The Yamaha EZ-200 lighted keyboard will have you or your favorite aspiring musician playing songs from the very first day. Just choose a song from the 100 songs built-in to the EZ-200 keyboard, select if you'd like to play the left or right hand part and hit "Start." The Yamaha EZ-200 keyboard will light up the key that you're supposed to play, the song will actually stop and wait for you to find the correct key! All of the tools you need to get started are found in the Yamaha EZ-200 keyboard, including how to play chords.
Expressive, Piano-like Touch
If you're buying a keyboard having piano in mind, you'll want Yamaha's touch response feature. On an acoustic piano, striking a key harder will produce a louder sound, and striking it softer will produce a softer sound. With Yamaha's "touch response" the EZ-200 keyboard responds like an acoustic piano.
Portable Grand Button
With the Yamaha EZ-200, you're never more than a button push away from the most realistic piano sound in portable keyboards today. One press of the Portable Grand button resets the entire EZ-200 keyboard to a stereo-sampled piano - perfect for when it's time to practice. Yamaha's attention to detail is evident as you enjoy the warmth and clarity of the EZ-200 Portable Grand piano features. And of course, the keyboard includes a Sustain Pedal jack on the back for practicing and playing piano pieces.
Learn to Play: Yamaha Education Suite
The Yamaha EZ-200 has 100 built-in songs for you to learn to play, using the Yamaha Education Suite. The songs are separated into left and right hand parts, providing 7 levels of lessons plus a convenient chord dictionary. In addition, the correct fingering is indicated in the LCD display on the Yamaha EZ-200.
General MIDI (GM) and XGlite compatible
The music pathway to your computer and the Internet is MIDI. It's the way that keyboards communicate with computers. And because the Yamaha EZ-200 is both General MIDI(GM) and XGlite compatible, you have access to thousands of MIDI song files on the Internet.
367 Voices and the One-Touch Setting
The Yamaha EZ-200 has 367 voices for you to choose from. For example, there are pianos, electric pianos, harpsichord, guitars, drums, bass, violins, brass and synthesizer voices. And if you don't know which sound goes with what style of music, the Yamaha EZ-200 keyboard can select an appropriate sound for you using the convenient one-touch Setting.
32 Note Polyphony and 16 Part Multi Timbrel
In electronic keyboards, the more sounds made at the same time - polyphony - the more memory is needed. More is always better, because too little polyphony can cause dropouts in dense passages of music. Some keyboards at this price point have only 12-note polyphony. The Yamaha EZ-200 has 32 notes of polyphony and will play back 16 different parts or sounds at once (16-part multi timbrel); enough for the most demanding needs.
Yamaha has long been a world leader in digital signal processing technology. In fact, Yamaha professional audio products are found in most professional recording studios around the world. The Yamaha EZ-200 takes full advantage of this know-how, giving you an extensive range of nine, top-quality reverb effects that simulate playing in everything from a small room to a large spacious concert hall; a first in this price range.
