What makes the CLP240 special ?
Compare the CLP240 to the CLP230 and youll find a big differance in sound quality, the amplication is twice the power, giving a richer deeper sound . The piano sample is dynamically sampled. On a real piano when you play a note soft it is soft and quiet, when you hit it hard it is loud and bright. This is what makes an acoustic instrument special. A Clavinova is a copy of an acoustic instrument, the closer we can get to the character of the real instrument, the better the Clavinova will sound. Bear in mind that the dynamic stereo samples are taken from a top of the range Yamaha concert grand.

It features Yamaha’s famed GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) technology to effectively recreate the feel of an actual grand piano.

True piano feel
More than any other keyboard, the Clavinova reproduces the experience of playing an actual grand piano. Thanks to the GH3 (Graded Hammer Effect 3) technology, the new keyboard provides the characteristic weight balance between key and hammer, and features weight gradations of the keys – heavy in the lower end, light in the upper keys. With two velocity sensors, it even lets you use techniques previously possible only on a real grand piano, such as playing the same note repeatedly with perfect articulation.
AWM Tone Generation and New Piano Samples
Like previous models, these new Yamaha Clavinovas boast AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation for the ultimate in instrument realism. And to assure a warmer, more natural, even more captivating sound, the CLP-240 also feature new DSS (Dynamic Stereo Sampling) piano samples. Taken at different levels from loud to soft, these new samples provide subtle differences in volume and timbre depending on how you play the keys … resulting in the ultimate in responsiveness. In addition, the CLP-240 offer Stereo Sustain and Key-Off samples. Stereo Sustain samples recreate the resonances of the strings and soundboard when the damper pedal is pressed that contribute to the unique sound of a grand piano. Key-Off samples provide the delicate sound keys make when they are released for another touch of realism.
Selection of Voices, Choice of Finishes
Besides new piano samples, you get a choice of other stereo-sampled musical instrument sounds to perform with. And thanks to enlarged memory, these sounds are better than ever, providing added realism for more music playing enjoyment. But Yamaha Clavinovas aren’t designed just for sound – they also feature an attractive, elegant finish to complement the room you place it in.
The CLP-240 offers a choice of three finishes, to more closely match your decor.
