The Yamaha P250 incorporates an incredibly accurate reproduction of the sound and touch of an acoustic piano. Proprietary Dynamic Stereo Sampling (DSS) features three Yamaha CFIIIS grand piano stereo samples taken at various levels from loud to soft, for dynamic selection according to the user’s touch. The result is a delicacy of tone and expression that is virtually indistinguishable from an acoustic instrument. String resonance, sustain and soundboard samples emulate the reaction between different notes, giving the P250 an even more richly detailed sound. The 88-key Graded Hammer (GH) action simulates the feeling of an acoustic piano keyboard, where the lower-pitched keys are heavier to the touch and the upper-range keys are lighter.
A generous 128 notes of polyphony provide enhanced layering of voices and sounds. Up to 38 stereo-sampled voices are available from the front panel, and General MIDI (GM) plus XG offers an additional 480 XG voices. Different voices may be selected for the left- and right-hand in “Split” mode; any two voices may be combined in “Layered” mode.
A 16-track song recorder allows users to record their performances, then play along, overdub additional voices or save them to the internal FLASH ROM. The Yamaha P250 also features onboard digital reverb and effects, plus Enhanced Performance Memories which will store program changes and volume settings for external MIDI gear. In addition, the Performance Mode and Mod Wheels allow the P250 act as the controller for controlling professional MIDI setups.
