Best keybed feel and tone in P-Series history
The P515 features a Yamaha NWX Natural Wood X keyboard with escapement. It has synthetic ebony and imitation ivory keys to give you a real piano feel, the sound comes from a combination of CFX and the Bosendorfer Imperial Music Awards, a new sound and a new feel, once you touch it, you can't extricate yourself.
The Yamaha P515 uses samples from two custom acoustic pianos for the most authentic sound. The CFX is Yamaha's flagship standard concert grand piano, the result of 19 years of research and development. Combining traditional craftsmanship with modern engineering, Yamaha examines every element of the piano to discover and capture how every detail affects the sound.
Bosendorfer has been making pianos since 1828 and is one of the oldest piano manufacturers in the world. Bosendorfer pianos are full of warmth and rich tones that inspired composers such as Bartok and Debussy. When using headphones with the P515, the binaurally sampled sound is automatically modulated with no additional setup required.
In a real piano, the sound resonates throughout the body of the instrument, producing a rich and warm sound. Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) on the P515 optimizes resonance and can make each note unique to faithfully simulate every nuance of your technique, VRM also calculates how hard you play and Add appropriate decay to each note.
These sampled sounds were recorded with a special microphone to pick up the sound from the musician's position while playing. We guarantee that when you're playing, you'll quickly forget you're using headphones.
