CK combines the sounds of the Yamaha CP Stage Piano with the organ and synth focused YC Stage Keyboard to give you a totally new sonic palette. All with an intuitive interface that lets you focus on the music, not the menus. You’ll have piano, electric pianos, strings and brass plus a dedicated organ section and modern synth sounds. Onboard special effects to make it your own. There’s even Analog to Digital (A/D) Input to plug in a mic or another instrument, apply effects and record directly to your laptop. Not to mention CK has built-in speakers and batteries to take your new sound to new places. The options are nearly endless.
Pianos, EP & Keys
CK features piano sounds from three legendary Yamaha grands: the CFX, S700 and CF3, plus the character-rich U1 upright piano from the Yamaha YC Series. “Digi Piano” sounds let you get your 90s dance party on. There’s also a selection of vintage electric piano sounds in both the reed and tine style, funky Clavi sounds and the classic 80s DX7-style FM electric pianos Yamaha helped make famous. You’ll have all the keyboard sounds you need to bring down the house, arena or backyard barbecue.
When it comes to organ, the versatile CK is all about options. Classic 60s surf rock? Check. Soulful R&B? Check. Gospel and everything in between? Amen. CK has a dedicated organ section based on the Yamaha reface YC mobile mini keyboard featuring five different organ types, rotary speaker effect, percussion and a newly enhanced vibrato/chorus. You get nine dedicated drawbars with controls for the rotary speaker, percussion and a vibrato/chorus section.
CK gives you a variety of complex synth sounds without the complex menus. You get analog style pads, leads and basses, synth brass, strings and pads. Even synth bells and textures to add to your synth sound palette. All with modern synth controls to tweak your sound without menu diving. Elegant filter and envelope generator (EG) controls to shape the tone and amplitude of all of them. Mono mode with panel switch and customization features that are great for synth leads and basses. Unison mode with panel switch, three modes and deeper adjustments. Make massive sounding synths for stabs, pads, leads, basses or anything you can imagine.
CK effects simplify sound customization with three dedicated processors: Drive, Effects 1, and Effects 2, along with an A/D Input having two unique effects. Drive offers five overdrive/distortion types to add edge, while Effects 1 and 2 provide modulation effects like Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Delay, Reverb, Wah, Tremolo, experimental synth effects (e.g., Ring Modulation, Slicer, Lo-Fi), and EQ. With 36 effects, it's like having a customizable guitar pedal board. Master Delay and Reverb offer four and three effects, respectively, with individual send levels from each of the three CK parts and A/D Input. Lastly, the Master EQ allows for final tone adjustments. A mic or instrument can be connected to the A/D input, apply effects, and hear the sound via CK's speakers or outputs. You can also record anything connected to the A/D input through the built-in USB audio interface.
CK lets you split, layer, mix and process all from the front panel. Making it easy to create with a nearly endless combination of sounds. Split bass and piano. Layer organ with strings. Experiment with modern synth sounds. CK gives you three parts that let the music go wherever you want.
Analog to Digital (A/D) Inputs let you apply two dedicated effects to the audio and store them to a LIVE SET.
CK features an intuitive, 1 to 1 interface that gives you the freedom to explore your sound. Everything, from dedicated Organ controls to Synth and Effects controls, is designed to keep you making music instead of diving into menus.
USB Audio/MIDI Interface
CK is much more than a pretty MIDI interface. Built-in stereo in/out USB Audio Interface lets you record and play back audio to and from CK to your computer or iOS device, including whatever is plugged into the A/D input. It even has USB MIDI and 5-pin DIN In/Out. Perfect for recording MIDI data, controlling softsynths or connecting to Soundmondo.
