Yamaha Smart Pianist App Features

1. Chord Tracker

The Chord Tracker feature automatically detects the chords of any song in your music library, allowing you to play along with your favorite tunes effortlessly. Leveraging the power of Yamaha’s “Audio to Chord” technology, it evaluates the songs in your smart device’s Music Library and creates equivalent chord charts. This feature is perfect not only for beginners who are learning to play chords but also for experienced musicians who want to explore new arrangements and chord progressions.

2. Voice Selection

With the Smart Pianist App, you can easily access and customize the various voices (instrument sounds) available on your Yamaha digital piano. From grand pianos to electric pianos, organs, and strings, the app allows you to experiment with different combinations and layering effects. Additionally, the app lets you adjust parameters such as reverberation from echoes in performance venues and other factors that affect the sound of the piano. By utilizing the layer function to overlay voices, or the split function to play different voices with each hand, you can unlock endless creative possibilities.

3. Metronome and Rhythm Functions

The built-in metronome feature of the Smart Pianist App helps you practice your timing and develop your sense of rhythm. With a wide range of tempo settings and adjustable time signatures, you can tailor the app to your personal practice needs. However, more specific information about rhythm functions within the app was not readily available at the time of this review. You may want to delve deeper into the app to discover additional rhythm-related tools and functionalities.

4. Song Recorder

The Smart Pianist App enables you to record your performances directly onto your smartphone or tablet. You can make necessary settings such as Voice and Style selection before you begin recording. The app also allows you to choose the recording format, offering both Audio and MIDI options. This feature makes it easy to track your progress, share your music with friends and family, or even create your own compositions.

5. Sheet Music Display

Through the Smart Pianist App, you can access and display sheet music for the built-in songs on your Yamaha digital piano. This feature is especially useful for those learning to read music or practicing sight-reading skills. Furthermore, the app provides practice features such as the Audio to Score function for Audio Songs, a guide function, repeat playback (A-B Repeat), and parts on/off where you can mute the part (Right/Left/Backing) to try practicing that part on your own. These added functionalities can significantly enhance your practice sessions and improve your understanding of music.

6. Backing Band Accompaniment

The Smart Pianist app, particularly for CSP series pianos, comes with a dynamic backing band accompaniment feature. This feature provides rhythmic and instrumental support, enabling you to play your favorite songs as if you were playing with a full band. This function turns solitary practice into a more engaging experience, as if you were jamming with other musicians.

7. Variety of Piano Lesson Pieces

The app gives access to a variety of piano lesson pieces that users can play back. This includes preset songs and commercially available songs. However, further detailed information about this feature could not be found during the research.

8. Utility Settings

The Smart Pianist app allows you to make global settings related to the entire instrument. This includes tuning, keyboard settings, pedal settings, and microphone settings. This comprehensive customization can help users adjust their instrument to match their personal preferences and playing style.
