Yamaha YDP-161 overview

  • 1Description

The Yamaha YDP-161 Arius Digital Piano is an authentic sounding digital piano with an upright look, bench, built-in speakers and Yamaha's Graded Hammer (GH) keyboard for realistic piano feel. Lower notes on the GH keyboard have a heavier touch, while the higher notes are more responsive to lighter playing. Yamaha's Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) stereo sampling delivers incredibly realistic pianos with rich tone and detail. Soft, Sustain and Sostenuto pedals are featured, and a built-in headphone jack makes it easy to play in private. The YDP-161 Arius is an ideal solution for the home, house-of-worship, halls and more.

Graded Hammer (GH)
Just as on a traditional acoustic piano, lower notes on a GH keyboard have a heavier touch, while the higher ones are more responsive to lighter playing. GH features an extra key sensor capable of reproducing fast repetitive playing of a single note with perfect articulation.
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 up to 128 notes can be played at once.
Damper Resonance
Damper Resonance samples provide the rich and broadening tones produced in pedaling. Using these comprehensive gradations, YDP-161 model can realistically reproduce the complex sounds of a grand piano.
Half-Pedal Control
It allows the sustain length to vary "step-by-step" depending on how far the pedal is pressed. The further you press the pedal, the more the sound sustains.
Song Recorder
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.
