Integrated VCM Technology

The engineers at Yamaha, Japan have developed the YC61 using the Virtual Circuit Modeling technology (VCM) creating the exact behavior of all the transistors and resistors of the original tonewheel and drawbar circuits.

Developing these circuits to deliver a stage drawbar organ that produces a natural and perfectly emulated classic drawbar sound, capturing the real essence of traditional drawbar functions and feels.

The traditional and classic rotary speaker emulation and matching effects are included in the YC61, giving the performer more options and sonic capabilities when in the studio or on stage.

Each detail of the Yamaha YC61 tones can be manipulated and adjusted, letting the player create a wide range of sounds and expressions.

True Organ Ambience

The YC61 offers the player perfect tools for supporting the musician's performance. Installed into the YC61 is a waterfall keyboard, ngineered precisely and delivering the ideal amount of resistance for the ideal playing experience.

The drawbars have been designed to work for the player and be present when on stage with no difficulty when using and performing with them. They release the correct amount of haptic feedback and are partially transparent in colour so that the bright coloured LED indicators can be read with ease and independently of the drawbars.

The performer can see the current setup easily and clearly, and the position of the drawbars without any confusion in between.
