Natural Wood X Keyboard
Play with the unrivalled warmth of natural wood. With the material for these exceptional keyboards, Yamaha have used their vast experience to select the finest pieces to go beneath your fingers. You see this in that only the finest part of each tree is used. With such quality, you get a keyboard that resists buckling and warping much more than common laminated wood.
Add to this beautiful material the three-sensor configuration, natural key return, and authentic response from its mechanisms, and you get a truly natural playing experience. This keyboard is weighted more heavily in the lower notes and then gradually gets lighter the higher you get, just like an acoustic. This authenticity means the CSP 170 digital piano prepares you for anything. Learning correct technique on a keyboard that is weighted in this way means you'll be able to sit down and play any piano, acoustic or digital.
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 170 digital piano.
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 170. This technology calculates the effects of all 88 notes from moment to moment. Get a true, complex piano experience.
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 170 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 170 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.
