Concert grand experience
Get the feeling of the most iconic instruments. When you go digital, you get the luxury of creating the sounds of the most prestigious pianos in your own home. The B?sendorfer Imperial and Yamaha CFX concert grand have played in the most classic venues in the world and both have been sampled to perfection in your Clavinova CSP 150 digital piano. Advanced binaural sampling technology creates an authentic, immersive sound whilst practising with headphones or performing for all to enjoy. These pianos have been recorded with specialized microphones, capturing locational information that your ears would naturally pick up from a piano of such quality.
Surround your audience in sound. One of the things people love most about the finest grand pianos is their impressive string resonance. The nearby strings reverberating when you play a note adds to the complexity and richness of the sound. You get this same effect thanks to the Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) used in the Clavinova CSP 150. This technology calculates the effects of all 88 notes from moment to moment. Get a true, complex piano experience.
Enjoy what this advanced keyboard can offer. This Yamaha Clavinova uses multiple techniques to produce the most authentic playing experience. So, the technique you practise on this instrument will be suitable for any other pianos you play, whether they're acoustic or digital. A Graded Hammer 3X Keyboard (GH3X) is crucial to this. It will give you the same resistance, which varies from the lower to the higher end of the keyboard, as an acoustic. In fact, the GH3X uses the same hammering system and spring-less mechanism as a concert grand, to really give you the key return you want.
You'll see authentic details down to the finest click. Few digital pianos go so far in their recreation as to produce the slight click that comes with an escapement mechanism. But, the Clavinova CSP 150 has an escapement mechanism in its keyboard too, which has been designed so its click is only discernible on the lightest keystrokes, just like a grand. More impressive touches are the keyboard stabilizers to all 88 keys, which are unique Yamaha mechanisms for improved keyboard stability and durability.
Extra digital perks
Going digital means you get more than a piano. You can really experiment with the CSP 150 digital thanks to its full orchestra of Yamaha's Super Articulation Voices. These instrument tones are sampled down to characteristics like the "fret noise" or "body knocks" from a guitar. They have the details so you'll sound like you're a virtuoso flautist or violinist. Get a taste of being a master of a new instrument.
Take this a step further with the Accompaniment Styles. Now you can get the feeling of being accompanied by anything from small jazz ensembles to full orchestras. Either way, you're in control of the chords and harmonies these virtual musicians play. You know these accompaniments will be top-quality, as in keeping with Yamaha's standards, the Accompaniment Styles function has been developed by professional session musicians so you get studio-quality backing.
External device connection
Who said pianos had to be traditional? The Smart Pianist app offers a range of features that places you in control. The app enables you to select instrument voices, adjust various settings, record your performance, and much more! You will find yourself making music faster with this app as it gives you the freedom to do it via your smart device.
Want to play along with your favourite songs? Now you can! Smart Pianist scans the audio songs loaded in your music library, analyses the chord progressions, and then displays them for you on the screen of your smart device. It's that simple. Play along as the chords scroll by, all the while hearing the song playback through your piano's speaker system. Loading MIDI songs into the app will also allow you to follow along with digital sheet music while you play. Please note: Smart Pianist functionality may vary dependent on the model of Yamaha piano used.
