We talked with Yamaha keyboard guru Blake Angelos, who always brings amazing chops to his demos. In the video, he digs deep into the details of the YC61’s organ sounds and features, its physically modeled rotary speaker effect and its stage keyboard options.
The YC61 covers a lot of keyboard territory – with grand pianos, electric pianos and synth sounds – but the features and physical controls are tailored to keyboard players that want a stage keyboard that really lets them show off their organ chops. If your style leans more towards piano and electric piano sounds, though, check out our video with Blake demoing Yamaha’s CP88 & CP73 stage pianos.
