The Actual sounds of a Concert Grand Piano
Just like high-grade digital pianos, the YDP-323 uses Yamaha's renowned AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation technology and Stereo Sampling. When you play a key, what you hear is a "sample", or digital recording, of the same note on a high quality concert grand piano. This exceptionally realistic, natural acoustic sound makes the YDP-323 ideal for children learning the piano.

GH Keyboard for Exceptionally Realistic touch
Besides outstanding sound, the YDP-323 offers incredibly natural touch. Applying the know-how gleaned from over 100 years of crafting fine acoustic pianos, Yamaha created the highly acclaimed GH (Graded Hammer effect) keyboard. Unlike conventional digital piano keyboards that use springs or dampers to simulate piano feel, the GH keyboard uses weights and mechanical linkages to provide a new level of realism. You'll notice the difference it makes as soon as you start playing.

Beautiful, Lightweight, and Maintenance-free
The classically beautiful woodgrain body, with sliding key cover to protect the keyboard from dust, matches any decor perfectly. What's more, the YDP-323 is lightweight so it's easy to move. Best of all, it's maintenance-free: there's no need for expensive, periodic tuning or other special maintenance.

Three Pedals
To let you enjoy more expressive performances, the YDP-323 also features Damper, Soft and Sostenuto pedals.

Wide Selection of Voices
For even more performance versatility the YDP-323 offers a choice of 10 voices including electric piano, organ, strings and harpsichord.

Built-in Piano Music Library
The Yamaha YDP-323 comes with a built-in music library of 50 popular piano pieces. When practicing, you can learn one hand at a time, playing either the right or left hand part while the keyboard plays the other. Naturally, you can also listen as the YDP-323 plays the parts for both hands. It's just like having a teacher with you.

The built-in, 1-track performance memory allows you to record a backing track, and then step into the spotlight and solo over it. Best of all, you can change tempo or voices even after you've recorded your performances. There's also a built-in metronome to help you stay in perfect time.

Digital Reverb
The built-in digital reverb simulates reverberation to add more depth and life to your music. Choose from two different hall sizes, a medium-size room, or on-stage ambience.

Dual Mode
This lets you combine and play two voices together. Try strings and piano. Play staccato, and you just hear the piano voice. Play legato, and the strings come in to add extra depth and richness.

Variable Touch Sensitivity
Select the hard, medium or soft setting to match your playing style or finger strenth. Turn off touch sensitivity for a fixed response setting, ideal when playing the organ.

Music Book Included
Sheet music for the 50 built-in demonstration songs is included with the YDP-323.
