- Compared to the other synth stage piano like the CP series, what are the features in terms of technicality and aesthetically that stands out for the YC series?
I feel the CP is catered more for piano enthusiasts who just enjoys different shades, different layers of piano sounds. While YC on the other hand is more organ oriented, the drawbars gave it away. But with the YC88 you can venture more on different sounds while maintaining that piano touch. Also, the YC series has a 61-key version with the waterfall keyboard action which makes it feel like playing on an actual organ. Other than that, its tomato tomahto.
- In your opinion, what are some of the challenges in using the YC synth? How do you manage to overcome it?
Like I mentioned in the previous question, you just need to keep playing it and get use to the functions and what it is capable of. The possibilities are endless when you understand how it works. I feel like anyone will face a similar challenge for any synth brand. You just need to know where to find what you need and know when to apply, remove or mute it. Most important is to have fun with it.
