The Allure of the CLP-700 Series
The CLP Series of digital pianos utilizes cutting-edge technology to recreate the experience of performing on a grand piano, allowing the pianist to play the keys with many variations of speed and depth to achieve an unlimited variation in tone and create uniquely personal performances. With expressive capabilities approaching those of a grand piano, the CLP-700 Series is sure to make playing the piano so much more enjoyable than ever before.
The sound of some of the finest concert grand pianos in the world - Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial
Clavinova grand piano sounds are recorded from several world-renowned concert grand pianos. One of them is the CFX, Yamaha’s top-flight concert grand piano, which has been newly sampled for the CLP Series. Pianists around the world are enamored with the impressive, dazzling, richly expressive sound of the CFX in concert halls. Another sampled concert grand is the Imperial, the flagship model of Bösendorfer, a time-honored Viennese piano brand with an ardent following. The Imperial is known for its abundance of color and natural, warm feeling. Yamaha faithfully reproduces the idiosyncrasies of these concert grand pianos by carefully recording the entire tonal range of each of the 88 keys, making minute adjustments to capture the most harmonious tones each piano has to offer.
Virtual Resonance Modeling
Een van de allures van de vleugel is de sympathische resonantie die wordt gecreëerd door de vibratie van het hele instrument. Clavinova-piano's reproduceren deze rijke sympathische resonantie uitvoerig door middel van een baanbrekende technologie genaamd Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM). VRM creëert een rijk gevarieerd geluid door de complexe sympathische tonen te simuleren die worden gecreëerd wanneer de trillingen van de snaren worden doorgegeven aan de zangbodem en andere snaren, overeenkomend met de timing en intensiteit van het bespelen van de toetsen en het gebruik van de pedalen. Piano's van de CLP-700-serie repliceren zelfs de geluiden die de dempers maken wanneer ze van de snaren worden getild, naast de resonantie van de duplex scale, snaren, zangbodem en kast. Met Clavinova-piano's kunt u genieten van dezelfde momentele dynamiek en diepe, sympathische geluiden die door de hele kast van een vleugel worden geproduceerd.
A fully immersive concert grand experience—even with headphones
The CLP-725 features binaural samples of the Yamaha CFX. Binaural sampling is a method of sampling in which special microphones are placed on a mannequin’s head in the same positions as the pianist’s ears to capture piano sounds the way that they sound in reality.
We chose this method to create the ambience and full, natural resonance of acoustic pianos in Clavinova pianos. This makes pianists feel as though they are sitting at a grand piano even when they play with headphones on. The experience is so pleasant that they forget they are wearing headphones, no matter how long they continue to play.
We also developed the Stereophonic Optimizer function to achieve the same effect for the piano effects. Stereophonic Optimizer technology replicates the natural diffusion of sound in headphones nearly as closely as binaural sampling for the piano voices other than the CFX.
Yamaha's newest keyboard mechanism features a wide dynamic range and faithful response to every nuance of touch that puts a wide range of timbres - from delicate to bold - at the pianist's fingertips. The highly consistent grand pianos replicate the pleasing response felt when the hammers strike the strings, allowing for precise control of tone.
Highly absorbent white keys of synthetic ivory and black keys of synthetic ebony prevent slipping, even during prolonged playing, and feel like those of a grand piano.
The repetition mechanism of Clavinova keyboards
The repetition mechanism in a grand piano moves the hammers away from the strings soon after the keystroke to avoid interference with string vibrations. This mechanism produces a slight clicking sensation when the keys are played softly.
The Clavinova keyboards have a repetition mechanism that produces this sensation at the last part of the keystroke. They are designed in such a way that the click is perceptible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano. These keyboards have been modified to provide additional friction that balances key repetition and responsiveness without sacrificing the playing experience.
Clavinova pianos offer excellent playability and versatile features, along with a refined, authentic design that combines a compact form with modern aesthetics in a manner befitting the instrument that sets today's piano standard. At the heart of the Clavinova design concept is how the pianist feels when taking a seat behind a Clavinova piano. Unnecessary elements are removed from the pianist's field of vision to create a compelling natural space that feels like sitting behind an acoustic piano. This represents Yamaha's focus on pianists who practice on the Clavinova and play on grand pianos - they can enter the stage free of tension or worry because everything feels normal, as it should. A Clavinova piano is part of the pianist's daily life: contemporary accents and color variations are available to match any interior design and lifestyle.
Grand Expression Modeling
The interaction and interplay of the hammers, dampers and strings in a grand piano respond to the subtlest nuances of touch by the pianist, creating a limitless tonal range. The touch refers to the control by the pianist, not only of intensity (softness/loudness) when playing and releasing the keys, but also of the speed and depth with which the keys are pressed. The Grand Expression Modeling (expression modeling of a grand piano) introduced with the CLP-700 series translates the highly varied input from the pianist's fingers into the same limitless tonal variation of a grand piano.
This makes it possible to vary the output by playing the keys to different depths and at different speeds, even when techniques such as trills or legato are used or the melody is emphasized over the accompaniment. Grand Expression Modeling excels at faithfully reproducing the output expected from these techniques in many well-known songs. In Debussy's 'Clair de Lune', a loose touch creates the faint tone, making the melody stand out more sharply. In 'Un Sospiro' by Liszt, accompanying arpeggios accentuate the melody without overwhelming it, and the varied expression of the melody gives it the same quality as singing. In the last of the Chopin nocturnes, trills, legato and other delicate techniques where fingers seem to float over the keys provide the airy, smooth tonal expression that is needed. Playing such pieces on a highly expressive piano helps the pianist learn different techniques and experience the same expressive experience as a painter, but through sound.
