The P150 features a Concert Grand piano sound that accurately captures the natural characteristics of an acoustic grand piano, including the full-bodied bass tones and reverberating high notes. Also included are various electric pianos, vibes, organs, strings and bass. The voices are generated using Yamaha's patented AWM (advanced wave memory) sound generation technology.
Action Effect II keyboard with adjustable sensitivity
The P150's full-range 88-key, weighted action piano keyboard incorporates Yamaha's unique Action Effect II keyboard technology, which gives it the genuine feel and response of an acoustic piano keyboard. You can adjust the keyboard sensivity to Normal, Soft, Hard, or Fixed settings to suit your playing style and preference.
High quality digital signal processing
The P150 has a built-in three-band graphic panel EQ to adjust the overall sound in the low, middle, and high ranges. This feature gives you realtime control over the timbre of the selected instrument voice. The three stereo reverb effect types; ROOM, STAGE, and HALL, complete with adjustable depth settings, let you apply just the right amount of acoustic ambiance to the voices. Three stereo modulation effects; CHORUS, SYMPHONIC, and TREMOLO, complete with adjustable speed settings, give you a wide variety of modulation effect options. CHORUS is a modulated delay which effectively makes a sound like more than one instruments being played simultaneously. SYMPHONIC is a more pronounced chorus effect. TREMOLO is a rotating speaker effect.

The versatile P150 gives you a variety of performance options with its Single voice play, Dual voice play and Split voice play modes.
