News Yamaha CP1

Yamaha introduced a redesigned lineup of CP Series Stage Pianos at Winter NAMM 2010, which let keyboard players fully express their passion for playing.

With the new CP series, which includes the CP1, CP5 and CP50, Yamaha says it has “redefined the expectations of what the ultimate stage piano should be.”

Beneath the hood of the CP1, which features new NW-STAGE weighted wooden keys, Spectral Component Modeling tone generation technology recreates the sounds and nuances of 17 Yamaha acoustic and vintage electronic pianos, including the CFIIIS, S6B, the CP80, Rd1, Rd II, Wr and the DX7.

This new Spectrum Component Modeling system replicates the instrument’s physical components, including the hardness of the hammers, resonance of the sound board and the striking position of the hammers. It also relies on granular parametric data that translates every nuance of the player’s touch into an expressive tone, according to the manufacturer.

The new CP models also use Virtual Circuit Modeling to replicate the effect units, amplifiers, compressors, EQ and other equipment that were so essential in creating many of those legendary vintage sounds.

All of the CP models feature 88 keys, retro looks, 128-note polyphony and USB-to-Host and USB-to-Device connectivity.

Pricing & Availability
The CP1 (MSRP: $5,999) is expected to ship in January 2010. The CP5 (MSRP: $3,299) and CP50 (MSRP: $2,199) are expected to ship in April 2010.
