The Yamaha P80 is a full size electric piano with 88 weighted keys. It is easy enough to transport if you wanted to, and is big enough to provide you with the full flavor of a real piano without actually having one. It’s got all sorts of different sounds, but the grand piano ones are definitely the most realistic sounding. Other sounds that it has include electric piano, organs, harpsichord, strings, guitar, choir, and a number of others. It also has built in reverb and other effects, as well as a metronome and a couple of built in tracks including a demo.
If you’re familiar with the general make up found on electric pianos, you’ll definitely feel at home here. Nothing about the P80 is difficult to understand, as everything is pretty straight forward. Choosing the different sounds is as easy as hitting a button, as is the same with the built in reverb and other effects, which include chorus, a phaser, tremolo, and delay. You can also change the sensitively on the touch and transpose. I haven’t had a need to use the demo or the built in recording features, but certainly they are nice to have there just in case. The overall feel of the P80 is definitely realistic and is about as close as you’ll find to a real piano. A manual won’t be necessary to use most of the features, but if you’re looking to learn it inside and out, you might as well have it handy.
As I stated earlier, the grand piano sounds are definitely the most realistic sounding tones on the Yamaha P80, but I can’t complain too much about the way the other sounds come across. Some of them are a bit cheesy sounding, as is the case with the electric piano sounds, but others are pretty realistic like the harpsichord. The effects are nice to have, but I haven’t really used them other than the chorus. While the effects do sound pretty good, you don’t have any parameters for them, so what you hear is what you get…
The Yamaha P80 is a very solid electric piano. While you would think that this would be a bit cheap, I guess the real feel and body of the piano make it a bit more expensive. The price still isn’t too bad when you consider what the price of a real piano costs, but at the same time you could put together a better sounding collection of sounds on your computer with a MIDI controller for the price of the P80. Still, if you’re interested in a portable electric keyboard with a very good feel and sound, the P80 is fine choice.
88 keys, 12 sounds (4pianos acoustic, electric 2pianos, harpsichord, strings, organ, harmonium, organ, electronic) non ditables.
Effects: reverb (4 acoustic), delay, tremolo, chorus, fairly basic
I / O midi in / out, Analog Stereo, to host, two headphones, pedals Sustain
I Whereas the keyboard like a piano and electronic assigned the notes consquence
The touch keyboard is excellent (for an electronic keyboard) and allows me to work REALLY, for several hours (I use this keyboard as an alternative for my acoustic piano not GNER family and neighbors). Operation is simple. The practice is mtronome Intgr
The piano sounds including that of grand piano are really excellent and are the most ralistes I've heard this type of piano. The effects are of little use for these piano sounds. The term is really good, the effect of the pedals is perfect ....
APRS one year of use this keyboard gives me exactly what I expected: let me find a real touch and real piano sound in order to work in silence, without changing my fawn play.
I'd compare them before buying a Kurzweil and Roland m'taient infrieurs appeared well in terms of touch and piano sound (In contrast, the organ sounds of Kurzweil. ..)
The price quality ratio is excellent and it is cheaper than the "silent" on an acoustic piano, and offers the mobility and more ...

Only ENTSO no controller (pitch and modulation) that could make this a good piano keyboard control.
The touch of this piano is exceptional in the opinion of three of my friends are pianists really feel like play on an acoustic piano.
The configuration is simple gnrale, changing paramtres noon, split keyboard is much less and requires a careful reading of the record quite well done also.
Easy to use two-way sequencer unfortunately does not allow to export via the MIDI out.
The sounds are all usable and trs good bills (I regret that there have no longer used in Jazz Vibraphone the Steel Drums).
The sound palette ranges from classical (piano, strings, harpsichord, organ) at Jazz (electric piano (Rhodes, FM) Organ (Hammond), bass.
The effects are subtle and well-adjusted (the tremolo or chorus on Rhodes are perfect.
The play the piano as he Pernet excellent reproduce every nuance of the game especially through the MIDI (if you drive a sampler or virtual external Halion, Kontakt, GigaStudio)
We use (my son and I) this keyboard for the past 18 months, two of my friends are buying APRS pianists have to try at home.
