The P-105 features a USB port, which enables you to connect it to a computer or an Apple iPad. With the addition of a separately available Apple Camera Connection Kit, you can take advantage of Yamaha’s free iPad music apps, such as Piano Diary and NoteStar. Piano Diary enables you to record and share your performances and time the length of your practices. NoteStar is a digital sheet music application that features easy-to-read notation that automatically changes pages as you play. You can also purchase and download songs into NoteStar and play along with a full band (as well as isolate the keyboard track in the song).
Putting computers and technology aside for a moment, important to keep in mind that the P-105 is extremely easy to operate if you just want to sit down and play piano. Its 88-note Graded Hammer Standard (GHS) weighted action keyboard is designed to mimic the feel of an acoustic grand, with gradually heavier keys on the low notes and lighter keys going up. Even though it has weighted keys, the P-105 is still lightweight (under 27 pounds/12.25 kg) and compact enough to be portable (especially compared to the CFIIIS).
