Features and Functions
The Yamaha NP11 has 61 piano-style keys sporting a non-weighted, graded soft-touch feel. You can adjust the touch response from Hard, Medium, Soft or Fixed, one being just perfect for your particular style of playing. Useful functions such as adjustable tempo, adjustable time signature and transpose are easily within reach on the top panel. The built-in metronome features a numeric key function allowing you to set the tempo to the exact resolution you need.
32-voice polyphony means your notes won't drop out even when performing complicated scales and runs up and down the keyboard. You can play 2 different sounds simultaneously at the touch of a button. Layer strings on top of piano for a lush marriage of tones that go together perfectly as you lift your ballads to new heights or layer vibes on top of a piano for an increased bell-like quality that really cuts through the mix. The built-in stereo speaker system is powered by it's own 5 watt amplifier and yields crisp, clean sound quality. Auto Power Off mode kicks in when the NP11 hasn't been played for 30 minutes, thus saving energy…very eco-friendly!
