What We Think
This piano is unlike anything I have seen, its design is much like the CLP series and but doesn’t have any of the buttons, it has a function button but do not be fooled by its simplistic interface. If you attach an iphone or ipad to it then it turns it into a CVP, with hundreds of voices, styles and songs. The voices sound amazing and the styles work in a slightly different way as it follows your playing instead of following the chords you play at the bottom of the piano. It also has many songs to learn with a fantastic ‘follow the light’ guide feature which works very well. You can also edit all your settings on this piano in the utilty menu on your ipad which is brilliant! Overall this piano is something of dreams and is a prime example of why digital piano’s are becoming vastly popular and getting closer and closer to the feel and sound of a real acoustic piano.
The Smart Pianist app provides access to new advancements in music development. By connecting your smartphone or tablet via the dedicated USB cable slot, you can instantly access new features to assist personalising the CSP’s features. The ‘Audio to Score’ function works out your songs’ chord progressions, and provides the sheet music instantly to play along with. The backing band feature allows you to scroll through a vast variety of instruments to add a full band sound to your pieces. The CSP’s Master Tune accessibility is a seamless way to edit and enhance the piano to your specific preference.
This digital piano uses sampling from two bespoke acoustic pianos for the most successfully crafted tone possible. The CFX is one of Yamaha’s most popular concert grand piano, whilst the Bosendorfer Imperial is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest acoustic instruments. By combining the characteristics of these instruments, Yamaha’s samples have the detail and authenticity of a true acoustic piano. The keys are sampled individually, before being tuned with each other so that your performances sound as natural as possible. Yamaha brings acoustic expression to digital convenience with the Clavinova’s samples.
Yamaha understand that students are most inspired by learning their favourite songs, so have incorporated a song recognition function. By loading the song, the piano will distinguish the chord and melody patterns before displaying them on a score sheet for you. The on board stream lights guide your hands to the timing and positions for each note, for a flawless performance.
Both traditional and modern musicians will find the GH3X keyboard instantly familiar. The keys have a springless design for the most consistent feel possible. The lower register keys have more resistance that gradually becomes lighter for a similar feel to acoustic pianos. The triple sensor sound receptors register the subtle nuances in your playing and relay them accurately to show your individual style. The GH3X keyboard also uses an escapement mechanism that copies a grand piano’s ‘click’ at the lower third of each key. This allows you to become familiar with the exact response of each key, for a comfortable performance.
