Yamaha Arius YDP-141 Digital Home Piano w/bench
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.
