Yamaha stage pianos traditionally stand out for their comprehensive selection of flexible, high-quality sounds. Classical pianists rejoice in the sampled reproductions of two outstanding, world-renowned grand pianos, among others: Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial. A Yamaha U1 upright piano is part of the library, too.

Intuitive User Interface
The Yamaha CP88 features one knob settings that allow you to fine tune synth parameters with one touch. Yamaha's focus on an intuitive, hassle-free live performance workflow is evident in the control pattern, linking every element on the instrument’s surface to exactly one function under the hood. There is no navigating of menus and submenus, every function can be controlled directly – a great advantage when adjustments need to be made quickly, reliably and intuitively in hectic live situations.

Seamless Sound Switching allows for changing to a different sound while played notes still fade out. A song’s final chord can still slowly ebb away, while the sound required for the next song is already loaded up. Just one of many new additions to the CP series that lend it perfectly for the live stage!
