Reinventing the Stage Keyboard
Designed for performing and session keyboardists, the YC73 features the newly designed Virtual Circuitry Modelling Organ engine with physical drawbars, extensive real time control and authentic Acoustic/Electric Piano and FM synth sound.
Yamaha's proprietary Virtual Circuitry Modelling 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, the YC73 gives you authentic keyboard sounds for any genre of music.
The intuitive interface gives you fast and easy splits, layers, and sound-shaping directly from the front panel. Proving that compact doesn’t have to mean complex. It also features a built-in USB stereo audio and MIDI interface for Mac, PC, and iOS. With a single USB cable, you can record the YC73 audio and MIDI to a DAW and play and monitor virtual instruments.
The Yamaha YC73 utilizes:
73 Balanced Hammer Action keys
VCM Organ, AWM2, and FM tone generators
128 note polyphony 32 effects, reverb, 3 band EQ
Yamaha puts your favorite classic organ sounds in one powerful, stage keyboard. YC models three organ vintages - just out of the box, well-travelled 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
The Yamaha YC brings you the authentic sounds of classic rotary speakers with no maintenance required. Choose from two faithfully modelled rotary speaker profiles - warm and full or dirty and aggressive - and adjust top or bottom rotor speed for total control. Based on customer feedback, Yamaha added a new “Studio” Rotary Speaker, featuring a wider stereo field, increased low rotor and high horn separation, as well as an increased presence to cut through mixes.
VCM re-creates the sound and behaviour of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors by modelling the circuits down to the original analog component level.
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. Helping to broaden your creativity are three new FM organ types – titled F4, F5, and F6. These delve deeper into FM synthesis by adding modulators – or operators – that add upper harmonics to carriers, yet do not sound. The user interface of drawbars, coupled with modulators, create vastly new approaches to the traditional drawbar organ experience, bringing the traditional drawbar concept into the 21st century.
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.
YC73 BALANCED ELECTRIC PIANO ACTION
YC73 has a weighted and balanced action that models the unmistakable feel of an electric piano. With an E-to-E keyboard and a touch that falls between graded acoustic piano and authentic organ action, it’s quite possibly the most versatile YC of all.
Yamaha 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.
The Yamaha YC73 comes in at an incredible 13.4 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.
The Yamaha YC73 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 of any kind.
