Real Grand Expression
Real Grand Expression. This phrase defines the expressive capability of Clavinova. It is not only the full realization of the sound, the touch and the pedals, but the application of technologies nurtured by crafting acoustic pianos to perfectly integrate these three elements into a single piano. This piano produces that exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. As you play, you will truly feel as though you are playing a grand piano.
The tone of the finest concert grand pianos in the world
The CFX – Yamaha’s finest concert grand selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition – and the Imperial from Bösendorfer – a brand held in high esteem by pianists throughout its long history – are renowned pianos characterized by distinctive traits such as power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness.
Both of these superb pianos’ Voices are featured in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by a highly experienced piano technician with the sound from each key sampled individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of these outstanding instruments.
With your Clavinova, you can enjoy the exquisite beauty of the sought-after tone that the CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial deliver.
Reproducing the Damper Resonance and deep reverberation of an acoustic piano
The Clavinova faithfully reproduces the sound of an acoustic piano utilizing features like String Resonance to emulate the mellow tonal colour that occurs when strings react to one another. The result is a beautiful tone with rich, deep reverberation.
In addition to the reverberation of the strings themselves, Damper Resonance reproduces the broad, deep sound field of an acoustic piano. It also mirrors the tonal changes that result when a damper pedal on a grand piano is depressed. It includes sounds such as those emitted from the key bed and emulates the cumulative resonance that occurs when all of these sounds blend together.
Smooth tonal transformations perfectly matched to key pressure
Pianists can change the volume of the sound as well as its dynamics to achieve both mellow and bright tones by simply changing the pressure they apply to the keys.
The Clavinova features long, carefully-sampled recordings of notes on a piano, reproduces them in rich detail and utilizes unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions in response to the touch of the player.
From staccato to legato – superbly expressive sound that responds to the player’s touch
Featuring Yamaha Smooth Release technology, Clavinova offers the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys more. This provides finely-nuanced response to the pianist’s playing.
The moment a pianist’s fingers are lifted from the keys of a grand piano, subtle changes occur in the instrument’s tone as the damper is lowered onto the strings to mute its sound. Key-Off samples features actual recordings of these changes, offering a faithful reproduction of the most subtle changes in the piano’s sound, allowing for a more realistic performance.
An abundance of piano lesson pieces
Features exercises for building piano technique from Hanon, Bayer, Czerny and Burgmüller.
Multi-track Song Recorder
The recording function featured in Clavinova digital pianos allows you to record your performances* with a single touch, which is useful when you want to review your playing objectively. Additionally, you can record up to 16 tracks for simultaneous playback, so different hands can be recorded separately or overdub parts with different Voices. (* Recordings are made in MIDI format, and can also be recorded to USB flash memory. Compatible software is required for playback of recorded data on a computer)
USB Audio Recorder
Record performances to USB flash memory and create audio files (WAV format) you can save and play back on a computer, share with friends or create a CD.
A comprehensive range of keyboard Voices
In addition to its world-class grand pianos, the Clavinova CLP Series boast a library of impressive Voices including, electric pianos and a variety of organs. Enjoy the freedom to choose the ideal Voice for the genre of music you want to play.
New reverbs that offer ambiance and spatiality
The new reverbs allow to you enjoy the sensation of playing a piano recital in a large concert hall, or experience the ethereal, moving sound of a pipe organ played in a cathedral. The Clavinova Series allow you to incorporate these exquisite reverbs to add depth and atmosphere to your sound and enjoy concert hall ambience and spaciousness in the privacy of your own home.
IAC (Intelligent Acoustic Control), perfect for playing at home
The ability to adjust performance volume is extremely useful at home where players may not always be able to play at high volume levels. Often at low volumes, both bass and treble may become difficult to hear. To counter this, Clavinova is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy
