Fast, responsive keyboard action designed for piano players
CP88 is for the discerning pianist needing fast, accurate touch response. It features an 88-key Natural Wood, Graded Hammer, triple sensor (NW-GH3) keyboard with Synthetic Ebony and Ivory Key Tops. Natural Wood keys offer the weight and response that piano players expect. Adding different weight or "grading," the keyboard reproduces the feel of a piano's hammers: heavy in the low end and light in the high end. Synthetic Ebony and Ivory Key Tops are lightly porous which adds grip to the keys. This maintains accuracy during long performances or practice sessions.
Direct, immediate and total sound control
With its one-to-one interface, CP gives you direct, immediate and total control of your sound during stage or studio performance. There’s no programming, menu-diving or web searching with CP. The intuitive CP interface allows fast and easy splits, layers and sound-shaping directly from the front panel.
Three Premium Concert Grand Pianos
The featured three meticulous recorded concert grand piano sounds; the Yamaha CFX, Yamaha S700 and the Bösendorfer Imperial 290. These pianos provide full dynamic expression and nuance through meticulous recording and voicing. Also included are the U1 and SU7 upright. The voices provide a vintage, well-used character perfect for any music needing the vibe and sound of an authentic upright piano.
Synths, Strings and more
CP88 features synth sounds for covering any gig or session. Split, layer or solo warm pads, lush strings, deep synth basses, synth leads, brass and more. The one to one CP control interface allows real-time interaction for instant sound creation.
Electric Pianos, Clavi, Organs
CP88 features a wide range of other keyboard sounds including: tonewheel, transistor and pipe organs plus clavi, FM pianos and more to cover any playing situation. Popular electric pianos such as the Yamaha CP80 are authenticly recreated and provide that classic sound with the wide dynamic range you'd expect from the original.
CP88 features an extensive, integrated effects section for creating your own, unique sound. Each of the three sections (Piano section, Electric piano section and Sub section) features dedicated effects. There are also master effects with delay, reverb and master EQ with dedicated controls for easy, real-time tweaking.
Out of the box, CP88 features ultra-realistic piano and keyboard content, everything needed for the gigging keyboardist and discerning pianist. Taking the needs of the modern musician in mind, CP88 is the first CP to feature updatable Yamaha-produced, high-quality sound content which will include new pianos, keyboards and more.
