- The CFX Premium Grand Piano Voice recreates the power and tone of the flagship CFX concert grand piano from Yamaha.
- The Smart Pianist app not only gives you full control over your piano’s major functions, but also analyzes your favorite songs right out of your music library using chord tracker technology.
- GHS weighted action is heavier in the low keys and lighter in the high keys, just like an acoustic piano.
- 3 Piano-Style Pedals offer authentic sustain, sostenuto, and soft pedal performance.
- VRM (Virtual Resonance Modeling) Lite technology makes the sound more like that of a real acoustic piano by reproducing its sophisticated string resonance.
- Tone Escapement uses a long and narrow hole in the back of the piano to create a wide sound space.
- Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) automatically adjusts the EQ of the built-in stereo speaker system to the player’s setting, ensuring the richest tone at any volume level.
- Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spatial distribution of sound in the listener’s headphones, creating the sensation that sound is coming directly from the piano, rather than from the headphones.
- Volume Limiter lowers the overall volume of the instrument so that you can protect your hearing with or without headphones.
- 192-note polyphony allows you to play complex passages on your keyboard without any dropped notes.
- Duo mode splits the keyboard into two halves, each with their own “middle C” for practicing with a partner
- Dual Mode lets you combine two Voices together, like piano and strings, for an inspiring new playing experience.
- USB to HOST connectivity with MIDI and audio transfer means you only need one cable to connect to your music-making software.
