The P255 is packed with features that will meet or exceed what you need from a digital piano.
Feels Like a Concert Grand
When producing the piano voices, the P255 utilizes Yamaha’s Pure CF Sound Engine. The P255 is the only piano in the P-Series to feature the following functions. Using these features, this piano mimics the acoustics found only on a grand piano.
Key-off Sampling – The key-off sampling mimics even the slightest sound alteration instantly when your finger comes off the keys. This feature even produces the legato and staccato sounds.
Sustain Sampling – The acoustic effect is recreated when the strings and soundboard resonate in response to the damper pedal. The Yamaha P255 even responds as a result of how deeply you push the damper pedal.
String Resonance – All the strings resonant when the grand piano’s hammer strikes the strings.
Great Features of the Yamaha P255
- Synthetic Ivory Keytops
The Graded Hammer action gives the piano a lighter feel when playing high keys and a heavier feel when playing the low keys. This makes it feel like you are playing a real grand piano. Also, white keys are topped with synthetic ivory that absorbs moisture very well. So, your finger will not slip even during extended practice or performance sessions.
- Meticulous Acoustic Design
The circle-shaped speakers produce a nice, rich tone because they vibrate naturally. Because of this design, the low notes feature a deeper, richer tone than on instruments that have oval-shaped speakers. The onboard tweeters face the performer directly so the high notes are clear and bright. The two built-in 15-watt amplifiers deliver a forceful sound.
- EQ Sliders
The Yamaha P-255 includes EQ sliders. There is a slider for each of the frequency ranges – high, middle, and low. When the pianist moves the sliders, the sound from the piano is adjusted to suit the likes of the musician or to sound better in the environment. With this feature, the musician can produce interesting tones that are immediate and clear or forceful tones that make a statement.
- Controller App for iOS
The Yamaha P255 has a Controller App available for the iPad or iPhone from the App Store. Using the App, the musician controls a wide range of options with a simple, touch-screen, user-friendly interface. When the pianist uses this visual method to configure the piano, it makes it even easier to use the included functions. Using the visual interface, you can select voices that you want to layer, change the point where you split your music, and organize the songs you have recorded to an external device. All of this can be completed with just one finger touch.
