Yamaha DGX650B Portable Grand Piano Price: $799.99

Yamaha just introduced its new DGX-650, a Portable Grand digital piano that is ideal for piano students and hobbyists of all ages. This entertaining alternative to an acoustic upright piano offers several features that make learning and playing piano more fun than ever, including upgraded piano sound and CD-quality audio recording and playback, as well as the ability to play chords with a single keystroke and interactive software that helps players quickly learn songs of their favorite artists from many genres. It includes a stand and a sustain footswitch, and is available in two attractive finishes: black with rosewood side panels or spotlight white.

The DGX-650 has category-leading touch and tone with PureCF sampling, which integrates the authentic sounds from the critically acclaimed nine-foot Yamaha CFIIIS Grand Piano into this powerful portable keyboard. Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard action provides the natural touch response of a full-size grand piano -- the lower keys are heavier and the higher keys become gradually lighter through the different registers. Extra-large, front-facing speakers provide a full and rich room-filling presence.

"The DGX-650 is an ensemble digital piano that is ready to be enjoyed by a wide range of aspiring pianists, from those looking to learn and grow their musical abilities to those who may want the experience of playing with a band," said Dane Madsen, Yamaha Digital Piano Marketing Manager. "Players of all abilities will appreciate the comprehensive learning features, great sound and connectivity that make it possible to easily share performances with friends and relatives."

The DGX-650's XG song file compatibility and optional "You Are the Artist" series songbooks allow players to learn and play along with recordings of their favorite songs made popular by artists like Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Adele, Johnny Cash and more. With this special collection of piano songbooks and play-along recordings, piano music can be experienced in several ways. The piano part of a song can be played on the DGX-650's keyboard while XG song files play all of the backing band parts. Songs can be slowed down to allow players to practice at a comfortable tempo before speeding up when they're ready. Players can even practice one hand while the DGX-650 plays the other. "You Are the Artist" series songbooks and XG song files can be purchased at yamahamusicsoft.com/xg or any authorized Hal Leonard music retailer.

Sharing music is now easier than ever with new USB audio recording capabilities. CD-quality audio recordings of performances can be loaded onto computer and emailed to a friend, posted as a video on YouTube or simply transferred to an iPod.

The DGX-650 has many key features that intuitively assist beginners and novices in expressing themselves musically. Smart Chord mode enables major and minor chords to be played with just one key and is suitable for a variety of genres. For example, when playing a jazz song, players can automatically create complex 7th and 9th chords. When playing pop music, simpler three-note chords can be created. With Smart Chord, these instant four and five-note harmonies are now possible with a single finger.

A stereo 3.5mm AUX line input enables external audio devices to take advantage of the DGX-650 speaker system and offers another way aspiring artists can play along with their favorite songs stored on iPods, CD players or computers.

The DGX-650 delivers full 128-note polyphony, twice as much as the previous DGX-640 model, as well as more Voices (543) and Styles (195).

The new Style Recommender feature makes it easy to find a style of music based on playing keystrokes in any given rhythm. Based on what is played, a list of Styles that are similar to that rhythm, such as "bossa nova" or "rock ballad," are provided in the display for quick audition and selection.

The new speaker/headphone control gives performers a choice when connecting to external amplification. For example, if a PA is connected to the headphone jack, the player can choose to leave the built-in speakers powered for use as a local audio monitor.

Pricing and Availability

Available now. An optional piano-style 3-pedal frame (Yamaha LP7A) can be purchased separately for MSRP: $89.00.

Casio AT3 Mid Eastern (Oriental) 61 Key Keyboard Price: $396.00

From tone creation to recording and composing.

Features

A versatile selection of Oriental tones and rhythms built in

54 built-in Oriental tones include the oud, qanun, nay and more. A total of 83 built-in Oriental accompaniment rhythms covers everything from traditional to modern music. High-quality sound supports both Oriental music performance and composing.

Quick configuration of Oriental music scales

Oriental Scale Setting

The tuning of the built-in sound source can be easily changed by a quarter tone to recreate the scale required for Oriental music. The Oriental scale can be used for both composing and live performances. The final scale setting can also be applied to Auto Accompaniments as well.

Sequencer and mixer functions for total musical creation support

Multi-track Recorder Capabilities

Song Sequencer

The Song Sequencer provides 16 tracks plus one system track that supports recording of up to five songs and a total of approximately 30,000 notes. Each individual musical instrument part can be recorded to a different track for real multi-track recording capabilities. In addition to real-time recording of keyboard and Auto Accompaniment play, the Song Sequencer also supports punch-in and punch-out spot recording of specific parts of a song, and event editing lets you edit recorded data note-by-note. A full selection of editing tools includes event insert, event delete, event copy, quantize, a locator feature for selecting the range of notes to be edited, and more. A step recording function also lets you input notes by specifying the length and pitch. Completed recordings can be converted to SMF (Standard MIDI File) format and stored to an SD memory card.

