Hear the ultimate
How do you improve the finest? This is always the challenge facing the engineers at Yamaha. So for these new Clavinovas, they set out to create the ultimate in instrument realism, far surpassing CD-quality sound. Of course, they started from an industry-leading position, with AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) tone generation, the system that actually varies the volume and timbre of sound according to your touch on the keyboard. Then they employed new technology to take entirely new stereo samples of a specially selected Yamaha full concert grand piano to deliver even more of the life and realism musicians demand.
Touch the ultimate
The sound is unmatched, and so is the touch, thanks to the GH (Graded Hammer Effect) keyboard. Offering the ultimate in grand piano realism, the GH keyboard is the fruit of Yamaha's century-plus of crafting the finest acoustic pianos. Unlike conventional digital piano keyboards that use springs or oil dampers to simulate a piano feel, the GH keyboard uses weights and mechanical linkages to achieve an entirely new level of realism. And to go even further, the key weight is graded from heavier in the lower registers to lighter in the higher, exactly the same as a grand piano's. It is as close as you can get to the real thing.
Broad selection of voices
The Clavinova is, first and foremost, a piano, definitely the most versatile of instruments, but it's nice to have more. So the new CLP930 is equipped with a wide range of new and dramatically improved instrument voices, including, Grand Piano, E.Piano 1, E.Piano 2, Harpsichord, Vibraphone, Church Organ, Choir and Strings.
A single cable is all it takes to connect the CLP Clavinova to your Windows or Macintosh personal computer via the built-in TO HOST PC interface: there's no need for costly additional hardware or software. Then you are ready to enter a new and limitless world of music. You can use PC-based sequencing software to record and play back your performances. The wide range of playback software now available offers you a new style of background music. And if you wish, you can use an instructional software package to learn music theory or improve your playing.
When you play music that calls for a lot of sustained notes, a conventional digital piano quickly runs out of polyphony. You can actually hear existing notes being cut off as the instrument has to "steal" them to play the new notes you finger. But thanks to the CLP930's astonishing maximum 64-note polyphony, in combination with Yamaha's new "intelligent" key assigner software, note cutoffs are greatly reduced and virtually unnoticeable.
Digital reverb and digital effects
The built-in digital reverb allows you to add room ambience and bring more life and depth to your music. A selection of room sizes, including stage ambience, lets you get exactly the effect you want. Yet another way to bring the CLP's stunningly lifelike voices even closer to your creative vision is the use of digital effects.
Think of the built-in 2-track recorder as your personal digital recording studio. With 2 tracks, you can first record the backing parts, and then solo to your heart's content. When you are finished you can save your performance on your PC via the PC interface or on an external MIDI recorder via MIDI. It's a great way to build up a collection of your favorite performances or keep a log of your progress as your skill improves.
