Description

What Reidys say...

The Yamaha CLP535 uses samples of two grand pianos to simulate the sound of real acoustic ones. Yamaha have chosen to use sounds from their own CFX grand piano and the Bosendorf Imperial, creating a greater variety of piano sounds than in the CLP525. Variety is a key feature of the CLP535 as it contains a total of 34 different voices , a tool which is perfect to enhance your creativity. The synthetic ivory key tops are a great addition to the instrument as they assist in creating the sensation of playing a grand piano. Along with the 525 , the 535 has impeccable control of the dynamic range through its use of multi-sampling. The use of multi-sampling creates a smooth change between the different dynamic levels and the response of the 535 is almost dissimilar to that of a grand piano when different pressures are applied to the keys. This piano is fantastically suited to players of all abilities and styles.

"There have been some really nice touches to the new CLP500 range. The sounds are great again (as they always are in Clavinovas!), however Yamaha have included the voice of the Yamaha CFX grand piano and the Bosendorfer Imperial. These are two amazing sounding pianos and it is nice to have them at your fingertips in a digital piano. They have also improved the polyphony on the early models in the CLP range, allowing you to play the more complex pieces that are suited to the beautiful sound of the Imperial and CFX.

One of my favourite features is the synthetic Ivory keytops used on this piano. I always find this to be a really nice thing as it makes the digital piano feel a lot more realistic to an acoustic piano, and it is nice to see that they have included this across the range. There is also the new IAC (Intelligent Acoustic Control). At lower volumes, our ears attenuate certain frequencies differently, so bass and treble becomes more difficult to hear. Yamaha have developed this new feature to allow you to play at low volumes, but still be able to hear a rich, balanced tone at any volume, meaning you can carry on practising without disturbing the rest of the house!

The CLP535 has some nice features above the model below. It has the new GH3X keyboard inside it, which adds escapement to the keys, something that is normally only found on Grand Piano actions. It has 6 touch sensitivity ranges, a vast range of voices (34 instead of 10), an LCD screen, 16 track recorder and upgraded speakers, which adds depth and richness of tone to the instrument.

What Yamaha say...

NEW CLP range
The true grand piano experience has never been more accessible than with Yamaha's new Clavinova CLP Series. Complex sample sets, painstakingly borrowed from Yamaha's flagship CFX concert grand, plus the magnificent Bösendorfer Imperial, offer a unique choice of sound. And with Virtual Resonance Modeling, as well as string and damper resonance, the subtle nuances of a grand performance are at your fingertips. Meanwhile, realistic touch, synthetic ivory keytops and an escapement mechanism, make the new Clavinova CLP Series feel just like its acoustic counterpart.

Real Grand Expression: Sound, touch and pedals, all perfectly integrated to give you the sensation of playing a grand piano.
  Real Grand Expression; a phrase that defines the expressive capability of Clavinova. It is the key components of the sound, the touch and the pedals, together with the application of technology developed through a history of acoustic piano manufacturing. With Real Grand Expression, these elements are combined perfectly into a single instrument, creating the exact sound you want through the touch of the keys and the feel of the pedals. When you play a Clavinova, you can imagine that you are playing a grand piano.

Two of the world's finest grands...
The CFX, Yamaha’s finest concert grand selected and played by the winner of the 2010 International Chopin Piano Competition and the Imperial from Bösendorfer, a brand held in high esteem by pianists throughout its long history. These renowned pianos are characterised by distinctive traits such as power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness.

Both of these superb pianos’ Voices are featured in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by a highly experienced piano technician with the sound from each key sampled individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of these outstanding instruments. With Clavinova, you can enjoy the exquisite beauty of the sought-after tone that the CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial deliver.

Smooth tonal transitions, perfectly matched to the player's touch
  A pianist changes the volume and dynamics of the sound by varying the pressure applied to the keys. A Clavinova responds perfectly to give the player an outstanding level of performance control. By using long, carefully-sampled recordings of notes on a piano and unique Yamaha technologies to achieve smooth tonal transitions, rich sonic detail is delivered in response to the touch of the player.

Reproducing the resonance and reverberation of an acoustic piano
The Clavinova faithfully recreates the sound of an acoustic piano by utilising features such as String Resonance to emulate the mellow tonal colors that occur when strings react to one another. The result is a beautiful tone with rich, deep reverberation.

