USB storage devices. Yamaha cannot guarantee operation of USB storage
devices that you purchase. Before purchasing USB storage devices, please
consult your Yamaha dealer, or an authorized Yamaha distributor (see
list at end of the Owner's Manual) for advice.
Lyric, chord and notation display
Have you ever played a song and wondered what it would look like as
sheet music? The YPG-535 can display the score to a song whether it
comes from the Internet, the internal selections or ones that you record
yourself, and the pages scroll automatically when a song is played back
– no more page turning! And for singers, the screen also displays
chords and lyrics to XF compatible songs. For examples, please visit www.yamahamusicsoft.com.
And for those that want to learn to play, notation adds a new dimension
to the Yamaha Education Suite, allowing you to hear a song while you
follow the notes in the display.
Ease of operation
There are many tools in the keyboard that make it easy to be a power user from the first day you own the keyboard.
- Expandable Music Database: Complete keyboard setups
by song title. The keyboard selects an appropriate voice for the right
hand melody, the correct musical style and the correct tempo. Simply
call up a song title and start playing.
- One Touch Setting (OTS): Provides you with a
recommended voice with effects for each Style. For example, on a jazz
style OTS might be piano, for a Latin style it might be acoustic guitar
and for a rock style it might be a guitar with overdrive etc.
- Registration Memory: Set the keyboard up just the
way you like and take a digital snapshot by memorizing it to one of the
Registration buttons. Load and save up to 16 Registrations to User
memory. The Registration buttons are conveniently located just above the
- Performance Assistant Technology: Performance
assistant technology is a feature from Yamaha that guarantees that you
can't play a wrong melody note or chord. Here's how it works. Select a
song, press the Performance Assistant button Chord Mode and play the
keyboard – any notes you like. Every note you play will fit the music!
If you move up the keyboard, the pitch goes up. If you move down, the
pitch goes down. Play a perfect arpeggio, or play chords in time with
the music, or really "go for it" and play a solo. As long as performance
assistant is "on ", you're " on". Imagine being able to give a concert
to your friends or relatives the very first day that you bring this
remarkable keyboard home. Well, with the YPG-535 and performance
assistant technology, you can! This keyboard is the first in the line to
offer Chord/Free Mode in addition to Chord Mode described above.
Chord/Free Mode allows those that have learned a melody with their right
hand to have the keyboard correct the notes of their left hand. This
allows you to concentrate on one hand at a time while learning. Play the
correct notes with the right and any notes with the left and you're
making beautiful music. In addition to working with any of the internal
songs with chords, this feature also works with XF MIDI files. For
examples, please visit www.yamahamusicsoft.com
- Chord: No matter where or what you play, the result
will be musical, well-balanced sound. This type offers the greatest
freedom, allowing you to play anything with both your left and right
- Chord/Free: If you can play simple right-hand
melodies but have trouble with left hand chords, this is the type for
you. The Chord type applies to only the left-hand section of the
keyboard, allowing you to easily play chords to support the melody you
are playing with your right hand.
- Melody: This type lets you play the melody of the
selected song by playing any keys with just one finger. Start playing
melodies right away, even if you've never played a keyboard instrument
- Chord/Melody: Play the melody of the selected song
with one finger on the right-hand section of the keyboard, and play
chords on the left-hand section of the keyboard using the Chord type.
Yamaha Education Suite: Helps you learn to play
The YPG-535 has 30 built-in songs plus 70 more on included CD-ROM for
you to learn to play using the Yamaha Education Suite. The songs are
separated into left and right hand parts, providing 7 levels of lessons
plus a convenient chord dictionary.
- Three keyboard lessons for each hand
- Waiting Mode – stops the playback of a song until you find the correct note and then continues
- Your Tempo Mode – Learn to play the correct notes with the
correct timing. Song playback tempo will vary to match the speed you are
playing at. The song will slow down when you play wrong notes, so you
can learn at your own pace.
- Minus One Mode – Here's where you can perfect your technique. The
song will play at the normal tempo, minus the part you have chosen to
play. Play along while listening to the song.
- Lesson Grading – monitors your progress as you practice each lesson and gives you a grade.
- Repeat and Learn – the song location will move
back four measures from the point at which you pressed the button, and
playback will begin after a one-measure count-in. This section will
repeat allowing you to practice until perfect!
- Chord Dictionary – shows you how to play chords
and tells you which chords you are playing by displaying the notes and
chord names on the LCD screen.
6-track sequencer: record your own music
Imagine capturing your child's first performance or writing and
recording your own songs. With the YPG-535, you have the equivalent of a
built-in multi-track recorder to record one or multiple instrument
parts at a time and assign each part to a different track. Six tracks
are provided to accommodate sophisticated melodies, chord accompaniment
and rhythm parts.
