YAMAHA CP1

Providing the ultimate in acoustic and vintage electric piano tone and touch, the CP1 is Yamaha’s flagship designed for the demanding pro.

The development of the new CP series started with the no-compromise CP1. This is a premium instrument with a commitment to both tradition and innovation. The core sound technology inside the new CP Series was completely re-designed from the ground up. A unique new Spectral Component Modeling tone generation system recreates the sound of acoustic and vintage electronic pianos more faithfully than anything else has ever done. This new technology responds to the player’s touch allowing more creative expression than ever before possible. Yamaha even developed a special NW-STAGE wooden key action specifically to meet the demands of top pros. Simply put, this combination of touch and tone make the CP1 the most expressive stage piano that has ever been created.

New SCM tone generating system exclusively for acoustic and electric pianos delivers expressive tone.

A unique new SCM (Spectral Component Modeling) tone generation system faithfully recreates the 17 selected sounds of acoustic and vintage electronic pianos and responds to the player’s touch to provide more creative expression than ever before possible. *The Spectral Component Modeling system starts with a fundamentally different tone generation system than Yamaha has ever used before. By combining Sampling and Modeling technology, it optimizes tone generation for each instrument so that every nuance of the player’s touch is translated into expressive tone. Newly developed NW-STAGE wooden keyboard offers matched tone and touch

Newly developed NW-STAGE wooden keyboard offers matched tone and touch

Using technology and experience from 100 of building Yamaha Acoustic Pianos, the new 88-key NW-STAGE wooden keyboard offers the perfect playability for stage performance . It minimizes keyboard vibration, and the synthetic ivory keytops feel great when your are playing. This keyboard technology effortlessly reproduces the true feeling of acoustic and electric pianos.

Customizing totally original piano sounds

Allowing you to freely build your own acoustic and electric pianos by selecting different components of piano types, amplifiers, and effects, the Spectral Component Modeling technology makes easy work of recreating standard vintage sounds or realizing unique, original sonic palettes. With your instruments assembled, you can then adjust various parameters of the physical components like "Hammer Stiffness" or "Stiriking Position" to create an even more diverse range of exciting piano sounds.

Convenient master-keyboard function

Using the CP1’s master-keyboard function, which has been specially crafted for use on-stage, up to four virtual zones can be setup on the keyboard and assigned to four different tone generators, including other MIDI instruments.

Designed for the artist

Each individual part of the CP1 was specifically designed to reflect Yamaha’s commitment to making a timeless instrument with lasting value. The classic wooden side panels and the vintage textured top call up memories of legendary keyboards of the past. The brilliant vacuum florescent display, brushed aluminum volume knob and illuminated Yamaha logo reflect the state-of-the-art, cutting edge technology under the hood. The knobs, switches and intuitive user interface are all laid out for optimum ease of use in performance. All these design elements come together to make a stunning visual statement on stage.
