Welcome to the digital part
When you bring a Clavinova into your home, you bring so much more than an acoustic piano has to offer. Of course, Yamahas Clavinovas offer all the touch response and beautifully rich, detailed piano sound you want. Plus a great deal more, including a full orchestra of superb quality digitally sampled instruments, and a whole host of advanced auto accompaniment features. What's more, you get all the convenience of a digital instrument: no need for costly tuning, greater portability, and you can use headphones, so you can play any time you like without disturbing the family or your neighbours.
If you're going to study there's no place like home
The Clavinova features a truly extensive learning support Mk system including guide lamps over the keyboard. Right from day one, the kids-or even grandad can learn by playing real music instead of practice pieces, making it fun and enjoyable to study. There's even a built-in recorder so you can record your performance an see how you're doing, and save it to floppy disk to build up a continuing progress report.
Build up your own library of music software
Yamaha offers an enormous library of music software for study, karaoke, playa long or just playback enjoyment. Pick up a song file data disk and enjoy minus-one playback that lets you step into the spotlight and solo in front of a full orchestra. Or load a style data disk, and add more auto accompaniment styles. No matter what kind of music you like, or at what level you play, there's sure to be just the title for you. From classical to rock, pop to ethnic, the list is almost endless.
Plug in to some singalong fun
Pop a karaoke floppy disk into the drive and you've got your own home karaoke centre. Song lyrics are displayed on-screen, so the entire family can get together for real singalong entertainment. What's more, you can even get some other instruments out (maybe dads old guitar!) and play along with the songs for a whole new style of karaoke experience.
XG opens up even more music
XG is Yamahas revolutionary extension of the General MIDI format. Naturally, it contains all of the GM standard, so you have complete compatibility with commercially available GM software. And it goes a lot further, to include a huge set of additional voices -a minimum of three effects processors with many effects types -MIDI control of analogue inputs allowing processing of, for example, microphone inputs to create vocal harmonies -extensive control of other parameters for real-time sound shaping What's more, there's also a vast selection of XG song software available. And if you're connected to the internet, you can tap into an incredible variety of XG resources. Why not visit some of these websites:
