Yamaha P-80
7 octaves.
A score of sounds.
64 note polyphony. There's the margin!
It is lighter and it plays.
Speakers and not so much the better. In this range, the amplifications are quite pitiful.

UTILIZATION

I dj an upright piano in the lounge, which is only part dsaccorder despite its mtallique. I was looking for a digital good prices for my home studio.
APRS moultes research and endless dithering, I could compare with Yamaha Casio: Whether the touch or the sound that is simply not comparable!
J'tais two fingers to a PX100 or PX200 when I came across this ... P80
And for 2 months is that happiness!

SOUNDS

Branch on a pair of PRO8, I turn on my fingers and play alone. The sound is trsraliste, well my del expectancy at a piano in 2000 ...
My sound prfre? bah the piano! (The sound is superb 1)
This instrument is an inspiration!

OVERALL OPINION

Lodges:
- Compact (I chti a home studio) I have set between two spaces Tagrera 12 cm. (The piano is sliding) as a result, connections latrales are perfect for my use: the rear would have taken the t compltement inaccessible!
- It is rather sober and class.
- The dual outputs + 2RCA 2JACK can connect both the sound card
Live and monitors to play without turning on the computer. Besides the two headphones.

- A catch (only) three digits and a fist sound: in short, the IDAL to devote most: PLAY!

The (LGERS) complaints:
- The Ides registered in the mini squenceur are not sent out in the south.
they must play again for the model: it must be to force the work INTERPRETATION!
- Certain meets harmonic mtaliques sound a bit (but really to quibble!)

The key is Submitted: a great piano sound with a great touch.
I would do so without hsiter this choice and I understand that its rating is so lve the new latest issue MODELS who replaced: he did not envy them.

Yamaha P-80
Mumérique Piano 88 keys (semi-weighted keys)

There's bought it five years.

UTILIZATION

In home studio and Live.

SOUNDS

Superb piano sound, every time I listen to Live (I lent to pianists, whether for jazz and even classical once), I was surprised every time rendering and sound ( the play of pianists have a lot to of course).

OVERALL OPINION

Now I have passed on to my sister who takes piano lessons at the music school of his city, as personal, I have a MIDI master keyboard and a Triton-rack me more than enough for what I do.

5 years, no worries for me, the piano responds and runs like new, I can only congratulate the robustness and the construction of these pianos Yamaha serious, as it often at home.

Let's hope it lasts at least another 5 years ...

Yamaha P-80
88-key hammer action "Graded Hammer" Yamaha which reproduces the natural feel of the piano.
12 sounds (4 acoustic pianos, two electric pianos, a harpsichord, a string ensemble, 3 organ, a bass) with variations.
It has several effects very subtle but very good (reverb, effects).
We can adjust the sensitivity / hardness of the keyboard.

Finally, it has all the connectors needed for professional use. Outputs stereo cinch / jack, headphone (x2), To Host, MIDI IN / OUT ....

UTILIZATION

It is a mechanical hammer, with Graded Hammer (hardness strikes the strings is attached).
This is probably the best I've ever hit ... I tried many keyboards in recent months to try to find the feel of a real piano, and I think those are the best Yamaha.

It has a small sequencer otherwise, which is handy to re-listen.

The general configuration is childish. It's really very simple. The only problem is the editing which is not very funny with the display 3 characters but it's still easy. The manual is well done, accessible. Really simple, and almost insulting when you come from the world of synths ... : P

SOUNDS

I think that's when I really cracked on the P80. In fact, I tried the new Yamaha CP33 that had really stuck with the quality of sound. And there is the same with the P80, which is older.

The sounds are very expressive and touching. And then you feel sympathetic strings, more than a pile of sounds. I do not know how to express it, but that's what a real piano ... The sounds are all in place and it sounds. The bass is beautiful, not acute n'aliasent.

The differences are relatively subtle differences between the two pianos (Grand Piano and Acoustic Piano). The grand piano has an opening and majesty of a typical grand piano where the sound is darker.

Hard to stop playing when you start.

There is also a setting that I find great brilliance, which is more than a filter.
For works such as "Moonlight Sonata" by Beethoven, I choose "Acoustic Piano" I put in "mellow" and the song goes into another world. Soft and darker.

