What Yamaha say.....

Featuring the Real Grand Expression (RGE) Sound Engine for outstanding playing response and the Natural Wood X (NWX) keyboard with escapement, and with synthetic ivory keytops for classic piano touch, the CVP-705 offers extremely high-quality piano performance.
But you'll also get a level of musical fun and interactivity only found on Yamaha CVP Clavinovas. Choose from hundreds of ultra-realistic instrument Voices. Learn to play hit songs with professionally-arranged accompaniment. Plug-in a microphone to sing-along with on-screen lyrics for karaoke fun. Plus, you can add lush harmonies to your singing voice with virtual backup singers. The color touch panel is simple to understand and makes operating a wide selection of functions quick and easy. You can also wirelessly connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to easily share the music you make with friends. With the CVP-705, endless musical fun is always close at hand.

Over a century of piano building experience culminates in a truly modern instrument.
Experience a purely digital piano with the heart of a true grand. You'll feel the difference from the very first notes you play. Realistic touch and response, paired with the unmistakeable tone of the finest concert grand pianos ever made, the Clavinova delivers expressive capabilities and a dynamic range that redefines the standard for digital pianos today.

Your dream piano studio awaits.
The enhanced Piano Room now includes the world-class Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial grand pianos, plus vintage electric pianos. In Session Mode, you can invite three virtual musicians into the room to "jam" with you as you practice and perform in one of 40 different musical styles. These session musicians will automatically follow your harmonies and your volume expression using the new Dynamics Control feature. You can selectively activate and deactivate each one depending on your musical needs at the time. Within this special room, you can even record your sessions with the touch of a single button.

Variety is the spice of life.
The CVP-705 features hundreds of high-quality instrument Voices including "Natural!", "Sweet!" and "Cool!" Voices sampled specially to compliment the instrument types. Yamaha's Super Articulation Voices (SA) add genuine performance attributes of the real musical instruments as though they were being naturally performed by a virtuoso of that instrument instead of from the keys of a piano keyboard. Examples include "fret noise" or "body knocks" from a guitar or the "inhales", "exhales" and glissandos from wind instruments. By simply varying your touch and playing techniques or using the pedals, SA voices will add significant authenticity to your sound.

When you want to play more than just piano.
One of the defining features of a CVP Clavinova is the multitude of different Styles that can be controlled in real-time by playing chords on the keyboard. Accompaniment Styles introduce ensembles of virtual musicians to your performances in a variety of musical genres. From small jazz ensembles to full orchestras, you control what chords or harmony they play by what YOU play, plus you control the dynamic of the ensemble. Developed by professional session musicians from around the world, Styles add authentic, studio-quality backing players to your performances - even when you play by yourself. You can use Styles to add embellishing Intros, Endings & Fill-Ins and even arrange songs in real-time.

Now anyone can play a hit song, one light at a time.
CVP Clavinovas are very patient: if you don't play the right notes, they wait until you do! This is made possible with the CVP's unique Guide feature. As the easiest way to play a song, the Follow Lights library teaches you popular melodies in a way only possible on a CVP Clavinova. Just follow the lights one note at a time, and fully-arranged orchestrations and arpeggios embellish your playing. Here, you don't play along with a recording, the recording literally plays along with YOU. You can connect a microphone to enjoy singing along with your keyboard performance or using Karaoke song files from YamahaMusicSoft.com. All input jacks are conveniently located at the front of the instrument, under the keybed for easy access. Alternatively, you can connect a portable music device such as an MP3 player or smart phone to enjoy listening through the Clavinova's high-definition speaker system. *Vocal Harmony is only available on the CVP709GP/709/705.

Two world class concert grands in one digital piano.
Two world class pianos are contained within the CVP Clavinova. 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, one of the oldest piano manufacturers in the world and a brand held in high esteem by pianists throughout its long history. These renowned pianos are characterized by distinctive traits such as power, versatility, subtlety, lightness and mellowness.

Both of these superb pianos' Voices are featured by name in the Clavinova. Tuned to perfection by a highly experienced piano technician and having the sound from each key recorded individually, Clavinova truly captures the unique tonal character of each of these outstanding instruments. With Clavinova, you can choose from and enjoy the amazing digital reproductions of the exquisite beauty tone that only the Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial can deliver.

Superb playability and feel.
NWX (Natural Wood X) keyboards are created using Yamaha's unrivaled expertise acquired through more than a century of crafting fine acoustic pianos. The material used for NWX keyboards is cut from wood that has been carefully dried specifically for use in making musical instruments. Only the best wood from the finest part of the tree is selected, resulting in a keyboard that is more resistant to buckling and warping than common laminated wood keyboards.

The NWX keyboard also features an escapement mechanism that reproduces the feel of an acoustic piano as it goes through the let-off and drop of the hammer when a key is played very softly. The action has been designed in such a way that the escapement is discernible only on the lightest keystrokes, similar to the keyboard of a grand piano. Synthetic ivory keytops 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.

For a sound that truly resonates with the listener.
In a grand piano, strings and sounds resonate throughout the entire body of the instrument producing a rich reverberation that envelops the listener in sound. Not only are the strings you are playing vibrating, but other strings ring as a reaction to ones you play. This is one reason the piano's sound is so complex and rich.

