Yamaha YPT-230 Keyboard Bundle
Item # 608621
The YPT230 Package contains everything you need to get started; including eMedia Instructional Software, a Pair of Closed-Cup Headphones, a Single-Braced X-style Keyboard Stand, and a Power Supply. The YPT230 offers pure playing pleasure for both beginners and experienced players!
The YPT-230 features 385 natural sounding voices, including Stereo Grand Piano, 371 XGlite voices, 13 drum kits and a sound effect kit. The YPT-230 also has 100 accompaniment styles and 102 built-in songs. The keyboard also has a rich Reverb effect that adds concert-hall ambience to any performance.
Use the Portable Grand button to instantly call up an authentic stereo grand piano sound. One dedicated button brings up a great sounding piano, stunningly rich and authentic in its sound and exceptionally responsive to your playing touch, as well as setting up the keyboard to play as a piano.
In addition to the 102 songs mentioned above, the YPT230 also has auto accompaniment styles that follow your playing. Simply select a style of music from the 100 built-in Styles (example Rock), play a single note or chord on the left side of the keyboard and play your melody on the right side. The YPT230 will create a backup band (bass, drums, strings, guitar etc.) and follow you through the song. You can play your songs and try different genres of music. It's both fun and entertaining.
The music pathway to your computer and the Internet is MIDI. It's the way that keyboards communicate with computers. And because the YPT230 is both General MIDI (GM) and XGlite compatible, you have access to thousands of MIDI song files on the Internet.
Some keyboards have two speakers but aren't stereo. Don't be fooled. Just because a keyboard has two speakers doesn't mean that it's truly stereo with two separate amplifiers. All Yamaha Portable Keyboards feature stereo-sampling technology. The YPT-230 now features a new Ultra Wide stereo sound field that adds an extended, wider, dynamic range. There are various Ultra Wide Stereo presets that can be selected.
In electronic keyboards, the more sounds made at the same time polyphony the more memory is needed. Obviously, more is always better, because too little polyphony can cause dropouts in dense passages of music. Some keyboards at this price point have only 12-note polyphony. The YPT230 has 32 notes of polyphony and will play back 16 different parts or sounds at once (16-part multi timbrel); enough for the most demanding needs.
The YPT230 has a large selection of professional sounding Voices called XGlite. The result is amazing sound quality and 385 Voices for you to choose from, offering compatibility with both 3rd party and Yamaha XG software. Just some of the great sounds you'll find in this keyboard are trumpets, violins, electric pianos, harpsichord, organ, guitars and bass guitar.
This package comes bundled with eMedias Starter Piano and Keyboard Lessons software! With over 50 step-by-step lessons starting from basics such as hand position, note reading, time signatures, playing on black keys, and more; this software will get you started on the right track for success. Piano teacher Irma Irene Justicia, M.A., who has taught at the renowned Julliard School of Music, guides you with video demonstrations of techniques. Songs and exercises are enhanced by live recorded audio, variable-speed MIDI keyboard tracks and colorful MIDI accompaniments. Interactive review and ear training screens help reinforce new concepts and develop your ear.
