The Yamaha Arius YDP-184 88-Key Digital Console Piano features the stunning sound of the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand piano. You can customize the piano sound in the 'Piano Room' by adjusting various parameters such as string resonance, damper resonance, and touch response. Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) simulates the way an acoustic piano resonates where the sound of one string causes sympathetic vibration in other strings and the soundboard--giving you a full, rich grand piano sound.

Ergonomics

The true grand piano sound, matched with a highly authentic and expressive keyboard, makes the YDP-184R the flagship Arius digital piano. By using a similar spring-less hammer mechanism as is found in a grand piano, the GH3 keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic instrument, from the heavier feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard to create a grand piano playing experience.

Piano Sound Quality Only Possible from Yamaha

Yamahaƒ??s flagship 9-inch concert grand piano, the CFX, offers sparkling highs and powerful resonant bass with a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010 and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.

VRM Physical Modeling 

In a grand piano, sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. This phenomenon is reproduced perfectly in the Arius through enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM). The original VRM calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard, as well as the timing and depth of the damper pedals when pressed, from one instant to the next. The enhanced VRM now also calculates aliquot resonance in the upper octaves, and the full resonance of the soundboard, rim, and frame. This technology allows for vivid, bright, richly-varied expression that reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in piano performance.

Superb Playability and Feel

Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) 88-key piano action with synthetic ebony and ivory keytops reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard to provide a grand piano-style response and feel. This allows for quick note repetition and authentic expressive control. The piano keyboard with synthetic ivory key tops provide a tactile surface to the white keys, absorbing moisture from the fingers and preventing them from slipping.

Pedaling Provides an Added Level of Realism

The half-damper pedal control creates more detailed nuance and subtlety when playing, similar to pedaling on a grand piano. This feature allows for continuously increasing lengths of sustained notes, from slight to full, as the sustain pedal is depressed. Stereo Sustain samples provide mellow reverberations when the player depresses the damper pedal. Similarly, Damper Resonance provides broad and deep resonance when the pedal is used. Similar to that of an acoustic piano, the result is more realistic sound.

Capture Your Performance

The MIDI recording function built into the instrument allows players to record performances. Players can record up to 16 tracks for simultaneous playback. Both hands can be recorded separately and played back together. Additionally, you can create your build your compositions by overdubbing different voices. The recordings are made in Standard MIDI file (SMF) format. Compatible software is required for playback of the recorded data on a computer.
