Piano samples from two of the world’s finest grand pianos: the Yamaha CFX & Bösendorfer Imperial.
Two of the world’s finest concert grand pianos are at your fingertips. The Yamaha CFX is the finest 9-foot concert grand piano, selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition. The Imperial from Bösendorfer has been held in high esteem by pianists throughout the brand’s long history. These renowned pianos are characterized by their distinctive power, versatility, and subtlety.
NWX (Natural Wood X) keyboard with Synthetic Ivory Keytops and escapement provides superb playability and feel.
Yamaha Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboards are created using our unrivaled woodworking 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, and chosen specifically for use in making musical instruments. Only the best wood from the finest part of the tree is selected, resulting in a keyboard that is more resistant to buckling and warping than common laminated wood keyboards.
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.
Touch Panel: 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 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.
Piano Room with Session Mode: The Clavinova is ready for your jam or recording session
The Piano Room has been expanded to include the world-class CFX and Bösendorfer Grand Pianos, as well as vintage Electric Pianos. In Session Mode, you can invite three additional session musicians into the room to accompany you as you practice and perform in 40 different musical styles. These session musicians will automatically follow your harmonies in either full-keyboard mode or split mode, and will also follow your volume expression. These session musicians can selectively be activated and deactivated depending upon your musical needs at the time. Within this special room, you can even record your sessions with the touch of a single button.
Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM): For a sound that truly resonates with the listener.
In a grand piano, strings and sounds resonate throughout the entire body of the instrument to produce a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. Not only are the strings vibrating as you play, but other strings ring as well, in reaction to ones you play. Some keys strike a different number of strings depending on their position on the keyboard; this explains why the sound of an acoustic piano is so complex and rich.
This experience is reproduced perfectly on select Clavinova models 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 sound features a seemingly limitless number of elements in common with an acoustic piano.

Super Articulation 2 (SA2) Voices: So realistic, you won’t believe the sound is coming from a keyboard.
Yamaha’s Super Articulation 2 Voices (SA2) 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. Examples include “fret noise” or “body knocks” from a guitar or the “inhales”, “exhales” and glissandos from wind instruments. By simply varying your touch and playing techniques or using the pedals, SA2 Voices will add significant authenticity to your sound.
Accompaniment Styles: When you want to play more than just piano.
One of the defining features of a Clavinova are the hundreds of different Styles that can be controlled in real-time 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 based on what YOU play. Plus, you control the dynamic of the ensemble. Developed by professional session musicians from around the world, Styles let you recreate sound ranging from a small band to a full orchestra – even if you’re playing by yourself. You can use Styles to add embellishing Intros, Endings & Fill-Ins, and even arrange songs in real-time.

Style Recommender: Can’t remember the name of a song? No problem. Just play!
The Style Recommender is an intelligent function that allows you to find a Style that suits the type of music you feel like playing. You don’t even need to know the name of the song; the rythmic feel alone will do. Just play a bar or two of a simple rhythm or piano tune and a list of Styles that match your playing will instantly be displayed.
Voice Guide: 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.
*The audible information of the functions/screen supported by the Voice Guide is limited.
Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.): Never hit a wrong note!
Performance Assistant Technology (P.A.T.) lets you focus on playing the rhythms while the instrument worries about playing the right notes of MIDI songs.

You can use this feature to practice rhythms without being distracted by bad sounding notes.
