I think it fair to say that the CP73 and CP88 have been a runaway success for Yamaha. Great built quality, excellent control layout and beautiful sound combined to make an excellent stage piano.

One of the many great things about the CP series is that Yamaha designed them to be updateable via software. This means new features and sounds can be added very easily over time and provides great longevity for the instrument.

With that in mind Yamaha have today announced the release of v1.3 OS and it includes some great updates.

Saul,

I had never done Yamaha's method of updating an OS before (only Nord's - in which you USB the synth directly to your PC). WIth Yamaha you have to copy the PGM file onto a USB stick and insert that into the back of the CP73/88.

Here is a link in case anyone is (as was) new to this procedure. This video explains it with no messin'.

Ta,

Paul

Excellent thanks. Would love some modern pop sounds. Retro synth sounds aren't that useful, so it would be great if you could look at the modern synth sounds used on modern tracks like Shape of You, Sorry Not Sorry, Bad Guy, 7 Rings, Thank U Next, and make sure these types of sounds can be replicated on the CP73.
