The Disklavier, Yamaha’s adaptation of the player piano, has been used by artists in performances and uses digital data instead of old-fashioned paper rolls. The newest evolution of the Disklavier, the Mark IV Series, includes features that introduce the model for use as a full-function entertainment center.

Using Yamaha’s library of PianoSoft software titles, including the exclusive library of Smart PianoSoft™ titles, the piano can play along with many audio CD titles from your favorite artists. To use the system, insert a CD along with the corresponding Yamaha disk to hear the vocals and fully orchestrated accompaniment on the onboard sound system. The piano part will play along live, in synchronicity.

The Mark IV can control the entire system, wirelessly and using one of two full color, touchscreen wi-fi controllers—a PDA-style pocket remote or a 10.4-inch touchscreen LCD tablet remote.

The piano integrates with standard or house-based systems, enabling the piano’s outputs to be configured so that home speakers located near the piano produce only the backup orchestration, while speakers in another part of the house add a digital piano sound.

SmartKey Technology™ can assist users in playing a song, even if it’s the user’s first time playing—the Disklavier cues you by moving the correct key, and then waits for the user to strike it. CueTIME™ software offers orchestrated arrangements that automatically follow the user’s pace. For privacy, courtesy or low-volume practice, the Disklavier includes a Quiet Mode that replaces the acoustic piano action with a digital piano sound users can hear through headphones.

The Disklavier Mark IV even has the ability to capture your videotaped piano performance and replay it with the piano playing and video image perfectly in sync on any TV or monitor.
