REINVENTING THE STAGE KEYBOARD
Designed for gigging keyboardists, the YC61 features newly designed Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) Organ engine with physical drawbars, extensive real time control and authentic Acoustic/Electric Piano and FM synth sound.
How do you reproduce the warm, authentic sound of an organ in a compact stage piano? You build an organ engine the Yamaha way, from the ground up. Our proprietary Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) recreates the circuits of vintage analog EQs, compressors and phasers right down to the transistors and resistors to capture the subtleties other digital simulations canít. Whether youíre playing grand piano, upright piano, electric piano or more, YC61 gives you authentic keyboard sounds for any genre of music.
At Yamaha, we put everything weíve learned over the last 100 years into everything you touch. With a totally redesigned waterfall keyboard and the perfect action, the YC61 feels the way an authentic organ was meant to feel. Itís no wonder more players reach for Yamaha keyboards than any other.
YC61 isnít just designed to be played. Itís made to be bumped, jostled, scratched, crammed in a van, stuffed in an overhead bin and adored by players and fans, gig after gig. In short, itís built to last, like the company that stands behind it.
The nine drawbars on the YC61 have the footages and ratcheting you expect in an organ. But thereís more to our drawbars than meets the eye. See-through drawbar stops with customizable LED light color make it easy to see differences between simulated upper and lower configurations and play in split mode. Itís like having a virtual set of drawbars to give you more sounds, more flexibility and more choices than you ever thought possible in a compact stage keyboard.
DIRECT, IMMEDIATE AND TOTAL SOUND CONTROL
YC61 is made for long jams, not long menus. The intuitive interface gives you fast and easy splits, layers and sound-shaping directly from the front panel. Proving that compact doesnít have to mean complex.
