YPP50 Compact Personal Piano
Enter a world of uncompromising sound quality with the Yamaha YPP50 personal electronic piano. Designed and built for people, who really care about music, the YPP50 brings you acoustic piano sounds that are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. And all in an amazingly compact and stylish body. If you're ready to step up from your portable electronic keyboard, or even if you're just starting out, you deserve the quality and realism of the YPP50. At the heart of the astonishingly lifelike sound is Yamaha's unique AWM technology. AWM features multiple digital samples of fine acoustic pianos. So when you strike a key, what you hear is a digital recording of a concert grand, captured in all its complex majesty. Plus the 76-key keyboard, with its piano-like touch, is sure to satisfy. Try the new YPP50 and discover the new world of personal music.

8 instrument voices to choose from: Piano, Electric Piano, Harpsichord, Vibes, Strings, Brass, Pipe Organ or Bass to match the mood of your music. Harpsichord and Pipe Organ are perfect for Bach. The mellow sounds of Electric Piano or Vibes are ideal for laidback jazz. And lush Strings and Brass voices are just right for modern orchestral type music.

Headphone Jack
Headphone jack lets you play all night long! Want to practice until late, but worried about annoying the neighbors? No problem. Just plug a set of headphones in and play away. Nobody can hear your playing, so nobody ever complains about the noise. The perfect thing for city-dwellers, or parents whose children are studying the piano.

Built-In Digital Performance Memory
Unlike acoustic pianos, the YPP-50 never goes out of tune. So there's no need to employ costly piano tuners to maintain the correct tuning. No matter what the temperature or humidity, the YPP-50 always stays in tune.

Built-In Metronome
Stay in time with the built-in metronome. To help develop good time, there's even a built-in metronome. Just press the Metronome button once to start, and a second time to stop. Tempo buttons adjust the tempo.

Built-In Digital Performance Memory
Explore the performance possibilities of this personal piano. Wouldn't it be nice to have a tape recorder permanently set up so you could quickly and easily check out your playing? Or maybe play along with a piece you already recorded? Well the YPP50 makes it pushbutton simple. Just press the REC button in the Performance Memory Section, and play a piece of music. Then press the PLAY button to listen to it. If you like, you can play along, and even use a different instrument voice.

Bass Split for Ensemble Style Playing
Press the Bass voice button and any other instrument button at the same time. Then try playing a little melody. Notice how the left-hand parts all use the Bass voice, while the right-hand parts use the other voice you chose? The YPP50 lets you select any of the voices to go with the Bass voice, allowing you to play bass accompaniments to your melody lines.
