The Yamaha YC73 packs all the character of vintage combo organs and more into a gig-friendly, compact 73-key stage piano. Using Yamaha’s proprietary Virtual Circuit Modeling, the YC73 is one of the most lifelike-sounding analog organ emulations on the market, and it comes stocked with a large selection of additional instrument voices and killer onboard effects. The YC73 is designed for today’s performing keyboardist; its weighted/balanced keys and physical drawbars are highly responsive and rewarding to play and manipulate. While the YC73 is vintage in character, it boasts all the functionality and reliability of a modern digital instrument, with vast customization options and computer audio integration for audio recording, playback, and MIDI control.
Endless sonic possibilities
The YC73 is brimming with the signature tones of Yamaha’s classic line of combo organs — super-fat low end, thick organ swells, mellow emanations, and biting leads, along with the inimitable sound of a rotary speaker. With its drawbar controls, the YC73 presents a sizable sonic palette with tons of tweakability. Layer up a fat organ pad. Pull back the bars for a focused sound. Dial up the percussion. Beyond the incredible organ sound, Yamaha’s updated Stage OS and the YC73’s Dual Keys section give you control over a slew of instrument voices, including acoustic and electric pianos, FM synth, strings, and brass. And, the YC73’s nine onboard effects, such as vibrato/chorus, reverb, delay, and drive, make for endless musical possibilities.
Stellar feel and playability
The experience of playing a drawbar organ is visceral and interactive, and the YC73 provides a great feel to inspire expressive performances. The physical drawbars and intuitive control surface make it easy to shape sounds on the fly without getting bogged down in programming patches. Yamaha’s Seamless Sound Switching lets you change patches while holding notes without the sound cutting off. With an action that’s neither too light nor too heavy, the YC73’s responsive, weighted/balanced keyboard is designed for musicians who are accustomed to playing all types of virtual instruments on one keyboard. And its ideal 6-octave range ensures you’ll have access to the all the notes you need during a performance — without the extra weight and bulk of keys you never use.
Proprietary Virtual Circuit Modeling
The foundation of the YC73’s rich and detailed sound is Yamaha’s Virtual Circuit Modeling (VCM), which digitally emulates analog circuits down to the individual component level. Yamaha has been working with physical modeling since the development of their VL1 Virtual Acoustic Synthesizer, which was released in 1993. Over the ensuing decades, they have continually refined their proprietary modeling technology and incorporated it into iconic, cutting-edge products that deliver stunningly realistic digital emulations of traditional instruments. The YC73’s VCM organ engine mimics the analog topology of Yamaha’s classic organs for astonishingly accurate tone, vibe, behavior, and realistic rotary speaker sounds that will transport you to a blissful vintage dreamland with all the benefits of digital sound processing.
