    So unusable because, and I'll try not to write it in raging case, there is no way of didactic use, consistent, describing step by step all possible operations, and I have no doubt that are many. Unable to navigate the pretty little buttons adorning the facade. with exotic names, pre-amp, mod-fx, utility, etc ... Spliter is a nightmare, can not find the path to select a particular sound to the left or right. This is just one example ...
    I called Yamaha France, they sent me an email absolutely unnecessary, avoiding to answer the basic question: why are there no instructions worthy of the name?
    I was there last Thursday and I got nothing satisfactory, if not basically use the piano, finding each sound empirically.
    I'm not on the verge of hysterics, I'm in ...

    SOUNDS

    Effects, I'd find them ... So if, piano sounds a little weak ..

    With the experience I certainly do not do this election ... Otherwise, when you know how to use ç'est good value for money ...

  • Very good stage piano

    Yamaha CP50Published on 12/08/12 at 02:43
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    The CP50 is well suited for use scenic, number of knobs to adjust the settings, a lot of sounds in addition to the piano, it makes it quite versatile.

    UTILIZATION

    Touch is very good, the instrument still a need grip, with many settings you can adjust its sounds very precisely. EQ effects.

    SOUNDS

    The piano sound is dynamic and homogeneous, we can all play with, we can blame him for a lack of character and looping a bit short but in case it is very convincing. Rhodes sound lacks a little presence must be compensated with the effects and simulating preamp ditto for wurly.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a very good intrument, a tool well suited malgrès few default.

  • Excellent keyboard

    Yamaha CP50Published on 04/23/12 at 08:22
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I had this keyboard for a year and it is very good (I have a Nord Stage EX to compare). I sold it because too heavy to move.
    Very good rhythm to lead, too bad we can record a track in the sequence.
    The piano sound is good, different from Clavia, more subtle pieces of calm, at least nice harmonics with the pedal, but it is mostly a matter of taste. The rhodes sound is also different
    The touch is heavier than the Clavia what is right to build muscles the fingers, it takes some bad habits with the Clavia!

  • Good keyboard 88 notes, Q / P excellent

    Yamaha CP50Published on 01/08/12 at 07:06
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    The features of this keyboard YAMAHA 88 notes are widely described in the manufacturer's website. It comes with a FC3 sustain pedal jack (stereo) and Cubase AI 5.
    Side computer links, there are MIDI and USB.
    MIDI performances are very complete (can split the keyboard into four distinct zones, and transmit on MIDI channel 4, indispensable function for controlling synthesizers or sound modules on stage from the CP50)

    UTILIZATION

    I bought this keyboard mainly for the quality of his touch, as well as extensive MIDI functions, primarily because I need a master keyboard 88-key hammer to replace my old (25 years!) Yamaha KX88 on stage. The latter, although still operating as the first......

    MIDI performances are very complete (can split the keyboard into four distinct zones, and transmit on MIDI channel 4, indispensable function for controlling synthesizers or sound modules on stage from the CP50)

    UTILIZATION

    I bought this keyboard mainly for the quality of his touch, as well as extensive MIDI functions, primarily because I need a master keyboard 88-key hammer to replace my old (25 years!) Yamaha KX88 on stage. The latter, although still operating as the first day is heavy and cumbersome, outdated and technically on two key issues: the dynamics and touch "piano".
    If the CP50 piano is very good, the other sounds are well below. I use Kurzweil synths (K2600/K2661) on stage, whose sounds are incomparable in both acoustic instruments for sound synthesis, having, in addition to a master keyboard class, a piano well made in the CP50 is a plus, but when we have Kurzweil synthesizers, it is not necessary.
    The logic of setting the CP50 and the manual is somewhat confusing, but you get done quickly, because the possibilities are actually few in number (compared to a synthesizer).
    I have not tested the functions for creating or editing pieces using CUBASE AI 5, my first priority is the game live on stage.

