Features of the Yamaha Arius YDP-181:
14 Preset Voices | A good variety of sounds on-board including Grand Piano, Electric Piano, Strings, Organ, Harpsichord, Vibraphone and Choir Voices.
Graded Hammer (GH) Keyboard | Yamaha designed this keyboard to react similar to an acoustic piano’s with the lower octave keys feeling heavier than then higher ones, which are more responsive. This gives the piano a more realistic playing feel.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling | This is Yamaha’s system of trigger various different samples depending on the velocity of the key played. This allows the tone of the piano to respond dynamically to the player, much like a traditional piano.
128 Note Polyphony | Polyphony is the number of notes that can be sounded at the same time and having a high polyphony means sustained tones will ring out, even if played very quickly.
Damper Resonance | Dampening samples are used to create the right tones to soften the piano pedaling. This allows the YDP-181 to produce the rich and complex sounds available in an acoustic piano.
Stereo 16cm Speakers | The larger size speakers on-board are the way to get deeper lows and greater bass response. Having speakers in stereo mean the piano player receives a full, balanced sound.