This phenomena is reproduced perfectly in the Clavinova through Virtual Resonance Modeling (VRM) which calculates the various states of the strings for each of the 88 notes on the keyboard from one instant to the next. As a result, the Clavinova reflects the limitless number of factors inherent in playing an acoustic piano such as which keys are pressed, the strength with which the keys are played and pedal timing.

A new kind of headphone experience.
Unique to Yamaha, the Stereophonic Optimizer adjusts the spacing of the sound and the separation from the piano when listening via the headphones, resulting in a spacious sound image that will inspire you to play for hours at a time. Using this private listening environment, the sound of the Clavinova appears to come from the body of the instrument rather than from the headphones, providing a more realistic and naturally comfortable experience.

The Clavinova is ready for your Session.
The Piano Room features the world-class Yamaha CFX and Bösendorfer Imperial concert grand pianos and has been expanded to include additional keyboard instruments including vintage electric pianos. In Session Mode, you can invite three additional session musicians into the room to accompany you as you practice and perform in 40 different musical styles. These session musicians will automatically follow your harmonies in either full-keyboard mode or split mode, and will also follow your volume expression using Dynamics Control. These session musicians can selectively be activated and deactivated depending upon your musical needs at the time. Within this special room you can even record your sessions with the touch of one button.

All you need to know is the song. The Clavinova does the rest.
Music Finder is great when you are looking for just the right Style or Voice combinations so YOU can perform a particular song. Simply choose the name of the song you want to play from the Music Finder list and the CVP will call up the proper settings so you can get playing right away. These settings were created by professional musicians from around the world specializing in particular genres of music.

Can't remember the name of a song? No problem. Just play!
The Style Recommender is an intelligent function that allows you to find a Style that suits the type of music you feel like playing. You don't even need to know the name of the song; the rythmic feel alone will do. Just play a bar or two of a simple rhythm or piano tune and a list of Styles that match your playing will instantly be displayed.

An automatic page turner with Guide Lamps to light the way.
Follow along with the bouncing ball shown on the score as you play to be sure of never losing your place. Pages turn automatically or you can flip through pages by swiping the screen horizontally. If reading music isn't your forté, you can follow the guide lamps above the keyboard that will show you the correct keys. With guide activated, CVP will wait until you play the correct note so you can practice at your own pace.

Sing in perfect Harmony... with yourself!
You can enjoy karaoke backing with songs stored in your Clavinova or downloaded from YamahaMusicsoft.com. The lyrics are shown on the display* and the words change color as the song advances, so you know exactly when to come in. You can even display the lyrics on a big TV screen so everyone can join in! *Only if the song data includes lyrics. Plug in a microphone, and you can sing along with your playing. The Vocal Harmony 2 (VH2) engine creates advanced sounding harmonies, enriching your voice and is even capable of correcting your pitch!

Get in touch with the features you use most.
This easy-to-understand touch screen makes the CVP simple to operate: you can touch, slide, swipe or rotate contents in the screen to access different functions and make adjustments. Adjustable brightness ensures an easy-to-read screen in all situations. Other buttons on the panel are laid out in easy-to-see and reach locations.

If you want it to, the Clavinova will even talk to you!
When Voice Guide is active, the Clavinova speaks information from the current display or operation being executed. This allows those who have visual impairments to enjoy playing and using the instrument.

Customize the control panel as you like.
You decide what functions appear on the touch screen and which are assigned to special panel buttons.

- Bookmarks for your favorite Voices and Styles in one convenient button
- Shortcuts on the Home display for your most used "apps" from the MENU display
- Assign your most used functions to the ASSIGNABLE buttons on the panel.

Turn a USB device into an portable recording studio.
The USB Audio Recorder* allows you to record your performances on a USB flash drive for emailing, uploading to the internet or sending to your MP3 player. This lets you compare two different performances to gauge your progress or allows you to share your music with friends and family. *Stored as .WAV file.

Optimal tone at any volume level.
When playing in a home environment, people often enjoy the Clavinova at much less than full volume. However, the physics of sound at low volumes results in a loss of treble and bass. On a Clavinova, however, the Intelligent Acoustic Control (IAC) automatically adjusts the sound so you enjoy proper excellent bass and treble sound balance even at low volumes. Additionally, the volume dial automatically makes fine adjustments to the overall sound of the speaker system (EQ) at low volume. This ability to adjust volume without losing the rich and balanced sound is an exclusive Yamaha benefit, ensuring you always play with the utmost sound quality.

Wireless audio and wireless MIDI with iOS devices.
If you use an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, Yamaha apps will make playing more convenient and enjoyable. Quickly set the ideal Voice and accompaniment Style for the song you'd like to play. Record your own performance and share it with a friend. Add to visual effects to your performance with computer animation that repsonds to what you play. Check out the apps and find the ones that meet your needs. Several Yamaha apps are designed to work only with Clavinova digital pianos.

Note: Some apps require a connection to your instrument. Wired connections are possible with devices such as the Yamaha i-MX1, i-UX1 or Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. Wireless connection may require a wireless router. Wireless audio connection requires bundled USB wireless LAN device.

Teach your iPad to play by ear.
With this exciting Yamaha app, your iOS devices will listen to recordings of virtually any song* and tell you the chords required for playing it. Bring the song file into the CVP where guide lamps can show you how to play those chords, and also teach your virtual backing band to play along with you using Styles. Yamaha's exclusive Chord Tracker app is optimized to work with CVP Clavinovas for unlimited self-taught musical possibilities. *Recordings must be in MP3 or WAV formats on your iOS device.