In addition to the reverberation of the strings themselves, Damper Resonance reproduces the broad, deep sound field of an acoustic piano. It also mirrors the tonal changes that result when a damper pedal on a grand piano is depressed. It includes sounds such as those emitted from the key bed and emulates the cumulative resonance that occurs when all of these sounds blend together.

Key-off samples
The moment a pianist’s fingers are lifted from the keys of a grand piano, subtle changes occur in the instrument’s tone as the damper is lowered onto the strings to mute the sound. Key-off samples feature actual recordings of these changes, offering a faithful reproduction of the most subtle nuances in the piano’s tone, creating a more realistic overall sound

From staccato to legato, superbly expressive sound that responds to the player's touch
  Featuring Yamaha's Smooth Release technology, Clavinova recreates the crisp tone heard when playing staccato as well as the lingering sound produced by releasing the keys slowly.

256-note polyphony
Powerful polyphony ensures that more complex passages of music can be played without notes cutting off.

Synthetic Ivory key tops
Synthetic Ivory key tops reproduce the tactile surface of the Ivory keyboards once used in acoustic pianos. It features highly absorbent material that prevents fingers from slipping even after hours of performing, while retaining the ideal texture and feel.

Graded Hammer 3X (GH3X) keyboard

Using knowledge gained from many years of piano manufacturing, Yamaha Clavinova has an incredibly realistic keyboard feel that recreates the sensation of playing an acoustic instrument. By using a similar hammer mechanism (with no springs) as that found in a grand piano, the GH3 keyboard action reproduces the touch of an acoustic instrument, from the heavier feel in the lower register to the lighter touch in the upper octaves. It also features a three-sensor configuration which accurately senses and interprets the behaviour of the keyboard to create a response and feel very much like that of a grand piano.

The newly developed GH3X keyboard features an escapement mechanism that reproduces a slight clicking sensation near the bottom of the key travel. It has been designed in such a way that the click is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano.

Keyboard Stabilizers for improved stability and durability
  The keyboard fulfills the vital role of transforming the emotion from your fingertips into sound and therefore, it must respond in a stable and consistent manner. That is why Yamaha has fitted keyboard stabilizers to all 88 keys, giving the player a natural feel and improving the stability and durability of the keyboard.

Full-bodied tone and resonance
The sound of a Clavinova is calibrated in fine detail, with speaker positioning and body materials checked to ensure that the entire instrument resonates optimally. To create a sound field that is very close to that of a grand piano, the Clavinova features tone escapements in several locations throughout the body that allow the sound from the speakers to be projected to the listener without being trapped inside the instrument.

A natural feel throughout the length of the key
  The keys on a Clavinova are constructed so that the fulcrum is as far from the key tip as possible. This improves playability and comfort, especially when pressing at the back of the key. This construction provides good key travel, even when performing pieces played mainly on the black keys and the backs of the white keys, allowing nuanced variations in touch and broadening your expressive range.

Acoustic Optimizer
The body of the Clavinova contains Acoustic Optimizers that regulate the flow of sound and control tone. A new technology developed from Yamaha's intimate knowledge of the acoustic properties of musical instruments, Acoustic Optimizers deliver a natural, smooth sound across the entire keyboard.

IAC (Intelligent Acoustic Control)
  The ability to adjust performance volume is extremely useful at home where players may not always be able to play at high volume levels. However, at low volumes, bass and treble may become difficult to hear. To counter this, Clavinova is equipped with Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC), which adjusts the sound automatically, allowing players to enjoy balanced sound at any volume level.

Multi-track song recording
The recording function featured in Clavinova digital pianos allows you to record your performances with a single touch, which is useful when you want to review or archive your playing. You can record up to 2 tracks for simultaneous playback, so that each hand can be recorded separately or parts recorded using different sounds.

USB Audio Recorder
Record performances to USB flash memory and create audio files (WAV format) you can save and play back on a computer or portable audio device, share with friends or use to create a CD.

Easy-to-use interface
  An easy-to-read LCD and intuitive layout enable simple operation of your Clavinova, giving you more time to focus on playing.

New reverb that offers dynamic ambience and spatial effects
A new reverb system allows to you experience the sensation of playing in a large concert hall, cathedral or other venue, adding depth and atmosphere to the sound. Now you can experience concert hall ambience and spaciousness in the privacy of your own home.

A comprehensive range of keyboard voices
In addition to pianos, the Clavinova CLP Series boasts an impressive library of additional voices including electric pianos, strings and organs. Enjoy the freedom to choose the ideal voice for the genre of music you want to play.
