SpecificationsFeatures Real Grand Expression - sound, touch and pedalsperfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.
By harmonizing the three key elements of sound, touch and pedals in a single piano, the CVP-600 Series gives you the feeling that you are playing a grand piano.Achieves grand piano performanceand more. The RGE Sound Engine delivers the ultimate expressive digital piano.
The Clavinova uses the Real Grand Expression (RGE) Sound Engine,Yamaha's next-generation digital piano sound source. This lets you enjoy the playing response and expressive capability of a concert grand piano. It features a new Smooth Release function which uses a key-off velocity sensor to express note decay with great clarity, and clearly enunciates staccato notes with the resonance heard when lifting your fingers from the keys. RGE succeeds in capturing the essence of a piano performance to create grand piano-like, richly expressive experiences.Subtly reproduces resonance with the depth you hear from an acoustic grand piano.
The Clavinova subtly reproduces even the unique elements of an acoustic piano. The String Resonance feature expresses the overtone series of strings above and beyond the actual notes you're playing. Key-Off samples actually deliver the delicate change in sound acoustic pianos make the instant the damper falls back to the string. The addition of these sounds results in a tonal experience that is not only beautiful, but also natural and rich.The Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) keyboard action takes piano performance to the next level.
The touch of the Clavinova keyboard has been praised by pianists for a performance feel that makes you forget its a digital piano. The secret behind this superior touch is the same hammer scale and spring-less mechanism as a grand piano. Depending on the weight of the hammer, the force of your touch and the natural key return when you release, the Clavinova faithfully reproduces the keyboard touch of an acoustic piano on every key, from top to bottom.
Also important is Yamahas unique three-sensor system, which monitors each key strike at a higher resolution. When playing continuously or with a light trill, like the techniques used in pieces like Fr Elise, you can feel and hear a bright, vivid performance.
The CVP-600 Series offers a great new feature called Piano Room that you can use when you really want to concentrate on piano performance and savor your piano sound. You can select from four styles of acoustic pianos - Grand, Pop-Grand, Upright and Honky-Tonk - then you can select a performance location, such as concert hall, cathedral or stage. Instantly, the tone quality and acoustics change to match that piano and venue, giving your performance a totally different experience. When youre playing the Grand or Pop-Grand pianos, the tone changes even as you adjust the height of the virtual piano lid between fully opened or closed.The color touch panel: getting to the features you want is easier than ever.
