Yamahas Most Affordable Portable Keyboards YPT-200 and YPT-300 Include Learning Exercises, General MIDI Capability, Sequencing

Buena Park, CA — Yamaha’s Consumer Products Division adds to its successful line of affordable keyboards with the introduction of the YPT-200 and YPT-300. These new entry-level keyboards feature 61 piano-sized keys, 32 notes of polyphony and an ultra-realistic Yamaha Stereo Grand Piano voice. Both models also include the built-in, upgraded Yamaha Education Suite version 5 (Y.E.S. 5) with exercises, interactive “Listen and Learn” lessons and a chord dictionary.

Designed for the beginner or music hobbyist, the new portables represent the first models in their price points to include complete General MIDI compatibility (YPT-200) and sequencing (YPT-300)–functions that up until recently could only be found on higher-priced units and professional workstations.

The YPT-200 includes 134 voices, 100 styles and 102 preset songs. With General MIDI compatibility, the YPT-200 is computer-friendly with most software and Internet applications.

The YPT-300 features 482 voices (including Yamaha’s XGlite voice set), 106 styles and 102 preset songs. One breakthrough is a five-track sequencer that allows the user to record his or her own original music. Other refinements include “Full” and “Split” keyboard functions, DSP effects, the Sound Effects Kit with a dedicated panel button, and Flash ROM–perfect for connecting to a computer and transferring MIDI content from the Internet.

The YPT-200 (Street Price $99.95) and YPT-300 (Street Price $149.95) will be available in late Spring 2005.
