A Portable Grand with both Educational and Advanced Features!
Yamaha's YPG-235 adds to their popular Portable Grand Series — and it's packed with a host of great features, especially given its modest price. There's a 6-track sequencer onboard for immediate song-building, as well as a music database of 267 setups, listed by song title to get your creativity flowing — plus it uses Flash ROM memory, so you can easily download more songs to your YPG-235. Its 76-key design gives you enough keys to express yourself but helps keep it light enough to carry anywhere your music takes you. Plus, it has a USB connection so you can easily use the Yamaha YPG-235 with your computer.
Plenty of great features for songwriting
You'll enjoy the YPG-235's onboard 6-track sequencer — great for capturing moments of inspiration and building onto them right away. The YPG-235's Easy Song Arranger feature actually allows you to remix MIDI files so you can play them your own way, while the YPG has 489 quality XGlite/GM voices for even more expressive playing. You can use layer and split modes to further enhance your sound — playing bass notes with your left hand, and controlling a string section with your right! Once you've gotten the parts sequenced perfectly, you can easily save the song to your computer via USB — or just pop in a portable USB thumb drive, and you can take your project with you in your pocket!
Educational tools right onboard
This YPG-235 features the Yamaha Education Suite, which gives you interactive lessons to develop your piano skills and even monitors your progress. It has 30 internal songs, with 70 more on CD, so you can play along with more challenging pieces while practicing your playing "in time." Its Flash ROM memory also lets you download more songs — and you can even connect a USB thumb drive to the YPG-235 to add your favorite MIDI songs so you can then learn them using the Education Suite!
A great piano for all levels of players
From beginners to the most seasoned players, the YPG-235 is a great go-to portable piano. It has a pitch bend wheel and a sustain pedal jack that allow for expressive playing, as well as 5 types of preset Master EQ for sculpting the right tone from its 489 voices. 2-way stereo speakers, complete with bass ports, are right onboard so you can get playing immediately, and it also a headphone jack for times when noise might be an issue.
