The entire yamaha dgx is a series of digital pianos which make creating, producing, and recording music extremely easy by involving the elements of a digital workstation with the working of an actual piano. Nowadays, however, a digital piano like the yamaha dgx is easily able to produce many more sounds except the basic piano sound. It’s all a matter of pressing the right keys in order to generate the type of sound you want once you’re done setting the type of sound you want added in your song. Due to the extremely easy and free compatibility of such digital pianos it is extremely easy for artists to create new music easily without even having to hire other musicians or people to help play the organs or the part. The entire lineup consisting of the various DGX series digital pianos are often referred to as YGP-DGX where the YPG stands for ‘Yamaha Portable Grand’ and the DGX encompasses the essentials like ‘Digital Grand’. Each year, and sometimes even bi-annually, Yamaha releases new models of the entire Digital Grand lineup with new features and added functionality over the previous ones and a new product code is given to them like DGX-520, DGX-550, DGX-650, DGX-630, etc. These digital pianos even come in different colors to match the personality or vibes of the artist purchasing these models.
More about the DGX series
The easiest way to accurately describe the entire yamaha dgx series is through saying that the DGX is a professional digital piano featuring a full keyboard with a rather specific weighted hammer action. Alongside the above mentioned, the keyboard also has a polyphony of 128 notes without missing out on any singular note. The sole reason these details are important because the damped out resonance helps create a rather authentic and genuine interaction of strings. This in turn means that the built-in stereos will offer a purer sound of the note so played. Alongside the LCD-dot display, it offers around 100 different tunes and songs which can be included while creating a beat alongside featuring around a 100 sounds of different presets. While some lower end models, or the previous generation models might not provide customers and consumers with a similar experience, it is important to note that they weren’t exactly top models and over-time obsolescence of previous technology is rather common.
Pros and cons
The pros of owning or testing any model of the DGX series is that they all provide you with a very rich sound experience, something which is rather hard to find in most other digital pianos these days. The pure sound you get to hear after you play your note is extremely blissful. They also are incredibly easy to use.
However, the cons include the difficult to navigate through menu interface. As a matter of fact, several musicians and professionals have exclaimed it to be rather difficult to select the right tunes or tempos they needed for their songs.
