Natural acoustic experience
Enjoy the authentic piano experience Yamaha can provide. The P515 digital piano is special with an Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling. Not only does this give you the same surrounding resonance of a concert grand, but also provides aliquot resonance in the upper octaves. This is a feature you won't find in many digital pianos. Aliquot is a stringing method that uses extra, un-stuck strings in the higher octaves to enrich the tone. These extra strings do this when they vibrate in sympathy with your other strings, adding complex colour to your sound.
Let your resonant tone project. Your P515 piano will soar out when you want it to with powerful amplifiers and a 2-way speaker system. Thanks to this system you'll be immersed in your beautiful tone. Another rare feature includes the twisted flare bass ports, which create a next-level bass sound. Your low-frequency reproduction will be clear and precise in ways bass notes often struggle.
Revolutionary NWX Keyboard
Play with the unrivalled warmth of natural wood. With the material for these exceptional keyboards, Yamaha has used their vast experience to select the best pieces to go beneath your fingers. You see this in that only the finest part of each tree is used. With such quality, you get a keyboard that resists buckling and warping much more than common laminated wood.
Add to this beautiful synthetic Ivory surfaces, textured synthetic Ebony black keys, and the authentic grand piano escapement mechanism feel, and you get a truly natural playing experience. This keyboard is weighted more heavily in the lower notes and then gradually gets lighter the higher you get, just like an acoustic. This authenticity means the P515 digital piano prepares you for anything. Learning the correct technique on a keyboard that is weighted in this way means you'll be able to sit down and play any piano, acoustic or digital.
Two legendary pianos in one
Enjoy two of the most famous concert grands. Many dream of playing either the Yamaha CFX or the Bösendorfer Imperial, but here you get an authentic experience of playing both. This gives you the chance to mix up your tone based on the genre of your music, whether that works better with the strong, full-bodied palette of the CFX or the warmest Vienna tones of the Imperial. Either way, the P515 is the best way to play these iconic piano sounds.
The P515 isn't just about its amazing acoustic performance. With over 500 voices, you have a world of options to get creative with. Mix it up from your traditional playing with over 40 rhythms to back up your melodies. You'll quickly get into the swing of things with 21 demo songs and 50 piano songs. As you master your new tunes, you can practise silently so you won't disturb anyone. With headphones, you don't lose sound quality thanks to binaural CFX sampling, designed to give you a realistic, natural sound at any volume.
External device connection
Who said pianos had to be traditional? The Smart Pianist app offers a range of features that places you in control. The app enables you to select instrument voices, adjust various settings, record your performance, and much more! You will find yourself making music faster with this app as it gives you the freedom to do it via your smart device.
Want to play along with your favourite songs? Now you can! Smart Pianist scans the audio songs loaded in your music library, analyses the chord progressions, and then displays them for you on the screen of your smart device. It's that simple. Play along as the chords scroll by, all the while hearing the song playback through your piano's speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will also allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play. Please note: Smart Pianist functionality may vary dependent on the model of Yamaha piano used.
