The new Yamaha CP series stage pianos—the 73-key CP73 and the 88-key CP88—feature three main sections that can quickly be split or combined as desired: Piano, Electric Piano, and Sub. Selectable damper resonance adds even more realism to piano voices for solo passages. All sections are arranged into a one-to-one user interface that eliminates deep menu-diving, allowing the player to maneuver on a dime. Independent sound selection, volume, tone, on/off, split, and octave-shift controls make creating performance setups easier. In addition to ¼-inch outputs on the rear panel, balanced XLR outs allow connection to a mixer or stage snake without direct boxes. Left and right inputs have their own gain control, bringing a second keyboard through the CP’s main outputs without the need for a mixer.
