Classic & Elegant design: An authentic, expressive piano experience, YDP-144 offers grand piano-like experience, featuring the flagship Yamaha CFX concert grand sound and realistic Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) keyboard.
The powerful tone of the acclaimed CFX concert grand piano. Newly sampled for the YDP-144, the Yamaha flagship 9' CFX concert grand piano offers sparkling highs and a powerful resonant bass combined in a sound that projects to the furthest reaches of any concert hall. The CFX was played by the winner of the prestigious International Chopin Competition in 2010, and has since gained recognition as one of the greatest concert grands of modern times.
Authentic acoustic piano playability: With an 88-key piano action and synthetic ivory and ebony keys, the Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano, from the heavy feel in the lower register to a lighter touch in the upper octaves. The GH3 features a three-sensor configuration that accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard to provide a grand piano-style response and feel, allowing rapid note repetition and authentic expressive control.
Designed for your personal enjoyment: The YDP-144 maintains a rich and balanced sound at any volume level you choose to play at. Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) adjusts the balance of bass and treble automatically to allow players to enjoy a full sound even at a lower volume. Stereophonic Optimizer lets players enjoy the natural, spacious sound experienced when sitting in front of an acoustic piano, even when wearing headphones. When using this function, Voices sampled from acoustic pianos are perceived to come from the body of the instrument itself, not your headphones, providing a comfortable, natural experience.
Smart Pianist: Get more with the Smart Pianist App. Enjoy the piano more with Smart Pianist, a dedicated app that adds a beautiful graphic interface and a variety of incredible features to your compatible Yamaha digital piano.

Play your favorite songs: Smart Pianist scans the audio songs loaded in your Music Library, analyzes the chord progressions and then displays them for you on the screen of your smart device. Play along as the chords scroll by, all while hearing the song play back through your instrument's speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play.
