In both design and playability, Yamaha Piaggero embodies the almost lyrical combination of "piano" and "leggero" – Italian for "light" – that constitutes its name. Piaggero provides go-anywhere portability and style while also delivering Yamaha's legendary piano touch & tone. Whether you're taking up piano for the first time or recapturing your musical passion, the Piaggero offers easy-going piano fun.
To recreate the playability of an acoustic piano, Piaggero features Yamaha's own Graded Soft Touch keyboard, giving keys in the lower octave a heavier touch than those in the upper octaves.
Along with superb grand piano sound, Piaggero features a number of popular instrument Voices, such as organ and strings, recorded using Yamaha's AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) stereo sampling technology for amazingly true-to-life sound. And for a complete orchestra of sonic options, Piaggero includes XGlite Voices and drum/SFX kits.
Piaggero boasts over 160 preset Styles -- from the basic eight-beat to contemporary Latin rhythms -- that follow and backup the performer with dynamically responsive accompaniment.
At the touch of a button, Piaggero's Music Database offers pre-set combinations of Styles, Voices, effects and tempos based on the song of your choice.
