An excellent Clavinova model with scrupulous attention to piano fundamentals.
The CLP-320 combines the pleasant playability of the GH keyboard with the expressive power of Pure CF Sampling and 3-level Dynamic Stereo Sampling. With 128-note polyphony and three foot pedals that include the damper half pedal effect, the instrument delivers the full nuance of an acoustic instrument. The CLP-320 is an introductory model with meticulous attention to piano fundamentals.
NEW! Pure CF Sampling for superb tonality
Yamaha technicians selected a Yamaha CFIIIS full concert grand with the best sound quality and finely tuned it under the best conditions. Then, they used our unique Pure CF Sampling* technique to sample all of its sounds in order to create the new CLP300 Series piano sound. As a result, you enjoy the same natural tonal variety as a Yamaha acoustic concert grand piano.
* CLP380, CLP370, CLP340, CLP330, CLP320, CLPS308, CLPS306.
From pianissimo to fortissimo
The voice of an acoustic grand piano changes according to how it is played. Yamaha's sounds are sampled according to keystroke strength for each key at 10 levels or more. The Advanced Wave Memory(AWM)Dynamic Stereo Sampling technology analyses these samples. Then, it selects three to five levels* that best match your subtle touch on the keyboard. This enables you to directly transmit the delicate movements of your fingertips into expressive sound.
* CLP380 uses five levels.
All the subtle capabilities of a grand piano
Key-Off samples provide the delicate sound keys make when they are released. Stereo Sustain samples recreate the resonances of strings and soundboard when the damper pedal is pressed. String Resonance samples provided the rich tones produced when one hammered string causes related strings to ring out in harmony. Using these comprehensive gradations, CLP300 Series models can realistically reproduce the complex sounds of a grand piano.
* Key-Off and Stereo Sustain: CLP380, CLP370, CLP340. String Resonance: CLP380.
NEW! Yamaha's unique Tri-Amp System
This proprietaryTri-Amp System improves sound quality by using three separate amplifiers for the high, middle and low frequency ranges. Yamaha audio professionals, with their expertise of Yamaha acoustic equipment in studios and halls, extensively explored the optimal balance of the 3-system amplifier to reproduce the natural tones of the piano. The result is greater amp efficiency, lower distortion and better frequency response across the entire sound spectrum. It also maximizes the benefits of Pure CF Sampling.
* CLP380 only.
