Product Description

Created as an affordable entry into the world of piano playing, the Arius series of digital pianos draw from Yamaha's decades of expertise building acoustic pianos -- resulting in digital instruments that are truly a joy to play. The Arius YDP-V240 delivers uncompromising grand piano sound and feel with a room-filling 40-watt speaker system. Thanks to Yamaha's Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) sampling system, the YDP-V240 gives you a world-class grand piano -- plus 491 more inspiring sounds, a library of 160 rhythm styles, and a bevy of useful tools for students and teachers. Best of all, the Graded Hammer Standard keybed delivers natural-feeling resistance as only a Yamaha instrument can.

Advanced Wave Memory for Greater Expression

To recreate the detailed, dynamic sound of a concert grand piano, Yamaha recorded each note at multiple volume levels. This expression comes through as you play your YDP-V240: the louder notes aren't just louder, they're more present and forceful; and softly played notes are more gentle and mellow. It's all designed to recreate the nuanced way that hammers hits the string inside an acoustic grand. AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling means that the Arius YDP-V240 reacts naturally and accurately to the velocity of your playing, as its 40-watt stereo speaker system faithfully recreates stereo grand pianos, classic electric pianos and organs, string ensembles, and over 100 more sounds to choose from. And of course, there's a headphone jack on the front -- so you can enjoy this instrument anytime.

Graded Hammer Standard Keybed for Believable Feel

Just as you'd expect from an acoustic piano, the Arius YPD-V240's 88-key keybed offers less resistance in the higher range, and more resistance in the lower octaves. Yamaha calls this their Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard, and it means that the YPD-V240's keys respond to your touch authentically just as an acoustic piano would. You can also adjust the keyboard's touch-sensitivity to hard, medium or soft to match your playing style or strength. Your YDP-V240 comes with a full complement of three piano-style foot pedals, with support for "half-pedaling" to adjust sustain length depending on how far the damper is pressed.

High-Tech Tools to Make Practice Fun

Go above and beyond the grand piano, and dig into a symphony of sounds with the YDP-V240's hundreds of built-in voices. Layer multiple sounds and split the keyboard. Add reverb, chorus, and more inspiring DSP effects. Jam along with 160 built-in rhythm styles. And record and play back your performances with the built-in 5-track recorder -- a useful tool for beginning students. Of course, the YDP-V240 gives you all sorts of high-tech tools that an acoustic piano can't -- like a built-in metronome, the ability to transpose the keyboard up to an octave up or down, and the Yamaha Education Suite (Y.E.S.) that lets you play along with well-known songs, slow them down to any tempo, and practice left- and right-hand parts independently while the YPD-V240 plays back the other hand's part. The YDP-V240 is more than just a digital piano -- it's your musical collaborator.

Product Description

The YDP-V240 is an entry-level ensemble digital piano with 88-note Graded Hammer Standard keyboard. The Graded Hammer Standard keyboard makes it a true joy to play, both in practice and in performance. The 3-level AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling Voices deliver remarkably authentic sound and furthermore, it incorporates a wide selection of amazingly realistic and dynamic sounds for hours of interactive music enjoyment.

Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard

Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, the keys of the lower notes have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The keyboard's sensitivity can even be adjusted to match your playing style. This Graded Hammer technology also enables the instrument to provide authentic touch in a lightweight instrument. The matte finish of the black keys enhances the keyboard's luxurious appearance.

Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling

The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) found on the Yamaha YDP-V240 is a sampling system which creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument and applying high-quality, digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.

Amazingly Realistic and Dynamic Sounds

Yamaha's highly acclaimed Sweet! and Cool! Voices deliver incredibly natural and very dynamic sound.

Digital Signal Processor (DSP)

237 types of the DSP effect can be added to the Main and Dual Voices. These range from reverb-like ambience effects to distortion and other dynamic processing tools that let you enhance the sound, or completely transform it.

Easy Song Arranger

In addition to each song's default style, you can select any other style to play the song with the Easy Song Arranger feature. This means that you can play a song that is normally a ballad, as a bossa nova, as a hip-hop tune, etc. You can create totally different arrangements by changing the style of a song. You can also change the song's melody Voice and the keyboard Voice for a complete change of image.

Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.)

Play along with a song on the instrument's keyboard and produce a perfect performance every time ... even if you play wrong notes! All you have to do is play on the keyboard, and you'll sound like a pro as long as you play in time with the music.

Music Database plus External Files

You want to play music in your favorite style, but you're not sure how to select the best Voice and style for the type of music you want to play ... simply select the appropriate style from the Music Database. The panel settings will automatically be adjusted for the ideal combination of sounds and style! Furthermore, this instrument allows Music Database files transferred from a computer or stored on a USB flash memory device. These files can be used in the same way as the internal Music Database.

USB To Device

The USB to Device port on the instrument allows you to connect USB memory devices such as flash drives or hard drives, enabling you to save or load registrations and user songs created on the instrument, as well as read data from the connected device such as MIDI files or style files.

USB to Host

Dive in and take advantage of the wide world of computer music software. Connections and setup are exceptionally easy, and you can play back your computer-recorded parts with different instrument sounds - all from a single instrument.
