Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial samples
The Yamaha Clavinova CVP-809 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.
Binaural sampling - Realistic sound experience through headphones
Through Yamaha's Binaural Sampling technology, the sound of the piano is sampled 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.
GrandTouch keyboard with linearly graduated weighted keys
Thanks to the Grand Touch keyboard with wooden keys, you can enjoy a very authentic and realistic playing feel. The white and black keys feature synthetic ivory and ebony and therefore have a strong absorbing effect, reducing the chance of playing mistakes. The keyboard is equipped with an escapement (let-off) mechanism, as in a real acoustic piano. The GrandTouch keyboard also has longer keys and gives the pianist more leverage, for better dynamic control. Each individual key of the CVP-809's keyboard is linearly graduated weighted, amazingly mimicking the playing feel of a real grand piano. The CVP-809 also features key counterweights (not available in the lower models), which allow the keys to return to their positions more quickly. This allows for better control and playability, including when playing pianissimo with a light touch.
Damper pedal with grand piano response
The CVP-809 features a damper pedal that continuously detects the depth of compression and allows for semi-pedal function. The damper pedal with wing response offers the resistance curve of a wing: light at the beginning and heavier as the pedal is pressed further. This allows you to put the same nuances into your piano playing as you would with a real grand piano.
The Yamaha Clavinova CVP-809 can be connected wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet via its Bluetooth Audio feature. This way you can play along with your favorite songs yourself, improve your piano skills through online tutorials and even use the piano as a home entertainment audio system.
