Rich, expressive piano sound
The 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 128 note polyphony ensures that YDP-142 can handle demanding repertoire, even in complex passages, without losing notes.
GHS keyboard with matte black keytops
For every piano player, touch and response like that of an acoustic piano is essential. Yamaha’s Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard recreates the heavier touch on lower notes, and ligther touch on higher notes. Touch sensitivity can be adjusted to suit different playing styles and abilities.
The latest acoustic technology, “Acoustic Optimizer” for incredible sound
The Acoustic Optimizer is a new, unique Yamaha technology. Using a special design and position within the instrument, the Acoustic Optimizer physically adjusts the acoustic flow of sound which controls resonances and enriches the overall tone. The combination of Acoustic Optimizer and digital technologies provides an incredibly expressive capability.
For comfortable practice at home
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, 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 the detailed nuance and subtlety experienced when pedaling on a grand piano. This is done by creating continuously increasing amounts of sustain as you depress the damper pedal further.
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 are recreated.
Convenient 2-track song recording
The built-in 2-track song recorder is a great way to capture your performance and play it back to hear your progress. You can also record the right and left hands separately for practicing.
