Made for musicians...

When developing the CP73 stage piano, Yamaha focussed on perfect stage compatibility. This focus is evident in the control pattern, linking every element on the instrument’s surface to exactly one function under the hood. There is no navigating of menus and submenus, every function can be controlled directly –a great advantage when adjustments need to be made quickly, reliably and intuitively in hectic live situations. Seamless Sound Switching allows for changing to a different sound while played notes still fade out. A song’s final chord can still slowly ebb away while the sound required for the next song is already loaded up.

Firmware Update v1.5

CP OS v1.5 adds two great new pianos, synth pads, strings, brass, woodwinds, guitars and more.

Hamburg Grand

This Concert Grand piano was recorded inside a German concert hall. The result is a remarkably playable, present and rich-sounding instrument. The Hamburg Grand combines qualities found in both the CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial. It has the solid fundamental tone I love about the CFX, making it present when combined with other instruments. It stands out in a band, allowing you to be heard when comping or soloing without being overly cutting. At the same time, the Hamburg Grand has a nice resonant quality like the Bösendorfer Imperial. This makes it a nice choice for solo piano or more spacious and ambient genres. Simply put, this is a great addition to the CP73/88 Stage Pianos.

You’ll now have four different concert grand pianos to choose from: Hamburg Grand, CFX, Imperial, and CF3. Along with the character-rich Nashville C3, the specially voiced Live CF3 and two 7’6” grand pianos, the C7 and S700, OS v1.5 offers a room full of grand pianos suitable for any style of music.

Felt Piano U1

A Felt Piano is a specific sound created by adding additional layers of felt between the hammers and the strings. This creates a soft, delicate and intimate sound. Felt Pianos are popular, and you’ll hear them in film scores, ambient musical styles and jazz. The Felt U1 was created in collaboration with Steinberg using a special robot named “OSCAR”, or “Optimized Sample Computed Automatic Recording”. OSCAR physically plays each not on the piano precise velocity levels during the recording process. The result are perfectly even velocity layers that deliver the smooth response of the Felt U1. It’s extraordinarily responsive, with a deep rich sound in the low register and a full, enveloping character throughout the entire range. The Felt U1 has a serious cinematic quality. It very useful in this context, but it’s also a fine alternative when accompanying a vocalist works well when layered with electric pianos and pads. It can be used when creating looping textures with the delay. New SUB Section Sounds, 8 New Live Sets
