Forget about digital pianos that are based solely on dynamic stereo sampling. The incredibly realistic and richly detailed sound of the Yamaha pf500 Professional Digital Piano is produced through 2 kinds of sampling: Dynamic stereo sampling (each key sampled at 3 levels), and string resonance sampling (the complex resonances created by sympathetic harmonic vibrations of piano strings). It makes the Yamaha PF500 keyboard sound full and rich.
Other great features on this beautiful sounding and natural playing Yamaha digital piano include 38 preset voices plus 480 XG voices, as well as 12 drum kits. And you can add effects like chorus, reverb, brilliance, variation effect, and insertion effects to the various voices. Internal song memory, song recorder, a speaker system, a contemporary classic design, split function, PC interface, 128 notes of polyphony, and a 16-track sequencer.
