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.
