BASED ON THE YAMAHA CLAVINOVA CVP-205 DIGITAL PIANO, THE PF1000 OFFERS AN ALTERNATIVE CABINET STYLE AND PORTABILITY
Yamaha has launched this new style of Clavinova for those musicians who need their Clavinova to be portable but when it's not on stage to still look the part when it's parked at home in the living room. The instrument looks great in "real life" and comes complete with music rest. The PF1000 is easily dismantled for transportation between venues
WELCOME TO THE DIGITAL PART
When you bring a digital piano into your home, you bring so much more than an acoustic piano has to offer. Of course, Yamahas digital pianos offer all the touch response and beautifully rich, detailed piano sound you want. Plus a great deal more, including a full orchestra of superb quality digitally sampled instruments, and a whole host of advanced auto accompaniment features. What's more, you get all the convenience of a digital instrument: no need for costly tuning, greater portability, and you can use headphones, so you can play any time you like without disturbing the family or your neighbors.
IF YOU'RE GOING TO STUDY THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
The digital piano features a truly extensive learning system. Right from day one, the kids-or even grandad can learn by playing real music instead of practice pieces, making it fun and enjoyable to study. There's even a built-in recorder so you can record your performance and see how you're doing, and save it to a floppy disk to build up a continuing progress report.
BUILD UP YOUR OWN LIBRARY OF MUSIC SOFTWARE
Yamaha offers an enormous library of music software for study, karaoke, play along, or just playback enjoyment. Pick up a song file data disk and enjoy minus-one playback that lets you step into the spotlight and solo in front of a full orchestra. Or load a style data disk, and add more auto accompaniment styles. No matter what kind of music you like, or at what level you play, there's sure to be just the title for you. From classical to rock, pop to ethnic, the list is almost endless.
PLUG IN TO SOME SINGALONG FUN
Pop a karaoke floppy disk into the drive and you've got your own home karaoke center. Song lyrics are displayed on-screen, so the entire family can get together for real singalong entertainment. What's more, you can even get some other instruments out (maybe dads old guitar!) and play along with the songs for a whole new style of karaoke experience.
XG OPENS UP EVEN MORE MUSIC
XG is Yamaha's revolutionary extension of the General MIDI format. Naturally, it contains all of the GM standards, so you have complete compatibility with commercially available GM software. And it goes a lot further, to include a huge set of additional voices -a minimum of three effects processors with many effects types -MIDI control of analog inputs allowing processing of, for example, microphone inputs to create vocal harmonies -extensive control of other parameters for real-time sound shaping. What's more, there's also a vast selection of XG song software available. And if you're connected to the internet, you can tap into an incredible variety of XG resources.

CONNECT TO YOUR PC AND ADD EXTRA POWER
Handy one-cord connection to your Windows or Macintosh computer adds a whole new dimension of power to the digital piano. For example, you can use commercially available sequencing software, such as Yamahas XGworks, to create truly complex and advanced performances. Or you can use notation software to create sheet music for the compositions you create. There's almost no limit to what you can do.

If you're looking for a digital piano that truly emulates the expressive touch of an acoustic piano, this is it. Many digital pianos claim to do this but leave you disappointed. Not so with the Yamaha PF1000. The PF 1000 uses three layers of stereo piano samples. Each of these samples are set at a different velocity so when you play lightly you hear a soft delicate piano sound. Apply more pressure on the keys and the piano becomes louder and richer with more harmonic overtones. This is similar to the response that you get in an acoustic piano.
But the Yamaha PF1000 doesn't stop there. It features Stereo Sustain samples and Key-off samples for added realism. Special mention must be made of the keyboard's Graded Hammer Effect. With this effect the keys in the lower registers of the digital piano are heavy while those in the higher registers are lighter. It's just like a real piano. If you're looking for a digital piano that responds to the subtlest dynamics of your playing, you've found it. The keyboard also comes with a custom three-foot pedal. If you're looking for a keyboard which is in touch with piano reality, this is it.
This Yamaha digital piano comes with a huge selection of high-quality voices. It has a total of 308 panel voices, 480 XG voices and as many as 16 drum kits. Some of my personal favorites apart from piano are classical flute, soprano sax,and the choir/pad voices. And you can add 6 blocks of digital effects (Reverb, Chorus, DSP) for a richer sound. You don't see digital pianos with so many sounds that often. With an acoustic piano, you are stuck with one sound, not so with this digital piano.
Other great features include 259 professionally arranged accompaniment styles, large LCD with graphical user interface, 96-note polyphony, PC interface (TO HOST) for computer connection, and score/lyrics display function and video out jack.
If sequencing is your thing you will be delighted to know that the Yamaha PF 1000 comes with a 16-track sequencer as well as a built-in floppy disk drive. This is one feature I've always liked in keyboards. It's perfect for getting those creative juices flowing.
It also comes with built-in two-way 30W stereo speakers, custom 3-foot pedal with half pedal effect, keyboard stand, and music rest.
I highly recommend this Yamaha digital piano. I've read so many positive reviews about it so I know I'm not the only one who just loves it. Click here to buy a newer Yamaha digital piano model.
