Yamaha have incorporated Graded Hammer (GH) action across each key on the P-255. Therefore, lower keys are heavier to the touch and higher keys are lighter to the tough, making the playing experience as realistic as possible – in relation to acoustic concert pianos. This makes the P255 an excellent digital piano for those who are practicing or performing, and for whom an accurate playing experience in an absolute must.
SYNTHETIC IVORY KEYTOPS
Each white key features a synthetic ivory keytop, which has excellent moisture absorption properties. When you’re playing for extended periods of time, the keytops will prevent your fingers from slipping over or between keys, allowing rapid finger movement to flow seamlessly across the keys.
IMPRESSIVE SOUND QUALITY – PURE CF SOUND ENGINE
Yamaha have gone to great lengths to ensure the P-255 performs to the exacting standards of the most discerning of pianists. The Pure CF Sound Engine is responsible for accurately generating tones that reproduce the subtle intricacies of Yamaha’s concert grand pianos. Thanks to the 256 note polyphony, you need not worry about notes dropping-off or cutting out unintentionally, allowing complex harmonies to be played with utter confidence. A range of voices allow you to vary the sound output of the P-255 to meet your practicing and performance requirements including (amongst others): Grand Piano, Live Grand, Synth Piano, Jazz Organ, Harpsichord, Strings, Choir and Synth Pad.
At your fingertips lies a wide selection of built-in rhythm tracks, each one bringing greater depth to live performances with accompaniments across Pop, Jazz and Latin styles. The rhythm tracks enhance your playing experience whether you’re: a soloist, perform as part of a group, or simply wish to make practicing more fun.
The P-255 has built-in EQ controls, which allow you to adjust the sound output. This can be useful if you wish to change the output in relation to your environment, or even for creative purposes.
Sounds are projected through two built-in 15W speakers that deliver sounds with power and precision.
USB RECORDING AND PLAYBACK
Using the built-in USB drive, you can readily record and store your performances to a USB flash drive as full .wav audio files. Not only does this allow you to track and monitor your progress over time, but it makes transferring files over to Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) software much easier for recording and editing purposes or transferring to friends without having to compromise on sound quality.
COMPACT AND VERSATILE
Drawing from their many years of experience, Yamaha have gone to every effort to ensure that the P-255 offers the best value for money, without compromising on build quality. The stylish black finish of the P-255 makes it as beautiful as it is compact.
DEDICATED CONTROLLER APP
The P-255 is compatible with the free-to-download “P-255 Controller” app via your iPhone or iPad. A wide of functions can be controlled through the intuitive graphical user interface, such as adjusting settings and controls, and recording settings to be recalled at a later time. An Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter/iPad Camera Connection Kit or dedicated Yamaha cable such as the i-MX1/i-UX1 is required for connection
