The Yamaha NP-32 is a portable, lightweight keyboard, offering 76 full-sized touch-responsive keys. It features Yamaha's 'Graded Soft Touch' to make the lower keys feel slightly heavier and the higher keys lighter, as you would expect on an actual piano. The NP-32 uses AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) to ensure the model delivers a rich sound. Its lightweight construction, weighing just less than 6 kg, makes it easily transportable to gigs and other venues.
Premium grand piano sound
The Yamaha NP-32 has 10 preset voices including a stunning, sampled Yamaha Grand piano. You have the option to overlay voices, such as piano and strings to create rich, expressive timbres. The voices use AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) sampling, which helps subtle nuances of real acoustic instruments come across in a digital format. The NP-32 also has the capability to play up to 64 notes at any one time so that you can play expressive arpeggios without notes dropping out.
The NP-32 contains 10 piano demo tracks, metronome, tempo range (32-280), transpose (-6 to 0, 0 to +6) and tuning. Fine-tuning the NP-32 makes it a pleasure to accompany fellow musicians and play along to recorded tracks. The NP-32 has a headphone socket for private practice, MIDI in/out and may be used with a sustain pedal for more expressive play.
Built in reverb
Helping your performance to sit in a mix and sound more professional, the NP-32 features 4 different reverb types. These can be easily activated during a performance and are of a great quality, giving you a reverb for any style of playing.
Built in amplification
The NP-32 delivers its sound via powerful 2 x 6W amplifiers and 2 x (12cm x 6cm) speakers. Powered by either an adapter or batteries, the NP-32 has an impressive battery life of 6 hours, great for when mains power is impractical. Available in black or silver the NP-32 comes with a music rest and features Yamaha's innovative power-off mode, switching itself off after an idle time of 30 minutes to save power and conserve battery life.
The NP-32 features a USB to host connection, this means you can record your performance into your favourite computer music software as MIDI data, then use the sounds within your software to play back your performance. You could also use external MIDI gear, such as controller keyboards, to play back the sounds within the NP-32. Please note that additional equipment such as MIDI interfaces may be required for this kind of operation.
Not only is the USB port another way to connect directly to computers but also allows you to connect to an iOS device for use with a range of apps from Yamaha that add even more creative fun and opportunities to learn. The Yamaha Piaggero NP-32 is a truly remarkable and easy to use portable piano for all.
