    Yamaha CP300 88-Key Digital Piano Product Description

    The Yamaha CP300 digital piano represents decades of technology and experience distilled into a brilliant instrument.

    In 1976, Yamaha released the first of the CP series stage pianos. These 'electric grands' became instant classics with their authentic sound and live performance convenience. Thirty years later, Yamaha celebrates those milestone keyboards by unveiling the latest and greatest in the CP series: the CP300. Drawing on their rich tradition and experience, this instrument gives the live performer all the sound and expressiveness of a superbly mic'd grand piano with the portability and versatility of a modern digital instrument.

    Features:

    - 88-key Graded Hammer keyboard with authentic touch
    - State-of-the-art AWM tone generation system
    - Maximum polyphony of 128 notes
    - 50 original Voices, plus 480 XG Voices and 12 Drum Kits
    - Five-band Master EQ, with panel sliders
    - Reverb, Chorus and other effects, including Delay, Rotary Speaker and Auto Wah
    - Comprehensive MIDI functions
    - Four pedal connectors for maximum expression, and full set of real-time controllers -- including sliders and Pitch Bend/Modulation wheels
    - Built-in high-quality stereo speaker system
    - A powerful Performance mode for storing and recalling your custom CP300 settings
    - Built-in 16-track sequencer for recording
    - Master mode, for independent control of up to four external tone generators
    - Balanced XLR outputs
    - USB terminal -- letting you connect to a computer for recording of your performances, creating/arranging of songs, and converting to notation

    Made to be played

    Like all fine instruments, the CP series keyboards simply beg to be played. Sit down with one, and the instrument becomes an extension of your hands and your musical imagination. The authentic piano voices and rich expressiveness come alive at your touch, and the sound is big enough to blast through a full band onstage -- yet nuanced enough to work magic in an intimate club.

    Expressive Power

    Yamaha's extensive experience in crafting fine acoustic pianos helps us in creating the ultimate digital pianos. Our advanced Graded Hammer Effect (GHE) action gives all keys an authentic resistance that increases from the top register to the lower -- just as on an actual acoustic piano. Which means that you can naturally pound out thunderous low notes with your left hand and let the fingers on your right dance and fly with the high notes. This keyboard practically plays itself, working with you -- not against you -- and brings out the very best in your performance.

    Sound choice

    Crafting the authentic sound of the CP series involved extraordinary attention to detail. We used meticulously recorded stereo samples of top-quality instruments, taken at various playing strengths, and included subtle elements such as String Resonance (harmonic overtones), Stereo Sustain (open strings while pedaling), and even Key-Off Samples (recordings of felt dampers coming to rest on vibrating piano strings) -- providing the most authentic sounding and finely nuanced acoustic piano voices possible. There's also a wide variety of other dynamic sounds, including vintage electric piano, organ, guitar, strings, and much more.

    Stay in control

    As master keyboard controllers, the CP300 stage piano lets you take full command of your gear. Play and control external synthesizers and tone generators (such as the Motif-Rack ES) during your performance. Assign different internal voices to different sections of the keyboard or even create complex, multi-textured layers of sound. There are four instrument Zones on the CP300 with 4 dedicated Zone sliders on the panel that let you easily tweak the level of each instrument as you play. You can also freely reassign the sliders and wheels to control other sonic characteristics of the connected gear as desired, such as sound attack, decay, brightness and filter cutoff.

    Take center stage

    Step out front and make your presence known. The CP series has a special Mono Piano sound, complete with a compression effect, designed specifically for live performance. It has the punch and power to stand out, even in full band situations.

    Lock it up

    Onstage, you need to make sure everything goes smoothly. Sometimes an errant hand (yours or someone else's) can touch the panel controls and change your special settings, giving you a rude surprise in the middle of your performance. The Panel Lock button lets you prevent that, keeping all settings fixed and secure, until you're ready to change them yourself.

    Pro-quality outputs

    The CP300 features professional quality balanced XLR output connectors. These give you the cleanest, clearest noise-free signal -- both for serious recording in the studio, and playing onstage where long unbalanced cables may compromise your sound.

    Hear yourself

    A built-in stereo speaker system on the CP300 lets you hear the sound of the keyboard without the need for setting up a separate monitor. Just bring the CP300 onstage and you're ready to perform! A convenient Speaker On/Off panel button lets you disable it and leave the monitoring levels to your soundman.

    Pedal to the Metal

    The CP series keyboards give you the same pedal control as an actual grand piano. Sustain, Soft and Sostenuto jacks are available on the CP300. On certain piano sounds, Sustain can be partially applied -- reproducing the "half-damper" effect of slightly muting the resonating strings on a real piano. The CP300 also has an fourth pedal input that can be used for controlling a variety of sound settings, such as Reverb or Chorus level, or the brightness of the sound.
