The Yamaha CLP-625 Clavinova Digital Piano proves again what Yamaha are capable of, and delivers authentic sound and feel that will impress pianists of all levels.
The Yamaha CLP-685 Clavinova Digital Piano is the top-of-the-line in the CLP-600 range, offering the cream of the crop with regard to appointments and features. Whether you're a student or a seasoned pro, the CLP-685 captures the heart and soul of an acoustic grand in the form of a classroom-, home- or studio-friendly sized upright cabinet - now you can have the best of both worlds!
The newly introduced GrandTouch keys offer increased responsiveness, as well as a more generous dynamic range than on previous Clavinova models. The natural, balanced response of an acoustic is matched on the CLP with an accurate response captured from the tip to the back of each key. The inclusion of carefully adjusted counterweights on the CLP-685 means that when performing pieces of music that requires the utmost control, you can rest assured that the lightest of touches will be translated immaculately.
The black keys are finished in ebony, with synthetic ivory tops reproducing the tactile playing surface of authentic ivory keys that were a staple in older acoustic pianos. Whether you're performing for 5 minutes or 5 hours, the absorbent material retains a luxurious feel under your fingertips.
The easy to use LCD display allows you to keep on track of everything with regard to connected devices, track recording, voice selection, etc. At your disposal, there are 49 voice selections available on the panel with 480 XG voices for MIDI song playback, plus 14 drum voices for enhanced percussive control. Not only that, but the range of preset voice demos available on the CLP-685 is 21 voice demos, 50 classic tracks, and a whopping 303 lesson songs.
Thanks to the internal flash memory, 16-track recording in available, with USB Audio Recording of WAV files with 44.1kHz sample rate at 16-bit resolution in stereo, perfect for laying down your masterpieces, or simply keeping track of and identifying any areas for improvement with regard to your technique.
The CLP-585 is equipped with the powerful tone of flagship Yamaha concert grand, the CFX, and the wondrous beauty of the Bósendorfer Imperial to give your performances a majestic air. Thanks to their tireless efforts to reproduce the inner workings and subtle nuances than generate a grand piano's timbre, Yamaha have succeeded in capturing the resonant characteristics to perfection. Enhanced Virtual Resonance Modelling (VRM) ensures the piano body resonates in the same way as an acoustic piano, resulting in a rich reverberation that produces an enveloping sound.
However, the team at Yamaha appreciate that sometimes you may want to practise or perform without disturbing others. With regard to this, they have conducted advanced binaural sampling testing to match the realistic feeling of performing on a concert grand, even when you're using headphones. This is particularly useful for those who wish to hone and master their playing technique without having to worry about waking the neighbours.
In keeping with modern appointments, as well as USB to Host and USB to Device connectivity, the CLP-585 is also equipped with built-in Bluetooth for wireless connection to iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or Android devices. You can perform along to your favourite tracks and music apps via the Bluetooth interface.
The Yamaha CLP-585 Clavinova Digital Piano is perfect for those who are looking for a grand piano playing experience in the comfort of their own home, without the footprint of an acoustic grand piano. Whether you're a student honing their skills or a more experienced pianist who demands the best, you'll fall in love with the new CLP-585.
The Virtual Resonance Modelling technology optimises your piano’s resonance. In an acoustic piano each note blends with the next for natural swell and decay of sound. The VRM uses an advanced register to measure the strings’ distance and interaction with each other. It can also calculate the intensity of your performance and add an appropriate decay of each note. This gives the CLP685 a more acoustic feel with textured tones, removing any unnatural breaks in sound.
Yamaha’s advanced binaural sampling technology gives the player a fully immersive concert grand experience - even with headphones. The technology uses samples from the CFX, Yamaha’s acclaimed concert grand piano, recorded with specialised microphones that capture locational information and other nuances discerned by the human ear. The resulting sound is so natural that you’ll forget you’re even wearing headphones. Once you choose the Yamaha CFX Grand Voice and put headphones on, the binaural sampled sound is automatically ready and no additional settings are required. Now you can fully enjoy the concert grand experience at home, with or without headphones.
The 3 speaker design on this Yamaha Clavinova reproduces your notes with exceptional clarity and balance. The first speaker runs along the top bar of the piano, directing sound straight towards the performer for an immersive experience. The lower speaker pushes bass frequencies with a realistic resonance. The middle speaker adds warmth and mid frequency power to your mix. By having this speaker under the cabinet, the performer will notice a more accurate sound. The even tone and volume capabilities are ideal for musicians in a home, studio, or teaching environment.
