[包箱 评价] YAMAHA P115 digital piano assessment

Preface:
As the world's largest musical instrument manufacturer, Yamaha is the earliest electronic instrument company that enters China, and he is in a more advantages of production management, quality control. It is difficult to compete for musical instruments that enter China after entering China. And this year, Yamaha launched the upgraded P115 of the P105 electric piano. It can be said that P115 is a continuation of the Yamaha brand and P-Series electrical piano, although the appearance and P-105 have almost no change, but in fact, there is greatly improved.
The following is the Box of the Taiwan Music:


Outer packaging:
The P115 looks thick than the general electric piano packaging.



 

Exterior:
P115 still uses the appearance of P105. The upgrade strategy in this and the P-series in recent years is the same, such as the previous generation of P85 and P95 appearances. Although the appearance of the P115 is the same as the previous generation P105, it has to praise the workmanship of Yamaha products here, it is impeccable in the same level, the shape is beautiful, the straight line is very simple, the workmanship is exquisite, the plastic housing is solid, The consistency of 88 pirates is very good, the gap is small and uniform, and there is no loose sense. The sound slider and the hand feel of the panel button are also in place, and the metal net cover of the speaker is also very meticulous. The interface behind the piano adopts an in-depth design, and the plug will not take up extra space and will not be bent because of the wall. The speaker of the piano is heading up and down two directions, it is very suitable for the home rely on the wall. I have contracted electric piano in the same price of other brands in the exhibition and the piano, and Yamaha's appearance workmanship can be said to be very outstanding in human design and exquisite. Although the same case mold with P105 is used, Yamaha has made some improvements in panel printing detail. First, the Yamaha logo originally moved to the left side is moved to the central position, more beautiful and beautiful; secondly, the original distribution is up and down two rows The tone name is all moved above the button, and it is more concentrated and easy to distinguish. It is more difficult to worn.


This is only the host of P115, no special fixed-homer and three pedal components are installed.









 

keyboard:
The P115's keyboard structure is the same as P105. It is the GHS keyboard of Yamaha. The characteristics of the GHS keyboard are small, which is lighter. I personally feel the shortcoming is that the key is slightly short (the keyboard is down to the bottom), the keyboard lacks) Some thickness, the caliper measurement, the Key to the P115 piano is about 1.2 cm, less than a brand electric piano product, may be the difference in performance of this point. However, in fact, the key to the actual performance is not big, after all, the electric piano and 88-key economic synthesizer Moxf8 are used in Yamaha, and 88 bond economy synthesizer Moxf8 is the GHS keyboard. Put it to the electric piano product of 4,000 yuan, the GHS keyboard is still a good choice. The black key surfaces of P115 and P105 are matte anti-slip processing, and the official mention of the black key of P115 has improved, but I have not found too much difference, maybe this subtle difference is really not discovered for me. .

 

 

 

Voice:

 

 

Compared with the first generation P105, P115 this largest increase in sound and function. The first is that the number of revolutions has increased significantly, although P105's 128 donor is sufficient for electric piano performance, but P115 is still upgraded again in the maximum number of revolutions, reaching 192 duffile! It guarantees that even if there is a lot of notes playing a lot of notes while 2 tones are superimposed.
The improvement in piano and electric piano tone is mainly reflected in: Further optimizing the main piano tone, and adds a more warm Mellow Grand piano tone, and also removes a softer FM electric piano tone on a P105, the total number of tones remains For 14 tones, this upgrade is still in line with most users' needs.
The quality of piano tone is indeed very restriction, the benevolent seeing the benevolence, the P115's main piano tone is pure, whether it is classical and popular, and is more appropriate. The middle sound area and the treble areas are very good, clean, and the wood is more powerful, and the sound pedal performance can also feel better space. The bass area may be in order to match the sound of the piano itself, lack some low frequency.

 

I have written 2 piano products for this P115 evaluation, interpretation with P115 piano tone, you can listen to P115's tone first

P115 Main Piano and Prime P105 Although the sound source engine is PURE CF, it will find some difference from the listening sensation, yamaha clearly, yamaha, the piano tone of the P115 is obviously changed. The piano tone of P115 is more rich in emotional hierarchies, and it is more thicker. The high frequency is relatively clearer, while P105 will look slightly hard and flat, of course, this is not related to the improvement of P115 speakers, because through The effect of picking up the Qin to listen to the speaker is not as large as the difference between the piano. The following is a comparison of the effects of direct recording directly on P115 and P105 in P115 and P105, respectively.

The price of Yamaha Electric piano has been involved in thousands to tens of thousands. According to the location of the product, their main piano tone is also partially independent. In addition to piano tone, electric piano tone is also a highlight of YAMAHA electric piano. The P115 has a built-in FM piano tone, which is the same as P105, which is also a selling point since P105, because this FM electric piano tone is unique to Yamaha. Another Stage EP tone is a rhodes electric piano tone, obviously Yamaha has upgraded this tone on P115, more oily stereo, and the sampling of great effort is better. The third electric piano tone is the WURLY electric piano tone of our Chinese users. However, since P115 increases a piano tone, it also removes a DX electric piano tone for this purpose. All in all, P115's electric piano tone has reached a professional recorder level.

The jazz organ of P115 also has improved in the previous generation P105, which can be used with the LP5A three pedal to switch the rotation speed of the jazz rotating speaker. Of course, the chance to use for Chinese users will not use a lot.

