DIGITAL SAXOPHONE YDS-120

A MORE CONVENIENT AND LIBERATING WAY TO PLAY THE SAXOPHONE

Encounter more moments that make your heart flutter, as you bring forth melodies from your saxophone with your breath and fingers. This digital saxophone eliminates restrictions on where and when you can play, while offering the same tonal diversity, deep low notes, and delicate highs of an acoustic instrument. Step into a new world where you can play the saxophone in a way that’s all you.

A MORE CAREFREE PATH INTO THE WORLD OF SAXOPHONE PERFORMANCE

The YDS-120 combines acoustic and digital technologies into a new form, giving you the ability to control your volume at will, so that you can play anywhere you want.

FIFTY-SIX VOICES FROM A SINGLE INSTRUMENT

Just lift it to your lips and blow to unlock a total of 56 voices for the soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophone. Enjoy the variety of expression the saxophone can deliver from the very first note. You can also play with the voices of other instruments, giving you a total of 73 instruments to work with.

PLAY JUST THE WAY YOU WANT

With the same key configuration as its acoustic brethren, the YDS-120 combines a breath sensor for expression, an analog controller, and your own breath, offering you true freedom of expression.

VOLUME CONTROL

Tamp down your volume while retaining the tonal colours of a saxophone. Fifteen volume levels and a headphone jack allow you to enjoy playing, without worrying about being too loud.

ACOUSTIC SYSTEM

A breath sensor detects air blown into the mouthpiece, while a digital sound generator drives a speaker to produce sounds transmitted through a simple horn-type acoustic mechanism.

MOUTHPIECE

Simply blowing into the specially-designed mouthpiece allows you to produce sound without having to worry about your embouchure (the way you shape your mouth). The mouthpiece can also be removed for easy maintenance.

BREATH SENSOR

The breath sensor detects the strength (pressure) of your breath, allowing you to control not only the strength, but also the tone of your sound as you play.

SAXOPHONE TONE, 56 PRESETS

Includes 56 different voices for the soprano, alto, tenor, and baritone saxophones, to handle a variety of genres and styles. You can also play with the voices of other instruments, like the shakuhachi, flute, electronic instruments, and more, giving you a total of 73 voices to work with.

KEY LAYOUT

The key layout is based on Yamaha’s acoustic saxophones, providing seamless usability. You can also change fingering using a dedicated app.

FULL SCALE SAMPLING

We teamed up with professional performers to sample the sounds of Yamaha acoustic saxophones—soprano, alto, tenor and baritone—meticulously recorded in whole tones, so that you can enjoy a natural sound without any hint of incongruity.

EXTERNAL CONNECTION TERMINALS

The YDS-120 comes equipped with an auxiliary input terminal for connecting devices such as smartphones, allowing you to connect to an external audio source to feel like you’re playing in an ensemble. Sound must be output from the headphone jack.

DEDICATED YDS CONTROLLER APP

This dedicated app enhances the performance of the YDS-120 and further expands the range of sound creation and includes instrument settings and sound editing. You can make detailed settings intuitively and visually from the app, that cannot be done on the instrument itself. To use the app, you will need to connect your smart device to the YDS-120 using a USB cable and Lightning USB adapter for iPhone / iPad or OTG cable for Android
