For the more serious musician in your life, start them off right with the DGX205. It features 76 keys, double the power of the next model down and a professional pitch bend wheel for more expressive playing of brass and string instruments. The larger keyboard, important for professionals, is also valuable for aspiring musicians. In fact many music teachers encourage new students to get a keyboard that will grow with their needs. In addition, we've beefed up the "Yamaha Education Suite" (Y.E.S.) found on previous models with a new interactive version, Version IV, which includes "Your Tempo" and "Repeat & Learn" modes. The keyboard comes with 30 pre-loaded songs, Flash ROM internal storage for adding more, and 70 additional selections on an included CD-ROM. Simply connect the keyboard to your computer via the convenient USB connector and transfer songs to the keyboard for learning or listening. And for recording your own songs, the DGX205 has a built-in multi track sequencer and can store up to five performances at a time. Finally, performance assistant technology allows you to play along with songs and not make a mistake even if you're a complete beginner!

Learn to play with the Yamaha Education Suite IV
Keyboard lessons/songs are designed for learning one hand at a time

Your Tempo learning mode progress at your own pace

Repeat and Learn repeat difficult to learn sections

Lesson Grading monitors your progress as you practice each lesson

Lessons work with internal as well as downloaded song files

Chord Dictionary shows you how to play chords and tells you which chords you are playing by displaying the notes and chord name on the LCD screen

Learning to play songs moves to a new level of simplicity with the new "Your Tempo" learning mode. Call up a song, press left hand or right hand or both at once for two-handed learning, and the keyboard will speed up and slow down as you do, literally following you through the song. Once you get accustomed to where the notes are, you can keep the keyboard at one fixed tempo to learn correct timing. If you find one section of the song a little difficult, simply engage the "Repeat and Learn" button and the DGX205 will stay on that section, repeating it until you feel comfortable. Then move on to the next section. And to top it all off, the Yamaha Education Suite also works with Standard MIDI Files (SMF), allowing you to learn songs that you choose. To add songs to the keyboard, simply connect it to your PC via the convenient USB jack on the back, and head out on the Internet in search of your favorite songs and then transfer them to the keyboard.

PC Button & USB: This keyboard loves your computer
The DGX205 has many state of the art features to make connecting to your PC as quick and easy as possible. These features include the PC Button, which takes a snapshot of your MIDI settings so that you can instantly return to them with just the press of a single button, and a USB port for transferring song data from your computer. In addition, the USB port acts as a MIDI interface, freeing you from having to purchase other MIDI peripherals like cables and adapters to play music. Simply connect to your computer, open your favorite music software program and hit PLAY. That's it.

Portable Grand
Playing piano is fast and easy with Yamahas Portable Grand function. One dedicated button brings up a great sounding piano, stunningly rich and authentic in its sound and exceptionally responsive to your playing touch, as well as setting up the keyboard to play as a piano in full keyboard mode. On top of all this, a wealth of special piano-only "Pianist" styles, like Slow Rock and Stride, provide professional sounding piano accompaniment that change chords automatically as you do, while you play a piano melody on top!

General MIDI and Yamaha XGlite makes for great sound
The DGX205 comes equipped with 487 voices that include stereo-sampled Piano, a selection of Sweet! Voices including Trumpet, Flute, Pan Flute, Soprano and Tenor Saxes, Cool! Organ and Electric Piano, 10 Drum Kits and 2 Sound Effects Kits. Sweet! Voices are special voices from Yamaha that reproduce all the natural expression and vibrato of their respective acoustic instruments. Cool! Voices feature long samples of electronically amplified instruments.

And for the utmost in compatibility, the DGX205 is both General MIDI (GM) and XGlite capable. The Internet has thousands of MIDI song files available and you can rest assured that your DGX205 will be able to competently reproduce these files.

Mix and match
You are also able to create sound mixes of your own using Layer and Split modes. Split mode allows you to have two different sounds on the keyboard at the same time, like piano on the right and bass on the left. Layer mode allows you to combine two sounds across the keyboard range. For example, you could play piano and strings at the same time. Youre only limited by your imagination.

Performance Assistant Technology Now anyone (yes, anyone!) can play
Performance assistant technology is a new feature from Yamaha that guarantees that you cant play a wrong note or chord. Heres how it works. Select a song and press the Performance Assistant button. Play the keyboard any notes you like. Every note you play will fit the music! If you move up the keyboard, the pitch goes up. If you move down, the pitch goes down. Play a perfect arpeggio, or play chords in time with the music, or really "go for it" and play a solo. How about stride piano? No matter what you play, as long as the Performance Assistant button is "on", youre "on". Imagine being able to give a concert to your friends or relatives the very first day that you bring this remarkable keyboard home. Well, with the DGX205 and performance assistant technology, you can! This feature also works with any XF MIDI files you download into the keyboard (for example, search for XF at

Stereo (Not just 2 Speakers)

32-note Polyphony
What's polyphony, you ask? Simply put, polyphony is how many notes a keyboard can reproduce simultaneously. The DGX205 has 32-note polyphony allowing you to play intricate arrangements and dense musical passages.

Keyboard Styles and the One Touch Setting
The DGX205 comes with 135 built-in styles, waiting for you to play along with. It's just like having a built-in band.
