Yamaha YC61 Stage Keyboard

Designed for gigging keyboardists, the Yamaha YC61 features the Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) Organ engine with physical drawbars, extensive real time control and authentic Acoustic/Electric Piano and FM synth sounds.

Yamaha YC61 - Overview:


Sound

How do you reproduce the warm, authentic sound of an organ in a compact stage keyboard? You build an organ engine the Yamaha way, from the ground up. Yamaha's proprietary Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) recreates the circuits of vintage analog EQs, compressors and phasers right down to the transistors and resistors to capture the subtleties other digital simulations can't. Whether you're playing grand piano, upright piano, electric piano or more, YC61 gives you authentic keyboard sounds for any genre of music.

VCM Organ

Yamaha puts your favorite classic organ sounds in one powerful, compact stage keyboard. YC61 models three organ vintages - just out of the box, well-traveled and character-rich vintage. Need more? Go under the hood to adjust key click, leakage, rotary speaker speed and more to get the one-of-a-kind organ tone you've been searching for.

VCM Rotary Speaker

YC61 brings you the authentic sounds of classic rotary speakers with no maintenance required. Choose from two faithfully modeled rotary speaker profiles - clean and full or dirty and aggressive - and adjust top or bottom rotor speed for total control.

VCM Effects

VCM re-creates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors by modeling the circuits down to the original analog component level.

FM Organ

In 1983, Yamaha introduced the iconic sounds of FM (Frequency Modulation) synthesis to the world with the launch of the DX7. Now YC61 brings FM synthesis to the organ for a new generation of players. Simply switch to FM Organ and your drawbars control 8 FM Operators that send a pure sound with massive low end. Add rotary speaker or amp sim effects for character and vibe. Intuitive controls make it easy to discover new sounds. Or recreate classic transistor organ tones from warm to reedy to buzzy by choosing one of three popular FM Organ modes.

Premium Acoustic Pianos

YC61 features two premium concert grand pianos: the Yamaha CFX and Yamaha S700. These pianos provide full dynamic expression and nuance through meticulous recording and voicing.

CFX
With over 17 years of development, CFX is Yamaha's flagship 9' concert grand piano. The CFX engine offers sparkling highs, powerful bass with incredible dynamic range and the strength to project over a full symphony orchestra.

S700
The S700 is a handcrafted acoustic grand piano built by Yamaha master artisans. It has the power to cut through dense arrangements while remaining delicate and expressive in solo and sparse settings. The S700 was one of the most popular grand piano Voices from the S90ES stage synthesizer and MOTIF ES music production synthesizer.

C7
The Yamaha C7 is one of the most-recorded pianos in the world and known for being able to cut through a mix with power and clarity.

U1
The U1 is the most popular upright piano in the world. The YC61 U1 Voice features a vintage, well-used character. This makes it perfect for any music needing the vibe and sound of an authentic upright piano.

Electric Pianos

Powered by the same technology that made the DX7 famous, YC61 features real 8 Operator FM synthesis for full dynamic and expression that can't be reproduced with samples.

Yamaha CP80
Yamaha introduced the CP80 and CP70 electric grand pianos in 1978 to give musicians great grand piano sound that could cut through a live band. The CP80 sound on the YC61 is powerful and fat with wide, dynamic range.

78 Rd
The 78 Rd tine electric piano has wide dynamic range, high quality and is great for FX. Suitable for all genres of music.

75 Rd Funky
75 Rd has a dirtier,"funkier" tine electric piano sound, great for music requiring vibe and character.

73 Rd
73 Rd has a vintage, fat and warm tine electric piano sound perfect for ballads and accompanying singers.

Wr
The Wr reed electric piano Voice offers vintage and modern versions with wide dynamic range.

Touch

With a totally redesigned waterfall keyboard and the perfect action, the YC61 feels the way an authentic organ was meant to feel.

Waterfall Keyboard

The Waterfall keyboard on the YC61 is the result of painstaking traditional organ keyboards research refined with feedback from top keyboard artists. The result is an authentic keyboard action designed to accommodate organ technique and expressive acoustic and electric pianos, synth leads, brass sections and more.

Design

YC61 isn't just designed to be played. It's made to be bumped, jostled, scratched, crammed in a van, stuffed in an overhead bin and adored by players and fans, gig after gig. In short, it's built to last, like the company that stands behind it.

Drawbars

The nine drawbars on the YC61 have the footages and ratcheting you expect in an organ. But there's more to these drawbars than meets the eye. See-through drawbar stops with customizable LED light color make it easy to see differences between simulated upper and lower configurations and play in split mode. It's like having a virtual set of drawbars to give you more sounds, more flexibility and more choices than you ever thought possible in a compact stage keyboard.

Sound Control

YC61 is made for long jams, not long menus. The intuitive interface gives you fast and easy splits, layers and sound-shaping directly from the front panel.

Mobility

YC61 weighs an amazing 15 pounds, 10 oz. (7.1 kg). Which means it's compact and light enough for you to be your own roadie, but with a sound that players who can afford roadies will appreciate.

Soft Case

Before you rock, roll. YC61 is available with a premium soft case, featuring zippered compartments for storing pedals and other accessories.

Computer/iOS

YC61 features a built-in USB stereo audio and MIDI interface for Mac, PC and iOS. With a single USB cable, you can record the YC61 audio and MIDI to a DAW and play and monitor virtual instruments.
