Description

From professional piano performance to simply discovering the joy of music for the first time, the CVP-709 is truly a family musical entertainment center. It’s the first CVP Clavinova featuring not one, but TWO world-class grand pianos (Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial) inside one digital piano. The Piano Room feature has been expanded to include more pianos and a new Session Mode with a built-in recording studio for capturing and sharing your music. In addition to the NWX (Natural Wood X) keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops, the 88-key Linear Graded Hammer action dedicates a unique weight for each key over the entire keyboard. Each key also features carefully-adjusted counterweights for improved playability when playing pianissimo and better key return in rapid passages. 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. Beyond the CVP-709’s piano performance is a wealth of interactive musical features capable of making music fun for anyone regardless of skill level or experience.

Features

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.

 

Key Counterweights: Help you to strike with the perfect balance.

Counterweights are embedded in the keys of a grand piano to balance the weight of the hammers and offer more precise control when playing delicately at low volumes. The Clavinova features carefully-adjusted counterweights for improved playability when playing pianissimo with a light touch, and better key return in rapid passages. The keyboard of the Clavinova has been fine-tuned to offer optimal balance, emphasizing its superb playability and grand piano response.

 

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.

 

Audio Styles: The groove and sound of live drummers!

Audio Styles add natural feel, ambience, and warmth to drum and percussion parts, offering greater expressive potential. Audio Styles also benefit from Yamaha’s Time Stretch Technology, which allows the audio to follow your tempo changes without changing pitch, so everything stays in perfect sync.

 

 

Follow Lights with Guide Mode: Now anyone can play a hit song, one light at a time.

The CVP is very patient: if you don’t play the right notes, it waits 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.

 

You Are the Artist series (CVP): Let your CVP Clavinova help you learn to play hit songs.

Yamaha has partnered with music publishing giant Hal Leonard to prepare professionally arranged backing tracks to best-selling songbooks. Learn to play songs made popular by artists like Elton John, Taylor Swift, Adele and more. Simply purchase “You Are the Artist” series books wherever quality print music is sold, then download the song files at www.yamahamusicsoft.com/xg. Play with the pros – play Yamaha!

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.
Note:
*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.

 

Vocal Harmony 2: Sing in perfect Harmony… with yourself!

You can enjoy karaoke backing with songs stored in your Clavinova or downloaded from YamahaMusicsoft.com. The lyrics are shown on the display* and the words change color as the song advances, so you know exactly when to come in. You can even display the lyrics on a big TV screen so everyone can join in!

*Only if the song data includes lyrics.

Plug in a microphone, and you can sing along with your playing.
The Vocal Harmony 2 (VH2) engine creates advanced sounding harmonies, enriching your voice and is even capable of correcting your pitch!

 

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. Simply enable P.A.T., press play, and play along with the MIDI song and any note you hit will fit right in. Even a first time player will sound great. You can use this feature to practice rhythms without being distracted by bad sounding notes.
