A grand playing experience
Travel from your living room to the concert hall. The YDP 144 now includes samples from Yamaha's flagship piano - the Yamaha CFX concert grand. The CFX grand piano represents 19 years of research and development to combine traditional craftsmanship with modern day engineering. This harmonious combination enabled the engineers at Yamaha to examine every element of the piano, discovering how every detail can impact the sound.
In 2010, the CFX was the piano of choice by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition. Since then, the CFX has gained worthy recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of all time. Now you can experience this, all in the comfort of your own home. Boasting scintillating highs and a powerful bass, these CFX samples will transform your practice into a recital.
Intelligent Acoustic Control
Intelligent Acoustic Control provides a full, balanced sound with rich lows and clear highs even at low volume. One of the joys of the YDP 144 is that the volume can be adjusted to avoid disturbing others. However, playing at low volumes can make it difficult to hear bass and treble. The Intelligent Acoustic Control function automatically adjusts the sound, and the volume control makes fine adjustments to the speaker system, ensuring that you can always enjoy the utmost sound quality even at low volumes.
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.
Stereophonic headphone optimizer
A great feature of digital pianos is the ability to practice in silence using headphones. The YDP 144 has catered to this feature with the Stereophonic Optimizer. The Stereophonic Optimizer works by adjusting the spacing of the sound and the separation from the instrument, resulting in a natural and spacious surround sound quality, immersing you within the pianos natural tones. This helps to perceive the sound of the piano as coming from the body of the instrument rather than the headphones, providing a more realistic and natural playing experience.
