Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial samples
The Yamaha Clavinova CLP-745 features samples from the world-famous Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos. Bösendorfer is a famous Viennese piano manufacturer, founded in 1828, which has become owned by Yamaha. The Yamaha CFX is characterized by a clear and expressive sound, while the Bösendorfer Imperial has a more charming and warm timbre. All 88 keys have been very accurately sampled so that the harmonious nuances of the instruments are very much in evidence.
Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM)
Thanks to Yamaha's groundbreaking Virtual Resonance Modelling technology, the sound and resonance of a real grand piano is uniquely recreated. This takes into account all the interactions that take place within the instrument such as the vibration of the strings, the sound box the soundboard, sounds from dampers and pedals.
Grand Expression Modelling
Thanks to this new technology of the Clavinova CLP-700 series, the impact of the pianist's playing technique on the sound reproduction is mimicked. Just like an acoustic piano, the intensity and speed of the touch creates limitless sound variation, adding an extra dimension to the musical experience.
The GrandTouch-S keyboard with wooden keys
The new GrandTouch-S keyboard with wooden keys of the Yamaha Clavinova CLP-745, offers the pianist a very authentic and realistic playing feel. The white and black keys feature synthetic ivory and ebony and therefore have a strong absorbing effect, which will also lower the chance of playing mistakes. The keyboard features an escapement (let-off) mechanism, similar to a real acoustic piano.
Binaural sampling - Realistic sound experience through headphones
Via the Binaural Sampling technology from Yamaha samples the sound of the piano using specialized microphones attached to the pianist's ear. As a result, all the nuances discerned by the human ear are captured. Thanks to this technology, a three-dimensional sound is produced, and it seems as if the sound is actually coming from the piano cabinet, when you play with headphones. Binaural Sampling thus ensures an optimal musical experience when using headphones.
