As a first comparison, we will have two digital pianos of the brand Dexibell Vivo, the Portable P-3 which as we have already mentioned has a price of approximately 1500 euros and the Vivo S-3 Pro which has a price of 1390 euros. We will analyze their differences and characteristics using the following table:

Dexibell Vivo Portable P-3

Dexibell Vivo Stage S-3 Pro

  • Digital piano with 73 weighted keys (weight on the keys) and sensitive keys (you can adjust the volume of the note depending on how you press it. And it is different from the counterbalance that is the weight of the keys on a piano) to the touch
  • 79 user-configurable sounds (Different piano sounds and other instruments) are configured from the more than 49 sound libraries (Different piano sounds and other instruments) that it comes with. A huge catalog.
  • 320 notes of polyphony (Number of notes that can sound at the same time. This includes accompaniments that also consume notes. So if you play on top of an accompaniment more notes will be accumulated) very powerful that is worth to play everything you want
  • Support for Sound Font
  • Typical effects of this type of pianos such as metronome and transposition.
  • The USB memory stick can be connected
  • 2 pedal inputs, the most important being the sustain input (the sustain pedal of a piano or keyboard is used to keep the note playing even if you stop pressing the key)
  • 2 configurable buttons to facilitate the exchange of functionalities
  • Layering function for combining sounds
  • Very interesting audio streaming function via Bluetooth
  • 2 very powerful 35W speakers (various piano sounds and other instruments), this is one of its strengths as you can play in many places without extra amplification
  • DBass Enhancer Functionality
  • Split functionality (dividing the keyboard into two different instruments) with 4 zones
  • Dual Functionality (Dual mode allows you to combine two sounds to create a more complete one. Typical is the combination of piano + stringed instrument sound)
  • Master EQ (refers to the master equalizer that allows you to adjust the parameters of the sound mix coming out of your speakers) Dynamic
  • 3-band compressor
  • Duo mode (Duo mode allows the keyboard to be divided into two pianos so that four hands can be played or the teacher and student can play on the same keyboard) and two headphone outputs
  • Stereo line output for live stages.
  • USB midi connection (MIDI allows you to do such wonderful things as connect your keyboard to your computer, record a soundtrack and with certain programs click through what you’ve played to musical notes on a score. MIDI tracks store the information of the musical notes)
  • Input for flash memory
  • 1 stereo audio input IN to connect other instruments or devices and mix the signal or play over
  • Weight 12.5kg and dimensions 1118 x 372 x 135mm (width x depth x height)
  • Too bad it doesn’t have a pedal
  • Keyboard with 73 weighted keys with a hammer mechanism
  • 3 sensors per key
  • 113 sounds
  • Compatible with Sound Font
  • More than 81 memory recordings
  • Unlimited user memories on USB media
  • 3 pedal inputs
  • 7 rotary encoders
  • 2 assignable buttons
  • Bluetooth audio streaming
  • Connections: Stereo Outputs, Stereo Audio In, USB to Host, USB to Device, 2 Headphone Jacks, MIDI in, out, thru
  • 4 MIDI zones
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 1077 x 370 x 136 mm
  • Weight: 11.8 kg

We found digital pianos of the same brand, similar price, as well as similar weight and dimensions. However, it is in their functions where their differences are appreciated. We find that both have 73 weighted keys, the P3 with 79 sounds, and a wide range in polyphony reaching a maximum of 320 notes. When the S3 Pro has 113 sounds and unlimited polyphony of notes. Having a clear advantage in the second one. The P3 has 2 pedal inputs, while the S3 has 3 inputs, and other selectors such as 7 rotary knobs and 2 assignable buttons. The advantage of the S3 is its powerful 35W speakers that would serve very well for a closed space when the P3 Pro doesn’t have integrated speakers, but line outputs. Depending on your needs, you’ll choose the best option, but both are good choices.

We find a somewhat unfair versus, we have previously analyzed the functions and characteristics of the Dexibell Vivo Portable P-3, which by its price, has good performance. Now if we double the price, we can reach a Clavia Nord, which without presenting itself, we can already say that it would be an excellent option. And indeed, along with all the functions and features the Clavia Nord Stage 3 HP76 (such as 2GB for storage, effects, triple pedal, and connections.) would be the best option to have an excellent stage piano with excellent portability.

  • Weight 12.5kg and dimensions 1118 x 372 x 135mm (width x depth x height)
  • Too bad it doesn’t have a pedal

 

  • Keyboard with 88 wooden (white keys) and plastic (black keys) keys with pressure sensitivity and counterweight.
  • 2-line monochrome LCD display with backlight
  • 433 Voices of which 45 voices dedicated to piano, 47 voices dedicated to electric pianos, and 341 voices for strings, organ, drums, etc.

  • Power supply form: AC
  • 18w power consumption
  • Dimensions 1.33 m x 16.1 cm x 35.2cm
  • Weight 17.5kg

Interesting comparison, due to its very similar price. On the one hand, the Dexibell offers us 73 weighted keys, 79 different sounds, and 320 notes of polyphony, on the other hand, the Yamaha has 88 keys, the white ones are made of wood, but the black ones of plastic, have 433 different voices, with a somewhat limited polyphony of 128 notes of polyphony. This is just a point where they differ a lot and depend on much of the use that will be given to the digital piano, certain compositions need a wide polyphony, however for most themes in general 128 is a very good number. So as we have also said before, depending on the needs you have, you will make the best decision.
