In both design & playability, Yamaha Piaggero embodies the almost lyrical combination of piano" & leggero" - Italian for light" - that constitutes its name.
Piaggero provides go-anywhere portability & style while also delivering Yamaha's legendary piano touch & tone.
Whether you're taking up piano for the first time or recapturing your musical passion, the Piaggero offers easy-going piano fun.
Touch of Class
To recreate the playability of an acoustic piano, Piaggero features Yamaha's own Graded Soft Touch (GST) keyboard, giving keys in the lower octave a heavier touch than those in the upper octaves.
While this scaled level of resistance is graded for a piano-like response, the keys themselves are not weighted for the sake of portability.
This brings the NP-V80 in at less than 16 pounds but still provides a touch that all pianists can appreciate.
Along w/superb grand piano sound, Piaggero features a number of popular instrument Voices, such as organ, strings, & guitar all recorded using Yamaha's AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) stereo sampling technology for amazingly true-to-life sound.
& for a complete orchestra of sonic options, Piaggero includes XGlite Voices & drum/SFX kits.
This ensures compatibility w/the wealth of Standard-MIDI & XG song files available today.
Piaggero NP-V80 boasts over 160 preset Styles -- from the basic rock & jazz beats to contemporary electronic rhythms -- that follow & backup the performer w/dynamically responsive accompaniment.
Every Style is essentially a backup band of virtual virtuosos ready to follow your lead.
Piaggero Styles all feature custom intros, variations, & endings giving you total control over your arrangement.
Go ahead & play a couple of extra verses at the end of your performance… Piaggero can handle it.
Piaggero Takes Requests
At the touch of a button, Piaggero's Music Database offers pre-set combinations of Styles, Voices, effects & tempos based on the song you’d like to perform.
Music Database is not a jukebox or playback device… it’s a feature that you use to quickly set up the Piaggero so you can play your favorite songs.
As new songs become popular, Piaggero’s Music Database stays w/the times because additional titles can be downloaded from the Internet on your PC & transferred via USB.
It’s the never-ending set list.
Playing It Smart
Play a chord & the NP-V80’s Intelligent Arpeggiator automatically plays the notes w/the appropriate feel of the instrument.
For example, different types of pianos have different signature grooves" made famous by artists performing & recording w/those keyboards.
Acoustic pianos, electric pianos, clavinets, synthesizers… a keyboardist comps" differently depending on the instrument they’re sitting at.
The Intelligent Arpeggiator matches the appropriate keyboard groove to
