Designed for gigging keyboardists, the YC61 features a 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 keyboard? You build an organ engine the Yamaha way, from the ground up. The 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 can’t. Whether you’re 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 we’ve 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. It’s no wonder more players reach for Yamaha keyboards than any other.
YC61 isn’t just designed to be played. It’s 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, it’s built to last, like the company that stands behind it.
