World Class Sound
With two world-renowned concert grand pianos available at the touch of a button, the P-515 lets you choose the perfect piano tone for the music you want to play. Offering far more than just sampled sounds, the P-515 reproduces the Yamaha CFX concert grand and the legendary Bӧsendorfer Imperial in meticulous detail.
Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard – the feel of an acoustic grand piano
Yamaha Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboards are created using our unrivaled woodworking expertise, acquired through more than a century of crafting fine acoustic pianos. The material used for NWX keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried, and chosen specifically for use in making musical instruments. Only the best wood from the finest part of the tree is selected, resulting in a keyboard that is more resistant to buckling and warping than common laminated wood keyboards.
The NWX keyboard also features an escapement mechanism that reproduces the feel of an acoustic piano as it goes through the let-off and drop of the hammer when a key is played very softly. The action has been designed in such a way that the escapement is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.
Reproducing the Natural Sensation of Sound Distance
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. Binaural sampling technology delivers a three-dimensional sound, which recreates the perspective of the player position through headphones. The Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spatial distribution of sound in the listener’s headphones, creating the sensation that sound is coming directly from the piano, rather than from the headphones.
Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) – the distinctive reverberation generated by the concert grand piano
VRM calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes of the keyboard, from one instant to the next, and timing and depth of damper pedals pressed to recreate the sound of an acoustic piano. 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 color 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 that provides an immersive, authentic piano experience with astonishing clarity. P-515 also features the Twisted Flare Port: Yamaha 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.
Bluetooth audio for wireless listening
Connect your music player via Bluetooth and instantly turn your P-515 into a high-quality speaker system to listen to your favorite songs through.
Simple operation using the Smart Pianist app!
Our Smart Pianist app allows you to control the many functions included in your P-515 with your iOS or Android device. Voices, rhythms and other settings can be selected right from your smart device’s touch screen, making it even easier to get what you want from your P-515. You can also save your favorite settings for quick recall at any time. Smart Pianist can even access the songs in your iOS device’s music library to create a chord chart for you, so you can play along with recordings of your personal favorite songs.
From selecting instrument Voices or adjusting settings to practicing with a metronome or recording your masterpieces, Smart Pianist gets you making music faster and lets you focus on the fun.
Smart Pianist scans the audio songs loaded in your Music Library, analyzes the chord progressions and then displays them for you on the screen of your smart device. Play along as the chords scroll by all the while hearing the song play back through your instrument’s speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play.
