Real Grand Expression: Sound, touch and pedals, all perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.
Real Grand Expression; a phrase that defines the expressive capability of Clavinova. It is the key components of the sound, the touch and the pedals, together with the application of technology developed through a history of acoustic piano manufacturing. With Real Grand Expression, these elements are combined perfectly into a single instrument, creating the exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. When you play a Clavinova, you can imagine that 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 color 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 transitions, perfectly matched to the player's touch
Variations of sound according to touch
A pianist changes the volume and dynamics of the sound by varying the pressure applied to the keys. A Clavinova responds perfectly to give the player an outstanding level of performance control. By using long, carefully-sampled recordings of notes on a piano and unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions, rich sonic detail is delivered in response to the touch of the player.
From staccato to legato, superbly expressive sound that responds to the player's touch
Featuring Yamaha's Smooth Release technology, Clavinova recreates the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys slowly.
Left: Rapidly lifting your fingers (staccato), Right: Slowly lifting your fingers (legato)
Powerful polyphony ensures that more complex passages of music can be played without notes cutting off.
Superb playability and feel
Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, the GH3X keyboard action accurately reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. They also feature the three-sensor configuration, which accurately sense and interpret the behavior of the keyboard for a response and feel very similar to that of a grand piano.
The newly developed GH3X keyboards also feature an escapement mechanism that reproduces a slight clicking sensation near the bottom of the key dip, and they have been designed in such a way that the click is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.
Synthetic ivory keytops - a pleasure to play even after hours of performance
Reproduces the gentle, tactile surface of the ivory keyboards once used in only the finest pianos. It features highly-absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of performing, while retaining the ideal texture and feel. The mechanics of superior sound
Full-bodied tone and resonance
The sound of a Clavinova is calibrated in fine detail, with speaker positioning and body materials checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. To create a sound field that is very close to that of a grand piano, the Clavinova features tone escapements in several locations throughout the body that allow the sound from the speakers to be projected to the listener without being trapped inside the instrument.
The body of the Clavinova contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone. A new technology developed from Yamaha's intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments, Acoustic Optimizers deliver a natural, smooth sound across the entire keyboard.
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 pianos, the Clavinova CLP Series boasts an impressive library of additional voices including electric pianos, strings and organs. Enjoy the freedom to choose the ideal voice for the genre of music you want to play.
IAC (Intelligent Acoustic Control)
The ability to adjust performance volume is extremely useful at home where players may not always be able to play at high volume levels. However, at low volumes, 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 balanced sound at any volume level.
