The Ideal Fusion of Rich, Expressive Sound and Exceptional Style
As the newest member of Yamaha's P series line, the P-140 delivers incredible sound performance at an incredibly sound price. Featuring Yamaha's highly acclaimed Graded Hammer Effect keyboard as well as realistic piano and instrumental voices, the P-140 offers both the authentic feel of an acoustic piano and the advanced features of today's digitals. Whether you are an accomplished or aspiring musician, the P-140 has the simple operation and superior style you need to showcase your abilities.
The P-140 brings users an exceptional range of instrument voices, from organs and harpsichords to the new, all-in-one piano & string dual voice. Recorded using Yamaha's own AWM sampling technology, all onboard voices accurately reproduce the subtlest harmonics of the actual instrument with stunning realism.
Dynamic Stereo Sampling
To offer truly authentic sound, Yamaha takes piano voice sampling to a whole new level. With three separate layers of stereo samples each set at a different velocity, Dynamic Stereo Sampling changes not only the volume, but also the harmonic structure of the notes depending on how hard you play the keyboard - just like a real acoustic piano! An exclusive fourth sample layer recreates a piano's unique sustain resonance whenever the damper pedal is pressed, while key-off samples add even the subtle sounds of felt dampers coming to rest on piano strings. Better still, the P-140's highly efficient built-in powered speaker system directs your music forward for unbeatable sound.
Realistic Piano Action
The P-140 features Yamaha's highly acclaimed Graded Hammer Effect keyboard, the result of more than a century's worth of piano craftsmanship and ingenuity. It's designed so that the keys in the lower registers have a heavier touch than those in the upper, which helps to create the feel of an acoustic piano. Just take a look at the different-sized hammers under the lid of any grand piano and you'll see why Yamaha puts the Graded Hammer Effect keyboard in all P-Series instruments.
