Your dream pianos await
The enhanced Piano Room includes the world-class Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial grand pianos, plus over 1000 studio quality sounds. In Session Mode, you can invite three virtual musicians into the room to "jam" with you as you practice and perform in one of 40 different musical styles. These session musicians will automatically follow your harmonies and your volume expression using the new Dynamics Control feature. You can selectively activate and deactivate each one depending on your musical needs at the time. Within this special room, you can even record your sessions with the touch of a single button.
Superb playability and feel
NWX (Natural Wood X) keyboards are created using Yamaha's unrivaled expertise acquired through more than a century of crafting fine acoustic pianos. The material used for NWX keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried specifically for use in making musical instruments. The NWX keyboard also features an escapement mechanism that reproduces the feel of an acoustic piano as it goes through the let-off and drop of the hammer when a key is played very softly. The action has been designed in such a way that the escapement is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.
Strike with the perfect balance
Counterweights are embedded in the keys to balance the weight of the hammers and offer more precise control when playing delicately at low volumes. The Clavinova features a carefully-adjusted set of these individual counterweights for improved playability when playing pianissimo and quicker key return in rapid passages.
No two keys are alike
On an acoustic grand piano, each and every key is weighted differently. This is because the strings for each note are slightly thinner and shorter in the treble register, becoming gradually thicker and longer towards the bass register. The Clavinova action faithfully reproduces the subtle differences that this graded touch offers with differing weights and key returns for each one of its 88 keys. When it comes time to take your playing to an acoustic grand piano, the transition will be seamless to the performer.
An unrivaled grand piano pedal feel
The CVP-709 features a damper pedal that continually detects depression depth and allows half-pedaling. The GP Response Damper Pedal offers variable resistance, starting out light to the touch and growing heavier as the pedal is depressed further. This allows players to become accustomed to the nuances of delicate pedaling on an acoustic grand piano.
Spruce Speaker Cones
Drawing from its experience in building both acoustic pianos and high-end speakers, Yamaha CVP-709 speaker cones use pulp from the same spruce wood used to make acoustic piano sound boards.The result is a more natural, piano-like attack to the sound that is more piano-like when you play the keys.
Twisted Flare Ports
The Twisted Flare Port, a new Yamaha technology, offers a clearer bass sound. The flared and gently twisted shape evenly diffuses the air flow through the port. Compared to a conventional port, the Twisted Flare Port reduces air turbulence noise, contributing to clear and accurate low frequency reproduction.
For a sound that truly resonates with the listener
In a grand piano, strings and sounds resonate throughout the entire body of the instrument producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. Not only are the strings you are playing vibrating, but other strings ring as a reaction to ones you play. This is one reason the piano's sound is so complex and rich. This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the Clavinova through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard from one instant to the next. As a result, the Clavinova reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in playing an acoustic piano such as which keys are pressed, the strength with which the keys are played and pedal timing.
Virtually every instrument Yamaha builds can be found inside
Yamaha is the World's largest manufacturer of musical instruments, and CVP Clavinovas contain high-resolution, high-definition recordings only possible from a company with this rich heritage. Super Articulation (SA) and Super Articulation 2 (SA2) Voices are both highly advanced and easy to use, making you sound like a pro. With them you'll hear the most realistic reproductions of legato and staccato performance techniques that are so essential to playing bowed and wind instruments. By simply varying your touch and playing techniques or using the pedals, SA and SA2 Voices will add significant authenticity to your sound.
Optimal tone at any volume level
When playing in a home environment, people often enjoy the Clavinova at much less than full volume. However, the physics of sound at low volumes results in a loss of treble and bass. On a Clavinova, however, the Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) automatically adjusts the sound so you enjoy proper excellent bass and treble sound balance even at low volumes. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) at low volume. This ability to adjust volume without losing the rich and balanced sound is an exclusive Yamaha benefit, ensuring you always play with the utmost sound quality.
A new kind of headphone experience
Unique to Yamaha, the Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the piano when listening via the headphones, resulting in a spacious sound image that will inspire you to play for hours at a time. Using this private listening environment, the sound of the Clavinova appears to come from the body of the instrument rather than from the headphones, providing a more realistic and naturally comfortable experience.
When you want to play more than just piano
One of the defining features of a CVP Clavinova is the multitude of different Styles that can be controlled in real-time by playing chords on the keyboard. Accompaniment Styles introduce ensembles of virtual musicians to your performances in a variety of musical genres. From small jazz ensembles to full orchestras, you control what chords or harmony they play by what YOU play, plus you control the dynamic of the ensemble. Developed by professional session musicians from around the world, Styles add authentic, studio-quality backing players to your performances - even when you play by yourself. You can use Styles to add embellishing Intros, Endings & Fill-Ins and even arrange songs in real-time.
Now anyone can play a hit song, one light at a time
CVP Clavinovas are very patient: if you don't play the right notes, they wait until you do! This is made possible with the CVP's unique Guide feature. As the easiest way to play a song, the Follow Lights library teaches you popular melodies in a way only possible on a CVP Clavinova. Just follow the lights one note at a time, and fully-arranged orchestrations and arpeggios embellish your playing. Here, you don't play along with a recording, the recording literally plays along with YOU. Visit www.yamahamusicsoft.com/followlights to browse the entire library today.
Get connected and start singing
You can connect a microphone to enjoy singing along with your keyboard performance or using Karaoke song files from YamahaMusicSoft.com. All input jacks are conveniently located at the front of the instrument, under the keybed for easy access. Only Yamaha could build an instrument with studio-quality effects like reverb, echo and even Vocal Harmony. Alternatively, you can connect a portable music device such as an MP3 player or smart phone to enjoy listening through the Clavinova's high-definition speaker system.
Get in touch with the features you use most
This easy-to-understand touch screen makes the CVP simple to operate: you can touch, slide, swipe or rotate contents in the screen to access different functions and make adjustments. Adjustable brightness ensures an easy-to-read screen in all situations. Other buttons on the panel are laid out in easy-to-see and reach locations.
If you want it to, the Clavinova will even talk to you
When Voice Guide is active, the Clavinova speaks information from the current display or operation being executed. This allows those who have visual impairments to enjoy playing and using the instrument. When using Voice Guide, make sure that the USB flash memory containing the Voice Guide files is connected to the instrument.
Customize the control panel as you like
You decide what functions appear on the touch screen and which are assigned to special panel buttons. This allows you to create bookmarks for your favorite Voices and Styles in one convenient button, create shortcuts on the Home display for your most used "apps" from the MENU display, and assign your most used functions to the ASSIGNABLE buttons on the panel.