    SOUNDS

    As mentioned earlier, is primarily the sound of acoustic piano that makes the value of CP50, and Margin certain kinds Rhodes electric pianos, the rest is anecdotal.
    The expressiveness of the keyboard, due to the quality of Graded Hammer system is very good, that's why I bought it. It is comparable to the Yamaha S90 ES that I have too, but that is too fragile and bulky for the stage. It is much better than my KX88, which I keep because it is indestructible.
    The effects are subtle but limited, nothing to do with a multi-effect type KDFX Kurzweil.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The CP50 is above all a master keyboard ideal for use on stage beside sound, except for the piano sound, it can not compete with real synths like the Kurzweil K2600. The CP50 (excellent keyboard sounds limited) and K2600 (keyboard very average, varied and excellent sound) complement it very well, so I bought the CP50 after trying lots of models for a keyboard heavy touch of quality.
    Its ratio Q / P is interesting, especially if you go to a French discount store based in Valencia. The reliability is legendary Yamaha keyboards (my KX88 in 1985, he saw all the colors!) And CP50 comes with a 3 year warranty.
    It's a choice I do not regret.

  • One of the best

    Yamaha CP50Published on 10/08/11 at 15:03
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    See the Yamaha website

    UTILIZATION

    The keyboard is quite nice
    But I wanted a lighter touch on the firmer pianissimo and fortissimo on the way I feel right on my piano (sometimes I feel the opposite on the CP50)
    I also find that the difference in weight of the keys is not as important as on my piano, though I found the default on all digital pianos I've tried (except AvantGrand!)
    As against the keyboard is ultra dynamic, it responds with extraordinary velocity (this is the first time I have such a mastery under the fingers at the beginning it made me funny!) (Well I ' it had still been trying the V-piano was like a madman with this unit)
    The manual is quite clear

    The manual is quite clear
    At first selection logic sounds of CP50 is quite confusing (though I'm not really a ball and it took me several days to understand) it is true that I had been much accustomed to Roland with their handy knob
    Once we understand the logic of the menus everything is going pretty well

    SOUNDS

    The piano sound seems very good if not ultra-realistic
    I love the stamp Yamaha very airy and pure, especially this one
    Not everything is idyllic: the layer of the lowest velocity is quite high up so the pianissimos are quite limited, the sound is still artificial (well not so much ugly as Roland (Roland, however, is technically a step up) )
    However the dynamics are fantastic, the main strength with the beauty of his

    There are plenty of other sounds for fun and full of effects that I find very good (especially the chorus which sublimate certain sounds)
    I want to say that the sounds that have no breaks velocities (SCM) are piano, CP80, the Rhodes and Wurly. The type DX7 electric pianos are normal samples (which do not prevent them to be absolutely sublime and captivating)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Title I wanted to write "the least bad" but it's a little guy not too happy with his unit.
    But I can not say that my camera is perfect
    I have tried many models (the furniture of all brands (even Kawai and yet it's really not easy !!!). I am fortunate to live near Lyon, so I even had the honor to try the Yamaha N3 and N1 (in my opinion it's not worth even a real piano but it's still excellent!)
    Here are some comments very quickly to other portable models:
    - Yamaha P155: piano sound a little behind compared to CP50, I hear digital artifacts related surely stretching and looping samples, however the P155 low velocities are more manageable than the CP50, if not exactly the same keyboard
    - Yamaha CP5: keyboard too light and unweighted
    - Roland FP7F: the piano sound does not please me but it's very subjective
    - Roland RD700NX: same piano sounds that FP7F
    - Roland V-Piano: a cheap and piano sound completely natural, but not better than RD700NX. The keyboard is very nice (better than RD700NX) but not the feel of an acoustic piano, yet this is not a requirement to have a keyboard that exactly reproduces the feel of an acoustic
    - Korg SP and SV: To my ears it's not worth sampling Yamaha but still not bad
    - Casio: quality did not seem at Roland, Korg and Yamaha, but it's certainly very reliable over time
    - Kawai: excellent keyboard effectively (but not the equivalent of a sound!), However, the sampling is less enchanting than Yamaha (to my ears) but very good nonetheless


