Listen to Hundreds of Original Piano Performances On Your Keyboard Now

Over the years, Yamaha has produced over 400 PianoSoft Solo and PianoSoft Plus albums. These albums contain the world's greatest music arranged for either solo piano, or piano with MIDI accompaniment, and were recorded by some of today's greatest pianists. These albums were originally designed to be used with Yamaha's Disklavier digital player pianos, but we've been working hard to make sure that all of these albums are available in versions that will play perfectly on your keyboard, and now they are: each PianoSoft Solo and PianoSoft Plus album can now be played back perfectly on all compatible Yamaha keyboards.

What makes these albums so special? Unlike MIDI songs, which are created using meticulous programming, PianoSoft songs are real original recordings that play back on your keyboard exactly as they were performed. Each time you listen to a PianoSoft album, you'll hear precisely the same thing you would hear if the pianist was performing the songs on your keyboard.

Why weren't these albums available for use on Yamaha's keyboards until now? When Yamaha first started creating PianoSoft albums in the early 1990's, they were meant to be used solely with the player piano features on Disklavier digital pianos. Of course, a lot has changed in past twenty years - the piano sounds on Yamaha's keyboards are now so lifelike that there's no longer any reason to limit the enjoyment of PianoSoft recordings to Disklaviers alone. Today, all Yamaha keyboard owners can enjoy this exclusive, one of a kind music.

You can see a list of all PianoSoft albums here, or take a look at the newest albums we've added in the past few months.
