Two of the world's finest grand pianos
P-515 features piano sounds captured from Yamaha's flagship CFX concert grand and the famed Viennese Bösendorfer Imperial grand. These piano samples put two of the world’s finest and most prominent concert grand pianos at your fingertips.
Completely natural sound
P-515 features two advanced technologies that allow you to enjoy exceptionally realistic,
natural sound, even when listening through headphones: Binaural Sampling and Stereophonic Optimizer.
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard - the feel of an acoustic grand piano
The NWX keyboard found in P-515 features white keys made from only the best quality wood and topped with synthetic ivory. The black keys are finished in textured synthetic ebony. Furthermore, this keyboard features the true feel of the escapement mechanism found in a grand piano action when the hammer is thrown and then separated from the key in order to allow the string to vibrate freely.
Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM)
P-515 is able to calculate the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes of concert
grand from one instant to the next. Enhanced VRM 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. Aliquot is a stringing method for pianos that uses extra, un-struck strings in the upper octaves to enhance the tone. These strings sympathetically vibrate with other strings in an acoustic piano, resonating with overtones, and adding richness, brilliance and complex colour to the sound. Since they do not have a damper, they will continue sounding even after you release your hands from the keyboard.
Powerful onboard speaker system
P-515 features 15w + 5w amplifiers along with a 2 way speaker system which provides an immersive, authentic piano experience with astonishing clarity. P-515 also features a Twisted Flare Bass Port: Yamaha's technology that offers a clear and precise bass sound. The flared and gently twisted shape evenly diffuses the air flow through the port. Compared to a conventional port, the Twisted Flare Port reduces air turbulence noise, resulting in clear and accurate low frequency reproduction.
Customising the Sound and the Touch Response of Piano Voices (Piano Room)
The Piano Room function is for those who want to simply, conveniently, and fully enjoy playing the instrument as a piano. No matter what settings for Voice etc. you've made, you can instantly call up the optimum settings for piano performance with a single button press. Try creating a custom piano sound by adjusting the various parameters such as lid position, string resonance, damper resonance, touch response and so on. In addition to Piano Room, applying on board effects such as reverb, chorus and various effects gives you greater and richer expressive capability.
Play the piano with a backing band
P-515 comes complete with 40 simple rhythms (drums and bass accompaniment) that are perfectly suited to many types of music. Use these to spice up your performances, make practice more interesting, or open up your creative flow with inspiring new ideas.
