These new pianos are capable of playing PianoSoft™ PlusAudio discs. that combine live piano performances and vocalists. More than 20 titles are now available for purchase from top music artists such as Christopher Cross, Bob James, Frank Sinatra, and Dave Koz, as well as Christmas favorites, Broadway hits, Latin rhythms and classical standards. In addition, Yamaha has also added an Extra Memory Kit (EMK) that allows the user to store nine different libraries of prerecorded songs for quick and easy programmed playback. EMK lets you store songs and set them to play at any time of the day.

The PRO and GranTouch series retain the Disklavier's traditional ability to record each detail of the artist's fingering and pedaling with absolute precision and store it on a standard floppy disk for easy playback. More than standard MIDI data, the record feature on the Pro series will capture even the slightest upward and downward movement of the keys and pedals in a more dynamic way than is possible using conventional MIDI.