The ASUS Update main criticism I do other keyboard of this type is especially trsmdiocre touch on some models (which include many more sounds pout) only to compete in this area is the Kawai MP 9000 .
If I had to buy a piano now my choice would be the new MODELS P 120 or P 120 S, which Yamaha has made amliorations, new sounds even more Ralite, but slightly more expensive .
A great choice !!!!!
88 keys hammer touch
some effect (although unnecessary, what)
intrssantes some functions, such as backup or not some Settings, volume mtronome ... all that is in use piano, which
4 effects of rverbration
MIDI in, out, to host
... It's nothing short of a synthtiseur is not the goal either
how it should turn on the P80 weekly to avoid losing rglages? what century they live at Yamaha? at the same time so I did not ssay; =) and then my K7S5A suffers from the same syndrome (the computer will understand), so it feels less alone =)
the mtronome Intgr is really welcome to work, and the volume is adjustable
the manual is clear. It is not used much, except to touch functions as a notch with 3 characters, it can no longer incomprhensible
touch is simply excellent, I say more? some say that the feel of the P80 is a bit too heavy, compared some acoustic pianos. I would like to know what they're talking about acoustic pianos, touch my Petrof 1 / 2 is much heavier (but not a REFERENCE, I know)
I found myself touching neither too heavy nor too lightweight. Training for a piano, a bit heavier ca t have even better, but I quibble. The P80 touch the heaviest of the market for pianos numriques, probably the most raliste too. Touch GH (keys heavier in the bass that AIGS) also works wonders
Only the piano interests me for the rest follow the advice of others. There are four pianos (grand, classical, jazz and rock), with a variation for each piano.
Trs frankly classical piano is average, it sounds too dull to be raliste (is it closed?). As for the piano rock, I do not see any acoustic piano can sound like that, trash. It remains the largest and jazz (and variations), both excellent
Some criticize the P80 sounded dull and distant. I play piano on a tail 1 / 2, I do not at all the distant sound. Mat, this dpend especially your system amplification. I had about the results and ways of HiFi headphones low-end, but with my Sennheiser HD200, the brightness of the sound is made raliste (especially since it is adjustable)
The effects of 4 rverbration, an adjustable level of 0 20, are good trs
I ssay to end the 64-note polyphony, without success: =) more than enough, so.
What is missing still numriques pianos is an option "open piano / half-open / fermquot; for piano line ...
The sound is so good with prcis Systm of costs, which I just make comparisons with an acoustic (which is pretty silly, I grant you). Well I found the excellent REPRESENTATIVES Stereo sound, cd we really feel that the strings of strikes are Agues right of our position. As against the Aiges are a little weak. Some affect / agreements sound a little dsaccord too. But still the quibble I; =)
The effect of sustain pedals is trsraliste my taste, except on tail Most recent internship piano notes do not touffoir because the strings are too small, which n ' REPRESENTATIVES is not here. Obviously it's a dtail
And for that matter it is a pity that we can not add or mute pedals, or pedals support. I did almost never used in 9 years of piano, but shame about same; =)
I had this weekend, but it is enough to rate a pertinant
I ssay the P60, which did not say more than that, with its 32-note polyphony and its clearly inferior
I was looking for a piano with the best feel possible, to train and play a little in my studio, I trouvbr /> Hit OK, its OK ... all OK
To finish off the gadgets: trs is also beautiful, with its red lupiottes and buttons positioned on a stand black against a white wall is ca trs "design / home studio", =)) Finally, it is solid with ca trs shell mtal immitation PVC (I test for you, he fell into the car ;=)). Obviously, do not do a crash test with either, hammers n'apprcieraient not, and the keyboard is absolutely not being protected, therefore it is the point to be careful in the dmnageant (if someone offers me a flight case ...; =))
Report qualitprix excellent, all fawn he better feel, then the choice is quickly made when it was my needs. One can only hsiter with P120, or choose to wait for the P90
