Pure CF Sound Engine starts with a meticulous recording of Yamaha's acclaimed concert grand piano. This recording contains a number of dynamic levels from pianissimo to fortissimo so you can experience the delicate touch of a soft passage or the pure power of two-handed chords.
And the 192 note polyphony ensures that YDP-143 can handle demanding repertoire, even in complex passages, without losing notes.
For every piano player, the touch feeling like acoustic piano is essential. Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard realizes the heavier touch on lower notes, and lighter response on higher notes. The YDP-143 can be a reliable partner for you with this GHS keyboard having receivied high reputation for long time.
To make the YDP-143 be your favorite, you can select touch sensitivity from 3 types - hard, medium, or soft - depending on your finger strength or playing style. You can play with your favorite keyboard setting which matches to you.
The Acoustic Optimizer is a new, unique Yamaha technology. Using a special design and position within the instrument, the Acoustic Optimizer physically adjusts the acoustical flow which controls resonances and enriches the overall sound. The combination of Acoustic Optimizer and digital technologies provides an incredibly expressive capability.
For pianists who want to practice quietly, Intelligent Acoustic Control function automatically adjusts the sound so that you can still experience a balanced, rich tone even at low volumes.
For silent practice, a headphone connection socket is provided. Thanks to the dual headphone jacks, up to two people can enjoy playing the piano together in total privacy. Practice as much as you need before unplugging the headphones to let others hear your progress.
Continuous or half-damper pedal control provides detailed nuance and subtlety experienced when pedaling on a grand piano. This is done by allowing continuously increasing amounts of note sustain from slight to full as you depress the sustain pedal deeper.
Damper Resonance digitally reproduces the sympathetic interaction between strings on acoustic pianos. When the damper pedal is used in a performance, the harmonics of other strings wash over the notes you play until the pedal is released.
The recording function built into the instrument allows players to record performances with a single touch. Additionally, players can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, meaning that both hands can be recorded separately, or allowing them to overdub with different voices.
50 classic piano songs are provided in the song player and as a music book, "50 Greats for the Piano." Learn how to play these pieces at your own pace either one hand at a time or at a reduced tempo. Or, just listen to the songs as background music.
Easily connect and interact with a wide variety of educational, music creation or music entertainment apps on computers or mobile devices. Some apps help you learn to play, others help you share your music. The MusicSoft Manager app let's you store songs you make with the built-in recorder, but also lets you add songs obtained from 3rd parties.
"Digital Piano Controller" app with an attractive interface optimized for iOS touch screens adds a whole new level of functionality to your Yamaha instrument. Turn your iOS device into an intuitive instrument controller, allowing you to access features and settings even more quickly than using the panel of your instrument. Adjust settings, choose Voices, and even record performances. Once you try it, you'll never want to live without it!
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, or the 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.
