Yamaha P140 Series Keyboards

In the market for a compact, contemporary-looking, computer-compatible electronic piano? Yamaha’s P140 series keyboards are worth a look, featuring 88 weighted keys, 64 notes of polyphony and 14 realistic voices, each with three tonal variations. In addition to a host of onboard effects, the P140 pianos also include a twotrack adjustable tempo sequencer that allows for recording, practice play along and overdubbing a second part. And the pianos can store your works in progress via integrated Flash-ROM. yamaha.com

It’s a treat for old-school synth enthusiast, boasting a 100-percent analog signal path with true analog controls, 100 user editable presets and a 37- note keyboard with +/-2 Octave Transpose. Act quick and you might snatch up on the first 1,200 Phatties-each one individually numbered as a Bob Moog Tribute Edition synth. Moogmusic.com
