Incredible New Piano Voice
The Piano sampling has been redone since the last new range of Yamaha Clavinova pianos, the CLP300 series. Yamaha Full Concert Grand Piano CFIIIS an award winning piano used in many international competitions including the Frederic Chopin International Piano competition.
The concept is to be devoted to the original sound, to achieve a responsive and solid voice that gives the ultimate reward in piano playing. Yamaha produces many great concert grand pianos and the most suitable of these was used for the creation of the “Pure CF” sample. The acoustic piano used was then finished to the highest standard by the experienced and trusted Yamaha piano tuners who serve concert pianists and performers all over the world
Provide the best sound engineers with the best piano and they can deliver outstanding results. Microphones are set and moved millimetres at a time to record the most authentic sound possible. Using long samples rather than just looping shorter samples adds to accuracy and gives the true piano voice.
Further improvements are then made by testing and modifying on the instructions of great performers, pianists and instructors. All to create the Yamaha “Pure CF” piano sample.
The Yamaha CVP501 uses the new “Pure CF Sampling” and has 3 levels of sampling . The Yamaha CVP501 is the first new model to benefit from these incredibly rich piano tones .