    I can say that the CP50 is one that seems to me to offer the best compromise (a digital piano is not worth even a real piano, let alone a portable piano)

    Piano digital modeling and synthesis AWM expensive Yamaha.
    88 keys, keyboard "graded hammer" formidable precision, a small notch below its bigger brothers, with a touch "synthetic ivory" super comfortable, but a keyboard knows them as Yamaha or Kawai, quite impressive for a pianist, there are feelings that we could not feel before. Input output noon, USB port, stereo output (jack), headphone, foot "pianoforte", which runs perfectly halves pedals .... Serious machine, simple finish, it feels sturdy, good for the scene ...

    UTILIZATION

    A very nice touch, fearful of a digital precision, it can play Debussy, offer a full range of grades necessary for the performance of a Beethoven sonata, a Chopin nocturne .... The keyboard is there for something, obviously, but the principle of modeling is no stranger to this feeling of happiness keyboard, the nuances, all the subtleties of the game, there was more that feeling of "saucissonage" no velocity of 127 that was with pianos to sample traditional ... And that CP1 is even better ... But there is already great ... Piano completely addictive ...

    SOUNDS

    The factory sounds are superb, both acoustic piano, electric than ... With a homecoming for Yamaha, mind-blowing sounds of our old DX7, so all tines Electric, DX7 ep, I could go on ... And all without the breath ... Pretty organs, 2 or 3 extra pads, ... When we superimpose all this happiness guaranteed!
    The strings are okay, nothing more, but this machine is oriented pianist, and she is divinely ... The only ergonomic HICS are: logic belongs to Yamaha Yamaha, read the leaflet, digest pdf files delivered on DVD (with cubase AI5), once overcome these adventures without difficulties grabdes Moreover, we appreciate a lot of little discoveries thoughtful. Oh this acoustic piano, Fabulous ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    Bought only two days ago, over 24 hours non-stop, just for fun ... I have compared in situ with the RD700, FP7, North Piano, MP5/MP8, the SV1 among others, and all these machines are very beautiful animals, very nice instruments, but my culture "sound" m ' did fall for this one, the expressiveness that can give his game is incredible, so we get closer REALLY disturbing the piano called "leisure" type U1 Yamaha ... Modeling is a step forward in this type of machine, the sound will never compare with a grand piano because all the piano when we play live on it you are at the heart of his, one feels it with all our body, but if you are a pianist, no matter the style, I can assure you that you have with the CP50, a companion scene, work, leisure remarkable in every way, the kind of instrument that tells us just play with me ... My wife is already jealous .... The price is almost laughable in light of services rendered ... Try ...

    88-key keyboard. Many sounds and editable effects. Can connect usb midi sequences for reading (only 1 track) and play wav file. Some non-editable drum patterns and non-recordable noon. Fc3 pedal. no desk.

    UTILIZATION

    The keyboard is very powerful. Touch of a real piano. The setup is a little complex at first but the manual is clear (manual + 2 pdf files). It is impossible to record even more tracks via a computer containing different sounds. Only 1 or 2 tracks on the same channel in split mode.

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are excellent. The acoustic piano is different from the usual piano Yamaha somewhat synthetic or too bright after calibration velocities (in this price range). Here we are close to a real acoustic piano with its subtleties and in particular the possibility to qualify easily. Resonance (superb) and the depth of the sustain pedal is editable. However, it lacks the resonance of the strings out of sympathy. But this criterion is not really useful for a stage piano which is looking more to eliminate small residual noise and sound that pollute more than they bedecked. Having had the opportunity to test a Northern piano (with sympathetic resonances), it is true that the piano sound is stunning on first listen but they get tired quickly because too pure and crystalline.
    Other sounds of Yamaha are up to, including electric piano and strings.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this piano for 3 weeks and although it is far from a real acoustic piano, it gives me great pleasure. I had a P140 before that that brought me disappointment. (Same for the P155 Roland FP7 or I could try).
    Too bad he's only two multi-timbral sounds and we have no access to the kits to save battery sequences.
    I recommend this keyboard.
