It's your piano
Your piano should be an extension of yourself, and just because the P-515 comes out of the box already sounding, feeling and looking great, you can still make it your own. The P-515 provides you with your own personal Piano Room where you can choose the type of piano you play, what kind of room you're playing in, and adjust a variety of settings to shape your sound.
Download the Smart Pianist app for iOS, connect your device to your piano, and you have added an intuitive touch screen interface making navigating the sounds and settings of your instrument even easier. Smart Pianist seals the deal by accessing the songs in your iOS device's music library creating a chord chart for you, so you can play along with recordings of your personal favorite songs.
Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial piano samples
The P-515 features piano sounds created with samples of the Yamaha CFX flagship concert grand piano and famed Vienna-made Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano. These piano samples bring two of the world’s finest and most prominent concert grand pianos to your fingertips.
Reproducing the Natural Sensation of Sound Distance
P-515 features two advanced technologies that allow you to enjoy exceptionally realistic, natural sound, even when listening through headphones - Binaural Sampling and Stereophonic Optimizer. Binaural sampling technology delivers a three-dimensional sound, which recreates the perspective of the player position through headphones. The Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spatial distribution of sound in the listener's headphones, creating the sensation that sound is coming directly from the piano, rather than from the headphones.
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard - the feel of an acoustic grand piano
Yamaha Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboards are created using our unrivaled woodworking expertise, acquired through more than a century of crafting fine acoustic pianos. The material used for NWX keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried, and chosen specifically for use in making musical instruments. Only the best wood from the finest part of the tree is selected, resulting in a keyboard that is more resistant to buckling and warping than common laminated wood keyboards.
The NWX keyboard also features an escapement mechanism that reproduces the feel of an acoustic piano as it goes through the let-off and drop of the hammer when a key is played very softly. The action has been designed in such a way that the escapement is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.
Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) – the distinctive reverberation generated by the concert grand piano
VRM calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes of the keyboard, from one instant to the next, and timing and depth of damper pedals pressed to recreate the sound of an acoustic piano. Enhanced VRM also calculates aliquot resonance in the upper octaves, and the full resonance of the soundboard, rim and frame. This technology allows for vivid, bright, richly varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in piano performance.
Aliquot is a stringing method for pianos that uses extra, un-struck strings in the upper octaves to enhance the tone. These strings sympathetically vibrate with other strings in an acoustic piano, resonating with overtones and adding richness, brilliance and complex color to the sound. Since they do not have a damper, they will continue sounding even after you release your hands from the keyboard.
Powerful onboard speaker system
P-515 features 15w + 5w amplifiers along with a 2-way speaker system that provides an immersive, authentic piano experience with astonishing clarity.
P-515 also features the Twisted Flare Port: Yamaha technology that offers a clear and precise bass sound. The flared and gently twisted shape evenly diffuses the air flow through the port. Compared to a conventional port, the Twisted Flare Port reduces air turbulence noise, resulting in clear and accurate low frequency reproduction.
Customizing the Sound and the Touch Response of Piano Voices (Piano Room)
The Piano Room function is for those who want to simply, conveniently and fully enjoy playing the instrument as a piano. No matter what settings for Voices you've made, you can instantly call up the optimum settings for piano performance with a single button press. Try creating a custom piano sound by adjusting the various parameters such as lid position, string resonance, damper resonance, touch response and so on.
In addition to Piano Room, applying on board effects such as reverb, chorus and various effects gives you greater and richer expressive capability.
Playing the piano along with Rhythm Playback
The P-515 comes complete with 40 different rhythm patterns (drums and bass accompaniments) that are perfectly suited to many types of music, allowing you to spice up your performance with some backing musicians, make practice more interesting or open up your creative flow with inspiring new ideas.
