Yamaha YDP-181 overview

  • 1Description

The Yamaha YDP-181 Arius Home Digital Piano includes a bench, and features an authentic piano look and feel along with the convenience of 14 high-quality piano and instrument sounds, a 2-track recorder, and three pedals with half-damper effect. Yamaha's 88-key, GHS (Graded Hammer Standard) keybed produces a subtle increase in weight at the lower section of the keybed; much like an actual piano. The Touch button allows you to set the keyboard's response to your personal playing style, while 50 classic piano songs are provided in the song player and in the accompanying music book—making the YDP-181 a smart choice for enthusiasts, beginners, and professionals alike.

Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) Keyboard
Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, lower notes on a GHS keyboard have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. The matte finish of the black keys enhances the keyboard's luxurious appearance.
USB Connectivity for Storing and Playing Music
Insert an optional USB storage device into the USB port to save and transfer your performances.
Variable Touch Sensitivity
Select the hard, medium or soft setting to match your playing style or finger strength. Turn off sensitivity for a fixed response setting, ideal when playing the organ.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) Dynamic Stereo Sampling
The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates the realism of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expression.
128-Note Polyphony
Conventional digital pianos quickly run out of notes during fast, dense legato passages: sustained notes are cut off as the instrument "steals" notes to make room for new notes. A maximum of 128 notes can be played at once.
Half-Pedal Control
It allows the sustain length to vary "step-by-step" depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The farther you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains.
Song Recorder
The built-in, 2-track performance memory allows you to record a backing track, and then step into the spotlight and solo over it. Best of all, you can change tempo or voices even after you've recorded your performance. There's also a built-in metronome to help you stay in perfect time.
50 Preset Piano Songs
A selection of 50 different piano songs is provided for your listening pleasure. These recordings were chosen for their beauty as well as their functionality. Since many of the songs are classic piano pieces, anyone taking lessons can listen to them for reference.

    Yamaha YDP-181 reviews

    YDP-181 Arius Home Digital Piano with Bench is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is very nice. I bought this to go in my son's dorm at LSU. Most of the time he plays it using headphones, or at a very low volume. But there are times he can play it louder using the speakers. It sounds and plays very nice. His piano at home is an old Baldwin spinet, and the sound quality from the Yamaha is better than the spinet. The addition of the extra voices is a fun bonus. It was very simple to put together.
