read and play back Standard MIDI files.
Combine two Voices together, such as piano and strings, for an inspiring new playing experience. Nothing inspires piano practice like playing a piece with a different sound or creating unique combinations of two sounds together. Experiment to discover inspiring new ways to broaden your musical horizons.

With the Yamaha Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, you can enjoy playing your digital piano at a lower volume in a quiet home environment. Before IAC was introduced, playing at a low volume resulted in a loss of treble and bass. With the development of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a more realistic sound with more depth. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) when played at a low volume. The ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on a digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.

The Acoustic Optimiser delivers naturally smooth tonal richness across the entire keyboard by regulating the flow of sound and control of tone from the cabinet of the instrument. Yamaha developed this new technology with an in-depth knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments.

When playing and listening to the instrument using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimiser adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the piano, resulting in a spacious, surround sound quality that will inspire you to play for hours at a time. Within this private listening environment, the sound of the piano can be perceived to come from the body of the instrument rather than from the headphones, providing a more realistic and natural experience.

A standard USB cable can be used to connect the instrument to a computer or mobile device, opening up a world of creativity, entertainment, and education. iOS devices can be connected to the instrument using the Yamaha UD-BT01 Bluetooth adaptor, or a Lightning-USB camera adaptor. The instrument can be used to interact as a controller and/or sound source with a variety of music creation applications.
