“Real Grand Expression” Sound, touch, pedals–perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.

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 – combined with technologies nurtured by crafting acoustic pianos to perfectly integrate these three elements into a single piano. This piano produces the 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.

Exquisite sound

The sound is heard just as it was played.

The grand piano Voices were obtained by recording the sounds of a Yamaha CFIIIS concert grand piano. A single piano best suited for recording was selected and then tuned to the finest possible condition by a veteran piano tuner. All the sounds were recorded with meticulous detail, resulting in a beautiful, harmonious piano Voice.

Smooth tonal transformations perfectly matched to key pressure

Variations of sound according to touch

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 CLP-525 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 touch

Featuring Yamaha Smooth Release technology, CLP-525 offers the crisp tone heard when playing staccato, as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys slowly. This provides a finely-nuanced response to the pianist’s playing.

Left: Rapidly lifting your fingers (staccato). Right: Slowly lifting your fingers (legato)

256-Note Polyphony

Play many notes simultaneously without any unwanted dropped notes.

Superb playability and feel

Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard

Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard

Utilizing the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano, GH3 keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic piano from the heavy feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features the three-sensor configuration, which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard for a response and feel very similar to that 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.

Keyboard Stabilizers—Yamaha-exclusive technology for improved keyboard stability and durability

Keyboards fulfill the vital role of transforming emotion from your fingertips into sound and therefore, must be smooth to play in order to maintain superb touch for prolonged performances. That is why Yamaha has fitted Keyboard Stabilizers to all 88 keys, offering players a natural touch and improving the stability and durability of the keyboard.

Natural feel, even on the back-end of the keys

The keys on the CLP-525 are constructed so that the support point hidden inside the instrument body is as far from the key tip as possible, improving playability and comfort, even deep on the back of the key.

This construction provides good key travel, even when performing pieces played mainly on the black keys and the backs of the white keys, allowing nuanced variations in touch and broadening your expressive range.

Clavinova key tips are far from the fulcrum, so the keys sink smoothly when played near the base

THE MECHANICS OF SUPERIOR SOUND

Full-body Resonance, just like an Acoustic Piano

Similar to an acoustic piano, the Clavinova is calibrated carefully, with speaker positioning and body materials checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. For a sound image that is very close to the grand piano, these instruments feature Tone Escapement in several locations throughout the body that allow the sound from the speakers to be projected to the listener’s ears without being trapped inside the instrument.

Acoustic Optimizer—regulation to ensure a balanced tone

The body of the CLP-525 contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone.

A new technology springing from Yamaha’s intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of the interiors of musical instruments, and helps deliver natural, smooth tonal richness across the entire keyboard.

OTHER FEATURES

Built-in Song Recorder

The recording function featured in the CLP-525 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 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, so different hands can be recorded separately or overdub parts with different Voices.

* Recordings are made in Standard MIDI file (SMF) format. Compatible software is required for playback of recorded data on a computer

Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), perfect for playing at home

Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), 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, the CLP-525 is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume setting.

UNPARALLELED GRAND PIANO SOUND

Two of the world’s finest grands….

Left: Yamaha CFX, Right: Bösendorfer Imperial

The CFX, Yamaha’s finest 9-foot 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. These renowned pianos are 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 Clavinova, you can enjoy the exquisite beauty of the sought-after tone that the CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial deliver.

Real Grand Expression: sound, touch and pedals, all perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.

Real Grand Expression

Real Grand Expression; is a phrase that defines the expressive capability of Clavinova. It is the key components of the sound – the touch and the pedals – combined with technology developed through our 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 feel like you are playing a grand piano.

Reproducing the resonance and reverberation of an acoustic piano

The Clavinova faithfully recreates the sound of an acoustic piano by utilizing features such as String Resonance to emulate the mellow tonal colors that occur 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, unique Yamaha technologies can achieve smooth tonal transitions.

From Staccato to Legato: Superbly expressive sound that responds to the 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)

Key-off Samples

The moment your 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 the sound. Key-off samples feature actual recordings of these changes, offering a faithful reproduction of the most subtle nuances in the piano’s tone, creating a more realistic overall sound

256-Note Polyphony

Powerful polyphony ensures that more complex passages of music can be played without notes cutting off.

It also features a three-sensor configuration which accurately senses and interprets the behavior of the keyboard to create a response and feel very much like that of a grand piano.

The newly developed GH3X keyboard features an escapement mechanism that reproduces the feel of an acoustic piano as it goes through the let-off of the jack and the fall of the hammer when a key is played very softly.

The body of the Clavinova contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone. This technology was developed from Yamaha’s intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments, and helps deliver a natural, smooth sound across the entire keyboard.

Custom-designed sound system

2-way speakers

Deep and expansive grand piano sound reflects powerfully off the piano lid.

A variety of piano lesson pieces

Features 303 exercises for building piano technique from popular methods like Hanon, Bayer, Czerny and Burgmüller. Connect an iPad using the NoteStar app to view the printed score and even turn pages using the pedals.

Multi-track Song Recording

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 or archive your playing. You can record up to 16 tracks for simultaneous playback, allowing you to create your own songs using different sounds, or record each hand separately.

* 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 as audio files (WAV format), which you can save and play back on a computer or portable audio device. Share your performance with friends or online!

A comprehensive range of keyboard Voices

In addition to pianos, the Clavinova CLP Series boasts an impressive library of instrument Voices including electric pianos, strings and organs. Enjoy the freedom to choose the ideal Voice for the genre of music you want to play or record.

New reverb that offers dynamic ambience and spatial effects

A new reverb system allows you to experience the sensation of playing in a large concert hall, cathedral or other venue, adding depth and atmosphere to the sound. Now you can experience concert hall ambience and spaciousness in the privacy of your own home.

Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC)

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. At low volumes, bass and treble used to be difficult to hear. Now, Clavinova is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level.

Conserve energy with convenient auto power off feature

Auto power off shuts down the instrument after a period of inactivity. You can customize how long it will wait before shutting down, or disable it if you prefer. To learn more about other ways that Yamaha conserves energy, visit our Corporate Social Responsibility page at https://www.yamaha.com/en/csr/environment/energy_conserving_products/.

A range of Apps to expand your musical horizons

If you use an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, Yamaha Apps can make playing more creative, enjoyable and fun.

Realistic touch and response, paired with the unmistakeable tone of the finest concert grand pianos ever made, the Clavinova delivers expressive capabilities and a dynamic range that redefines the standard for digital pianos today.

Your dream piano studio awaits.

The enhanced Piano Room now includes the world-class Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial grand pianos, plus vintage electric pianos. 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.

Variety is the spice of life.

The CVP-701 features hundreds of high-quality instrument Voices including “Natural!”, “Sweet!” and “Cool!” Voices sampled specially to compliment the instrument types. Yamaha’s Super Articulation Voices (SA) add genuine performance attributes of the real musical instruments as though they were being naturally performed by a virtuoso of that instrument instead of from the keys of a piano keyboard.

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.

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.