Create rich, realistic rhythm sections of your very own

Pattern Sequencer

Up to eight tracks (drum, percussion, bass, chord 1 through chord 5) can be edited to create original accompaniment patterns (INTRO, NORMAL, NORMAL FILL-IN, VARIATION, VARIATION FILL-IN). In addition to recording over each individual accompaniment part of an existing rhythm, an event editing function gives you total control over each aspect of recorded data, an Easy Edit function lets you combine accompaniment from multiple built-in rhythms to create original rhythms, and mixer capabilities give you control over the tones, volume levels, reverb, and other parameters of each part. A full selection of editing tools includes event insert, event delete, event copy, quantize, and more. Memory is provided for storage of up to 100 different user rhythms, which can be recalled with the touch of a key.

Great for creating original demo recordings

Audio Recording/Playback

Keyboard play, Auto Accompaniment, Song Sequencer play, and sound input via the INST IN and/or MIC IN terminals can be recorded as digital audio data to an SD memory card inserted in the card slot for later playback. Of course, you can play along on the keyboard during playback from an SD memory card. Saved audio files can also be transferred to a computer connected via USB for long-term storage. Special Data Manager 6.0 application software, downloadable from the URL shown below, can be used to convert data to WAV format, which can be played back on a computer. All of this greatly simplifies the task of creating original demo recordings.


Data Manager 6.0 download site:

When even more sound creation attention to detail is required

32-channel Mixer

The volume, pan, reverb send and other settings can be adjusted to exactly the levels you want for each individual part. You can also adjust sounds input via the MIC IN terminal and INST IN terminal.

Yamaha DGX650B Portable Grand Piano Bundle Price: $979.99

Yamaha just introduced its new DGX-650, a Portable Grand digital piano that is ideal for piano students and hobbyists of all ages. This entertaining alternative to an acoustic upright piano offers several features that make learning and playing piano more fun than ever, including upgraded piano sound and CD-quality audio recording and playback, as well as the ability to play chords with a single keystroke and interactive software that helps players quickly learn songs of their favorite artists from many genres. It includes a stand and a sustain footswitch, and is available in two attractive finishes: black with rosewood side panels or spotlight white.

The DGX-650 has category-leading touch and tone with PureCF sampling, which integrates the authentic sounds from the critically acclaimed nine-foot Yamaha CFIIIS Grand Piano into this powerful portable keyboard. Yamaha's Graded Hammer Standard action provides the natural touch response of a full-size grand piano -- the lower keys are heavier and the higher keys become gradually lighter through the different registers. Extra-large, front-facing speakers provide a full and rich room-filling presence.

"The DGX-650 is an ensemble digital piano that is ready to be enjoyed by a wide range of aspiring pianists, from those looking to learn and grow their musical abilities to those who may want the experience of playing with a band," said Dane Madsen, Yamaha Digital Piano Marketing Manager. "Players of all abilities will appreciate the comprehensive learning features, great sound and connectivity that make it possible to easily share performances with friends and relatives."

The DGX-650's XG song file compatibility and optional "You Are the Artist" series songbooks allow players to learn and play along with recordings of their favorite songs made popular by artists like Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Adele, Johnny Cash and more. With this special collection of piano songbooks and play-along recordings, piano music can be experienced in several ways. The piano part of a song can be played on the DGX-650's keyboard while XG song files play all of the backing band parts. Songs can be slowed down to allow players to practice at a comfortable tempo before speeding up when they're ready. Players can even practice one hand while the DGX-650 plays the other. "You Are the Artist" series songbooks and XG song files can be purchased at yamahamusicsoft.com/xg or any authorized Hal Leonard music retailer.

Sharing music is now easier than ever with new USB audio recording capabilities. CD-quality audio recordings of performances can be loaded onto computer and emailed to a friend, posted as a video on YouTube or simply transferred to an iPod.

The DGX-650 has many key features that intuitively assist beginners and novices in expressing themselves musically. Smart Chord mode enables major and minor chords to be played with just one key and is suitable for a variety of genres. For example, when playing a jazz song, players can automatically create complex 7th and 9th chords. When playing pop music, simpler three-note chords can be created. With Smart Chord, these instant four and five-note harmonies are now possible with a single finger.

A stereo 3.5mm AUX line input enables external audio devices to take advantage of the DGX-650 speaker system and offers another way aspiring artists can play along with their favorite songs stored on iPods, CD players or computers.

The DGX-650 delivers full 128-note polyphony, twice as much as the previous DGX-640 model, as well as more Voices (543) and Styles (195).

The new Style Recommender feature makes it easy to find a style of music based on playing keystrokes in any given rhythm. Based on what is played, a list of Styles that are similar to that rhythm, such as "bossa nova" or "rock ballad," are provided in the display for quick audition and selection.

The new speaker/headphone control gives performers a choice when connecting to external amplification. For example, if a PA is connected to the headphone jack, the player can choose to leave the built-in speakers powered for use as a local audio monitor.
