"Our new Spectral Component Modeling process in the CP lineup reproduces the sound and expressiveness of acoustic and vintage electronic pianos better than any technology has ever done," said Athan Billias, Director of Marketing for Yamaha's Pro Audio and Combo Division. "For professional players on stage, the new CP series sets a new standard and we invite anyone to compare these against any other stage piano on the market, regardless of price."
The Spectrum Component Modeling system replicates the instrument's physical components for ultra-realistic tone generation, including the hardness of the hammers, resonance of the sound board and the striking position of the hammers. It also relies on granular parametric data that translates every nuance of the player's touch into an expressive tone. CP50 models also use Virtual Circuit Modeling to replicate the effect units, amplifiers, compressors, EQ and other equipment that were so essential in creating many of those legendary vintage sounds.
The Yamaha CP50 Stage Piano also offers the core sounds of the Spectrum Component Modeling feature and includes six acoustic and electric piano sounds. It is also equipped with 215 additional sounds and effects and the keyboard consists of Yamaha's Graded Hammer Action keys, along with a customize function, recording and playback options for MIDI and audio, 100 rhythm patterns and a convenient Master Keyboard function.The Yamaha CP50 Stage Piano features rugged construction, 88 keys, great retro looks, 128-note polyphony and USB-to-Host and USB-to-Device connectivity.
