The CVP-505 has a beautiful finish and makes an elegant addition to any home. The 88-key Graded Hammer keyboard with synthetic ivory keytops, provide a realistic feel when playing due to their semi-porus composition. The 5.7" full-colour LCD display shows you crystal clear scores, lyrics and settings, even under extreme lighting conditions.
Graded Hammer 3 (GH3) Keyboard with Synthetic Ivory Keytops
Just as on an actual grand piano, the lower keys are heavy in touch and the higher keys are light, with all the natural gradations in between. This technology also provides performance functions and expressive power found only on grand pianos, such as having repeated plays of the same note perfectly articulated, even when playing at high speed or with partial key release.
Advanced Wave Memory (AWM) and Pure CF Sampling
The AWM (Advanced Wave Memory) is a sampling system which creates sound close to that of an acoustic instrument by using digital technology to record the instrument sound and applying high-quality digital filter technology to the recorded audio samples. The waveform of the sound created by playing the key of an acoustic piano differs depending on the playing strength from pianissimo to fortissimo. The AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling can produce such dynamic nuances by recording samples of various playing strengths. The greater the number of samples used, the higher the expressive quality and potential becomes. Yamaha technicians selected a CFIIIS full concert grand with the highest sound quality, and tuned it to the finest possible condition. They then used Yamaha's unique Pure CF Sampling technique to sample all of its sounds, in order to create the CVP sound. As a result, you enjoy the same natural tonal response as a top-quality piano.
Super Articulation and MegaVoice Technology
The Yamaha CVP505 introduces a new level of sonic realism and musical expressiveness with its remarkably authentic Super Articulation voices. They feature the unique performance characteristics of each instrument, the expressive finger-slides on the guitar, or the breathy, legato phrasing of a saxophone. Combined with the MegaVoice Technology of the CVP505, ththey are made even more realistic. This technology contains not only the basic samples of the instrument but also the performance techniques used with it. On a guitar for instance, players will hear open and mute string sounds, dead notes, hammering effects, slide effects, harmonics and a wide range of strum and body noises. In technical terms, MegaVoice duplicates an instrument's behavior. Never before have such string, wind and brass instruments, played live with a keyboard, sounded so convincing or so real.
USB Audio Recorder and mp3 Playback
You can record your performance as audio data to a USB storage device. Connect a microphone or guitar to the instrument and enjoy recording a guitar and keyboard performance together, or record your singing along with song playback. Also it features playback of audio files in mp3 format.
Guide Lamps and Auto Accompaniment
The key guide lamps indicate the notes you should play, when you should play them, and how long you should hold them down. You can also practice at your own pace - since the accompaniment waits for you to play the notes correctly. Here, mute the right- or heft-hand part and try practicing the part using the guide lamps. The auto accompaniment features let you produce automatic accompaniment playback simply by playing "chords" with your left hand. This lets you automatically recreate the sound of a full band or orchestra - even if you're playing by yourself. The auto accompaniment sound is made up of rhythm patterns of varied styles including pop, jazz, and many others.
