Diverse Sound Engines

A true virtuoso in versatility - the YC73 features a wide range of premium keyboard sounds, from authentic Yamaha grand/upright pianos to tonewheel organ with rotary

Including three FM organ models and various iconic FM e-piano sounds, the built-in 8-Operator FM engine adds a versatile touch to this already capable keyboard.

Complete with built-in proprietary Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology, analog circuitry is replicated to deliver incredibly authentic simulations of EQ's, compressors and phasers like no other stage keyboard can.
