Overview

Yamaha Stage Keyboard YC88

Designed for performance, YC Stage Keyboards feature Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) Organ technology with physical Drawbars, extensive real-time control, and authentic acoustic / electric piano and FM synth sound.

A musician with a strong affinity for the piano and/or even an appropriate education will appreciate the YC88’s “Natural Wood Graded Hammer” keyboard. In addition, the excellent tuning of the keyboard to the sound generation enables a dynamic that comes very close to playing on an acoustic piano.

Nevertheless, the YC88 offers all the important sounds from the immense range of the YC Series beyond the excellent classical pianos and e.pianos. For example, when playing an organ, a second keyboard can be integrated via MIDI - all other sounds can be controlled, too. Individual assignments for external keyboards can be saved for each individual Live Set.

Features

SOUND

When it comes to versatility, YC is a virtuoso. Featuring premium keyboard sound with more possibilities than ever. Choose from authentic Yamaha grand/upright pianos, electric pianos and keyboards to a tonewheel organ with rotary speaker, synths, acoustic sounds and more. Our proprietary 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 can’t. It’s like having an incredible sounding keyboard with everything, to go.

How do you reproduce the warm, authentic sound of an organ in a stage keyboard? You build an organ engine the Yamaha way, from the ground up. Yamaha puts your favorite classic organ sounds in one powerful, stage keyboard. YC models three organ vintages - just out of the box, well-traveled and character-rich vintage. Need more? Go under the hood to adjust key click, leakage, rotary speaker speed and more to get the one-of-a-kind organ tone you've been searching for.

VCM ROTARY SPEAKER

YC brings you the authentic sounds of classic rotary speakers with no maintenance required. Choose from two faithfully modeled rotary speaker profiles - warm and full or dirty and aggressive - and adjust top or bottom rotor speed for total control.

VCM re-creates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors by modeling the circuits down to the original analog component level.

FM ORGAN

In 1983, Yamaha introduced the iconic sounds of FM (Frequency Modulation) synthesis to the world with the launch of the synthesizer DX7. Now YC brings FM synthesis to the organ for a new generation of players. Simply switch to FM Organ and your drawbars control 8 FM Operators that send a pure sound with massive low end. Add rotary speaker or amp sim effects for character and vibe. Intuitive controls make it easy to discover new sounds. Or recreate classic transistor organ tones from warm to reedy to buzzy by choosing one of three popular FM Organ modes.

TOUCH

At Yamaha, we put everything we’ve learned over the last 100 years into everything you touch. Whether you prefer the natural feel of a graded acoustic piano, the balanced touch of an electric piano or a waterfall keyboard with authentic organ action, there’s a YC that’s right for you. It’s no wonder more players reach for Yamaha keyboards than any other.

The natural wood keys and graded action of the YC88 reproduce the weight and response of a grand piano right down to the feel of the heavy or light hammers in the low and high ends. YC88 also features a triple sensor action for pianists accustomed to the response and speed of grand pianos. You get the touch of a Yamaha acoustic piano with the unmatched versatility of the YC.

DESIGN

YC Keyboards aren’t just designed to be played. They’re 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, they’re built to last, like the company that stands behind them.

The nine drawbars on the YC have the footages and ratcheting you expect in an organ. But there’s 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. It’s like having a virtual set of drawbars to give you more sounds, more flexibility and more choices than you ever thought possible in a stage keyboard.

DIRECT, IMMEDIATE AND TOTAL SOUND CONTROL

YC 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 versatility doesn’t have to be complex.

MOBILITY

YC88 weighs 41 lb, 0 oz (18.6 kg), YC73 is 29 lb, 9 oz (13.4 kg) and YC61 comes in at an incredible 15 pounds, 10 oz. (7.1 kg). Which makes them compact and light enough for you to be your own roadie. But with a sound that players who can afford roadies will appreciate.

COMPUTER/iOS

YC features a built-in USB stereo audio and MIDI interface for Mac, PC and iOS devices. With a single USB cable, you can record the YC audio and MIDI to a DAW and play and monitor virtual instruments.