Strings string sound audition:

YAMAHA is more unique on the pedal processing of strings. When combined with the delay pedal playing strings, all finger-away sounds generate the effect of delayed automatic attenuation in the pedal state, this processing can make the play strings are not easy to "paste", especially the piano and string superposition It is more often encountered. This process seems to have only appeared on Yamaha products. The following is the effect of the piano overlay during the use of the pedal:

My feelings of P115 are: overall taste is very "right", very moderate, wide, and very classic. As a traditional electronic keyboard big label, they can be said to be impeccable for the sound of the sound. For electric piano with only a dozen tones, the number of tones means that each tone must be very positive, wide range Only one day can be protruded.



Rhythm and piano accompaniment:
In addition to the basic functions of the general electric piano, the keyboard segmentation, double performance, shift, metronics, MIDI recording, etc., P115 is also distinguished from other traditional electric piano, which comes with 14 rhythmograms. And 10 kinds of pianists style accompaniment. We can play more rhythmic music in combination with different style drums, or you can add different limbs with different limbs with different chords, piano style accompaniment feature. These two functions have been added in P105, but the P115's rhythm is automatically added to Intro Pattern (End Drum Segment) and Ending Pattern (End Drum Segment) in the beginning and end, so that the performance of playing into the loop constant Previously, one of the phanthes was more than a different end drum fragment at the end of performance, and it was colorful for playing. And P115 updated three kinds of rhythmoids based on P105 and additional additional four rhythmograms, the rhythm is more diverse, and especially some rhythms suitable for more lyrical types, the P115 rhythm update is concrete: Remove Triplet beat, march, Waltz on P105, joined 8Beat2, 16Beat2, Disco, Latin Pop, Shuffle, 6/8 Slow Rock, 16Beat Shuffle seven rhythm. In the 10 pianists style, the March style is removed and changed to 8 beat ballad. But unfortunately, the P115's rhythm is not available at the same time, so it cannot be used as a complete automatic accompaniment.

New important features:
P Series electric piano, the original intention of the design is to pursue the concise volume and function, and this P115 has been functioning several improvements, and these improvements I believe that it is truly for users to consider, not the head. First, yamaha redefines and optimizes 4 reverberation effects, and it is especially added to the Sound Boost sound enhancement. After opening this feature, the volume of the entire piano will increasing instantly, and still will not pop up, this is in the show Or is very useful when giving others accompaniment. The principle should increase the weak band through the digital voltage limit, and narrow the dynamic range of the sound, improve the perception of human vessels for sound loudness, is not simple and rude to improve the power of the speaker, which is also pair P115 speaker power A make up. The second functional upgrade is joined the speaker shutdown. This feature is very useful for career music performances and recording, because the electric piano is connected to other devices such as the mixer by the audio output interface, it is necessary to control the size of the audio output signal by adjusting the volume of the sounds. If you can't close the speaker of the piano, you will bring a lot of trouble to the performance and recording.


 

The third item is also the most practical functional upgrade, most of the features on the P115 and P105 need to be implemented in the way the function button on the panel is implemented in the form of the key combination operation, and some functions are not marked above the keys, and the YAMAHA is specially produced for P115. Free supporting App applications, users can connect P115 to iPad and iPhone (require additional connection lines), control P115's most feature, such as graphical tone selection, superposition, keyboard segmentation, Rhythm, piano accompaniment, measurement of the metronome, the selection of the reverberation, etc., and the user interface is very beautiful, which not only solves the trouble of some functional operations on the user P115, but also increases P115 users. Experience, it is equivalent to adding a big touch screen for P115, and will instantly solve problems in trouble on the function of function.

speaker:
The P115 speaker (speaker) is placed downward, and the treble unit is placed upward, and the P115 is adjusted on the P105, and the high frequency unit is adjusted, and the mounting position of the treble unit is also the same as the previous and medium and low tone units. Rising below the speaker net cover. I and the previous generation P105 AB contrast, found that the volume of P115 is slightly smaller than P105, but the high-frequency response of P115 will be more good, the profile of the piano is clearer, and the overall feels more gorgeous and more texture. P115 This speaker is impeccable in the same price product, the frequency is very smooth, the distortion is low, even if the volume is opened to the largest, there is no speaker popping phenomenon, and the body resonance does not often appear. Such speaker quality is It is very difficult to play the owner's electric piano. However, P115 is still a family conscriptor, double 7W speaker, is enough in the home environment, and if moving to a large-scale place or rehearsal, you still need a foreign speaker to get a larger volume and More than the effectiveness. In addition, P115 still retains the IAC smart sound field control function on P105. This function is essentially lifted low-frequency and high frequency EQ balance by opening the volume of the piano to the weakening, thereby remained at the small volume performance. You can make users better low and high frequencies. In the end, there is a point in particular that I mentioned that the low low tone unit of P115 is placed at the bottom of the body body and the direction is downward. This design structure itself is very reasonable in acoustic, but should pay attention when placing, if you pay attention to the piano Directly in a normal table or countertop, the medium bass unit is equivalent to being covered, which will have a certain impact on the sound transmission, so it is best to put the piano on the P115 matching hose or the best of the underlying keyboard frame. Sound effect.

 

 

 

 



interface:
The P115 has a two-stereo headphone interface, a standard MIDI IN / OUT interface, a USB TO HOST interface (USB-MIDI interface), left and right independent channel audio output interface, three pedal assembly interface, stand-alone push pedal interface. These interfaces have fully met the user's daily needs, and accurately meet the position of this piano.

 

Double headphone interface

 




to sum up:

P115 is the upgrade of P105, while maintaining a mature lookout process, it has improved in tone, and it does not increase the price. Yamaha P115 is used as a portable electric piano used in the family, especially in the price of 4,000 yuan, I feel that there is almost no deduction, its appearance, work, tone, and function are balanced, mature, if with the market If the product is landscape, all the projects of P115 should be able to discharge the top three, and it can be said that the P115 is perfectly reflected in the comprehensive strength of YAMAHA instruments, very good piano.
