PureCF sampling offers the sound of a Yamaha CFIIIS full concert grand piano, meticulously tuned and sampled under carefully controlled conditions, to reproduce the authentic tone and resonance of this superb instrument with amazing fidelity.
Developed to capture the essence of an acoustic piano keyboard, Yamaha’s Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard offers the acoustic piano expression, allowing you to play with nuanced tone and subtle dynamics. It even duplicates the graded touch of an acoustic piano with a firm feel in the bass register that transitions to a lighter, delicate feel for the keys in the treble.
Authentic guitars, lush strings, punchy brass… Yamaha’s highly acclaimed Live!, Cool! and Sweet! Voices feature a unique blend of long, stereo and multi-layered samples that capture the essence of each instrument, right down to genuine resonance, expression and vibrato.
The DGX-660’s powerful stereo speakers are housed in large enclosures and feature separate woofers and tweeters that deliver powerful, distortion-free bass and pure treble with excellent dynamic control.
Yamaha’s amazing Smart Chord function offers all the backing you could want, automatically detecting the appropriate chord based on the notes you play with your left hand. You don’t even need to play a chord¾ just play a single note and Smart Chord will do the rest, providing full, professional-sounding accompaniment so you can enjoy performing.
