Since this article was written, these two models have been superseded by later YPT models.
Yamaha has introduced two new keyboards aimed at the home user. The YPT-210 and YPT-310 both offer 61 fully touch-sensitive keys, 32 notes of polyphony, Yamaha’s “Portable Grand” feature, Yamaha Education Suite including nine-step piano lesson, and a wide variety of instrument voices.
The lower-end YPT-210 features 375 voices including the stereo grand piano, XGLite voices, 12 drum kits, and sound effects.
The higher-end YPT-310 ups that voice count to 482, offering 108 standard and 361 XGLite voices, plus the drum kits and sound effects.
The 310 also adds a music database of over musical styles, plus a two-track music sequencer and Flash memory storage.
Both are aimed very much at the budding musician just starting out on a keyboard instrument, with plenty of exercises to aid learning as well as fun accompaniments for sounding like a pro during “time out”.
Usual Yamaha quality abounds in these keyboards which supersede the YPT keyboards from a few years back.
