Even the sound system has been upgraded with more powerful 15 watt amplifiers and upgraded speakers.
Graded Hammer (GH) action with Synthetic Ivory keytops
This is Yamaha’s premier digital piano action, featuring heavier touch in the low end and lighter touch in the high end, plus excellent key stability, response & repetition. Synthetic Ivory keytops give a tactile surface to the white keys making them easy to “grip”
Pure CF Sound Engine
Meticulously sampled from Yamaha’s acclaimed CFIIIS concert grand, the Pure CF Sound Engine provides the tone of a 9′ concert grand piano. Sustain & Key-off samples along with Damper & String Resonance add depth & detail to the sound for excellent piano tone.
Live Music Toolbox
Adapt your sound to any situation with a suite of features like an easy-access, 3-band EQ. Sound Boost combines dynamic processing & EQ to make you louder in the mix. Finally, Speaker Control allows you to turn the internal speakers on or off for flexibility in different playing situations.
P-255 Controller app
A rich, graphic, touchscreen interface for your digital piano! Store & recall your favorite effect, Dual & Split keyboard settings. Record and playback your MIDI & Audio songs on optional USB flash drives. Adjust piano settings like String Resonance, Sustain Samples, Key-off Samples & Damper Resonance. Handy for live performances, this app also allows you to Select Drum Rhythms by name, control sections (Intro, Main & ending) & tempo. For dealers, this free app acts as a digital brochure with audio demos for each Voice.
