Description 

The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX Concert Grand 

Yamaha YDP 144 with CFX Samples

Sampled from Yamaha's flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano, offering sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.


Authentic acoustic piano playability 

With an 88-key piano action, the Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves.

Designed for your personal enjoyment 

One of the allures of the grand piano is the sympathetic resonance created by the vibration of the entire instrument. All ARIUS models elaborately reproduce this rich sympathetic resonance through a groundbreaking technology called Virtual Resonance Modeling Lite (VRMLite).

VRM Lite creates a richly varied sound by simulating the complex sympathetic tones created when the vibrations of the strings are propagated to the soundboard and other strings, corresponding to the timing and intensity of key playing and pedaling.

CFX GRAND PIANO FEEL
The YDP-145 uses a newly developed tone escapement construction on the back of the cabinet that emanates sound from inside the piano. This allows you to experience the natural sound radiation and three-dimensional resonance akin to that of an acoustic piano

The YDP-145 offers convenient functions for when you cannot always play the piano at high volume.

Yamaha YDP144 Authentic Acoustic Playability

Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the sound automatically to allow players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level. Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the natural, spacious sound experienced when sitting in front of an acoustic piano, even when wearing headphones.

When using this function, voices sampled from acoustic pianos are perceived to come from the body of the instrument itself, not your headphones, providing a comfortable, natural experience.

Yamaha YDP144 Smart Pianist App

Optimal tone at any volume level 

With the Yamaha Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) feature, you can enjoy playing your digital piano at a lower volume in a quiet home environment. Before IAC was introduced, playing at a low volume resulted in a loss of treble and bass. With the development of IAC, the instrument automatically adjusts the balance of bass and treble, creating a more realistic sound with more depth. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) when played at a low volume. The ability to retain a rich and balanced sound on a digital piano, regardless of volume, ensures the highest sound quality.

Superb sound from a compact and stylish design 

The Acoustic Optimiser delivers naturally smooth tonal richness across the entire keyboard by regulating the flow of sound and control of tone from the cabinet of the instrument. Yamaha developed this new technology with an in-depth knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments.

A new kind of headphone experience 

When playing and listening to the instrument using headphones, the Stereophonic Optimiser adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the piano, resulting in a spacious, surround sound quality that will inspire you to play for hours at a time. Within this private listening environment, the sound of the piano can be perceived to come from the body of the instrument rather than from the headphones, providing a more realistic and natural experience.

Connect and interact with your instrument 

A standard USB cable can be used to connect the instrument to a computer or mobile device, opening up a world of creativity, entertainment, and education. iOS devices can be connected to the instrument using the Yamaha UD-BT01 Bluetooth adaptor, or a Lightning-USB camera adaptor. The instrument can be used to interact as a controller and/or sound source with a variety of music creation applications.
