The Yamaha CP88 stage piano brings to you all the best sounds, features and feel that Yamaha has to offer. Amongst the impressive array of 50 top quality sounds and 160 live-set-sounds, you'll come across incredibly detailed piano's painstakingly sampled from Yamaha's own top of the range Grands, organs, percussive, orchestral and synth. Vintage sounds also come as standard including the legendary CP88, and all powered by the incredible AWM2 sound engine.
Easy to use - great for stage
The CP88 is designed for the stage and has an interface that makes accessing all features of the CP88 quick and easy. Voice category buttons give you immediate access to your favourite sounds making changing voices mid-performance very simple. The large lighted buttons make it easy to split and layer sounds even in the darkest of venues, allowing you to switch from a full piano, to a piano voice layered with strings, or piano with a split bass sound. Seamless sound switching also means that the natural decay and release of a tone will not be cut when changing sounds, making your performance sound totally organic.
Graded Hammer 88 note keyboard
Players today need a playing experience that matches the quality of sound and the CP88 delivers effortlessly here too. Fitted with an 88-key Natural Wood Graded Hammer (NW-GH3) keyboard with synthetic ebony and ivory key tops. This gives the CP88 an incredibly authentic piano touch. But there's no compromise on portability either, weighing in at 18Kg, the slim designed CP88 can be taken anywhere.
Built in effects
To polish and personalise, the CP88 comes with a full digital effects processor built in. Reverbs ranging from small rooms to massive halls, rich choruses, compression, EQ and an array of insertion effects can be layered onto your sound and stored for later use in any of the 64 user performance memory allocations. A 3-band EQ is also built in allowing for you to tweak the timbre to your exact specification.
Control and connectivity are key to any performer and above the keyboard, you'll find pitch-bend and modulation levers, all manner of logically laid out encoders to alter the volumes, effects and timbre of multiple voices and a clear LCD screen to display any vital info. The CP88 has connections for 2 foot controllers, MIDI and USB MIDI and storage. For audio, there is a pair of 1/4" jack outputs and for quiet playing and practice, there's a headphone output too for when quiet practice or monitoring is required.
The Yamaha CP88 Digital Stage Piano is nothing short of incredible. For the musician that needs authentic piano feel, and incredible sound engine but still needs something portable, the CP88 is a must.
