Offering a huge range of tones thanks to Pure CF Sampling and AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling.*
Pure CF Sampling gives CVP models a piano sound with superb tonal response and faithfulness to the original sound. They also benefit from AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling, which samples sounds at up to four levels according to keystroke strength, allowing the expression of delicate sound nuances. In addition to piano sounds, as many as 1,169 other instrument sounds are available, so you can enjoy all types of instruments from strings to percussion while you’re playing the piano.
* AWM stands for Advanced Wave Memory.
Super Articulation Voices elevate your performance to new heights of realism.
This amazing technology intelligently recreates the authentic performance characteristics of acoustic instruments, such as guitar fret noises and slides or the breathing of a sax player. They are then blended perfectly into your performance. Select any of the many Voices and enjoy an enhanced feeling of realism, as if that instrument was actually being played. These automatically enhance your lead lines with the characteristic articulations of the original instruments, with no special playing techniques required.
A keyboard so well made, it feels like you’re playing a grand piano.
Yamaha’s innovative GH3 keyboard has three sensors: in addition to two sensors to detect keystroke strength, it includes Yamaha’s original Damper Sensor. This enables you to use advanced techniques such as playing the same note repeatedly with perfect articulation, previously only possible on a grand piano, which blends sounds without the use of the damper pedal. You also enjoy the keyboard touch of a grand piano, including keys with weight gradations – heavy in the lower end and lighter in the higher end. Synthetic ivory keytops also provide the feel of a grand piano, even the fingertip sensations.
Familiar pieces are even more fun to play, thanks to a wide range of selectable auto accompaniment Styles.
A special feature of the CVP model is a wide selection of Styles that you can use for automatic accompaniment. All you do is play chords with your left hand, and you have your own personal backing band! You can add an intro or ending, or insert a fill-in. A maximum of 362 Styles are offered, such as Ballad, Dance and Country. The Styles use Mega Voices to ensure authentic, dynamic accompaniments. In addition, the Style guitar parts have been improved to provide even more natural guitar phrasing.