- 2 Way Speaker System
Separate woofers and tweeters deliver sounds with clarity and precision for more lifelike instrument voices.
- Bass Boost System
A special port on each speaker adds a powerful impact to bass sound reproduction.
- Stereo (Not just 2 Speakers)
We all know that
stereo sound adds realistic character and spatial depth. But how can you
tell if the portable keyboard you're looking to purchase is stereo or
not? With Yamaha, the answer is simple. All Yamaha Portable Keyboards
are true stereo.
- Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
Enhances sound quality with sophisticated digital effects like Harmony, Reverb & Chorus.
- Advanced Wave Memory (AWM)
Yamaha Advanced Wave Memory technology delivers amazingly realistic sound.
Full Keyboard Mode
The YPG-535 delivers on its piano theme with a special mode of
fingering called Full Keyboard Mode. This allows the player to play the
keyboard like a piano; for example a chord with the right hand and bass
notes with the left. When using the accompaniment feature, the virtual
band will follow these chords. Traditional portable keyboards normally
require you to chord on the left side of the keyboard, in the bass
section, which is foreign to most piano players. The YPG-535 is also
capable of this mode, for those who prefer it.
Easy Song Arranger: You're the conductor
You can change the "feel", or arrangement, of songs by simply
pressing the Easy Song Arranger button, allowing you to re-mix any MIDI
file. For example, you can try your favorite song with a Rock feel, Hip
Hop, then Jazz. It's fast, powerful and one-button simple.
Master EQ: Tailor your sound
Five different master equalizer (EQ) settings are provided to give
you the best possible sound when listening through different
reproduction systems - the instrument's internal speakers, headphones,
or an external speaker system. You're in control.
Realistic Sounding Voices
The YPG-535 comes equipped with 127 panel voices, 12 drum/SFX kits plus 361 XGlite voices. Special voices include Sweet! Clarinet, Trumpet, Muted Trumpet, Flute, Pan Flute, Soprano & Tenor Saxes, Trombone, Cool! Voices including Galaxy Electric Piano, Suitcase Electric Piano, Electric Piano, Organ and Rotor Organ and Live! Voices including Grand Piano, Warm Grand Piano and Orchestra.
- Sweet! Voices reproduce all the natural expression and vibrato of their respective acoustic instruments
- Cool! Voices feature long samples of electronically amplified instruments
- Dual Mode allows you to combine two voices across the keyboard at the same time — for example piano and strings.
- Split Mode allows you to select a different voice
for each hand — for example piano for your right and bass for your left.
The combinations are limited only by your imagination.
32 Note Polyphony and 16 Part Multi Timbrel
In electronic keyboards, the more sounds made at the same time –
polyphony – the more memory is needed. Obviously, more is always better,
because too little polyphony can cause dropouts in dense passages of
music. The YPG-535 has 32 notes of polyphony and will play back 16
different parts or sounds at once (16-part multi timbrel); enough for
the most demanding needs.
Yamaha has long been a world leader in digital signal processing
technology. In fact, Yamaha professional audio products are found in
most professional recording studios around the world. The YPG-535 takes
full advantage of this know-how, giving you an extensive range of nine,
top-quality reverb effects that simulate playing in everything from a
small room to a large spacious concert hall and four chorus effects that
add richness to electric pianos and guitars in particular. You'll also
find 26 types of Harmony effects for your melody part.
Just what the teacher ordered! A fully adjustable metronome is just a button push away.
Auto Accompaniment Styles
In addition to the 100 songs mentioned above, the YPG-535 also has
auto accompaniment styles that “follow” your playing. Simply select a
style of music from the 160 built-in styles (example Rock) and start
playing. The YPG-535 will create a backup band (bass, drums, strings,
guitar etc.) and “follow” you through the song. You can play your songs
and try different genres of music. And if you can't find the right style
for your song, you can go to www.yamahamusicsoft.com , preview from the selection, purchase and transfer it to your keyboard (PC only).
Portable Grand: Industry's best piano
You're never more than a button push away from the most realistic
piano sound in portable keyboards today. One press of the Portable Grand
button resets the entire keyboard to a stereo-sampled piano — perfect
for when it's time to practice. Yamaha is known around the world for the
quality of our acoustic pianos and this attention to detail is evident
as you enjoy the warmth and clarity of the YPG-535 Portable Grand piano.
And of course, the keyboard includes a Sustain Pedal jack on the back
for practicing and playing piano pieces.
The YPG-535 features USB MIDI, Sustain Pedal jack and a Headphone jack for private practice.
