The Best Portable Digital Piano
The Yamaha P-255 contemporary digital piano is for all musicians looking for an instrument suitable for both serious practice and live performance. Thanks to its portable design and built-in speaker system, the P-255 can be played in any place or setting you desire, with or without external amplification. And with the first-of-its-kind Controller App for iOS, you can customize your piano sound or quickly adjust your favorite settings with touch-screen ease-of-use.
The P-255 uses the Pure CF Sound Engine to produce its piano Voices. As the only digital piano in our P-Series to feature the following three functions, the P-255 can also recreate the characteristic acoustics of the grand piano sound in a more realistic fashion.
P-255 Controller App for iOS
The free P-255 Controller App for iPhone or iPad can be downloaded from the App Store here. With it, you can control a wide range of the digital piano’s functions with an easy-to-use, touch-screen interface. This visual approach to configuring the P-255 makes it easy to try out functions that you may not have considered using before. Graphically choose which Voices to layer, adjust the split point, manage songs you record to a USB device and more, all with the touch of a finger. You can also use the app to store your favorite settings and recall them instantly whenever needed. Explore the settings and sounds of the P-255 even before yours arrives at home.
Meticulous Acoustic Design
The P-255’s circular speakers vibrate in a highly natural manner to produce a well-balanced tone. Thanks to this design, lower notes in particular have a much richer sound than on pianos with oval speakers. The P-255 also features built-in tweeters aimed directly at the performer, so that higher notes sound brighter. Also, the pair of 15W amps built into each P-255 can deliver a very powerful sound.
Sound Boost Button Instantly Provides More Volume With Greater Presence
At the touch of a button, you can easily make the sound of the P-255 louder and enhance its presence. Does the audience have difficulty hearing your piano playing over the mix of a band or small combo? No problem. Sound Boost allows for a clear-sounding performance that will cut through any mix. This feature affects both the internal speakers and external amplification.
Use EQ Sliders to Match the Sound to Personal Taste or the Performance Environment
The P-255 is equipped with EQ sliders—one each for the low, mid and high frequency ranges. By simply moving these sliders, you can easily adjust the digital piano‘s sound to your liking or to better suit the current song or acoustic environment. You can produce bright and shimmering tones that are clear and highly present or powerful sounds that pack a punch
