Yamaha’s Next-gen Smart Digital Piano
One of the highlights of the PS500 that makes it a perfect home piano is Yamaha’s innovative Stream Lights feature. Not an accomplished pianist? Have youngsters in the house? Stream Lights makes it easy and rewarding for budding musicians to play as they learn, with four LED lights above each key that show them which notes to play and when to play them. As the lights move toward the keys (Flow Key), they intuitively guide you by showing the timing of the next note in the song, helping you to learn your favorite songs quickly and enjoyably.
The PS500 is also compatible with Yamaha’s dedicated Smart Pianist app, which adds a gorgeous graphical interface and a plethora of intriguing features. Smart Pianist gives you full control over the PS500’s main functions. It also analyzes your favorite songs in your smart device’s music library using Audio to Score chord tracker technology to produce a piano score, making it easy for you to learn how to play your favorite songs. Music students and family members will be inspired by the PS500 as it transcribes their favorite songs into sheet music!
Virtual Resonance Modeling
Yamaha has been building acoustic pianos since 1900 and the company has been on the cutting edge of digital technology for decades. Under the hood of the PS500 are proprietary digital audio technologies such as Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM), which meticulously models the infinite number of factors that create the sound of a concert grand piano to impart vivid and richly varied expression to your music. Onboard the PS500 are Yamaha’s meticulous samples of their flagship CFX as well as the famous Bösendorfer Imperial — bringing two of the world's finest and most renowned concert grand pianos to your fingertips.
Packed with advanced technology
From the authentic feel of Yamaha’s premium GHS action — which employs matte black keys that wick away moisture and is progressively weighted to be heavier in the bass register and lighter in the treble range — to the advanced technology under the hood, the Yamaha PS500 Smart Digital Piano is a marvel of the modern age. While its high-tech Touch Control panel lets you immediately access a selection of Voices, Styles, and Lessons, connecting the PS500 to Smart Pianist will unlock all of its capabilities, opening the floodgates to hundreds of Voices, Styles, and Lessons. You’ll also have control over Voice Layers, Splits, and Split Points, and Reverbs, as well as MIDI and Audio Recording.
Karaoke with pro background singers
Plug a microphone into the Yamaha PS500’s mic input and sing along with your playing — you’ll hear your vocal through the onboard speakers and you can record your performance to USB memory. Yamaha's onboard VH (Vocal Harmony) audio processing engine even adds professional-quality background vocal harmonies to your masterpiece! With its classic piano cabinetry and Touch Control panel that disappears when not in use, the PS500 elegantly integrates into the decor of any room. Pianists and keyboardists at Irvine Art & Music are ecstatic over this magnificent instrument. You will be, too!