For pieces more brilliant, faster, I prefer the Grand Piano more or less "bright", and it really changes the sound.

For other sounds, like bcp harpsichord, electric pianos are very good but make me think of the demos you hear in showrooms stores (you know the kind jazzy background music a little tartoche). .. In short, I have an expander, and bcp plugin which replaces the sounds ... But certainly not the pianos.

OVERALL OPINION

I tried many models, and some are better (RD700SX/RD300SX) but not in my price range.
The P80 is a great digital piano because the key is there: it really gives the impression of playing on a piano. I found the feeling anyway.

Yamaha P-80
Add 2-track recorder

UTILIZATION

Touch is gnial, switch between the acoustic piano MODEL dpayse do too much.
The configuration is very simple, the manual is prcis which is not uncommon in yamaha

SOUNDS

The trs are are good, just be from the low
As for the touch of Ractive trs I find good, we can make good grades, and the piano sounds are good trs. Similarly for the organ sounds or string ensemble.

OVERALL OPINION

This is my girlfriend who uses it for 5 months and really it's magic. She played forward on a yamaha acoustic, which also silent excellent too.
The report quality price seems good compared competition and given the quality of this product irrprochable.
I would do without this choice hsitation no.

Yamaha P-80
7 octaves 1 / 4 88-key hammer Hammer
24 sounds
rever, chorus ...

Standard connectivity

UTILIZATION

Excellent touch: the best in my opinion (with Kurzweil may be). Pianist if you find a better piano scne, let me know.
trs simple config
Basic MIDI config
manual never used

SOUNDS

Piano: EXCELLENT. The best piano sound on a piano scne I think by the sound of the P120 with a good amplifier? Well I like the sound Roland too. (See RD600)
Other sounds? oh yes it's true there are other sounds ... uh ... bof. The bass is good.
expressiveness (dynamics, sustain): TOP

OVERALL OPINION

Purchased 2003.
If you are looking for a PIANO scne laptop is the IDAL.
Warning: P80: no amplifibr /> P120: Amplifibr /> The p80 is designed to play the piano, 10/10 for that use, if you want a good keyboard with a good versatile sound library, buy a rather Roland RD700 or 600.

qualitprix excellent!
I would do the m choices hsiter

Note to Vince rponse:
Obviously a piano will never be comparable numrique an acoustic.
Obviously a pianist is the diffrence eyes closed.
But this is to compare what is comparable is that the P80 numriques.Et the other pianos, the p80 is undoubtedly of good quality trs.

Yamaha P-80
88 notes
12 sounds with variations, with a flat for piano and jazz and classic rock
but the grand piano is super
all are taken on the cot

UTILIZATION

Touch is very good for an electronic piano, it is heavier on the left to simulate the real piano

SOUNDS

The piano sound is very realistic with serious nettements superior to most of the true upright pianos
very easy to use
church organs are perfect

OVERALL OPINION

Certainly one of the best value for money (especially okaz).

Nico65's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha P-80
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 =)

UTILIZATION

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

SOUNDS

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; =)

OVERALL OPINION

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

Fred160656's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha P-80
88 keys, 12 sounds + direct variation (v) (4 + 4 (v) acoustic pianos, 2 + 1 (v) electric piano 1 (v) steel drum, 1 + 1 (v) harpsichord, a string (a (v) a delay (v), two organs, one positive, Jazz Organ 2 (v) changes the speed of the leslie) Acoustic Bass (with cymbal v)) patiellement ditables (resonance of the table for piano , brightness, effects).
There is also the posibilit to select two sounds at the same time allowing the effect interressants like Piano + Strings delayed (with the possibility of rgler the level of sound from the other
Effects: reverb (4 acoustic), delay, tremolo, chorus
Snsibilit possibility to change the keyboard depending on the game the pianist (hard, medium, soft and off)
I / O midi in / out, Analog Stereo, to host, two headphones, pedals Sustain
Only ENTSO no controller (pitch and modulation) that could make this a good piano keyboard control.

UTILIZATION

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.

SOUNDS

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)

OVERALL OPINION

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 !!!!!

SoulPedro's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha P-80
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

UTILIZATION

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

SOUNDS

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 ....

OVERALL OPINION

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 ...
