The Yamaha NP12 virtual piano keyboard is a professional piano for those who want to have the sound of a grand piano at their fingertips. From the light, open tone, from the rich, dark tones picked up from one of Yamaha’s best concert pianos, to the rich, vibrant sounds sampled from one of Yamaha’s best concert pianos, the NP-32 delivers incredible tone quality and incredible value. It is amazingly natural and intuitive, and you could play it just about anywhere. In fact, it is so portable you could carry it in your pocket wherever you go!
Of course, even with its portability, there is more to this wonderful product than just its amazing sound quality. It is one of the smallest and lightest keyboards available on the market today. It has also been equipped with some of Yamaha’s most innovative features such as a digital expression pedal that gives you unprecedented expression and control over octave playing capability, a USB interface that makes it easy to connect with multiple computers and other electronic musical instruments, and an extremely large onboard memory that stores all your songs, styles, and patterns so you can quickly search through them when you need them. There’s also a high-fidelity sound engine that creates truly impressive chord variations and harmonic harmonies.
Although this is probably not the keyboard for you if you like performing or rehearsing on the piano, the Yamaha NP12 virtual piano is a great addition to your collection of pianos. With its light weight portability, you can bring it along when you take the road trips that you often need to take. It also has a retractable keyboard case that will protect it from bumps and scrapes on the road. In addition, it folds up smaller than most standard notebook keyboards which makes it even more compact when it’s not in use.
One of the main differences between the Yamaha NP12 and some of the other lightweight portable keyboards available today is that it doesn’t have a full-sized keyboard. It only has one sixty-two keys, but it makes up for it with extremely fast and precise note punching ability. Some people might find the lack of keys a little to their disadvantage, but many piano owners enjoy the increased mobility it provides. One of the great things about the NP12 is that it can be used on top of a computer without the additional weight making it uncomfortable. This mobility is one of the main differences between the Yamaha and most of the portable keyboards.
Another great feature of the Yamaha NP12 is the fact that it doesn’t use the regular size keys found on most portable keyboards. The keys are referred to as “protrusion” keys, which means they’re located close to the tips of your fingers for greater control. Some users may find this to be an inconvenient feature, especially when typing quickly and need to hit multiple keys at once. You won’t experience any fatigue during long hours of use thanks to the rapidity with which you can type using the projection keys on the Yamaha NP12.
The polyphonic performance of the Yamaha NP12 is another advantage worth mentioning. The polyphony is a voice output device that lets you hear yourself play along as you record your performance. The polyphony feature of the NP12 is a great feature for beginners and professional performers alike. Not only does the polyphony feature allow you to sing songs by ear but you can also play back chords and produce your own sounds through the sound card. The weighted keys provide a fluid and accurate typing experience thanks to the smooth and responsive feel of the weighted keys.
