Designed for gigging keyboardists, the Yamaha YC61 features newly designed Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) Organ engine with physical drawbars, extensive real time control and authentic Acoustic/Electric Piano and FM synth sound.

How do you reproduce the warm, authentic sound of an organ in a compact stage piano? You build an organ engine the Yamaha way, from the ground up. Our proprietary Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) recreates the circuits of vintage analog EQs, compressors and phasers right down to the transistors and resistors to capture the subtleties other digital simulations can’t. Whether you’re playing grand piano, upright piano, electric piano or more, Yamaha YC61 gives you authentic keyboard sounds for any genre of music.

VCM ORGAN

Yamaha puts the sound of your favorite tonewheel organ in one powerful, compact stage piano.the Yamaha YC61 models three flavors of tonewheel – just out of the box, well-traveled and character-rich vintage. Need more? Go under the hood to adjust key click, leakage, rotary speaker speed and more to get the one-of-a-kind organ tone you’ve been searching for.

VCM ROTARY SPEAKER

The Yamaha YC61 brings you the authentic sounds of classic rotary speakers with no maintenance required. Choose from two faithfully modeled rotary speaker profiles – clean and full or dirty and aggressive – and adjust top or bottom rotor speed for total control over all of it.

VCM EFFECTS

VCM re-creates the sound and behavior of vintage effects and high-end studio signal processors by modeling the circuits down to the original analog component level.

FM ORGAN

In 1983, Yamaha introduced the iconic sounds of FM (Frequency Modulation) synthesis to the world with the launch of the DX7. Now Yamaha YC61 brings FM synthesis to the organ for a new generation of players. Simply switch to FM Organ and your drawbars control 8 FM operators that send a pure sound with massive low end. Add rotary speaker or amp sim effects for character and vibe. Intuitive controls make it easy to discover new sounds. Or recreate classic transistor organ tones from warm to reedy to buzzy by choosing one of three popular FM Organ modes.

At Yamaha, they put everything we’ve learned over the last 100 years into everything you touch. With a totally redesigned waterfall keyboard and the perfect action, the Yamaha YC61 feels the way an authentic organ was meant to feel. It’s no wonder more players reach for Yamaha keyboards than any other.

The nine drawbars on the Yamaha YC61 have the footages and ratcheting you expect in an organ. But there’s more to our drawbars than meets the eye. See-through drawbar stops with customizable LED light color make it easy to see differences between simulated upper and lower configurations and play in split mode. It’s like having a virtual set of drawbars to give you more sounds, more flexibility and more choices than you ever thought possible in a compact stage keyboard.
