      Current Model

        Yamaha YDPV240
        This instrument is discontinued

        The Yamaha YDPV240 is new to the ARIUS series, and is an entry-level ensemble digital piano with 88-note Graded Hammer Standard keyboard. The Graded Hammer Standard keyboard makes it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance. The 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling Voices deliver remarkably authentic sound and furthermore, the YDP-V240 incorporates a wide selection of amazingly realistic and dynamic sounds for hours of interactive music enjoyment.

        Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard with matte finish of black keys-YDPV240
        Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, the keys of the lower notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The keyboards sensitivity can even be adjusted to match your playing style. This Graded Hammer technology also enables the instrument to provide authentic touch in a lightweight instrument. The matte finish of the black keys enhances the keyboards luxurious appearance.

        Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling-YDPV240
        The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument and applying high-quality, digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.

        Amazingly Realistic and Dynamic Sounds-YDPV240
        Yamahas highly acclaimed Sweet! and Cool! Voices deliver incredibly natural and very dynamic sound. Use the Pitch Bend wheel and hear these Voices -- especially the Sax and Trumpet -- truly come alive!

        Digital Signal Processor (DSP)-YDPV240
        237 types of the DSP effect can be added to the Main and Dual Voices. These range from reverb-like ambience effects to distortion and other dynamic processing tools that let you enhance the sound, or completely transform it.

        Easy Song Arranger-YDPV240
        In addition to each songs default style, you can select any other style to play the song with the Easy Song Arranger feature. This means that you can play a song that is normally a ballad, as a bossa nova, as a hip-hop tune, etc. You can create totally different arrangements by changing the style of a song. You can also change the songs melody Voice and the keyboard Voice for a complete change of image.

        Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.)-YDPV240
        Play along with a song on the instruments keyboard and produce a perfect performance every time ... even if you play wrong notes! All you have to do is play on the keyboard, and youll sound like a pro as long as you play in time with the music.

        Music Database plus External Files-YDPV240
        You want to play music in your favorite style, but youre not sure how to select the best Voice and style for the type of music you want to play ... simply select the appropriate style from the Music Database. The panel settings will automatically be adjusted for the ideal combination of sounds and style! Furthermore, this instrument allows Music Database files transferred from a computer or stored on a USB flash memory device. These files can be used in the same way as the internal Music Database.

        The USB TO DEVICE port on the instrument allows you to connect USB memory devices such as flash drives or hard drives, enabling you to save or load registrations and user songs created on the instrument, as well as read data from the connected device such as MIDI files or style files.

        USB TO HOST-YDPV240
        Dive in and take advantage of the wide world of computer music software. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer-recorded parts with different instrument sounds - all from a single instrument.
